Funny Kids

I've just got to share the very funny thing that Beth did the other night. We were over at Grandma and Grandpa Owen's house and Beth was playing with Grandpa. He was flying her around and of course she kept wanting to do it over and over. So when Grandpa wanted a break, he told her he was "pooped" and needed a rest. So Beth promptly walks over to him and says "I gotta check your bum" walked behind him and sniffed! Then she walked around and says, "you okay." It was SO funny! We laughed until we almost cried. Obviously she has not learned the meaning of the phrase "pooped." So funny...only a little kid would think to do something like that.

Also, I have to say that Sleep is a really beautiful thing. James has been having a really hard time sleeping for the last couple of weeks. We've been so spoiled by him for most of his life that its really hard to go back to waking up a lot at night. I haven't really been able to pinpoint what the problem is either, which makes me crazy. We thought maybe an ear infection, but that didn't seem to be it. We thought maybe teething again, but that doesn't seem to be it either. It must be all the excitement of the last couple weeks, and the fact that he has mastered crawling and sitting up from any position so he thinks if he wakes up he's got to sit up and call for us. We have been trying not to pick him up so he'll learn to sleep again. Last night he slept through the night again, so hopefully that means he's retrained...but I'm not holding my breath just yet. But man, a full night of sleep last night was amazing! But I really can't wait to have my sleeping baby back! Luckily Beth has still been her great sleeping self. She's been going to bed pretty late the last little while cause of all the parties and such, but she makes up for it by sleeping in, so it all works out. I know a lot of you think I shouldn't be complaining, but its hard when you are used to sleep again! Anyway...
