Tot School Rice in a Bucket

Lately I have not been keeping up with activities specific to Ted. He has been tagging along for all my home improvement projects. The family is going to be moving at the end of the summer which translates to WORK.

My latest mortal enemy is STAINING THE DECK. Blah! There are so many nooks and crannies on all the rungs that have to be painted. Today was Day 5 of deck staining and I am over it!

Back to Tot School... I saw a post online about putting alphabet letters in a tub of rice and letting the child find the letters and put them on a corresponding piece of paper with the alphabet on it.

I used Ted's alphabet puzzle and threw the pieces into a bucket of rice and had Ted fish them out and put them on the base. It is a super easy and cheap activity that actually turned out really well.  I had visions of Ted just dumping the rice onto the floor but he didn't!

if I fits, I sits

There is a funny cat thing on the internet called if I fits I sits. It shows cats sitting in lots of different boxes and containers. Well life around here is about to change with a potential move in the future. I have been busy cleaning out the house and getting rid of stuff. Ted is hilarious and will sit in anything possible. Here is my compilation of

If I fits, I sits (please note, I do not tell Ted to get in these things he does this all on his own)

cousin visits and updates

My sister and her kids had a mini visit with us this past weekend which was a lot of fun and went by so fast. As you can see the kids are in love with Tyler. What this picture does not show is how super uncomfortable we were. Ted was mad and had  wet diaper and Tyler was barely keeping the kids up. 

Everyone wanted to hold Ted. Like a good baby he put up with it. 

We had a gender reveal party and in my typical fashion I forgot to take any pictures. Ugh. Well we are having a boy and I am so excited! I was hoping for a boy :) here is a picture of max wrapped up in decorations the next day. All pets are awesome, but I think the dog is the most long suffering when it comes to putting up with people hahaha. 

I recently bought a punch card to the bouncy play place. What an insane workout that is! Luckily Tyler came with me the second time we went. Ted is like pushing dead weight up those inflatable ladders. And I'm not trying to make excuses but being pregnant does not help :) 

We bought Ted a sun hat and I made Tyler try on the adult equivalent. :)
