After school today Lindsay played a little on her own while daddy tried to entertain Jordan.  After dinner and groceries and a quick bath Jordan was ready for bed.  Lindsay of course is never ready for bed.

Mommy's Bday

Happy Birthday to mommy!  Jordan slept the whole night although she did wake up at 6.  After school today Jordan was tired again.  She fell asleep on the way to take mommy out to dinner.  Lindsay was very squirmy during dinner and Jordan was a bit busy herself after she woke up.  Once we got home we read a few stories and then it was bedtime.

Big School

Lindsay started at the big school today.  She did good.  They have show and tell every Friday, dance or karate lessons, spanish lessons, science lessons and lots of other activities.  They also get to play on the big playground.  Lindsay got her first homework today.  She had to cut along the lines marked on a piece of paper.  Jordan was exhausted after school and actually fell asleep for the first part of our skype session with grandma, grandpa, Aunt Becca, Uncle Gary, and great grandma. Lindsay unfortunately would not talk for it.

Home again, Home again

Today we mainly hung around grandma and grandpa's house.  Lindsay still is not eating too well so we think her belly might not be totally back to normal.  Both girls slept the whole way home and Jordan was pretty exhausted even after that.

Grandma and Grandpa's

Lindsay is feeling better today.  After school we are visiting grandma and grandpa.  Jordan took a nap but was a little shy around grandma and grandpa.  Lindsay is loving all her different toys and grandma playing with her all over the house.

Sick Lindsay

Well, Lindsay is still sick today.  She threw up once this morning and then again this afternoon.  She also spent a lot of time on the couch watching movies with mommy and Jordan.  She did not eat a whole lot either.  This evening she seemed to be feeling better and ate a decent dinner.  She was even asking to go to Five Guys.  After bath and a couple of books she said she did not want to read any more and was ready for bed.  Jordan went to bed right afterward.

Grin and blue mouth

After school we played outside for awhile today.  Lindsay had a blue lollipop as you can see.  At dinner Lindsay did not eat anything and not too long after Lindsay threw up.  She seemed to be feeling better after that.  Jordan was exhausted again and was asleep before we got Lindsay asleep.

Sleepy Jordan

This afternoon Jordan was exhausted again.  Lindsay was good today and made a giant poop on the potty (mostly).  Lindsay is very excited about seeing grandma and grandpa this weekend.

Hood and thumbsucker

Jordan was sleeping when Lindsay and I picked her up today and was very tired this evening.  Lindsay had a couple of fits but no accidents.  Next week she starts at the big school.

Dancing and standing

Jordan slept badly last night and everyone was up around 7.  Today the girls mostly hung around the house.  Jordan took a 3 hour nap and a 1 hour nap today.  Lindsay watched a movie and read some books.  Lindsay had no accidents today.  Lindsay did have a lot of big fits this afternoon/evening.  In the tub Jordan pulled herself up to standing which is of course trouble.

The girls woke up pretty early today.  however they weer pretty good for mommy today.  Jordan took 2 two hour naps and Lindsay and mommy did some crafts.  They also went to the library.  Lindsay had a couple of fits this afternoon.

Lindsay woke up very grumpy again this morning.  Daddy picked both girls up a little early today.  Jordan did not take a good nap at school today and was a bit exhausted when we got home.  She was way grumpy.  Lindsay was good and mostly entertained herself.  Lindsay continues to have accidents with stinkys.  We went to Ballast Point tonight and Lindsay and mommy played while daddy and Jordan jogged.  Lindsay threw a huge fit again when it was time to leave.

Daddy, Lindsay, and Jordan

Mommy and Jordan hung out today and ran some errands.  Jordan also had her 6 month (She is 6 months old today) doctors appointment.  She is in the 79th percentile for height and 28th percentile for weight.  She also had to get a couple shots.  Lindsay had school today and played with mommy and Jordan this afternoon.  The girls were both pretty good tonight for daddy although Jordan was a bit exhausted.  Jordan was especially good at Five Guys tonight which daddy was not expecting her to be.  They had fun playing in the bath together and Jordan was asleep in daddy's arms not too much long after.

Prunes and Ice cream

Lindsay threw a huge fit before getting out of bed this morning and then one at school.  I picked up Jordan at lunch time and met mommy.  Jordan took a little over an hour nap this afternoon.  Lindsay had one accident today at school but none at home.  Tonight Jordan had prunes for dinner and Lindsay got an ice cream bar since she cleaned her plate.

Lindsay had no accidents at school at all today.  She did have one tonight right before bath while standing right next to the potty.  Jordan is sort of crawling now.  She doesn't go far but she gets one or two scoots in and then goes to sitting.  She can go after toys now when she wants to.  Lindsay had been throwing a bunch of little fits recently about not much.  But she also tells mommy and daddy she loves them a lot so that kind of makes up for it.

Story Time

Lindsay continues to be accident free except for nap time.  Jordan woke up around midnight and then around 6 this morning.  Jordan is a very noisy eater.  She makes a lot of noise if you do not feed her fast enough although it is hard because she often sticks her thumb in her mouth at the same time.

Another day

About the same today.  Lindsay had no pee accidents but had 2 poopy accidents.  Jordan was a bit hard to keep happy.  Lindsay threw several big fits but was also very sweet with Jordan.

Whiny Saturday

The girls, especially Lindsay were a handful today.  Nobody slept in much.  This morning we took the girls to a park and all Lindsay did the whole time was whine.  Jordan enjoyed playing in the fountains.  At lunch, more whining and Lindsay did not eat any of her food.  She was a little better this afternoon, but not much.  The highlight is that Lindsay did not have one accident all day and even made several trips to the potty on her own.

Jordan's room

Jordan stayed home with mommy today.  She was a bit on the needy side but mommy enjoyed having some Jordan time.  Lindsay only had 1 accident today and that was during nap time so that is very good.  Daddy had the girls tonight and they were good.  We went out for Five Guys of course.  Jordan ate a whole thing of peaches and most of 2 cookies.  Lindsay ate her whole burger and some fries.  We went for a walk and then played in Jordan's room until Jordan was ready for bed.  After she was down Lindsay and daddy read some books on the couch and then Lindsay went to bed.

Tantrum town

The good news is Lindsay is doing much better on the potty.  At school today her only accident was at nap time.  After school we had a huge fit that started at Jordan's school and lasted until well after we got home.  Of course during the fit she would not get on the potty and peed before daddy could put Jordan down and pick her up and put her on the potty.  Jordan is still sleepy a lot when she comes home from daycare. I think she spends a lot of time playing on the floor which is good for her.

Potty time

Well, today Lindsay went to school in underwear.  She did pretty well.  She did not have any pee accidents.  She did have one poopy accidents and one where she told her teacher and went mostly on the potty.  Hopefully these last 2 days are a breakthrough.  Jordan had a poopy accident on her outfit today also, but what do you expect of an almost 6 month old.

Same Old Stuff

Today we talked to Lindsay's teachers about the potty training and they want us to start sending her to school in underwear as she is supposed to move up to the big school in 2 weeks.  Jordan was mad when I picked her up because she hadn't had her third bottle yet so I fed her when we got home.  Jordan ate a whole container of apples and about half of sweet potatoes plus a couple of teether cookies for dinner.  Lindsay did a good job of trying to use the potty tonight.  She did however throw her normal bedtime fit.
