Backyard Fun

So we have been only a little busy this weekend, in a good fun way, and not a crazy hectic way. I think this was Friday night that we were hanging out in the backyard. Grace loves being outside and if you look close you can see she actually has a muddy face. Showing me her stick.

I don't know if you can tell but this is Grace's throwing stance. (Kinda) She is so cute about throwing balls. She will put her little leg out as far as she can and then chuck the ball!

I took a video of her but for some reason our computer won't play the video with Windows Media, so we have to take another look and figure that out.

But about Aaron he has been doing so much better the last 3 days. He has been getting good naps and actually cooing and talking. Saturday he got 2 naps a morning nap that was about an hour and then another afternoon nap. I am not sure how long that one was because we weren't here! Grandma came up and watched the kids so we could take advantage of some free movie tickets we had and have a date night! Woo Hoo!

It was a lot of fun, first we went to Target and got the kids Easter baskets and I got a new pair of jeans and 2 cute tops that were on clearance. (Oh and I also found out that the pair of jeans that were getting too tight for me were actually a size smaller than I remembered! Ha! Go figure!) Then we had dinner and went to see the Lincoln Lawyer. It was really good.

Grandma had a great time and Aaron was so good for her. She was able to put Grace down for bed without Aaron fussing and then she put him down to bed really easily as well!

I was so happy to hear that. We stopped feeding him rice cereal a few days ago, and he is off the antibiotics for his ear infection. He still has his hands in his mouth all the time and slobbers up a storm, but generally seems to be happier. He still is on his reflux meds. But we have seen a lot less temper and overall unhappiness and better sleeping. In fact the last 3 days he would wake at 5/6am for a morning feeding and then not wake up until about 9am. And he would wake up happy and cooing and looking at his Mobile or cooing on his tummy.

We do think that Aaron is a light sleeper and we know he hates loud noises. Grandma said she was holding him and she sneezed and it startled him awake. Daddy was reading an article about how babies sort of protect their sleep and how many times a noise can happen before it wakes the baby up. Some babies more and some less. I think that he tosses and turns and can easily wake up and be uncomfortable and then get upset.

However my sweet Grace, I am going to try to get her into the pediatrician's office tomorrow morning. She told Grandma 3 times on Saturday that her ear hurt. The thing is she doesn't act like she is in pain at all (in fact she had a blast tonight jumping on our bed while I stuffed Aaron's diapers!). Although she is more whiny lately and who knows if that is it or her just being 2 and whiny a lot. And she has had a snotty nose as well. So I will let you all know tomorrow.

Well that's enough for tonight, I got some more pictures to upload for later this week but its getting late here.
