Day 194



There are many reasons why this..... is not okay.
I 'm gonna write a letter to someone, and complain. Mom's supervisor maybe? Do mom's have supervisors?
Mom had to get my sister's jammies on, and needed some place to put me. She didn't want to put me on the floor (not sure why)
and then I hear her laughing as she puts me in my sister's baby stroller. For dolls.
At least she had enough sense to not let Reese push me around (although she did beg to do so)
What's next? A doll crib?
I declare shenanigans.

Day 189




I have an issue that I would like to discuss. A concern really.
 My brother was born with a full head of hair, in fact the doctor snapped pictures of it during an ultrasound.














My older sister also.... had hair. Lots of it too.
Britta had hair- much more then me... and we are identical twins. How does that even work?
How am I supposed to get the looks I need with no luscious locks? I long for an up-do like this. (mom did this up-do by the way).... and yes Kristen that is you in the background.

Heck, I would even settle for a Snooki.

 

Anyways. In my desperation I was up late watching infomercials and a certain product caught my eye.
It said it would make my hair grow, and so I gave it a try.....
but this is what happened. What do I do now? 
I am to little to cut with scissors.
 I seriously need some help. Any suggestions? Even an horror story about a bad style you had would help me feel better. Thanks guys.

Day 185

 It is too hot in AZ. I'm gonna rent a place for the summer in the tropics, and I found the perfect spot.
 Spacious doors. Lots of room.
 See the coconut tree? Perfectly tropical.
 Big windows with lots of natural light.
I just have to get the current tenets (who are diaper salesman) evicted!!!

Day 178

I hope you had a good weekend.
Friday I met with the pediatric neurosurgeon. He was really cool, and he had spam on his shoes. Yes, spam. Rhett and Reese sat on the floor and stared at his shoes for about 10 minutes. The rest of the time they just embarrassed mom.
I was supposed to get a MRI on my brain..... but the doctor Spam (we decided to call him that in the car) gave my mom an option of either having the MRI, or coming back in a few months for a check up.
Mom of course went with door number two- so no MRI for me. The reason for the MRI is to check on the bleeding on my brain, as bleeding can sometimes cause pressure and fluid build up. But my head is of normal size, and doctor Spam was not too concerned.
It was nice to be back in the old neighborhood again. Whoot Whoot 602.
 Saturday mom worked on the book, and my brother and sis were brave enough to take in the slide of death. Dad rigged the hose to flow down the slide, and then added a slide of death slip and slide. It is so hot out here in good old AZ, if I was old enough I would have taken my chances on the slide too.
Mom made them a phone from cans and a string. They kept calling them "cell phones." Man, they have no idea.

 I chilled in my bumbo. Every time mom saw me sitting in it, she laughed at me.
Sunday we went to church, and everyone said how cute I was. It was awesome.
 Have a good week, and don't forget Father's day is coming up. I have no idea what to get my dad. What are you getting the man in your life?

Day 170





Hi everyone! How was your week? Not much new here. Mom has a bagillion pounds of fabric, and planned to make blankets out of it. She wanted to donate the blankets to Phoenix Children's Hospital NICU (my hood).
There is only one problem with this splurge of service, and that is she hates to sew. She made two blankets and then decided since she had two babies- she would donate two blankets! If she had five babies, then she would donate five, but she only had two.
This logic does not make sense to me, but I did learn some new words while watching her sew.
Here is a picture of the blankets, and I am excited to take them to the hospital. She also made some flowers and head bands to donate and made a special flower for my primary nurse, Megan. I miss Megan.
I think she is going to farm out the rest of the sewing to the young women at church, they might need a service project.
I am happy to report that the book is coming along. We did get an offer from a friend at church, and so we have decided to change illustrators. It was a hard decision, but I am excited to finish the book and get it printed!
I wanted to share this with you. Mom has a friend named Tara, and she gave mom a recipe for home made baby wipes. She made some and they are cheap to make and soft on my buns. I like em'.
If you want to try it, here is the recipe from providentlivingtoday.com
 
Spice Traders Wet Wipes
(my mom uses Do Terra oil, but you can use what ever you like)

A roll of paper towels cut in half
A round Tupperware, that the half roll will fit into
2 C water
2 Tbsp Baby Oil
2 Tbsp Baby Soap
5 to 8 drops of Spice Traders Essential Oil

Cut your roll of paper towels in half. Place one half in the Tupperware, and set the other half aside for the next time you make wipes. Mix together water, oil, soap and spice traders and pour over your paper towels.

Let it sit for a few minutes before you try to remove the cardboard center of the paper towels. Once that is removed, wait another 15 minutes to let the paper towels equally absorb all of the liquid. After that, begin using your baby wipes by pulling from the center.

My mom celebrated her birthday this week too, and she made a chocolate pie. It looked so good, I was ready to grow some teeth so I could eat it. You should try it.
Here is the recipe. Yum! Have a good week! I have an ultrasound on my brain this week. The doctor will be checking my brain bleed that happened when I was born, and will also be discussing if I need a helmet. I will let you know how it goes.
