Now what?

Okay so now I'm going to talk about a power steering rack. What the heck is that? I don't know.

Amelia is trying to help me type. She knows most of the letters now, so she to point out the letters and tell me about them. Things like "that's the A, thats in my name. My name is Amelia. A is in my Amelia name two times!" (She just told me that.) Silly kid. Definitely never boring around here.

sick again.

What is Progress lighting? I have no idea, but I'm writing about it anyway.

Today is Thursday. Everyone in my house is sick again(still) depending how you look at it. I've really had enough of all these illnesses we keep getting, but I'm not sure how to get rid of it. It's the summer I thought all these sicknesses were supposed to go around in the winter?

Time to move

I don't like California anymore. We just had a 5.8 earthquake centered about 10 miles from us. It started off with a big jolt then a swaying. Amelia was in the kitchen and Anthony was asleep. It woke him up and Amelia freaked out. Poor baby is still sitting in my lap. We called and talked to my mom (mostly to calm me down) and Amelia told her "Grandma, the house was shaking! But Mommy saved me." But now she's scared that the house will shake again.

We've felt one aftershock so far...

Amelia just cut her hair. She has always had a lot of hair and it grows quickly. We've cut it a bunch of times and it's almost to her waist. Well, it was until about 15 minutes ago. Now most of it is to her waist and one big chunk is above her shoulders. I guess we're getting her hair cut tomorrow....

Random stuff

Whoever thought having a microwave mounted over the stove was a good idea, obviously was never a short person trying to scrub the thing out. I practically had to climb on top of the stove to get to the back of the microwave.

Have I mentioned lately that I miss having cleaning people come to my house??? LOL I think this is the first time I've really had to scrub out the microwave myself since it was installed almost a year ago.

Jeff and Amelia are at the beach. Anthony is napping. I am cleaning. It's so nice to clean without little people helping me. Maybe next week, all three of them will go do something fun! :-) Oh wait never mind, next weekend, I get to go to L.A. WITH NO CHILDREN and have a nanny night out. The fact that I am no longer a nanny is irrelevant. Half the nannies in the group are retired.
It's Sunday morning. Jeff's still sleeping. Amelia is playing with a roll of aluminum foil (don't ask) and Anthony is pulling himself up on one of his toys. He's going to be cruising and then walking before long.

Jeff and one of his buddies went to watch a fight last night, so I got to have an evening to myself. It was nice. I forget sometimes how much I need that quiet alone time. Okay so I only got an hour between when the kids went to bed and Jeff got home, but it was still nice. I think we're going to HB today to play at the beach, although right now it's pretty cloudy. Maybe we'll go this afternoon.

Amelia is so funny. She has unrolled almost a whole roll of foil, and laid it out across the living room floor. Now she is being a train and following the tracks. Anthony is fascinated with watching his big sister.

I'm back

So I've decided I'm back to blogging. I'm going to try and keep this updated a little more often. I am going to start putting up more pictures of my kids again. I also need to start posting more about what's going on with them, I love going back to read about things Amelia did as a baby. I started this blog when I was pregnant with her. I'm glad I've kept it up since I haven't been so good at keeping up the baby books.

It's 10:48 PM and Amelia is still awake. She has had no sugar or caffeine. No big naps or anything today. We did the normal bedtime stuff and nothing is working. I think I'm going to fall asleep before she does, which if you know Amelia and how much trouble she can get into, you know that's bad. Must. Not. Fall. Asleep. Before. Amelia.

Anyone else noticed I'm talking about sleep a lot lately?? I need to get a life and find something better to blog about.

It's oh so quiet

I love how peaceful my house is when everyone is asleep. Amelia had a bad dream and is curled up in my lap sleeping. Anthony is in his crib asleep. I can hear Jeff in the other room sleeping too. I really should go to bed, but sometimes it's nice to have some quiet alone time.

Now if I could just get some quiet time that's not in the middle of the night, it would be all good!

I should probably go put Amelia back in her bed now...

My kids are out to get me...

Amelia didn't go to bed until 11 PM tonight. 10 minutes after she was in bed, Anthony woke up. He's still awake, sitting in my lap while I type. Jeff's been a little irritated with me not sleeping well lately, so he's gonna complain in the morning when I want to sleep in... Maybe I should let him do night duty with Amelia. I have to get these kids on the same schedule. Amelia has turned into a night owl being ready for bed around 9,then Anthony is up at 5 or so most mornings. Today Amelia took a nap so that's why she wouldn't go to sleep. Poor kid was so tired, but was totally fighting it. She finally passed out in my lap with her pillow and blankie. Now if I could just convince the baby in my lap that he's tired. OH well, at least he's cute when he's trying to chew on my nose...


"Mommy, can I have some ice cream?"




"Daddy says I can have ice cream."

"Then talk to Daddy, Mommy said no ice cream."

*runs to the other room where Daddy is*

"Daddy, Daddy! Can I have ice cream?"

"What did Mommy say?"

"Mommy said Yes!"

She's already playing us. I'm gonna be in so much trouble when she is a teenager...
