This. That. The other.........

It's hard to believe we are pushing the 5 month mark with these blue eyed beauties. The time. It is a flyin. Sleep was H.E.L.L. last week with little miss...well we won't mention any names but it starts with an E and her middle name is Claire...anyhoo. Little miss decides she must wake up every 1/2 to 2 hours.....A.L.L. W.E.E.K. L.O.N.G!!! So I got the bright idea of trying to put her in her crib to sleep. You see they have been co-sleeping with me this whole time (i know what you're thinking and frankly i don't care)(with all due respect)(when you take care of 2 babies by yourself. on no sleep. did i mention there are 2 of them)(mr. american academy of pediatrics) now...... what on earth was i saying? So we go about our normal bedtime routine - which is worth it's weight in Starbucks (coffee is way more important than gold these days) -- I give them their bottles then I pick little Edie up and put her in her crib and she just rolled her cute little self right on over and started sawing logs. Then the next night..... oh boy! It worked again. And again........here we are on night 3 and she is in there sawing. GENIUS. I will work on Ella next week -- don't want to push my luck. Now don't get me wrong -- they both still wake up to eat 2 times/night but we all go right back to sleep. And since I have a huge chunk of the bed back I can actually sleep------- it's been a nice change!!! Who knew? The things they don't put in the "how to care for baby" manual. Now on to the good stuff...........
Just for old times sake......aaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
Look at this......... the top outfit (our absolute favorite that we can never part with)(came from Jons sisters)(we have 2) was what they could fit into merely 5 months ago.....and the bottom they can wear now........unbelievable. Right? I mean it's only been 5 months.
Here is the log sawer..........
Oh mommy!!! Come on. I'm naked here..........
The new oilcloth bibs --- we were ruining all our cute cloth bibs with this organic baby food. I don't know maybe regular baby food stains just as bad. Maybe worse. What with all the pesticides....geez!!! We are soooooooooo Northern California. It's organic or nothing for these hotties. Just kidding....well sort of. Our pediatrician, as I have mentioned before, is super laid back. Doesn't get caught up in all the bull floating around out there made up just to scare us new mommies.....BUT when he gave the ok to start solids he recommended feeding them organic baby food and if I make it to use organic veggies. Since he is NEVER quick to recommend these types of things -- I figured it would be good to listen. I planned to make their food but it hasn't quite worked out yet. I needed a good reason to buy that beautiful. new. shiny. cuisineart food processor. right? (have I mentioned how I love the informality of the internet)(can my punctuation get any crazier?)(I LOVE IT)(just FYI..... I do know correct grammar. it's just more fun this way) ..........so to make a short story long. Here are the cute bibs! Notice Rubi in the background patiently waiting for some chin licking the second I turn my back..........
Peek a Boo........ I see you...............Edie Claire!!!
Hey you.....over here. Snap a picture will ya!!!!!!!
We should have named her Johnnie...........spittin image!!!
Poor Rubi........nobody wants to play with her.
blue jeaned baby butts...........not a whole lot that's cuter than this!!!

I swear, sometimes it's just like they are waiting for us to figure out what they want, and *click* it just works when we do!

Maybe you need some *'s with your fun internet punctuation stuff too :)

Oh, an you've got me thinking about the organic baby food now. Brooklyn doesnt eat any food yet but I will be researching.

You have to teach newbie mom to be (aka Me :-) over here about oilcloth bibs...what are those? The ones in the photos sure were cute! I like your punctuation. I never worry about mine..I'm sure I should, LOL! I'm glad you're getting a little sleep, and wow - 5 months - time sure does fly. The E squared little cuties are photogenic as ever :-)
