This and That

We think Noah is starting to have nightmares.  And it really, really sucks that as much as he tries to tell us what's wrong when he wakes up all upset - we don't understand him.  He woke up once in the night crying and talking up a storm even before Nerdstar got up there to him.  Then today, during his nap, he woke up in the middle of it again crying and talking.  I wanted to cry I felt so bad for him.  It didn't take long for him to calm down, but still.

Totally different topic.

These days, the leaves are so beautiful in all their colors, but they are also the bane of our existence.  We have a nifty black n decker leaf blower/mulcher.  But it takes so very long to get leaves up.  And we keep having rainy days.  Plus one of us has to keep an eye on Noah.  I finally bought some fertilizer   and a dispenser in hopes of getting the leaves off the front lawn before the rain started on Sunday or Monday.  Ugh.  Now it could rain some on Friday.  Directions say to not put the fertilizer on wet grass, but to water after application.  We'll see how it goes.  DIY is not for wimps.  Oh yeah, and this is just the front yard - all those tall, tall trees in the back yard haven't really started yet.

Other than that... well, I'm still in love with a baby boy.  He really is a good, sweet kid.  He minds pretty well for a two year old. (well, he minds me...)  He takes every bit of patience I have and then some, but it's fun having him to run errands with and go to the park and all that.  I've spent more time outside in the past year than I did the past ten years combined.

Oh, and one more thing about dreams - Noah is now in every single one of mine.
