Granted, this of all Maggie's bad habits, was the easiest to tackle (we still have a binki and potty issue--big time) but I'm happy to have done something.
She's still not a fan of the car seat which makes errands a little difficult.

After church Patrick and Maggie spent almost the entire afternoon in the kiddie pool.
Caroline slept in her swing/seat and I sat around feeling tired yet couldn't fall asleep myself.

The new Baskin Robbins is a simple 10-15 minute walk from our house--the perfect stroll with the kids. We've already been twice. I knew this would be a problem for post baby weight loss!
Doesn't Maggie look maniacal in this pic??

Things are good. Crazy. Busy. Caroline is great and Maggie is adjusting to all the changes like a champ.
We had our first playdate with two kids. We met Micaela and Addy at Sandstone Ranch park for lunch. My, oh my, was that an ordeal! We did suprisingly well until it was time to leave and Maggie started to melt down and I had Caroline in my arms and I didn't know WHAT to do.
We came home to more gifts for the new babe (and one for Maggie--thanks Michelle for that). Maggie immediately put on her new t-shirt and insisted on a picture. Like the face she pulls? It's getting harder and harder to get a normal smile out of her these days.

Coloring while mommy feeds baby sister:
Maggie got pink eye (thank you very much daycare) which she gave to me. We headed to the doctor for some drops. There were at least 4 days of her waking up with her eyes completely sealed shut from the goop. So sad. We got the drops in time for my eyes to avoid that!
Very little awake time still. It's nice to see her eyes once in a while.

Don't you love how kids drop the first "r" in library? Maggie asks to go to the "libary" all the time. I love hearing it. We try to go every week for storytime and to pick out new books for home. Lately she's been so excited about picking her own books she can barely sit through the storytime. She fidgets, sits on my lap rather than with the kids on the floor, and whispers in my ear asking when she gets her sticker (answer: at the end). This particular week was extra fun for her because she got a green sticker--her favorite color. If you look closely you can see the green smiley sticker on the back of her hand.

We've been very lucky this year when it comes to the sicklies. Last year we spent months (and months!) of one illness after another. We had little to nothing this year. Well, earlier this week we were out to dinner with our friends and I mentioned how grateful I am to be out of cold and flu season with no real down time. Maggie woke up the very next morning with a fever and a head full of snot. Cool. She sneezes and then runs to me saying, "Mommy, I have snots!"
