FingerPaint 4 Daddy

Last week, we celebrated Daddy's 30th Birthday! Wednesday I took Baby T (Baby C was at the babysitters) to pick up balloon, cards, etc... Then, Thursday after the girls' appointment we collected some other goodies. Yep, I took the girls shopping after the appointment that I took them to by MYSELF. We also went to S.ubway for dinner where the cashier gave Baby C a cookie. I let her have most of it since she was so good for her 4 shots. Thursday before nap time and their appointment, we fingerpaineted for the very first time. Baby C had a blast! Good thing the mess was easy to clean up and a bath followed for both girls.

1 and 15 Months Appointments

 Baby C in the waiting room.
Baby T at home after her appointment.

On Thursday (10.20.11), I took both girls to the doctor (1 month & 15 months WBVs). Please note that I took them by MYSELF! When we had orginally made this appointment, I didn't realized that my DH had parent-teacher conferences that night. I tried to change the appointment to another day, but they had nothing open after school (our work) for weeks and weeks.
Baby C waited very patiently in the waiting room. Some of the time she watched the cartoons on the TV, she played with her toys and sat on my lap. When we got taken back, I had to undress both girls so that they could get weighed, temperatures taken, length measured, etc...That was a sight to see. Baby C was walking down the hall with a bow and diaper only pretty much going where she wanted and I held Baby T in her diaper. It was sooo cute!
We then waited for the doctor to come in. Baby C was getting anxious, so I let her have some snacks. She didn't want to put them away when the doctor came in. The doctor checked over Baby C first to make sure her double ear infection was taken care of. She measured 30.5 inches (50%), weighed 24lbs8oz (70%) and her head was 19inches. She isn't really talking more than at her last appointment, so just to make sure her hearing isn't an issue when have been referred to C.hildren's for an audiology appointment.
Baby T measured 21.25 inches (30-35%), weighed 8lbs8oz (15%) and her head was 14.75 inches. She is tiny, so we need to make sure that she is eating at least every four hours. She would go more at this point most of the time. It turned out she really didn't have thrush even though the doctor we saw last time thought she may (better safe than sorry).
It was then time for the shots. Baby C had FOUR. As soon as they were finished, I pulled out the juice I had made her before we arrived. Baby T was next. When she was finished with her one shot, I then started to feed her a bottle.
The nurse was super nice and helped me get Baby C dressed. It helped a ton since she was still upset.
Next time both girls have an appointment, I AM NOT GOING BY MYSELF!

15 Months

I can't believe she is 15 months old (10.16.11)! Baby C likes to walk every...well, more like run! We are still working on going up and down steps. She likes to play with the puppies and they are great with her (especially if she is handing them her snacks). We are continuing to work on her words and she loves book time. Baby C loves bath time and it pretty content even when bath time is over. She is wearing 12-18 months and 18 months clothes. A lot of her 18 months pants are still way too long. She wearing size 4 shoes. Her foot has finally started to grow! Her hair is getting longer, more blonde and curly by the day. She has 14 teeth and doesn't mind us brushing them too much. We are working her letting her brush them also. She eats just about anything and everything. A week or so after her Sister came home she wasn't feeling well.We figured that out when she wasn't eating well. She had a double ear infection. She is still taking a 2 hour nap most days, but is very flexible if we are out of routine and/or out on the town. At night she sleeps in her crib usually for 11-12 hours. Our routine is kind of different right now since I am sitll on maternity leave (some days she is home and others she goes to the babysitter's). She LOVES her Sister and likes to love on her (sometimes too much).

Campground Trick-or-Treat

We live in a gated community where we have access to several ammenities. Our campground is quite popular and  usually very crowded. Some people live there all of time, others are there only during the summer and some come time-to-time. Every year the campground hosts trick-or-treat for our community and surrounding communities (it's an open gate that day meaning anyone can come). And, they GO ALL OUT! Most of the campers come in for that weekend and they decorate, dress-up and pass out goodies. The campground staff and campers also host a haunted house on the grounds. Baby C really didnt understand the concept nor does she get to eat the treats, but she had a blast walking around collecting the surprises! It took us forever to get from one spot to another because she kept wanting to stop and inspect her goodies. Baby T slept much of time, but looked so cute doing so!
