so much going on
theres been too much going on to keep up! today ak missed his nap and was a crankmonster. what keeps me going through it is the fact that on days like this he's gonna be in bed once his head hits the pillow, and ill have time to do something productive in the evening.
so theres alot going on. house stuff. school stuff. AK starts a new school come the fall semester and his last day at his current school is July 31. So that means no school for a month! which mean it will be full time AK!
So we have been trying to concentrate on things that we should do without AK like, dangerous sod cutting, fence staining, and other things that involve chemicals for heavy machinery.
for blogging short hand i will henceforth refer to baby m as MAK. pretty close to AK But with an M in front of it.
so mak has got her first bling from my dad and mom. i think it was my dads idea though.
check out the little bracelet.
i always am joking with T saying, "i scheduled an appointment to get maks ears pierced" and stuff like that. I see these pictures of baby girls with pierced earings and stuff and it makes me cringe. im talking infants here. most of these pics can be found at awkwardfamilyphotos.com
well maybe not, but you get the hint.
i took ak out on an outing to some nature preserve thingy with dinosaurs and ak told me to take a picture of him, and he posed. that was a first. here is the photo
yes thats a motorcycle shirt that i made for him.
luckily i had packed his swim shoes with me and he was able to traverse the waterfall. i was still very nervous as i knew the rocks were muy slippery.
mac is the cutest. she sleeps alot. AK has gotten really used to moving around her and gets better at respecting her space every day. initially ak hated it when mak cried but that was only for a day or two, now i am really surprised at how he just ignores it and will even tell her, "its ok to cry baby mak!" you can cry!"
hes so sweet. he loves to kiss her toes.
here are the latest ak'isms. i jot them down in my phone everytime i hear them now so as not to forget.
so one time were all eating at the dinner table and im going on and on about something and then i look at AK and say, "you know what im saying AK!" and he shares my enthusiasm as he responds with a resounding, "yeah!"
then after a moment, he looks at me and says, "what are you saying dad?"
one time MAk was sitting in her bouncy seat just kickin it, while were all eating dinner. of couse ak is naked as usual. and then after a while she starts to fuss, we all look at her from the dinner table and T asks her, "what is it honey? what are you trying to tell us? then AK asks her, "you wanna be naked!?"
when ak and i do bedtime i take a glass of water and i put it on his bedside table. he drinks it all during the night, and when he wakes up. one time i brought some juice for me. he kept on making excuses to get up just so he could get up and sneak a sip of my juice. by the end of it i said, "hey! quit drinking my juice buddy!" and he gets in my face and is all, "im a toddler! i drink juice. all the time!
he's two years old by the way.
