Funny Children

Sammie was hilarious yesterday.  She was running around the house yelling, “Emma, Emma, change my bum!”  Too bad she didn’t convince her.

Also last night, Sammie walked on Eric’s back for him and then watched him finish popping his back.  He twists his body in some weird way.  Sammie decided that when he was done that it was her turn.  Watching her try to twist her back too was funny!

Tonight at dinner, Eric was teasing Emma about something and she called him a lier.  Eric replied that he was standing.  She didn’t get it.  We started laughing.  She tried to call him a lier again while he was sitting, and he said, “No, I am a sitter.”  She didn’t get that either.  Next she asked what a sitter was.  It was hard to stop laughing.

Monday Mayhem

Here is what we did on Monday.

Monday morning we woke up to Samantha without a diaper on.  She had wet the bed as well.  This determined that I would be starting with the pastel laundry this morning since we only have one set of sheets for her bed.

I was down stairs switching out a load of laundry when I heard an enormous crash with some bangs associated.  I run up the stairs to Sam’s room and I can’t see her, but she is sure wailing.  There is a dresser on top of her.  I lift the dresser and pull drawers off her, pull her out and let the dresser fall to the ground again.  I call Eric in a panic and tell him to come take us to the emergency room.  He rushes home and picks us up.  I called Bill to pick up Emma from school, then call the school to let them know that Bill will be picking her up.

Here she is in her hospital gown.  The doctor examined her and thought that there was no worry for internal injuries or neurological problems but they wanted to observe her for a little while and see if she could keep food down.  So she got a popsicle.

After she proved that she could keep food down they let us go home.  When we got home I took a picture of the dresser.

This was after the fact.  It is standing up now, but needs to be repaired before we can use it again.

Bill brought Emma home shortly after we got home and got to work.  He put the bolts in the top bunk so it no longer had to be secured with rope.  Then he inspected the dresser to find out what was needed to fix it.  A few of the drawers broke when it fell, but they seem to fixable.  Next he built my shelves in the den closet.

Eric and Emma unloaded the boxes of games onto them and look , there is still room for more underneath, 3 boxes to 3 shelves.

Catch up time again

We have been very busy around here.  I have definitely reached the nesting point of my pregnancy.

Sam and Emma have been moved into the same room.  Sam has not had the binkie for one week and has been coping fairly well.

A brand new Bed

Last night we finished up Rachelle’s room.

The bassinet is set up too.

I plan on repainting the girls wall pink and we have some princess and fairy vinyl stickers to put up too.  That might wait until I am on maternity leave.  I don’t think I have that much energy right now.

All of the bed rooms are cleaned and organized and are actually staying that way.

My C-section is scheduled for June 3 and it can’t come soon enough.

Look what Sammie let me do!

Fun in the Snow

Sorry for the lack of posting, my computer is at the shop getting fixed before the warranty runs out.  Eric’s Laptop has Vista and you can only upload one photo at a time.  It takes hours to post anything!

Sam wasn’t sure what to think of the snow.  She just wandered around helpless, and fell alot.

Tooth #3 and soon to appear tooth #4.  My guess is that it will pop through tomorrow.
