The day after...

a very long night.
I don't know if it was because I had a cup of coffee later in the day or if it was growing pains.
Ethan did not sleep.
Therefore none of us did.
We had a fun day out of the house and both kids where in bed by 8pm. I was thrilled and whirled around the house cleaning for an hour so I could settle into painting for the rest of the night.
I got part of the base coat done. That is it.

By midnight Ethan had woken up a few times and would not go back down without a huge fight and so much noise that he would also wake up Kaitlyn.
We finally figured that it might be hunger and fed him a snack. He ate and drank a lot but he still wouldn't sleep. He thrashed and kicked and cried off and on till 4:30 this morning and then was ready to get up at 8:30.
I really hope tonight is better, we have been making such great progress with Kaitlyn and last night it all got thrown out the window.

Enough whining, I think I will dwell on what we did yesterday for a few minutes.
See the scowl in the second photo. This is something he has been doing a lot. Rather than talk and say what he feels when he doesn't like something he scowls. and he doesn't forget things either, he will hold his anger and continue scowling at you for a day or two if you tick him off enough.

Playing baby. I have no idea about the bowl on the head.

Kaitlyn and I love to dance for the 10 sec timer and then run up and see how silly we look.

Oh, and for those of you wondering I got my boots at Zeller's. Wal-mart had the floral ones but they where a much lower rise.

In the afternoon we headed down to the rink to meet up with my mom sis and bro and a few cousins to go skating. On the way there I went through the intersection where the "baby cops" (according to Em) were taking turns learning how to direct traffic.

They are actually RCMP in training and as a kid we used to call them the "wanna-be's''.

I had to go around the block a second time to see them again and was laughing so hard I was nearly crying and my sides ached. They were pointing different directions and seemed so confused. The ones on the corner watched and pointed at traffic, maybe trying to help.

Maybe you had to be there, but it was hilarious to watch.

I had no idea that there was actual training for this, never thought about it I guess.

I am in love with my new rubber boots!

My mom is going to kill me for this one I am sure, but I just love her whispies, now I know where I get them from.

Can you tell he's mine?

This afternoon he is going for his 18 month shots. If you are a praying person please send up a little prayer for him. I am always freaked out about shots so I hope it goes well.

My SIL is applying for the RCMP - I'll have to tell her what she's in for! Love the dancing for the timer idea!

Oh boy, you must be exhausted!
I'll say a prayer for Ethan's shots, and for a good night's sleep tonight!

Love the outfits, you need to teach me some of your cool fashion sense.

Hope the shots went well and that he sleeps like a rock tonight.

I have a photo of that same corner, my Sister took me to the cool shops across the street :).

I do love your boots, and I may head to Zellers as they are funkier than the ones I saw at Walmart.
