Too Much Change

Alden 

Hello there - there is so much going on at our house that we can barely keep up with it.  The day before Trent was born I graduated from Miss Kelly's Young 2's Preschool. I needed that educational background to help me cope with all this craziness!

I'm not sure how I feel about being a big bro yet. It has been great having more of Dad's attention, but I'm frustrated that Mom doesn't have a lot of time for me now. I'm struggling with expressing my feelings to her. I've told her she could go back to work or go hide. Maybe then things would be more normal! Sometimes I push her away to test her; I need to know she still loves me.

Trent doesn't do much, but at least he is harmless so far. I like to touch his head.


One of our neighbors, Cannon, cuts our lawn. I think he's pretty old, like 16 or something. He always takes his shirt off when he is mowing, so now when I cut the lawn, I know I need to take off my shirt too, just like Cannon.

I asked to be moved into a big boy bed. Today Dad went and got me a mattress. I also told Dad he could take down my crib. That was fun because I got to help Dad with the screwdriver. Hah-hah --- there's nothing like a preschooler transitioning into a big boy bed and a newborn in the house to cause sleep deprivation for the parents!

Trent

I'm too tired to write much today. I am too busy eating and growing. I weighed 8 lb 15 oz at birth and 4 days later I was already up to 9 lb 4 oz. I picked up an eye infection at the hospital so now Mom and Dad are torturing me with eye drops four times a day. I just want to be left alone!

One thing I hate is when I want to eat and Mom insists on changing my diaper first!

On Wednesday Mom and Dad took me to some lady's house for pictures. The lady does Pilates at  the same place Mom goes. It was really nice there. It was warm and she played lots of white noise. It was like going to a spa. Then they had Alden come and take some pictures with me. I feel like a celebrity!

Bog Breath

Last week my pumpkin project book was due. I had to do a book report and make a pumpkin look like a character from the book. I chose "Dog Breath." It is about a dog with really stinky breath. They almost got rid of the dog, but she became a hero. She saved her family from some bad guys.

We had an open house on Friday so parents could come see our projects.

Dog Breath

I really like Nerf. I got to pick out one at Target this weekend for a belated birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy.

I typically cry at hair cuts or demand to wear googles, but tonight I was ok. I didn't cry.

Mommy and I got my pumpkin book project done tonight. I had to make a pumpkin look like a character in a book. We rocked the glue gun. We made the dog's bad breath out of stuffing Betty had pulled out of her dog bed. Creative!

Feeling Corny

On Saturday, Mommy and Trent took a Day of the Dead art class. They learned about the holiday and got to decorate their own skulls.

On Sunday we went to our first dog birthday. Bella across the street turned 4, so she had a park doggie playdate. Lucky her- we haven't done anything for Betty turning one yet.

We also went to our first pumpkin patch of the season.
