Patrick’s New Toy

Patrick hasn’t shown a lot of interest in toys yet, and I’m not surprised or worried about that – he’s still very young and quite content to play with his own hands.  But Grandma and Grandpa Plomin sent a toy for Easter he’s grown especially fond of.  It’s a cartoon character sea horse (I don’t know what show) that lights up and plays music like a glow worm.  Yesterday he fell asleep with it.  It’s pretty sensitive so if he moves around he can turn it on himself.  I’ll put it in his swing with him and he just sits and listens/watches with a look of contentedness awe.  I caught him cuddling with it this morning:

Well Karol is undoubtedly my daughter.  I did her hair this morning and like we usually do, I said “Oo, look at Karol’s pretty hair!” and Matt says “Ooo, so pretty!!”  Today, though, Karol’s reaction was especially narcissistic – she had a huge grin on her face that said ‘I know I’m gorgeous!’  I wish I’d captured her crunched-up nose toothy grin, but I did get a few ham shots.  In one of these she looks like she’s upset – don’t let that fool you – she was totally playing it up for the camera.  You can tell by the way she’s laughing in all the other pics!

The Family Bed

So this morning Matt had to be in downtown DC by 8 am.  We normally leave around then, so I told him to have fun taking the train!  I was extra tired because we went to bed late last night – we’re still boxing stuff up for tomorrow – and so when Patrick woke me up at 4:47 am, I was not really ready to move. I got him settled back to sleep and thought, I should just stay up and get some work done…What am I saying?  I only went to bed 4 hours ago!  So I curled back up with Matt, who, by the way, totally slept through Patrick’s little episode.  

At 5:42, Patty-poo stirred again.  He’s  way into sleeping and gets so frustrated when his little hands wake him up!  He refuses to even open his eyes, just struggles to go back to sleep.  This time I again thought I should get up; after all, my alarm was going to start at 6, but instead I just brought Patrick to bed with me (he’s been doing very well in his pack ‘n’ play recently though).

As Patrick and I snuggled up, I realized that Patrick wasn’t trying to wake me up.  He remembered Daddy had to leave early today!  So I woke Matt up and said something like ‘hey you should hop in the shower now, you have to leave early.’  He didn’t quite hop out of bed just then, though.  

Lucky for him, Karol woke up just after 6 and Matt went to go check on her.  She wasn’t ready to wake up (thank God) and so he brought her to bed too!  So the whole family of 4 was cozied up in bed together.  As soon as she was out again, Matt got up the will to go get ready, but I didn’t.  I decided since I wasn’t responsible for Matt getting in on time, we were going to sleep in!  And we did.  Matt did get out on time, I think, but not before snapping this photo:

The rest of us rolled out of bed around 7:45 and got out the door around 8:30 (not too terribly late, actually).  Sure, I was a little late to work, but no one noticed/cared.  The whole office is late and usually I’m actually there 1/2 hour before we’re open for business.  I figure being a punctuality rock star 80% of the time makes up for a day here and there of taking it slow.  

But after TOMORROW we will have a whole extra hour in the morning since our commute is gone!  We Matt is moving the vast majority of our stuff tomorrow in a U-Haul and then we’ll officially be Virginians!  We have the Silver Spring apartment until the end of the month, so we have plenty of time to clean and get the little things to the new place.  I CAN’T WAIT!!!
