Annie and Kimberly have gotten some new underwear. I read that I should begin introducing them into underwear. I bought some last time I was out. The Girls love them. They wear them all the time over their diapers. They also enjoy wearing them when swimming, this used to be a naked activity. They look [...]
In one short month Annie Elizabeth will be 2 years old! She has brought such joy to our hearts. How fast this time has raced by! It seems like just yesterday I was laboring and awaiting her arrival. We have definitely gotten into the terrible twos. Tonight Annie made a fuss for close to an [...]
The gallery will be down for a bit. I’m moving to different software.
Maddie gobble down her rice cereal last night! She could not get it in fast enough.
Night #2 of feeding Madeline rice cereal mixed with formula went so well! She was leery at first she began feeding like a champ very soon after. I am going to try to get the pics up in a bit.
We were making our weekly trip to Costco. Bill met us there since we went to the one within walking distance from his work. We shopped and bought all sorts of things. After shopping we sat down to have food. Sitting there I could not believe how big and grown up the kids were. They [...]
Outside of breastmilk and Enfamil! Last night we tried to give Madeline some rice creal mixed with formula. The stage was set; she was in the highchair, playing with a water cup, the food had been mixed and sadly she did not like it at all. We will be trying it again tonight. Hopefully she [...]
Bill is done with his woking overtime. He is finally home with us again. The girls could not be more happy. Unfortunately Kimberly shows her happiness by screaming, rather squealing at the top of her lungs. We have got to figure out a way to stop that. Otherwise we are going to need quite a [...]
Madeline Christine cannot be 5 months old already!! Where did the time go? She is almost able to sit up on her own! The other two were not able to do that until much later. Maddie also scoots around after her sisters. She can only get about 6-8 inches, but oh my she is still [...]
Lately I have been letting the girls stand on stools and help out in the kitchen. They love this new activity and are such great helpers. Kimberly’s favorite thing to do is to mix stuff. This also includes shaking Madeline’s bottles once I have fixed them. Annie loves to watch intently and try out anything! [...]
I cannot believe that in 29 days my baby will be 2 years old. It was just yesterday that I was holding her fresh from the womb. Time goes so quickly when you least expect it.
Tonight while I was making dinner I had to shred the cheese. Usually Bill does this job, but since he is working until at least 9 tonight it was up to me to shred the cheese. No problem for me. I am up to the challenge However when I started to shred it both of [...]
We have a little night light that is in Madeline’s room. Kimberly thinks that it is hers. Each morning she gets her bossy pants up and goes into Maddie’s room and takes it out of the socket. She then says “No Mannie, Kimmie’s light!” She then proceeds to go into her room and plug it [...]
Daddy just informed us that he is going into project completion mode until next Thursday. This means that he will not be home much. He can work from home, but he also needs to have many face-to-face hours to complete the project. He will not be able to come home at his usual 4 PM. [...]
Today I was just going about my normal day. I had made my children a hot breakfast of toaster waffles and banana. I was talking to my sister on the phone and resting on the sofa. Typical for me. Kimberly started saying “Momma, milk in Dora cup.” I got up to fulfill her request. As [...]
I have been weaning Maddie and I am nearing completion. As I look back on our breastfeeding experience I am humbled at being able to sustain my child’s life outside of the womb with only the milk from my body. Am I sad about the end of this phase? Yes, of course I am. However, [...]
Annie loves to dress herself. Today, like most days, she undertook this task! She put her top on inside out and her shorts on the same way! Not sure why she does this. Maybe she likes the bright side of the fabric on the inside. She is getting very good at it and is always [...]
I am so happy that my little girl is gaining weight again. At her appointment today she weighed in at a whopping 15 pounds!!!! When she left the hospital on Aug 18, she was only 13 pounds. Way to go Maddie!!! Other than that her appointment went as planned. 2 shots and a clean bill [...]
Madeline’s weaning is going pretty well. She is not that big of a fan of the bottle but she is getting there. Today I increased her bottle intake to 2 a day! I know I am nuts but I find myself getting giddy when her bottle feedings are coming.
The other day I bought a Jiffy yellow cake mix at the store. Today the girls mixed the cake mix up and we cooked it. While fixing dinner I frosted them. Just for fun I put candles in them. The girls were so excited to see “happy cake!” They got a kick out of blowing [...]« Previous Entries
