Hoping for a quiet Tuesday.

Here is attempt number one at blogging today. Micah is happily playing in his play pen. Jamie is wandering around throwing a ball and Cody has been sent to bed. They had a late night last night and the night before, which has been very stressful for me because I am very uptight about things like that. However, this is the reason why. Cody is a bag today, even though he slept in until 7:30 this morning. Yes, that is a MAJOR sleep-in for him. I can only imagine how the rest of the day will go. I hope it is better than the first couple of hours. I am not mad at Cody. I actually feel sorry for him. He doesn't understand that the reason he is having a hard time making good choices today is because he is extremely overtired. Micah didn't have the greatest night last night either, though I suppose it was not bad compared to most babies his age. He ate at 10:30 p.m. and then woke up already at 12:30 a.m. to eat. I was discouraged that he didn't even last three hours. However, after that he did not wake up again until 7:30 a.m. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for myself. I was having nightmares and actually woke up yelling some time in the night. Where did that come from?!

I just looked at Jamie who dangled a blue Christmas tree ball from his fingers and then winged it into the air. It went in a graceful arc over his head and landed on the couch behind him. He has just gone over to the tree to fetch another blue ball. He is holding two now. They look like giant earrings. Jamie is obsessed with any type of ball. A few days ago I emerged from my room first thing in the morning and he was standing in the kitchen holding a large onion. He loudly proclaimed, "Ball!" and then proceeded to spike it on the floor like a triumphant football player. I couldn't help but smile, but I was also thankful it hadn't been an apple or it surely would have bruised. It turns out onions bruise too. Who knew? A few people pointed out to me that it was a good thing it hadn't been an egg. I never even thought of an egg. Neither of my boys have broken an egg yet. Cody cracks them for me when I am baking, but has never broken one so far.

Speaking of baking, I have a strong urge to do Christmas baking now that the snow has come in full force and our Christmas tree is up. (Yes, we put it up on Saturday with the boys.) I have not been able to yet because we have been out and because I want the kitchen more organized first. I did manage to make a brownie a few nights ago and it is in the freezer tempting me. Just wait til I make the sugar cookies. I'm sure there will be a post about it because it is a lot of work. It usually takes me three or four hours, and that's on the second day. The first day is making the dough, which is actually quite easy. I might do that tonight, depending on how everyone does here.

Anyway, I'm sure I'm missing a thousand good stories of Jamie's antics, but I must sign off for now. I will try to be more faithful to post in here this week!
