Carden update


He is just a little obsessed with the first movie. And now that the second one is out and every store is filled with 40 isles of cars stuff, shopping with him is an absolute nightmare.

Carden is almost two now and I just can't believe it! Every day this kid surprises me with the things he can do! I refer to him as a constant wave of destruction and he really truly is. Our house is always torn apart and about 80% of it can be blamed on him. He definitely keeps me busy!

He loves to take things apart. Somehow he discovered that pens (like bic pens) have two parts to them, so now I am always grabbing a pen just to find that the ink has been removed from it. I have no idea how he discovered this or how he manages to take it out.

He loves to help mama fold laundry, meaning that I fold it and he grabs handfuls of it and runs it back to the dryer. I pretty much have to put away one item at a time, because once it is folded he makes a run for it to "help" me.

He has been able to remove the outlet plugs since he was about 16 months old. I can't even take these off! One day, he grabbed the vacuum, moved it to the living room, took out the outlet plug and plugged in the vacuum in and pretended he was cleaning. This was a couple months ago and I couldn't even get after him I was so surprised.

He loves pushing the kitchen chairs around the house to get whatever it is he wants. There will be times when all four chairs are in a different room in the house. He is now able to push a chair over to the front door and unlock it to make an escape. We have a chime whenever the door opens now, but it's definitly time to add another lock.

He LOVES his baby brother and always wants to know where he is. If David is crying, he tries to pick him up and he always asks to hold him. he loves to point out all of David's body parts and repeats them again and again. Eyes. Eyes. Eyes. He will say the same one over and over until you acknowledge that yes. David has eyes too.

such as big boy now!

David Update

Boy have I gotten behind on blogging! This David is becoming quite the little chunk at 11 lbs now! We took him to church for the first time last week and eveyone kept commenting on how tiny he his, but compared to two months ago he is huge! I guess I forget that he is still pretty small.

David has decided to get an early start in making life difficult for his mama. About a month ago, he was having problems with his pooping. In that he pooped WAAAAY too much. He was literally filling his diaper every thirty minutes and there was no way for me to keep up with it. One night after a feeding I changed his diaper 4 times before I finally just gave up and let him sleep in it. So after doing some research on the internets, I stopped eating all dairy and a little part of me died at that moment. It is so hard to know what to eat when you can't eat dairy. Especially since cereal is the MAIN food group in our house.

One day I actually started crying because I was so hungry and nothing sounded good except dairy. when David came early, one of my first thoughts was how unfair that I was missing out on two months of all you can eat ice cream every night. So as you can see, i'm a little upset about it.

But I'm getting used to it now. I like rice milk on my cereal and now that popsicle season is here it doesn't seem quite as bad. I've had some milk twice since I went off and both times David screamed in pain all day, so that also makes it totally worth it. little stinker.

There really aren't any David updates. He still can't do anything exciting, but he is definitely becoming more aware of us. Oh! and this is exciting! He finally grew into a sleep sack we have and since then he has been sleeping 6-7 hours straight at night. LOVE IT!
