Happy 1st Birthday Baby C!

One year ago, on May 14th, I gave birth to this little bundle of joy and craziness! We are so happy to have you in our lives Sweet Baby C although you do make your parents quite tired a lot of times and try our patience most of the times. Still we can't imagine how our lives were before you were around. Oh wait, on second thought, I do remember. I could sleep a lot more and wasn't awakened at horrendous hours that I thought (wrongly) only other people's children woke up at such times. Oh yes, I have been wrong about a lot with you but that is part of your role on this make sure your mother is reminded time and time again how little she actually does know. I am so blessed to be the parent of both you and your big sister and I thank God every day that I get to spend time with both of you and your father.

Happy Birthday to you! We Love You!

Chocolate toddler formula?!

So I came across the following article in the Chicago Tribune today and I couldn't believe that there is such a thing!  I mean come on, chocolate formula?  Why?  Even if my kid was the queen of all picky children I do not think I would resort to such a thing.  Kids are going to get sweets in a lot of different forms why give them their first tastes of milk already sweetened?  Crazy.  Check out the link below and tell me what you think!

The Yes Family

Yesterday Miss M told me a dream that she had had the previous night.  Here's our conversation:
Miss M: In my dream, we were the yes family.
Me:  What does that mean?
Miss M:  It means that every time the ice cream truck comes by, you would always say yes.
Me:  But do I always say yes to you?
Miss M:  No.  I guess we are really a No Family.  (said begrudgingly).  When I have a family, I am going to be a Yes Family.
Me:  We will see about that.

So....Are you a Yes Family or a No Family?

So this past weekend, Miss M learned to ride a 2 wheel bike all by herself!  She tried it for the first time this Saturday and by Sunday she was going to the park with no problem!  I am so proud of her.  It took me a looooong time to learn to ride a bike and I had many accidents along the way.  One quite memorable and especially painful one was when I accidentally fell into the thorn bush that was in front of our church.  I was just learning to ride and was just starting to get the hang of balancing and then I fell.  Needless to say that pushed me back a bit in my desire to learn to ride.  To this day I am not one to really ride my bike that much.  I really hope M doesn't have any bad falls like me or if she does she will have the tenacity to get back on and keep on riding.

What about Baby C, you ask?  Well, she learned to do peek a boo! all by herself!  She is fully on table food now and can literally eat us all under the table.  Not walking on her own yet but that will come.  She is a super fast crawler so that is all she needs right now.

Between M learning to ride and C learning to walk, my husband and my backs are definitely not what they used to be!
