Back to school for Lindsay.  Jordan was mostly good for grandma.  She enjoyed walking around the mall and fell asleep for a little while.  This afternoon daddy got Lindsay a little early.  She watched Snow White while daddy entertained Jordan.  She was pretty good overall but still has quite a few grumpy periods. Jordan fell asleep again on our walk but did not stay asleep too long after we got back home.  Hopefully she sleeps better tonight.

Another crazy day from Jordan.  She was not happy today and barely slept at all.  She was barely quiet all day and did some serious screaming.  Lindsay was good and watched a couple of movies today.  Lindsay did good at using the potty for pee but not for number 2.

Crazy Jordan

Jordan was definitely wound up today.  She was screaming at us quite a bit.  Luckily this afternoon she took a 2-3 hour nap.  Lindsay was good today.  We went to church and she likes going now.  This afternoon she watched Beauty and the Beast and then did a lot of drawing and some reading.

Nice Day

Jordan woke up around 6:30 today.  We spent most of the day over at Grandma and grandpa's house.  Everyone went swimming and enjoyed that.  Jordan went in a floatie in the pool and also went in the mildly warm tub (hot tub).  Lindsay ate really well.  Lindsay was worn out this afternoon and needed a late nap.  She was initially not very good about leaving grandma and grandpa's house but calmed down and started doing "this Little piggy".  She was good for us at home and went to bed well.

Good Girls (Yeah!!!)

Lindsay was cooperative this morning.  Jordan was pretty good for grandma.  Both girls were well behaved this evening.  Lindsay did a pretty good job using the potty.  This evening she read several stories to mommy and I and she can do parts of The Cat and the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham almost word for word.  Jordan was mostly awake this evening and has been chewing on her hand a lot.

Circus and trouble

Jordan had a screaming fit from 5-6 this morning.  Lindsay did not wake up so well again.  Today they did the circus at Lindsay's school.  Her class was dancing bears and she did good.  Mommy, grandma and grandpa all got to see it.  This afternoon Lindsay played with grandma while grandpa held and fed Jordan.  This evening Jordan was pretty good although she is sleeping a bit.  Lindsay however went potty twice in her underwear, the 2nd time also on the floor in her room.  She also threw 3 huge horrible screaming and kicking fits.  The girls have been rather rough on mommy and daddy this week.

Girl Trouble

Lindsay had to be dragged kicking and screaming out of bed this morning.  She threw the same fit getting into the car and out of the car at day care.  Jordan was pretty good for grandma.   This evening both girls were trouble.  Lindsay wet 2 pairs of underwear and was not cooperative with multiple things.  Jordan did a good share of screaming also, especially while we were trying to eat dinner. Sigh....

Back to our routine

Lindsay was a little hard to get up today but wore her flower girl shirt so that helped get her going.  Jordan was pretty good with grandma today and seemed to enjoy her bath.  This evening she was not so good for mommy or daddy.

Jordan the terror

Jordan woke us up before 7 and did not get any better behaved as the day went on.  She slept in the car back to Tampa but was screaming for most of the rest of the day.  Lindsay was good today but got pretty tired by the end of the day.  She played with grandma this morning.  Lindsay colored, played dress up and read this afternoon.

Back to Florida

The girls traveled real well again today.  Lindsay ran out of steam and took a nice long nap after lunch.  Jordan slept the whole drive and plane ride.  The other main news is Jordan is now rolling over from back to tummy (which is usually a 5 month skill).

Flower Girl

Lindsay had a great day.  This morning we went to a waterfall and tehn hung around the lodge.  Lindsay went and met Alice the pot bellied pig and liked her a littler better today.  She spent a lot of the morning reading books with the grandpas.  After lunch Becca did her hair and she got on her flower girl dress.  She got a lot of attention.  She did a great job and made sure those flower petals got dropped in good spots.  This evening  She danced a lot and enjoyed the photo booth are where there was some dress up stuff. 
Jordan was a bit fussy today and even during the wedding was not real well behaved.

