Hey, Friends! Happy Thursday!
I feel like I don’t get to say this very often, but is this week flying by or is it just me? I guess it’s not a bad thing, because that means we’re getting closer to Thanksgiving break! #daddyshome
We started off our week with a trip to Kohl’s and then to the doctor for Emmy’s flu shot. That’s right . . . two errands in one morning!
Surprisingly, Lucy loved this giant guy on display at Kohl’s. I made sure to leave early to allow plenty of time for tantrums . . . but we didn’t have any . . . which means it was no big deal for Lucy to play around with this guy for ten minutes.
Nemo had to join in on the pictures as well. I wonder if her pictures with Santa will go this well!?
Emily had been fussy all morning and FINALLY fell asleep . . . about ten minutes before her flu shot appointment.
Who is this big girl checking out the aquarium?!
Nap time, oh nap time . . . where for art though, nap time??
We walked in to school on Tuesday morning, and Lucy sat down and said, “We can take a picture here, momoozle.” #thatsmygirl
Mrs. Tammy brought out the dress up clothes!!
Oh. My. Word.
Lucy’s very first school picture, and Matty and I are obsessed with it! haha
Tuesday was a beautiful day . . . cool, but sunny. We headed to the playground before dinner time to burn off some energy. Or just sit in the stroller.
I wanted a picture of the girls in their matching hats. I asked Lucy to come stand by the stroller, and she yelled, “No, no, no!” For those of you who have been around us lately, I’m sure you can picture exactly how she said it. It’s not nice.
Lucy wanted to push Miss Roses around in the stroller. I really want to think that she would have stopped before running Em into the tree if I hadn’t stopped her first.
And then Dadoozle showed up at the park on his way home from work and made Lucy’s day!
This little lady loves a good tummy tickle before her bath.
Emily eats mashed up bananas all the time, but yesterday I gave her banana pieces instead. Judging from that face, maybe I accidentally gave her lemons!
Emily has had about a week’s worth of poor sleeping at night and unbelievable amounts of poop during the day! TMI? sorry! Anyhoo, after a particularly bad night on Tuesday I decided to check in with the doctor yesterday, and she had me bring Emily in to have her ears checked for an ear infection. No ear infection, thank goodness, but possibly a small bug that’s making her fussy, spit up, and poop. #lovely
Also, she weighed in at 22 pounds. #whoa
Lucy pulled her old mobile out of the closet and played it for Emily. A rare, sweet moment!
Pointing out all the things her baby needs from the American Girl Doll catalog. The list is long . . . get ready Santa!
Yesterday was Grandma Ri’s birthday, but, unfortunately, she was feeling under the weather and was not able to celebrate. Lucy celebrated anyways and really enjoyed the ice cream that we were supposed to eat! And yogurt raisins. And fruit snacks. On second thought, this picture does not reflect well on my mothering. Please forget you saw it!
Daddy took a picture of Lucy in her crib . . .
. . . and then Lucy got to take a picture of daddy!
We have Lucy’s 2.5 year check up today. I’m excited to not only get her stats, but also to sit down with the doctor and get some suggestions/reassurances about some of Lucy’s recent behaviors. Can a child really survive on mac and cheese, yogurt, and fruit snacks?? I’ll get the answer today! haha
Have a great weekend. I’m trying to decide if I should bake and freeze the remaining 200 cookies I have to bake (I already have 200 in the freezer!) or decorate for Christmas. Most likely a little bit of both.
