Twins.... 17 months apart???


First I really thought Brooklyn look like Caleigh.. Every day Brooklyn is looking more like her own self. I do see Caleigh in her ALOT .  Since I kept all of Caleighs Clothes and pretty much took a picture of her everyday. I can take the same photo with Brooklyn and compare the two. This is Bill's favorite oneies. He brought it for the "baby" before we knew it was a Caleigh! Both our 3 months old in this picture. Brooklyn is only a few ounces smaller then Caleigh was at this time. Aren't they so cute??

BUT it taste soooo good.

As I'm sitting here .. looking for a Miracle Diet to get rid of these 15 "BABY" pounds I came across this little post about the TOP TEN Worst Food of 2009. I'm totally sad to say.. THAT I order and EAT everything on this list. No wonder these 15 pounds WONT disappear.....
You are what you eat......

1. Pepperidge Farm Roasted White Meat Chicken Premium Pot Pie - There are 510 calories and 9 grams of saturated fat in this baby. Oh wait - that’s just for half a pie. The whole thing has 1020 calories and 18 grams of saturated fat.

2. Romano’s Macaroni Grill Spaghetti and Meatballs with Meat Sauce - This dish will set you back a staggering 2,430 calories and nearly three days’ worth of saturated fat (57 grams) plus 5,290 milligrams of sodium - more calories and saturated fat than two Macaroni Grill Tuscan Rib-Eye steak dinners.

3. Progresso Traditional, Vegetable Classics, and Rich & Hearty soups - Half a can averages more than half of a person’s daily quota of salt. Instead, CSPI says try Progresso’s Health Favorites reduced-sodium soups with up to 50 percent less salt. Also, see: Hidden sodium in foods you wouldn't think to check.

4. Dove Ice Cream - A half cup has about 300 calories and an average of 11 grams of saturated fat - that’s half-a-day’s worth of the bad stuff. You may be better off with these 5 frozen treats under 100 calories.

5. The Cheesecake Factory Chris’ Outrageous Chocolate Cake - It’s layers of chocolate cake, brownie, toasted coconut pecan filling, and chocolate chip coconut cheesecake. CSPI found each five-inch-high slice weighs three-fourths of a pound and has 1,380 calories, 32 teaspoons of sugar, 33 grams of saturated fat and 5 grams of trans fat. Yikes!

6. Smoothie King’s Grape Expectations II - It’s one of Smoothie King’s “Snack Rights” with 550 calories in the 20-ounce size and 1,100 calories in the 40-ouncer. Proof that not all smoothies are good for you (but these are).

7. Pop Secret Movie Theater Butter Popcorn Snack Size Bags - Just one snack-size bag has 11 grams of bad fat, 7 of which are trans fats. Instead, CSPI says choose Orville Redenbacher’s Smart Pop or Smart Balance Smart ’N Healthy - both are made with no partially hydrogenated oils. Also, see this review of microwave popcorns from Consumer Reports.

8. The Starbucks Venti (20 oz.) Caffè Mocha with whole milk and whipped cream has 450 calories and 13 grams of bad fat - more like a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in a cup. But you can lose all the bad fat and all but 170 calories if you order a tall (12 oz.) with nonfat milk and no whipped cream.

9. Chipotle Chicken Burrito - With rice, pinto beans, cheese, chicken, sour cream, and salsa, you get 1,040 calories and 16-1/2 grams of saturated fat - the same as three Subway Steak and Cheese 6-inch Subs. Plus the burrito comes with 2,500 milligrams of sodium! Ordering it without cheese or sour cream cuts the saturated fat to 3-1/2 grams, but you still end up with 810 calories and 2,300 milligrams of sodium. Ay Caramba! Here's another burrito that will shock you.

10. Cold Stone Creamery’s Gotta Have It Founder’s Favorite - 12-ounces of ice cream, pecans, brownie pieces, fudge, and caramel adds up to a whopping 1,600 calories and 42 grams of saturated fat. That’s about the same as five single-scoop ice cream cones. And watch out before you have this frozen concoction.

Any surprises? And tell me… have you had any of these

Shake what your Mama gave ya!

Caleigh has become a HUGE fan of music. Mainly HIP HOP music. When you turn it down she gets mad and wants you to turn it back up. If the song is something she doesn't care for ... she will let you know. Here is a video of our little Dancing Diva

Poopless Brookie and Sick Caleigh

Our house is full of GERMS..and NOW the Mommy is getting sick too. First theres Brookie... She has not been able to go potty # 2. I had to take her to the ER on WED. It had been to long.. and she was in to much pain. After they pumped 2400 ML of gas and gave her an exlax.. My Brookie.. Pooped like no other. THANK GOD too. cause they weren't going to let us go till she did. Little did I know ... She wasn't  going to POOP again. We went to Cali this last four day. and still no poo poo. so gave her another laxative.  Here is a pic of her .. She was SOOO happy.  but again we are on day 3 and still no poo.. and they say breastfed babies never have problems... 
Caleigh has had a fever on and off for the last two days. I really think its the weather and her teeth. Shes cutting 4 Molars .... all at the same time. Fun Fun Stuff. She's still a Happy little Bee.  Here is here taking a bath!
