ATTENTION: posting all of the things that I would have posted earlier if I wasn’t snuggling with my new little baby all day (and if my netbook wasn’t taken by the Geek Squad).
Cali never liked a Pacifier much BUT if any of her friends have one then she needs one too. And when new baby has one then she thinks she needs one – it’s pretty funny to watch her try to talk and play with it in her mouth – luckily it doesn’t last long.
This blanket was given to baby Rose before she was born but Cali was very possessive of it and wouldn’t let anyone touch it.
I spent my birthday afternoon in the hospital and was too tired to have birthday cake and party afterwards so… we ate birthday cookies thanks to my great Visiting Teachers and I went to bed early.
Here is Cali in her timeout spot! She almost enjoys going there because she gets attention. I am trying to give her positive attention so that she doesn’t need this kind of attention. She is pretty cute in timeout though…
and my husband would not let a birthday go without birthday cake so we did eat it a few days late. BUT I did get out of the party this year which is one reason I am glad to have a birthday baby to share the party with every year and give the attention to someone else 🙂
I have 3 siblings in Provo/Orem right now so we have had many a ‘gaming night’ and I am loving it. We play a lot of ‘Dominion’ and we have recently been into ‘Settlers’ again. I could game every night of the week – soo much fun. The siblings are also on the’ Nettesheim and Crew soccer team’ so we get to see them every Saturday for the soccer game and then if we offer food we can get them to come and stay for a couple of hours before they go back to college life. Â How can you not have fun when kids show up like this?…
Here are my girls. Cali is getting used to baby Rose and enjoys playing with anything that is ‘the babies’. We have 2 mornings a week when it is just the 3 of us girls. One of them is usually a trip to the store and the other a lazy morning with books.
We have raspberry bushes in our garden and they are the best part of that garden. Packer tells me that the reason that some of them are golden is because they are golden raspberries – very smart 3 year old and still our little gardener.

And Following is Cali throwing one of her fits. Her reaction to new baby has been to go into 3-4 whining fits per day… she simply decides she is not happy and then moans for the next 5-25 minutes until we get it figured out. Annoying – Yes. Time to break her of this fun habit – Yes.
Rose is growing like a weed!
Fall Soccer Season is over! Benji, Ben and the Red Dragons had another good season. Hopefully next spring our eldest son will learn to go to the ball instead of stepping away from it.
And baby Rose with her Dad – – Ben was sick earlier this week and we locked him in the room so that we wouldn’t get it. It was a long couple of days without his help, he helps a lot in those hours between dinner and bedtime. Â We ALL missed our Dad time but are glad that we seem to have avoided the nasty sickies.
DID YOU KNOW THAT IT IS OK FOR LITTLE GIRLS TO WEAR THEIR BIG BROTHERS OLD SWEATSHIRTS AS LONG AS THEY HAVE CUTE SHOES ON?
And since we spend A LOT of time in the house with baby Rose we have been reading a lot of books. Cali puts all of her books in her lap and then as she ‘reads’ each one she throws it on the floor. So we often have a book pile on the ground in front of the couch.
Kelsey and I thought baby was sooo cute this day 🙂 ( her mom thinks that every day!)
And Last Night we had a relaxing night watching Game 1 of the World Series, taking turns holding Rose, reading a few books during commercials and eventually falling asleep in the 9th inning…
