As I was making dinner tonight, Alex wanted to go downstairs to be with Ryan. He was being hyper, and I clearly remembering saying, “Okay, be careful going down the stairs.” He turned to look at me to say something, slipped, and fell backwards down the steps. Feet over head, flipping as he crashed to the landing. I screamed and threw the plate I was holding. Ryan rushed and fell up the stairs to grab him.

He was stunned, then cried for a minute, but was fine. He banged his side, mostly. He didn’t even want ice, and recovered so quickly. Ryan and I were still shaking an hour later. So scary.

When we were installing the car seats in the car at the Long Term BWI lot, Alex was in the front seat. He told us that he put the EZPass up on the windshield.

Now that we’re waiting in line to pay in order to leave the lot, he asked why the EZPass doesn’t let us skip the line. How brilliant is that!? It takes a 3 year old to come up with a great idea!

Oh the things he says

- I had a rough day today. (On Monday)

- So, how was your day today? (On Tuesday)

- I don’t want to be a grown-up yet. I want to be a kid a lot longer. (Today)

- (Laying in bed) I’m cold. My pants just fell off all by themselves. (Today)

So dramatic

When I picked Alex up from school today, he said: “Mommy, I had a rough day today.” So silly.

Katie had a great day of giggling though! She’s so happy.

And this morning…

Monday, 10. February 2014 10:58

Around 6:30 a.m., I watched Alex through the monitor checking out the window (to see if the sun is out). It was still dark, so he tried to lay back down. He then sat back up, quietly thinking. I watched him get up and put his animals on his rocking chair. He sat back in bed. Then, he got up again and opened his door. He came to the kitchen, gave me a hug and kiss, and said “Mommy, the sun is almost out.” I replied with “It still looks dark to me.” Mr. Attitude said, “No, I said ALMOST.” :-P

Middle of the night conversations

Monday, 10. February 2014 10:44

Around 3 a.m. this morning, Alex calls for me and I answered him through the monitor.

Alex – “Did you know that sometimes I like to sleep with my animals, and sometimes I don’t, and sometimes I only want to sleep with Nemo, my shark and Elmo?”
Me – “Yes. And tonight you have your shark and Nemo.”
A – “And Elmo.”
M – “Right, and Elmo. Close your eyes and go back to sleep.”
A – “Why aren’t you laying on the pillow?” (Note – I had put a small pillow in there last night so there was room for my head when he was falling asleep, so that’s what he is talking about.)
M – “Because I am sleeping in my own bed.”
A – “Can you come lay with me?”
M – “No, I’m too tired. I am not getting out of bed.”
A – “Okay. Can you move your pillow out of my bed then?”
M – “No, but you can.”
A – “Okay.”

And he falls back asleep.  So random!

Bathroom eavesdropping

Saturday, 8. February 2014 11:26

Alex (in bath tub): What are you doing,  Daddy?
Ryan: Shaving
A: Are you shaving your beard off?
R: Do you want me to?
A: No!
R: Can I trim it?
A: Yes, and then it will grow back.

I’m glad Alex is on my side!

Baby size

Me: “Alex, the baby is the size of a cucumber now.”
Alex: “No Mommy, she’s a flower.”

Falling asleep tonight:  “now let’s talk about this. When I am a daddy, what will Daddy be?”

Having a cough while pregnant is horrible. This is the second time. It’s so frustrating!

Alex needed privacy today and locked himself in the bathroom.

Ryan finished the Christmas card today. It might be a record for our earliest completion date!

Alex has been making up his own language lately. It’s kinda annoying because “ca-ca” is his favorite and it sounds like a bad word.

I love that Alex whispers to my stomach “I’m your big brother.” <3
