a mess on my shirt

The shirt I have on now, a blue maternity shirt, has spots all over it. Some are from the spaghetti sauce I made last week and forgot to shout it out. Some are from today's lunch, mine, and Anna's. There are a few snot stains from Anna's perpetually runny noes, this week. Lastly, there is a really big one from Vaseline I smothered on Anna's face, cause it is so sore from being wiped all day.
I am a mess, and I am so tired! I am trying to get up early in the morning to have a good walk with my dear friend and neighbor. (in response to the maternity shirt I am still wearing, a year later.) The past few weeks have been rough, and the early mornings are kicking me in the butt. My whole walk I feel like I am walking in a swamp. IT'S HARD THE WHOLE 30 Min.

But right now, I am laughing, so deep in my heart and stomach, it feels good!
I put Carol for a nap, who hasn't slept for her nap in about 2 weeks. 1.5 hours later she is giggling every few min. Every two min. I hear a little giggle. When I finally peeked in her room she was singing and her arms were lifted to the sky, and she was saying "Haloola, Haloola" (ha lay lu ya).
She is a good girl, even when I am a tired mommy and I have to leave the zoo before we saw the zebras.

This is the first time Carol set the table. I gave her some forks and knifes and said, set the table for dinner. She said "mommy, Carol, Daddy".

This is when we set out the pin wheels that aunt Jill gave us. What a great time!

Having babies does a number on your body and emotions. Children seam to have miles more energy than me. But we sure do enjoy each other. And the good news is!!!! Carol loves me, and thinks I am funny and thinks I am a great dancer! EVEN though I am wearing a maternity shirt with weeks worth of spots on them, and haven't showered in days. Today at the Zoo, when we were talking to the ducks and eating a snack Carol said... "Mommy....." - Yes Carol "uboo mommy". (Love you) with a hand on my leg. Come on... you would never say that to me if you were at the zoo with an un-showered, spots on shirt lady. =) She is so gracious!!

Uncle Ron and Aunt Krista

WEW, I know I am behind. It was Late Auguast when Daves Uncle Ron and his wife Krista came for a little visit. It was wonderful to meet them, and for Dave to reconect with them, it had been several years since they had talked.

I love to eat! I think Dave Loves to eat........ Carol... Well she likes to eat if its what she wants.... Kind of like me.... Anna on the other hand has fallen from another tree. Anna HATES eating! She has since she was 4 months old. I have to FORCE food down her. Now she is 9 months old and I feel lucky if she will eat a cheerio or a baby puff. TODAY I got some Kix cereal. SHE LOVES IT!

And Carol, one thing that she likes to eat is popcorn. "Cocoon" I was hoping to take Carol to ride some horses this afternoon and it didn't work out. I did my best to distract her from the horse ride. I painted her nails, baba took her to get a movie and say hi to some neighbor horses, and then she got to watch a movie and eat some popcorn! She had some dinner and a bath then hunkered down with a HUGE bowl of popcorn. After about 30 min she was calling out.... "all done".... Baba found the bowl empty and asked if she wanted more.... Yes... She did.
She ate a WHOLE nother bowl. I went in to put my little girl to bed and found a HUGE BELLY!

I have happy girls and they are so much fun!
