Happy Halloween

Both girls got dressed up in their costumes for Halloween today.  Lindsay's school also had a bounce house today.  This evening we went trick or treating.  Lindsay was a little less shy this year.  Jordan mostly rode in the stroller and played with her banana.  Both girls got tires about halfway around the block.

Jordan was up at 5 and again by 7 today.  This morning Jordan went to daycare at the church but Lindsay stayed with mommy and grandma and grandpa.  The rest of the day was spent hanging around and playing at grandma and grandpa's house.  Tonight we carved our pumpkin.  We went with a Jordan Jack O Lantern this year with two top and two bottom teeth.

Pumpkin Patch and Monkey

This afternoon mommy, grandma and the girls went to a carnival at Jordan's school.  Lindsay played ring toss, got some cotton candy, got her face painted and got a tattoo.  Jordan ate a little of the cotton candy also.  This evening we went and got a pumpkin.  Lindsay walked up to almost every pumpkin and said that she liked that one.

Fall Festival

Today mommy and Lindsay went to her Fall Festival at Lindsay's school.  Mommy, dressed as Snow White was working at the pin the tail on the witch booth.  Lindsay had fun.  She got a tattoo and had a snowcone.  Jordan was upset about being dropped off but did fine after that and mommy picked her up early.

No pic day

Jordan woke up at 4 today.  She fell back asleep after eating and being put in the swing.  The girls had another fun day with grandma and grandpa.  Lindsay had her favorite breakfast of pancakes and sausage and her favorite lunch of a grilled cheese sandwich.  They went swimming again this morning.  They took the dogs for a walk.  Lindsay did a lot of puzzles today also.  This evening we went out to dinner and the girls were a bit tired and not happy about having to wait for the food.  Tomorrow the girls are going back to school.  Sorry no pics today.

Jordan woke up at 5:15 today.  She eventually fell back asleep after Chrissy fed her.  Today the girls went to the library with grandma.  Lindsay got a new outfit which you can see in the picture and they got some new books since her and grandma have been reading a lot.  This afternoon grandpa watched the girls for a couple of hours and they behaved well for him.  This evening Lindsay walked all the way around the block again and fed the ducks.

Jordan slept in until 7:15 today.  This morning we went to church.  Both girls did pretty good in the daycare.  Jordan was constantly wanting food all day today.  This afternoon we went in the hot tub again.  Lindsay walked all the way around the block tonight.  Jordan has also been climbing up the stairs.

Jordan of course woke up at 6:40 today as always.  Lindsay slept in until close to 8:45.  This morning Lindsay "read" a nursery rhyme book to us.  It was really cute to hear her do almost all of them by herself.  Lindsay ate a big breakfast and we played around the house this morning.  Jordan took a nice long 2 hour nap today which was much needed.  This afternoon we all went in the hot tub for a little while.  Jordan ate really good at dinner time.  Jordan's top two teeth are popping out pretty good now and it looks really funny when she smiles.

Grandma and the girls went to the park again today for awhile.  At home Lindsay did a lot of puzzles with grandma including a couple of new ones grandma bought today.  Lindsay can do them pretty good if you just give her a few pieces at a time.  Jordan took a nap this afternoon while grandpa was rocking her.  This evening Jordan was a bit worn out.

Grandpa's girls

Jordan woke up at 2 last night and did not go back to sleep until 3:15.  Today Lindsay had some pancakes for breakfast.  The neighbor girl came over and played with Lindsay for awhile this morning.  This afternoon we played around the house.  This evening we all went in the pool for awhile and Jordan especially had a lot of fun.

Monday, October 17, 2011

Jordan slept in until around 7 today and Lindsay until almost 9.  Today they did some swimming and playing dress up and reading books.  They also played outside for awhile and Jordan took a nice nap while grandpa was holding her.  Jordan was really wound up this evening and had lots of good smiles.  Her top two teeth are popping through pretty good now.  Tonight Lindsay played with one of the neighbor girls for about 45 minutes and they might get together again tomorrow.

