19, 6, Palm Springs and Father's day!

We have been really busy the past two weeks. Well we are always busy but the last two have been even more crazy than usual.

Natalie turned 19 months on the 16th and went for her 18th month check up. Yes, she was a month behind but the Dr. said it was fine since she wasn't getting shots. Hey I wasn't about to leave work early and lug the kids to the Dr. two separate times. Natalie is 34.25 inches tall and 25 pounds. Thankfully I wrote it down on the back of a coloring book page so I wouldn't forget haha. I had the Dr. check her for being anemic just to make sure since at her 12 month check up she was. Funny story, Natalie was sitting on Kevin's lap while the nurse was cleaning her finger to take blood and Natalie was just watching what the nurse was doing. Then the nurse pricked Natalie's finger and she didn't even flinch and then the nurse started squeezing her finger to get the blood out and Natalie moved in for a closer look. After the nurse was done Natalie looked at her and said, "Good job" then she looked at us and said, "Good girl." It was so funny we all started to laugh. Natalie is talking in 3 to 4 word sentences now so that has been so nice that for the most part we can figure out want she wants. Her new favorite words or phrases are, "there's/ where's my Daddy (mommy) (baby)" "fun" "go outside" "love you mommy (daddy) etc." "handsome" and when you ask her what he name is she says Natalie Mullaney it is so funny to hear her say Mullaney. She also finally can say Caleb. She is such a funny and energetic little girl. We love you Natty!

Caleb turned 6 months on the 12. It's hard to believe he is half way to his first birthday. Caleb is 28.75 inches tall and 16 pounds. He's tall and skinny like his Daddy. He is now a tummy sleeper even though he starts on his back and still loves sucking his thumb. Even if we try to give him a pacifier he spits it out and pops his thumb in. Bad habit I know but it does look cute. He started eating cereal, veggies and fruit. So far green beans and asparagus are his favorites. i know you are probably thinking they don't have asparagus baby food, but I'm going out on a limb and making his food. I have to say it is so easy and cheap too. He is still all gums but his bottom teeth are trying to come through. He is such a happy baby my mom says we could never have another kid because we have been spoiled with two easy babies. I think she's right. haha We love you K-man!

We went to Palm Spring to celebrate my mom's birthday a week early since Kevin will be out of town on her actual birthday this Saturday. It was a wonderful time as always and it was such nice weather. We enjoyed hanging out in the pool, Outlet shopping, and yummy food. Happy Birthday Mom/Mimi we love you!

On Sunday we came home from Palm Springs and went to Kevin's parents' house to celebrate Father's Day. We had wonderful food as always and got to spend good family time with all the wonderful Men/Father's in our lives. We love you all.

So that was the past two weeks in the lives of The Mullaney's. I guess it seems pretty mellow once you write it all down. This coming week should be interesting though. Kevin leaves tomorrow for a guys Vegas trip, my Aunt and Grandma are coming into town for a week today and then my other Aunt and Uncle are coming into town Friday through Sunday. So I'm sure I will have some fun things to blog about soon.
