 2011 February

  • "Oh boy, peas and spinach!" exclaims PJ upon examining his dinner plate which featured, among other items, peas and spinach.

  • "Mama, are you putting your boobs in?" asks PJ while Mama was putting in her breast pads.

  • "Dada, are you still sick?  Yes or No?"

  •  "Blowing bubbles is more fun than dancing."

  • This month it snowed up at the Tilden Steam Trains.  I know because PJ and I drove through it on the way to pick up Lau Lau from the airport.

  •  PJ gets a bath every other day.  On non-bath days, he often protests mightily when I nominate a time to scrub his face, hands, feet and privates with a washcloth.  On one particular day, he was especially fussy so, while sitting on the floor with him corralled in my lap, I held both of his hands/arms with my left hand while I washed his face with my other hand.  During the entire face washing he thrashed around and whined and continued to do so after I finished.  In a stroke of genius (insanity), I started washing his face again, and told him I would only stop after he calmed down and said he was sorry.  Amazingly if worked, and he even cooperated with the rest of his washing, under the threatening cloud of more washcloth on the face.

  • Prior to E-Lings arrival, Em and I generally split PJ's night time ritual of bath and reading by alternating nights.  With the new arrival, I have taken charge every night, including sleeping in PJ's room, and, somewhat confusingly, this change has been my favourite "thing" about our new arrival.   Specifically, I really look forward the time PJ and I will spend together during his bath, getting on "jams", reading books in the "big cribber", playing with the light, and finally singing "Yaka Mika" when he's tucked in around 8 pm.  Around 10 pm, I come back into the room to sleep myself, and feel intense contentment to hear him peacefully and soundly snoring away.  Perhaps the best time though, is the morning, when PJ comes out of the "cribber" and joins me in the "big cribber", where we snuggle under the blankets while he drinks his "chocolate nook ni-ni".
