Aurora update

I haven't posted here in a while (*oops!*), so here is a long-overdue Aurora update.
  • She still loves being worn, I am so thankful! The only problem is that my mei tai stash is going unused because she is up/down/up/down. So I sold a bunch and invested in buckle carriers. I seriously have a problem.
  • Unlike Logan, she is a "I do it" kid. Logan was so happy to have us do anything for him, and Aurora gets pissed off.
  • She loves sunscreen. She desperately wants to have some if anyone is putting it on. Weird, I hate the stuff.
  • She is still obsessed with shoes, although will tolerate others not wearing any now. She used to insist everyone had shoes on. She throws stuff all the time out of frustration. This kid has a temper! It stinks because her consequences are different than Logan's and he doesn't like that so much.
  • She is talking in sentences. It is unreal--Logan barely said anything intelligible before 2. It is so strange to have a verbal kid.
Amazing how different they are.
Today we are off to a bug festival at a botanical garden up in Encinitas. Our bug-obsessed boy is very excited!

Another overheard

Upon learning that Logan, Aurora, and I needed to go back into the restaurant we had just left to get our house keys, Logan exclaimed:

Oh shucking whistles!

Logan is playing nicely by himself with "robot" he built out of legos. I heard him say...

"Here is the peacemaker, here is the peacemaker!"

" What is the peacemaker?"

"The peace maker makes pieces and gives pieces to the other robots! Patoo patoo!"

For a moment there I thought he actually had a nice, non-violent robot in his army...

Merry merry!

Last night Don and I spent the evening wrapping and watching the new Star Trek movie. It was so good! A great Christmas eve. Today we had to wake Logan up at 7:45. This after him being totally out of control yesterday. I am happy we got to sleep in though.

After opening we ate pancakes and headed over to Coronado. It is a beautiful day and we totally could have worn t-shirts. Christmas always seems to be beautiful in San Diego!

double love

Hope your day is a happy one!

One. Hoo boy!

The girl is one. One! Her birthday was low-key and lots of fun. She liked all her presents and especially the boxes/wrapping they came in. Logan was only marginally ill-behaved. He really likes to mash her head into the carpet, which obviously we don't condone.

Here she is the last day of under a year old...


And the big day...





And now the baby days of 2+2=Done are over. *sigh*

Steps and H1N1 vaxes

Aurora took steps! Last weekend she took her first three uassisted steps at our friend's house. Whoa! At 10 mths, 3 months earlier than Logan. We are so unprepared for a wobbly walker. Yay! and *sigh* I would like her to stay a baby a little bit longer. She clearly has other ideas.

Today we were told of a local H1N1 vax clinic where there was no waiting. What? We totally high-tailed it over there and everyone got shot. Logan was BY FAR the most offended, he really hasn't gotten over it yet despite the fact that it doesn't even hurt anymore. Regardless he informed me that I should get off his bed at night-night because I :gave: him the shot and he didn't want it. Oh well. I guess today I am horrible. I am ok with that. :-)

On the way home from Ms T's yesterday Logan and I were discussing what days he and his buddy Ren are together at daycare. For the record, Logan and Ren go together on Tuesday and Thursday. Logan goes again on Friday and Aurora obviously goes all the days...

Me: So where do you go on Monday?
Logan: TeTe's?
Me: Let's try again.
L: School!
Me: That's right!
L: Daddy picks me up from school. I only like it when Daddy picks me up.
Me:Oh, you don't like it when I pick you up? Even from TeTe's?
L: No. I want Daddy to do it every day. Only Daddy!

Thanks kid. Can you tell he is going through a Daddy phase?
