Movin' Right Along

Hello family and other loved ones. I am remiss. With the addition of a little nursling baby to an already tired household, I have let certain digital chores slide for a while. Namely emailing and updated this blog. My camera had 457 photos stored when I finally uploaded them to the PC for sharing.
So, my solution for now is the addition of flickr to out websharing repetoire. Here's the link :
Peace out

Okay, So It Really Wasn't THAT Bad...

Ignoring the fact that when we arrived in Allie's classroom, there were already 6 (yes 6!) pink Disney Princess backpacks on the floor, it really wasn't that bad. Mommy concedes - the backpack, shoes, lunch box, even thermos were...cute. And although I didn't know it before hand, it appears the DP backpack was essential to fitting in with her peers. Ahhh, Allie's very first "L.A. Gears" ;) (Amy, tell me you get this refference)

Tacky "Princess Wear"

This could probably go without saying, but I hate clothing with plastic Disney Princess emblems. I similarly despise shoes, backpacks, and lunch boxes of the same genre.

Allie starts school tomorrow. She has a wardrobe of adorable, sophisticated clothing from Oldnavy, Gymboree, even Walmart in stripes, polka dots, solids etc...

Mommy doesn't always get to make the decisions anymore. Allie will be wearing princess shoes (oh, oh yeah, the tackiest ones we could find!). She will be carrying a princess "pack-pack". She will be toting a Tinker Bell lunch bag and sipping from a matching thermos. She will likely be thinking "princessy" thoughts and dreaming "princessy" dreams tonight:

Just Bubby-ling Up

These days are filled with mommy just trying to get a few things done in between Buddy's FEEDING FRENZIES! And he has the thighs to prove it...He has nearly outgrown his 3-6 month wardrobe already (90% of which still bear their tags!). At 2 months, he weighs in at nearly 14 pounds and 24 inches. That's the 90th percentile for hieght and weight - a stark contrast to my little bird (Allie) three years ago!

Since I'm providing the fuel for all of his weight gain, it seams only fair that I should loose a pound for each one he gains right?!! Different blog subject altogether...

Besta please notice - he's growing so fast, he's already out of the little baseball jumper you bought him. So I quickly put it on him during that five minute period he wasn't to chunky, and snapped some pictures...

It's not a camera trick, he gets chubbier in each picture! This one was taken yesterday. Look at those cheekies!

Jump and Shout

We always try to have a family fun day on these Monday federal holidays (last Labor Day it was a homemade slip-n-slide in the back yard). So this Labor Day, although mommy is still a little worse for viral wear, we took a family trip to Jump Zone for Allie. Allie starts one day a week of playschool on Wednesday, and has been sharing her time and parents for 10 weeks now; It was a good day to spend some special time just for her.

The Verdict

For Allison, the jury has been out on the safety and usefulness of mowers since she was around
18 months old. Tonight she reached averdict...

So Happy Together

Yesterday marked four weeks for little brother. So we dusted off the old barnyard playmat and had his very first playtime. Until now he's been largely asleep or otherwise inactive. But he's really starting to wakeup more the last few days... And he already enjoys his big sissy
Allie is as sweet and sharing as she can be. She gives "little bubby" lots of affection and tries to calm him when he's waiting for mommy. Allie has really proven to be not only an awesome big sister - but an awesome, sweet little girl!!
And I am as blessed as anyone can be!

Introducing the Newest Rockstar...

Here he is - mommy's raven haired, seriously contemplative, future rockstar. He's preparing for his career as a musician / social commentator by crying and/or complaining whenever awake. He has a firm hold on the concept of getting what he wants... immediately

He's my beautiful little guy
