You thought you had a rough day...

The picture says it all ... Lydia is having a tough time adjusting to our new life. She hasn't been sleeping well at night for the last week and it shows in the morning. The challenge of going for a "stroller ride" (her term for pushing a stroller as well as riding in a stroller) on the uneven ground of our backyard was just too much for her today and she fell apart. There was "weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth" ... followed by a long nap. Upon awakening, all was right in the world, and Lydia was once again able to show her sweet smile that her mommy and daddy love.

The Joy of Pee

Yeah, I know, she’s not a boy, but a story about pee just fits with this picture. 

This morning Lydia was running around crazily as usual and just happened to be naked. (And only for a matter of seconds I should add.) Tyler came downstairs with her clothes for the day and noticed with the sun coming through the kitchen window some shiny footprints on the wood floor. And, of course, those footprints led right to a nice clear puddle a few steps away. He did the math...quick-pee Lydia had left her mark. She denied it. But she denies everything so that’s not saying much. I guess the floor needed mopping anyway. :)
