It's your lucky day

R received the sacramental trifecta today will post pics from church soon but here is what the house looked like before we left.

Anyone get the My Big Fat Greek Wedding reference?

Oh Friday!!!

Several comical things from today...

1. I go in with R to wake up E from her nap and R starts cooing at E through the slats of the crib. It was priceless!!!

2. I check on E after 2 hrs of night nights and I see the eyes and come to find out she unsnapped and unzipped the pajamas and super bam - no diaper!!! Fortunately the bed was not a victim of the exploration of the toddler. My sister in law told me this would happen - so all you others out there watch out!

3. R is in the crib for the first time tonight. We will see how that goes but that little bed hog does not have an competition for now

Happy Friday....

Oh, R is getting received into the Church on Sunday (baptism, chrismated and first Communion). We are super excited - will definitely post pics

Confession Time!

Okay I have a confession to make... I've been back on the FB... Definitely love the stalking capabilities so I will have to cute back again soon! But in the mean time there are 50 million people who are preggo on FB which brings me to another confession - but not one of mine.

I saw a friend from college over the weekend who confessed she was stalking the blog because she is pregnant and wanted some info/tips/sarcasm so let me just post a few of my favorite baby things to recap items I would register for if I was going to do it again.

1. Baby Trend infant carrier - Why? - the triangle handle is great! No complaints and not any other carriers I have seen have that unique feature

2. Britax convertible carseat - Industry's best carseat hands down. Yes they are the most expensive but you are talking about your kid here - pretty sure they deserve the best protection. The Web site is great for info on installation and stuff.

3. My Breastfriend - The Boppy pillows are way too soft and do not support baby enough during a feeding. Worth the extra $10 for sure

4. BecoBaby carrier - If you plan on baby wearing get one of these or a similar model. I found other cheaper carriers do not provide good back support when baby gets heavier

5. American Red Cross nose squeezer - Just like this one and with two sick babies now I realized why it is important to have a good one.

6. Vick's Thermometer - IDK what the deal is with where you are supposed to take temps now but I still do it the old fashion way. The Vicks is much faster than the Safety First and the ear model is a piece of junk. You want something quick and easy to read and this is your thermometer.

Let me know if you want any other recommendations on different baby items or if you have found something that works well post it up!

I Don't Like It


This is E's new favorite phrase. Can pretty much be applied to anything. Here a few...

1. Food. E has recently decided that she does not like lots of food. I really don't know what is sustaining her besides milk, cheese and yogurt.

2. Last Friday night she woke up screaming and after about 45 minutes of snuggling and sobbing I discovered that she did not like her Piguino - penguin - pajamas! After a quick change crisis averted.

3. E is very attached to one issue of High Five kids - but does not like the other issues that she has!

4. The list is seriously ongoing...

Images from the Afternoon #8

The girls and I ventured out to Papas job site today! Lee has been crazy busy this week so he has been leaving before and getting home after E is in bed. E was super skeptical of the trackhoe but was very interested in all dirt that was being moved. There wre many years shed when we left and I wanted to cry with her. I miss Papa she cried. How can you explain to a two year old that Papa has to work?

Oh and R was really into it... She was kicking around like crazy!!!

Cold nights... Warm snuggles

Apparent the weather in NC forgot it was April and decided to bottom out the past few nights. I love to snuggle up with R on nights like these. She always has a nice little warm patch of bed. I love watching her peacefully sleep and smile her her dreams. I love to nuzzle my cold nose with her warm little nose. I love to smell her hair that sticks up and tickle my nose.

I really don't like the cold but with R but my side she makes it so much more doable!

Two chattering moms. Two dirt digging, duck watching toddlers. Two little sisters who are too small to know they are destined to be BFF just like their big sisters are. One awesome afternoon

Two months ago!!!

Crazy to think I was in labor two months. Crazy to think how much our lives have changed! Crazy to think that we have two girls and no Kibbe boys! Crazy to think E will be two on a month!!!! Absolutely crazy loving our two sweet girls who teach us so much everyday

So insanely big!
Oh my goodness - love the hair. She can thank Papa for that!

My Morning in Pics #7

Today the girls and I were in Raleigh-world and we headed to story time at the library with Grammy since E loved it the first time went she went with Grammy! Because in the Mount story time is during the day on Monday -apparently they did not get the message there are tons of both patent working homes - we cannot go. It was cute listening to stories and singing songs though the Rapper on the Bus was a odd rendition of the Wheels on the Bus - it was generally fun . R needed to eat during the muddle of it but E went back for bubbles at the end which I unfortunately did not get any pics of. Here are a few from post story time.
Sweet caterpillar like benches at the library!
So excited about the books!
No pics please...

Easter Egg Hunt

We got together for an Easter Egg Hunt with a friend from MMO! I think the moms had more fun getting the prizes/eggs stuffed than the girls did. Definitely needs to be a Kibbe tradition...

I could not resist - E can convince Lee to do just about anything including finding her many toothbrushes that fall behind her bed : ) I LOVE seeing Papas and their daughters!!!

Giveaway - May Scent of the Month

Okay here's the deal. I want to know what the scent of the month should be for May. Go to your local Yankee Candle retailer and open those lids, take a whiff, and then pick what scent smells like May to you.

This is not sponsored by Yankee Candle or anything like that. I just like Yankee Candles and like burning a candle a month and think this will be fun to know what other people like.
