Yesterday was a weird day. It was one of those days that reminds you to hug your kids extra tight, stop yelling, and just slow down and enjoy the moment. We spent lots of time playing on the floor, just hanging out and not worrying about the dishes, or the laundry.
We’ve been trying to get Rowan to enjoy time on her belly more. And that usually means throwing in some sort of bribery.
She still not interested in crawling. But she is pretty good at stretching and “scooching.”
Drew & Brinley have a habit of being the first to wake up in the morning (read: way too early) so last week I left a note on their door with ideas of things to do, all the while threatening their very lives if they woke Rowan. Yesterday I found a note on my door that stated there was a surprise for me to discover….
I didn’t have to look for too long before I found that all of Rowan’s shoes were lined up…
Her bed was made, and they added a nice spring touch to the room. A cute little (handmade) alphabet chart was taped to her crib. Rowan should be ready for kindergarten by the time she is 18 months old! They also put away her laundry and vacuumed her room. Now that is service!
Rowan made sure Drew knew how much she appreciated a clean room by giving him a big wet one.
Drew got his birthday box from G&G J, Grandma made sure to include some presents that could be played with immediately, while the birthday stuff waits for next week. The kids got some fun Potato head accessories to add to their collection. Drew and Brinley stayed true to their talents, with Drew’s as Chef Tater…
And Brinley’s as Princess of Tot. This is Brinley’s new “smile for the camera” face. Gotta love it. Notice the slight sunburn on her face after playing too long at the park. Is it really winter?
And what’s a day of Potato Head playin’ if the guinea pig doesn’t get in on the action? Homeboy Edgar was promised some lettuce if he stayed still for an official portrait. Definitely something to add to my portfolio, don’t you think?
