|After yesterday's post I thought this shirt was fitting for today ;-)|
|Cooking with kids takes about 10,000 times as long as doing it yourself...but my girls love to do it!|
When thinking about what I wanted to bake today I checked my Pinterest boards for recipes I had saved. But I've found that the number of steps a recipe has is inversely related to how tastey I decide it is. The more steps there are the less I like it LOL. So in the end I decided good old apple crisp was the way to go. And this turned out SUPER TASTY!
6-8 apples in baking dish and pour 1 cup water over
Mix 1 box white cake mix with 1 cup packed brown sugar, 1tsp cinnamin, and 1 stick melted butter. Stir that together and crumble over the apples and bake at 350 degrees for 50 min.
Raya said YUMMY!
Actually though neither girl really ate much apple crisp when it was all said and done lol. More for mommy and daddy though! ;-) The girls tend to like their desserts in their purest form--cookies/cupcakes/candy hehe.
So for snack instead they had bananas!
|There is an evil genius behind that sweet face haha|
To set the scene as to why this appointment was humorous, the other day my mom commented on how heavy Brielle was feeling when she picked her up. After she made that comment I suddenly noticed too---she felt a ton heavier! So I weighed her at home on my scale and it said she was *26* pounds! So then I'm thinking oh good lord, she's gained like 5 lbs since her last appoint 3 months ago !
Now as I've s aid many times on my blog I'm not a health nut. My motto is "live a little!" lol. The girls and I love desserts after meals, we always get a cookie or icecream etc. at the mall...we loooove sugar. That said though, no mom wants their kid to be the fatty at school ;-) So I called my mom after weighing Brielle and we decided that yeah, we shouldn't let her eat goldfish crackers in the stroller when we want her to stay quiet, etc. etc. And she told the doctor she works for (also the girls' doctor) about the weight gain and we were all jokingly refering to her as chubby for a couple days ;-P (Even though we are fully a ware that babies this age can't really be overweight---they all go through stages! It was all in good fun)
But now here's the funny part! So we go to the appointment and my mom weighs her, all ready for us to see the big weight gain, and low and behold she's still a TINY PEANUT! hahaha. My scale at home is apparently way off because she was only 23ish lbs I believe which put her at the 50th%ile...totally average. Her height is now up to the 19th %ile (from the 13th%ile before) ....but she's still a little shorty! So the doctor basically said to let her keep her whole milk and snacks and Brielle's a happy camper :-)
Ok, lastly tonight, PUPPY PACI HAS DIED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I may have made a rash decision last night to cut the paci off of puppy :-o
I really don't have a problem with pacis in general. And I didn't plan to take Brielle's away this early. But the problem was that in the last couple weeks she had developed an OBSESSION with puppy paci. He had to go everywhere and all day long we were searching for puppy because she'd leave him places and then not be able to find him. He was always in her mouth and now that she's talking a lot more it was annoying trying to understand her with him in her mouth. So last night I just cut it off and told her he was "broke".
.....for the next 30 minutes she repeated "puppy broke!" and looked at him. She walked room to room with him looking for the paci part and she'd say "hmmmmmm". It was so pittiful! Lee and I immediately feared we had done something very bad. haha
|Grandma F. isn't going to be happy when she sees this pitiful picture! :-P|
|Raya just didn't want to be left out of the whining ;-)|
Actually though it had gone WONDERFULLY! I *do* still give her the cut off paci part in her bed only. I hide it and then just pull that out when she's in her crib. I"m fine with her having it in her bed only until she's 2 and then we'll take it away like we did with Raya. My problem was having it during the day, and now today she went the whole day without it just fine! She did take puppy to the doctor with us and she's carried him around a little bit today, but in general she doesn't care much about him now that he's "broke" ....my baby girl is growing up. I'm so proud of you Brielle!!! :-)
