March Madness 2010

It’s that time of year again…where basketball is on in our house for four days straight. I haven’t watched much this year though. But our beloved Wake Forest Demon Deacons squeaked out an overtime win Thursday night. Go Deacs!

The kids have had a rather quiet week but I sure have been busy. Lindy had hearing therapy on Tuesday morning and the kids had a ball opening Easter eggs. We are working hard on the ‘o’ sound so we have been saying ‘open’ a lot lately. I finally brought up some eggs for Will to play with and he’s had a ball with them. He says ‘egg’ pretty clearly.

I have been busy doing March of Dimes Ambassador stuff. I delivered goody bags to one of the NICU’s in town and had to give a speech at an elementary school. The community director emailed me today with a couple more speeches. I’m getting a little tired of hearing myself talk :)

The weather has been beautiful this week. Wednesday we ran an errand and stopped by the park for a few minutes. I pretty much can only go to the park with Drew. I can’t be at the bottom of the slide and helping Lindy crawl up the equipment at the same time. The kids had a blast crawling up and going down the slide, over and over! We were able to get out today too – this time we actually had to put shorts on since it was so warm. The kids are loving their swing set this year. Both are figuring out how to climb up the ladder and they love the slide. They have been swinging a lot too. All the hard work Daddy did last year is being put to good use this year!

Lindy and Will did get haircuts today. We went to town and went to Target first and then they got their haircut. They both did great today. I had them sitting on my lap but neither minded Anita messing with them. I hate taking them to get haircuts and hate paying for it, but they look so cute afterwards. I’m more of a once or twice a year kind of girl and they are getting theirs cut every two months.

We had a couple bad diaper days this week. One morning I went to change Lindy and found her diaper had exploded. The actual diaper. All the absorbent stuff inside was everywhere. It was a mess to clean up. She had footed pj’s on so thankfully it was contained inside that. Later that evening at the park Will went poop and we waited to get home to change it. I guess the sliding on poo over and over will make it come out the sides of the diaper. Learned a lesson on that one. Then the next morning both kids were soaking wet. They even had to have their sheets changed. I think it was a freak thing because they haven’t soaked any diapers in forever.

I’ve lost track of how many bed changes Lindy has had this week. Monday night she went to sleep fine but woke up crying a little later. We could hear she was getting really worked up so I picked her up and rocked her. But she wouldn’t go back to sleep so I took her back to her bed and she threw up. Another night I put them down and she immediately started crying and eventually made herself throw up. Then the urine soaked bed. It’s been a tough week for Lindy’s bed! I even woke up sick in the middle of the night one night. Hopefully no more throw up for awhile. We never really figured out why Lindy is getting sick. Other nights she goes to bed completely normal. She keeps us on our toes.

And now for some pictures……

Sharing a toy…a rare eventDSC_0958Cute Will pictures.DSC_0976 He was matching the animals up with the pictures in the book.DSC_0980 We’ve had some temper tantrums this week. They are getting good at them. Lindy likes to hold her breath and fall to the ground. Will immediately falls to the ground and has added in some nice rolling around moves to his tantrums.DSC_0964 DSC_1019 Lindy has had some crazy hair this week.DSC_0973 DSC_0985 Will learned to blow on his hot food this week. By the way, he was eating spaghetti squash and had no clue he was eating a vegetable!DSC_1022 By the end of St. Patrick’s Day Lindy had pulled off all her clovers so she had a no leaf clover.DSC_1026 I gave the kids pink lemonade and it didn’t go over well.DSC_1028 Good times at the fridge together.DSC_1033 Good times in mommy and daddy’s bed this morning.DSC_1035 New haircuts….DSC_1044 DSC_1049 Both kids got boo boo’s outside while playing today. And I did too. Three of the four of us were bleeding. The kids got skinned knees and I got something in my thumb. We still had fun outside. Will wore his first band-aid today.DSC_1080 DSC_1077 Future t-ball stars, even if Will refuses to hold the correct end of the bat.DSC_1070 DSC_1065 The kid’s hairdresser told me how to get rid of Will’s dry scalp. She said to put baby oil on him before a bath and then scrub his head in the tub. Here’s the slick Willy version of his hair!DSC_1085
