Fashinista & Grump-a-lump-a-gus

My girls are so mature, Kate reached her 6 week growth spurt today (a week early) and along with it came a serious case of the grumps. And Kendall has become a little 16 year old over night (fashion-wise). If you put a cap on her she turns it around, sometimes at an angle. She puts her sunglasses on top of her head too.

I have been slacking when it comes to taking pictures. I did pull out Kendall's pool this weekend though. I was brave and didn't put a swim diaper on her and was enjoying the little bootie shape of her swimming trunks...until I noticed that she was squatting and making suspicious noises. Didn't enjoy cleaning that one up.

We had a nice surprise visit from Jenn and Justin on Friday. Kendall wouldn't talk much while they were here but now, as I type this, she is sitting on my lap and saying, "Sus-tin, friend"
Kate had her one month check up last week. She gained two pounds and two inches!! I never thought I would say this but one of my girls is in the 25th percentile!! To quote the doctor, I have a "fine specimen of a one month old". He was surprised at her muscle control and told me not to leave her on the bed unattended because he wouldn't be surprised if she started to roll over soon. He was also shocked to hear that she usually only wakes one time at night. She is a good baby, very laid back but I also think that I am much more laid back as well and she senses that. She doesn't have an evening fussy time like Kendall did but she does behave differently at night (doesn't nurse as well, wants to be held...). But I can't complain!
Kendall is adjusting pretty well, she has her good days and bad days but always loves her little sister. She gives the sweetest most gentlest kisses to Kate (and follows it up with a grab for the pacifier). She has reached the oh so fun stage in toddlerhood where saying something one time is good but saying it twelve times in a row is so much better. Ah, good times. I'll try to take more pictures for some reason my hands just always seem to be busy with something else though, curious.

Tick Tock

TIME: Where has it gone?? Can you believe that as of tomorrow we will have had Kate in our lives for an entire month? She is so sweet and I love to see her and Kendall together. I don't know which one is influencing which but they are sticking their tongues out at each other in this picture:

I know that I need to adjust this one in Photoshop but I love it and really I just don't have the time.

Kendall tried out a new hairstyle today, it didn't last long but is s

till pretty darn cute.

And finally, I'm craving time to create something. I have some super cute pictures I want to scrapbook and a couple of ideas of other things I want to make.

I was able to sit down tonight and read a few blogs that I like. I love blogs. They are great for keeping family up-to-date but I love how they allow you to see the connections that we all have. Below is a quote from a blog I read today that really resonated with me. And then, a few pictures of my fun little girlies (click to enlarge). Again, life is good.
But it is in these contrasts that I know even more where I belong. Holding this
7lb. 10oz. lump of love who looks at me with her gray eyes in the dark and knows
that it is my job to keep her safe. And that I will. So, even if all I
accomplish today is tidying up, holding a sleeping baby, working with Elliot on
hugging Lucie gently, thanking my sweet husband for helping me through another
day, that will be enough, won't it? Just acts of love, really.

Life Is Good

Life is good, really good. Kate is fantastic, she very rarely cries and I have to wake her up to feed her nearly every feeding! She is such a mellow laid back baby. Kendall loves her new sister but is understandably experiencing a little bit of jealousy. But really, all is good! Kate had her first photo shoot this weekend. Here are a couple of my favorites and a couple of "bloopers"

Hey, can you hear me?

Oh brother, stop taking my picture

Wait, wait a minute, what is that smell? Is that me?

Ahhhh, sleep
