How in the world am I suppose to transition Livvie from a bottle (that she's been used to for 10 months) to a sippy cup? I've tried putting a sippy cup in her mouth with some apple juice, but she's just not interested or doesn't know what she's doing.
So if any of you have any great ideas, or a fabulous sippy cup to try out, I'm all ears!

I feel bad about asking for a 'peanut free' classroom for Avery, but the teacher was very supportive and said, "We'll do whatever is best for Avery"...
I think it's going to be a good experience for her (and me too!)...

Why don't these companies JUST make these colors? I'd be the first in line! Who needs the green/yellow ones anyhow?!

We did manage to swim, but only lasted about 15 minutes till Avery was shivering too much that she needed to "go put on some long-sleeves."
High School Musical 2’s TV debut was
- The most-watched basic cable television program of all time.
- The most-watched basic cable movie of all time.
- The highest-rated television program ever for children age 6 to 11.
- The most-viewed Friday television telecast, cable or broadcast, in the past five years.
Here is Avery in her High School Musical shirt, with her new Gabriella Montez doll (that sings)!
And, here are my 2 gals at lunch today before our trip home! We had a very fun time, but it is nice to be back at home...

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Be back on Sunday night! :)
feels so good to get that off my chest...

I'm not going to do anything drastic, just different.
Here are a few ideas I have...
Or, I could go a little more crazy,
and get a little bit more off of it
like my FAVE gal, Kelly Clarkson!

School supply aisle! Avery carried the list around with her, and loved to "check" off the items that we found!
Here she is with all her fun school stuff! Isn't that stripe 3 ring binder so cute! I LOVE it!
And, of course, she had to help me put her things up on the counter. School officially starts the Wednesday after Labor day, so I need to enjoy my lazy days while I still have them...
AND, just so you know Dena....if you wouldn't have gifted me with this one, YOU would have been at the top of my list, you blog-tastic buddy of mine! :)

I have been having some luck with my attempt to get Avery some fun back to school clothes off of Ebay. I realized something early on...people pay a lot for things! I was able to snag up a few items for her, and there's more to come!

Avery: "Just call me, Your Highness"...
Me: (mouth dropped open, thinking 'What have I gotten myself into with this girl')

Liv is almost walking. She can go about 7-10 steps, and then gets so happy and proud of herself that she plops down. Avery walked at 9 months 1 week, and I really didn't think Liv would be anywhere near ready. As I always say about this girl, she has never been content with where she is in her little life...always wanting to do the next thing.
She is also a very busy girl who likes to get into everything. She loves phones, watches, remotes, and especially likes cords. She keeps me busy, that's for sure.
Liv's hair grows more and more each day! It's so odd how kids can be so different....Avery didn't have this much hair till she was almost 18 months!
I haven't been very successful at my Ebay attempt to buy clothes. Everyone on there pays so much for everything, and I lose out. Oh well...
My blog design stuff is going great. I think I've done 3 pages, and I have more to go. Thanks to all of you who send them my way! I've really been enjoying it!
Avery is great too. We've had 2 "Mommy - Avery" days in the last 2 weeks, and it's been fun to be with her. It's crazy how I feel like at times she's my best friend... We've bought her first school backpack, and are eagerly waiting for the preschool letter to come in the mail with the supply list and start date!
I haven't been very good at being a house wife lately. My husband got groceries last week, and did the laundry for me. What is it with me being a stay at home mom, but not getting any thing done at home? I just look around at the dishes, or the clothes, and the last thing I want to do is pick up! Urgh...I must need motivation or something! Do they make a pill for that?
All right...there is my life in the last week or so. Hopefully I'll get some good pics of the girls one of these days...
