Who's the baby?

So just for fun, I wanted to compare pictures of the kids around 2-3 weeks. It may just be that they are all newborns and "all newborns look alike", but I really can't tell the difference and had to keep going back to see who is who!

Scroll down for the answers!

Baby and bottles and brothers, oh my!

 So today I will attempt to introduce bottles to Calista. I am really hopeful since my last two children never touched a bottle, though I would have to blame it on my lack of "doing".
And as much as I have tried (which really isn't much), I have no idea why blogger keeps taking my pictures and orienting them any which way it pleases. I have tried to fix this and just don't have the time to waste on it anymore. I am sure that whoever thought that it would help people to "auto-flip" your pictures for you, but once again, the computer does not recognize how "I" actually want my pics. So sorry, I really did try to fix this, but couldn't, so you get to view the pics all *dilly-wampus*. Enjoy!

Enjoying her first real bath!

I think I may have a spa buddy!
Woo Hoo for 4th Grade!!!

The Princess and the P (for pacifier)

So Calista gave us two really good weeks of sleep, barely waking up, feeding and falling right back to sleep. Iknow the last thing you want to do is hear about me complain about lack of sleep, but now miss fussy pants feels like she can be awake and use me for her pacifier. I've tried all the tricks and two different styles of pacifiers and (sigh) i need more sleep than 3 broken hours for the third night in a row. Christopher never took a paci or bottle, but i don't remember having such a hard time getting him to settle back down. My other two boys I trained to take the pacifier. Ok, that's all the whining. I'll just try a couple of more styles and hope that something takes. I guess that's why there's so many kinds out there.
Anyway, to catch you up on what we've been doing since she was born:
Day 3: released from hospital
Day 5: walked around Mt. Vernon
Day 6: downtown to see White House and Memorials
Day 7: downtown to see Museums
Day 9 and 10: Kings Dominion Amusement Park
Day 11: Memorial Day BBQ

So maybe this hanging around the house is not exciting enough for her. Is she going to be a whirlwind, fly-by-the-seat-of-her-pants (what does that actually mean?) kind of girl like her momma? We'll see! Anyway here are a few pictures of our adventures! Enjoy
