The second reason I haven't been blogging is that Brooks went through a 4 week phase where he decided he only needed a 30 min nap everyday...yikes!! So between trying to get Ace work done and getting some much needed downtime without Brooks climbing all over me, there wasn't any time to blog! So here are some pictures from the last several weeks to get everyone updated on what's been going on.
Labor Day weekend we went to the State Fair. It was the last couple days I felt normal still because the nausea hit on that Monday...ugh! Brooks had fun seeing the animals at the petting zoo.
When I went to a consignment sale a couple of weeks ago, I found a used Junior Asparagus that sang a song when you pressed his mouth. Since Brooks loves Veggie Tales, for just $2 I had to grab it. We let him take it to bed with him, and he probably plays it for about 15 min before he finally falls asleep every night and probably off and on for 20 min or so in the morning while he's slowly waking up. Turns out it eats batteries like crazy and we've had to change them twice now in about a 3 week time frame. I'm gonna have to switch to chargeable batteries or something because this special cheap bedtime toy could get expensive! Here Brooks is helping Daddy 'fix' Junior before bedtime.
Last week Brooks also had his first real accident. He scraped his face on a small lava rock in our backyard. He has recently discovered that spinning in circles makes him dizzy and that it is kinda fun to do. He was doing that in our backyard, and like usual, he gently fell to his knees once he got dizzy. Thinking he was ok, he stood up maybe just a little too quick and was still dizzy and stumbled off the sidewalk right into the only rock in the area. He cried a little, but was actually tougher about it than I thought he'd be! I think he was kind of proud of it...and it looked kinda cool since it was almost shaped in a Z!
Well that's about all for now, and I'll try and update more often now that Brooks has returned to 1 hr 30 min to 2 hr naps everyday!
