... when your new pair of Nine West shoes become a garage for Lightening McQueen and Tow Mater.

2 Months (and a couple of days)

I am not sure what the deal is, but she really does not like these monthly pictures. She gets the most sour look on her face! But her clothes are awfully cute!

I love this picture because you can see how fat her little thighs are! The higher up her leg you go, the more rolls you will find! It is too cute... and this will be the only time in her life when fat rolls on her legs will be considered cute!

She has also started "talking" and smiling! This is her telling me all about something while getting her diaper changed. Such a sweet face!

This is the best I could do at capturing the smile. It looks a little goofy, but she is happy none the less!

Today was trash day... and of course we were watching the trash man drive down our street emptying trash cans. As usual, when he was finished we said good-bye to him...

The Boy: "Bye bye trash man."

Me: "Bye trash man. See you on Friday!"

TB: "Yeah, Friday."

Me: (seeing a teachable moment) "Yes, Friday. Today is Tuesday... trash day. He will be back on Friday. Do you know what we do tomorrow... on Wednesday?"

TB: (thinking... thinking...thinking) "EAT!!!!"

Food is always on his must be a boy thing.

By the way... he does eat more often than just on Wednesdays.

The PushUp Pop...

Since it has only been about 105 outside everyday for the last couple of weeks... and you can't really "play" outside in this kind of weather... and... well, just because I love my boy... I decided to get him some Push Up Pops for a special treat. He has never had anything like this... just some ice cream on occasion. It was certainly a treat to say the least.

He had a hard time figuring out exactly how to eat such a thing. The really confusing thing to him was that there is a straw in the bottom for the handle. He thought for sure he should be able to suck the ice cream out that way.
We had to basically teach him how to lick it. Here he is practicing sticking out his tongue! We may regret teaching him that later.
He is getting the hang of it.
Yep, now he understands.
This... well, this is when the sugar high hit. He became a man obsessed.
He couldn't get it into his mouth fast enough.
And if he didn't hurry it may very well have disappeared... never to return again! Or so he thought.
The aftermath...
Is it just me or does he resemble Heath Ledger in his last role as an actor... frightening!
Then he realized it was gone... oh the horror.

Finally he accepted the fact that it was gone... it didn't keep him from pleading for more... but eventually he gave up.

The Girl...

Poor Carinna has been suffering from seborrhea (a rash all over her face and top of her head) so I haven't wanted many pictures to remind us of her yucky condition! But lately, thanks to a switch to soy formula and some face cream, she is looking much better! 

Kisses from brother... after he tried to sit on her head about 14 times and accidentally fell on her once... poor girl. I think she deserved the "tenderness".

This is the point at which I had taken too many pictures and ignored her feeding time. She is the master of the pouty lip... oh dear, we may be in trouble!
