Saturday’s Top Five Laughs- Come Join Our Blog Hop!

I hope you all have a great weekend. We are heading out to bring Zane and Hayley to Sesame Street Live tonight so I am sure I will have a lot of laughs for next week.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy my laughs this week. Feel free to join our blog hop if you have a top 5 Saturday laugh post, funny, or cute post. Please don’t link up if your post doesn’t qualify. After a few months of this, you all know what qualifies:) Feel free to take my button, but this is not mandatory. Also, feel free to help me spread the word about this hop. Laughter is something we could all use in our lives.


Now my laughs:

5. Zane is addicted to his pacifier and must sleep at night with it. He usually is a great sleeper but the other night, I heard him scream at midnight. I waited a few minutes to see if he would calm down. After I realized that he was not calming down, I go in and see that he accidently knocked all of his pacifiers to the ground. He managed to take the bumper off and when this fell, his pacifiers went with it. Poor baby!

4. My husband is trying to break him of the night pacifier for sleep. Since we are both dentists, we know although he is young, we need to eventually take it away. So, one night my husband took it away and we looked at Zane in the monitor. He was searching high and low for the pacifier and finally hear him scream after realizing it was no where to be found. When my husband went in and showed him it, he opened his mouth wide and had the biggest grin on his face. We will wait to break him of this habit- he is young for now.

3. Zane said his first word this week. It was bye and he kept saying it over and over. It really is so cute!

2. We got some shirts this week to review on my blog. One was a personalized Minnie shirt that was for Hayley. My rule is, that once the products come, it goes in my living room and is not to be touched, till I am ready to write the review. Hayley was pleading with me to wear her new shirt and I was adamatly said “NO.” Low and behold, in the am- I found her with the shirt on. I asked her where she got it and she tells me, “Daddy gave it to me.” I then proceeded to ask my husband and he denied it. I have no idea who to believe, but the girl got the shirt, and it hasn’t left her back for the past day.

1. Hayley had a pee-pee accident the other day. It never happens but she was overly excited with playing, and forgot to tell us. She then says to my husband, “Daddy, don’t be mad. It is O’kay- I will wash it and get new underwear. You are not mad, Daddy, right?” Who can be mad at that!

    We also have a pacifier addict on our hands (really two while sleeping). We put at least four in natalie's crib so she can always find it. I think #2 is my favorite! Those little girls and their daddies.

    I love that Zane is now talking!! Bye is a favorite word at our house too!

    I love this! It makes my heart ache for when my older kids fumbled in the night for their lovies, and reminds me of the huge smile we get from our littlest when she sets eyes on her paci. :). Glad to hear from a dentist that I don't have to take it from her just yet – not looking forward to that!!!

    Thanks for your kind words on my blog, and for the warm welcome to twitter – I'm following you back (and spending entirely too much time on there)! :)

  3. Life With Captain Fussybuckets says

    LOL, we, too have a pacifier addict! And the darn things fall and get trapped between the wall and the crib. So, when we are missing some pacis, all we do is go in, pull the crib away from the wall and plop! About three pacis or more fall to the floor! ahhhh

  4. Maria says

    Aww, it's so cute that Hayley was so aplogetic about her accident! She's a sweetheart!
    Too funny that she ended up witht the shirt on…I bet it's one adorable shirt!
    I'm glad Zane and his pacifier were reunited :)

    I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing weekend, Melissa!!
    Thank you so much for your sweet comment…you always brighten my day! I definitely think we will meet someday! :)
    It would be awesome!


  5. Chasing the Wolf Pack says

    The accident was so cute! Can't be mad at her.

    I successfully linked up this week! I checked. It's scheduled to post at 8:00 am.

  6. Kecia says

    Aww, poor Zane and his pacifiers! Sawyer liked having one, but it got to where he only wanted it at night. We finally broke the habit and 13 1/2 months. We just did his routine without including the "give him his paci" part. He didn't like it the first couple nights, but within a week, he had forgotten about it.

    And I agree that no one could be mad at a precious little girl making sure you aren't mad at her, especially when she offers to clean up the accident. :)


    So funny! My little Jade is also addicted to her pacifier! She even learned a new word…MINE. So I take away the pacifier and she yells, "MINE!" Oh dear!

    She was sick and teething for two weeks, and just plain miserable and the only way to give her any comfort was to allow her to have her pacifier. So we gave in and let her. And now it is a nightmare breaking her of that habit, and trying to go back to only allowing her to have it at night time or nap time. I'm not really sure how to ween her from it, as she is the first of my 3 babies that ever took one to begin with!

  8. Our Little Fam says

    Aw, so cute of her.. definitely can't get mad after her saying that! haha. So awesome Zane said his first word. Lil' E was definitely a pacifier baby, too.

  9. royalegacy says

    What a milestone for Hayley, realizing what she had done. Bless her heart! What a sweetie she is.

  10. Lisa @ Two Bears Farm says

    Cort still takes a paci (at night only) and I'm not sure what to do because if he doesn't have it, eh starts sucking his thumb, and a thumb habit would be harder to break than a paci habit. So I've done nothing. He's 2 1/2. Blush.

  11. Candice Moretti says

    Oh my goodness! You have some great ones this week. I kind of wish that G would have taken a paci, but she was all set. I can only imagine what it must have been like to see Z searching all over for his paci. Can't wait to see this shirt that H had to wear. I bet its adorable. Have a wonderful weekend! :)

  12. OverMom says

    Aw, cute laughs! Yay Zane for your first word! Love it.
    Cute Hayls, Def cannot be mad at that little sweet face and her wanting to help clean it up!
    Have a great weekend

  13. Brandy Nelson says

    Hi Melissa! Thanks so much for stopping by and checking on me,lol…Last Saturday was my son's b-day, so I was MIA. I will definitely participate this week! Just have to think of something laugh-worthy! :) Have a great weekend!

  14. momto8 says

    bye bye…i remember
    my kids saying that over and over too…and then we would wave right back and repeat bye bye….it was the never ending farewell!!
    have fun tonight!

  15. Carissa says

    Aww, poor Zane, let him keep those paci's!! Definitely couldn't be mad at Hayley! Great laughs as usual, thanks for hosting!

  16. Jessica @ TheCrazyChaoticHouse says

    lol… #1. Sometimes my son leaks a little and when I ask him about it he will say…"its okay mom it's just a couple drops, it will dry"….they are just too funny with the things they say:))

  17. Samantha says

    Aww, Zane! Gwen does the same thing with her bottle {she gets one in the morning and one at night} we are trying to wean her off completely, but when she is tired at night she searches the WHOLE house for it, chanting "Ba Ba." lol
    The Hayley pee pee story is too cute! You totally cannot be mad at that!
