Toys In The Attic

The father has been saving toys from his childhood in the attic. He has started bringing some down for the kids to play with. It's fun to see the old stuff he saved. Weeble Wobbles, Tonka trucks and other items. They are still in good condition. It's like reliving a childhood again to see them.

We allow the kids to watch 30 minutes of television each day and that's usually the last half of Sesame Street. That's because Elmo is on during that part of the show. They love watching, especially Blondie. She squeals and giggles when he comes on the screen.

I Think I'll Walk Today

Little Man surprised us today. This morning, he stood and walked halfway across the living room. Much further than the few steps he had been taking. We now know he walks as fast as he crawls too.

Back to the Dentist

We took the kids back to the dentist for another checkup. This was their second visit. We've started taking them every 6 months. Yes, we know, they have started going earlier than most other children do.

They didn't do much. Just a quick check to look for any cavities and a check on progress. The girls have their first year molars. Little Man's haven't started coming in yet.


Everyone has started walking some. Actually they have been for almost a month or more. Squeaky takes about 9 steps in a row at the most. Blondie takes 1 or 2. Little Man seems less interested in walking. He moves faster by crawling. We'll occasionally catch him taking 2 or 3 steps, but that's about it from him.

Kitchen Helpers

Recently we decided to surrender one of the drawers in our kitchen to the kids. They love being in there while we're cooking. The drawer is filled with measuring cups, plastic cookie cutters and other plastic kitchen items. They love pulling everything out and playing with the items on the floor.

I've Never Heard Of That

Last week, Little Man was stricken was a case of Roseola. We had never heard of it before. I'm sure we'll run into more illnesses that are unfamiliar to us as the kids get sick at different times.

We Survived A Movie

Last night was Family Night at church. They were having pizza and showing a movie. We decided to take the kids and see how things would go. We were a bit surprised. Everyone was gathered in the gym area to eat and watch the movie. That made it easy for us to put the kids in booster seats on the floor and feed them. They seemed to enjoy watching the people. Little Man enjoyed it a bit too much. He wouldn't eat because of all the activity so we had to feed him on the way home.

Unexpected Hiatus

After an unexpected hiatus, we're back.
