We had our first night out since the little one was born! El Comodoro had a big fancy dinner thingy downtown and I got to tag along and watch him in action. My poor brain is mostly mush now from nursing and lack of sleep so unfortunately I couldn’t tell you what the presentations were about to save my life- but he sure did look nice! It was nice to be out for a little while, but I was happy to get back home. And I came home to the sweetest little girl waiting up for me- with a big smile on her face! So happy she did so well without me! Jack was sound asleep when I checked on him… so he decided to welcome us home sometime around 2:30am- oh but he’s sweet in the middle of the night… “Mommy, I want to sleep with you and daddy, in the middle of your bed”.
In other news, JACK CAN SWIM!!!! After about 4 lessons with Miss Casey, Jack is paddling around and even picking up beads on the floor of the shallow end! He moves so fast he looks like a little baby dolphin! Miss Casey was extremely impressed and said she wouldn’t normally even think about teaching the backstroke to a three year old- but Jack is ready! We are so pumped that he worked so hard and got it! I was watching him swim today and he is obsessed with going underwater. How he doesn’t choke I’ll never know. He goes under with a big smile and comes up with a big smile too. And, he has of course, figured out how to talk underwater.
Other random things I don’t want to forget:
Caroline moved into a size 3 diaper last week- she’s 3 months old!! I am not a big person - I don’t know how I have such giant babies. She also sat up in the Bumbo last week. I could have put her in it 2-3 weeks earlier but I hate that this time is going by so fast. It was killing me to see her sitting up in that seat like a big girl, and her just smiling away. Before I know it she’s going to be as big as Jack (don’t even get me started on him turning 4 this summer!)
Today was my birthday- it was one of my best ever. I got to sleep late, taken to lunch by my sweet hubby, Jack sang “Happy Birfday” to me all day long and Caroline smiled at me all day long, I got lots of birthday wishes, my mom did my laundry for me and we had pizza for supper… it was a good day!
