Found it!

I had a very productive morning and I found a brush for Lily and my camera. I'm on a roll! I'm also really relaly really tired. And my keyboard is weird. LIly was in here. Do I really want to know what happened? No. I do want a new keyboard though. THere are the thin ones that you can roll up. There's no grooves for food to get caught in and they seem easy to clean. Here's what I'm talking about.

Wow there are a lot of shingles being loaded on the roof and the whole house shakes every time a package is dropped. ACK Our house was not built to the most exacting standards. I told Pedro this morning that I'm about to go and live in the garage because it seems to be built better! It's not done yet, but it looks good.

Anyway, how did it get to be the 23rd already? I guess we'll have to get serious about getting the girls picture taken with Santa. gah Anyhoo, think happy thoughts for me that the roof stays up. And this is Lily's idea of cold weather clothes. At least you can see some of our new wall color in the living room.

I'm going through this thing right now where it seems like I can't find anything. And things that I have found keep on disappearing. It's very weird. Lily blames two girl ghosts. She blames them for everything but especially her room being messy.

Anyway, I only mention that because I'm wondering where the cable is for the camera so I can download some pictures. Sigh.

Okay, I found that. Now where's the camera? Jeesh

It's a nice quiet Vancouver morning - foggy and quiet. :) Both girls are still asleep. Madi is still waking me up at night. Sigh. She kept Pedro up for 3 hours Friday night so.... She was sick and we know that she's teething... She slept better last night, I thought. She's waking up, sitting up and looking around, BUT she's going right back to sleep. That makes a difference, instead of having to spend 15 or more minutes trying to get her back to sleep.

What is it they say? Everyone wakes up at night? But most of us just roll over and keep on sleeping. So I have to figure out how to teach her that.

I'm just happy that I got her to stop slamming on the bed. Baby steps, right?

Well, I had a good look around but I couldn't find my camera. I have some cute pics of Madi after she was eating bath bubbles.

You've got a ....

So we all went to gymnastics class this morning. Lily kept on going and sitting on the bleachers. I asked her what was wrong and she told me that she didn't have a friend to play with. This other little girl had just sat down so Lily went and tickled her. That was it - off they went to play. The little girl's name is Emma and she just turned 3. A lot of the kids there are younger and smaller than Lily. I'm not going to put her in gym next year. She'll be starting pre-school and with the other playgroups we almost go to that should be enough.

Madi slept through the night. ??? She was sleeping with Pedro. I guess we know where she should sleep from on. :/ I mean, I'm glad but why can't she sleep through the night with me??? Maybe I toss and turn too much. ??

Anyway, the back deck is almost finished. It's supposed to rain tomorrow so the guys will be inside painting the living room. It will probably take all day. :P The living room is where we all hang out. Oh, we'll be fine somewhere else but it will be a bit inconvenient. It will, however, look great once it's all done. :)

Oh and Madi's been cruising around her activity table. She also stands up, grabs my legs and bounces up and down screaming for me to pick her up. At least it's getting closer to her walking, right??? I spend most of gym class making Madilyn sit with her legs in front of her. I hope it's paying off. I'm so glad that there's only possibly four classes left. I might put Madi in the class next fall, once she can run and jump with abandon. If she wants to. :)

Happy Lily

She is almost always happy. Unless I'm not letting her run around outside naked. Or telling her to clean her room. Or not letting her eat a yogurt before dinner.


Maybe she is grumpy some of the time.


Madi did NOT sleep well last night which means that I did not sleep well last night. I got a pretty good night's sleep on Tuesday night and Wednesday, I was baking, cooking, cleaning. It makes such a difference to get a good rest. SIGH


Okay so Pedro's going postal over the sparse blog updates. If he'd only join Facebook... No, then he'd know all the bad things I say about him. :P

I did have other pictures from the trip to Canada but none of them were coming off of the camera - some error issue. They finally downloaded this morning. phew

I'm too tired to think straight - Madi kept me up a lot last night. Poor thing. So here are some pictures, y'all are smart and you'll figure them out.

Okay, okay. I've been busy. The short story is that Madi's showing more initiative feeding herself and cruising. A little. She's been sleeping a little better but now I've been struck with insomnia. I wonder if I'm just used to waking up every couple of hours???
