Keziah trying her first Baby Mum Mum: (I tried giving her cheerios today and she really gagged on them, so we'll wait awhile before we try those again!)
Sunday after church:
Break out the summer dresses!
I got several comments/questions about Keziah's “potty training” a few posts back and forgot to respond. We hadn't intended on starting her on the potty but I just tried it once and it worked so great that I wanted to keep doing it! It’s pretty obvious when she’s about to go #2 so if I notice her getting really still and starting to grunt then I know it's time to get her to the potty! Sometimes we miss it (like if she goes while she’s still in her crib after a nap) but for the times we do catch it, it often saves us a diaper – or at least the yucky clean-up!
Anyway! Back to the weekend...
We celebrated Nathan & Erik’s birthdays (& Canada Day) at Doug & Elissa’s place on Sunday night with supper & ice cream cake. While we waited for it to get dark we watched Micah’s new favourite movie, Cars. (He seriously can't get enough of it!)
At 9:30 pm we headed out to Rotary Stadium for the fireworks. Micah was enthralled and has not stopped talking about it. Erik wore Keziah in the mei tai for the first time and loved it. She was awake for the show and moved her arms & legs in fierce excitement!
Micah was colouring in the nude yesterday afternoon…
Another little side note: Micah’s sleeping has been really awful lately. Putting him down to sleep has been an ordeal again. We’re trying to figure out the balance between naptime sleep and nighttime sleep. And a couple of late nights on the weekend kind of threw everything off. So today I didn't let him nap for the first time ever - he's never gone a day without at least a catnap. But now it's almost 7:30 and he is WIRED! Seriously, he doesn't seem sleepy at all. I don't get it! He only fell asleep last night at about 9:30 and then woke up at 6:30 (that's only 9 hours). Then he didn't sleep a wink today and now he's so hyper that he's putting the energizer bunny to shame! Why, why, WHY?
We had the 'fam' down again last night for a BBQ supper and a little Canadian Idol. Why it's on at 9 and not 8, I just don't understand! That means we have to vote until midnight to get in our full two hours!! And we noted that they didn't show Greg's Abbotsford "blurb" last night - maybe at the results show tomorrow??
We all enjoyed the summer evening. Big brother Micah even took his little sis for a ride in his car...
Later, while Erik & I put the kids to bed, the rest of the gang got in a little bocce ball:
That's all I have to report today! I just killed a mosquito and that's about the tenth one today. I know, I know, all you prairie folks are laughing at me right now, but seriously, that's odd for Abbotsford...
Oh, and the house is quiet - Micah finally fell asleep at 7:40. Thank you Lord!!
