So I Don't Forget...

I keep putting off posting, because I haven't "felt like it", but a few things have been said and done in the last couple of days that I'm afraid I'll forget if I don't just go ahead and do it. =) And by the way, more February pictures to come in the next day or two.

The other day I called Asher my precious boy, and he said, "Precious Mommy." I LOVED it! =) Or I'll say, "Asher Case", and he'll say, "Mommy Case". Or "Hey my little munchkin man." "Hey Munchkin Mommy." Funny, funny.

Last night he was on a roll getting Ainsley to LAUGH! It was hilarious! She just doesn't really LAUGH that much, and he was getting her good! It was so fun!

Iasked him what he wanted for lunch the other day, he sighed, shrugged his shoulders, and said, "Just nuffin'." I said, "Are you ready to go to sleep?" And he said, "Yeah." "Just nuffin'" - I love it. =)

He had so much fun playing outside the other day. He played with playdough on his table. He sang me songs - like "The Mommy Song" as he called it. It went something like this: "Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, Mommy..." I loved "The Mommy Song". He's also been pretending more and more, and that day he had picked up a couple of sticks, and he said, "These are my drumsticks...and this is my room (pointing to the outdoors in general)."

Speaking of playdough...That same day was the first time I had ever let him play with playdough. Did I blog about that yet? He really liked it! He played with it three or four times in that same day. And when I played with him and made this or that, he would say, "Wow! Good job Mommy!" Nothing like the praise of your little two year old! =)

Which reminds me of what every Mommy wants to hear. I was in the kitchen cooking or something (probably something that is comparable to corn dogs), and he said, "Wow Mommy! That's AMAZING!" I love his simplicity and his heart!

Which brings me to this morning...He BIT Ainsley! So maybe his heart is not always so sweet! It was terrible...for both of them! He buried his two front teeth into her forehead. She wailed. And soon he did too! I think he felt terrible that he did that to her, AND he got in BIG trouble! It was sad, but it actually turned into kind of a comical moment. When he bit her, I was in the middle of changing her diaper, but I had to snatch him up so he wouldn't do it anymore and to discipline him. She's screaming on the couch, he crying his eyes out in my lap, I realize that she has no diaper on, but she needs to be picked up too. So I got her diaper on, while still holding Asher, because he did NOT want to let me go. He was actually being really sweet with me and was so sorry that he had done that. Then I picked her up too. He fell asleep on my shoulder while she was calming down and wanting to go to sleep too. And by the time Beau got home for lunch (maybe five minutes later), they were both asleep in my arms. It was pretty funny...and frazzling (which is what most of this morning was...frazzling)! =)

Which is why I need FlyLady! =) If you've never gone to, you should! She's going to help me live a clean and decluttered life. =) I'm even meeting Amy and her friend Amanda in Oklahoma City on Saturday for a conference that she's speaking at. We can't wait!

Oh! One other piece of significant news! Ainsley is cutting her first tooth! Her bottom right tooth is starting to break through, and she's been a bit fussy to prove it. =) Tylenol (or acetaminophen as Asher calls it =)) and Orajel are becoming our close companions once more!

That's all I've got for the moment. I hope you all had a good weekend!

And by the way...if you read my blog, chances are I read yours too. If you wouldn't mind me listing your blog as one I read on the side of my page, would you please leave me a comment telling me that it's ok - or you can email me at It's nice to have the blogs I read in that list, because it tells me who has updated without having to go to your blog to check. But I don't want to do that without your consent. If you mind, it's no big deal. To each his own. Just thought I would ask.

Have a good week!

This is the kind of post that fills that "needing-to-know-exactly-how/what-your-grandkids-are-up-to" place in this Gibbie's heart. Asher is sooo darn funny and I hope the teeth marks in Ainsley's head have faded away by now. Doggoneit! That little guy was just not thinking was he? I bet his heart was just breaking at the realization that he had truly hurt his baby sister.Amazing that that tiny newborn Ainsley can possibly be old enough to have a tooth, roll over, kind of sit up, and laughs out loud. Just think, this time next year, we'll be saying that about Jacob Allan.

The dents are gone, but the little red marks are still there. Asher woke up from his nap VERY sad and concerned and wanted to say, "Sorry Ainsley" again. It was sweet and very sad. I reassured him that she is ok now and that he already said that he was sorry, and she forgives him. He's ok now. And she's just playing away. =)

I love your kids!

Awwww!! He is so sweet!! I love all the little things he says!

I know you were upset at him for biting her, but getting them to both fall asleep in your arms...that had to be a really cool mommy moment.

Oh, AND....I LOVE flylady. I've been doing her stuff for about 3 years now. She has saved my sanity and made my organizational skills much better than they used to be. It's funny how when you start following her routines for a while it is just part of life and you don't even realize it. She has quote that I love..."housework done incorrectly still blesses the family." My motto!
