So today we gave Lydia a vanilla oreo and what she decided to do was eat the frosting on the inside and not the outer cookie. So she comes into the kitchen asking us for another cookie and we say to her you must eat the rest of your cookie before you can have another one. So she goes back in and gets the cookie and starts to eat and gets distracted by something else and woosh sadie sweeps in and takes the cookie off her hands, (we don't let sadie do that). So we hear Lydia COOKIE COOKIE in a very sad voice and Joel grabs the rest of the cookie that sadie didn't get and gives it to Lydia and I said she can have another cookie, so he gets her another cookie and she gives him the leftover half from the last cookie and says TRASH TRASH YEAH!!! While throwing her cookie into the trash!!!
So this past Friday we took Seth for his 1 month appointment. He was 9 pounds 3 ounces and 22 inches long!! MY MY what a big boy. I think about how ironic this is because Lydia barely gained a pound a her one month appointment. So I am thankful that he is eating well and gaining some good weight. The doctor said he looked amazing. Thank you Lord so much for for a strong, Healthy baby. Lydia also was at the doctor with Seth and the doctor loves to hang out with her because she isn't scared of him anymore she likes to talk to him even though he can't really understand what she is saying.
So Joel made it home and back with us and I am so thankful for him and his help. After flying a red eye home Thursday night he got home eat breakfast and took a shower and then headed of to the doctors with me for Seth's one month and my dentist appointment. He is a big trooper. I can't believe how quickly the time has flown bye with Seth. I hope to remember the little moments with him and Lydia!!
Lydia's new thing is that she loves to sing. She makes up her own little songs and I will often hear her in her room playing singing about the toy she is playing with. When we take our evening walk she sings about the flowers and the dogs and mommy and daddy. We love to hear her do this because here is for hoping she will have some musical ability, but if not we will help her discover her hobby one day.
Well starting this past Monday I have been by myself with the 2 little munchkins. I love them very much, but I must admit it has been a little harder than I expected. I have realized how much I take Joel for granted. I was thinking today when the kids napped of all the stuff he does. Here is a small list, taking out the trash, cleaning the toys up after Lydia goes to bed, cleans dinner up after we are done, goes outside with Lydia while I take a rest and fold and put away laundry, and this is a big one has conversation with me at night as to not make me bored while he works. So I am so thankful for him. He is in Oregon right now at a Conference and we can't wait for Friday when he comes back. I have been thankful for the people who have tried to make my time a little easier. So continue to pray for me as we make it through one more day and 2 nights waiting for Joel to come home.
