Dragon poop

with one comment

Lately, Kai has been working on making sure her dragon (a finger puppet, which she sometimes call her caterpillar) has a clean diaper.  To do this, she has to have the WHITE all-in-one and TWO wipes.  That’s the way it’s gotta be.  After wiping dragon’s butt with two cloth wipes, they go in her plastic shopping bag.  That is because they are very poopy and need to be in there until they can be put in the washing machine.  Then, dragon gets rolled up into the diaper, rocked, and kissed.

Chugging along

love!

Avi

  • 10lbs 11oz!  This boy is big!
  • Reflux – better now, but it still affects him
  • starting to hang out on the floor
  • very tolerant of the hugs and kisses from his big sister

 

Kai

She’s 2.  We deal with her ups and downs and ups and downs.  Lately:

  • she hasn’t needed to be physically handed off to her teacher when dropped off at school
  • she’s started sitting next to the teacher and hamming it up in music class
  • she loves talking to her reflection, they have entire conversations in the car.  There’s a big part of me that doesn’t want to turn the seat around (she’s still rear-facing) because I enjoy her conversations with herself so much

Kai and Avi – quick updates

with one comment

Kai

  • 36 inches
  • almost 30 pounds? maybe? We haven’t weighed her for awhile
  • favorite foods: corn, okra, tortillas, cheese, fruit leather, bunny crackers, watermelon
  • favorite sayings: “mama silly”, “I really know but I don’t know”, “Happy birthday to you… (etc.)”
  • recent activities: making bird feeders from toilet paper rolls, kidnapping Avi’s stuffed animals for her own purposes, taking Elmo around the block in her ministroller

Avi

  • 22 inches
  • 10lbs 4.5oz.  He’s bypassed all the newborn clothes we saved and looks pretty comfy in the 3month-sized clothes.
  • Reflux.  He just started on meds for reflux, poor guy.
  • favorite places: the swing, our bed
  • favorite activities: watching the world go by

 

Kai is very sweet to Avi, and will put her arm around him and give his head a pat.  She will try and talk to him (sometimes I respond in my “fake Avi” voice) but if anybody else talks to him, she will sternly say “Baby Avi no know how to talk, okay?”

We’ve had to carefully go through old clothes, out of Kai’s sight.  She’ll find something cute in the pile and will want to try it on.  Since she’s able to squeeze into some 6-month sized pieces, she thinks that hand-me-downs for Avi are fair game for her…sigh…we did let her wear her rocket shirt all weekend.  It was in the bin of dress-up clothes for her dolls.
