1 - I am so tired. I've been getting pretty good sleep - L and B sleep through the night and J wakens only once for a quick bottle and right back to bed. But no matter how many hours of sleep I have, 6 or 7 or 8 or even 9, I still feel like crud in the morning.
2 - James has a bottom right tooth, ladies and gentlemen! And I didn't even know he was teething!
3 - He is also sitting now. His physical therapist wants him to be able to transition from laying to sitting and to work on reaching across "midline" to play with toys, etc. I guess at 8 mo (he's 7.5) most babies would be doing that but I sometimes think that doctors and therapists are trained to find things wrong and would have found much fault with my other two kids.
4 - Lydia turned 3 on Tuesday. Her birthday party is tomorrow. Everything will be pink, per her initial request. I say "initial" because on her birthday she told me that purple is now her favorite color and everything should be purple for her birthday.
5 - Last night Lydia was practicing writing. "How do you spell 'cat'?" she asked. "C-A-T," I told her. A minute later she was holding up her paper with "CAT" printed clearly. We were impressed.
6 - A friend called and offered to babysit the kids so Travis and I could go out. It was awesome and we were happy to take her up on it. Wednesday was a much needed date night for the two of us and the kids were very happy to spend time playing with our lovely friend.
7 - It feels like I've been potty training Lydia for a year. Oh wait - I have! When is this girl finally going to get it?!
