Random Things About Our Mom

This post is coming from Chardonnay and Briahnna (daughters of Sheliza or some people call her Shelly)

There are a lot of things that you may or may not know about our mom and we are here to tell you those things.

1) Her nickname is "Bawbi". We have been calling her that since we were babies.

2) She likes beer,and today at the grocery store, she was smiling and saying "Ooh" at a case of raspberry pomegranate beer.(YUCK!)

3) She lets us watch "Desperate Housewives" with her on Sunday nights. We love that show!

4) Once, when she was pregnant, she ate seven slices of pizza! That's a lot of pizza for one person, don't you think?! Well, maybe not for a sumo wrestler.

5) She always uses immaculate grammar! She will say certain words in a sentence that I have no clue what they mean. Makes me wanna (oh, I mean want to) carry a pocket dictionary everywhere I go!

6) She completely corrupts herself when the car radio is actually working.

7) When she was pregnant, she had this pair of jeans that looked really lame, so we called them "the lame jeans".

8) Her favorite children's television show is "ICarly" and she wouldn't mind having her hair styled like Carly. (Miranda Cosgrove)She even almost cried on an episode when Carly and her brother were going to be separated for good.

9) Her nickname for "American Idol" is "American Atrocity" (which of course we totally disagree)!

10) When our Dad said that the bath tub, was blocked up, Bawbi decided to take action. She kept pouring in plunging soap, and plunged till she couldn't take it anymore. Then, she realized that the switch to fill up the tub was up, so that was why water filled up in the tub. She felt so dumb afterwards.

So, as you can see, our mom is probably not the person that you thought that she was.

Been there, done that

I was thinking the other day about how we grow as parents. I realized that once you have been there and done that, you get over a lot. For instance,

First child (been there)-You must have an overall theme with every piece of equipment to match...the crib, changing table, carseat, stroller, high chair, bouncer, bedding, mobile, walker, and the list goes on... Oh yeah, and you would dare not use the hand-me-downs! Only the newest and fanciest for your precious new bundle of joy. A good 4 outfit changes for the day should suffice. You sterilize and sanitize every surface to keep those pesky germs away. Even a trip to the grocery store requires you to pack that baby bag like you are going away for a week!

Second baby (done that)- Okay, maybe we don't need all the stuff we had with the first one. Your bed can double as a changing table...and 2 outfit changes per day should do the trick. Hand-me-downs are not half bad! Maybe a couple germs will not hurt this one so let's not go overboard with sanitizing. The baby bag this time around does not look like luggage!

Third baby (I'm so over it!)- Hand-me-downs are a must! Outfits only get changed if they get dirty or wet. Sanitizing?? (maybe just for a little while so I don't look like a bad mom!) Baby bag? I almost forget that thing every time we walk out the door!

I guess you can say that we have evolved!!

Don'tcha hate it when.... Wednesday


Hey everyone, you know what day it is so let's get started...


Fellas, members of the BBCDO -Don'tcha hate it when you ask your wife for 10 more minutes of sleep in the morning and she comes back in 8?


Don'tcha hate it when your wife tells you not to do something because it will turn out bad, you do it anyway, and it turns out bad?


Dont'cha hate it when your wife acts like the best wife in the world and then you remember it's payday? ( man that's foul)


My personal one- I hate it when I go to the store to buy something and everybody says "you're that guy with the pretty wife and pretty kids. (HELLO?? I HAVE A NAME!!!!)


Fellas get at me with your Hate it when Wednesday in the comments area, and LADIES, if you think you're brave enough to hang with the big boys, meet us in the comment area and hit us up.


Peace- Ismail the Great

Message from baby William

To all of mommy and daddy's readers,
I thought I would let you all know how I have been doing. I am a very, very good baby. I am a good eater, I don't make a mess, I am cute, sweet and cuddly. I went to the pediatrician for my one month check up yesterday. I have almost doubled my weight since I was born. I weigh 8 1/2 pounds! I thank my mom for that. I try to let my parents sleep at night and I can't help it that I LOVE them to hold me tight until I fall deep into my sleep. Since my parents do not believe in co-sleeping, I get what I can, ya know?! My newest thing is I love to follow my family with my eyes. I love all the attention they give me, especially from my sisters. I wanted to tell you all that I am on a mission. I was born with eyebrows and I was taking a look at my handsome self the other day and realized that they are now missing! I am on a hunt to find them. My daddy says if I do not find them then he will shave his off to match me. I know my dad is a rough and tough manly man but don't you think that is sweet? If I find my eyebrows, I will have my folks post a photo of them. Uh oh, I think I need my bottle now so I better go and cry so mommy will feed me. Wish me luck in finding my eyebrows!
Sincerely, William

Don'tcha hate it when.... Wednesday

Don'tcha hate it when...
You allow someone to view your photos and they feel the need to put their fingers all over them?
And when you are standing in line at a store to pay for your items and the person behind you feels the need to stand practically on top of you. Ever heard of personal space?
And when a person thinks it is okay to put their hands through your hair without permission? Again...personal space!
And last, when people drive badly while yapping away on their cell phone. Get a Bluetooth!
What bugs you?? Hit me up in the comments....

Big Sis and Little Brother


Here is big sister Chardonnay with her baby brother. She just loves to sit and hold her brother and love all over him. Now the other big sister, Briahnna loves to do the same except it only lasts about 10 seconds and she is ready to give him back! Briahnna prefers to show her affection when an adult is holding him! The girls are so good with William and he looks for them when he hears their voices.

My favorite boys

This is a sweet little snapshot I took this morning before Big Daddy left to head into the office. It is so hard for him to leave each morning. I started back driving carpool today and it feels good to be back into my routine. I hope everyone has a great day!

I forgot!

Oh yeah, I do have a blog to update, right? I have been so busy loving my baby that I forget to post! I have him on a schedule and would you believe he knows the difference between night and day! I actually get sleep at night!!!! Here are a couple photos...

Our dog Milo loves to check on his new baby brother. He is so good with William and I am glad that he is exposed to animals from birth so he won't be afraid of them. Milo likes to come and get me when he hears William cry. It is so sweet!

Finally some photos!

Hello to my family and friends...
I have not posted on so long, as a matter of fact, not since before I had the baby. I have been spending my hours taking my time to gaze into my son's sparkling eyes, smelling his sweet baby's breath, touching his fragile little fingers and toes, and just savoring every moment of him being so tiny. I know that it will not be long before he starts sprouting teeth, his face changes, his cry deepens, and he will no longer be a baby. I do have a couple of photos to share since I must get 20 emails a day requesting them. He mostly looks like a sleeping little loaf of bread since we have to keep him extra warm until he picks up some more weight. With the way he has been eating, that is happening very quickly! Enjoy!!
