One on one time with you

Nolan,

Today I spent time again with just you while your sister was at her week long dance intensive.  I have to say you are my little buddy.  The other day we rode our bikes to Westgate, then on the trail on the other side of Lawerence.  You were so jacked about riding on the dirt.  I can’t tell you how that made my heart feel all warm to see you having so much fun.

And again today we went to the back parking lot of Trader Joes and rode up and down the little hill.  You were so into going down hill fast.  I was so afraid you were going to wreck, but you didn’t.

I love you my little guy.

Beach day in February!

70 degrees in February?  The rest of the country is digging out of heavy snow.  Yes, it’s nice to live in California.

Little Rascal

Rascal

The Rascal

Note, if you have an aversion to stories about toddler poop then read no more.

So this morning I wake up as usual to Nolan banging around in his room.  An improvement to what he used to do, that being screaming at the top of his lungs, notifying everyone in the neighborhood that he is awake.

I open Tulia’s door and the lights are on, and she is dressed.  Ok, nothing abnormal there.  I then open Nolan’s door. Lights are on, normal.  Nolan is laying in bed playing with a headlamp I got him for Christmas, no problem there.

Upon closer inspection he has no shirt on and his pj’s are on the ground.  I pull the cover’s back and he’s changed into some pull ups and pair of pants.  Great!  He’s learning to change himself out of his pj’s.  So I put a shirt on him and proceed to go to the kitchen to fix breakfast for them.  “Hmm, have to find the pee soaked diaper later…,” I thought.

As Nolan sits at the kitchen table, demanding cereal, he says, “I have poo poo, I change.”  “I wipe poo poo and put on pull up.”

“Wait, what?!?!? What did you do???”

“I change poo poo diaper”

I sigh and take a peek in his pull up.  No poop, rather remnants of dookie on his bottom.

“Oh crap.” I thought.  Where is that dirty diaper.

I walk back in his room and immediately notice that smell.  Crap, I thought maybe he just had gas this morning.

I end up finding the diaper in the diaper drawer of his dresser.  Poopie diaper and dirty wipes.  Blaaaahhhhh.

Oh the life of a parent…

Fishing at the boardwalk

My parents and the kids and I went to Santa Cruz for a spur of the moment fishing trip at the pier. It had been a while since i took Tulia fishing and I wanted to go somewhere that we would be sure to catch something other than a snag fish.

After Tulia pulled up the first fish, it promptly bled and convinced her that she didn’t want to catch anymore fish. We later had dinner on the pier.

Fremont older hike and hail

Took the family out for a short hike in Fremont older. The clouds appeared to be looming when we left home but the rain had not made an appearance so I thought we should be able to squeeze in a quick hike.

FAIL

The skies opened up and dumped and hailed on us. We scurried back after about 15 minutes.

Tulia had my p&s camera and found some interesting things to shoot.

Nolan Riding the Big Dummy

Went for a short ride on the dummy at Fremont Older.  Nolan seemed to like the bumps.

Poop face

Lately while feeding Nolan, he will feel the urge to relieve himself, #2.

He starts grunting and bearing down. He then gets the look of concentration and agony at the same time. Funniest thing ever.
