Since I didn’t do a Life Lately post last week, this is more than just a weekend recap. Here’s what we’ve been up to over the past week or so.
Starting the post off strong with a picture of Matty’s lawn. It deserves top billing this week. If my flower game was as strong as his lawn game our house could dominate. However, my strategy of “ignore and hope for the best” has not been working on my petunias. I’m not fretting too much, though, because soon the petunias will be on their merry way and it’ll be time for me to ignore some mums.
Not that it’s a bad thing by any means, but I spend a LOT of time cuddling with my girls.
Exhibit B. Everyday I tell myself “this is the day I’m going to start working with Emily on falling asleep on her own.” And then I don’t.
Matty had his last golf night last week. (Insert all the praise hand emojis here!) Lucy had a tough day on Tuesday and then didn’t take a nap. I knew I wasn’t going to last all afternoon/evening in the house with her, so when Em woke up from her nap we packed up and headed to Funtastic.
This is how she slid down . . . every single time!
Morning play time/Daniel Tiger time.
I was trying to get a picture of Emily’s two bottom teeth. This is the best I could do.
The other day I commented that Lucy’s stuffy bin seemed fairly empty. I assumed most of them had just made their way into Emmy’s room . . . and then I opened up Lucy’s bottom drawer to put some laundry away. Hilarious!
Aunt Sarah sent Lucy some Minnie Mouse stickers to use for her potty chart. Lucy chose to overlook the fact that she was actually supposed to go on the potty first. On the bright side, this sticker decorating extravaganza bought us FIFTEEN uninterrupted minutes to prep dinner. #priceless
Walking her doggy through the park . . . and both of them were wearing sunscreen.
Lucy and I had lunch with Matty last week. She kept saying that the wall was “soooo sparkly!”
Last Thursday was a wonderfully cool day. After dinner we walked to the tot lot at the elementary school in our neighborhood. They had awkwardly low swings!
She’s in the Daniel Tiger zone.
Finally, those slats on the crib are good for something!
Friday was another beautiful, not hot day so we packed up dinner and had a picnic at our park when Matty got home.
Lucy had her first taste of chocolate milk at the grocery.
I think she’s a fan.
This is how we did story time after lunch. I love that you can see Emily looking at the book.
Trampoline fun with Dadu! . . . because mama would never put Lucy on her feet and lift her up into the air . . . and then let go to take a picture!
Check out Lucy’s new hair bow. Go big or go home! Daniel Tiger 4 Ever!
I took a little time to relax with my girl on Sunday. Lucy decided she didn’t want to nap, so we watched a Daniel Tiger together and learned how to handle feeling frustrated. #takeastepback #andaskforhelp
I ended the weekend with a bang . . . Mom’s Night Out! All the mamas came over for drinks and snacks on our patio, and we had three glorious hours of uninterrupted conversation. Matty took this pic at 11:00. How were we all still awake?? #mamasgonewild
We had a great weekend and are looking forward to a very boring week. All of our summer classes have ended, and the fall ones don’t start up until after Labor Day. Whatever will I do with these girls all day every day??? At least I only have to make it four days until we leave for the lake.
Have a great week!
