Busy, Busy, Busy! Again!

We've had even more busy days. Sadie has been a brave little trooper. We had the dentist appointment yesterday (which revealed a flossing injury... I am apparently a wimp... who knew floss could hurt that much?) and an OB appointment today, which meant we spent a little over 6 hours in the car altogether. Sadie is going to enjoy some well earned play time tomorrow when she wakes up.

She did get to spend a couple of hours checking out the "Poo" exhibit at the museum and aquarium in town. We'd been their once before and Sadie loves to race around and press all the buttons. There's a scale she can stand on that tells her it would take 1.5 hours for an elephant to digest her weight in grass (Mommy took 7 hours and Daddy took 12.5 hours) and there was a rather graphic movie of a hippo pooing (the kids all seem to love that one! The grown ups on the other hand were all pretty grossed out).

Sadie's ability to devour huge amounts of milk continues to expand. She's up to four glasses a day and she actually goes to the refrigerator and begs for milk every few hours. She even almost completely emptied the large children's glass (it was about the size of an adult water glass at most places) at the restaurant in less than two minutes (she's learned to save a little so she can sit and try to blow bubbles in her cup with the straw).

Tomorrow we're going to set up her toddler bed. When she'll actually begin to sleep in it will be another question altogether. Hopefully it'll be before #2 arrives!

Oh and we get to do the sonogram somewhere between weeks 16-18. That's not too far away. I have to say that I was surprised today (at 13 weeks) when a sales lady asked me if we know yet if we're having a boy or a girl. Assuming someone still in the first trimester (if barely) is pregnant (and doesn't just have a bit of a belly... especially when they're lugging around a toddler) is a bit of a risk! I would have probably elbowed Paul if he'd asked someone that!

  1. Greetings & Good Morning! Snow, Wind & Cold here today. I know I won't go out to work, so I'm up at 4am trusting to snooze again later.

    Anyhow, for the amusement department... Imagine me reading this post... It starts out talking about the gross poo exhibit kids like so well. Go down another paragraph to Sadie's toddler bed. Imagine my surprise at the last sentence. :)

I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
