A Second Opinion

Today Charlee had an appointment with another eye doctor for a second opinion. Charlee is looking at her third eye surgery before she turns 4 years old. He believes the scar tissue from the previous surgery is the cause of her eyes crossing again. I'm not exactly sure when the surgery will take place but sometime during the beginning of 2010.

More details to come.....

Snow White and Cinderella

Snow White and Cinderella

On Saturday, Tiffany and I took Cinderella, aka Eliza, and Snow White, aka Charlee, to Disney Princesses on Ice. It was terrific. The Girls were in heaven and they were in such great behavior. The Babies, aka Natalee and Solomon, were with Grandma and Grandpa.

My First Kiss

After picking Natalee up after work, she proceeded to give me her first kiss. It was adorable. I must have gotten a million kisses from her. I would say, "Give me kissy" and she would. She even gave Charlee her first kiss.

I'm on cloud nine.

Natalee turns eight months old

My little Natalee turned eight months old today. Where did the time go? She was not having the best day because of another cold. She was just not her happy self.

Mommy, I loved the yummy dinner roll. So did Maggie.

I dumped all the toys out. I love making a mess.

I love standing.

What's up with that look, Natalee?
She is becoming Lighting McQueen with her crawling. Here one second gone the next. She recently crawled over to Maggie's water dish and proceeded to dump the whole bowl of water onto herself.
Natalee loves her food. She continues to eat lots of veggies and fruit. Her favorite is still peas and prunes. Cheerios and "Puffs" are also becoming a hit because she has figured out how to pick them up and get then into her mouth. Of course, not all of them make it so Maggie is loving this stage of self feeding.
She loves to play with Charlee. I can tell that she can't wait until those legs start working. The Girls play in Charlee's room at night while I get a few things done around the house. They love spending time together.
I can't tell you how lucky I am to be Natalee's Mom.

Tooth #4

Natalee's 4th tooth (upper) made it's appearance this morning. This one was a little tougher than the other three but not bad. She just gnawed on her binkie and everything else she could find.

We R Wii ing

This weekend I finally decided to buy a Wii. Charlee was excited and couldn't wait for me to plug it in. She was unwrapping stuff faster than I could read the instructions.

Charlee has played Wii a few times at Kathie's so she knew what she was doing. She kept saying that she wanted to play the "Cow Races" I had no idea what she was talking about until Sunday when we found the "Cow Races" on Wii Play. She loved it.

The Wii must have created some new appetite because Charlee had 'Hot Cereal' for all three meals today. I'm lucky that oatmeal was on sale this weekend and I stocked up.

Natalee is getting more and more mobile. She is not crawling forward but pulling herself forward. She is a rolling fool. She is working on tooth #4. This one must be a little more tender because the binkie is her new best friend and mine.

This coming week will be full of adventures: Tuesday we have an appointment at the post office for Natalee's passport.
