Happy Monday, friends!
It’s time to start a new week. I hope I’m not jinxing myself by writing this, but the Kissels owned Daylight Saving Time. Both girls did well throughout the day and, other than Lucy asking why they were going to bed when it wasn’t nighttime, fell asleep no problem. Here’s hoping it continues to be smooth sailing!
I’m starting off with the cutest picture ever of Emmy riding the rocking giraffe at my mom and dad’s house.
Snuggling/wiggling away from her Godmother. Emmy only has eyes for Oma!
It was pretty darn cold last Thursday, but Lucy had big plans to go outside at my parents’s house. Thank goodness my dad didn’t mind!
After coming inside, Lucy combined two of her favorite things: going shirtless and washing dishes with Oma. #livingthelife
Friday morning Lucy asked if Emmy could wear a ballerina tutu. Um . . . yes, m’am!! Those are most definitely the thighs of a ballerina!
It made my mama heart so happy that Lucy was playing and engaging with her sister . . . for about ten minutes. #illtakeit
After Em’s morning nap we headed to Sky Zone for a play date. Lucy jumped her little heart out!
Once it got a little less crowded, these three got out and had the best time crawling around on the trampolines.
Lucy and her friend Greta held hands walking out . . .
. . . and all the way to the car. Cutest thing ever!
Matty made the girls homemade banana pancakes on Saturday morning, and they were delicious!
After a trip to Laurel Park to play at the play place and try on shoes, a trip to Cantoro’s where Lucy got a free cookie as big as her face, and a little lunch, Emmy did this . . .
Sydney did this . . .
and Matty and Lucy did this.
After rest time we headed to Lucy’s friend Amelia’s 2nd birthday party.
It was a Sesame Street party, and these cookies looked amazing!
Lucy can’t pass up sprinkles, though, and opted for a cupcake instead.
While Amelia opened her presents, Emmy Roses entertained herself with a balloon.
And then this little guy came over, and I know Emmy was thinking, “You’re cute, but you can’t have this balloon . . . unless you have a cookie.”
Lucy was super pumped to have a balloon and two glow sticks as party favors. Both girls did a great job at the party. Matty and I broke our own rule and didn’t even leave until 7pm . . . and bath time usually starts at 6:45! Insert wide eyed face emoji here. #livingontheedge
But alas, our party fun was brought to a screeching halt when we got home to see that Snort had peed on the couch. The poor guy is so old and can barely move and hasn’t gotten on the furniture while we are gone in weeks and weeks. And then this! Thankfully, the cushion covers not only come off and are washable, but also have a waterproof barrier underneath them so that the cushions themselves didn’t actually get wet.
Double girls! Sometimes you just gotta get both of them somewhere at the same time. Over and over again . . . Lucy loved this game!
We went to Grandma Ri’s for dinner Sunday night. Lucy rocked her bear to sleep . . .
. . . before hamming it up with the new potty seat Rita bought. So far this is the only action that seat is going to see because Lucy has no interest in using the potty.
We have a very busy week ahead of us. Brian is in town with Tommy and Baby Eleanor. We haven’t seen them since Christmas and are excited to seem them today! We’ll miss Sarah, but I’m sure she’s going to enjoy her quiet evenings at home after work!
Lucy has school, we have plans to go to Open Gym this week, and another play date on Friday.
Busy, busy, busy!
Have a great week!
