Double Trouble Strikes Again
The other day when we were getting our Christmas trees out the boys found these Santa hats. They've all taken turns putting them on, and I think that they are all ultra cute with them on.
Once again, the other night, the boys got unusually quiet. The really scary thing is that this unusual quiet that I speak of only takes about 2.5 milliseconds for us to realize that something is not right. Seriously, it's like no time at all and we're like "The boys are too quiet."
There was a "creamy" film all over Nash and it smelled like wintergreen. We were not sure if it was some of Abbey's AVEDA lotion, Comet bathroom cleaner or what. Reed kept taking us to the family room and pointing to a bottle of Aveeno lotion that we put on the boys each night after bath.
It took us a while to convince Reed that the Aveeno lotion is unscented, therefore we knew that it was not possible for the scent that we were smelling to be the lotion that he was saying it was.
Thankfully, Will, the trooper, was able to coo in the floor of the family room while we got down to the bottom of the latest installment of the big boy's silly antics.
Finally, I suggested to Abbey that she look until Will's bed, which is where I originally found the dynamic duo. And the mystery "cream" was Heal Cream. Yes, we now have too little boys whose heads, arms, and chest are completely callous free.
Last night, Abbey and I were insane and joined thousands of other people who should know better and headed to Wal-Mart, Target, and Macy's. We left at 2:00 and got home at 6:00. Reed, of course, was already awake. Abbey let me lay down with Nash who slept until 7:15. So, needless to say, we are pretty tired. We decided to spend another night in Memphis since neither of us felt like driving home sleepy. Nash and Pop were enjoying the Wizard of Oz when Abbey realize Nash was trying to emulate the way Pop had his hand on his head.
Reed enjoyed cuddling with Lola and Will is asleep, but who knows for how long. He's cutting his first tooth.
