Shots for both kids today. Liliana and Carter both did well with them. Carter did better than I expected. He cried for about 5 seconds after the shot and that was it. Liliana put on a little more of a show for us..but was still good. In her defense, she had to get two shots and Carter only got one. She was a little whiny tonight and went to bed early but other than that she seems fine.
Other updates from the dr.--
Carter is 8 lbs. 4 ounces and 20.5 inches long! WoW... he's grown from 6 lb. 14 ounces to that in 2 weeks!!!! That puts him in about the 20th percentile for both height and weight. We're still having "tummy trouble" and the dr. called it "mild colic" and has told us to try prune juice (for lack of dirty diapers :)) and Zantac for the acid reflux. Hopefully it will help and Carter's tummy will be feeling better very soon!
Liliana weighs 22 pounds and is 30 something (AHHH...I forgot already... ) inches long. Anyway...she is in the 90th percentile for her height and about 60 percent for her weight. She's doing great and everything is "on target" for her. Hopefully no more dr. visits until 18 months!
Hannah came and took pictures today. (YES...we had an eventful day!!) I can't wait to see our new "family photos"!!! We took them in "John Deere" colors/attire... and I have to say--they are going to be cute as a button! :0 Can't wait to see them!

I can't believe it but my sweet baby Carter will be one month old tomorrow. What a blessing it has been to add another child to our family. Things are a little more hectic at the Moon household..but we're adjusting to having two little ones! We are going to the dr. tomorrow. I can't wait to see how much Carter weighs- I think he's somewhere in the 8 pound range!!Liliana turned 15 months old last week! She getting to be such a big girl. I feel like my baby has turned into a toddler overnight! She's started talking so much more. She LOVES to try to imitate the words you say. :) She can also identify all the body parts on her face- eyes, ears, nose, mouth. Her newest trick is to take her clothes off! Hopefully that's a phase she's be out of soon!

So, Liliana might be a ballerina, a gymnast, a dr, lawyer, etc...but after this afternoon I can't see being an "artist" in her future!!! I was getting bored with going to the sandbox/playset every afternoon after lunch (plus is pretty darn hot outside), so I decided to have an "indoor art project" today with Lil'. I got some white paper and black (washable..thank goodness) paint..thinking I could frame this "artwork" and put it up in the playroom.... So..after preparing everything, I put Lil' in the high chair in only her diaper so she could make a mess and put the paper in front of her. After convincing her to dip her hand in the paint, this is what happened......
She was EXTREMELY upset with being dirty.... she wanted to get the paint off as soon as possible. After screaming, kicking, and a quick bath, all was better.... So, needless to say, I'm going to have to wait for playroom artwork...and maybe should encourage a cleaner "avenue" of creativity next time.
