Kitten Sandwich

I need to go to bed, but I just ran across this video in an article on the history of Swedish Fish (yes, this is what I do with my free time after the girls go to bed) on, and I just had to share it here in light of my previous post about Maggie's Catburger. Bon Apetit!

PS - Mike wants me to add that he LOVES Swedish Fish.

Maggie Sez...

... I love Earl (pause) with ketchup!

This comes after her recent Catburger Incident, when she raced around the house with the toys pictured below yelling "Catburger!" each time she ran past me.

We're keeping a close eye on the cats for now, but when should we really start to worry?!

My mom has demanded (via phone and facebook) that I get my rear in gear and put up some new stuff on here. Yes, mother.

Last night, Mike carved the girls' pumpkin. Maggie requested triangle eyes, a happy smile and 10 teeth. It's got nine teeth and looks a bit as though it's a victim of British dentistry practices, but she had a marvelous time watching Daddy scoop guts, so it's all good. She insisted on going out on the front porch to check on it this morning right after she woke up. Still there!

As for Kate, she's been up for an hour or so the past few nights hollering crazy stuff from her bed that sounds very much like "Hey Turtle" and "Hey Daddy." She also has possibly said "Bye bye" a couple of times now. Nothing in the Mama category though, of course! I also bet she'll take a step here any day now. She can zip around the house hanging on to the furniture pretty well, so it's only a matter of time. Where'd my baby go??

... My tight end just made a huge gain!

No more donuts for you Mr. Fowler. :)

High Five!

Last night was our first attempt at going all night without a diaper and it was a success! Maggie was as proud of herself as we were of her this morning. Fingers crossed that it continues to go so well.

Kate Update

Kate's 9 month check up was today and she is weighing in at 18 lbs. 14 oz. (51st percentile) and about 27 inches (82nd percentile), so she's long and lean and doing just great. She and Maggie both got flu shots and Kate had to have some blood tests for anemia and lead, but she survived. Both girls took excellent naps this afternoon, of course!

Maggie Sez...

(in the car on the way to the airport - this is a bit of an oldie but a goodie)

...We're going to work.

Me: No, we're going to the airport to fly to Oklahoma. Remember?

Maggie: Daddy goes to work.

Usually, but today we're all going to the airport.

Daddy works and Maggie plays.

What does Katie do?

Katie wahs.

Like the babies on the bus - wah, wah, wah?

Yes. Daddy works, Maggie plays, and Katie wahs.

What does Mommy do?
