I have two cans of pumpkin in my cabinet, but no evaporated or sweetened condensed milk. Someone tell me how I can make a yummy, pumpkin dessert without the latter two items? This love of fall is killing me without pumpkin yumness in my house.
Regarding fall...and babies - which obviously the two go together...mhmm - Elliora is growing like a weed and sleeping a little better at night. We go to the doctor tomorrow for her one month check-up. I swore I wasn't going to say it, but alas I give in, I can't believe its been a month already. At her last appointment, she gained a whopping pound in less than a week. I'm fairly confident tomorrow's results will be similar. She's a fabulous eater...much unlike her sister who still refuses a full meal per day. What will I do with her?
Speaking of Annelise...she's been dramatically stripped from the spotlight since her sister entered our world. Yet, she has adopted much less of the sibling jealousy than I first feared. Did anyone else notice that their first born became a giant when they brought a new life into the world? It seems like overnight Annelise has gained ten pounds, began speaking in full sentences and went from a size three shoe to a five and a half overnight. My wallet is screaming!
Lest I leave him out as well, Matt has been adjusting to having another girl in the house. He loves being a daddy - especially to daughters - but the lack of sleep is beginning to take its toll. He's been sleeping on the couch in order to get a full night's rest. Last night as he scooped up his pillow and blanket for another night in the living room we both sighed, unable to acknowledge a better solution, but hoping this one would end soon. Annelise slept through the night at 12 weeks. I'm aiming for that.
Ok, my novel of a post is finished. I have no new pictures to share...I've succumb to the reality that your second child really is photographed less than the first. Sorry Elli.
