Monday Madness

Wow it has been way too long since I have posted a blog entry. For all my blog readers and followers I apologize.
Things here in the Harrison Household have been a little crazy. We have been informed of a rent increase as our lease comes to an end. With the increase it appears we are going to have to move and it isn't always easy seeing eye to eye, but I know that it will all work out in the end with lots of patience, good communication, and God's direction.

Ok, it has been a month, so I better get caught up on here...hmmm, what is new??
Joshua took a tumble Memorial Day weekend while we were visiting Great Grandma and Great Grandpa's house up north. He tripped with a plastic spoon in his mouth and boy did it bleed. We had him checked out at the dentist the next day and they said everything looked ok. He was such a trooper despite cuts to the inside of both of his lips and lots of swelling of his gums and lips.
Joshua has recently dropped down to 1 nap a day and I must say that it is bittersweet. I loved that he and Madelynn took naps at the same time, but it became very hard for Joshua the month before the switch to actually sleep his second nap. He would ask to go to sleep at 9:30/10am and would go down great and sleep for 2hours but then he would cry and cry for his second nap, which carried over to bedtime being a struggle. Joshua now goes down at 12/12:30 and sleeps until 3/3:30. He is much happier and so am I. Though, most of our naps start out like this, as I have 2 little kids (one being his sister) to get situated before I can rock with him as they are just waking up from their naps.
And then there's the Moo. Joshua calls her "MOOOOOOOOO MOO". He absolultely loves her to death. He loves to kiss her, hug her and play with her. He does not like for her to play with his toys unless he gives them to her, but he's generally good about sharing.
Madelynn is such a happy baby! Though I don't know if I'd consider her a baby anymore. She crawls, walks furniture, hangs like a monkey from her crib, walks if you hold her fingers, she can get from crawling to sitting and from standing to sitting no problem. She is eating more foods but does not like to pick food up and put it in her mouth, toys are an exception.
And Madelynn now takes baths like a big girl-sitting up. She loves to sit under the running water. She loves to lay on her tummy and kick and splash and crawl all around the tub. SHe is such a delight!
Another thing Madelynn loves is her TOES. This is a new discovery and her favorite time to chew on them is when it is time to eat. I guess we are going to have to start using the try on her highchair!
Isn't she cute? Well my blog time for the day has come to an end, but I wanted to share 1 last photo of the Moo. Stay tuned tomorrow for my "Ten on Tuesday" entry!!

  3. We will say prayers for you and Dan about moving; I know it's not an easy process when you realize what you have to do.
