*So, it's finally dipped into the 40s overnight here. Which means it's about 62 degrees during the day. Ah! Finally! Jacket weather! Yay for jacket weather! Matt's actually sitting here in our house right now with a scarf on. We've become total wimps.
*Matt's work had layoffs today. We were NOT among the 40 people they laid off, thank goodness. Our hearts and prayers go out to those who did get laid off.
*Lucas had his 9 month well-child check yesterday. Can you believe it's been 9 months?! HOLY FREAKING MOLY! He has gained 14 ounces in the last 6 weeks. Which is twice what he had gained in the previous six weeks, but still less than they would like. My pediatrician agreed with the Endocrinologist that he's perfectly healthy! Yay!
*Abbie can officially ride a two-wheeler. Finally. She's almost 7. She probably would have learned sooner if I had had the patience. She now spends every day after school riding her bike up and back our little strip of sidewalk. Anna and Miles join her and they wear themselves completely out. This works to my advantage. They're in bed asleep by 7:30p.
*We had some good friends over today for bike riding/scooter scooting/roller skating. It led me to believe that we may have too many forms of locomotion. 3 bikes (2 with training wheels), 2 scooters (1 three wheeled), a tricycle, 2 pair of roller skates, and 3 "baby" cars. Why do I get the feeling that it's only going to get worse? I was kindof thinking about getting a bike myself.
(Totally not my kid. But the cutest thing ever that wasn't mine.)
*Poor Miles. It's not that he's clumsy necessarily. It's just that he's excited. He has skinned the same knee 3 times in as many days. And then yesterday it was the other knee. Good thing we're well stocked on Band-Aids.
*My kids are so cool.
