I'm ready for the weekend...

Friday, June 18, 2010
It's been a long week for some reason - maybe b/c I'm so tired. We're working out twice a day and for some reason Aaron has decided to change his schedule so that he eats in the middle of the night again. *yawn* At least Emma isn't coming into our bed in the middle of the night still - though I think that was really just b/c of her ear ache that she had.

We have a few tentative plans for the weekend, but much of them really just depend on Michael - he and Carlton, our neighbor, are building fences - or rather moving fences - and they are just about finished. I know Michael is ready to get it done, so before we do anything else he wants to work on that. I hope they'll finish tonight or in the morning. *fingers crossed*

Kid news: Aaron is becoming mobile! Not to the point that I have to chase him around or anything, but he is turning around - the baby sitter said he turns over, but I haven't seen that yet, so until I see it, it's not going in the baby book!! I did put him on his activity mat yesterday and after a while he had turned around almost all the way - he stayed on his tummy the whole time, though. It won't be long and then Katie bar the door!! Emma started crawling at 6 months & walking at 10 months. I've always heard boys are slower at starting things than girls and I had really hoped that would be the case - I'm ready for him to be able to sit alone, but I don't mind if he takes his sweet time to start crawling or walking! Emma keeps me running enough on her own! He does sit well in his exersaucer now, though!

He is still sucking on those thumbs, though. Hopefully that won't last long - by the time Emma was about five months she was done with all pacifiers and sucking on her fingers. Aaron doesn't really take his pacifier at all anymore now, just goes straight for his thumb! 

Yesterday while he was on his activity mat I left the room and when I came back Emma was on the floor with him - actually she was holding him up over her while she lay on the floor playing with him - Lord she thinks she's grown!! She got a lecture about picking him up - said, "I'm not going to do that anymore..." - yeah right. We'll see, won't we?

 She only has a couple more months before she starts her preschool program! She is excited about "going to school", but I just pray it is an easy transition. It's going to be hard to leave Grammy's, but since Aaron will still be going there every day we'll get to see her often and since Carlton will be in Emma's class I think she'll be okay. It's going to be hard to leave Madeline, too - they are like a couple of sisters. They fight like sisters, too! :) I am sure she'll make may more great friends at her new school, too. It's just going by way too fast!
