At age 2 and 3, I think the most fun thing about fishing is the worms!
Then it was time to fish. Jordan broke this rod, but still had so much fun playing with it...
Lawson and Daddy
On the dock, getting ready to set sail!
Turns out Lawson was fascinated with the buoys. We ended up spending the whole time paddling around from buoy to buoy, only seeing the other sights en route!
The Westin--It's huge!
The Waterfall over the Rocks--Behind the Westin
The Sunset...Looking over toward the bridge and Connor's
The Hurricane Fay clouds blowing in... Pretty, as long as it's not raining! :)
So Jordan had her 2 year check-up today. While I was checking the diaper bag to make sure we had everything we needed, she was walking through the kitchen and accidentally stepped on a toy and slipped. She hit the CORNER of the WALL with her NOSE!! She instantly started screaming, and I was terrified that she had broken her face! I saw it from about 5 feet away but could do nothing about it. The scratch/bruise goes from the middle of her forehead to the bottom of her nose. TERRIBLE!! At least I was headed to the dr. anyways!! He didn't seem worried about it. This picture is about 4 hours after the incident. She has a bit of a runny nose, and a rash under her left eye....Tomorrow she'll probably have 2 black eyes!! Pretty much she's just a big mess!!!
Huge milestone this week!! We did it!!! Monday night was Jordan's first night out of her crib! It was also her first night without her paci(s)!! (We decided to traumatize her all at once!!!)
I noticed she was really interested in Lawson's big bed about 3-4 weeks ago--and would throw a fit when we would put her into her crib. I really wanted to get her a bed then, but we just couldn't spend any money that particular week! I have been nervous, though, b/c the last week or so she has really begun to love her crib and pacis. She would race to her crib, and then lay right down and fall asleep, holding 3 pacis and sticking a 4th in her mouth. Then at random times would switch a 'holder' for a mouth paci!! I was afraid we'd missed our threshold.
Following the messy house comment in yesterday's post I would like to elaborate on one factor of that equation...my house is also being OVERRUN by magazines!!
Last year my Northwest Airlines frequent flier account sent me a message that my miles were about to expire but I could redeem the miles for points then pick some magazines. We would get a year's subscription at absolutely no cost, but with the option to resubscribe if we wanted to.
Shortly after this Jon ordered me some flowers, then took some sort of survey to get free magazines or something.
Then he joined the NRA and got some free magazines...
So...I just want to post a list of the magazines that come to our house!!
Geesh! Anyone's kids have any projects coming up and need some magazines to cut pictures out of??? :)
For those of you who are close to passing out...NO I didn't really go on a run!!! :) That's sooooo not like me! :)
I'm referring to the beginning of August, where, supposedly I had plenty of blog fodder to fill my pages! Seriously, I had lots of posts. And right in a row! How fun is that!
But, sadly, all good things must come to an end. Why? Not sure... Maybe nothing to say. Maybe b/c I had company. Maybe b/c I'm tired!
Let me give a sampler of info...for your blog-browsing pleasure...
*Let me just say that my husband ROCKS!! He is so awesome! This morning he did my papers for me--that's a few shy of 400 regular papers. Then he did my weekly ads that I usually do on Wednesdays so I could go hang out at Anna's for a little bit this morning! (That's about 500 more papers.) He's gonna be so tired tonight, but I really appreciate him doing that for me b/c I have been getting to bed pretty late the last few nights!
*My mom was here for a little more than a week. It was a good visit and the kids truly enjoyed getting to play with Babo. I'm glad she makes an effort to come see them on their birthdays. It was also so nice of her to let me get some errands done--You know I take advantage of that whenever I can!!! :)
*Jordan is now sleeping in a big girl bed without her paci!! We did it all at once and she's doing great! It's a little bit more effort to get her to sleep now, but she's doing well for 2 big changes all at once! I'll probably post about this more extensively later...
*My house WILL NOT stay clean! I don't know if I've been busier than usual, or more tired than usual or having more company than usual or probably all three....but MAN! I can't keep the dishes caught up, and the floors swept up, and the laundry... The kids are sleeping now, and all I want to do is take a nap!
*I got an email today to tell me that someone had commented on a previous post. Pretty interesting...The one where Lawson was singing Blue Skies and Rainbows. Anyways...check it out...the 4th comment--pretty cool! :)
That may be all for now...I'm falling asleep at the computer...Guess I'll post more laterrkjdkfa;sjdkjtaks;ltjklllllllll.....ddda
