Just when you think you are getting through things something always comes up. We finally go through our girls first birthdays and now this. Christmas is 55 days away!!! EEK! What are we going to do. We don’t even have one present ready. We have some serious work to do!
As you can tell from the timer, Annie is now one years old! The Girls ages can now be expressed in years. It’s been a long, rough year but I wouldn’t change a minute of it. We celebrated her birthday by going to the Phoenix Zoo. We had taken them to the zoo once before, [...]
Annie:Today she wanted to eat with a spoon at dinner. So I poked a carrot and let her hold it. Immediately she put the fork in her mouth and went back to spar another carrot. It took her a couple of times to figure the whole process out but she can do it now!!! She [...]
Sunday was The Girls’ big Birthday Bash. It was a ladybug themed party. We made little ladybug finger puppets for all of the guests and little bug holders complete with live ladybugs. The children seemed to enjoy both of these items. The Girls were even wearing ladybug outfits that their Aunt Teresa made them. In [...]
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIMBERLY ROSE Today is Kimberly’s first birthday. She will be having cake later on. It will be her first taste. Hopefully we will get some great pics of her today to share.
Today is a sad day of sorts. Aside from the fact that Annie fell this morning and got a bloody eye, Kimberly is turning one this weekend. I know that many of you see this more as a happy time than a sad one but, it is hard. This year has been full of many [...]
Yesterday we decided to go to Young’s Farm in Dewey, Arizona for the annual Pumpkin Festival. We had breakfast at Cracker Barrel (thanks for the suggestion, Larry!) and drove on up. We timed it just right so that The Girls would take their normal two-hour morning nap on the way to Dewey, which is about [...]
Sandi pointed out that I neglected to mention the coolest thing—to my mind—about Little Bit. Sandi’s officially due May 9th, but we’re going to schedule the C-section a week early at our doctor’s suggestion. We induced Annie a week before her gestational due date to no ill effect, so we’ll definitely do the same again. [...]
We don’t know the sex of the baby yet, but that hasn’t stopped us from conjuring up names to call the kid (whose code name, incidentally, is “Little Bit”): Boys Frederick Timothy Stuart (“Hey Stu-Ball!”) Benjamin Girls Beatrix Katherine [NOTE FOR THE CURIOUS: Annie's code name was "Junior," Kimberly's was "Señorita," and Elizabeth's was "Sunshine."]
One question that we get asked by people comfortable enough to ask us such things is why we continue to call our family blog “PregoBlog” even though it’s been over eleven months since we were pregnant. It’s a good question and I normally answer that we like the continuity: it would be odd to see [...]
I took my eyes off the girls for one second today and of course they went exploring. They found Vaseline. When I looked at them Annie had her hand inside the jar and was squishing it between her fingers. As I came toward her she started to put her hand near her mouth. Thankfully, I [...]
When I was at Target this weekend I bought the girls pumkin Trick-or-Treat bags. They are the ones that look like jack-o-lanterns with a handle. Kimberly throws hers down most of the time. She does this with most everything. Then Annie comes along and carries both, hers and her sisters. She likes to carry things [...]
