This past week we have been full of milestones!
First Little Man has not only one but TWO loose teeth! Both of this front two bottom teeth are loose and the adult teeth are already growing in behind them. We keep telling him to play with them so they will fall out soon!
Little Princess had a very exciting weekend! First off, solid foods! We started this weekend with avocados! YUM! She was not so sure about the texture but did not seem to mind the taste.
Next, rolling over! She rolled over for daddy last weekend but only him and brother saw it. But this weekend she was all over the place. Friday night she had problems going to bed because she was fighting sleep and kept rolling herself over and getting even more mad because she was stuck on her stomach! So much to my surprise when she woke up Monday at 3:30 am to eat she was fully asleep on her stomach! (Yes I went in to check on her). And again in the morning was asleep on her stomach as well. And yes she is only getting up ONCE a night now. Anywhere from 1am-5am. Then will sleep until 8am or 9am if you let her!
My favorite milestone so far, "ma ma ma ma."!!!!! And then I hear "She said 'brother' did you hear her?" coming from Little Man!
Cherish every moment, because they grow so quickly and in an instant it can all be over.
Other than that life is as crazy as ever! Don't forget to check out on Tuesdays at 7PM PST for ALL moms!
I will try to post pictures soon.
Fllow me on Twitter (tanyapeila), FriendFeed (tanyapeila), and Flickr (carson2005) to see them sooner!

iPods on fire?

I own an iPod and often let my son listen to it and read cooks on it. This will make me think twice. Very unusual for Apply too!

Fruit 2 Day

I was sent a sample of Fruit 2 Day to try out.

Fruit 2 Day is a new way to eat fruit. No doubt about it, fruit does wonders fr your health. But it is tough enough to get your fill with an on-the-go mommy lifestyle. Now there's a new way to eat fruit. Each Fruit 2 Day contains 2 servings of fruit!

Here is my take. It tastes GREAT! Just like fresh fruit. There are real fruit bits in the drink which I personally do not care for, and also would not recommend for toddlers. It is a bit unexpected if you don't know it has fruit bits in it.

Other than that, it is a yummy drink and super easy way to get 2 servings of fruit! Again not big on the fruit bit pieces, if they ever remake it I would suggest omitting the fruit bits!

Guitar Hero Little Man APPROVED

My 5-year old has taken a great liking to Nintendo DS and it keeps him occupied in the car. So, this past week when he was given the opportunity by MOM Central to out the new the Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits game for his Nintendo DS there was not a chance he was going to say "NO" to this one. He was asked to test out both Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits game and the Guitar Hero On Tour: Decades game so that he could test out the additional features for multi players. Not only did he get his friends to play with him he even recruited his uncle to test out the multi player mode using both games as they competed against one another and shared songs between the two games- I guess you could call it Nintendo DS Battle of the bands.
The Handheld guitar players can now choose how they raise-up their band from the underground music scene to worldwide rock stardom in Guitar Hero® On Tour: Modern Hits. Featuring a set list comprised of 28 master tracks from influential artists including Coldplay, Fall Out Boy, Tenacious D, The Strokes and Weezer, Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits expands on the innovative Guitar Hero® gameplay on the Nintendo DS by introducing an all-new Fan Request system that challenges players to jam like never before. Fret board fanatics can once again unleash their inner rock stars anytime, anywhere as they hone their shredding skills and jam to face-melting modern rock tracks from the last five years in Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits.
Rock out to today’s hottest tracks – Shred along to 28 master tracks, all modern rock hits from some of the hottest bands including Coldplay, Fall Out Boy, Tenacious D, Weezer, The Strokes and more. Players will tour through five all-new venues that are as extreme as the tunes played in them.
Choose your path to stardom – For the first time ever, players can choose how they take their band from the underground music scene to worldwide rock stardom with the exciting non-linear gameplay progression in Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits.
Do it for the fans – Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits delivers an all-new gameplay experience with Fan Requests. By completing Fan Requests players build their fan base and open up new challenges to rock-out like never before including jamming to an entire song in Hyperspeed, battling it out in a Guitar Duel with active Bomb Notes or whammying every single hold note in a song.
Rock out anytime, anywhere – Fans can take the Guitar Hero experience wherever they go with Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits. The Guitar Hero™ Guitar Grip™ mimics a guitar fret board and fits seamlessly in people’s hands to deliver the same core game play that defines Guitar Hero. We did have some problems with the Guitar Grips coming out of the game during play. This was kind of frustrating becasue you have to turn the DS off and restart. Also just a side note if your child has a Nerf cover on their DS you will have to remove it to play these games. They should make some sort of extention for the grip so you don't have to continually take the Nurf cover on and off.
The party never stops – Song streaming features allow players of Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits and its predecessors, Guitar Hero: On Tour and Guitar Hero On Tour: Decades, to share songs via local wireless connectivity. Players can rock out together in multiplayer modes, jamming to tracks from all three versions of the game.
