Enough Snow

Haven't we seen enough snow already? I love snow and all but I am ready for Spring. For those of you who are skiers or snow boarders are loving it, I am not. It is no fun carrying a baby in the snow all the time. Yes, we had our fun time in the snow. But now, Please stop snowing!These are my boys taking a long needed nap since both of them are sick and me being the mommy can't be sick takes care of them.
Lex is getting so smart and loves playing with me. In the last week or so he has learned to give high 5's. Put his hands up in the air and shake his fists. He is getting to be so hilarious. I love it.
He also does some things that aren't so funny to me. Getting intot eh fridge is one. He stands up and manages to close himself int he fridge and then gets mad. He also gets into any trash that happens to be out. uurrrgggg.
Lex is such a climber. Anything he can climb onto or up to he does. He especially loves to climb over people or he might just sit on you.

Dancing, Dancing!

Lex is really getting use to his body and how it moves. He loves to dance whenever any type of music is on. In this video Lex has 2 or 3 different toys on. He definitely is a multi-tasker despite his gender, if you know what I am talking about. The other night he was at my moms house and he changed the tv to one of those high numbers like 947 and it was playing MC Hammer u can't touch this. He stood up and starting shaking his hips from side to side. I wish I had my camera. He was so hilarious. I love that he dances. He doesn't get it from me. Ben is so the better dancer in our relationship. I know, what happened to my latina blood?????

Water Aerobics

Last week, I got my butt into gear and I started water aerobics. I had a few misconceptions though. I thought that only elderly people did it. I didn't really think it gave you much of a work out. To my surprise, these thoughts were not true. The people that go are of all ages. It is a hell of a work out if you do it right.
I decided I really needed to start doing exercises and since my back hurts, the water would be a perfect place to start. I joined the rec center and I go 3 times a week. Anyone who wants to join, I recommend it highly. I am sore in all the right places. My back still hurts, but it is a good place for me to start to get myself back into shape.

What have I been up to?

This is Lex eating his favorite food or one of his favorites, graham crackers.
Again, Lex eating. If you look carefully, you can see his many teeth coming in. His 2 front teeth are on the way and he has been such a momma's boy. He has been so clingy. I love and hate it at the same time.
Like father like son. Lex loves all the same things his dad does. He always gets into his stuff, cd's, mice, games. Oh, he especially loves to play with Ben's printer.

This is Lex in the morning, watching the Backyardigans upside down. He paused a moment to look at the camera for a picture.
Wherever Lex goes you will know. He is the "Destructor". He pulls open drawers, opens cabinets, you name it. He loves to make messes. I chase him all day and clean up after him. His favorite place to play, I know it is disgusting is the bathroom. His favorite thing in there is the toilet paper, then opening the cabinets and pulling all the towels out, then pulling all my toiletries out, like pads, tampons, hair stuff. I need a new place to store all these items. It has been fun but I have to watch him like a hawk.
He likes to play with outlets. Yes, my house is child-proof and I have the plug things, so no worries. He is just so much work. It is fun to watch him to see what damage he can do. So this is what I have been doing. I would blog at night but Ben has started school again and it is "his" computer. Naps I guess are my best bet.

Happy New Year!

We started the New Year's party early on Sunday afternoon. For Preston and Julian's birthday party. Aren't they so cute?

On New Year's Eve Rach and I decided to go to Ikea. It was a good trip and I got some things that I really needed. I got a cool hamper for Lex's room and a spaghetti noodle holder. We even rang in the New Year with the Swedish. We even counted down. This is the only New Year taht Lex was able to stay up for. It was 5 pm our time. Yeah, Lex!! The bad part of the trip is that Lex had an explosion up his diaper and down. This was probably one of the few times I did not bring an extra pair of clothes for him. I go into the bathroom to change him and I mean it was everywhere. I had to have Rachel help me. She was about to throw up she said it smelled so bad. She stayed and help so I am thankful. Lex is not the easiest to let change his diaper he tries to wiggle his way out of it.................

This is what he had left on after the poop diaper. He was cute right??? He did have his jean jacket on and I covered his legs with his blanket so he wasn't so cold. Oh well. live and learn right?
Since Lex goes to bed before 9pm, We had decided we just wouldn't stay up and just go to bed. Well, that did not happen. We stayed up until 3am. I woke up the next morning at 6:30am to feed Lex. I was so tired and still am a bit. I know it was harder on Ben than me. Moms are good at staying awake and being restless and still managing somehow to function. We had a lot of fun playing games. The favorite of the night was scum. We are addicted, well I am. I will be PRESIDENT!
