Nixon had a late nap and woke up having a complete melt down. He cried and CRIED for a good 40 minutes wanting me to hold him a certain way, with my arms a certain way, and only touching his back and nothing else. As soon as I sat on the bed (my arms were getting tired) he freaked even more. Plain and simple, he was not stopping and there was nothing I could do or say to make him feel better. (I tried) Anyways, after awhile I asked him if he wanted to play in the snow. He still cried and said "NO". I put him in the tub thinking he'd be happy but he screamed louder. It was a fast bath and then he just wanted to lay on my nap watching Nemo...naked. I asked if we should get his diaper, shirts, or pants and he replied no every time and would fuss if I tried to move. He started to calm down and was content watching Nemo...once again, naked. 45 minutes later when I finally got him dressed and we were ready to leave the house he found a hat and gloves on his own and went to the door sayin "no, no, no" (this means SNOW). I thought it was funny that he remembered me asking earlier if he wanted to play in the snow. The bad thing was that when I asked that I was really talking about ice skating. Snow, ice skating....they are close right?
This is him ready to go out and play...so funny!
We ate at La Beau's before going skating. The ice skating closed at 9:30 and after we left La Beau's it was 8:40. I was stressing that we wouldn't have enough time! Silly me, we ended up getting on the ice around 8:50 and left at 9:15. After so many laps around it can get pretty old!
I don't think I have been ice skating since I was 12. I was scared. Luckily I had Nixon's stroller to hang on to, but when Conner pushed Nixon around you can bet I was standing on the side holding tight to the railing!
Even holding on as tight as I could to the stroller, I still feel like I had a couple near death experiences!
It was very clear to see that Nixon had the most fun cruising around with his daddy. Daddy is SO much more fun that I am, and it showed in Nixon's face! It was so cute to watch him and see his huge smile when they would come flying by me. When I would take a turn and him and I would go around slowly, Nixon just kept saying, "Dada, go?" Thanks buddy!
It was definitely a great family night, and fun to do something different that we all enjoyed!
Oh and for some reason....Conner wanted me to take a picture with him and his figure skates in a special post. Here you go baby! ;)
