Long Weekend

Yes I know, I did not write a post for Friday again. I didn't get home until late and the wife was hogging the laptop, again.

I started paramedic school on the 4th and I have been very busy. I do not get much free time and will get even less when I start doing my clinicals next month. I have to do a lot of studying and reading. You have to know a lot in order to be a paramedic.

I have been home with the girls all weekend while the wife is at work. The wife is working three days in a row so I stay home all three days with the girls. It can be rough. Especially since I really can't do any studying when I am with the kids, I pretty much hit the book when the wife gets home at night.

Maggie is such a little talker. All day long. She seems to pick up a new word every day. Her new saying is "El   Sho" for the Elephant Show. Have you ever heard of this Canadian import? I didn't until last week. Maggie loves this show for some reason. All day she keeps asking to watch it. I have to say I am not a fan.

When I am not chasing Maggie around the house, I am feeding or playing with Lucy. She can be such a happy baby. Then she can be such a screamer too. Just like a banshee. She mostly does the screaming when we put her down to sleep. Which can take a while at times. We try to let her cry it out, but we do go in and calm her down every 5-10 minutes. As soon as we put her down, waaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh! It really isn't crying. It is full blown blood curdling screams. The wife usually ends up nursing her to sleep in the rocking chair. I can sometimes calm her down, but when she wants mommy she will thrash about until she gets her way. Slowly she is getting better at going to sleep. I usually have to put her in the swing to nap because after hearing her scream for an hour, we both need to rest.

In other news, Lucy finally rolled over for the first time last week. From tummy to back. She can almost to back to tummy. Before we know it we are going to be in trouble with Maggie and Lucy running around the house.
