It’s Been a Week

It’s been a week since my last blog post.  Thankfully, it’s also been a week since we went to the Children’s ER.  And it has been a really busy week at work.  I feel like I don’t have much to say other than those things, but then I also feel like there’s too much that I’ve missed blogging about.  I went well over a week without taking a single photo, and the lack of photos seems to directly affect my inspiration for blog posts. . . .

The one thing that I remember the most from the last week are the new things that the kids have been saying.  Every day they say so many funny things.  For instance, the kids will often tell me when something is funny.  If something they think is funny happens, they say, “It funny!”  Sometimes they think something is funny that is not funny (like when someone decides to spit out their milk).  Piper has now taken to saying, “Not funny!!” when something is not funny.  I very much appreciate that.  It’s quite helpful to have someone on my side. 

When I tell the kids to do something, if they don’t do it, I count to three.  Henry has started doing the same thing with his sisters when they don’t do what he wants.  I don’t think it’s been working for him yet.  His manners are improving though, because the other day he and Rosemary were fighting over something and he was yelling, “Please!  Please!”  Unfortunately that didn’t work for him either. 

One morning Rosemary told me that Penelope needed some panties.  After I explained that Penelope couldn’t wear panties until she was potty trained, Rosemary promised to potty train Penelope while I was at work (unfortunately, Rosemary was not successful). 

Penelope is also saying lots of things.  Just yesterday she developed two new words -- “Mama” (finally!) and “teeth” (after dinner when it was time to brush her teeth).  These words are added to her others:  "bye bye,” “dada,” “Dora,” “backpack” (Penelope shares her sisters and brother’s obsession with Dora the Explorer), and “high five.”  She’s also getting very close to saying, “Sally” for our Miss Sally.  I’m sure she’ll have that perfected in no time!

And I’m quite sure that I’ll remember about 20 cute things the kids have been saying that I could have blogged about once I publish this blog post. . . .  Isn’t that how it always works?

I hope you’ve all had a great week.  I finally broke my photography break and took some photos today, so hopefully my blog inspiration will return.
