worst blogger ever?

So, I am officially the worst blogger ever. To my credit, the laptop was broken for a few days...other than that I have just been lazy and busy. We had a great week with Gramma and Grampa here. They spoiled us rotten...cooking for us nonstop and helping take care of the kids. They even watched the girls so Ry and I could go on a date one night. We went to PF Changs and then did some shopping! It was so nice to get out and spend some time alone together. All in all, having them here was a huge blessing.

The 4th of July was Gramma and Grampa's last day here, so we spent the day at Ryan's parents house with them. The girls had fun swimming with daddy and Grandpa, though Grandpa threw Emma in the water a little too hard and she did a huge belly flop which traumatized her just a little bit. We have to be extra careful with Madeline around the pools these days...she has absolutely no fear of the water and just jumps right in. Which is great if she has her water wings on...if not, she sinks right to the bottom. She hasn't figured out yet that she doesn't really know how to swim. Thank goodness we have a baby fence around the pool or we'd really be in trouble. Ryan got sparklers for the girls and a bunch of fireworks. The girls stayed up late to watch the fireworks and they had so much fun. After each one that Ryan set off, Emma would run up and hug him proclaiming things like "My dad is wonderful" and "I have the best dad ever". For the first few fireworks Mad kept yelling, "Do again daddy", then she got freaked out and sat in the car the rest of the time...go figure.

Claire is getting so big already. She will be one month old tomorrow. Time is flying by....it's so sad. I want to savor every moment because I know how fast it goes and I know (hopefully) that this is the last time I will have a newborn. She is still as sweet and good as ever. She has started breaking out with infant acne and mommy the perfectionist is not happy about this. I have been googling to see what I can do about it and apparently I just have to wait it out. Ugh! Someone at the gym today told me that since I am nursing it could be caused by me eating too many nut products. So.....no more peanut butter in my protein shakes for a few days and I'll see if that helps at all.

Well, this has been way too long of a post. I guess I am making up for lost time. I'll try to post some new pics soon.

Caroline had the rash all over her face too and then magically one day it was gone. I was obsessed with it bc I too am vain ;) and took her to the doctor...they said its just sensitive skin and totally related to my breast feeding/hormones. I think Beth had the same thing with Fiona!
