With the start of cooler weather came warmer clothes, yummy smells, and the flu. On Monday morning I went and had 3 inches cut off my hair. Why I did that, I do not know?! I always regret it every time, this time being no different. After my hair cut we drove down to Windsor to spend the Labor Day Holiday with Paul/Marlene. It was a nice afternoon, with good food! On the way home we stopped by Aunt Judy's so she could meet Tate! Of course she said, "What a beautiful angel baby!" and she gave all the kids gummy worms for the drive home.
With the kids in school I started to transition Ainsley to her "big girl bed" during nap time. Aubrey followed directions 4 times this week, excitedly did her homework, and filled up her "gum ball" reading chart 2 times! Caleb got in trouble at school for kissing and was kindly asked to keep his mouth to himself. Mrs. Susan took me aside one day after class and said how kind and compassionate Caleb was to a friend who got hurt and a friend who lost her shoe. Now, if we could find a middle ground to the kissing/compassion life would be great!!
As for my Tate...he weighs 11.5 pounds and I am unable to snap up his 0-3 month onesies so he has officially graduated to 3-6 month clothes. What a chunk! I got out Caleb's 3-6 month clothes (only one outfit and no onesies survived Caleb's babiehood). This is the outfit that I had Caleb's valentines day pictures take in. VALENTINES DAY!!! Meaning Caleb was almost 7 months old when he wore it. CRAZY!!
And NO Sydney...we are not going to dress Caleb up as a Tater Tot for Halloween. Rude! He is holding his head up a little better this week and he is sleeping better but loudly. He is a very very loud breather.
On Friday morning Ainsley's crankiness escalated to "code red" (which means driving me crazy and picking on poor Tate). I didn't know what to do and ignoring her was only causing poor Tate pain so as I went to go and take her to her room she threw up....and threw up...and threw up. I put her in the shower and she threw up....threw up....threw up. I finally got her to lay down in time for Caleb to go to school (Andy had to take him because I didn't want Ainsley to throw up in the car). I had just fed Tate and was laying down when Andy walked through the door announcing school had been canceled because the power was out. So hyper Caleb = Ainsley waking up. I have bad luck.
Since she had thrown up in her crib I figured it was the perfect opportunity to put a FINAL end to crib life! She wasn't to happy about her lady bug bedding being replaced with jungle bedding but life is tough for an "almost" two year old.
