These are some of the things I would share with you...
Miss Syd has moved on to Cheerios. That saves us a little moola. A box of Cheerios is a lot cheaper than the smaller containers of those puff thingies.
Sydney is weaning. And I thought it was going to be this emotional disaster for me...and it probably will still be that...but she is biting. A LOT. And that my friends, makes weaning okay. Her teeth are coming in and her sleep, nursing, and mood are all impacted.
Knitting continues and I am finding I LOVE it. I remembered what I was doing last night at class. And I mastered "pearling" pretty quickly and found myself knitting in bed before sleep and was going back and forth between knitting and pearling. And here's the big thing...I dropped a stitch/ made a mistake and I fixed it! WOO HOO! I think that is the big thing you have to be able to do...fix your mistakes. The hat she chose for us to conquer in two class periods has all sorts of stitches so that we learn all these things...which is great, but it also means we didn't complete the hat like she planned. So we were sent home with homework and will meet again in March. In the mean time...I am going to get my homework done and then give a washcloth pattern my grandma used a try. I have her knitting needles. How cool is that!
My sister could have her baby today. Just sayin'.
I so wonder if Eli will have a brother or a sister. I just posted about the dynamic that a brother and sister family hold....but the incredible relationship that comes with brothers is amazing. I just wonder so much what she is having.
I bought these dove chocolate hearts to make those peanut butter kiss (Christmas cookies).... But I have nibbled most of the hearts up. So the cookies might not happen.
We got Henry a ski helmet and goggles. He has to take a lesson before he gets to keep the helmet and goggles. Lesson sign up ...happening this afternoon.
I tried a Zumba class this weekend. I want to take every single one of my friends to experience it. I sweat my bootie off and didn't even do half the moves. It was inspiring and hilarious and a great workout. Thanks Amy for encouraging me to tag along.
Ed has new work challenges that will impact my day to day life a bit this week. We'll survive and THRIVE.
Miss Syd is napping and I have to go get Henry in 15 minutes. I HATE waking her up. It is one of the hardest things a mama had to do. But, I savored every single minute of this last hour and a half...and she needed it even more.
I am kinda caught up on laundry and it isn't heaped on the couch at the moment...it is folded and in baskets all over our room. I am going to have the boys attempt to put their laundry away this evening. They. CAN. DO. THIS.
This morning I got to the gym for 45 minutes. Made eggs and bacon for me and the kiddos. Got the boys in the van for school without any tears or snapping. Dropped Henry off. Whipped into Target with Charley and Syd to grab a few groceries and get Charley's Valentines (more on that later). Dropped off Charley. Unloaded the groceries. Got Sydney down for a nap. Took a shower. And blogged. Is it 8pm yet?
Let's hear from you! Give ME a glimpse at what's going on in your life. What beverage would you order and what would you share. Miss you!
