ok, got to keep going here
I feel bad leaving where I did, and Jonathan is back to sleep. You know it probably would of been nice for me to tell you bout my family instead of just jumping right in with that. So here it goes.
My name is Amanda and I am married to my wonderful Husband Paul. We have been married for 6 years.
Thomas, my 2 1/2 year old, is a wonderful little wield toddler! To say the least. He is smart for his age, I think, but then again don't all partents think their kid is smart for their age? It is ok to be a proud mommy. He is completely potty trained, exept for our little poop problems. He is very musically inclined. He loves any thing involving music and even has his own little gitar, that he dearly loves. He is a little on the wield side and has gotten worse the older he gets, however keep in mind he is a boy! It was so funny, yesterday I was in the shower and he was at nap and he decided he was going to go potty all by himself. Well....I get out of the shower and he runs to me, naked I might add, and says "Mommy, I go potty all by self" Great, I am so excited, I didn't have to take him. Well then he proceeds to tell me " fruit snacks gone" (they get a fruit snack, instead of candy for peeing on the potty, I just put like 5 packs in there) I go look and sure enough he was so proud of himself for going by himself that he ate every single one of the fruit snacks. And I have to addmitt I was a little upset cuz that is all jon like to eat, he don't like candy (don't ask I don't know what is wrong with the kid) So then I tell him he needs to get dress and now he has nothing for a treat since he ate them all. So he says "no wet" oh, well then not only did he eat all the treats, but he peed himself too...so I'm wondering what is going through his head!
ok, for Jonthan my 17 month old. he is a 6 week preemie and a wonderful little toddler. However he is having effects from being preemie or there is something else going on with him, can't find anything yet. He is involved with speech, OT, PT and DT theropies. He is on a 10 to 11 month level for about everything, his pt is more like 13 to 14 months maybe even more now. He had tubes put in his ears and is improving greatly in speech, or so I think...Theropist still says he has a long way to go. But hey the baby can tell me "go pee pee" so that is great improvement in my book, he would not even say mama before. The first time he said mommy was the happiest, ok one of the happiest, days of my life, to hear those wonderful words come from a child is the most blessed thing. He did fail his hearing test which explains the not speaking part. But now he has past since getting tubes and doing much better. His head is on the large side and is becoming an issue too. But will update as thing unfold there. Lets just say he is in the 30% for weight and 40% for height but in the 130% for head, he is way off the charts.
Well Jonathan is up so I will have to continue later.
correction on Thomas weight at birth
I lied, ok..got them mixed up..he was 5pd, 13oz...I was close, jon jon was 5pd and 5oz. ok got to go now
another fun day in the life of amanda
So I made it back, two days in a row, I am proud of myself. There is so much I need to write and I know, I know..I said I would type up Jon Jons birth story. But I don't have time right now, may have to wait till after Christmas. We are making things for Christmas so a lot of my time is going to that right now.
So today we went shopping. Some Christmas shopping and some I had to do. Hung McDs over the kids heads. Worked pretty well. They were pretty good, so they got to have McDs for lunch. Went to the library...ok, here is a recomendation for those who have two toddlers who are hungery and tired..DON'T take them to the library..I was tring to pass time as it was only 10:30am and we don't usally eat lunch till 11am. NOT a smart idea. We did survive. So that is good, but it was a quick in and out trip.
Thomas is doing ok. he complains alot bout his head, ear and toe hurting. I think he is looking for attention. Last night I let him stay up and watch tv with me. It was so nice. We both cuddled on the couch. He was bout to fall asleep so I took him to bed. He had two accidents yesterday. Don't know what that was all about. Poopy accidents so maybe he does still have issues. It surprises me though as he hadn't had one is so long and he had been telling us when he needed to poo and he would go on the potty. Maybe with jon jon in the hospital maybe he took a couple of steps back for now. Give him time and I am sure he will catch back up.
Jon jon is doing better. No coughing at all, no fever, no throwing up. So looks like he is finally over all of the sickness for now. Hope it don't come back. I am taking lysal through out the house...no more grems!!!! I have a bad feeling we are in for a bad winter with him. Oh well, guess thats the way life is. I can't believe both my baby are almost three and almost two. Where did the time go. I want another baby but Paul wants to wait a while. Three to Four years...seems like forever away. I did change birth control pills to the new one, Seasonale. So far I don't care much for it. I find myself depressed, tired and worn out with a lot of PG symptoms...you know...feel like your breast are going to fall off, tired all the time, no energy, starving and sick to your tummy, and peeing all the time. It is kinda wierd. I am waiting till next Wed. and I think I am going to test just to make sure that I am not. When I changed pills we didn't use any backup and I was on an antibotic so there is a small chance I may be pregnant. I hope so...I am ready. Paul said it would be ok if I was, just wanted to wait till we were more out of debt. So if I am, it is ok. Guess that is all I have time for right now..got to get back to work, cleaning the kitchen. Write later.
