We woke up to yet another snowy morning (slushy snow that is melting fast), we said goodbye to "Oma & Opa" (a.k.a. G & G Toews) who were visiting this week from Saskatoon, we decided against going to playgroup because of some car issues and Keziah's cold/poor napping these days, we all went for a dip in the hot tub in the rain, we made cookies (and left the kitchen in a disaster) and now Micah is sleeping and I'm waiting for Keziah to tucker herself out so I can have a little time to myself...
Keziah has been a bear this week. I think it's part cold, part teething. I'm exhausted and spent by the end of the day. She hasn't been happy unless I'm right on the floor with her or carrying her around. She's not getting any lighter either and my poor wrists feel like they're going to fall off (I have weak wrists to begin with so this isn't helping). It's hard to judge how much I should cater to her when she's like this and how much I just need to let her fuss and cry (and believe me I don't really have the choice not to let her cry when she's like this). I'm already praying that God will give me a really easy baby the next time around (which isn't anytime soon in case you're wondering).
We had a couple of failed attempts at naptime this morning and finally I just let her wander around with her nukie and her blankie:
She did finally nap this morning and then almost slept through lunch. So, now her schedule's way off and I'm guessing Micah may be up from his nap before she even goes down for hers.
Micah's 2nd swimming lesson didn't go as well as his first. The teacher was getting a little more daring in dipping the kids under when they would jump in the pool and Micah got a nose-full of water. He cried so hard that he was starting to throw up. But this morning when I took the kids in the hot tub, we practiced humming while we put our faces in and it worked! Micah was getting quite confident with blowing bubbles and putting his mouth & nose in. So, hopefully his next lesson will be better.
There's not too much more to say, but here are a few more pictures from the last few days:
