26 and still kickin'
Yesterday was my 26th birthday. Each year it feels more and more weird because I never feel older. However, this year, I do. I was watching Macy run and dance around like crazy today while I felt too exhausted to move and realized something that people don't tell you about pregnancy. While they are inside of you, they take your energy, but you don't get it back once they are born. The kids keep it and remain spaz's for years to come while the moms feel more and more tired.
Anyway, the kids have been pretty cute lately although Kylie has decided not to sleep at night anymore. Hopefully that will change once her ear infection is gone. Justin's week of 4:00 a.m. flights (be at work by 2:30) is finally over so we are all cheering about that and hopefully we can split the kids between us some and both get some rest.
Macy has been learning new words faster than I can count. today at costco she signed and said "apple" at the same time. I am going to copy my friend Amanda's idea and write down all of the words that she knows right now so I at least have it somewhere: Hot Dog, elbow (a new one last night. I didn't even know she knew what that was), please, daddy, mommy, Kylie, grandma, dog, moose, more, i don't know, there it is, milk, eye, nose, apple, no, uh-oh, bath, hi, hello, bye bye, night-night, baby, doll, ew! Gross!, wow, owie, boat, cracker and many things she will copy but doesn't really say on her own. I think there may be more but I can't remember them now. She has also been trying to sing "row, row, row your boat" the last few days and I think that that is pretty cute.
Macy also loves to play with the blue nose sucker even though I try to keep it out of her reach because it's gross. Here she is sucking out Elmo and her baby's nose.
Well, Kylie just woke up so I had better go get her. More next time.
