New Floors

Well I am so glad they are done with the floors.  We had a bumpy start.  On Monday when they started, my elderly neighbor came over at 9 am when they started to rip up the tile by the front door.  He asked me if we where tearing up his water pipes.  I said no we are geting a new floor and they are right hear at the front door, they are no where near our sharing wall.  I  was a little suprised to see it also looked like we had woke him up, because most old ppl I know get up at the crack of dawn.
They almost got done on Monday but didn't get to finish the family room.  So they came back on Tuesday, when at 10 am they ran out of molding so I had to run and get some more.  So I was almost back home and Jeff called telling me that they need more flooring, they must have miss measured.  So I turned around to go back to Lumber Liquadators.  I got there had to wait in line again for 30 min.  then they said we don't have any, but you can drive over an hour away to another store and get it there.  So I called Jeff and told him and we thought we would rather get it done today then have to put it off longer.
So I was so happy Bonnie was here to watch Jack for me so I could go get the flooring.  I got there fine, but wasn't too happy when I had to wait almost an Hour just to get 3 boxes!
I got home fine with the flooring and they finished up all but around the fireplace, we didn't have the right molding for that, and had to wait for them to get their truck in.
Yesterday they did all the upstaris carpet.  Looks really nice, I am trying to get everything put back in it's place.  I would rather go to bed.  Scooby also got to go to the groomer all day and get all pretty!

Bathtime with Jack

I really enjoy bedtime with Jack, he loves his baths, except when it is time to wash his hair.  I feel it is our one on one time and it is time to wind-down.   After his bath we get on P.J's I ask him what books he wants to read and I name a few.  He will yes or no to the titles.  By this time he is asking for his milk.  He will say "I want milk"  I do still try to get him to do the sign for things I know.  Then we get his milk and books and sit in the rocking chair and I read while he drinks his milk.  Then after 3 or 4 books I will ask him if he wants me to sing, the response is always "Yes".  So I lately I have been singins Row, Row your boat,  he will ask for "Rock baby" so I sing that and always Twinkle Twinkle, and he tries to sing with me.  So adorable!  
For the last week or so he has not been going to sleep as easly in the past.  I will get ready to put him in the crib and he will climb up as high on me as he can, like on my sholder and I can feel his grasp get tighter.  I then say "Pooh is ready to go night night".  He sleeps with Pooh every night.
When I rock him, I think to myself to savor this moment because he is growing so fast.

She really likes it also.  Now if I could just figure out what bedroom set to get.
