Happy Friday! You know how Ashlyn had two shots yesterday? The nurse always puts these cute little round Snoopy band-aids over the shots on Ashlyn's thighs. Well this morning, Ashlyn noticed the band-aids for the first time and started grabbing at them. She managed to peel one off and was amused by they way they stuck to her hand and fingers. She kept trying to wave them off, but they just stuck to her hand. I turned away to grab a fresh diaper, and when I turned back around, she had the band-aid in her mouth! I was like, "NOOOOOOOOOO!" and she laughed loudly. I can see the bright round sticker stuck to the roof of her mouth. I tried sweeping the band-aid out with my finger, but Ashlyn didn't like having my finger in her mouth and struggled a bit, then...*gulp*...she swallowed it! ACK! Ashlyn sort of gagged on it a bit...her face got a little red and her eyes got all watery. I was prepared to use the choking manuever I learned in the Infant Safety/CPR class, but then Ashlyn swallowed hard, looked up, and smiled brightly. I was mortified! I sat there quietly wondering if I should call the doctor or something...and then I noticed Ashlyn peeling the other band-aid. I quickly grabbed it out of her hand and she got all pissy at me. *tsk-tsk* Well, I'm just glad she didn't REALLY choke on it. I guess now I'll just have to wait for the band-aid to show up in one of her poopy-diapers. =/
was a mellow day. This whole week I've been busy doing other things
and our house got kinda messy and cluttered. I have mail stacked up
on the coffee table, laundry piled up, a lot of stuff strewn around
the living room, and toys EVERYWHERE. The towels and sheets in the guest
room haven't been washed and the blankets Wil, Sarah, and Cin used need
to be folded and put away. So I spent the afternoon sweeping up the
kitchen, vacuuming the house, dropping in a load of laundry, and cleaning
up the living room. There is so much that needs to be done around the
house, but since returning from the trip, I've been feeling very unmotivated.
I need to call the painter tomorrow. Hopefully he'll be able to start
and Sue wanted to get together for dinner tonight. We don't see them
as often as we used to. We used to hang out EVERY night (no joke). But
since Ashlyn, I'm assuming they don't want to bother us. Plus now, they
hang out with their small group from church a lot (they're churchin'
don't know how the conversation changed from babies to cars...perhaps
it was because I said I like the conveniece and spaciousness of minivans
and hoped to get one someday, but everyone jumped on me for saying that.
They were all like, "Nah, you don't want a minivan. You want an
It took Ashlyn an hour to fall asleep. I was getting tired just watching her flip around in her crib. I got all excited when I thought I heard her snore, but soon realized that it was just Aric. HAHAHA! Okay...G'Nite! Have a great weekend!
