All morning, Andrew has been quite difficult. It all started when I woke to the sound of him crying somewhere, calling "Mommy, Mommy!"

I was groggy, so it took me a few minutes to gather my wits, but then I started to search the house. He was at the front door, weeping, aparently thinking that I'd left him. (Yesterday he nearly scrambled out of a second story window when he saw me leave to get the mail -- a lesson never to leave a window open, even if it's screened, when a toddler can reach it.)

I comforted him and we ate breakfast and all, but it started his day out on the wrong foot, and he was whining, crying or throwing a fit all morning.

So anyway, he was being so unreasonable that I finally just put him in his room to calm down.

Five minutes later I heard him come out, and it sounded like he was at the top of the stairs... then nothing. I went to check, and found him like this.

Now naptime is usually at 1pm, but I suppose he needed it earlier today.

The joys of parenting an (almost) two-year-old.

It was great to see you guys today. I'm glad Andrew was feeling much better by the time we saw him. Zoey was so sad to leave little Elijah.
I hope you liked the veggies! ~A

Aww...Poor Andrew. Yes, the joys of parenting. They fall asleep in the most weirdest places.

Was great seeing you yesterday.
