Carnival night

Laura's school had carnival night last night. It was a nice ending to the day. I wouldn't say it was an overly productive day, but it was pretty good.

Jason turned 8 weeks old. We spent a lot of time with him. I felt tired because it was my turn to be up with him at night. It was rough because Jason seemed to wake every thirty minutes. I have a feeling he wasn't eating enough so he kept waking up.

Whoever isn't up with Jason, takes care of Laura in the morning. She is quite easy. All you really need to do is make sure she stays on task. Jeff was on Laura duty as I just laid on the couch. He thought I was taking his job but no I just needed a change of scenery.

Jason is playing more with his activity mat. He coos and babbles at the hanging animals. It's fun watching him change daily. I think he will be an early talker like Laura. Laura talked at 6 months.

I walked to my doctor office to get his evaluation for my wheelchair. People are so strange when they see me alone. There were two nurses behind me walking probably on lunch break. They came up and said loudly as if I couldn't hear, "Look at you out here by yourself!! Do you know where you are going??" I just smiled and nodded. I was running late and wasn't in the mood to educate. Plus I thought they were hopeless in understanding anyway.

After I came home, my new attendant came and filled out her application. I'm excited for her to start! Her name is Jennifer and I believe we will do great.

My mom and brother surprised me with a visit as I was rocking Jason while Jeff ran to the post office. My brother lives in Florida but comes up from time to time. We have a great relationship. He hid in the kitchen before Laura came in. She was shocked and very excited to see her uncle.

After they left, we went out to dinner at Palmero's. The kids were excellent. Laura said her Italian hoagie was delicious!  Then we headed to Laura's school for carnival night. My Dad met us there and we had fun. We thought it was a fund raiser but actually no money was needed. They earned tickets through games set up in each class.
They earned tickets and redeemed them for sweets or little toys. Laura had a blast!!!
