It has been a great week! Monday greeted me with a fresh carafe of coffee brewed just for me (I think running is making my body reject non-decaf coffee; has this happened to you?), along with a custom message on my coffee cup thanks to Zack. We had a little hiccup a few days ago with Natalie not wanting to nurse, but I think I figured out the problem so we’re back on track! ;) And oddly, this little hiccup is (fingers crossed) helping her to now sleep through the night, so there’s the silver lining of that situation.
We are off on a camping adventure this weekend with friends! I’m so excited! I think we’re all ready for some time outdoors without any thoughts of work or TV or phone cords. Yesterday, Max helped me bake some banana muffins to take with us.
As a reward for doing such a great job listening while we baked, I let him play with a bowl of soapy water in the kitchen sink. In all honesty, it’s his dream activity :)
And this girl, seriously, she melts us all. She is so generous with her smiles, she’s so happy, and so expressive with her feelings. Natalie, we adore you (and your great hair)!
SQUINTY SMILES — give me all of them! Plus: elephants!, climbing stairs!, finding leaves!, and telling me everything he sees! Max is definitely our little blonde explorer.
“Mama, pick up Bauer, put in here.”
Next week I’ll be sharing a handpainted DIY, one of my very favorite home projects to date! Next time we move across the country, you can bet I’ll find room in our Jeep for this piece of art. I love it. Have a great weekend, friends!
