day 81: Paul is officially tall enough to not only reach things on the dining room table, but to see everything up there too. Yes, if he is standing up tall the table is below his eye level. So much for just keeping things off the floor – now the table is off limits for non baby friendly items as well. Next he’ll be able to see and reach everything on the kitchen counter and then we’re in real trouble.
day 80: today was another exhausting day. Mostly just because I’m starting to feel like I’m getting a cold again – which CANNOT be happening because we JUST finished getting both of the kids over their month long cold/virus/flu/whatever they had and they are NOT allowed to be sick again. Lucky for me I have the best husband ever and he made me a delicious pizza for dinner with no complaints. Actually he pretty much always makes dinner (what a guy!) but normally I at least pretend to sort of help. I made no effort today. Just sat around like a slug. I was entirely wiped out! Tomorrow I’ll help with dinner. Promise.
day 79: Sunday was a busy day. We went to the park in the morning and in the afternoon we went to meet up with some friends and see their new apartment and grab dinner. The whole weekend was actually quite action-packed. I need a vacation to recover from my weekend 🙂 Here’s the lovely ‘melia on the swings.
day 78: today while Ben and I got help preparing our taxes (so fun, right?) the babies got a special visit from grandma and grandpa to keep them entertained. Paul and grandpa invented a great new game – some sort of dangled by the armpits soccer which was apparently HILARIOUS and Paul’s new favorite thing ever.
day 77: whew!! All caught up. Let’s just hope I can stay that way 🙂 This morning the kids and I met up with my friend Christina and her girls at the beach. Such a GORGEOUS day out. I think this is my new favorite picture of Amelia. I love the expression on her face and I love all the pink – especially the rosy cast on her cheeks from the umbrella. It makes me smile
day 76: because I saw this in the craft store and took a picture of it. With my cell phone no less. Seriously. Who buys this stuff?!
day 75: on Wednesday I decided to be crafty, or home-makery, or something…. and so I baked some sugar cookies and brought them to work for Ben. He’s always asking for a visit from the peanuts so he can show them off and I thought it was a good day for stopping in. The cookies were delicious! I used this recipe
