El Gordito

I finally remembered to weigh The Commander. It would appear that he has nearly doubled his birth weight just as I had suspected. He's about 12.5 pounds now! He's officially out of most newborn/0-3 month sized clothes although they still seem to fit him. Maybe he's carrying all his weight on his face! He has a very cute chubby face.

I love him so much! He's so cute :) Also being very cute is Miss Rejie. She has developed a big liking for me over the last week. I guess she's decided I'm not so bad after all :)

The Wild Rejeanne

Of course, Rejie is never one to shy away from the camera. I like this first one so much that I had to put it up, even though I don't have much to say about her today. We love the Wild One. She really knows how to enjoy life.

The Mystery Bridge

We finally were able to venture across the bridge to see what is on the other side. There is a trail back there and I fully intend to explore it, but not when it's soooooo dang buggy near dusk. I'm going to give it a try in late September when the bugs have died down but before it gets too cold!


Crimson hides her teeth if she knows you're taking a pic of her. I did the same thing when I was a kid(actually, I still do). Despite the snaggle teeth, Crimson has an awesome smile that is much, much better than her fake hide-the-teeth smile I've been capturing all summer. So, here are a couple

3 Weeks

Yes, I know he has SERIOUSLY chunked up in the last week. No, I have not been sneaking him weight gainer.
never complete without a photo of the Missouri River!

O The Irony...


I hate having my picture taken. I think there is about 3 pictures of me in existance from the age of 13 to 18. I'm good at dodging the camera, usually by being the one taking the photos. Crimson got me though, so here's a couple.

I also took the girls to the Aquarium & Hatchery in Yankton and we stopped at the Dairy Dock for some very awesome ice cream. It was pretty tasty after being in the heat.


I was feeling MUCH better today, so I actually left the house. We all went to the pool...


Ever since I had The Commander, I've been gimpy for one reason or another. I thought I was finally bouncing back and BOOM! - gimped AGAIN!!! I'm still functional (sorta), but hurting. It's never taken me more than a couple days to recover from having a baby before but it's been THREE WEEKS!!!!!! I do feel better overall though, so hopefully this is a minor setback and I'll be back to 100% in the next week or so. I'm just really bummed because Crimson flies back to Cali next Wednesday and I had some pretty grand plans for our last week together and I don't know if they will come to fruition or not!

I guess the first item of business should be clearing off my camera memory card so I can take new pictures! I'll have to get to that.

Rejeanne is still grouchy, but she seems a lot better than she was a couple of days ago.

Well, Commander beckons...

No Pictures Today

Rejeanne loves her brother. She really does. She gets on her tip-toes and peers into the bassinet. She kisses the bassinet. She kisses him. Today, she gave him a binky when he started crying (she also brought him a tampon!) Hopefully Rejeanne will forgive Lee soon for loving yet another person besides her. She doesn't like him touching anyone unless it is her (yes, this includes me and it has been like that from Day One). She is very tearful and heartbroken for half of the day everyday lately. I feel really bad for her. It must be hard to get a baby, have Crimson here, have your schedule totally thrown out AND not be able to complain about it...other than crying anyways.

Crimson is doing really well out here. She only has 9 days left here and she's starting to get tearful about it. Thankfully, I'm finally more energetic and in less pain to where I can start interacting with people again. I was starting to worry that I wasn't going to be able to do anything fun with Crimson before she went back. I'm seeing the carnival and the water park in the not-so-distant future though so all is not lost.

I love my girls so much. It's hard to see them both a little blue, though for totally different reasons.
