It was a big day. Not only did mommy make the first batch of Rosebud's baby food (I'll post on that another day), but she also made her first homemade baby wipes. Go here to find out what I did (Thanks Liz). They look fantastic, and I will let you know how they work. Again, for another post. Today is about them.

These three kiddos really have my number. There are some HARD HARD days at this house. Days where people wet their pants, have tantrums, hit, bite, yell, and are generally quite sinful. And this includes mommy. Although I don't generally bite :o) But today was not one of those days.
This little girl hit a milestone that took Snug till near 7 months (he was a preemie) and Monkey Man was around 10 months to master. Rolling over from back to belly. In all fairness Monkey Man did roll one time around 6 months, but it was only once.
Yesterday and today she spent quite a bit of time in this position grunting and kicking.

And then finally she achieved her goal. Rolling to her belly!

But all things considered...being on her belly is not her favorite. Not by a long shot. Snug and I took turns "rescuing" her today. Finally I told him to let her go and see what she would do. After 20 minutes of wailing...she fell asleep. Exhausted. She is currently sleeping on her belly in her crib. I think we will all know when she wakes up!

In other news...Snug hit a milestone too!
Instead of just sitting on the swing sweetly asking for a push whining about mommy hanging laundry and not constantly pushing him...he learned to pump. After a push he can keep going all by himself!!!!!

And boy is he proud!

Last, but certainly not least, Monkey Man is really really really talking up a storm. He is even singing with us. PLEASE excuse my voice. I am sooo proud of him.

um, oh my gosh, I hadn't noticed how much she looks like the boys until now, and she's a chunk! Is she already 6 months old?? YIKES! It took Bug like 9 months to roll from back to front...it was like he just didn't do it...just laid there and waited for someone to save him from his back!

Aww! I miss them! Congrats to Rosebud! It's all smooth sailing now! Oh... wait....
She looks so chubby! I want to squeeze her :) Way to go mama!
And congrats to Snug- Danica figured that out last week and it has saved me so much time! My kids swing while I hang laundry too. I wish she had figured it out in OH when the swing set was not 5 feet from the line. hahaha
Monkey Man sounds great! They've all grown up so much in the last 6 weeks since we've seen you :(

AWWWWWW!!!!!! I saw Liz's wipes too and have already made a second batch! (I need to go thank her!) They're GREAT! Paige said 'Ow' a few times at first b/c we used to use the cloth ones from Walmart which are a little softer, but not a big deal now. Hope they work out for you too!! :)
