Kayla just threw up....ugh....I don't know why, but Kristin did the same thing when she was younger. Every time they come down with a cough, they seem to vomit after they have fallen asleep.
Note to self: no food/drink for at least a few hours before their bedtime.

2'7" tall (55%)
HC (93%) She has a big head.
The Dr. said she is not gaining as much weight as he would like to see. She's been sick lately, and really picky with her eating. He suggested that we load her up in foods that are high in protein, calories, and nutrients. Suggestions were to add oil to her food, serve bread/rice with added butter, fruit with lots of syrup, fried foods, extra mayonaise, mashed avocado, pudding, milk shakes....the list goes on and on. I really can't bring myself to give her junk food, but we did start adding butter to a lot of her food. She loves her peas and butter....yuck.

About two months back, we were at a Hallmark store at the mall. Kristin saw this stuffed Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer she really wanted, and we told her that we'd think about it. We were trying to teach her that she can't always have what she wants, and you could tell she was trying to hold back tears, playing that guilt trip on us. Well, we left the store without buying it and she’s been talking about it ever since. We went to do some quick shopping today and we tried to distract Kristin so we could go buy it for her. We were about 5 or 6 stores away, and Selina started walking over to the store and told me to take Kristin to another store. Kristin goes “Hey, is Mommy going to buy me Rudolf?!?!?!” I couldn’t believe she still remembered, let alone knowing our plan. Unfortunately they no longer carried it, but we did find it at another toy store. You wouldn’t believe how happy she was. It’s so amazing how such little things can bring such happiness to a child.

It's been a while since I've been able to take a picture of the kids. Kayla is always running around now, and it's so hard to watch the both of them until Selina gets home.
Kayla still hates school, or at least she appears to hate it when I pick her up. I usually glance through the window first to see what she's doing, and she's usually playing or walking around. Once she spots me, it's over. She starts crying "DAAAAAAAADDY, DAAADDY, DAAAAAAAADDY!"

When I went to pick her up, it was a whole other story. She was being held by one of the teachers and didn't notice me at first. I was having a conversation with another teacher to see how she did. Suddenly, she spots me and starts screaming and crying "DAYDEEEE, DAAAHHDEEEEEEEE, DAAAAAAAHHHDEEEEEE!!!!!" I felt so bad : (
Each day, we get a progress report, and in one of the sections, you could see that she started out happy, but they crossed it out and changed it to ' a little fussy'.
She cheered up when we got home, and big sis and an apple-pear fixed all that was wrong today.

Selina told me Kristin was being a snob today when she picked her up from school. Kristin and a friend were playing on top of a barrel, which has plenty of room for 3 kids to sit. Her classmate 'Brooklyn' wanted to get on top of the barrel, but Kristin blurted out "No! You can't get on top of here! There is only room for 2!" Later, we asked her why she didn't let Brooklyn on. Her response: "WE don't like Brooklyn!" The things kids pick up from school…....it’s not just germs anymore…...sigh....

The Bug's Life 3d show was pretty cool too.
Of course Kristin was cool too, chomping on her Mickey Mouse ice cream bar
After California Adventure, we headed back over to Disneyland for more 'cup' rides.

This was Kayla's 1st trip here and all she wanted to do was walk off on her own.
Kristin had to get on the merry go round...
and the cups.........
Kayla couldn't keep up.....she fell asleep in 'It's a small world'.
I love the deserts they have. The character was edible, but it was hard like a rock.
Kayla was fascinated with it.
I think the best part of her day was getting to eat it.

These crazy sisters......Little Kayla is a feisty one. She is already learning to fight with Kristin and gets really angry when Kristin takes her toys. Last night, they were fighting over something, and Kayla started stomping her feet in anger. It was the cutest thing. I can only imagine all the fighting that will take place when Kayla gets older.
