Because sometimes bullet points are easier!

  • Chase's naps have improved... drastically! We still have the occasional 45 minute nap but more often than not he is down for over an hour. Grandpa says it's the country air... I am tempted to agree with him.
  • We actually have a routine throughout the day. Up at 6 am. Nap at 9 am. Up around 10 - 10:30. Lunch at 12:30. 2nd nap at 1 - 1:30. Up around 2 - 2:30. Dinner at 5. Bath at 5:30. Stories at 5:45. Nursing then sleep by 6:30 - 6:45. Fan-freaking-tastic!
  • I watched Toddlers and Tiaras and I am thoroughly disgusted. Everything about the billion dollar industry makes me physically ill.
  • I like to be prepared... I went to Target and stocked up on diapers. Tip if you use Target diapers... get a pack of Huggies or Pampers for the long nights. They just hold up better when you are talking 11 hours of sleeping.
  • I love this sight in the morning... Chase loves helping daddy pick out socks.
  • The Jeep is fixed mechanically but not physically. The flimity flam and whooja thingy were causing problems so Martin Garage fixed it for me. Next comes the window... hopefully by the end of the week. Then I don't want to hear a peep from it for at least another 5,000 miles.
  • Chase has been extremely interested in noise lately. On our way into the house the trees were rustling in the wind and Chase was absolutely enchanted by it... stared for at least a minute. He has also been noticing when he makes the noise... and then he tries to duplicate it. When I first noticed him doing this, I was amazed. It seems like such a 'big boy' thing to do. I guess I have a big boy!
  • We are selling the Honda tomorrow! YAY!

I'm in love with that picture of Chase. I love the little tip toes diaper butt! :) Glad everything is going well. Talk to you soon!

The pic of Adam in a suit with chase by his side is Priceless.

PS. Jeep's little motor thing actually caught on fire but luckily died out on its own (the popping sound we heard). So it wasn't just the normal broken rotator thing that most jeeps get - i was almost injured by Lar's Jeeps' window... So i guess we count ourselves lucky that its a broken window and not a car caught on fire :-/

I am so glad for you that Chase is taking better naps. I know you must be beside yourself.

And ditto on all of the comments about the picture with Chase and his Daddy. It is adorable. ;)

Oh, BTW, what is that ticker thing at the top of your blog? It terrifies me. ;)
