The lazy days of summer.

That phrase couldn't be farther from the truth. We are so freaking crazy busy these days, it's insane. I blogged all about our last few days on my other blog, so I won't repeat it all here.

My kids are growing up. Here is photographic proof...

Let's see. Karl's 2nd tooth is still not popped through, but his first one is pretty far in. It's so cute. And he's bit me twice now. Rad. Biting isn't a big deal, but it does happen.

Karl's new trick is sitting up. Finally. This boy is ~slow~ with his milestones! But perfectly okay with me.

Ella and Allison are awesome big sisters.

Ella has the biggest smart mouth EVER. I'm filled with joy while it also drives me fucking insane.

Allison is still my little tough girl who will also fall to pieces if I ask Ella to get a diaper instead of her. A tough drama queen. What a combo.

Whoa. What the hell do we have there?


One is defiitely through, the second looks kinda through, but not full through yet. Bottom two teeth.

damn it.

I really, really, really love my babies toothless. They're just so damned cute! (no, it has nothing to do with nursing. Nursing babies with teeth is pretty much no difference than nursing babies without.)

A short picture post ...

I'm trying to clean up my phone and I'm uploading tons of pictures. Here are a few of the newest ones ...

I remember when I was ~so~ excited with Ella to start solids, which I started at a little while after 4 months. And then I realized what a pain in the ass it is to do! So I waited until 6 months with Miss Allison. With Karl, we started very slowly, not really doing anything scheduled until just recently (he just turned 6 months). Anywho, here is Karl, very happy to eat anything orange. (actually, he eats absolutely everything with pleasure!)

For 4th of July, we stayed in Salida, which is a little town 2 hours from where I live. My in laws have a ginormous house there and this picture was taken in their front yard. From the left is Allison, Ella and then one of their cousins.

Ella. I just don't have words for this one. True, I agreed to buy this hat for her, but you have to understand, it's imperative she likes the hat we buy every year so she'll actually wear it when out in the sun. It's actually quite cute without the turned up brim and sunglasses.

This is Allison in the car driving up to Salida. She has a funky "camera smile", this one being the best I can usually get out of her without it looking crazy forced.

All karl want to do is stand. He locks his knees and as soon as he's standing, he's content. Of course there is no balance whatsoever, it's the same "baby stand" most babies have, but he loves it. It's hard to get a picture though. He holds himself completely under his own power, as he can stand with just holding onto my fingers, but this picture makes it look like I'm pulling his arm out of the socket. I'm not though, I promise!

And finally, here I am with no makeup and hair pulled up. Oh yeah, I'm super hot. I know. No need to even tell me. ~wink~

I've got lots of new pictures to post, but we'll just do a few each day. A few updates for each kid:
~ Karl. He's 6 months old. Already. No idea how time went so fast.
~ Allison. She's still total drama queen, being reduced to tears if I ask Ella to get me a kleenex instead of her. Oy vey.
~ Ella. She starts kindergarten on August 10th. Oh. My. God.

One picture

Here is a picture as my promised update. The news on my other blog has me, um, a bit freaked the fuck out right now.

But here's mr karl eating some 4th of july treats. Blurry, but you can see his blue eyes!

You'd think I'd have more time on my hands.

I will update later. Promise. ~wink~
