I’m playing catch up today since I didn’t do a life lately post on Thursday.
We’ve been pretty busy over here lately, but have managed to squeeze in some fun things too. The most memorable part of our weekend was the unexpected family nap that we got on Saturday afternoon!
But let’s back up a little bit first . . .
I enrolled Lucy in a six week ballerina camp, and the first class was last Tuesday. She was super excited . . . until we got to class. She cried when I dropped her off, even though her friend Amelia was there with her, and I was going to be sitting in the hallway! After like 20 minutes they couldn’t get her to calm down, so they came to get me and let me sit in the room with her. She still didn’t calm all the way down, but she improved. I managed to get her to pose for a picture after class, but zoom in on her smile. . . . she was so traumatized that she couldn’t even smile normally! Here’s hoping this week goes a little better.
Emmy Roses does NOT like playing in the water very much, but we are getting her to warm up to the splash pad by our house.
Lucy needed a potty break while we were at the library Wednesday evening, and Ems was not happy about having to sit in the little baby chair. The screaming didn’t bother me one bit, though, because I didn’t have to chase a baby around the bathroom!
I had a very busy day on Thursday. The kind of day where I really needed Matty to take a few hours off from work to help out . . . but he couldn’t because he had jury duty Thursday morning! #ugh
Luck was on my side, though, because not only was he dismissed early, but he also high tailed it right home with a box of treats from Astoria Bakery! #besthusbandever
And because Matty got home early, I got to leave sooner than expected for a night out with my mom! We haven’t done anything just the two of us since before Lucy was born, so this was a long time coming. We walked around the Wyandotte Street Fair, had dinner, and finished the night with ice cream!
We got these adorable puppets for the girls . . .
. . . and they were so excited to get them on Friday morning!
Lucy and Ems had a play date with Amelia at Sky Zone on Friday, and we were the only people there!
Snacks and water breaks are essential after doing all the jumping!
For some unknown reason, Lucy was wide awake at 5:30 Saturday morning! #nooooo
After we put Ems down for her nap, we had family rest time in our bed, and Lucy was out like a light ten minutes into Moana. She had grabbed onto my thumb while watching the movie, and it was just so sweet! We couldn’t stop taking pictures of her.
After resting with her for awhile, I got up to go to Kohl’s and Ulta. When I got home, Lucy and Emmy were still sleeping! I laid down on the bed, and Lucy woke up just long enough to roll over and lay on top of me.
And then she rolled off a little later. #doublenappers
We headed to the Plymouth Art Fair once Emmy woke up.
Matty was super happy about his corndog!
We watched a princess show in the park, and then the princess walked around greeting everyone and handing out wands. Lucy was a little leery at first, but then quickly changed her tune and couldn’t stay away!
And then her day was made again by getting a balloon hat! She was so proud!
I got a wood fired pizza to split with the girls. Emmy would only sit on my lap, and I was trying to quickly eat my pizza while not dropping any of the hot cheese on her. Matty helped me out by taking this picture of it all going down. #momlife
Sunday morning my mama friends and I celebrated this sweet mama who’s about to have her second baby boy! The restaurant helped us out by delivering a crepe filled with bananas and nutella with ice cream and whipped cream. #yesmam #breakfastofchampions
This week is looking to be a little more “normal,” which is refreshing. Tomorrow we are going to a play date at a shallow pool in Ann Arbor. I have one daughter who is part fish and another who cries every time we put her in water lately. Should be a fun day!
Have a great week!
