but I miss grocery shopping. I spent half a day Sunday cutting out coupons from that day's paper and ones that my grandmother had been saving up for me. My coupon organizer is full and I am anxious to use them. Our new house is very convenient to both a Kroger and a Tom Thumb, which wasn't the case in my last house. I am super-excited about that...how sad am I? Hopefully within about a week's time I will be able to do the grocery shopping I have been missing for going on 6 weeks.
On other news, we are on night 3 of no pacifier...it hasn't been nearly as hard as I was expecting. He takes his naps at Nikia's house without it...he asks for it, but she tells him he doesn't need it and he goes to sleep. Last night he cried for a pretty long time, though. Chris went in there to soothe him and ended up falling asleep before Logan did (go figure) but he did fall asleep eventually. Tonight he cried off and on for about 20 minutes, but now it is silent...so I assume he's asleep. Last time I did that, though, he was in there reaching through his crib rails to the nightstand next to the crib and pulling out everything from the little drawer and having a grand old time. But that is now out of his reach so I think we are good.
I picked him up after school today and told him we were going to the park. He got so excited. We can't drive by a park without him yelling "Park!" On the way to the park we were going through all his animal sounds...he cracks me up with his noises. He knows monkey (of course), snake, lion, bear, dinosaur (they all roar about the same), dog, frog, rabbit (boing, boing), cat, cow, bird (cheep, cheep), mouse (squeak, squeak). Some days there are more, some days there are less. We were laughing like crazy. Anyway, we went to the park and he is all over the place. Every day it looks like he is getting so much bigger and I can't believe it's been 2 years. I told Chris tonight that I need another one so Logan is not so spoiled. It seems like he is all I talk about or think about and that can't be good for a kid, right? Although right now he is going to an extremely clingy-to-Daddy phase and Chris is loving it. He doesn't want to ride with me in the mornings, only Daddy. Tonight we were all laying on the couch and I leaned in to kiss him and he pushed me away and said "move." Wow...that was harsh. And Chris was grinning from ear to ear. Nice. Whatever, I'll take it when I can get it. I'm going out tomorrow night so they can have "their" time. Random post, I know, and Chris just came and laughed at me because I am blogging. He said I am "such a mom." That pretty much sums up my life.
