Middle of the night murmurings

leave a comment »

Cute things Kai will ask, sometimes, when she wakes in the middle of the night:
• mommy? I love you
• don’t you want to come closer to me?

She sleeps with Mrs Bean these days – I’ll spare you the not-so-cure that get said…

Our little dude

with 2 comments

Avi is almost 10 months old!  It’s crazy! He can stand up by himself now without holding onto anything and can hang out in standing position for 10+ seconds.  I suppose he’ll be walking soon.  He’s a Menace…we are so in for it.

It’s amazing how much he looks like Kai while at the same time he’s so different from her at the same age:

  • he’s large for his age – he passed 20 lbs a few weeks back and is wearing 18mo-sized clothing.  Kai can still wear her 18mo-sized pants, as shorts.
  • he loves to play with objects – attachment objects this week have included an empty moisturizer pump dispenser, an Atlanta Brave tomahawk, a point and shoot camera
  • he is super squirmy and doesn’t like to sit in laps.  Apparently he has better things to do, like eat shoes.  He LOVES shoes.
  • his first “word” sounds like “yeah!” while Kai’s was “No”

He still only has 2 bottom teeth but there are 4 working their way through his gums up top.  Poor kid…getting 4 teeth at once.

The butter battle of May 6, 2013

leave a comment »

Yesterday Kai wanted to have butter for breakfast. She was very adamant about it. Mrs Bean wanted her to have almond butter or cream cheese on bread first, Kai had eaten too much butter already.  Back and forth, there was yelling and there was crying.  While that was happening, Avi kept me company while I packed a snack for myself.  Finally, Kai and I left for school – she hadn’t eaten breakfast.

While strapping her into her carseat, Kai looks up at me and asks “Did you pack a snack box for just in case? What’s in it? Can I have it?”

…and there went my snack

We parked at school and listened to music while she ate all the crackers in my snack box.
