We went to the beach this past week. It was not much of a vacation for me. Sort of like a sandy, long, hot, difficult, expensive shopping trip. The good news is Emma loved the beach this year. She loved the sand and the water. She even played in the sand, picking it up with her hands and everything. I was amazed at how different she was from last year. She started her “why’s” this week. She would go round and round.
Why are you hungry?
Because I haven’t eaten
Why haven’t you eaten?
Because I haven’t had any food.
Why haven’t you had food?
Because we haven’t gotten any yet.
Why haven’t we gotten any yet?
Because it wasn’t time to get food.
Why wasn’t it time to get food?
All week, almost every conversation was like that. And if you asked her to do something “No way!”. I don’t know where she started that at.
Lexi started to let go of things when she is standing up now. Just a few times she has done it and of course fell right down. She was a pill this week though. I think she was teething and we kept her full of medicine but she was still extra clingy to me. She wouldn’t go to sleep well. She was great in the car though. Good thing because we were in it a lot.
We didn’t have any big blow-ups with family members this week but SIL was her normal self and only can stand so much. The bad thing the kids are the ones that normally get the brunt of it. I really wish she would get some help. Anyway, we had a good time with our nephew. He is really turning into someone fun to be around. He does smart off and is pretty spoiled but he’s really funny and a good kid. Emma and Skyler fought a lot. And played a lot. They are a lot like sisters. They do everything together but usually fight the whole time. Usually it is Emma stealing away a toy that Skyler has and Skyler screams to high-heaven about it until she gets it back. They are both good at hitting each other too.
