project 365: week 41
January 6, 2010: Gram bought Bennet this lion chair to sit in when he watches TV. He's been sitting in it a lot, and I wanted to take a picture to e-mail to my mom at work to show her how much he liked it. Unfortunately, I could not get him to smile. He was watching a particularly tense "Barney" where the Winkster stole the Barney Bag and Barney and the kids were trying to get it back. I guess it's hard to smile when the Barney Bag has been stolen!
January 7, 2010: I bought Bennet drinkable yogurts at the grocery store this week. He loves them. I'd love them if he'd leave the straw in the container and not make such a mess!
January 8, 2010: I tried to get a picture of Bennet coloring. He clearly did not feel up for a photo.
January 9, 2010: Bennet loves nothing more than to climb all over me on the couch. He doesn't do it to Andrew, only to me. He's a big kid, so sometimes he really hurts me! Andrew has instituted "Mommy Time Outs" where he sits between Bennet and I on the couch and won't let Bennet climb on me. It's very sad. He cries and says, "I want Momma." It's nice to get a break from the abuse, though!
January 10, 2010: When I got Bennet up from his nap this afternoon, he had stuck his hand in his diaper and rubbed poop all over his onesie. Then, when I was trying to clean him off, he looked at me with the most cross little expression on his face and said, "Momma, I want juice. Momma, I want snack." I brought him downstairs dressed in this crazy outfit and told Andrew, "I dressed Bennet in this ridiculous outfit because he is being ridiculous."
January 11, 2010: Andrew only gets to see Bennet in the evenings for about an hour and a half until he has to go to bed. They usually spend that time playing together. This night, it was Mega Blocks.
January 12, 2010: I love my red maternity coat. Last time I was pregnant, I bought gloves and a headband to wear with it. I had completely forgotten about the headband and gloves until I unpacked my coat, and I was so excited to wear them again. Unfortunately, living with a toddler often results in things disappearing. My black headband had been lost for a few weeks and I had searched the house over for it. I finally found it yesterday stuffed under the storage trunk we keep in our living room. It made my day!
