Deck the Halls with…

on December 3, 2010

LOTS OF STUFFFF…FA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LAAAA. Can you tell I’m knee deep in…Everything?!

Well lots of things have gone on since Thanksgiving. We pulled out all the decorations and lit up the house, watched lots of Christmas movies, have been eating loads of yummy warm foods, had my uncle Mark come by and install a kitchen radiator and pump to keep it warm, and the 2 older kids are taking gymnastics on Saturday mornings! We’ve…been….busy.

Kaelyn had a great report card this term. Mostly 3’s and 2’s but a few 4’s in reading and comprehension. Her teacher is also pushing her in class more to do harder level work. Sometimes she wants to do it and sometimes it’s too hard, or her excuse is that her hand hurts. She is still a bit tender at times, but will stick up for herself Β in school which has caused a few kids to be moved around. She loves lunch, and on Tuesday she ate her first school lunch! Corn dog nuggets, corn, fruit, and goldfish with chocolate milk. Mmm Mmm. Way better than that sandwich/fruit combo I’ve been sending her with.

Ian has been pretty stubborn the past few weeks. He is rocking the potty. No joke! Will go pee, but hates #2. Not sure when that will sink in but until then lets just say we will be knee deep in…you know what. We just moved the toddler bed over and he’s slept in it with no problems! What a big boy! He is really hoping for some Toy Story 1 sheets (Not TS2 or TS3 but ONE) and he loves watching the movies πŸ™‚ He is very interested in reading and we are starting repetition with him and he’s reading Oh My Oh My Oh Dinosaurs to us. Just as smart as sissy!

Gavin had his 18 month check up a few weeks ago. He is a wee one. 10-25% for height, 25% for weight, and no joke here…75-80% head circumference. He loves reading and will throw himself on top of you so it’s easier to read. What a sweetie. He is very smart and knows very well how to get what he wants, may it be screaming, pointing, nodding or words. He wants it. He gets it. Now if he wants a knife to play with or sweets before dinner, I put my foot down πŸ˜‰

All in all, things have been good. I’ve been stressed a bit with Ian’s potty training, I’ve basically stopped doing anything other than saying, “Ian, do you have to go potty?!” I know it will happen and I just have to keep with it and make him understand that it’s ok to poop in the potty. Oh the joys!

Gavin helping.

    Let the season begin! Love their matching pjs and Ian just cracks me up! Are the sheets really different for TS1 than TS2 and TS3? I can’t believe how big they are all getting and go Kaelyn for rocking the report card!
