We have had a fairly good week. We spent Memorial Day with our friends Katie, Kris, Micah, and Claire. The kids all had a blast playing outside together.
Wednesday morning we had speech therapy with Miss Lawson. Lindy seems to talk a ton, except when her therapists are here! She doesn’t talk much when she is really concentrating and I guess her therapists make her concentrate a lot! She eventually did start saying a lot of things. She really likes playing with the potato head and the cootie bugs. Will also had a good session. We all got to play with play-doh which is always fun.
Thursday was a crazy day for us. The kids got their hair cut in the morning and Lindy had a hearing appointment in the afternoon. Not to mention that we had the rescue mission come pick up our leftover garage sale items and two different companies come give us moving quotes. Busy day! The kids look much better with their hair cuts and we are SO happy to get Lindy’s hearing aids back. The loaners screeched really badly and Lindy’s don’t. They basically got all new electrical stuff inside so they are basically brand new hearing aids We hope to not have anymore trouble with them for awhile!
Friday was a busy day, but not really for the kids. I went to the March of Dimes award luncheon, grocery store, and that night we all went with a Sunday school class out to eat.
Today we have had a fun day. I hooked up the sprinkler for the first time and let the kids try it out this morning. Will was a little timid at first but pretty quickly was running up to it and having fun. Lindy only liked it when I ran through it with her. She pitched a fit if I tried to put her down. We also had a visit from GrandBob and Suzette which the kids enjoyed. Will woke up on the shy side of the bed but eventually loosened up.
Lindy has had some issues this week. Her first issue is diarrhea. I’m certain it is antibiotic induced diarrhea. Poor girl is getting a red bum and she is not enjoying it. Her other issue is that two nights this week she has gone to bed, cried and thrown up. We really are at a loss as to what to do with her. She is completely fine until we finish the night-night books and start taking off her glasses and hearing aids. Then she starts crying. She’s started doing this every night but then Wed. and Fri. nights she eventually threw up. Both times when we have gone in to clean up after we’ve heard her throw up, she will laugh and play with us. It just seems like if something was wrong, if her tummy hurt or something, she’d act like it before we put her in her bed. Is she throwing up because she feels bad or is she crying hard to get our attention and get us back in there and she makes herself throw up? We’ve gotten smart enough to put blankets down in front of her bed but Friday night she projectile vomited and cleared the blankets. As Drew and I are scrubbing the floor she is jumping around in her bed having a grand old time. She is almost 3 years old. I pretty much refuse to rock her to sleep each night. We had a good sleeping year in 2009, she basically never threw up. They had colds in March and then went into allergies and it seems she does it pretty often now. Anyone have advice for us?
Anywho, enough regurgitation talk. On to the pictures.
We painted the sidewalk with water one night. They had fun until Lindy dumped the bucket and got her pants all wet. And then got to play outside with no pants. Pre-haircuts. Post haircuts. (Lindy’s bangs seem a little short but she wasn’t a very easy or willing customer!) Their new favorite thing to do is holds hands and walk around together. Playing in the sprinkler! Not sure at first…. But he eventually loved it! Lindy decided to go in one time… But pretty quickly decided she did not like it! She also didn’t much like sitting in the grass. She did like it when I ran with her but I couldn’t get any pictures of that because I was by myself with the kids. Having fun this evening.
