A week with Johnny

This week was a little strange. Johnny wasn't felling good so he stayed home on Tuesday and Wednesday. He said he needed to go in the next day and he tried, but we got over a foot of snow Wednesday night so he couldn't get the car out. Then we got another 6 inches Thursday night and couldn't get out again. So we got lots of Johnny time. We played games and had a little fun in the snow. It was great making a snowman with Daphne. She didn't help much in the actual building, but she kept asking for a nose and mouth for her little snowman. She also kept asking why Elsa was sad and made it snow and I will give you one guess what she named the snowman...

Tuesday we went to the doctors which was overdue for Quentin. He had to get shots and he was so good. Daphne and I both just got well checks. We have to go back in two weeks to get his 4 month shots. Then we will be caught up with his shots, but he will need to get his six month shots soon too because he will be turning 6 months in a couple weeks. He is getting so big and I finally have his weight (15lbs.) and height (25.5in.). Daphne got hers checked to: weight (31lbs.) and height(36.5in.). They are growing to fast.

This week was pretty typical. Johnny went to work and I played with the kids. I am really trying to cut down on the "screen time" me and the kids have. It hard to come up with things to do, but it is so fun to play with the kids Daphne is starting to have such a little personality and Quentin is becoming more playful. He still wants me to hold him all the time though. One of our favorite things to do is play games. We got a couple of game for her at Christmas, but she has also discovered she loves Janga and she is getting pretty good. She love everything about it; the actual game, the blocks falling and having to rebuild too. 

She is having a little backtrack in the potty training front, but we are working on it. She did make me so proud last week at church when I checked on her in Nursery they told me she went to the bathroom all by herself! I think the problem is she would rather play than go to the bathroom. Kid problems, right? 

Johnny has started a new rotation. He is doing an O.B. elective and we thought he would be super busy, but it has been the complete opposite. Apparently the doctor in charge is on vacation so they don't really have anything for the students to do. We will see how it is when he gets back.

Shopping Around

This week was a little lonely, but it went fast. Johnny went to two interviews this week. The first was in Quincy, Illinois. He was gone a little longer on this one because he couldn't get on a flight back home on Monday so we didn't pick him up until late Tuesday night. We did go to the mall and I actually shopped and bought something! That hasn't happened in a long time. The kids did so great out walking around we took advantage of it and went to another mall when Johnny went on his second trip of the week. I was super sad I couldn't go on this one with him. He was in Saint Petersberg, Florida and he was right by the beach. We thought about trying to go with him and do a Disney trip, but it wouldn't have worked out.

Now he is done interviewing and it is time to decide how to rank them all, which I know will be hard. He liked so amny of them and they all have plus and minuses.
