Lizzie Tales

Two funny Lizzie stories:

So I was giving Lizzie a bath the other night. After doing all the necessary things a bath entails I let her play for about 15 minutes before I drained the bath water. We have found that we would NEVER get her out of the tub if the water was still in there. Well after the water was all gone we did our normal bribe-Lizzie-with-a-movie-so-she-gets-out-of-the-tub thing. This was the first night that it failed...
Us: Want to watch Beauty and the Beast?
Her: No, no, no, no.
U: Toy Story
Her: No, no, no, no.
U: Nacho Libre
Her: No, no, no, no.
Not one movie was acceptable. So I sat there for 10 minutes offering other things every once in awhile still getting the same response: No, no, no, no. So then I got a book and read for another 20 minutes with my suggestions still getting the No, no, no, no. Finally after 30 minutes of no water in the tub Jai came in and offered grapes to her and she accepted!!!

Just this morning Lizzie was finishing her churro from dinner last night. She handed it to Jai while I changed her diaper but would not take it back afterwards. I told her if she didn't take it daddy would eat it. And so he did. Five minutes later she goes to Jai looking for her churro. When we told her he ate it she started whining and crying. I told her that if she wanted to cry over her churro that she would have to go to her own bed and cry about it there. And she did just that!! She walked quietly to her room and laid down on her bed and started crying about her churro. Then after 30 seconds she got up came back into the room and gave Jai a hug and a kiss and went about her business. It was so funny!! I never expected that she would actually do what I told her!

Pictures and stuff

I guess my working and blogging are directly related to each other. The more I work the less I blog.

Many things have happened in the last month and a half. Charlotte had her two month appointment. She was 12 lbs and 7.2 oz (90%) 22 inches (50%) and her head is in the 50%. So basically she is a chunk.

Lizzie also had an appointment the same day with a allergist. Basically it comes down to that she is severely allergic to nuts (especially peanuts) and that she has bad seasonal allergies. For her nut allergy we have to now carry an Epi pen around with her at all times.

We also went to a Dodger game with my company (Lizzie, Jai, and myself) The Dodgers lost but we had a really great time in the all you can eat section!! Lizzie even had a great time trying to hold hands and kiss the little boy sitting next to us. It was absolutely adorable!!!

We also had Charlotte's blessing at the beginning of September. I was absolutely terrible about taking pictures so here is one of the two that I have of that day. We had a great time with the family that came into town for it.

We also ate at Bob's Big Boy sometime during the past month and a half after visiting Jai's school for some needed paperwork.

The pictures below are from a grocery store trip one day. Lizzie picked out her entire outfit. She thought she was super cool and loved the attention that everyone gave her for her outfit. Just in case you can't read it the shirt says "Everyone loves a princess" It made for one of our best shopping trips in months. Lizzie gets very upset that she can't sit in the shopping cart because Charlotte is there and so throws a fit right at the front doors to our local Food 4 Less.

Here are two picture of Charlotte that I took today. I figure I need to add a few more of her since most of the pictures are about Lizzie. Char char is getting more fun. She is smiling all the time and giggling. Jai just found out she is ticklish, when in the right mood. She loves watching Lizzie and you can tell loves her big sister. Lizzie also loves Char char (Lizzie's nickname for Charlotte) and gives her dozens of hugs and kisses everyday.
