Somehow we are to the end of March …. I feel like I haven’t had much “time” lately. It’s really been that way for four years … but with the weather warming up, staying lighter outside later and Caden getting older, it’s harder to get him to bed and asleep by 8:00, which means less “alone” time for me. I’m behind in blog land …. posting and reading. Hopefully I will get caught up with everyone soon!
Here’s a little of what we’ve been up to …. I’m really not sure what the tongue thing is all about …. I guess a new form of concentration?! Caden LOVES cantaloupe! If I let him, I think he could eat a whole cantaloupe in one sitting.
He insisted on putting his golf clubs in his car (so we tied them on). Guess he’s been observing Dad a little too much.The Lightening McQueen car …. oh the Lightening McQueen car. How I cannot WAIT for the fascination of this thing to wear off. He loves it! Loves it to the point it’s a fight to get him to go anywhere after work/childcare. He can’t get home fast enough to drive his car. YES … driving with no hands on the steering wheel. He thinks it is hilarious. Ian our neighbor boy, who is one day older then Caden, has a tractor (same concept as the car). The boys have been having lots of fun racing around Ian’s cul-de-sac. They’ve had some close calls …. but no crashes into one another yet.
We went to Bellevue this weekend. Friday night we stayed at the Westin …. ate at our favorite restaurants and got in some retail therapy! ….. We had to get in some fun, since Saturday night we had a sleep study (uck!). Yep, a sleep study! This was Caden’s fourth sleep study in three years …. and he rocked it! We wont have the results for a few days. But as far as tolerating the wires etc, he was a superstar! After we checked in to the “wire doctor” he had fun exploring the room, but once the newness of the room wore off he was ready to “lets get out of here Mom and go to Uncle Scot’s” (Dan stayed at Uncle Scot’s).
I let the tech know that Caden was starting to have some anxiety about the whole “wire” thing. If we could get the process rolling that would be great. So the tech got started, he was good with Caden, answered Caden’s 500 questions about what each wire or piece of tape, gauze, paste etc was for. and listened to Caden tell the story about “now I am four ….” I really do not know how kids sleep with all of that crap on. But somehow, they do. Caden slept through the night … and the tech didn’t have to come in once to adjust anything (that rarely happens!) I on the other hand … ya, very little sleep. That pull out chair for the parents is junk!
Hoping for good results from the study!
Have a great week!
