happy feet

mom and i took the kiddos (all 3) to Fort Smith (about 1 1/2 hrs away) this weekend to see "Happy Feet". actually we went with the intentions of watching "Charlotte's Web" and the kids decided on "Happy Feet" at the last minute. It was one of the best and funniest and sweetest children's movies that I've watched in a long time. I really had no interest in it before and now i am so happy that we got to see it.

ezra did beautifully. he slept in his car seat the entire time (until i woke him up for lunch) and that is just amazing to me. neither of the other kids ever slept in their car seats unless they were in a moving vehicle.

julian ate almost an entire medium sized tub of popcorn by himself. the kid can pack away popcorn like nobody i've ever seen. of course, he had a terrible stomach ache by that evening.

we took the kids shopping after it was over, and that was quite an experience. we had to do lots of shuffling around (ezra in stroller, ezra out of stroller, juju in stroller, bathroom trip, bathroom trip, stop for drinks, bathroom trip, feed ezra, etc. etc. etc.) and didn't get too much shopping done, but in the end, i was very pleased with how well we all did, considering it was a nap-free day, plus mucho sugary treats at the movie theater. i always have so much fun shopping with my mom too, and it was great to venture out of the house.

a few more days until all the men are here (dad, cj and dustin) and then we will have christmas. it is very festive here in mom's house, her tree is beautiful and very tempting for my juju, but he is doing pretty well with leaving it alone. a few nights ago, julian came into my room at 2 am needing to use the restroom. we had stayed up late that night wrapping gifts, so the tree was full. julian saw the gifts and said, "Ooooohhhh mama, it's cri-mass day! let's open presents!!!"

It seems like FOREVER that my 14 month old baby was really a teeny ezra baby! I just heard a report on my local news that I'm sharing with other parents. You shouldn't let teeny babies sleep in their carseats UNLESS their heads are supported so that they can't flop forward & cut off their airway. The report said that it's so easy for little babes to get their air cut off sitting up like that. I think it's important to pass that on. :)
