We got out of the house!

Without the kids! For a whole night (until about 1:30am)! (Thanks Grandma and Grandpa - who came to our place and stayed over with the kids). Yes, Daddy and I got to go out - together. We went to see Ron do comedy. He was headlining and it was very funny. (Which it better have been, because it took us almost 3 hours to get there!! Should have only taken, at most, 1.5 hours.... Stupid traffic...) Our dinner was a quick munch at Subway rather than a sit-down, but it was still nice to get out.

Zachary is doing really well on his tummy. He can push up with his arms/hands and stay up for a bit. As my doctor said, "That's a four-month-old trick. You know that, right?" (Zach was 11 weeks at the time). He can keep his upper body and head up while reaching out for things now. He's also getting pretty good at his aim. He'll grab my finger with both his hands and put it in his mouth. As for sleep? That's actually going fairly well. He's consistently doing at least one "long" sleep (usually about 5 hours, sometimes 4, and rarely, but sometimes 6 hours). He's in his crib at night and goes right back in to sleep after he eats in the middle of the night, which is great.

Alexandria is fazing out her afternoon naps, which is really fun..... She's at the point where she doesn't need a nap in the afternoon, but by dinner she needed a nap! It makes her really fun for the rest of the evening!! She was in quite a state yesterday morning (after about 2 -3 days with no afternoon nap). Grandpa and Grandma got to witness that one. A few meltdowns. She's also getting more stubborn and has "hearing issues" (a glimpse into her teen years, maybe?). She is still so fun to be around, though, and has a great imagination. She still loves her little brother - even though today she said, "Zachary gets to do whatever he wants". Then a minute later, "I don't get to do what I want."

Oh, and this one. I had to keep my serious face on, but it was hard. I was asking her to put something back. I asked once nicely, twice nicely, the third time a bit more stern, then the fourth time in my "loud voice". She looked at me a went "Geez" in a very grown-up tone. (She then put the item back.) I got her into her seat at the table and I said "Mommy was getting frustrated". She said "No, you were mad". She's getting more and more "grown-up" all the time. Where'd my baby go?!
