Mega diapers for mega wetters

Check out the double stuffed diaper on the bean! Tee hee! We’re not trying to make her look funny – she needs it! (it’s for nighttime, she doesn’t need this during the day)

There's no way I can fall over...

5″ of rain = harried mommies

with one comment

It’s just past 11pm and we’ve had 5.4″ of rain so far with more to come tomorrow.  This does not bode well for Mrs Bean, since she’ll be running around making sure Kai doesn’t get into anything she shouldn’t be getting into, doesn’t fall over or bang into a wall, etc. etc.

Kai has been changing and learning so much lately.  Let’s see…

  • BIG SMILES – when we ask her if she wants to have some water or food, and it’s exactly what she’d been trying to tell us, she’ll give us a huge huge smile and nod her head.  It’s so cute!  And incredibly hard to catch on camera
  • stairs – she’s started to figure out how to climb down a step.  She’s not so good at the second step and will often go back up the stairs if she can’t figure it out.
  • food food food – crackers, cinnamon roll (just a little bit), potato, carrot chips, fruit smoothies, tortillas…she will eat it all, although she loves carbs the most
  • da! ba! – she’ll attempt to repeat words after us, choosing to say da! or ba! whichever seems to be closest in her mind.  She will also point at things, grunt and then complain that you didn’t get her the right thing.  This gets old pretty fast…
  • turtle head – this is cute too – if you look at her and extend your head, sometimes she’ll smile at you and extend her head towards you.  At the kitchen table, this can go on and on…cute cute cute!

In the meanwhile, Mrs Bean is still eagerly awaiting the day the Kai can sleep for more than ~2 hours at a stretch…which is why being able to get Kai out during the day to playgroups or to hang out with friends is so important.  Kai has alot of energy to use up!
