Diaper stories

Two days ago, when I woke up on Monday morning, I heard some muffled noises coming from Aliah's room, so I went to check on her. I found her laying in her crib with her legs sticking straight up in the air (typical), and she was COMPLETELY NAKED! I had changed her in the middle of the night, and not bothered to her pants back on. BAD IDEA! She had somehow managed to get her shirt off too, and she was actually CHEWING ON HER DIAPER! Needless to say, she will not be wearing velcro-close diapers at nighttime anymore!!!

Mike's reaction: "You have got to write that one in her baby book!"

Speaking of nighttime and diapers: it's been one month since Hannah started wearing underwear to bed. She is still having an accident at night about once a week - but I shouldn't complain, because that's a whole lot better than multiple times a night! Whenever Aliah wakes me up in the middle of the night (which is usually once or twice per night), I will make Hannah use the bathroom, but half the time she doesn't even have to pee.
More news on Hannah: She is getting so much closer to reading on her own! She can sound out the letters, but she still sometimes has a difficult time putting them all together in the right way. She does have some words memorized, like "the", "stop", "and", "mom" and "dad".

I am taking bets on how much Aliah will weigh at her nine-month-old check-up next week. Any guesses? I think she will be really close to 21 lbs. Maybe 20 1/2 pounds.

We are visiting my family in Maryland for the next six days.
We arrived yesterday evening. Hannah is really bummed that it is too cold to swim today. She was very much looking forward to swimming in Yoma's pool one more time. This weekend we are having a big party/family reunion for my Dad's 50th birthday. My brother,aunt and uncle are flying in from LA right now, as I write this. It should be interesting!

Ah, parenthood! Am I crazy for actually looking forward to hilarious stories like that??

Sounds like Hannah is making good progress and I'm sure the accidents will stop altogether soon.

I remember when I was about 4-5, I used to make my dad read me stories over and over until I had them memorized and could recite them on the spot. I wish I had that memory now, it seems to be dwindling the older I get....

LOL Yup, definitely one for the baby book! :D

Hooray for Hannah's accidents dwindling! Definitely hope it means they will stop soon.

Hahaha, too cute. I love to hear these stories. Sometimes I think it's more fun to live vicariously through moms than actually have to go through some of the stuff that's funny sometime down the road, but not at the time it happens. This story was a pretty cute one and I agree with Mike... write it down in the baby book.

I hope you have a fun weekend with your family this weekend!

How are you guys doing financially these days? Are things smoothing out at all? I'm praying for you today!

Love, Lisa
