Life has been pretty good lately. Lucy has only napped once in the last week to ten days, but dare I say her behavior has been a bit better?? Maybe her body is adjusting to not getting a break during the day. Mine sure isn’t, though! She seems to have developed a cold this week, which is no fun, but it did knock her out for an hour and a half nap yesterday. Forty-five of those minutes overlapped with Emily’s nap! #momwin
Here’s a look at what we’ve been up to.
I wear the same thing when I vacuum.
We went for a walk Downtown Plymouth on a cool, beautiful morning last week. Lucy enjoyed eating her snack on a bench in the park.
And Emily was happy as a clam in her stroller.
This past Sunday was Grandparents Day. Because it was also Emmy’s Baptism, we celebrated early.
We aren’t often together with Sarah, Brian, Tommy, and Eleanor . . . but we were all at the cottage for Labor Day weekend so we celebrated then with Grandma Ri. We took pics of all the kiddos a few weeks prior, and I put them together in a super cute frame for Rita to hang in her house. Here are all the pics. So cute!!
We celebrated with my parents last Friday, and the occasion called for matching outfits.
We had to stop at Party City on the way down to their house, and Lucy did a great job. We got out tantrum free and with Daniel Tiger paper plates as an added bonus!
We bought my parents lunch, and gave them a plate that had the word “Love” on it with Lucy’s hand as the “o” and Emily’s feet as the “v.” And can you believe I don’t have a picture of it??!!
Lucy loves washing her tea set dishes at my parents’ house. My mom had her take off her clothes and wear an apron because it gets a little messy.
Again, I wash dishes wearing a similar outfit.
Grandparents Day was just too much fun, and Lu took a little snooze on the drive home.
Lucy is obsessed with Fisher-Price Little People and toys. She would have stayed at Target to look at the boxes all day if I let her. The only reason I got out unscathed was because I lured her away with a box of yogurt raisins.
I left Lucy alone for two minutes to go make Emmy Roses a bottle. She said she was looking for her “My Daddy is So Cool” shirt. She must have overlooked the fact that it was right on top!
My friend Amber came over the other day and brought Lucy the cutest little princess dress up clothes!
We got the go ahead to start Emily on rice cereal. Here she is in her high chair for the first time all ready to go.
She didn’t know what to think of it and maybe swallowed a bite or two. No tears, though, so I’m calling it a win.
Yesterday was definitely a loss, though. She spit out every bite I put in her mouth.
Lucy and I had some solo time at the park yesterday, and we both loved it.
I sure will miss these nights once it starts getting dark at 5:00!
Just leave a lasagna on the porch 😉
I joined a MOPS group at my friend Leslie’s church. MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers. It’s a two hour meeting every other week where the mamas get to listen to speakers, eat breakfast, and chat while the kiddos are in childcare. Leslie has been doing it for a few years and raves about the cleanliness and dedication of the childcare staff. This morning is the first meeting, and to say I’m nervous is an understatement.
Lucy has been going through a MAJOR clingy phase, and in a moment of frustration I decided she needed to get used to being without me so I signed up for MOPS. I don’t regret it (I don’t think), but it sure is causing me a lot of worry. I’m going to stay calm and positive for the girls, but I’m freaking out on the inside. I think Emmy will be fine in the baby room, but I’m counting on Lucy totally losing it when I go to leave her. Please send your positive thoughts and vibes our way!!
