Talking on the Phone

Here are today's videos. Apparently Zara is missing Islay...she has been calling her all day today. She is planning on going for burgers (sounds like booger but its burger) and chicken. McDonald's it'll be I guess when Islay gets back. Then she made a phone call to Uncle Jason and pretty much just said HI...looks like we need to work on the conversation part a little more.

P.S. This has been a record month for posts...seems like I have more time on my hands then normal. Finally getting the hang of having 2 munchkins I guess...only took 6 months!

Here I am sitting on the computer while Garrett is at meeting. It seems lately that we are never there together anymore. Kanya has pretty much been sick for 3 months now...she is finally getting better and now Zara has pink eye in both eyes. I look forward to a week without doctors appointments. Anyways here are a couple videos of today. You'll see that even though Zara is not feeling to great she still has a great sense of style. She is wearing my materity swimsuit top. You'll also see Kanya getting the hang of the jolly jumper. It was hard to get a video of her without Zara standing right in front of the camera. She already likes to be the center of attention.

My dear sister-in-law/cousin, Molly, has left town this week with her husband and without Islay. They are down in Houston...Darren has a course or something. And I am SSOOO jealous. Seriously a week without kids how amazing would that be. Don't get me wrong I love my children but a break would be wonderful. So this afternoon while they are BOTH in bed (fingers crossed that this keeps up) I've been pretending that I`m in her shoes and I`ve been shopping. Its been great. I have my cart FULL at Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, Shabby Apple, Crazy8, Janie and Jack, and Fat Face. I might need to win the lottery or something before I can check out but one can dream. I`ve also sat down with my lunch...yes I`m eating in peace and quite and I have my feet up on a footstool. I could really get used to this but today will probably be the only day they sleep at the same time so I`m gonna enjoy this while I can.

Another post about the morning.

Not all mornings are bad around here. I feel like all I do is talk about Zara and how she gets into everything. Last night we put one of those child proof door handle things on the inside of Zaras room so she couldn't open the door and get out this morning. I was feeling kinda bad about that but when she was up and 5:50 this morning and after I seen the mess she made in her room for the couple hours she was up before me and the guilt melted away.

She is going to be moving into the guest room tonight because Kanya is moving into the crib. I just can't imagine what Zara will do to her if they are in the same room right now. It's about time Kanya leaves our room. I was thinking that a 6 1/2 month old baby should probably not be sleeping in a little bassinet anymore. Soon she'll be sitting up in the thing. The guest room is pretty much Zara proof so I'm going to put a little box of toys in there that she can play with when she wakes up. Maybe that will be better. These are pictures of yesterday morning when Zara came to wake me up because she had a 'stinky bum'.

The hat is made of a tank top of Kanya's and the box that her socks go into. She's quite the little fashionista.
Then she had to wake Kanya up of course.

But she didn't seem to mind.

Another good morning.

I have learned the last couple mornings that if Zara lets me sleep in that is NOT a good thing. This means that she has gotten out of bed and gone downstairs instead of coming into my room to wake me up. This is what I woke up to this morning.

This is the computer desk.

This used to all be in the diaper bag.

This was all in Garrett's lunchbox. I like that she 'cleaned it up' by putting it in the bumbo.

She moved a chair to the junk drawer and was taking everything out.

It is a little hard to see but she took a bite out of 3 cookies while she was sitting on the counter.

I had a piece of gum the other day so I guess that means she just had 2 pieces.

She also found this lip stuff. The Blistex has bite marks in it and is now empty.

But doesn't she look so innocent. How could she do anything wrong?

Are you a horrible mother if your thinking of putting a lock on the outside of your childs door?

And then there is poor Kanya who has been throwing up because of a nasty flu since friday night. While having her morning nap she spit her soother out and was sucking on her book instead.

Good Morning??

You know your going to have a wonderful morning when your 2-year-old wakes you up at 7:00 with a mouth full of chocolate. Apparently she decided to go downstairs first before she came to get me up. Now I have no mini eggs to eat. I'm beginning to wonder where my head was this morning because that is not all that she got into. My diaper bag was cleaned out thanks to Zara and she was pleased to find my lotion. It was just about empty when I found her...the lotion was all over her and the kitchen floor. A lovely mess to clean up. A little while later when I realized that I couldn't see or hear Zara, I went upstairs to find that she woke up Kanya and took off all her blankets, her sleeper and diaper. Thank goodness I got there before she was trying to pick her up or something. I think I'm coming around now. I caught Zara getting out of bed while she was supposed to be napping before she could do anymore damage. Maybe Garrett will be home when she wakes up and he'll have a better handle on things.

This picture was taken at Aunty Debbie's on the long weekend. We didn't mean to have it on this setting but it kinda captured why it is so hard to get any decent picture of my girls.

Grey or Gray?

I have grey hair. Lots of grey hair. You know when your in the shower and you grab your hair and some fall out... well I quite often have greys in with that hair that falls out. It doesn't really bother me to much. I feel that grey hair demands respect so I'm looking forward to being grey. People often mistake me for still being in high school so having a head of grey hair should clear that up which will take care of some awkward conversations. Anyways, I've discovered something that does bother me and that is when you find that you have grey in your eyebrows. Seriously I have a grey eyebrow hair. I'm not sure whether I should pluck it or not. Maybe more will just come in. I think I'm just gonna pretend it isn't there. Hopefully everyone else will too.
