1. We're having our first night out since our anniversary in July - without the babies - and going to see Brian Regan at the Paramount in Seattle with Tom's brother Chris and his girlfriend Jackie. Sooooooo excited!
Bribery? Maybe. I prefer to think of it as incentive for good behavior at the grocery store.
3. Clare's elbow popped out of joint this week. Apparently "nursemaid's elbow" is very common...so one quick trip to the pediatrician and she was right as rain. And now I know how to fix it in the future.
Our neighbors' son outgrew this little swing, so they gave it it us! Both Clare and James love it.
5. Tom has been staying late at work every day this week to watch lectures for school. While we really appreciate him working SO hard, we miss him like crazy. I need to do a better job at keeping a positive attitude about him getting his Master's - focusing on the end goal instead of the evenings that we're missing him.
6. Tom's dad (Tim) had his hip replaced this morning. Everything went well and he's recovering, but will be in the hospital until Monday or Tuesday. Prayers for his speedy recovery are much appreciated!
I never get tired of all the goofy positions in which Clare decides that she needs to sleep. No idea why the raincoat made an appearance for nap time, but apparently it was very important.
