No more training wheels!!!

On Tuesday night my mom came over for dinner, she had to bring a few ingredients though as we didn't have any left! Opps! :) We had a nice dinner and then went to show my mom the new ducks and Kristinas new bike, with no training wheels! She wanted me to push her around the driveway to show my mom how she was doing.
I was holding onto her shirt and my mom suggested that I hold onto the seat, smart woman! So we did two laps and then my mom did one. She was doing great but needed to look where she was going and not look down and she would be able to balance better. My mom took her over to the grass to try it on her own, Kristina was so excited! She did really good right off the bat and could go 10 or so feet. It didn't take long for her to pick up on it. Soon she was going from the far corner of the greenhouse, around the garden and over to Grannys garden. It was awesome, I knew she would pick it up fast, but I had no idea how fast.
She was so proud of herself! Nana and I were very proud too! It was great that my mom was here to see her achieve it! It was however to bad that Kris wasn't, he was over visiting Uncle Bruce and Auntie Mickey but he has 137 pics to show it all! Yes this new camera takes a lot of pics and fast!!! She was very cute, she started out showing us where her goal would be, they are learning about goal setting in school, and then achieved it right away and then surpassed it! Way to go baby!!!

I figured it was about time I put up some new photos of the kids!

Sharing with his new friend Rebecca Ann

They were so cute wrestling and playing together - you can really feel the love between the two of them, he cries at the bottom of the ladder, and tries to climb it, when shes in her room

Pretty in his Sissys pink hoodie!

Too funny!

So the other night Kristina went to bed like normal, she has been having bad dreams the last few nights but went down fine. She came out of her room though about a half hour later looking lost and confused. I asked her if she needed to pee and she said no I told her to go back to bed. She kind of looked at me funny and kept walking over to me. She had the weirdest look on her face. I asked her what she was doing and she said nothing, so I told her again to go back to bed.

She came right up to me and glared me down. I couldn't help but to start laughing, she was so serious! She just kept staring me down, I was howling with laughter and kept looking at Kris for help. He didn't do anything, just kept laughing with me. I kept telling her to go back to bed but she wouldn't look away from me. It was actually starting to get scary, you know those phyco kids, she looked like that, sorry but she did.

Finally I stopped laughing and she walked away. I said to go to bed and she walked to the bathroom so I asked if she had to pee and she said no like she was all annoyed and why would I ask that. So then she turns around and goes to the front door, obviously we are laughing again at this point and we hear some rustling over at the door so I convince Kris to go see what shes doing cause I just can't handle anymore :) She is putting on her coat! What the heck! So he takes her coat off and coaxes her back to bed. It was hilarious.

So a little while later Kris goes to bed and Kristina gets up again so I send her in to sleep with him for now and I go out for a smoke before bed. I guess while I was outside Kris was ringing the bell we have in our room for when someones sick. He rang it the whole time. So I come in and hear the bell so head into my room to see whats up. I walk in and say whats up babe and Kristina is facing the wall the points her thumb at Daddy and says its him. She's all annoyed, she says hes been doing this forever and isn't too happy about it. I looked at Kris and burst out laughing, I couldn't help it, it was so funny.

So I ask him what he needs and he points at her and says he wants her out. She rolls over and glares and him and says it would be fine if he would stop ringing the bell. Him and I were just howling, it was hilarious, she was talking like I do when I am all annoyed and she was just so serious. So I left and went to watch more TV before going back in to move her to her bed again.

Thankfully that was the last we heard from her that night. It was just sooooooooooooo funny!!!

Bye Bye Bubba

Well its done, no more babba for the baby! I decided that I had created a monster so to speak :) He wouldn't go down without it unless he just fell asleep in the van or something. He was addicted, more so than coke I think! So we went from 8 or 9 oz to 3 or 4 for a week and then I ran out of milk, opps. I never do that, seriously I am so organized and stuff that it really never happens.

He ended up with only 2 oz. He wasn't to happy, he downed it really quick, I heard him throw it on the floor and he fell asleep. Hmmm, I thought, instead of doing 2 or 3 oz for a week lets just be done. I kind of hesitated because I really didn't want to deal with it, and I figured he would be miserable but I persevered because I knew how bad it was for his teeth to go down with a bottle three times a day.

So the next nap of the day I put a sippy cup of water in his crib and kissed him and said goodnight and put him down like normal. He reached out for his babba but I just handed him his cup. He stood up and threw it, little temper! I just kept walking out and closed the door like normal and he only cried for three minutes or so. Wow, I was thinking this was too good to be threw. I washed up all the bubbas and hid them so Kris wouldn't give him one. I hadn't even told him because it was so spur of the moment.

Hes been great ever since, its been like a week and a half. Still cries for a few minutes and then goes right to sleep no problem. I have just left the sippy cup of water in there for if he gets thirsty. We did that with Kristina too, she still has a water bottle in her room. You know how it is when you wake up thirsty sometimes.

I will put some more pics up soon!

Happy Easter

We had an awesome Easter! We hunted for eggs around the house in the morning, had a visit with the neighbours. Then we went over to my aunts for Lunch and another hunt. We all had a great time. Lots of kids and lots and lots of chocolate. Brandon didn't really get the whole thing but he does know he likes chocolate. We came back to the property and hung out with the family and took some more great photos while the kids all played outside. The topper at the end of the day was getting to meet Reesh and Devinders newest little one, a boy, before Kristina and I head out on our "date." We went and saw Hannah Montana the movie. It was excellent, we had some popcorn and Kristina ordered a bottle of water, I know, and I had pop ;) We had a great time just the two of us and then went home to bed. Slept it all of and Kristina has been outside playing with Caleb all day! Excellent weekend!!!
