Dennie Kids: July 28, 2010

Highlights from today: (click here for pictures)

  • Campbell waking up early-she likes to drink her milk in Mom’s bed and then sit up, wave and say hi to Mom as she tries to continue snoozing
  • Yogurt for breakfast for everyone except Reagan.  The boys love yogurt and each had 2 containers.  Mom felt silly yesterday when she bought 9 boxes of yogurt but now that they have eaten 3 of those boxes, she doesn’t feel as silly
  • Nonna coming over bright and early to play with Reagan, Anderson and Campbell while Mom and Graham went to the Nutrition Center.  Anderson just wanted to make sure that he didn’t have to put on his real clothes
  • Reagan, Anderson and Nonna busying themselves by playing “flower, flower, butterfly” (the duck, duck, goose version from Lilly’s b-day party). 
  • Meanwhile, at the Nutrition Center, Graham was being a perfect angel.  He weighs 31 pounds and is 35 inches.  Mom was surprised by all he knew during the psych testing-he did everything she asked and worked for a very long time stringing beads (Mom was very impressed)
  • Brain lab went just as well.  Mom tried to give him candy but he just sat there with a stoic look on his face holding his candy.  Mom did say, “I am going to do my work” and then bent down to grab her paperwork.  Graham thought she was going to leave and started to fall apart.  The only thing he wouldn’t do was lay still for the bone scan (Mom doesn’t blame him)
  • Campbell enjoying time with Nonna-she had a bottle or two and even had lunch.  Nonna even stayed long enough for Mom to run a little on the treadmill.  Mom couldn’t believe how perfect the kids were while she was running-usually they need lots of help while she is running
  • Nap times for everyone but Reagan didn’t go to sleep again.  Mom is starting to fear that her naptimes are over.  Anderson did wake up about the same time Mom let Reagan up so they played with their Mr. Potato Heads.  They played with them most of the afternoon
  • Anderson and Reagan playing outside and eventually playing with the hose while in their underwear.  Graham was more than happy to join him when he woke up.  Campbell just sat by the door inside and waved at everyone.
  • Supper at home and then working on our letter E.  Followed by more playing…the kids have played so very well all afternoon long…and the tv hasn’t been on at all.  Is it a coincidence?  We will have to see.
