I didn't take a whole lot of pictures this week for obvious reasons. We are finally healthy(I think). Though Gabriella did still have a nasty diaper blowout yesterday which meant me washing everything in the crib from the bumpers to the sheets to the stuffed animals - twice! She had played around in the crib after her nap and didn't fail to traverse a single inch of the crib. UGH. After she got scrubbed down, the tub got scrubbed, the crib wiped down with Lysol wipes and I got scrubbed down, everyone was happy. After all the laundry this week, I can't wait to see the water bill.

A few of these pics are from last week, the rest from this week.

You can tell she wasn't really feeling well here.

I like the box that my new Cabbage Patch doll came in that Lisa, Joel and Meagan sent me!

Trying daddy's Steeler's hat on for size.

Pure joy - oh to be a kid and get so excited about the little things in life,huh?

I just love these eyes!

Gabriella was playing with the border strip from the playmat and Bing was on the other side of the glass going crazy trying to get to it! Every time she'd fling it around, he would jump at it. I missed the perfect photo of him in action.

I'm glad everyone is feeling better. Sorry you had the cleanup! (Knock on wood) Alex hasn't had a blow out yet....and I hope he keeps it that way!!!!!

So glad to see Miss G loves her birthday box! I worked so hard to find the perfect one! I tried to find a Cabbage Patch doll with the same DOB as the girls, but the closest was Mar.13th.(she wasn't very cute though) More of a toddler size with multi-color hair. Might've give Miss G bad ideas of coloring her hair too!
5 more days and they'll be 1!!! boohoooooo!!!!

Good Gravy! They sure do love to "fingerpaint" don't they? I've cleaned enough crap off Ducky's crib (and pack and play, etc etc) to last 3 lifetimes. When I have another, I think I might forbid the child from moving his or her bowels. Think that will work? Maybe I should just put Merry Maids on speed dial instead. :-)

Glad you're feeling better!

I am lovin' Gabriella's dress in those first few pics!

Cleaning up after continual blow outs is absolutely exhausting! Sorry you had to do that while you weren't feeling the best either. But glad you are starting to feel back to your normal self again!

Why do they like the border pieces? Savnnah is always pulling them off. Gabriella must have to fight for box spots with the cats! Must be warm by you now if she can wear that beautiful sundress. I can't wait!

Glad you are back in action! Have a nice weekend.

Oh nasty! I hate blowouts. All though I have not had one that bad yet. Notice I said yet. I love that cute sun dress you have on her.

Ana's Mama said...

WOW! Gabriella's hair is growing sooo fast!

Hey Alleen, Isabella has the poop explosions now. Gabrielle doesnt, yet! It seems to be passing quickly, I think we picked it up at Chick-Fil-A. I can't figure out how else we wouldve gotten it. I am glad you and Gabriella are better though.
