This morning, our house truly resembled a zoo. When I went into the kids room this morning, I was immediately clobbered with the smell of rancid poop. It was odd because, even when I am faced with a triple crapping in the morning, it doesn't smell this bad. I looked in Lukas's crib and was met with a horrifying sight. His pajamas were unzipped, his diaper was off, and he was covered from head to toe in poop. It was all over the crib, on the sheets, stuffed animals and blankets. He had poop in his hair. He was also very, very upset. I think he may have tried to remove his diaper, ran into some issues and then things just went terribly wrong. Needless to say, it was a horrible start to the day. Shortly after, Gabbie scratched my ear to the point that blood was dripping everywhere, not to mention it hurt like hell. So there you have it, a typical morning in the Myers house. We don't have 200 lb xanax popping, steak eating, wine drinking, face mauling chimps in our house, just the 25 lb, poop flinging kind.
In other news, Gabbie went pee on the potty for the first time last Friday. Although it has not happened since, we are hopeful the concept may be starting to click with her. Saturday, we all went to the mall and had a nice lunch for Valentine's day. Sunday, we attempted to go to church as a family. We were too obnoxious even for the cry room and didn't even make it half way though. Later on in the day, we ventured out of the house again to Jump City for our neighbor Brendan's 3rd birthday. This was actually a good time. The boys enjoyed playing on all the stuff after getting over their initial fear, Gabbie never conquered hers.
Yesterday, the speech therapist came to our house to gauge the progress of the kids. According to these folks, Lukas and Niklas are speaking at normal 2 year old levels and Gabbie is speaking at the level of a 30 month old. I really can't get over how blessed we are that Niklas is par for the course considering all he has been through.
