In the routine...

We are really getting into the swing of things. Wallace is getting used to having a little sister taking up mom & dad's time and he's becoming more okay with a screaming baby in the house. Skyler has been giving big one-dimpled smiles for about a week and yesterday she could hardly contain herself and gave her first burst of laughter. She has also been sleeping like a champ. Things don't always go down like this, but on a typical night she's currently doing 9pm-5am.
This is us lounging on our front grass last weekend. Which brings me to Wallace's rash. It seems he's allergic to grass. He's got a mean rash all over his legs, spreading up from all the itching. After a quick trip to the ped's office, we've got him on some creams and he's already doing much better. On another note, we did our first disneyland trip with the kids. Wallace had a blast and is now familiar with Mickey and loves reminding us about him and that he lives at "dinee" (that's disneyland obviously). This has nothing to do with Disneyland, but he also saw Elmo for the first time and thinks he's awesome. We've been watching some Sesame Street on Hulu, while I'm nursing. It keeps him from crawling all over me and smothering Skyler while she's trying to get nourished for the day.

Cute family pic! I can relate with you and the days that are chaotic and you feel pulled in all directions! Every month seems to get a bit easier.
