Pretty Baby

I'm always a little bit reluctant to post pictures of one child and not the other but this set was so good that I couldn't resist.  Truth is, Gwen is blessed with being both gorgeous and photogenic.  Maddy is also quite beautiful but her beauty is easier to see in person and harder to catch on film.

UPDATE:  That's not a bug Gwen's eating (below).  It was the plastic coated wire the previously held a toy securely to the packaging.  As you can see, she's enjoying the wire much more than the toy!

Beautiful

It was nap time and Gwen looked so pretty with her hair pulled back with the turquoise headband that I couldn't resist pulling out the camera.  She was in a great mood and the camera loved her!

I took 69 photos in the hope that 2 or 3 might turn out well enough to post on the blog but, honestly, all 69 are amazing.  It was hard to pick just a couple to post.

Baby fat

Weight_smWe're all feeling much better and just about back to 100% but poor little Maddy lost nearly all the weight she'd gained in the six months she's been in our family. 

When we met her, Madeline, was barely two years old and barely 20 pounds.  She was so skinny that I gasped when I undressed her for the first time.  So, it was really frustrating that she was back down to 22 pounds again.

We've worked really hard to try to pad her tiny little frame.  She's not a terribly picky eater -- it's just that she doesn't eat much (a few bites).  We let her drink as many bottles of Pediasure as she wants and try to sneak calories into her diet everywhere we can.  If you have any idea what else we might offer her, please post a comment and let me know!

UPDATE 3/15/07:  Maddy is up to 24.5 pounds this morning.  It's so nice to see a bit of flesh on her bones!  Gwen is also up from this time last month.... she 31.5 pounds.  You can't offer fatty snacks to one without offering it to the other!  :)

Happy Birthday, Dad!

Dads_visit_sm

It's been fun having you around for the last four days, Dad.  Sorry we were all sick and not very social!  Too bad the weather didn't cooperate either!  But, even with all that, it was really wonderful to see you!  I hope you have a comfy flight home. 

Happy Birthday!  We love you!!

Wild Card

We're all sick and I don't have the strength to pick up the camera.  Even if I did, we're all mucous covered and puffy eyed and look like crap.  Some of us smell like it too.

If I can't post the FFFF challenge tomorrow, please feel free to consider it a wild card challenge and pick your own theme.  I may borrow it for a future challenge.

Uh Oh!

Sick_gwennyLook who woke up from her nap with a fever. 

I really hoped Gwen wouldn't be infected with whatever Maddy has but it's happened.  Maddy feels better but now Gwen is miserable and I think my throat is scratchy.  I'm sure I'm next!

I spent nap time working on a new banner for the blog.  I think it turned out pretty nice!  I was going to post a picture of our new 10 inch DVD player that was installed in our minivan today.  But Gwen woke up with a fever and it's so rare to see her unhappy that I put her down for 10 seconds to snap this picture.  I'm sure she didn't appreciate that at all!   

No time to play on the computer now that nap time is over and there are runny noses to tend to wipe and grumpy little girls to snuggle!
