Day 7 and 8

Ever since Ani got a princess dress Kai has been talking about wanting to be a princess. I think that after finding out that the costume is itchy, he hasn't been so interested in wearing it again. You should've seen his face when he saw the costume, he was pumped. Can't wait to show him when he's older:)

Kai trying out his big boy bed. He thought he was going to sleep in it but when I went to get him up from his nap, he had migrated back to his toddler car bed. We're in no rush moving him into a big boy bed but if we can get him into it, then we can move the train table into his room in place of the toddler bed.

My 400 page blog book came after just one week! I am impressed with

(no idea who these kids are...we're just going to photoshop Kai's head onto that boys:))
We went and saw Dora and Diego at the mall. I was too late to get tickets (which would allow him to get his picture taken with them) but that was probably a good thing as the wait was at least an hour. It was pretty lame as they didn't have anything going on (music, dvd's etc) except for Doar and Diego standing there. We met Ani and Bbelle there and I think the kids had more fun running around Toys R Us. Gary and I realized that we don't ever go toy shopping and thank goodness our hands were full with the two boys or who knows what we would've bought. Well, at least its good that Gary's hands were full because he sure talked A LOT about the Hot Wheels, Star Wars and Indiana Jones stuff.

For Maria's stagette, we went and got our nails done, had dinner, and then a lingerie party. All of us bridesmaids got our nails done the same. The wedding colour is purple and so I was wild and got purple nails. Kai looked at them in awe this morning and said in an drawn out, awe filled, whisper, `Your nails are so beautiful mommy'. Then he wanted to know if he could eat or lick the nail polish.
Maria got a pedicure and manicure.
Gary's just on a jog right now with Kai. Koen is sitting happily in his swing. Our house is a disaster, its amazing how two kids can create such mayhem. I think a lot of it is all the baby stuff we have out everywhere. It had been 2 months since we had given Koen formula. When he was 3 weeks old he had some, and, 2 hours later it just started flowing out of his mouth. Formula takes longer to digest and so if a baby has reflux, its a lot harder for them to keep the formula down. Well, I thought that I would give it a try yesterday. He had 3 ounces of breastmilk and then 3 ounces of formula. Gary held him upright for one hour afterwards. Then, laid him down for the night. After not much time, he heard Koen vomitting up every last ounce.
I had such a hard time sleeping last night. I think because I was out til 11pm and my mind couldn't relax. Then, I was irrationally worried that because Koen couldn't take formula, I was his only source of nourishment and what happens if I can't pump enough for when I go out? What happens if something happens to me? What happens if he can't keep his solids down in a few more months? I feel a lot of pressure to make enough milk and because he has been drinking so much more lately, its been a bit harder to keep up.
Gary was in the bathroom this morning and Kai yelled out, `Daddy, do you need any help?'. I can't believe how fast our spring break is going. I think the only thing that is different is that I can get out during the day and we have better meals. I'm also able to stay in bed til 8am:) Okay, lots to do...better go!


  1. Don't worry...Koen would survive without you :)...but his life is better with you! Man...Kai! Growing up so quickly!!!!!! He sure does look cute in the little fairy costume!!!!! :)

  2. I love the first picture of Kai. It made me laugh. Jon was pretty impressed too. It's priceless. And I'm jealous of your blog book. Mine is done all up to date but I want to put Livi's entire first year in it so I have to be patient.

  3. oh that first picture of Kai is priceless!!! That blog book looks incredible, can I ask how much that cost??

  4. It depends on if you want soft cover, hard cover, dust jacket etc. and the number of pages but my 400 pages in hard cover were about $90 and then there is shipping and handling. I'm thinking I might just make my kids baby books on blurb now too..

  5. That is so great! I went on their website and it looked really good. I also meant to say I love the look on Kai's face as he saw Diego. So sweet. Isn't Koen cute in the exersaucer. All that tummy time has made him very strong!

  6. I love the first picture of Kai. H will love that when he's older!

  7. I love your hair Louise. It looks really good. You are inspiring me to go and get a new look. Now, if I could only find the time!
