double digits

Today, Asher hit the double digit month-10.  It’s a pretty big milestone considering he will be double digit months old until he is almost 8 1/2 years.  (Yes, I know I think of weird things.)  Anyway, still no walking, but his cruising is getting faster and faster, so we’ll see.  Right now he is starting to show his temper.  If I even get near the back door, he starts kicking his legs and whining because he wants to go outside and swing.  And when we take him out of the swing, he starts crying.  So mommy has left him in the swing in the backyard (with the girls) while I cook dinner.  Rilyn may push him once in awhile, (God help him if Ella gets a push!), but generally he just hangs there looking around-it’s a great babysitter and he is safely locked in!  Love it!

genius in training

Why is it that Asher eats more grown-up food than I do?

From February 2009

Call me a sucker, but when I saw this on the baby food shelf, I couldn’t resist.  It promises “fortified with DHA, an omega-3 essential fatty acid associated with helping children gain weight and learn faster.”  I mean, Asher needs all the help he can get since he is the third child.  😉  (Some days I think, “have I read a book to him this week?!?”)

**Not to be outdone by an inferior brand, Gerber has recently come out with ‘Vegetable Risotto with Cheese’ and Plum Organics has ‘Black Bean Tomato Ragout’.

Sesame Street Live

We took the girls last night to Sesame Street Live for their Valentines treat.  They loved it, especially Ella.  I loved watching their faces light up at the music and characters.  Here are some pics.

I promise she wanted to go to the show, but was not excited about taking pictures beforehand!

Rilyn is so excited for the show to start!

a very special valentine

My girls love doing crafts and so grandma got them lots of foam hearts, stickers, and letters.  They have loved decorating the hearts for Valentines Day.  Ella, especially, will spend hours doing this.  Tonight, as I was cleaning up the girl’s craft table, I noticed a heart that Ella ‘decorated’ with letters.  Let’s just hope she still doesn’t know how to spell words or I have a future in AA meetings with her.

You’ll notice the ‘Es’ are really ‘3s’ because now that she is 3, she insists on putting them on every heart she decorates. I think it is her ‘signature.’

I thought I taught you better than this…

I’m pretty much OCD when it comes to matching. Picking out my kid’s clothes can get time consuming because of this, so I always do it the night before. And with girls?  Well the bow, the shoes, and the earrings need to match so that takes a little more of my time. Yesterday, just a little piece of my heart broke when Rilyn showed me her Barbie that she dressed herself.

Here as I sit with only Asher home, I am struggling to refrain myself from redressing that Barbie. Just turn away Julie, just turn away.

Bad timing Barbie

Life has gotten a lot harder now that I have a full blown crawler, who pulls up on everything, and is about to cruise.  (I saw him standing by himself yesterday for a second too…)  Asher has already eaten half of a dead spider, (I got the other half out with my finger), and half of a clear Christmas tree light.  I’ve also fished out of his mouth one of the girls rings and a carpet staple.  Anybody want to take bets on how soon we will go to the E.R.?  I just can’t watch him close enough with the other 2 girls running around.  So, this brings me to the ‘bad timing’ part.  My dear mom decides that it is a good time to clean out a closet full of my old Barbie stuff at her house last week.  Wonderful!  If only she decided to leave it at her house.  But no!  She brought it all to my house.  Of course, the girls LOVED it and still do and I did get a kick out of seeing my old stuff, but now not only do I have to watch Asher to make sure he doesn’t eat another spider, NOW I have to make sure he doesn’t eat any of this stuff that has been strewn throughout our house.

From January 2009

These are just the ‘accessories’ for Barbie (which are all, conveniently, 1 inch big).  We even have Barbie silverware that is the size of staples! I know I’m going to find a Barbie high heel in Asher’s poop one of these days! (If so, you know I will blog about it!)

From January 2009

These are some of my favorite Barbie things now passed down to my daughters. (The black case and car were my mom’s when she was little!) And yes, I kept all my stuff in their original boxes, didn’t you?!?




My photography business!
