Monkey Boy

Posted in Buggle Bite at 8:55 pm by Momma

Aidan climbs on EVERYTHING.  He has learned how to climb up the bar stools, and on to the counter.  He climbs on the dining chairs on to the table, on to the monitor heater, over the arms of the couch, on his crib railings…the list is endless.

One morning he spotted an old granola bar wrapper on the kitchen table that his Dad-Oh failed to throw away.  He climbed up the chair and on to the table, grabbed the wrapped and chased me down the house screaming at me and thrusting the wrapper my way.  The only problem?  Dad-Oh took the rest of the box of granola bars on the boat with him.  No chewy goodness for Aidan Daidan.  Let me tell you about all the reasons that Nutrigrain Bars ARE.NOT.THE.SAME!!!  Yeah, I was cussing the Dad-Oh for that one!

He loved climbing on the couch arm and hoping on to the glass on the end table in the sun room.  Since the two walls behind him are all windows and since glass probably isn’t the best material to climb on I took the glass top off and hid it under the couch.  Jokes on me, however because this has not stopped the climbing.  Now instead of a glass pedestal to climb on he has a scaffolding of sorts.  He cliff hangs off the side of the couch and uses the end table stand as his ladder up and down.  There is no stopping this kid.  He does relatively good, no major booboos yet, it only takes once I suppose….

PS Deeder’s a big brother!  Baby Carly Annalise is here!

True to My Word

Posted in Buggle Bite at 8:13 pm by Momma

I have posted several baby Kenzie pictures on Carly’s website. She is so darn cute, ALMOST makes me want to have another! ALMOST!!! Now I have the perfect scenario, I can get my infant fix loving and cuddling on her, then send her back to her Mommy when she cries and needs the bee-boo at 2 am! Kinda like Grandma’s! It really is a good gig!

Okay, I suppose I should talk about MY kid, huh? He had a fun day today. We had a morning play date at Isabel’s house. She and Aidan have the exact same hair and eye color. They look like they could be related!  She is getting the hang of walking now and was trying to keep up with Aidan, but every time she finally got to where he was, he had decided he was done being there and off he went! I should have brought my camera!

After I got home from work Aidan and I had some fun outside on the swing set. I swear that kid would be perfectly content if I left him in there all day. I suppose he’d probably like a snack or two every so often and maybe a swing of water, but other than that he’d be pleased as pie to sit on his rump and swing all day. I gotta teach that kid to pump!

One more day of work, then my four day weekend!! I can’t even wait! I so wish I had a summer break!!!

Carly Jo’s Big News

Posted in Buggle Bite at 7:25 pm by Momma

Today at 8:43 am Carly Jo became a big sister.  Miss Kenzie Joy has made her grand entrance into the world.  She weighs 9 pounds 4 ounces.  Nope, no typo….she’s really NINE pounds!  21 inches long and has bright blue eyes.  It doesn’t look like she’ll be a red head like her sister.  What very little hair she has is dark brown and curly.

I visited this morning and I had fully intended on taking pictures and video for the site but I had a total blonde moment and forgot my camera.  When I went back this afternoon they were both busy.  So alas pictures will have to wait until tomorrow.  😦

Mommy and baby are doing well, just in need of some serious rest!  Congrats Shuler family!  We couldn’t be happier!

Coming Back From The Dead

Posted in Buggle Bite at 12:02 pm by Momma

I am sloooowly coming back from the dead.  Dad-Oh so lovingly shared his funk-a-roo with me.  Never in my life have I had a more painful cough.  I am hoping we are both over the worst and so far Aidan-Daidan has seemed to dodge the cooties!  I am keeping my fingers crossed!

Yesterday I was battling a 102 fever, but since it was absolutely GORGEOUS out I mustered up every ounce of energy I had to take Aidan to the park.  We took a stroller ride through Totem Park, where he had a blast playing in the grass with sea shells.  Then we went and got an ice cream cone and sat on a bench and gobbled it up.  My throat was burning like a thousand suns!  Then we headed down to Harbor Park for some swing action.  We were out for over three hours!  If that doesn’t get me some kind of award I don’t know what will!

I am still not 100% so since Aidan is napping I am going to take advantage of this time to rest too!

“Trudge, Trudge, Trudge!!!”

Posted in Buggle Bite at 7:29 pm by Momma

Quick and to the point.  I am tired.  I am going to bed.  Aidan seems to be on the mend.  PLEASE!!!  However, apparently when it rains it pours and now Dad-Oh has some major funk-a-roo.  Influenza?  Ebola?  Ewok?  Who knows?  He was up all night last night with the hot/colds.  On top of his major chunky cough.  I have him drinking tons of fluid and alternating between Tylenol and Motrin to try to break his fever.  If you’re keeping track…currently I am the only member of this household not poppin’ pain meds–YET!

I have one more day of work, then my three day weekend.  Unfortunately we are in session and I have to work Memorial Day!  *Humpt*  But I get the following Monday off as an alternate.  So I have a four day weekend to keeping me trudging along….

I am hoping my new BFF Ty-Lenol will keep my boys in dreamland through out the night!

Over The Hump?

Posted in Buggle Bite, Motherhood, Parenting, toddler at 7:25 pm by Momma

Yesterday was by far the most difficult day of Aidan Daidan’s 22 months.  Teething pain combined with the new found pre-terrible two tantrums is not a good mix.  Aidan spent much of yesterday in a puddle on the floor kicking his legs and pounding his arms.  For no real reason other than to throw a fit.  Me, being the kind, devoted, loving mother I am just ignored him and carried on with my things.

Granted my little angel was in pain, I didn’t totally blow him off….  He was chalked full of Tylenol, teething tabs, and a quick sweep of orajel.  I would have been happy to hold him and console him if he would have wanted that.  He was in one of those hold me/don’t hold me, feed me/I’m not hungry, I’m tired/I don’t wanna sleep kinda moods.  So alas he pounded his frustration out on the carpet.

Surprisingly, he slept fairly well.  He woke up a bit early for my liking, but beggars can’t be choosers I’m told!  He was in a decent mood all morning and we even managed to get a few errands done and make it to the park before I headed off to work!  He was still a bit out of sorts at the park.  He refused to have his feet touch the ground, but was elated to sit on his rump in the swing for half an hour.

After work I came home to a happy, playful and very happy to see Momma toddler.  A VERY nice treat.  I can see three out of the four eye teeth cut through the gums, so I am very much hoping we are over the teething hump!  I don’t know why getting teeth is so hard for my little doodle!  He’s tough as nails when it comes to just about everything else, so I suppose I can cut the poor little guy some slack!
