two happy things to report on. (well many many many of course really since Jesus blesses my life continually) anyways first - potty training day one went VERY well. augustine was 100% on the potty yesterday until he went outside to play with david when he got home from work and i assume just got distracted and didn't want to stop playing. he had just two accidents. either way, extremely optimistic about the process. im a little fearful as to when to start putting underwear on him for naps though. hmmm..
second happy thing is that olive only woke up once last night! whoo hoo! i think it was because i just let her snuggle the entire night with either david or i, usually she is part of the night between us, part of the night snuggled on one of our chests. she is the complete opposite of augustine's personality in this regard - clearly faring towards david's personality and affinity for physical closeness. augustine is much more like me, really likes physical space. anyways olive's sleep patterns are becoming more and more normal and i am no longer feeling angry, frustrated, or exhausted (which i was about two weeks ago).
tonight we are going to david's summer company party. it's such a bummer that it isn't at the country club because aug would love to go swimming just one more time before the weather gets too cool and/or the pools close for the season. oh well. little duder is coming with david and i to the party as there will be quite a few other kids and they're showing a movie in their playroom. (ps david's boss is insanely rich) little ditty is staying home to be babysat by my parents. please pray she falls asleep for them while we are gone! once she has fallen asleep for david without me being present and once she has fallen asleep for my dad (at 10pm after lots of tears and fighting sleep ill add. i was staying the night at their house that night)
yesterday we had some friends over - beth, nikki and her son devin, and michelle with her son saylor. you might say devin and augustine had a good time together...
after they left it was time for the bubs to take a nap and auggie went down without a fight (it was 3 pm so no surprises!) but olive was being a fussy lass so instead of putting her in the swing as usual i took her up to our bed, which always makes her conk out. i woke up two hours later and david was home and watching tv. no diapers folded, no dinner made (how 1950s of me right?). that was a fantastic nap! i was just lamenting earlier that day about how the days of napping are long gone (unless it's on the weekend and david takes the kiddos).
