There’s no excuse for this post being a day late, other than I completely forgot to do a post for yesterday! #mombrain
Lucy has been rocking my world this week, and not in a good way. It’s like the second she turned three something flipped in her brain, and she went coco loco! One second she’s my sweet girl, and the next she’s a raving lunatic who is mean as a snake. #seriously #butiloveher
Here’s a little peek at what we’ve been up to.
Emmy finally figured out how to get on the car by herself!
This picture pretty much sums up their personalities this week.
They were just playing a game after dinner, but I can’t wait until they want to share a bed for real.
Lucy’s actual birthday was Tuesday, but Matty golfs on Tuesdays so we gave Lucy her presents Monday night. We got her a sleeping bag, T-ball set, swim goggles, and a lunchbox.
The sleeping bag was a big hit, and she’s been sleeping in it on top of her bed all week. I had ordered one for like $45 on Amazon, but then saw this at Marshall’s for $20 and made the switch. Yes, ma’am!
Happy to be three!!
Lucy got her birthday crown during circle time. I’ll still be picking glitter out of her hair for weeks to come, I’m sure.
We brought TimBits and strawberries for Lucy’s birthday snack, and she had fun helping Mrs. T get everything ready.
And then everyone sang Happy Birthday, and Lucy got to pretend to blow out the candles on the play cake. So cute!
I got these dresses from H&M for $5 each! Now that I know they fit great and wash up well, I might have to go back and pick up a few more.
We had Oma, Pop, and Grandma Ri over for lunch on Lucy’s actual birthday. This girl enjoyed her Moana cupcake!
And this girl enjoyed Lucy’s birthday hat from Oma.
It’s a miracle we are both smiling in this picture. The night before her birthday, Lucy woke up at 1:30am and didn’t go back to sleep until 5:30! I haven’t gotten that little sleep in a long time, and I was feeling it by lunchtime. Someone wanted to watch Frozen, though, and I obliged since it was her birthday. I also may have dozed through most of it.
And then the next day I had a first as a mama . . . I had to leave a class Lucy and I were at because of her behavior. And doesn’t that look on her face tell it all?! She was laying on the floor, taking off her shoes, and running into their back room. But, the straw that broke this mama’s back was when Lucy ran out of the back room and launched the teacher’s inflatable bunny across the room. #stoplaughing
The rest of the day was a little rocky, but we managed to make it out for a walk around the park and a stop at the playground. Where are their shoes??
Every now and again the girls will play nicely together for awhile. Yesterday, I heard lots of giggles coming from Emmy’s room. I peeked in to see them taking turns ripping out the pop up portions of a book. I debated whether or not to lecture them on book abuse or just leave them alone and enjoy the fact that they were playing together. I left them alone. #dontjudgeme
My friend Nicole got both girls these adorable shirts, and I love them! Emmy wasn’t feeling the picture, though.
A rare, sweet moment. And look at those chubby legs on Ems!
Lucy and I worked on planting flowers while Emmy napped. When she wasn’t flinging dirt out of the pots, she was a pretty good helper!
Allergies have hit the girls and me pretty hard this week. No, Emmy isn’t crying, this is just how her poor little face was all day yesterday. Her eyes and nose would not stop running!
The allergies do not make for a restful sleep, and she woke up crying about an hour after she went to bed last night. She was so sweet that I just couldn’t put her back down! But more importantly . . . check out my new nail polish! I love it! I was in Ulta the other day, and it jumped right out at me. It’s a light iridescent lavender, and it’s perfect with tan hands and toes!
In other news, Carla has been sending me some super cute pictures of the kiddos lately. Sadie’s face cracks me up in this one.
The cutest Girl Scout ever!
I’m not really sure how this picture will ever be topped. Andy was so proud of his new baseball uniform!
So that’s what we’ve been up to.
We’ve got a big plans for the weekend. Emmy is heading to my parents’ house, and Matty, Lucy, and I are headed to Frankenmuth for the weekend. We are going to let Lucy swim her little heart out at Zehnder’s Splash Village, shop at Birch Run, and eat some yummy food . . . and fudge! Here’s hoping this is just what the doctor ordered for Lucy and that maybe it will push the reset button on her behavior. #fingerscrossed
Have a great weekend!!
