early saturday morning, i set out a bunch of toys in an arc around s. she's almost walking on her own, but hasn't started to crawl yet (other than scooting around using 1 hand sitting on her bottom), so i was trying to encourage her to get on all fours. she started rocking, but then started doing something else...
i said, "you can do it!"
she thinks, "i can poop???!"
i said, "are you pooping?"
she thinks, grunting, "yyyyeeesssss!"
we got a bit of a date saturday afternoon. grandma came over to baby sit while j & i went to review pictures from the family photo session a few weeks ago. there are some really good ones, and we look forward to finally decorating the house a little. j was gone to the east coast last week mon-thurs, and i survived. nobody actually got sick! it was amazing!
on sunday morning, we had some friends over for brunch, and then we spent the rest of the day relaxing. we went to the little park to play for awhile, and then got a pizza.
at some point in the weekend, z got a booboo on the side of his head, right near his eye. he was hiding from us in his closet, and somehow bumped into something (laundry basket???). he emerged crying, and we saw a bump immediately forming, with a blueish hue to it. it proceeded to turn different colors the next two days. even his teachers at school on monday noticed it changing colors, and asked what had happened! when our friends asked z what happened, z said, "you should see the other guy!" :)
that wasn't without a little coaching from daddy the day before.
sloane was scared of two noisy things yesterday... it's the first time i've noticed her being scared of anything. the first was the vacuum cleaner, and the second was a dog barking. z took a tumble off his yellow bike yesterday, but no blood. he made some cute comment about hoping his neighbor k wasn't too sad playing by herself (she hadn't even been home!), because we hadn't been able to go outside to play because i had to cook dinner. he comes up with these really cute things he says... his little mind is starting to think for itself, and it comes up with all kinds of things.
