Today I had to give Annie her first spanking ever. I think it was harder on me then on her but who knows. I know I am still sad about it and she is napping. After I gave her the swat I gave her a hug and told her that she had to stay in [...]
Ever get a song stuck in your head for a while, days or even weeks? Yeah, that is what it must be like for Kimmie. She is obsessed with the song “Moon Moon Moon” by Laurie Berkner. Every time we are in the car she requests it. If I think about listening to the regular [...]
Last night I was sitting in the office playing on the computer when I heard a thud and crying. Kimmie had fallen out of her big girl bed. She has a habit of sitting up in bed, even when she is sleeping. I guess she sat up and then when she went to lay back [...]
Ugh! I knew I was not going to like this. These big girl beds are cramping our style. The girls are not able to make it through the day without a nap and honestly I NEED that time!! The bedtime only takes about 15 – 30 minutes of someone sitting in the girl’s room waiting [...]
Today was a great day. I got to spend the entire day with my family! The people who make life worth living. My immediate family – Bill, Kimberly, Annie and Madeline are a constant sense of joy to me. They are absolutely amazing and I am so excited to be living day to day with [...]
Annie and Kimberly are sleeping in their Big Girl Beds now. Their cribs have been converted into daybeds. It took them over a half of an hour to fall asleep. Maybe tomorrow will be better. Totally dreading naps however. Pretty sure that is going to go worse.
I was sitting downstairs and I hear little footsteps above me. That is right today during nap time Annie got out of her crib!!! I am still freaking out!!! I will post more when I am not going nuts.
Today Kimberly said “Mommy can you find Dora please?” Lately she has been demanding things and it is getting annoying. Today was so nice She knows how to be sweet. We just have to work on getting her to do that more.
Annie and Kimberly went to the zoo today with Grandma and Grandpa Brown. They said they had a good time. I am glad they did. We missed them like crazy while they were gone. Madeline got up from nap and kept looking around for them. She was so happy when she saw them Finally after [...]
Last night we had nachos for dinner. They had beans, cheese, olives, sourcream, and salsa on them. When we were eating them Kimberly kept dipping her finger in and licking it and saying “I am eating the medicine!” We had no idea what she was talking about until she explained further, “Kimmie eating tutu medicine!” [...]
Madeline was rolling about and she sat up! I knew it would happen. She has become quite the scooter and is often up on all fours. Real crawling is not far off! Interesting how Annie and Kimberly react to her now. Often they are super sweet and ready to offer her some of their snack [...]
Of course, we take Annie to see a specialist and now she is very chatty. She is still not enunciating it well but that will come. She likes to do her excercises. Kimmie does too! So cute to hear Annie use her little voice more. In other Annie news. She has not napped in 3 [...]
Annie has low muscle tone. Most likely due to the fact that she has macrocephaly (an extremely large head). This is the reason she drools all the time. She does not have good muscle control over her tongue, lower lip and cheek area. Plan of action is: Get her hearing re-checked to make sure there [...]
Last night Maddie was saying ba-ba-ba-ba over and over. Kimmie was so cute, she started talking back with Madeline. Then she said, “Mommy Mannie wants a baba!” LOL she thinks Madeline is talking about her favorite thing – a bottle.
Tomorrow Annie has her first speech evaluation. She is lagging in enuciation and proper movement of her mouth. Of course this is only by my estimation but I am pretty open to it all. She has so many words but we are unable to understand her. As I was filling out the paperwork I was [...]
Annie and Kimberly received tricycles as birthday gifts from Grandma and Grandpa Brown. The girls have been enjoying them in the backyard until today. When we were at Target I let the girls pick out helmets. Kimberly picked out a sweet pink one with flowers all over it. Annie, on the other hand, picked out [...]
Madeline’s new skills of scooting about and sitting up well come at a price. She is much more disturbed while sleeping. I remember this with the other girls too! Whenever they learn something new they have to try it out all the time, even when sleeping! She is getting up on all fours more often [...]
Madeline has been slightly scooting about lately. Well, yesterday she went full hog! Picture this, Annie and Kimberly snacking on a jumbo size bag of Natural Cheetos! Madeline over 5 feet away from where they are. Next thing I know Madeline is over there and Annie and Kimberly are offering her some snacks too! Later [...]
Today Annie and Kimberly had their first taste of egg nog. They loved it!!! They drank about 6 ounces each. Guess it is time for me to make my holiday french toast.
Today we decided to go to The Picture People and have The Girls photos taken at two years and six months. We were a little late, obviously, but it was close enough for the record books. Our photographer’s name was Miriam and she was definitely the best we’ve had so far (I think). The Girls [...]« Previous Entries
