8 Months Old

So little Miss Caetlin is growing up so fast. It's amazing to see her doing big girl things. Like standing. Yep. She stands all by herself. It kind of hilarious because she's so itty bitty. She is getting pretty good at eating too. She feeds herself which is so convenient for me. This morning, she took a step. One little itty bitty baby step but a step is a step! I'm so excited! & terrified.

She can also say Dada, drink through a straw, sign milk - but she kind of signs it for a drink in general. She loves her big sister and follows her around. When she's cranky I just ask Mina to laugh at her and Caet just starts smiling and bouncing. She is also a big fan of crawling outside as soon as the door opens.
She has 2 bottom teeth and a top tooth about to come through.

I officially declare it tea for Tuesday!

Tea for Tuesday! Today we did tea at a friend's house. Mina helped make scones again this morning. They turned out scrumptious.

After tea we headed to the park down the street.

After dinner we went for a family walk since my hubby's class was cancelled.

MTM birds and nests

Tea for 3

Today we had tea. A princess tea party in fact. Cause Mina wanted too. We even dressed up all fancy. So we made scones & smothered them with lemon curd. We made some lavash turkey rolls with cream cheese and spinach. Where the heck does lavash originate from? Cause those people are genius. Yum.

I just feel like updating.

These pics were taken 2 years apart almost to the day.
Yes those are the same sweaters. Mine and theirs.

Today was a good day and a horrible day. I walked 1.5 miles with my fitnessfriend and our kids, jogged a mile on her treadmill whilst gossiping about our hubbies. Made dinner and lunch at the same time. Declared it officially summer because I ate an artichoke for lunch. Cleaned the kitchen AND the floor. Babysat fitnessfriend's 2 kiddos(3 & 6) for 3.5 hours. Made cookies with ALL the kids. Acquired another child so her tired (PREGNANT!) momma could put away groceries and make dinner. Sent fitnessfriend's kids home to her hubby. Fed Mina, fed Caetlin. Stopped a Mina meltdown and took acquired child home. Bathed babies. Threw duvet, duvet cover and blanket in the wash. (Mina peed in my bed last night. Luckily on daddy's side. hehehe) Read 5 bedtime stories. Put babies to bed. Was bitten by a rabid 2 year old. Put said 2 year old on time-out and then sent her (back) to bed. PEACE & QUIET! Read everyone's blogs. Typed this. Yeah, I'm tired. I'm just waiting for the hubby to get home from school so we can talk. Yep. Ummmm. Yeah.

MTM + a neat MTM project

Apple wedges, lollipop
peanut butter for dipping (fingers of course), Annie's homegrown organic white cheddar bunny crackers
fish and a homemade egg roll.
And we did the little flaggy project from another mom. It's pretty cute. I think our tin was fancy today.

She ate almost everything. There were a few apple wedges and bunny crackers left. So once again MTM (& mommy) win. Yay us!

And even the baby enjoyed lunch. She chowed down on egg roll filling.

Green things

Our little container garden is doing good. I'm so excited about it. Mina like to help water.

Our big Roma tomato

Everything! (lettuce, basil, carrots, radish, green onion, tomato & zinnia)

Green Onions & radishes

New summer clothes.

So I'm not a huge fan of matchy-matchy clothes for kids but Mina is dying for matching outfits. So I give. If it makes her happy (& Caet doesn't care at all) why not? Plus they do look kinda cute. They now have matching dresses, matching ice cream shorts and a matching outfit. And Caet snagged some pink shorts just for her. I paid $1.25 for each pair of shorts, $2.80 a piece for the shirts and $5.60 each for their dresses. Got love Target's clearance rack.

Nastiest Car Ever

I feel the need to shower just looking at this.

MTM Cinco de Mayo

Breakfast of champs. Well Mina did eat two packets of oatmeal and some fruit before hand but you get the idea. I only had 5 or 10 churros and 2 strawberries. And it's a total mystery why I didn't hit the pavement today.
I made some delish churros from the recipe found on Momma's Playground. It was so good. I'm totally making more on 5/5. I'm even gonna try some gluten free for my FIL who I love oh so much. We also had onion and bell pepper quesadillas for lunch (and by "we" I mean the people who can eat diary products) but I'm currently having trouble locating my camera. so yeah. I'll post those pics whenever I find it.

oh so awesome link that will take you to even more awesome MTMs.
