Climbed out of the Crib

I've been letting Sarah just play in her crib instead of taking naps lately. She seems to need to be away from everyone, even if she doesn't sleep. But the other day, she played for over an hour, and so when it was quiet, I peeked in and this is what I saw. Totally freaked me out when there was no child in the crib. Now, I don't know what to do. It may be time for a toddler bed...or a bigger crib.

Happy Birthday Sarah...Happy Seventh to us...

So, two years ago, Sarah was due on our anniversary. I thought, "This child has many other days of this month to declare her birthday"...but no. At six o'clock that night, Sarah Anne was born. So, now Sarah's birthday will be the main attraction of this day...and our anniversary is kind of an afterthought, but we're happy anyway.

We had an awesome cake, and more presents than Sarah could pay attention to, but Rachel and Katie kept opening them for her anyway. She sang "Happy Birthday" to herself the whole day, and kept blowing out pretend candles. We had her two year pictures taken a couple of weeks ago, and they turned out cute.

As to our anniversary. I put together a video of us...that I cannot, for the life of me, get up and going on this blog, so you probably won't see it. But we have had seven wonderful years together and plan on having many more! The best is yet to be...

David's First Drink of Alcohol

David came home from work today and told me had his first drink of alcohol today.

He has an infection on his face that he has been putting rubbing alcohol on a few times a day to keep it clean. Well, he works on the computer a lot and has his water bottle there with it. So, after he had dabbed some alcohol on his face, he set the bottle down right by the water bottle. He got thirsty and unscrewed a lid, without looking, and got a mouthful of alcohol. You can imagine David flailing his arms trying to find somewhere to spit it out, finding the garbage and spitting, then walking around his office singing "ahhhhhhh" because its burning him. He runs to the bathroom, and washes his mouth out good...but its still each class period that day, he has to explain why he has to be up there with his mouth wide open.

Well, I was laughing pretty hard when he told me.
