Two Months Old and Two Years Old

Diego is two months old today. It's been an interesting and busy two months and not as quiet as I had imagined, but the adventure is still fun. Luckily he is darn cute because he sure can be noisy and crabby. He's growing bigger everyday and we all are learning to function as a family of four. Callie is learning to be a gentle loving and helpful big sister, although we still have a way to go. I am learning to divide my attention and keep two kids happy. Some people say this is like juggling, I say it's like spinning plates. You just try to keep all the plates spinning but when there are too many things to manage you let the least important plate drop and you can pick up the pieces later. That's how I figure my life works these days. Someone is always crying and needs me, but I just have to attend to what's most urgent first. Anyways, it's not always bad, it's just really busy.
Back to updates.. 
Diego-  Can smile when you talk to him, coos back at you, can open and close his hands and bats at toys. He weighs over twelve pounds and wears size 3 month clothes and moved up to size 2 diapers. He sleeps in 2 hour bouts because he is always hungry. The longest he has ever slept is 3 hours and so that means that's the longest I slept in 2 months as well. Diego likes to sleep sitting up as he still has reflux and pukes if you lay him down, however this has improved with my dairy free diet.
Callie- At 2 years and 2 months she is now pretty close to potty trained. She wears underpants all day at home with less than one accident a day. Tomorrow will be her first day at school in underpants which could be harder as she gets distracted. I sewed her some underwear with extra absorbent lining and a waterproof layer. It won't be accident free but hopefully if she tinkles a little she won't need a huge clean up by school staff just a change of underpants and maybe pants. Today she peed in the potty at the park, her school, target, and the restaurant at dinner AND she pooped in the potty at home without any help! I'm so proud of her. She is still really young to be potty trained but I'm convinced by next week we will be there outside of sleeping times.
I snapped photos of the kids together and separate today. Turns out it's pretty hard to get two small kids to look good at the same time, who knew? I also threw in one I snapped on my cell phone of Diego's smile and a few left from the weekend I forgot to share.
Happy Two Months Diego!
