recipe of the week

Whats for dinner?     Oh how I hate this question and thought.    Although it comes every night faithfully.    We are in such a rut of fixing the same old stuff night after night, week after week.    So with that, we have decided to try a new recipe each week.    Just 1...but it has to be new.     So, I am putting all that pinning on Pinterest  to good use.

So we made Chicken Spaghetti.     (recipe - click here)   It was awesome and fairly easy.   I had all the ingredients in the house so no special trips to the store.   I made it on Sunday and put in the refrig to make monday night.    It does make a lot, so I split the meal into two casserole dishes.    Baked one and froze the other.

Lily Anne ate two helpings and said it was yummy. Olivia ate a few bites but mainly played with the noodles.   

So this recipe will definitely be a keeper in our books.

Life...lost track of this blog....

A friend has pointed out that I need to get back to the blog world. October, November, December, and January....well add February to this list as well..have just been so busy. My girls are growing up and free time at night is gone. We put the girls to bed and run to bed ourselves.

Lily Anne is recovering from surgery last week. 2nd set of tubes and adenoids removed. That is where part of October through December went...ear infections galore. She has moved to the 3 yr old room at school..I am so proud! ham! She is growing up on me so fast. She is on table food after just refusing baby food. Understandable since she has 8 teeth..yes 8! she is walking very well behind walking toy...SCARY! I am not ready for her to walk. I know what comes next.

They have changed so much! Now schedule time to write a blog post on a normal basis.

I have a tripod sitting baby!!   Olivia is just is it possible she is doing this....
She is growing by leaps and bounds these past few days.    Olivia had her 4mo appt this past Monday...she weighs..14lbs even and was 24.25in long.   Both are about in the 50%.    So overall she is doing good.    We have put her on medicine for her reflux...we tried without...but she is arching her back screaming and refusing bottles more and it was time to add soem drugs to help.

Lily Anne aka Miss Hollywood or Drama Queen also had her 2 year appt on Monday.   (yes, we were brave and took them both at once....worked out really really well).    She doing so well!    She weighs 26lbs and is 36in tall.   Learning new things everyday now.   Tells me new words (several) and sings to me (which I am in love with!)

So the potty training...or should I say Diaperless!!!!   We have been in panties 99% with very very little accidents.   She did great over the weekend...even traveling.    She wore 100% panties all day.    My mom was impressed.    She is even doing great at daycare....staying dry all day!
Since Saturday she has been waking up dry!!!   I put a pull up on her..but we say lets put your panties on..."she repeats no pee pee or poo poo in panties mama!"   yup that is right.    I am so proud!!

One down and One to go...

4 months!!!

How is it even possible?   I wonder how time seems to be speeding up more and more as I get older.   Olivia turned 4 mos yesterday!!   Amazing.  She is doing really weel these past few days with sleeping on her belly unswaddled!    I thought I was never going to see the end of swaddling days.   But once she realized sleeping on her belly was has been heaven ever since.

Wordless Wednesday...well almost.

My Girls!

Lily Anne has such a pretty smile.   She will rarely share it with the camera though.

Olivia...always smiling!   Going to be 4 months tomorrow!

But look closely at Olivia...she has a expression of "do it and I am going to throw a punch"

so...Olivia has some chunky factors...I love every bit of it!!! 
Lily Anne was a skinny baby...wait she still is.

Comparison...Lily Anne and Olivia....
So different and yet so alike.

Labor Day???

Stolen yet again from Wade's World, and in honor of labor day ..

How long were your labors?
Lily Anne - about 6 hours with 3 pushes I think.   I know I was told to stop and wait after the first practice push..
Olivia: 31/2 hours with just a few pushes.
How did you know you were in labor?
Lily Anne:  I was induced 5 days early.   My choice.   I was dialated almost to 4cm and I wanted her out!   But when I checked in that night...I was already in labor on my own.   So no drugs other than the epi!
Olivia: It was a normal day.   I got up for a am walk, played with Lily Anne, took a evening (not normal), talked sykpe with my mom, put LA to bed.  Mich started a bubble bath for me, it was going to Mother's Day.   I felt horrible in the tub so I got out.   Crawled in bed and felt hungry at cereal started having contractions and 31/2 hours later we had Olivia.. 
Where did you deliver?
In a hospital bed. Like a normal person.
Umm...Epidurals are the best things ever!!  Lily Anne I got it pretty quick after I got checked in (around 4-5cm).   With Olivia...i got it within 15 minutes of arriving...I was almost 8cm!
So blessed to not have.
Who delivered?
Lily Anne - Dr. Pridgen.   He is my OB...and he is the best and so sweet..
Olivia: Dr. Hollman.   She was great and on call while Dr. Pridgen was out of town.
How about you? What are your numbers?
