so i know i have some of the cutest kids in the entire world. i do know that and i am forever grateful.
but i have some questions:
1. when did brin grow up enough to not want her soothie anymore? (her soothie is the kind of pacifier she uses: whenever she is tired or upset she asks for her pigandsoody, or at least she used t0. lately she has been asking for pigandsoody, but rejecting “soody.” which is very good. she’s growing up into a big girl, but she’s my baby girl!!!!!) okay, so she has grown up and is not wanting her soothie, but….
2. how do we get away from multiple spankings each night at bedtime. i don’t like it, it is not working and i need to keep her in bed. i would prefer the kids to be sleeping BEFORE 10:00 pm if possible. today brin slept HARD until 8:30 am because she was so exhausted.
3. on a different note completely, why does dane keep sticking his finger in his right ear when there is nothing wrong. the ent said it looked great. why do i keep seeing his finger poking into his ear? besides, it’s his left ear he can’t hear out of!
4. the best part about maya EVER, is that she has a beautiful and sincere heart. for example, we watched the movie wall-e, and she sobbed and sobbed because they shot wall-e out into outerspace and it wasn’t nice of them and what was going to happen to wall-e? how do i encourage her soft heart, but stop her from being (seriously for lack of a better term) a cry-baby? any ideas? right now i’m brainstorming and looking for ANYTHING!
on a completely different note, i want to tell you about this pictures. my family has been seeing dr. kolacz since they were all born. so for maya that is 4 years, brin 2 years, and dane 1 year. oh, and for me almost 10 years. we LOVE LOVE dr. kolacz. maya practically bowls her over with hugs when we see her. to make a LLLOOOONNNNGGGG story short, our clinc closed and dr. kolacz went to a different clinic. chris says it isn’t farther away, but it seems like it. plus with all the multiple trips we had been making for dane’s ear alone, i thought, this was a good time to switch to a pediatrician. so we did. (she is still MY doctor, but i won’t see her now for a while until after Fourdatzky is born) during the last time we saw her as a “family,” (i think it was me, dane, and maya–i know, terrible english) we gave her a card.
