Montgomery loves the snow and we play outside as much as we can, but Sunday 1/26 was 9 degrees, so after finding an idea on Pinterest, I decided to give it a try...
I used 3 buckets of SNOW, for the tub!! Put his snow pants and boots on, fleece jacket is easier to move in than a winter jacket, make sure to use gloves, the snow is still cold and can cause frostbite.
Montgomery had a blast, I was going to use beach toys, but they are put away :( so I grabbed some stuff out of the kitchen!
Sometimes I like to be Rachael, just me, out later than 8pm, not Montgomery's mom! So on Saturday, I went bowling with Jake & Jen and some of there friends. Jakes mom was In town visiting and offered to watch all the kiddos. Montgomery I put to bed at there house at 8:30pm, and we left at 9:20pm. It was so nice to have adult interaction, have a few drinks and bowl. Not having to worry about diapers, sippy cups, etc.
Don't get me wrong I love being a mom, but every once in awhile, I just wanna be Rachael.
Thursday 1/23, we had a play date with a few friends from MOPS. As we were picking up, around noon, Audrey was climbing up her mom an flipping when we heard something snap. Poor Audrey started crying and not moving her arm. So Jen took her to ER, while we stayed and played, and watched Cash for her. So a two hour play date turned Into all day! But we truly enjoyed ourselves! (On a side note: it was moved cartilage in her elbow, and she's doing great)
After we left, we had to go to Lily's!!!
Lily and I were off to "dress for success" and Montgomery played with her 5 kids, and was watched by her hubby!!!
Montgomery had his first trip to the dentist(1/16/2014)...To look at a chipped tooth. It's only 2% chipped. And the dentist, dr Martin said it should be fine. The dental hygentist was amazing with Montgomery!!! He got to play with a huge snoopy! He got to watch a movie about a dog brushing teeth. He got a gift bag, with arrow ball and camo backpack!!! I'm so proud of my little man. The dentist said his teeth looked healthy and pearly white! We talked about milk, bottles, sippy cups and pacifiers. I'm very happy that I'm doing things right!!! And Montgomery was good for both dental hygentist and dentist!!!
My baby is growing up, he just got his top fang teeth!!! That makes 13 total. He has first dentist appointment tomorrow! About a week ago, he tore is frenum (the skin that attaches lip to gums). He was jumping on pillows, and all of a sudden looked like something from twilight! I called the pediatrician on call and she said it happens. But today was looking and it looks like he may have slightly chipped a front tooth. So off to the dentist we go!!!
And since my SIL said my chart had too many teeth!!! I erased some!!! I guess kids only have 20 teeth!!! 6 more to go!!!!
...and just like that, my baby turned into a toddler and is that much closer to turning 2. Happy 21 months old Montgomery!!!
