She's Growing Fast!

It's hard to believe that she is 10 weeks old! She is growing so fast! She had her 2 month check up last week and weighed in at 12 lb 3 oz and was 23 1/4 inches long! She is in the 95%!!

She is starting to smile a lot and is laughing in her sleep! We haven't gotten her to laugh while she is awake but it is only a matter of time!

She is a very quiet baby and doesn't "talk" much. I have been trying to get her to talk to me. Well yesterday we came home from church and all wanted to take a nap. I mean everyone but Alyssa wanted to take a nap. So I decided that I would just put her on the bed with me and she could just watch me sleep :-) Well she decided to start talking to me. It was the sweetest thing and for some reason I didn't mind that it cut my nap time short :-)

Aaron will be turning 2 next Monday believe it or not!! We decided that as he gets older he is going to want to have a party with all his friends so we are going to have to do birthdays the weekend after the 4th to avoid the holiday weekend...BUT...since he is still young and is not into the friend thing quite yet we are going to take advantage of having his birthday celebration on the 4th!! He is going to have a fireworks birthday party with his family!! Mommy is going to have a busy week getting ready for that!

My Little singer! Seth loves to sing! His favorite song right now is The B-I-B-L-E. He sings it all the time. Last night on the way home from church though he started singing "Who Let The Dogs Out". I really don't know where he heard that song! He was also singing I'll Fly Away with his Daddy yesterday!

Have a great week!

She's 2 Months Old & Other Pictures

It's hard to believe that 2 months ago today I was in a lot of pain fixing to welcome our baby girl into the world! This pic was taken today at the library.

Other Photos
When I had my diaper bag camera out today getting the pictures off of it from the library outing I noticed some "missed" pictures on the camera.

These were taken during our trip to the movies last week!!

These were actually taken by Granny when her and PaPa took the boys to dinner a few Friday nights ago. She saw the camera in the bag and took advantage of some cute moments! I had forgotten that she told me that she took pictures until I saw them on the camera today.

The boys were enjoying an ice cream cone at Dairy Queen.

Mommy has been in the kitchen

Mommy has been in the kitchen!!!

Several people have been wanting me to post some of my recipes so here are two that I did tonight! Both of these are very easy recipes and work well with busy households!

Breakfast Tequitos
Basically this is a breakfast casserole that is wrapped in a tortilla. By doing via a breakfast casserole makes the prep work for preparing these much much easier!

12 eggs
1 lb ground sausage
1/3 cup milk
12 tablespoons water
20 flour tortillas
wax paper

Brown your sausage. Grease the bottom of a 13x9 casserole dish. Cover the bottom with your sausage and then top that with cheese. In a large bowl beat the eggs and then stir in the water and milk. Pour that over the sausage and cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until the eggs are set.

After you remove it from the oven cut the casserole into 12 pieces. Place a piece of the casserole on a tortilla and roll up and wrap in wax paper. Put the tequitos in the freezer.

When you are ready to enjoy a tequito just pop one in the microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes and voila! A quick easy breakfast!!

Chicken Alfredo Pasta
You don't have to be a cook at all to be able to make this yummy dinner!

12 oz of your favorite type of pasta (my fav is penne but they were out of it at the store the other day so I got bowtie)
4 cooked chicken breasts, cubed
16 oz frozen spinach, cooked (I steam my in microwave)
1 jar of your favorite prepared alfredo sauce (you could make your own but that would not make this a quick easy meal)
4 Roma tomatoes chopped
grated Parmesan cheese

Prepare your pasta according to package directions. Heat your alfredo sauce. Mix everything together!

I served it with Pilsbury Garlic Twists - yummy!!

A Fun Family Treat

We had a fun family treat the other night! I thought I would share it in case anyone else is needing an idea for a fun family treat!!

Chocolate Pudding Sundae

Make a batch of chocolate pudding according to box directions. After you pour the pudding into the individual bowls top with a handful of cocoa krispies and top with a cherry!! As you can see from the faces below it was a hit!
