Another day gone by in the blink of an eye...or so it seems. Every day has begun to have some sort of order to it - and it all seems to revolve around naps. We were blessed with the fact that Alexa would nap anywhere as a baby. It's not so easy to do that when there is more than one. I suppose I should be happy they are crib sleepers...at least during the day.
We actually made it outside today. It was beautiful this afternoon so I got everyone dressed and headed out. Our first stop was at my old office. Alexa did her usual "I need to be the center of attention" gig. She made the mistake of interrupting Dorie and did not like the result (I want to learn that trick..I'm not even sure what she said but it ended the interruption). Our next stop was Sue's house. Alexa always has to stop in...and it always leaves me feeling rude. She wasn't home but her husband and daughter were. I had to speak to Alexa several times about trying to take their rocks.
The fresh air seems to have worked wonders because everyone was asleep within minutes of getting into their beds. Now if I could only go to mine...too much laundry and dishes and picking up to catch up on.
One thing that did happen that I'm not too happy about is the fact that Jacob swallowed something from Alexa's backpack. I had gone into my room to look for Elizabeth (who had gotten herself stuck in our closet). When I went back into the other room he was gagging on it but nothing came up and nothing was found when I swept his mouth. This is becoming a daily occurrence - I think I need to update my Heimlich abilities!
