061809 Gregory and Lucy2
Originally uploaded by smileahug.
A little over a week ago Gregory was playing on the deck in his little pool. He dropped one of his toys over the edge. He asked me to get it for him. I said daddy would get it for him when he got home from work. Some things are too frustrating for a blind mom to go find. These are the exact words Gregory said “Because he’s the best daddy in the sea”.
My response was “Yes, Gregory he is”.
So Gregory is still full of sweet things and little Lucy is letting herself be heard too. Lucy is much more noisy than Gregory was when he was a baby. Lucy demands more attention. On her more noisy days she makes me wonder if I really know what I am doing as a mom. I do guess each child is different. She is now 9 pounds 6 ounces. She is growing very well and is up in the 90th percentile.
As of now I don’t feel like having two children is much harder. The harder part is going back to less sleep. I do enjoy getting a full night of sleep. Lucy is worth it though. Oh and Gregory is doing awesome with potty training. Day time is practically perfect and he makes it through the night about four nights a week.
Gregory started in a martial arts class this past Tuesday. He has his second class tomorrow. During Gregory’s first class Gregory just stood there. The instructor and his assistant really tried to get Gregory to be a part of the class. I think he was too nervous. I am hoping tomorrow will go better. I know he likes the class though, because on the way home from the bus stop Gregory was doing all the things that the other kids did in the class. He was also very excited and he really likes his uniform. I guess he just needs to get over his shyness. We are going to give the class a month and see if it is right for Gregory or not. I think the interaction will be good for him.
Cullen is doing well too. He really likes his new position at work and can’t wait till his training is over so he can go to his own store. Now he is an assistant grocery store manager. His hours are a bit longer, but I think he likes the work more so the longer hours he doesn’t mind so much.
Well today after mopping all the floors, cleaning three bathrooms, cooking, cleaning the kitchen, washing, folding, and putting away three loads of laundry, not to mention caring for Gregory and Lucy I need a nap. I don’t think I will get one, but I am going to sit and zone while playing with Hot Wheel cars. Gregory is calling.
