Johnson Cookout

I had a pretty busy morning.  I did some work for myself and I did a good bit for Scott as well.  That went on through the early afternoon.  Around 3:00 Amanda and I went to do some early voting. When we got back Amanda and Milly made cookies.  I played with Milly for a bit while Amanda finished up the baking while talking to her mom on the phone, but then I had to go to the bathroom.  Milly told Amanda she had to pee then peed on the floor.  That was the second accident we’ve had this week.  I think I forgot the mention the other one, but the other one happened when she was in the bathroom, …

Chalk Face

Milly decided to continue to show what she thinks of daylight savings time this morning by getting up at 6:30 this morning and not going back to sleep.  At least Amanda got to see her before she left, I guess.  She was a little fussy throughout the morning, but she was also very sweet.  The thing to do in the mornings before I start work seems to be playing with toys.  She’ll have some and she’ll give me some, then they’ll converse for a minute before Milly suggests they all go for a walk, which involves getting on hands and knees and walking them around whatever room we’re in.  Considering how little carpet we have in the house anymore, it’s …

Dinner with Jarrett

As excited as we were about Milly using the potty yesterday, we didn’t have a repeat.  In fact, I don’t know if it was the fact that she was sick (runny nose, sniffles, coughing) or the fact that she became overly comfortable peeing, but not only did Milly not pee in the potty today, despite getting a promised dollhouse as a reward, she also peed on the floor, a kitchen chair and the couch. On the plus side, Amanda washed the couch cushion covers and they look really nice.  Going back to another downside, now she wants to wash them all and she said they’re a pain to get on and off. I went for a jog again today, though …

Milly Sings

First off, happy third 29th birthday to my sister, Erin.  I called and left her a message with Milly telling her happy birthday. Milly had a very good morning.  After waking up around 9:00, she was very active.  What was the most fun to me is that Amanda called me to the living room to see what Milly was doing: she was singing! Now, she’s sounded like she’s maybe sung a little before, but she was most definitely singing today.  An episode of Yo Gabba Gabba was on and she was singing (and dancing) along to Please?  Thank You!  It’s a very simple song that goes like this: Please?  Thank you! Please?  Thank you! Please?  Thank you! Magic, magic, magic, …

2010 Voting

Hannah came by to watch Milly while Amanda and I went to vote today.  We thought it would maybe take a while, because when we went to vote in the last (presidential) election we waited in line for something like three hours.  This time we didn’t wait at all.  We were still working out who all we were going to vote for when we left the house and figured we’d have some time in line to look at my iPhone to finish studying.  Instead we ended up sitting on a bench outside the voting room, and once we went in we were out within a couple of minutes. I’m half-watching political results right now.  It looks like Republicans are sweeping …
