monday, breakfasts and hand mixers

We had a laid-back Monday.

Ford slept really, really well Sunday night. I hope we can transition him to his crib soon. We'll see. AWA woke up in the middle of the night crying. She's done that a couple times over the last few weeks. Thankfully, Mat was able to be Father of the Year and get her right back to sleep!!

Ama-Watts loves to pretend to go "night night" on the daybed in our sunroom. Sometimes, I won't be able to find her at home, and I'll find her in the sunroom on the bed. Crazy girl!

Mat stayed home from work a little Monday morning, because he's been working so much on the weekends lately. It was so nice to have him home this morning! We have both become something we'd never thought we'd be-- breakfast people. Every morning, Mat scrambles eggs and he has fruit while I have oatmeal. We've also started eating turkey bacon, too. Yum! (We are on a diet/workout plan with Willmore Training [www.willmoretraining.com]. Jon and his wife Stephanie are so great, and they keep us moving and on our toes six days a week. Mat's parents are on the plan with us, also. We've made it into a little competition of sorts...to make it fun. :) )

It's safe to say that AWA is always cracking me up with her choice of toys. Yesterday, she wanted to play with my pink hand mixer. I was happy to oblige. She also loves playing with my dish towels, our guacamole bowl, lids to pots and pans and her wet washcloths. Who knows what's going on in that little head?!

We've also had to start disciplining Ama-Watts more frequently lately. It breaks my heart, but Mat and I know that it's for her best. We always stay close to her when we've just disciplined her so that we can comfort her and tell her it's ok while calmly explaining that she must obey/not do ______/listen to Mommy and Daddy, etc. She's growing up, and growing up is hard!

After dinner, baths and baby bedtimes last night, Mat and I watched "Admission" with Tina Fey and Paul Rudd. I fell asleep (of course), so I don't know how it ended. I'm going to try to finish it today maybe.

Happy Tuesday, folks!
