That's how I feel every time I sit down to blog. I don't like that I wait so long in between posts that I always feel like I'm doing an overview instead of more specifics. There's only so much time in the day, and with all of my various responsibilities taking priority, blogging has moved to the back burner. I'll try to keep it simmering though (if we are going to continue with the "back burner" metaphor.)
Here's our typical type of day, recently:
|Wake up. Lounge. Play.|
|(Or Target with Mimi!)|
|(Sometimes I hold these straps like horse reins haha)|
|(playing at Mimi's)|
Natalie loves feeding Jack. It's pretty amusing and stressful to watch.
Next up: quiet time! Jack sleeps anywhere from an hour-two hours, Stockton is more like 2-3 hours. During that time Natalie and I hang out.
|her birthday card that she drew for Uncle Aaron. She instructed|
me to draw the red lines for candles, but she did everything else
and was very proud of her rainbow cake
sometimes we play inside, sometimes we play outside (and share jello with whipped cream)
|sometimes she wants Elsa hair and gets mad|
that it doesn't reach her shoulder, acting like
it's my fault that her hair isn't longer
Isn't she the best? My little princess.
Then the boys wake up and we play some more.
|post-nap milk recovery|
|sometimes it's nice enough to play with water outside|
We raked leaves one afternoon and cleaned out and vacuumed the car. It was magical and productive.
|I like when Natalie lets me experiment|
|movie time - I was trying to capture the smiles Stockton and|
Jack were giving each other but Smalls got distracted when I came over
|It worked for like a minute to keep Jack sequestered|
in the dry pool. Stockton was confused and Jack
kept trying to escape.
Finger painting fun! I love the fancy shoes with the old t shirt.
Apparently my children can levitate.Snacks are involved, and sometimes we do an extra special outing like Lost in Fun.
|Smalls is getting good at feeding himself.|
|Way more fun when we go with friends!|
|Movie night with the Welches and Natalie who didn't want to|
go to bed. We watched Bridge of Spies - really good!
