Roel and I went out to dinner one evening while Grandma & Grandpa took care of Kiefer and Saskia. It was so nice to have some time out together, which we almost never get to do! When we came home, the kids had been bathed and fed and were ready for bed. Saskia was teething so she was a little unhappy and saying, “Mama! Mama! Mama!”
It was a wonderful week. We were so happy to spend some time with Grandma and Grandpa and I know they were happy to see us, but I think they were a little tired by the end of the week... they're not used life with a toddler and baby.
Saskia has changed so much in just a couple of weeks. In early February, she got her two bottom teeth and shortly before we left for SC, she started crawling on her hands and knees. For weeks, she had been “commando” crawling and launching herself forward. She also moved beyond pureed babyfood. She feeds herself now. We just give her little pieces of vegetable, fruit and meat. She LOVES chicken and green beans the best and has even had had ham, grapes, cheese, and yogurt. She looks so cute gumming her food. And we love it because we don't have to puree baby food or feed her.
"I have a really powerful butt!" - Kiefer after he farted. How lovely. - December 28, 2010
Kiefer during the car ride home: "I think we should keep Saskia. And when she grows up we should call her Peggy."
I asked Kiefer to stop running around and terrorizing the cat. He said, "I'm not terrorizing, I'm running with style." - February 4, 2011
