today is Tuesday right?

I don't believe I mentioned this but yesterday I moved all the Christmas presents in our room to make some room for the crib mattress to go in the corner so that Peanut will have a bed of her own to sleep in. She has been waking up for 2 to 3 hours a night for the last 2 weeks and we are both exhausted. Well last night she started out in her little bed until about 1am. Then she woke up and instead of walking to our bed she started walking through the house crying. I got up and got her to bring her to our bed. I quick nursed her (I know I was backsliding) and then handed her over to J's side of the bed. She quickly went to sleep and slept the rest of the night!

This morning after taking the two older kids to school Red, Peanut and I went to our friends house to play. Her oldest turned 4 at the end of October so he is about 7 months older than Red but they usually play pretty well...except for today. They had this love/hate relationship they basically hated each other the whole time we were there until I said it was time to go. Then they clung to each other for dear life. BOYS. We were the first to leave because we needed to get to Peanut's doctor's appointment.

At her doctor's appointment Red was a holy terror...I thought about making the appointment for when he was in school but that would be in January and I wanted to get it done so I went today. Since she was a new patient I had so many papers to fill out and Red was climbing on the wheelchairs and playing with the drinking water and bringing Peanut down with him. So annoyed. I even told him at the beginning when we got there if he could be a good boy I would take him out to eat for lunch. Well that didn't happen. Ok back to her appointment. The doctor checked her motion in her hips and he said that looked good. She showed him how she walks and then he had her get an xray. That pretty much freaked her out. They had me take her diaper off and lay her on this cold metal bed and then hold her chest and legs down. The xray showed that everything looked good. The doctor wants to see her in 2 months just to make sure everything is the same or better. That is so good to know that there isn't anything majorly wrong with her hips.

As for me I have decided that I need to start working out. I am so active in the summer and I feel good during those months and then it gets cold and I shut down most phyiscal activity. I did a 20 minute work out today and will probably be really sore tomorrow but tomorrow I'm going to do 30 minutes. We'll see if this helps me. Just wanted to document when I started this journey.

Well going to go serve dinner that just got done and then it is family movie night with Babes in Toyland! Oh yeah couch snuggle time :)

So glad the doc appointment went so well. Except for crazy Red, of course. ;)
Have a great night!

I am right there with you. Hubby is on night shift this week, so all the kids instinctively know that they should not sleep since Daddy's not home!! So, I also am unsure of the day, week, year???? I am so glad Peanut is okay, and I can still recall so vividly the time my daughter threw herself on the floor at the doctor's office waiting room, and I had to carry her and her brother out of there. All I can say is that you have my sympathy. =) And, hey, you lived to smile about it! =)

I'm so very glad the Dr. report was good!

My kids always seem to really show their fannies in a Dr's office. Then I feel like a bad mom, and worry I'm going to get reported to DCF...for what, I have no idea, but I still feel insecure!

Happy for you all that the hip appointment went okay! Good luck with the workouts!! The beginning is the hardest!

Oh, Red, Red, Red... Gotta love that kid. :)

Glad Peanut's hips are good. My kids HATE x-rays. Freaks the heck out of them. I'll never forget Evan's face as he cried from the CAT scan... shivers....
