So much to do, so little time

It has been almost a month since my last post. It doesn't seem that long, but I guess time flies. Not much has really happened around here which is why I haven't felt the need to post. We bought annual passes to Disney World. We went again a few weeks ago and experienced the lovely Florida thunderstorms while there. It ruined our pool plans, but we found other stuff to do. This last visit we went to the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and Epcot. Hannah is catching on to how Disney works. You visit an attraction, and at the end the funnel you into a gift shop where she promptly picks up all the fun stuff that is conveniently right at her level.  I am about to take my husband's debit card away so we don't spend so much on stuff while we are there. I keep telling him we can go back whenever we want so we don't need to buy everything we see all at once. Hannah also rode her first "adult" ride, the Kali River Rapids at Animal Kingdom. I heard she was afraid at first, but then she loved it. I stayed back with Meeghan so I missed it. She is also really into meeting the characters. She gives awkwardly long hugs which is cute, but then I feel odd for trying to peel her off the characters. We are trying to go next weekend for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. I have never been and it looks like a lot of fun. Also the Food and Wine Festival starts next weekend. I can't wait to eat around the world at Epcot.

Meeghan turned 9 months old and had her well baby checkup. I love her nurse practitioner. I hope we have her every time. Meeghan is tiny, but doing great. 16 pounds 5 ounces, 28 inches long, and a 16 inch head. Her head is tiny, but so is mine so I am not worried about it. My cousin has a 4 month old who is 15.5 pounds, 25.5 inches, and a 17 inch head. Talk about two ends of the spectrum! She has suddenly wanted solids and not purees. She wants table food so she now eats what we eat at dinner. Plus she wants sippy cups and water bottles instead of a bottle. I am good if she wants to self wean off bottles. She has started pulling up and cruising. I am okay if she wants to wait a bit before walking. Hannah was walking by this age and I am not sure I can handle two running away from me right now. Also, she finally has a tooth! I was beginning to think those suckers would never come in. She has one on the bottom and the one next to it is starting to come in so she should have two soon. I hate the teething process so I hope the rest come soon. She has also started to make an adorable face that I have dubbed her "Popeye face", but she never lets me take a picture. I will get it one day so I can share it here.

Hopefully I can start to blog more. I never use my laptop since it isn't as convenient as the iPad, but I hate typing on the iPad.


  1. So happy to see you blogging! I hope it continues. :)

  2. Annual passes to Disney World would be awesome! The food and wine festival sounds ah-may-zing!!
    Meeghan IS tiny! Oh my goodness, I think Marcus weighed 16 pounds by the time he was 3 months - no joke.


I'd love your opinion!
