Cutsie Tutsie

I was considering making tutu party favors for Roe's Birthday dance party. After blog stalking, I came across a no sew tutu idea that this gal (no idea who she is) stated her five year old could do. Yeah, just what I need. Roe is sportin my first creation, I found both a tad bit hideous and a tad bit cute.

Pixie dust

Ms.Sara came over to play this afternoon and when I asked these little ladies what the glitter was all over the floor, they innocently replied, "pixie dust".

A few of my favorite things...

snuggling, more importantly SLEEP!

A 3yr old sense of style, sundresses when its 30degrees

clean babies, how I love freshly bathed babes!

Bye bye table red

Mrs.Kulbiski told me Xander had to move tables today (not the whole class) just him. (He seemed pretty excited about it, not at all concerned) She has informed me he is quite social and has to be reminded occasionally not to be silly during work time. So I am thinking, do I make a big deal of this, should I homeschool him, 8:30-3:40 is a long day, he is 5! I am really struggling with this mostly b/c he is my good kid. He also has obviously been introduced to periods b/c he went a little crazy with them in the apology note.

Tooth gone wild

So after leaving for a few days, I come back and am brushing my kids teeth and happen to find a tooth popping up, but not exactly where it should be, or even close for that matter. I am seeking help from our dentist friends, you can't get braces at five can you?

Our kids were also quite fascinated with the you tube clip, this sent them surfing on other you tube videos that required adult intervention when I found them watching a 3yr old saying she was going to kick your ask.

Operation ferberize

Since Jude is fast approaching the 11month old mark, we decided to get serious about gettting him to sleep through the night. (Most babes are typically around 3mos, so were only 8mos behind).Last nite was the first of hopefully many more nights of straight shuteye without waking to nurse. I wish I could say I got the shuteye too but was instead laboring some new mamas.

Happy Birthday MOM!

Happy birthday to my fabulous mom. Your the best, I love that there is never a dull moment when you are around, your always up on the latest trends and can never talk for more than 2min on the phone before you are making a wrong turn or getting another call. Hope you are having a great time in Vegas, we love you!

Stillman James

How cute is this 9pound 6oz Pond baby?

I had the honors of bathing him up

Henry calls him Dillman James

My amazing sister

morning of induction, wish you could see her feet, her shoes were not going on, her midwife said, "It is time to get this baby here". Did I mention her midwife had perfect hair and makeup, more pics later.

Henry practiced his big brother skills holding Jude.

Dilated 6+cm, on pitocin, NO DRUGS and smiling occasionally.

Duty calls

Here are some pics of when I went to Texas to labor my sister when she had Henry. Stay tuned at Pond Ponderings to get the stats for number 2. Pray for a healthy babe, easy birth, and also for my hubby who will be keeping our older 2.

Baby steps

I have been pondering what to spend my big $25.oo Little Apple dollar bonus from work on. Hmmm. Something for my kid of course, I love my new investment on Jude's pedi peds.

Snow Day= Pancakes

We got a little more shuteye this morning and pancakes instead of toaster waffles on the go. Xander wanted a pancake shaped like a bunny while Roe requested a cheetah girl.

My kids played sooo great together it was such a nice treat. They are so much like Trav & I, we fight(discuss loudly) more when we are apart, weird.

What is that?

Roe came down tonite ready for bed, except for the swimsuit part. When I questioned her about it, she quickly informed me it was her brawl.

The next american idol

Judging from tonites auditions, he could have a pretty good shot.

Happy Birthday babe!

Future wrestler

Xander came home from school requesting he start kids wrestling. NO WAY, first of all he started showing me moves that looked more like Tai kwan do sp?. As much as Trav would love him to be an athlete our start in micro soccer and t-ball, he didn't exactly shine. As much as I want to support him, I refuse to let him roll around on the ground with other boys in tight leos, the cauli ear is another deterrant.
