Kenny is a testy little one, who ask a lot of whys. Very intuitive kid, and loves to dance and act. He went for swimming lessons today, and fearless on the slide and on the diving boards.

Kieren: 44 Days Old ~~ And why does it have to rain on Friday? ~~

FRI 23 JULY 2010 - kieren turns 44 days old.

My sweet chubby check Kieren is so alert and he is getting the hang of rolling over. He can roll on his belly, but have a hard time getting to his back. Still, it is a very good movement that impress me. He has strong legs, and he can push like crazy. I did not know that climbing strength is influence by genetics!

Karlina dear is our little monkey. if you turn your back, she will climb on everything: parked strollers, table, computer chair, dressers.

Kenny: he is such an inquisitive active kid, i wish, i have more time to train him on the road. :)

Kieren: 43 Days Old ~~ So I found the Elusive Life Jacket~~

THU - 22 July 2010 - Kieren turns 43 days old. 

KIEREN: My son seems to be awake more after feeding, and he seems to be awake at midnight, which is the time he was born. He must have totally develop a good lung now, because his cries and coos are louder.

I went out shopping today, for some goodies. Got some cat littler, and sunglasses for myself.

LIFE JACKET: yes, i found the elusive life jacket, the smallest one and there was only one left. It is almost impossible to find a life jacket that fits Karlina, she is 1 year and a half, and she likes to go in the pool with her older brother Kenny.
I found it, .............and it was so good that it fits her. She was walking around the house with it, so I cannot wait to take her to the pool tomorrow.

:)

Kieren: 42 Days old ~~ Laundry Day~~

WED JUL 21, 2010 - Kieren turns 42 days old.

KARLINA the EXPLORER: Karlina enjoys our big backyard and she enjoys the exploring phase. She would try to go over obstacles, and chase the ducks by the pond.

VBS: Kenny is joining a 3 day Vacation Bible School at the PMCC. It is a good thing for him, because he mingles with kids of his age.

And the laundry keeps piling up, so the laundry duty begins. :)

Kieren: 41 Days Old ~~ Bumps & Bumps Karlina~~

TUE 20 JULY 2010 - Kieren turns 41 days old. 

It was a nice warm summer day, and Kieren is continuing to grow. He looks great on an "orange suit onesy". He also grow very nicely, he has now a double chin, and chubby check.  He seem to love the cuddle time, and he constantly crave for hug time. Guess everyone needs that hugy time, but babies have more clear expression of need: "I will cry if you don't hug and cuddle me".

TANTRUMS: Karlina is a little terror, she climbs everywhere, and the tantrums started. She will be lying around and cry if she does not get what she want. Overall, she is developing a milestone, tantrums are normal for toddler. She also love the swimming pool and fearless.

SOCCER GAME: Kenny enjoyed the soccer games on TUESDAYS at Trappers Park by GRDO (www.grdo.ca) and we all go and watch him play.
Beside the field, Karlina enjoyed the play structure and she enjoys bumping in there. She climbs and slides on her own. Of course, she bumps and bumps...
maybe hurting her sometime, but its all for the fun!:)

Kieren: 27 Days Old ~~The Light Show at Parliament Hill~~

TUE- July 6, 2010 - Kieren turns 27 days old.

I wake up late, and I decided to take the kids out. One double stroller and Kenny  and off we go downtown.

We reached Rideau Center. We got cold drinks - Gatorade baby. I might be the worst mom out there, dowsing my kids with Gatorade. We also got some muffins and cinnamons at RichTree. We got frozen yougort, and went to Parliament Hill.
There was a "yoga at the parliament" and for some reason Kenny decided to follow their moves. Really hot, even if it was 6pm.
We went back to Rideau Center, and Rob joined us. We got Tim Hortons for dinner, and head back to Parliament Hill again for the Light Show. The Light Show did not start until 10pm, because it depends on darkness to work out.
The light show ended, it was really nice. Going home was a chore because we are competing against the returning crowd from Bluesfest. :)

We got home after midnight. :) what a day!

Kieren: 26 Days Old ~~ The Breast Pump Goes Home~~

MON July 5, 2010 - Kieren turns 26 days old.

The puke still come out of his nose...poor little guy. That must have hurt. He seems to have lots of gas too. It is a task to let him burp.

He needs to be on his belly to feel better. When he is on his back, he feels choked by his own vomit. So he has to be on his side or on his belly most of the time.

Kenny seems to sleep noons, so he miss his 3pm swim. Oh well, we will just bring him to a smaller pool in the backyard.

