The little man has become more attached to his friend Lily... We babysat Lily overnight and the two munchkins had a BLAST!!! The little man cried when she left in the morning. Sooo sad!!! Luckily, not 2 hours later, he was back with his little buddy while mom and dad attended a graduation. I hear that when he awoke, he did not call out for mom or dad, but of his buddy, Lily! How precious is that.
In true "busy season" form, my mom is visiting for about a week and a half. We are all headed to Boston this weekend to visit my brother. Meanwhile, I need to be writing more reports for work, as I only have about 4 weeks left before I 'quit' again. Then, when we return, friends are moving, summer events are accumulating, and swimsuit season begins...
We are going to need all the naps we can get coming up, I am afraid!

Update on "sicky"... A virus that is running its course. We are on day 3, but things seem to be getting better. The little man is still too sick to go to daycare, so no work for Mommy!

So, last night, when I vowed to go to bed early to be well rested to write my reports for work today, someone else had better plans. These plans involved a late night wakeup, drugs, a strip tease, and a bubble bath at 2am. I wish this was how it seams... but unfortunately, the little man had a REALLY high fever which we were trying frantically lower. It seems the loss of appetite and crankiness was for a reason. Poor Little Man!!!!!
The best part of all this was that I got to sleep until 8am and have had plenty of time to write my report today while the little man is asleep during his (hopefully) first nap! We are off the the doctor when he wakes up. I am sure there is nothing else we can do, but they want to check him out, apparently.

So, since I am feeling guilty, this will be a short one. I hope you are more productive than I have been today!

(I am not sure you can see it, but since the shower isn't for 2 weeks, I kept the bottom tray on to be sure it stayed in one piece)
Yesterady, during naptime*, I was able to get the guest room pretty much cleaned out. Now, I have more things to pile into the shed. I have a few more knick knacks to put away, and that will probably fill up the rest of naptime.
*naptime = the little man tying his darndest to destroy his crib. This consisted of jumping, shaking, and crashing into the walls and mattress. It also included lots of whooping and hollering... If I had known that there was a rodeo going on yesterday afternoon, I would have bought a ticket!

Before we do any of this, though, it is time to finish packing up my winter clothes... and summer clothes... and make way for maternity clothes. It is true that you 'pop' faster with the second... note to self, after baby #2, do MORE situps!!!
I hope this is a long nap.... sleep tight little man.

Today, a special day indeed, was the little guy's 18 month checkup. He is apparently "growing beautifully" and mommy and daddy are doing a "fantastic" job with him! We are so proud. Maybe I am still on a high from the praise of a pediatrician... who knows! (and at this late hour, who cares, really?)
We went to the bank, post office, bakery, had a playdate, dr. appt, sat very still while the barber cut the few hairs on the little man's head, and had ice cream to celebrate our accomplishements. What a full day! To top it off, it was in the low 70s and just gorgeous out! Too bad tomorrow I have to work and the little guy goes to daycare. :( I'll miss you, Munchkin!
