Couple of quick stories...

One day when dropping my son off at preschool I noticed he is a flirt. We go in and put his stuff in his cubby. Meanwhile there are some of the girls in his class running around the room. Well first off they are running and with my son this is very important because he doesn't walk anywhere. He goes over near the edge of where they are running and sweetly and slyly says, "Hellooo girls!"

When getting ready for bath or bedtime he likes to throw his clothes down the laundry chute. Well the clothes get a send-off now, for example he will throw his shirt down and say, " Bye-bye shirt see you when you get clean," and when he throws his pants down he says "Bye-bye pants have s good time getting clean."

Our little daughter its doing well, she is ready to start shopping. Sometimes we call her Itty Bitty, but one day going to school my son asked if she would be home when he was done with school and I said "Sure, Itty Bitty will be home" and was promptly corrected, "She is not Itty Bitty!"

Today was a good day too for my daughter as the stump left over from the cord fell off today, my son will be very excited in the morning as he has been waiting for her boo-boo with paper in it to go away.

Is it us or them?

My son, who is at the fun age of 3 1/2, I believe now hates both of us, still loves his baby sister but truly has a great dislike for us. He listens to us like a police officer listens to your story on why you were speeding, he just plain doesn't. He makes the simplest things the biggest struggle that he makes very easy on most others, like going potty or eating his lunch. Some days it seems we can do nothing right for him. People tell us he is just testing us because we are his parents but we are both college graduates, we passed all of our tests. It is hard making the rules, and then trying to enforce them. Well we are making a list so when we are older and he is taking care of us we can give it all back to him.

P.S. He is really a sweet boy, just some days it seems as if there is a little devil around. For those of you that know him I am sure it is hard to believe. I guess it is hard being 3.

Just a little update

With the new baby, I have been busy to say the least but I wanted to at least put an update so everyone knows how we are doing. Mom is doing quite well in her recovery. Our baby girl is just a little angel thus far, sleeping well except for when we wake her to feed her. Big Brother is doing well too. He is adjusting to the new baby but has been very good. I will try to post a couple of pictures of our little girl soon and add her to the title bar at the top.

On what has been going on, my son and I went to see Thomas the Train recently, it was our second time. He loved it and again I will post some pictures when I have a few more minutes than I currently have.

The bump on his head from the coffee table is healing nicely now and no longer looks like a different color of the rainbow every time you see him.

Baby Sister

As I have mentioned a few time throughout the blog we had a baby girl on the way. She is finally here. My son is excited but we are trying to make sure he doesn't get too jealous as newborns need constant care. I am sure he will find a way to work the system. This event did not go off easy either at least my son made sure of that. He was going to be staying at my parents house while we were in the hospital. About an hour before we left he tripped and banged his head on the coffee table, we thought the whole family would be in the hospital at that point, but he was alright. If you look at the picture below you can see some of the damage. All turned out well in the end as we recently arrived home with our new baby daughter.
