Missing Cobb

Don’t worry, he’s back now, but Cobb was gone for about 21 hours today. It all started last night when Harvey came barreling downstairs to go outside to pee.  I let him out, and Cobb ran out with him.  Bruce came to go outside a few minutes later, and Cobb was by the door then, but I couldn’t remember if he actually came in or stayed out.  A few minutes later Bruce and Harvey came back in.  Usually Cobb comes in with them, but sometimes he likes to just hang out a little longer.  So I gave it a few minutes then went outside to our fenced-in backyard to look for him using the light on my iPhone. I couldn’t …

Super Lady

No more paci.  Milly said she’s ready to trade her paci in for a toy today, so we both had talks with her about it making sure she knew that if she traded in her paci she wouldn’t have it to sleep with anymore.  When I asked if she understood this she said she did. To that end, Amanda and Milly went to Brilliant Sky this afternoon and Milly picked out a light-up ladybug that casts stars and a moon on the wall in red, blue and green.  Amanda said she gave Milly the paci to hand to the guy at the counter and she looked at first like she might cry, but she did it.  Amanda asked the ladybug’s …

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 …
