Our Life in Tweets

  • Friday was Ryan's last day of teaching for the year. Today he's cleaning, moving to a new classroom, and doing paperwork.
  • Molly had her first nap without a binky last week at my parents'. We were going to attempt to put her to bed without binky that night.
  • While putting Molly to bed without binky, she flung herself over the crib rail. I caught her. We then hurriedly converted the crib to a toddler bed. We let her have binky to not make too many changes to her world.
  • Molly had her first bout of food poisoning/stomach virus this weekend. She was a real trooper.
  • We have finalized travel plans to MI June 28 - July 6 to visit friends/family and attend my cousin Katie's wedding.
  • We have been house shopping and have been outbid by a couple hundred dollars on one house and a couple thousand on another.
  • We are looking for a 3 bedroom one-story and prefer flooring other than carpet/vinyl. A covered patio is also on our wish list.
  • Our tv stopped working last week, and we are not going to replace it until after we move. Ryan had a tough time facing reality this weekend when missing a golf tournament and the Belmont Stakes.
  • Ryan shaved his head completed bald with a razor. I think he looks hot.
  • My mom's birthday was Saturday, but we didn't celebrate with her yet due to Molly's illness.
  • We bought a zoo membership and are enjoying visiting the zoo while they open an hour early on Mondays in June just for members. We'll be leaving shortly for our visit.
  • Molly is saying all kinds of words. She can identify some colors, thanks to the M&Ms we give her when she uses the potty. She can also identify a couple letters.
  • The only number Molly knows is "two". But, she conceptually understands it. She'll hold up a couple binkies or stuffed puppies and say, "Two!"
  • I just finished the first novel I've read in awhile, Midwives by Chris Bohjalian. I really enjoyed it.
  • We have reserved a bunch of books at the library because Ryan reads a lot during the summer.
  • This is Ryan's only week off (after today and besides our week in MI) because he starts meeting with his cross country runners for summer training next week.

I love the post in "tweets". I am not a tweeter myself, but loved getting the update on what is happening with you guys - you are an entertaining writer! Good luck with the house hunting, have fun with Ryan home for the summer and like you, it has been eons since I actually read a book. :) Sounds like Molly is doing really well too - growing up, they do it too quickly, eh?
