New Photos of the KitKat

Here's my little Amber in a new outfit from Gretchen and Brian... Thanks, guys! This outfit is Ed's current favorite for her!

This is another favorite outfit... Another one that wasn't hand-me-down. :-)

And here's one of the only smiles I've been able to capture digitally.

Happy Valentine's Day!!!!!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!
Chloe and Amber

(Note from Amber: Can you believe the things that woman makes me wear? A onesie with a tutu sewn on it? Good Lord, deliver me.)

Amber Post: I am Catching Up!

Yay! Finally a post to myself! I'd like to take this opportunity to share with you that I am catching up to Chloe! I am getting really big and have lots of things I can do now.

I can hold my head up really well (and smile).

I can sit up (when I'm leaning).

It can be challenging, though.

This is Daddy's favorite: I can help hold my bottle!!

(Check out my new hat that Miss Stella made for me - isn't it cute?)

I am doing really well and getting big and strong. I'm eating more, sleeping more at night and I make lots of demands when I'm awake. So, I'm right on schedule, right?

Chloe and Amber Post: Visiting with Grams and Grampa

Chloe: I like it when we get to visit with Grams and Grampa.

Amber: Me, too. Grams likes to naps with me.

Chloe: And I make her cook with me! I also like how Grampa does tricks and stuff.

Amber: Why do you think we don't see them very much?

Chloe: Mommy said it's because they like deer.

Amber: That's weird.

Chloe: I know. Anyway, I sure enjoyed seeing them. Grams said we are her girls!

Amber: That's Grampa. I can't do any of the tricks he's trying to teach Chloe. (But, I don't feel too bad, she's not too good at them either.)

Chloe: What did you say?

Amber: I said, "she's looking forward to Easter."

Chloe: That doesn't make any sense.

Amber: Dude, I'm a baby.

Amber: This outfit used to be Chloe's, but it's mine now.

Chloe: Yeah, anyway. Grams and I like to read books...

Amber: And she and I like to take naps. You exhaust both of us.

Chloe: What?

Amber: Nothing.

Chloe (glaring): I think you're just mad that you are too young for space travel. This is when Grams and I went to the moon.

Amber: You're wearing a colander on your head.

Chloe: It's my HELMET. You know, a positive attitude will carry you far, Amber.

Amber: I am positive! Especially when I'm playing with this awesome toy that Grams bought for me!!

Chloe: That is a really nice toy. I really want to get in there with you!

Amber: Back up. It's mine!

Chloe (privately to reader): Sigh. When Mommy and Daddy talked about being a big sister, they only mentioned the up side. She can be *such* a challenge.

I am a Bad Blogger Mommy


Well, no, not really - I've been busy with snow removal, keeping up with two little ones and setting up my new business. But, that's no excuse. Keep an eye on this blog for LOTS of updates!!!

First up: CHLOE TURNS 2. I can hardly believe it!!
My girl got TWO Dora parties - one at home for family and one the next day at school for her friends. Yes, she's spoiled.

Thanks to Aunt Diane, Chloe has about 18 party dresses. This is our current fave since it came with a match for Teresa. :-) Whenever Chloe sees it, she says, "Thank you, Aunt Diane!"

Mommy's cake decorating and party decor skills are second to none, if I do say so myself.

Ready for school! (and party #2)


Icing rules!
