Daddy and I went on a date last night. It's so nice to be able to have a conversation in the car without being interrupted by sound effects from one boy or another.
We went to a dinner and movie place. We saw The Book of Eli, which we liked.
They were late on our food, so we got a free entree.
My niece said the kids were both good. I was happy about that. She usually doesn't have a problem with them, except for the first time she watched Isaak. He wouldn't go to sleep for her, he used to be a bare about going to sleep at night time. Now we have no problems getting him down. It's him waking up in the middle of the night from teething that can be a problem!
I've blogged about this before...both of my kids were always slow in the cutting teeth department.
They both cut like one or two at a time. I remember with Mica, we had to grind up his meat even after he turned a year old. It seemed like that kid was going to eat baby food for the rest of his life. He was poor at using his spoon too! I couldn't tell if he was into baby food still because of having less teeth then the average kid, or if his funky tongue was the culprit. But...he eventually ate big kid food.
Isaak's not as bad as Mica was, he ate big kid food before he hit a year and has no problem using his spoon. But...he is a kid that cuts two teeth nearly all the time.
Isaak goes to bed easily, but lately he's been waking up 2 or 3 times at night. When he's not cutting teeth, he sleeps sound, all night.
Last night he barely ate his dinner too. So maybe he was hungry. We gave him Motrin, and a few crackers.
I walked in the house after work yesterday, and could feel the stress.
Cousin's Elijah and Evan were just fine.
It was our kid's turn to test the waters.
Daddy's hair was a mess! He just was annoyed with Isaak that was so fussy and Mica who has to have someone play trains with him 8 hours a day. I'm exaggerating about the 8 hours, but I hear all the time, "I need someone to play Team GeoTrax with me!"
How does this work you might be asking? The Mom or Dad makes one phone call to this company, leaves a message, then they call everyone on your list with your recorded message.
I would have loved this. My sister Terra and I had a deal. I emailed all her friends and family when she delivered and she emailed all mine when I had my kiddo's.
I had to have c-sections with both of my kids, so I was in a recovery room for awhile before I even got to hold my own babies. Then when I got to see them, I wanted to be with them, not inform people of them. One phone call does it all!
I have a friend that has twins and is expecting in June. I will give this to her if I win.
I made Chicken Bitki for my parents last night. It's a Polish dish. Grandma Spiehs asked for Chicken Binki.
I made all the Chicken Bitki and put a couple of Isaak's binki's on the plate. It was a joke, since Grandma called it Chicken Binki.
For the record, Isaak hasn't had a binki for a long time. I think he was 5 or 6 months when he stopped sucking on a binki. We took them away because he kept throwing them out of his crib. We figured that if he didn't want it in his mouth, it was a sign that he didn't need it anymore. I kept them for some reason. Actually I think I kept them because of me dressing up as a baby for Halloween.
If I win guess who I'm giving my prize to? My Mom of course. This would be a perfect thing for her considering that she is laying around on the couch for awhile from having surgery on her ankle and foot. You can win to just by entering at Go Graham Go.
