My Blog Efforts:

I am making an effort to add a little to the blog everyday. So far, I am doing it, YAY! So keep checking back, hopefully I can stick to it, and there will be something new everyday. Sometimes I'll make new slideshows, and sometimes I will add new pics to existing slideshows (like I did the last few days).
Especially since I don't have much time to talk on the phone, I hope this is a good way for me to keep in touch with everybody- it's great that I can do this in the middle of the night when I have a few minutes- it's too bad most of you are sleeping and don't want to talk to me then, hehe!

Below is a Slideshow!!

Well, our lil ones are getting bigger everyday, and there is just so much I want to share! I wish I had more time to spend on updates, and I will make an effort to post more often now.

Sariah is just amazing! She is 4 months old now and already has 2 teeth and more on the way! She can also sit up by herself (without support) and she doesn't stay where you put her anymore (she scoots around) and she is on a mission! She prefers her brother's toys over her own and she LOVES to play with him! She is a very happy baby and likes to laugh and smile but she gets fussy after he goes to bed- because she misses him- apparently he is way more fun than mommy!!

Maletch is doing great! He is getting very good on the computer and enjoys watching videos and playing games on the internet. He still loves Thomas the train and is very excited about the "Day out with Thomas" that is coming up in November - he talks about it everyday. We went to it last year and I will be posting pics and more about that soon!

I have a million photos that I just uploaded from my camera- since I am tight on time- I just threw together about 20 pics (all from one day) into a slideshow below and I will add more to it throughout the week (when I have time to pick a variety from more folders).

Funny "Maletch-isms"

I have always loved hearing about the funny things that kids say, and until a few years ago (before I had kids) my favorite stories from friends with kids were always the "kid-isms" that they would share. So I am especially loving the fact that I get to scrapbook and share the ones that Maletch says and since there are so many already, I can tell there is not enough space in his baby book for all of his quotes, so I just purchased a special journal just for his "Maletch-isms", and I hope he enjoys reading the funny things he said when he was little.

Here are a couple from the past few months:

I asked Maletch, "So what do you want to be when you grow up?" I could tell he wasn't sure exactly what I meant, so I talked about what daddy does for work, and what Grandma does, and then I added, "You can go to college and be anything you want to be, like a fireman, or a doctor, or an astronaut, or even the President of the United States." He was thinking about it, and then with the most serious look on his face, he answered, "I want to be Elmo when I grow up."
Later that week, he brought the subject up again on his own, and I guess he decided to 'change his major' because he said, "Mommy I want to be a conductor when I grow up" (and he was playing with his trains at the time)

Maletch drinks a lot of milk and juice throughout the day, and he likes to switch off constantly, so I always have 2 cups in the fridge (one for milk and one for juice) that I keep full so he can have whichever he wants.
I guess since Maletch had always heard me say that it was time for Sariah to have some milk, he thought it was time for a change because while I was breastfeeding her:
Maletch comes over and says, "Mommy, I think Sariah would like some JUICE now, I don't think she wants milk right now" and he was trying to give her his cup of juice.
I said, "That is very thoughtful and sweet of you, but she can't have any juice right now, so I am just going to give her some milk, but thank you."
Maletch, "Oh, OK."
A few seconds later, he asks, "So mommy, does that one have milk and that one have juice then?" (he was pointing to my chest, the different sides).
...does that one have juice then, LOL, wouldn't that be cool?

Today, Maletch was playing with a toy bus, and there was an Etch-a-Sketch sitting beside me, so I picked it up and said, "I am going to draw a bus like yours." Remember the Etch-a-Sketch, you draw turning the little knobs. So I thought I would impress him with my drawing, and I thought I had done pretty good at drawing the bus. When I was finished I showed him and asked, "So what do you think?" He said, "That isn't really right, mommy. The wheels should be circles not squares, and they should be the same size. You probably want to try it again."
, he is an observant little man, he was right, those were my mistakes! So I had better not ask his opinion if I don't want my work critiqued, LOL!

I'll add more quotes soon...
