This weekend I overheard Lily talking to herself when playing....
"this is perfect...just like me"
(how Lily was that?)
two. newborn scent
Friday my friend and across the street neighbor had a baby girl...of course I got to rush over on Sunday when they got home to hold that precious little princess. Little miss Riley was 7 lbs of perfection.... tiny and petite and had these sweet little fingers and toes...and the prettiest little perfect lips. She was so bitty compared to Reid's 10lbs when he was born....yep...I got the baby fever all over again. Maybe this time I won't have a 3m old at birth.
Speaking of Dude Friend....he has 2 little teeth coming in on the bottom. I believe he is the first of the 5 kids to get teeth before 5 months. He has been drooling for months now...and biting everything in sight. Gonna have to train the boy to quit with the biting while nursing...he's doing that scissor sawing back and forth that Lily used to do...in the words of an old friend "Not Goo-gey"
four. love/hate AGAIN
(deep sigh) I ate carbs this weekend....like hardcore. I knew what I was doing...I wanted to do it...and IT FELT GOOD. Sort of...Little man has started puking again. I'm assuming it's something...maybe gluten in the carb? So point of story. Going carb free (well low..I'm having coffee with my creamer this morning) and gonna lose that last 20 lbs and get my boy to quit puking. Anything for my kid. (grins)
five. hello..can you see me?
This weekend my in laws along with hubs aunt, cousin, her hub, and their kids...came to visit for a few hours. They had yet to meet Lily and Reid...(love them)...Later that evening hubs took my MIL to get her an iphone. She's been wanting one and who better to take her than her son. (fyi..my FIL still doesn't get the whole txt'n world so he would be useless)
GUESS WHAT? hubs came home with an iphone for his sweet, wonderful, caring, loving, and always angel of a wife. I was completely overjoyed. I have always wanted one, but always acted like anyone who owned one was silly. He told me he could read through me each time I made fun of iphones ...knowing I really wanted one myself, but acting as if I didn't. (he knows me well)
My MIL and I were having a great time learning how to use our new phones together. We discovered the FaceTime function. Ohhh hello grandparents and family that lives far away...this feature is awesome. I called my little sis and she got to see the little kids...I was giggling like a school girl. Later that night when my inlaws got home I gave my MIL a call with the FaceTalk. She answered and I couldn't see anything. I could hear her, but the screen was black.
me: "GiGi...Can you hear and see me?"
GiGi: "yes, but I can't see anything"
me: "yeah all I see is dark blackness...are the lights on?"
GiGi: "yes, but I still can't see you"
me: "is something blocking the screen?"
(hears my FIL yell in the background)
Old Dad: "yes there is...you've got the phone to your ear silly"
me and hubs: (laughter that doesn't quit)
