Big girl!

I will gum this pretzel or die trying!

I swear that RainbowBaby thinks that she is a big girl.
She was very offended today when the big girls had pretzel rods for a snack and she got broken up animal crackers. I picked her up out of her high chair and she grabbed mine.
It took a while, but she eventually took the entire thing out!

Baby love

Want to see something cool?

Of course you do, right?

I have almost the same picture with all four of my girls!

Here are TinyDancer and I when she was just a few days old -

Here I am with SleepingAngel when she was 11 days old -

This is the closest one that I have with EasternStar. This picture is from our first trip to see her. It was our last day and she was not feeling well - she had a fever and a runny nose. For most of our visit, she just nuzzled in my shouler. She was 11.5 months old in this photo.

And last, here I am with RainbowBaby just a few days ago - at 9.5 months old -

Funny how without trying we've taken almost the exact same picture!

Notice anything new about the layout of the blog?

Don't hurt yourselves now! 8 )

Look to the left - see the countdown clock?

Things have been rough the past month. Stranger has worked almost everyday since the beginning of the year. Bluch. Stranger worked 27 out of the 31 days of January and he is working everyday but 3 in February.

Seriously. This is ridiculous. I'm SO OVER training. Add to that that I didn't even want to do this in the first place AND the emergency medicine lifestyle is the anti-Me.

Seriously. I need a schedule. I need consistency. And so do my kids. EasternStar has asked for Stranger all day for the past three days. Daddy home? (When is daddy coming home?) Daddy snack? (Will daddy be home for snack?) Daddy lunch? (Will daddy be home for lunch?) Daddy nap? (Will daddy be home after nap?) and on and on and on and on......

So, to make the bleak seem less ..... bleak - I added a countdown to the end of training. A year and four months is a long time - but it will be nice to see the counter go down.

Here's hoping we make it!!

Can I add one more Blech!

Working girl!

Know the *only* thing that I miss about working full time?

Well, besides the paycheck?

Sick days!

Every girl in our house is sick - either with a fever or teething or a cough or a runny nose. Some of us have all of that or a variation of that. Blah! I miss being able to drop the kids off at daycare and come home and get better!

Everytime I bend over my head spins and I cough like a 90 year old smoker. And with a 2 year old and a 9 month old, you bend over a lot!

I want a sick day!

Or at least my mommy! 8 )

Daisy Scout

TinyDancer recently had her pinning ceremony for her Daisy scout troup. Her sisters were pretty excited to stay up past their bed times:

Well, perhaps one more so that the other!
How cute is TinyDancer in her uniform? She looks so big! I love that the patches are iron on now as opposed to having to be sewn on. My sewing maching and I have a love-hate relationship. I really, really want to love sewing, but my sewing maching hates me. I'm glad that I don't have to figure out how to sew on circular badges!

Here is my big girl getting her pins!

Happy February!!

Hopefully my blogging vacation is over and I'll have more time to update everyone of the fun stuff that is happening at our house. Yesterday I came home from work to three little girls all dressed up and ready for some fun! Here is a shot of one of them -
