Thursday night we carved pumpkins in Gilroy. Mina had a blast. I copied Elena and got stickers for her little pumpkins hoping she would let Tim & I actually carve ours without getting in the way too much. I sort of worked. She kept holding my arm while I was carving hers but it was her pumpkin so I guess she was entitled to "steer" me.

Caet is starting to smile more and more when she isn't all colicky. Tonight wasn't too bad.

Caetlin's 2 week check up

Little Miss Caetlin now weighs 8lbs. 7oz. & is 21 inches long.
The Dr. says everything looks good and she is right where she is supposed to be development wise.
She is starting to smile, which is so super cute.
This morning for breakfast I made some yummy cranberry apple pancakes with a cinnamon caramel syrup and bacon & eggs. And then Tim, being the wonderful husband that he is, cleaned the kitchen up. We are planning to have a semi relaxing day. We are going to go shopping at Kohl's, take Mina to Chuck E. Cheese for a little while (extra emphasis on the little part) and spend the rest of the day in Gilroy making chile verde and playing Scrabble. Greg's tried to put down Quwell last time we played. Let's see if he can top that today. =]

Okay so it's been awhile since my last post. Sorry everyone, I'm still kind of getting the hang of have 2 little girls that need attention. My clean laundry has been piling up too. I hate folding it. I've pretty much been spending every minute not taking care of the girls, taking care of the house. Today I'm on strike. The chores can wait. I need some quiet time just for me.

So we have been having a rough few days. Mina has peed her bed 3 time in the past 2 days. Yeah. And this morning she peed all over the kitchen floor. And then pooped in her pants 5 minutes after I asked her to sit on the potty. It sucks because I've been nursing Caetlin so much it's hard to catch her and force her to sit on the potty. Also she has been a huge brat since Saturday. I'm not sure if it's a reaction to Caetlin or not. I'm trying to figure out how to get her back to her normal sweet self. But I'm being honest here when I say I've had no patience with her today. I think I'm a little bit depressed. I'm overwhelmed. If someone wants to come fold my laundry that would help out big time. I'm just sayin'.

Anyways, today we went to the library because Mina wanted a Curious George DVD, when we got home we hopped in the stroller and took a quick walk around the block. It was nice. I know we need the rain and all but I hate it. Mina goes psycho stuck in the house all day. But we did have fun finger painting yesterday. I love the Color wonder stuff but the price doesn't thrill me so much.

Yikes I have to go pick up Tim in 14 minutes. Okay so Caetlin is doing really good. She eats like a champ and is starting to fill out. The NB clothes fit her fairly well now. She's not drowning in them anymore. Her next Dr. appt. is on the 16th. I'll let everyone know how it goes. & I will try to post pics tomorrow. XO

Our not so lazy Saturday morning

Last night Tim & I planned on having a nice lazy morning before heading to Gilroy to work in the garden. I guess the girls never got the memo. We had a cranky Miss Mina rolling around on our floor asking for chocolate milk & fruit snacks at 7:45. We convinced her eggs, bacon & whole wheat apple pancakes with a cinnamon caramel sauce would be much yummier than fruit snacks. So we had a delicious breakfast. Mina helped make the pancakes. And than she devoured almost all of her food. Caetlin took a nap while we ate and woke up just in time to catch a little sun through the kitchen window. And make a huge messy diaper. Thank goodness Mina is such a good helper and ran to get wipes, a diaper & an alcohol pad for Caetlin's belly button.

It is crazy how similar Mina and Caetlin look. I have a feeling in 10 years I'm going to have trouble figuring out who is who in the baby pics.
