Stuck inside...

We are pretty much stuck in the house all winter, because we can't risk getting Caitlyn sick. We can't go anywhere where there are other kids, and we can't have other kids over to our house. So I am bored! Her high-risk doctor told us that she has a 50% chance of being hospitalized because of RSV or Flu this season.

So...I am now trying to think of lots of indoor activities I can do with a 2 year old and a 4 year old. If you have any ideas please let me know!!!

Yesterday, we made pumpkin bread in our pajamas :)

9 pounds, 10 ounces

Everyone probably remembers this picture of Caitlyn. It was the day after she was born, and she has Brian's wedding band around her foot.

Well, here she is at over 9 pounds, the same size Alex was when he was born. Her feet are still small, but much bigger than before. The ring now fits over her toe!

Top 5 Things I Hate to Admit

Okay, I was tagged by Molly a LONG time ago. But at least I'm getting around to it!

1. I have not worn my wedding/engagement rings for a year now. Mostly because they didn't fit while I was pregnant, but also because I'm lazy. I finally decided to put them on today.

2. I pile the dished up all day long, and then let Brian come home and do them. He's such a sweetheart!

3. I hate talking on the phone and emailing. Don't ask me why.

4. If my kids are watching TV in the car when we arrive home, and I need to get something done quickly I'll leave them in there with the doors open so I can get it done. Usually it's putting the groceries away.

5. I eat a lot of junk food, and I never exercise. I'm going to start exercising this week.

That's it...and I'm not going to tag anyone else, because I hate being tagged.

Google Reader

If you don't already have Google should get it. It's a lot like Outlook Express, where you can tell right away if you have new emails, except it's for blogs and it lets you know right away when someone updates their blog. Just enter all of your friends' blogs and you no longer have to jump from blog to blog to see who's updated.

It's Been a While

Sorry...things have been pretty crazy around here. Along with Caitlyn coming home, we've had our share of regular bloody noses and one trip to the emergency room. I will try to be better at posting more often.

Caitlyn is up to 8 pounds, 11.5 ounces!

Here is one of the bloody noses from the month...

I never even had time to take a picture of Aidan's forehead, but he sliced it open pretty good by jumping off the couch and hitting his head on the play kitchen. I had to call on the neighbors to come over and watch Caitlyn and Alex while I took Aidan to the emergency room on a Sunday. Brian wasn't home, which is just my luck. Thank God for great neighbors!

Here's Aidan at the UI Homecoming Parade. He had a lot of fun handing out candy for the Brian White campaign.
