Busy Sunday

Teether toys

Cloudy has his first tooth coming in and chewing on everything in reach.

Today I kept telling the boy "don't chew on the dog."

In other news - Ben had his stitches removed yesterday. His busted
skull seems to be healing nicely.

like nothing ever happened

with Ben's beautiful hair you cant see the bandage... and the way he is running 90mph everywhere, you cant tell he did any damage.
The boys were both in a good mood this afternoon so i ripped out the camera for a few shots.

This morning Cloudy was playing in his safe zone (play yard) and Ben
chunked a matchbox car at him and knocked him in the forehead. No
real damage just a screaming kid with a small bump.

This afternoon we went to the mall and Ben slipped in the foyer of a
store and knocked his head against a corner piece of metal.
3 stitches
Ice cream
- all better

At the hospital Ben said he was in "4" pain. But would be a "0" after
ice cream.

He was one tough kid! He was upset there was blood on his jacket in
the ambulance. And he was concerned about the blood on his shoes while
getting his stitches.


Ben completed his first round of swim classes. He did great! And is
looking forward to next session.

Cloudy has a TOOTH coming in. I noticed it yesterday... He also is
being intoduced to foods. And he's definitely an eater.

Clouds had his first babysitter experience today. We left the boys
with miss zoé this morning so we could participate in the Trek up the
Tower (40 flights at the first national bank bldg in omaha).

Happy Fastnacht Day

For the past few days Ben has been hounding us to make Fastnachts!

So today we made Fastnachts...
Cloudy helped play with the bowl

Bailey helped by cleaning up anything that attempted to hit the floor

The finished product... they are SO Delicious (I think I'll be running 5mi every day to make up for the calorie intake today... and tomorrow)

Why did we wait so long...

Why did we wait so long to join the Y? It's so convenient.
Ben had his 2nd dose of swim today. He is becoming more willing to
dunk his head under. Ms Nikki, the instructor, said Ben was doing
great, and better yet that he told her it was "fun!".
As for cloudy- he is Rolling from his belly to back like a champ.
He's close to rolling from back to belly. The best thing I've seen him
do though is crawl BACKWARDS. He's really just scooting but it's
super cute. I must break out the video camera.
Now we're just waiting for the newest Carter to make an Appearance. I
have $ on the 14th.

Swim lessons

Ben had his first swim class at the YMCA today. We signed him up a
week late but it's a beginner class and he's probably more advanced
than 1/2 the class. Not like the kid has never been in water.
Right!? So I don't know who is more excited: Ben - bc he was
"swimming", or me bc he was excited (and dunking his head under).

I had to laugh when class was over all the kids jumped out of the pool
except Ben. He went to the shallow end and jumped back in! Started
trying to swim solo.

sunday snow

A few more inches of snow this weekend.... this time it was a nice wet snow - so we made a snowman and used the snowball maker and snow brick form (to fix the 'fort') .. after playing in the snow this morning we went to the pool @ the Y.
Sitting here after THE superbowl game, I'm thinking how bad it is going to hurt at the Y tomorrow when I go back to run.

Sassy boy

Today Ben chunked a toy at Cloudy and was caught. I sat his butt in
the corner and when I was telling him - it's not nice to throw things
at others, do you like things thrown at you?
His reply: when I'm playing ball.

Going to have to really watch this one!
