Figuring things out

It's really neat to watch kids figure things out. Sid likes to get to the bottom of how things work. He looks under cars, pushes dogs over, and topples chairs to see if all the legs go up at once. Lets hope something happens and he has a finger seperation soon. He's doing well now, but the surgery needs to be behind him so he can heal and move on. Check this out, he watched me twice, then did it:

Kids are weird

What else can I say ? He's spinning the bicycle trailer's wheel, and happy.

Then he licks the wheel, WHILE IT'S SPINNING.

Kids really are weird. :)

Cousin Bryce's game

Sidney had a good time at his cousin Bryce's soccer game today. He scooted around and stole soccer balls from everyone. Then he tried to join the game a few times. Nothing like getting a toddler out in the fresh air around 5pm.

This suggestion should be stamped on every box of diapers!

Melatonin, we love you

We've had a little time with Sidney on melatonin at night. So far, it has done a very nice job of helping him sleep through the night. We're enjoying having a bed to ourselves too, as he sleeps in his own. One feeding around midnight seems to keep him content, and means mommy can sleep much better. Apparently daddy sleeps through everything anyway, so he doesn't really know how much has changed.

He's doing well as he's weened also. He's down to one session before bed, and one around midnight. He surprises us with what he can handle. The crying has lessoned, and we're paying more attention to what he wants, instead of just trying to ignore the crying. Seems to work.

This weeks word is 'light' and 'up up up'. :)

Doing much better now.

If I were a poet I'd write something beautiful to melatonin.

Another 2001

2001 was a bad year for us. Basicly a bunch of stuff happened that wasn't positive. Here we are, 2007, same deal. Basically nothing has happened that is good so far, and we're only 10 1/2 days in.

Sidney is crying again. Imagine that. 16 months old and he's going to be screaming until he's 3 or 4, right ? Nothing like waking up at 11pm and listening to a toddler tantrum the rest of the night.

Medicaid/care/whatever won't approve any surgeries by competent, Apert experienced surgeons. The 'local guys' should be 'good enough' they say. Great, 2 or 3 fingers on a hand are enough instead of 5, right ?

Maybe we're not praying enough, no wait... TITHING enough, right ? If I just send $14 to some yahoo in Nebraska he'll pray for us, and our son, and everything will be ok. Sorry, haven't had a prayer answered in 35 years, and I'm spotting a trend.

I was going to say I was sorry for the negative energy, but I'm full of it, and I'm not.