Off to the wedding

Lindsay was really good and Jordan was mostly good with the traveling.  Lindsay did an awesome job practicing for her flower girl roll today.  Lindsay is having a blast.

Daddy Jordan Day

Today daddy spent his first full day home with Jordan while mommy was at work.  After dropping Lindsay off we went to Bayshore and did a little walk.  On the way home we stopped at Home depot which she slept through.  Jordan also was good while we stopped by Sam's Club.  We met mommy for lunch and mommy's office gave Jordan lots of attention.  This afternoon she mostly slept.  After we picked Lindsay up she played with us and held Jordan for a bit.  Lindsay ate a big dinner tonight.  After walk Lindsay threw a huge fit so she had to go to bed a little early tonight.

Jordan was a bit more cranky this morning and then slept a lot for grandma.  After picking Lindsay up they all went to the park again.  This evening we went out to dinner and Lindsay ate pretty well.

Timber and Cranky

Grandma watched Jordan again today.  Supposedly she is the "best behaved baby" she has ever watched.  They went to play class today and enjoyed it.  Grandma picked Lindsay up early and took them both to the park for a little bit.  After grandma left we played around the house until dinner time.  Lindsay ate real well.  I was trying to do a specific picture with Jordan but she was not cooperative and that is why all I got was a screaming picture.

Super Girls

This morning we went to church.  The girls were good.  The girls read and played dress up in Lindsay's room for awhile.  We played outside for a bit  Jordan took a decent nap this afternoon.  Lindsay fell down about 10 times today including three times in a 2 or 3 minute span right before dinner.  She threw one huge fit but otherwise was pretty good.

Lazy Day

We had to go wake Lindsay up at noon today.  We went out to lunch and then hung around the house.  Lindsay watched a Tinkerbell movie and of course we read a lot of books.  Jordan definitely craves attention whenever she is awake but she did take a nice 2-3 hour nap this afternoon also.

Friday, May 13, 2011


Well, mommy had to go back to work today.  Grandma came over to babysit Jordan.  She said that Jordan was good and even took about a two hour nap.  Grandma picked up Lindsay from school and played with her for a little bit this afternoon.  Lindsay helped grandma feed Jordan a bottle this afternoon also.  Lindsay ate a better dinner tonight because we keep telling her we aren't going to give her any more snacks when we get home from school if she doesn't eat her dinner well.

Pink Bikinis (from Thursday)

The dress and airplane

Jordan did not want to go to sleep last night.  She screamed from 10:30-11:30.  The nice thing is once she stopped screaming she actually slept all the way through until the morning.  Jordan was good for mommy today and let her run a lot of errands.  This afternoon Lindsay modeled her flower girl dress and practiced throwing her petals.  She dressed up in a princess dress for awhile and then we had her take it off for dinner and she ran around the house 3-4 times in her underwear.  She did not eat a whole lot of dinner.

Better Jordan, Lindsay trouble

     Jordan was a bit better behaved today.  She was real good at dinner and at the grocery store tonight.  For the picture Jordan actually held her sippy cup and even brought it up towards her mouth.
     Lindsay went to the doctor today.  She was good there.  She is 36 inches (33rd percentile for height) and 29 pounds (25th percentile for weight).  She however threw a fit about getting out of the car.  She was good at dinner.  In the grocery store she was not listening and kept lifting her dress up.  Then she threw a huge fit as we were checking out.  She did a good job of using the potty when we got home but threw a huge fit when daddy helped her into the tub.  She went to bed a bit early tonight.

We have a three year old

Happy Birthday to Lindsay!  After breakfast we went to the Children's museum.  She had a little trouble getting into it and was scared by some thunder sounds that were playing.  Eventually she settled down and found a few areas she liked.  Afterward we took her to Five Guys.  She ate most of a burger and that filled her up so she barely ate any fries.  This afternoon we played around the house.  Lindsay played outside for a bit in her pool and wit her new hose toy.  Overall I think she had a fun birthday weekend.
Jordan was a screamer today.  Not sure what her issue was but for awhile we had to just put her in her crib and leave her.  She is doing a little better this evening.
