Getting Excited

Guess who's coming to town... Yia Yia and Papou!  They come in on Monday and we can hardly contain our excitement!

Christian is doing well with the new neighborhood and asks to go to the park every single day on the way home.  I give in most days but some days it's still a little too chilly.  Yesterday he had a rough time after school and wore me out.  It ended with him crying so hard he puked.  And what was this terrible thing I did that made him throw such a fit??? I told him he had to wear a hat to go outside.  I'm so evil! Then today he was the sweetest thing.  The moods of a two year old.  

He loves his big boy bed.  He just doesn't sleep all night.  He still wakes up almost every night and John has to go in there and lie down with him.  Thankfully he goes right back to sleep.  I still lie down with him to get him to go to sleep.  I love that time with him.  Tonight he asked me to rock him like a baby.  So sweet.  Then we talked about friends.  I asked him if his teachers were his friends and he said yeah.  Then I went through a whole list of people to which he responded yeah.  UNTIL we got to Pop and he said NO.  Then he laughed and laughed.  Watch out Pop.  You're on C's naughty list.

It doesn't take a degree in physics to figure out where that yellow ball is headed.  Granna hit poor C in the face.  Don't worry, he was fine.
 C is really coming along with his potty training.  Maybe a little too much... he tries to poop every time he gets on the potty.  Therefore, he pooped 6 times in the potty today.  I tried to explain that he doesn't have to poop every time!
Big Boy Undies!

Settling In

We have officially been in the new house for over two weeks now.  We have unpacked most everything but we have a ton of stuff to buy.  We gave my sister 1/2 of our furniture so the house is looking pretty sparse.  Hopefully we'll find the right pieces to make it a home soon!

Christian is adjusting well.  He still calls it "New House" everyday when I pick him up from school.  He's in a big boy bed now and doing pretty well.  5 nights out of 7 it's a struggle to get him to sleep.  It's my fault because I was a little too lenient with him the first week we were here.  I would let him go back and forth between his bed and "sissy's bed" until he started going back and forth to stall bedtime.  So now he cries most nights asking to go "night, night sissy's bed."

The past two weeks he has been doing very well with the potty.  He poops in the potty almost every day at school.  He doesn't do as well at home.  I don't think we're too far away from trying big boy undies with a plastic cover. Yay!

He says some of the cutest things now.  Every night at bed he says "Dinosaur get you." I say, "No.  There are no dinosaurs in the new house. Mommy won't let any dinosaurs get you."  He'll say, "Daddy won't let dinosaur get you either."  He's also very polite with his please and thank you's.  He fell down the stairs the other morning (he was ok) but he did cry for a while.  I was holding him and asked if he wanted some milk.  He sobbed, "No tank you."  Even in his distress he remembered his manners.

Tristan hit her first grand slam last week!  So exciting!  John takes C to some of her games now and he loves it.  He is always talking about sissy hitting the softball.

I'll try to have some pictures next time :)  I'm struggling these days!

New House

Sorry for the lack of posts! We have been busy, busy, busy.  This is my busy time at work so I don't know why I thought it would be a good idea to move!  We closed last Thursday and started moving in on Friday.  A big Thank You to my parents for helping us!  We couldn't have done it without you!

Also, C has been sick with an ear infection that wouldn't go away.  Poor bud.  One of his tubes is blocked so he has been in a lot of pain.  He holds his ear down to his shoulder and was pretty pitiful.  I think he is better now.  We are still putting drops of vinegar in the ear that has the blocked tube hoping that it will unblock.  We don't want to remove it and put another one in!
