A day in the life..

Well it is official, Gabby is into EVERYTHING! This stage better not last long. She is everywhere! I just run around cleaning up the last mess she made. This is a peek at my average afternoon. Well, an hour of an afternoon.
Also to make matters worse (messier) Gabby now refuses to eat if I try to feed her. She MUST do it herself! I guess that is great but it makes for a disastrous floor after meals. Ahhh!
Isn't she just too cute though? I swear I could eat her up.




I NEED A MAID! Bri........

1-800-hireamaid, ask for Brianna.
Do you think I'm overusing the 1-800 numbers a tad?! :) She is so funny. I love that she now needs to feed herself, have fun with that.

Linds it just keeps getting better. They just keep getting busier and more curious. But it's a fun stage even though some days you think you might go insane. The other day Drake got into the pantry and had dumped a whole box of cheerios on the floor. I just grabbed the video camera and laughed!!

One time I tried to babysit my newphew who was about that age...It was terrible! I could barely make mac and cheese without having to watch him every second! Oh motherhood...I can wait! But gabby is darling!

Babyproof! I'm not kidding, it will make your life a million times better.

Oooohh I remember this stage! Reagan was so stuborn. She wouldn't let me feed her either. I have to admit though...I never bought any cupboard locks or anything like that. After me saying NO NO NO she finally figured out OH I am not supposed to get into that??? Unfortunately each stage has it's downfalls. Now she is in the terrible two's....not sure which is worse? It is a good thing they are so dang cute huh?

Welcome to my world

I don't know what it is like, but I am feeling for you, but not really bad, more jealous once again. I can't wait to have kids!!! She is to cute!

Lindsay said...

Linds--I guess this is what it is like to have little girls; they seem innocent until they do something like this!

Baby proofing is not fun but well worth it! So far, we've covered our outlets, installed a gate, put safety latches in our cabinets, and I think that is about it. I don't know what we are going to do when Kaitlyn figures out how to open the fridge!!

Lotz Family said...

Lindsay - THey have an appliance lock at Target for toilets, fridges, stuff like that.. but I doubt you will need it. Kate can't open the fridge yet, it's pretty hard. She sure can open the toilet, but we just keep the bathroom door closed!

Lindsey said...

OH FABULOUS!
I don't really wanna screw holes in all my low cabinet doors! But, if i must I must!
Do you make holes?
Nice, I am JUST learning this stuff!

Cassidy Legg said...

I dont know if this is normal but this makes me want kinds. I just laughed and laughed cause it is so cute. but then again I dont have to clean it up. Hey I called you yesterday... no answer.... just wanted to see how your appointment went.... oh and to talk too :)

Camie said...

so holes in the cabinets were a must for drew...but i know lots of people who don't do it. Such a fun stage.

Lindsey said...

Cass, I called you back today and left a lengthy message. Sorry, I tend to talk my own ear off.
Cam, I will see YOU and Drew later!! Wahoo.