To grandmother's house

Jordan woke up at 5 today but did go back to sleep with the swing.  Jordan was not real well behaved this morning.  Jordan went to daycare at church and Lindsay went with us and then to Godly Play.  She did well with it.  After lunch we headed to grandma and grandpa's house.  Lindsay did some swimming with grandma. Jordan gave lots of smiles and ate a really good dinner.  Hopefully she sleep well tonight.

Jordan woke up around 5:30.  She eventually went back to sleep after eating and being put in the swing.  Lindsay woke up around 8:30 and Jordan got up for the second time shortly after that.  This morning we went to the park for awhile.  Lindsay did not want to play in the playground very much but enjoyed sitting by the water.  Jordan of course just liked being out and moving.  We picked up lunch and met mommy at home and Jordan went down for nap time.  This afternoon we mostly played around the house and did our walk.  Lindsay is excited about getting to see grandma and grandpa tomorrow.

The girls were note very good today.  Mommy was home and Jordan was very clingy and mostly screamed if she was put down.  She did not take good naps or eat well.  Lindsay was much worse.  She continues to be very, very uncooperative at home.  She has multiple "accidents", does not listen to mommy and daddy, cries if nobody is reading to her constantly, and does not stop making noise.

Sorry, no pics today

Sorry for the lack of pics today.  Daddy did not get home with the girls until after 5:30.  After a potty break and walk we went to Five Guys.  This was the only time Lindsay was good for daddy all night.  Back at home we had more potty issues followed by a bath and a return to the potty.  After that it was one magazine for Lindsay and a bottle for Jordan and everyone went to bed.

Jordan troublemaker

The report from school today is that Jordan bit her teacher and also that she crawled over to her teacher and licked her face.  We have never seen Jordan lick anything so that is pretty funny.  Serenity does sometimes go lick Jordan's face so maybe she got it from her puppy.  Lindsay was back in a dress today of course.  They had a fire truck come to her school today.  Jordan is saying dada and mama some now although at dinner she looked straight at dad and said "mama" and then over to mom and said "dada".

Lindsay in shorts

Yes, Lindsay actually did ask to wear shorts and a shirt today.  She looks a bit different.  Jordan this morning was sitting in her high chair and babbling and hiccuping which was pretty cute.  After school we played outside a little and then did our walk.  Jordan ate some egg for dinner and really enjoyed a little bit of banana although she did make a bit of a mess with it.

Monday, October 10, 2011

This morning the girls were pretty good although Jordan did not want to be set down so Daddy and Lindsay could leave.  This afternoon Lindsay was doing science club when daddy got to school.  Mr Doug had brought in a baby alligator and was trying to get Lindsay to pet it but she was not interested.  At home Jordan was not as active as normal and was content as long as daddy was holding her.  Tonight she ate decent and even ate some scrambled eggs when she could actually get them into her mouth.  Lindsay continues to throw huge fits every single night when we leave the room.

Halloween Spoiler

Well of course there was no sleeping in today and we even tried to put Jordan back in the swing.  After breakfast we went to church.  Jordan went to the daycare and Lindsay came to big church and then left for "Godly Play".  She was pretty good about it and was entertained by mommy's iphone.  After church Jordan went down for nap number 1.  Lindsay and mommy went to get groceries and run by Michaels.  Jordan seems to have finally caught whatever the rest of us have so we will see how everything goes tomorrow.

This morning after breakfast we went to Picnic Island for awhile.  It was windy but felt great outside and the girls definitely enjoyed being outside.  Lindsay did a lot of swinging and Jordan went in teh baby swing for awhile and liked it.  Back at home Jordan took two fairly long naps interrupted mostly by Lindsay screaming when she got taken to her room for non stop whining.  This evening we went to Red Lobster for the All You Can Eat Shrimp.  Daddy enjoyed it as did Lindsay.  Lindsay cleaned her plate, tried some of daddy's shrimp and ate several of the grilled shrimp that came on mommy's salad.  Jordan was pretty good too and ate her whole thing of baby food.

Raggedy Ann Dress and Tattoo

This afternoon Lindsay was watching a movie at school when I got her and Jordan was riding in their buggy which she really likes.  After school we played around the house.  After dinner we went for our walk and then got the girls ready for bed.  Lindsay was a bit difficult tonight.  Jordan was pretty good as long as you feed her what she wants.
