Yesterday, during her bath, Munchkin started blowing bubbles. She put her face in the water and blow! She’d come up with the biggest smile on her face and giggling!
Tonight was just the same. All through the bath, she’d blow bubbles and giggle!
Swimming lessons here we come! I think the next session starts in March.
What a busy weekend!
Friday was a lazy day. Hubby had the day off and spent most of his day napping on the couch. With all the freelance he has been doing on top of his regular work, he’s pretty worn out. That night Hubby, brother-in-law John, and Russ went to the Ice Dogs game. Hubby’s sis, my niece, Munchkin and I watched movies at the their house. It was nice and relaxing. The Ice Dogs lost though.
Saturday morning we got up and started getting ready around 8. It was a little chaotic with trying to pack to go to Niagara Falls, figuring out what we needed to take and bathing Munchkin. But we managed to get out the door with all of munchkin’s stuff and the roast around 12:45. Spent the remainder of the day at the IL’s for Easter dinner.
That night we quickly came back home, grabbed Dakota and our stuff and headed to the Falls. We arrived around 9pm. It was a quiet night. Hubby fell asleep on the couch. Munchkin didn’t fall asleep until 11:30. But she slept until 9am! Woo hoo!
Sunday morning we went to church. Susan and Kyle sat in front of us. Kyle and Munchkin had fun looking at each other. Kyle was baptised the same day as Munchkin. Sunday afternoon, around 3, we picked up Grandma L(Nana) and then headed for the border. With our finger crossed we approached customs. With Munchkin not having a birth certificate and just a travel letter, we weren’t sure how the custom’s people would be. But everything was fine. We picked up Gramma and proceeded to my Aunt’s. Dinner was great! She set a beautiful table and the food was delicious! Munchkin spent time with GG and Nana. She wanted to be up and standing on her feet so they didn’t really get to hold her. But Aunt B did.
Sunday night was another quiet night. Hubby had to work on Monday, and since I forgot my glasses at Aunt B’s we planned to go to her work and pick them up.
Monday morning, Dad drove Hubby to his freelance work and Hubby realised that he had the keys for the truck So mom and I headed to Stoney Creek and got the keys, came home, had lunch and then went to Aunt B’s. We got back just in time to pack up the truck and head to Stone Creek to pick Hubby up.
Phew! Home at last!
When is what they say considered a word? I’m starting a list of the words and “words” that Munchkin says…..
Words she says very clearly:
“Must take in context” words:
Buh = Book
Ree = Read
ball – can also mean balloon
baff = bath
saw = sock
ah-done = all done
chay = change
Jew = Juice
This week when by so quickly! I don’t really remember all that happened. With Munchkin still not at 100% we didn’t go anywhere.
Thursday morning I started feeling really bad and decided to cancel plans with Mom and Dad for the weekend. But Friday night I decided that I needed to get out of the house!
Oh, Thursday I finally got a call from the government people that my EI paperwork got finalized and I will be receiving the maximum per week, minus taxes. The money should be deposited in my account in “4-5 business days” so hopefully that will be Tuesday or Wednesday. Once I get some sort of statement I’ll send that in the City and they can process my top-up. I can’t believe how slow everything takes.
Yesterday we had a great day! I fed Munchkin at 2 and Mom and Dad arrived just as we finished. I quickly took a shower and we were out the door around 3. The RV show was really neat. Lots of different trailers, campers, mobile homes and huge bus-like ones! Munchkin was so good. She was awake for a while and everyone kept commenting on how alert she is. Around 4 she fell asleep and I figured that she’d be up at 4:30 wanting to eat. Well, she woke up at 5 and didn’t really start fussing until 5:45. We got home at 6 and I fed her. I thought that she’d go right to sleep…well she did, but only for about 30 minutes. She at again at 8:30 and again I thought she’d go right to sleep. Well she did, but only for 15 minutes or so. So Mom took Munchkin, awake, and Hubby and I headed out for the movie around 9:10.
The movie was sold out. We wanted to see “Million Dollar Baby”. I was upset because I was really looking forward to being out of the house, without Munchkin with Hubby. He said to me “Is it still a date even if we don’t go to a movie?”
