Evan & Lydia

I'm always writing blogs in my head but then never get a chance to type them out and post them. I know I'm going to forget things as the days go by so I'm going to try to be better about posting little things about the kiddos. Read them if you'd like...but mostly I'm doing it for myself so I can go back and read it again someday!

And of course I'll start with a pooping story...

On Tuesday night we had friends over for dinner. Evan needed to poop. He was sitting on the potty when our friends' 17 month old little boy, Eric, came in to check out what was going on. Evan looked at him and said, "You're going to have to learn to do this someday."

Evan loves watching cooking shows on tv so last night we were watching 30 minute meals with Rachel Ray. Rachel said something like, "throw your pan on the stove..." and Evan looked really surprised and said, “She said throw your pan, that’s not very nice!”

As for Lydia...she's a sweetheart unless you make her take a nap. That girl loves her social time. As long as someone is talking to her and paying attention to her or she's at least in the bouncie seat amongst the craziness then she's fine. Her napping routine however is not great! I blame this on our long trip to IL and now I feel like I'm reading Babywise for the 7th million time trying to get her back to sleeping at night and napping during the day. Oh Lydia...please sleep.

Lydia loves to smile! Just look at her and she'll smile. She even smiled at the cat yesterday. She's also starting to eat her hands a lot and grab for toys on her playmat. I can't believe she's over 3 months old already!

These pictures were actually taken about a month ago...

Cute pics. Looks like Lydia is blonder than Evan was. Hope she works out her schedule soon. At least you know that she can be a good sleeper! And as usual, love the Evan anecdotes. I need to be better about righting Isaac's down.
