Day 14 - Sleepytime...

Daddy is working tonight, so it's Princess, Mommy and Kula home together this evening.  Princess laid down for her nap just before Daddy left for work... and she slept... and slept... and slept...  I think she thought it was night-night time.  Not a bad assumption, since it gets dark SO early now.  And she was comfy, cozy and snuggly in her K-State blankie made by Grandma!  Isn't she the most precious thing?  =)
PS - I woke her up a few hours later, to feed her and change her diaper.  We played and chatted for awhile, then she went back to sleep.  I didn't want to be woken up at 4 a.m. by a wide-awake baby who's had enough sleep and is ready to go!

Day 13 - Baby Fashion!!

Princess has 15 pairs of legwarmers.  YES, fifteen!  As you can see in the pic (all are present except a plain lavender pair, which she was wearing at the time) she has many colors and patterns - stripes, dots, hearts, stars, even cow print!  =)  Leg warmers are great - not only do they look super cute, they keep her legs warm in the winter.  Baby socks are funny little things - half of them don't seem to fit very well and tend to work their way down the foot and if you're not paying attention, will fall off completely.  And baby pants are so cute, but unless they have elastic on the bottom, everytime you pick her up the legs crawl up and her poor little ankles/calves get cold.  Baby legwarmers solve both of these problems - AND make diaper changes much faster/easier!  No taking the pants off and putting them back on a squirmy-wormy baby!

We LOVE this Web site:

Since Princess's legs are so little right now, the leg warmers go all the way up her thighs and scrunch a bit.  As she grows, she'll still be able to wear them - and when she gets big enough they'll fit like they're supposed to (just under the knee).

The Web site gives AMAZING discounts - free shipping, and the more you buy, the bigger the discount!  Tell everyone with baby girls (they have hats, headbands, flowers, etc. too) - or just buy some for them!  They make great gifts!

Day 12 - Future BFFs

Baby Princess and Lil Bug got to hang out together at church this evening.  I got to sing a bit of back-up for the youth group worship band, and James was working, so Trish and Bryan took Princess into the adult service with them for a bit.  They were able to snap a few pics of the best buds sitting side-by-side.  Lil Bug can't really sit up on her own yet, so Bryan was trying to show Princess how to put her arm around Lil Bug... you get the idea.  They're so sweet! 
Princess is 5 months, Lil Bug is 2 months.  Within a year (especially within two) there won't be much difference in their ages/development, but right now it's amazing how much difference there is between the two ages.  I remember when Princess was that young... my, how she's grown and changed!

Day 11 - Don't be a jerk

So... my loving father-in-law knows how much I LOVE Hawaii, LOVE warm weather, LOVE sunshine... and every now and then, especially when the weather in Dodge City (or in PA, where he's from - where my Hubs was born before his fam moved to the Big Island when he was 6 yrs old) isn't that great, Kona Bill will send an email.  I'm sure it's just a friendly little HELLO, just to keep us updated on how they're doing, not in any way meant to rub it in...

So here's the latest - while it was a frigid NEGATIVE FIVE according to my awesome Explorer's temp display, it was a lovely 80 degrees in Kailua-Kona.  ARG.

Day 10 - Livin' the Life of Luxury

Ah, how nice to be a baby...  Doesn't she look so laid back?  All cuddled up in Daddy's arms, awesome PURPLE leg warmers on chubby thighs, warm bottle filling up a li'l belly that's poking out - cute CUTE  C*U*T*E, if I do say so myself!  =)

Day 9 - Chillin' at Church

Our little Princess, showing off her awesome sitting-up skills!  She got to hang out with "Lil Bug" and her daddy while Mommy and Daddy were warming up with the worship band before service.

"NumNumNum - that bug's leg (actually the heart attached to the bug's leg) feels sooooooo good on my teething gummies!"

Day 8 - Magnet Messages

A sweet Christmas message - my refrigerator magnets started out as one tiny set in my pseudo-twin Ashley and I's house in Newton (with maybe 35 letters?) and it has grown and multiplied throughout the years so that I only need a few "ghetto" letters to complete messages!

Alas, I think it's time to come up with a new message...
