little chef

my son loves to cook. whenever we start to make a meal he pulls out his step stool to help. it is both adorable and somewhat annoying at the same time. his specialty is eggs and pancakes. i do love that he is interested in cooking. i watch cooking shows everyday and it is fun to see him point out the different ingredients the chef is working with. he has a fascination with eggs, oranges, blueberries and carrots. he is only 2 but so far he is a great eater. he always picks out the fruits and veggies to snack on. i should go on his diet! it will be interesting to see if his sister is also a good eater. how nice would that be.

2 months

my baby is 2 months old now. yikes. how did this happen? she is so big. i feel like i am not taking enough photos of her. miles and i took her to her 2 month appointment. the little miss is 9 lbs 14 oz. and 22.5 inches long. wow. she is in the 10 percent range for weight and 50 percent for height. she has gained 3 pounds and 3 inches in two months. mason was very good at the doctors. he just played with the toys while we had to wait. he was very excited by the spider-man puzzle. and kept saying spider. which sounds like spiyer. so cute. dahlia had to get 3 shots. she was very upset and cried. i was good and did not cry.

i have been wanting to write down my resolutions from the new year. perhaps it will motivate me to see them in writing. 

1. lose 10 pounds of baby weight. - to be fair it is not really baby weight. only 5 pounds is baby weight. the other 5  i gained before i got pregnant. i am currently 130. i would love to get down to 115. but i will take 120.

2. start blog about kids. - this is a work in progress. i really want a place to record their development. only interesting to me i suppose. oh well.

3. read more books.

4. fill out kid's baby books. - i actually worked on this the other day. not bad. i just find it a bit dull to do.

5. get rid of most of my cooking magazines. ugh. i have a huge pile i need to trash. it is so hard because they are filled with great recipes. 

well that doesn't seem to hard. i should have this done in a month. i hope.
