it's waaaaay past time...

i have been seriously slacking when it comes to blogging. i will blame the fact that my husband isn't home, i just realzied my driver's license is almost two months expired, i have sewing projects over running my dining room table, i have given up pork and cokes for lent so therefore i have been cooking every meal (to help reduce the temptation AND to save money), and i have been totally enamoured with both vivian and bauer lately. they are both changing so quickly. vivian's vocabulary amazes me...she can say EVERYTHING! i mean if you say it she parrots it (not too good since i am sorta famous for my sailor mouth.) and bauer....big b...what can i say, he is SOOOO sweet. that smile melts my heart. so here are a few of the 231 (yes i counted) pictures that i have taken over the last few weeks:
we spent valentine's with greg and joan. i think bauer might be a pawpaw's boy.
although he does love his gege (contrary to this picture!)
and a few days before we had one of our weekly dinner's with popa and dot dot...ya think he loves that funny white haired man?
and of course even though ibriham says six months, bauer got his first taste of cereal...with a little help from vivian.
daddy bought vivian a surprise...a dora chair. now she can sit by her brother! :) btw...this picture cracks me up!!
today we went to the mulhearn ranch to play...aunt su even pulled the older cousins down to the lake in the red wagon. (see mawmaw, they love it!)
this is miss vivian....on our way to the dillman's for a playdate last week. she said they were her "silly goose glasses". they are really tongs from her kitchen (and, no i don't know how she got them in the car!)
we got to spend some time with cousin jackson, too...isn't he getting big?
just this morning (while i was making vivian's waffles) i caught them being sweet...reading each other stories!
and of course what mother wouldn't love that face? i could just eat him up!!
and this is his latest face....the hmmmm moooooommmmmmmmyyyyyyyyy! i think he was actually trying to get at the camera here. so i hope that this mass photo download has satisfied your appetite for all thing baby day (cathy). i promise to stay caught up from now on! :) ps has spell check stopped working for anyone else on blogger? i need help!

sandra dee & baby b

so the real reason i haven't been in blog world lately is because i have been so busy i haven't had time. clif is still working out of town, a lot (he finally got home last night) and by the end of the day...i am just too pooped!! AND....i have been working on a super secret project....vivian's poodle skirt!! this weekend was a valentine's sock hop party and you cannot find a skirt that i made it! isn't she just too stinkin' cute?

she loooooooved it too. when she was all dressed...she took a look at herself in the mirror and exclaimed "i look good!" yes you do, baby...yes, you do!

and speaking of good looking is the big b. he is currently a bit under the weather (a combo of teeth, ear infection, and respiratory) but he is gaining weight and looking good. he is such a big boy he wants to sit up all by himself and is dying to eat real food....soon buddy, soon!

ALL the babies

i'm not really sure what exactly prompted this...but vivian informed me that ALL the babies wanted to "rest". so she carefully lined them up, giving each a pillow and a blanket, and then said "shhh...they go night night". THIS is the kind of thing that makes having babies worth while! and isn't baby bauer a good sport? :)
