Mommy Hears Some Counting

Despite needing to clean up the Easter mess which is still all over the house, I took Bobby (now seemingly healthy) to see Horton Hears a Who. I thought it was cute - I laughed out loud several times. But after sitting through Alvin and the Chipmunks (I swear I'm still recovering) I think my expectations have been lowered.

Charlie impressed me today. All winter, when I have changed Charlie's diaper I count the snaps as I resnap his pants. (In case you were wondering, toddler pants have eight snaps.) So I have basically counted to eight for almost all his diaper changes. This afternoon, I went to snap him back up and said, "One." And he said, "Two!" Wow! "What's next?" I asked. He got three, four and then said six instead of five. When I corrected him he got six, didn't say anything for seven but when I said "seven", he said eight! What a smartypants.

Happy Birthday!

Yesterday was Charlie's 2nd birthday! I can't believe he is two! We had a small family party when we were in St. Augustine last week, complete with Elmo cake. I meant to post this yesterday but with older brother throwing up every half hour, it just didn't happen.

Two years ago, yesterday:

Bobby (not sure about this baby!) and Charlie:

Now I'm 2!:


So I have been missing in action for a month. Here's the rundown. I got the stomach flu - the day before I was supposed to leave for my girls trip to Mexico. I had to postpone my trip a day because I couldn't even sit up, much less fly. Got there finally, had a GREAT time but you know how some medicine says "May cause sensitivity to sun". They ain't lying. I was in the sun a grand total of two hours and I burned in weird splotchy patches all over.

When I got home my skin started peeling off everywhere. Even places I wasn't burned! I can't even remember the last time I peeled. Or burned. Anyhoo, I was worn out after all the sickness, travel, etc. Then came Easter and spring break. My mom and step-dad have a house in St. Augustine so we went down there for a few days.

Today I was supposed to be out all day with a friend who was coming in from out of town but of course yesterday morning Bobby woke up with a high fever and then starting throwing up. So that was yesterday.

But I'm back.
