Wednesday Wanderings

1. I decided to practice using manual focus on my camera, and have realized that my kids on the swings was probably not the best choice for my first practice . I think I'll just try it on a tree or something next time. Or just continue with auto focus, I don't know.

2. Madeline has disovered that she can:

reach the top shelf of the refrigerator,

swing herself,

and fly.


3. My little man is having some serious teething issues. His eye teeth, those boogers. I have to say that Madeline NEVER bit me. Ever. Well, she would if I put my finger in her mouth, but I can't blame her for that. Maison has a couple of times when other teeth have been on their way in, but right now he's OUT OF CONTROL. He came up and chomped down on my back when I was sitting on the floor and, by reflex, my elbow swung back and knocked him down. He cried, of course. I felt bad, but I thought at least he had to have learned his lesson. Later, he walked up while I was making dinner and chomped down on my thigh. Again, my reflexes took over and my knee swung up and knocked him down. Poor thing. Now I keep my eyes open for him heading toward me with his teeth bared so I can dodge the bite. I gave him a popsicle to see if it'd help. It did, for about 3 minutes.



4. Disneyland and San Diego in 2 weeks. Heeyah!

5. Our neighborhood. It's causing me GREAT, HUGE, HORRIBLE pains with my allergies lately. I know, wah, wah, wah. But, anyways. We have a lot of people who walk in our neighborhood. At our last house we also had a lot of people who walked in our neighborhood. The difference is that the people I see now aren't walking to GO anywhere. They aren't walking to the bus stop, or to school, or to the store. They're just walking to walk. It makes a big difference.

6. I keep going shopping for Maison because he doesn't have many warm weather clothes, but I keep coming home with stuff for Madeline instead, who REALLY doesn't need any more clothes. Girl stuff is just so much cuter.

7. I'm going to bed now. Goodnight.

I hear you on the biting as M was, too. With her, it was short lived though. She hasn't bitten since probably 17 or 18 months. It's just their instict to bite I think. He is loosing his "baby" look. So handsome!
Allergies...ugh! Not wah wah wah. They can make you so completely miserable and it's not something that goes away at some point, like a cold. It can last months and months and months. I know, not what you want to hear. Break down and see an allergist. Just someone telling me I was not a hypocondriact (sp?) gave me the right to complain.=)
Madeline is so beautiful. and yes, girls are so much funner to buy for!
