conversation with doug.

i'm at work, and it's kind of busy since it's the second day of fall and we are trying to rush and get all of our stuff working since i slacked off all summer, but i get a call from doug saying the kids are killing him.

davey is whining to get out of his high chair, tucker will not help clean up his room or listen, he is just sitting there playing with his cars. then he spills all the apple chips all over the carpet, davey is still whining, then he notices tucker has peed his undies and it's all over the floor and while he's cleaning that up and yelling at the kids, our neighbor who is kind of shy or something, it just takes her a long time to spit it out, comes over to see if we have her sons truck but she doesn't remember what color it is or much about it. ha! sounds like he is having a great day. and it's a million degrees in the house and everywhere. it is hard not to be irritated all the time. i love doug for staying home with the kids. he is really doing an excellent job and tucker just says, bye mom, when i leave and dayey prefers dad just as much as me, almost. i'm so glad that he is such a great dad and husband. i really love him and feel lucky. and i'm glad he has this chance to be home, that he knows the kids well, and their schedule, personalities and everything just as good as me. it's a nice little blessing right now.  

tuck had his first day of happy school today at megs and loved it. told me he had fun without me or dad there. ha! it's tosh, bowen and lola this year. they are really so cute. And the finger in the nose there. they made balloon animals for A.

Tucker has given up his nap. Maybe about a week ago. It was getting way to hard to get him to sleep and he was staying up way too late. He is transitioning pretty well I think. He woke up for a few nights there screaming a bit, and he still does, but he goes to sleep by 8 or earlier and is out in minutes which is amazing. we were wasting so much time laying in there with him trying to wait for him to fall asleep. He's not too cranky during the day, and as long as he starts sleeping all the way through the night, awesome! He also started wearing undies during the day now. He really hasn't had any accidents until today! (since i wrote this post there have been a few more accidents!!) But hopefully it will go pretty smoothly. I think the goal is to get this done before baby girl comes. 2 months and counting. sheesh. And the next big thing is to get Tuck to sleep in a big boy bed. We have it set up in his room but we need to get a rail and i think we'll start moving him over and making room for Davey in Tuckers crib.

I can't believe we are going to be a family of 5 soon. Craziness. But i'm kind of excited. Having 2 kids has really been fun I think. Even though Tucker cannot leave Davey alone, he is constantly knocking him over, checking him, pushing him down to blow farts on his tummy, just always pushing and touching and pulling hair!!! But davye is a pretty good sport about it and Tucker is really sweet to him. Gives him the cutest good night kisses that davey just loves. And Davey boy is moving to one nap. He really has the cutest, chubbiest cheeks ever and just has the cutest smile you want to eat up. so much more of a baby than tucker ever was. love them both!