Since Karlina sleep in, we decided to stay in. We lounge at home and daddy cooked pizza for dinner. Karlina discovered our dining table, and behold she is sitting on top of it. :)

Speaking of the breast pump, I called in today to return it, but Lana won't be in till July 12th.

Bleeding: yes, I'm still bleeding. Still waiting for the day that my bleeding stops and I can actually jump in the swimming pool.

Kieren: 25 Days Old ~~ Sunday Lazy Sunday~~

SUN July 4th, 2010 - Kieren turned 24 days old.

I feel exhausted for some reason, and I decided to stay in bed with Kieren until 11 noon. My husband was then tired too, so at noon, he requested to take over with the kids and he went for a nap.

The living room was like a zoo, every possible piece of toys and stuff lay on the ground. The kitchen was a mess, the sink is full of dishes. Well, men do not really clean up while watching the kids. .........

So, I put Kieren in his bassinet and start picking up the garbage. Try to make a passage way in the living room. I washed the dishes. I put the empty beer bottles in the balcony before it fall on someone's head. Tried to put the DVDs in its respective cases before Karlina scratch em all. I asked Kenny to take his shower. I cooked some Kraft dinner. I put Karlina to her crib for her afternoon nap. Asked Kenny to clean up his play area, which he oblidge half willingly, and I bribe him with a Kraft dinner snack after.

Now, I am breastfeeding Kieren while blogging. And I think...my thoughts need organizing, but nevermind. Nobody reads my blog anyways, but if anyone stumbles to it, nobody cares.

The reason I keep this blog is to remind myself of these dark, survival days...when kids are small, when multi-tasking is a daily  mantra, and the garbage bag needs to be remove at the end of the day because it has Kieren and Karlina's diaper. And these are the days when Kraft dinner is gourmet meal.
Lucky if I can even prepare a meal or worst, serve cereal for lunch, and an apple or orange slice, or watermelon  with slice ham and cheese on the side for supper. 
A stay at home mother can never serve the best meal or even clean the house. Think that the house is the playground for the whole day...........good luck cleaning up at the end of the day.
And the kitchen...sort of playground too. Forks and spoons are becoming toys. And the washroom, especially the toilet bowl can sometime be a drinking fountain! Ew...but what difference does it make to a 1 year old? You tell her NO a million times, and when you turn around, and there she is again, flushing the toilet bowl, and when she is satisfied flushing it 4-5 times, she scoop some water from the toilet bowl, and put it for the cat's drinking water, or worst, drink it.
Familiar episode like eating the sand from the playground sandbox, God knows how many dogs pee or poop there.

And of course, since mama can't offer her vagina for sex, then there should be a job called blowjob. And it all works out.

Kieren: 24 Days Old ~~ And He Went to Shawville~~

SAT July 3, 2010 Kieren turned 24 days old.

We have a sort of rough night last night, Karlina seems to be awake half the time and keeps her daddy awake. So as Kieren, he cannot seem to get comfortable, and those curious eyes were wide open.

Mom invited us over for the reunion of the Kelly clan, the family of mom's mother. It was nice, the kids enjoyed and great food.
The travel was another story. Kieren whined half way because he needs to feed. We need to stop at Arnprior to give him some breast milk. That's one disadvantage of breastfeeding, you can't just feed him while travelling unless you pump and feed him from a bottle. That was about 20-30 minutes feeding time.

We come home, exhausted, and full of happy memories. We took some pictures. Karlina danced to the live band, and we meet some family members. We don't know 80% of them, its like our great great grandmothers and grandfathers.........but it was all good.

Good food, you cannot say no to that. :)

And we went to bed, my husband and I spent like 2 minutes together, then Kieren whined for attention.

Bleeding: I am still bleeding and it is uncomfortable going to bed with sanitary pads.

Kieren: 23 Days Old ~~ Friday Lazy Friday~~

July 2, 2010 FRI - Kieren turned 23 days old.

Kieren: 22 Days Old ~~ Happy Canada Day~~

July 1, 2010 THU - Kieren turned 22 days old.

It was nice day, and the weather is cooler, less than 30C.
We stayed home, and decided that we will visit the museum at 5pm. But getting 3 kids ready is close to impossible, so we came out late.

We end up in Dows Lake, so Karlina and Kenny can run around. Did not take long until Daddy was eaten alive by mosquitos. So we come home. We took the train both ways.

So, Happy Canada Day everyone.

:)Kieren feeds more often and he is getting more alert now.
