Yesterday DD put her tiger headband on that we gave her at the zoo a few weeks ago. Then she put the monkey one on her baby sister. Afterwards in a silly "tiger" voice she says "Tiger is ready for dessert and baby monkey wants some puffs!" Both DH and I were cracking up.
Also, the other day at dinner she called her baby sister chubby, which she is but we are trying to teach DD that we don't call people chubby. So she looks at us completely serious and say "Ok, I'll call her huge." Oh my! We laughed so hard and she stared at us like what's so funny?!? After we settled down we had to explain that huge is worse than chubby.
We did ours last summer and it really doesn't take too long. The lawyer has a list of general questions, that I'm sure he could email to you ahead of time, and we just answered them. Then they typed up a will that we proof read and once they were finalized we meet one last time to sign them. I'm sure you could go in at different times to sign.
I did hear about a website online that you can create documents that are legally binding. You could look into that too. However, I think it's best to do a lawyer b/c then you know it will hold up in court. Plus we had our living will and Power of Attorny done at the same time.View Thread
Congrats! I'm glad to hear that Ava is enjoying her little sister. My baby is 6 1/2 months and big sister still LOVES LOVES LOVES her baby. Good luck adjusting and enjoy the sweet memories your two little girls will make. :c)View Thread
Ok, I'm glad that this is "normal" during sickness. It's just weird that she has no symptoms other than not eating and saying she's tired. I called DCP and they said she's playing and interacting but only ate applesauce so far today.View Thread
We don't normally do anything but we planned our short vacation around this weekend. My parents wanted to do a vacation with us this year and we wanted to go somewhere kind of close since traveling with 2 young children. So we decided to go to Pittsburgh, PA for 4 days. We're going to hit up the zoo, Children's museum, a baseball game and just walking around Station Square (I think that's what it's called). I just hope the weather is nice...not too hot and definitely not cold/rainy. Also, I hope the girls are over whatever they have by then.View Thread
Ever since Saturday morning, DD has barely been eating. She doesn't have a fever and she only had diarreha once but she's complaining that she doesn't feel good. A few times this weekend she would lay on the couch and fall asleep at random times. We've been offering her foods that we know she likes but she takes a few bites then says she's all done. Our baby is definitely sick...fever, cough, runny nose but she's still eating. Not sure what's going on with the 3 yr old though. Should I be concerned? Or just wait it out a few more days? She cried when I left her at daycare this morning but we didn't have much of a choice since the baby is at home sick with her grandma...she can't watch both it's too much for her.View Thread
Good news! Katelyn is back to her normal sleeping routine...at least the last two nights. This morning at 3am I even heard her cry out a little and just stayed in bed. After a few more noises, she put herself back to sleep!! YAY!! I'm so much more rested again after getting a full nights sleep.View Thread
I think you are right about her having to settle herself down and go back to sleep on her own. I would love to ignore her but we have an infant sleeping in the room right next to her. I'd much rather take the 30 secs to settle down my 3 yr old than an hour or more to get a baby back to sleep. Any other suggestions?View Thread
For about a week now, DD wakes up every night screaming. At first we thought it was b/c her CD player broke and she was without her music for a while. However, last night we had it playing again and she still woke up twice screaming. It's weird b/c most of the time all we do is go in and "wake" her, give her a kiss and she's back to sleep. Do you think she's having nightmares? If so, is there anyway to make it stop?View Thread
That's so cute! I'm sure both of your girls will be great big sisters. Alex is STILL the same way with all the baby stuff, she finds the baby toys more fun to play with than her own. The best part is she's so willing to help. Whenever I need something from the baby's room, she's more than happy to go get it for me. We have given her a bib and burp clothe for her to use with her baby dolls. She's also really good at feeding Katelyn a bottle if the baby's in her high chair. Girls are great helpers. I'm sure little boys are too! Good luck everyone I can't wait to hear how everything goes! :c)View Thread
