I can honestly say, I am still so surprised that I have two little girls. What a blessing!
Evie & Nora
Last week at work was chaotic for both Aaron & I, so the weekend could not arrive fast enough. Our house was a hot mess, our yard desperately needed work, and we had homework/work to catch up on. Saturday was devoted to myself running errands with my two ladies as Aaron ticked items off of the housework to-do list. My little girls were well-behaved (thank goodness). Aaron is still stunned at how confident I am with just taking the two girls with me to go shopping, etc. He breaks out in hives and has an anxiety attack just thinking about it. We went to Hobby Lobby, Buybuy Baby, The Vitamin Shoppe, & Trader Joes within 3 hours, along with grabbing some lunch. When we came home Ev & I painted bird houses for Nana Kari & Gran. Later that day, Gran & Grandpa Don stopped by to hang out.
Sunday was great. The girls and I slept in until 9:55 a.m. What a treat! That is the first time we have all slept in that late. They must have known it was Mother's Day. :) And yes, my 3 month old is a rock star sleeper right now. I say "right now" because I know the 4 month wake is fast approaching. Aaron surprised us with Big Apple Bagel...and Evie ate all of her's and half of mine. As a mom, I have realized I never really get a full meal anymore. I am always parting ways with my food to Evie or Aaron...or Stan....and probably soon Nora. We spent the afternoon at Papa Dan's & Nana Kari's house with family. That evening we went on a nice walk and to the park. It was a great day with my husband and kiddo's.
This day used to be one of the most dreaded holiday's for myself. Many virtual hugs to those that may continue to struggle with this holiday due to a variety of different circumstances.
