Another week is wrapping up, and I just have to say MY GOODNESS, that was a rather hard one. We are transitioning Natalie from her crib to a toddler bed (she’s not quite 21 months, however Goldie has outgrown her cradle) and it’s not gone well. I mean, Natalie is having the time of her life (lol). But Zack and I? Not so much. Monday night she was up until nearly Midnight, walking the halls and coming into our room to say “hi” in the quietest, huskiest voice ever — and it got to the point where Zack and I were laying in bed trying not to laugh out loud or pee our pants. I’ll let you guess who was who, there ;)
Marigold, on the other hand, is the calmest out of out three babes. So far, I mean ;) some of you have asked how she is doing, thank you so much for that. She has a couple upcoming appointments for a kidney ultrasound and then to see her nephrologist (kidney doc), and I’m working hard at not worrying. God has her wrapped in the palm of His hand! She’s such a smiley girl, it’s a real joy to have another baby in the house. Max loves holding her or laying next to her on our bed, and Natalie is obsessed (still) with finding all the baby items in our house and bringing them to me.
This week we made it to the park twice! It’s been so super hot lately that we’ve been inside more than we should be. The kids have been able to stretch their legs and play, and we begin the one mile walk back home with dirt on our cheeks. Also? Don’t you wish you had construction goggles to wear while you ride your tricycle? Usually Max has his (foam) sword hanging from his John Deere bicycle, I love his vibrant personality so much :)
Almost two weekends ago I helped my friend for a couple of hours with her annual warehouse sale, and then once naptime started I went out for a gel polish manicure. I have always known being at home with the kids is hard (exhausting?) work, but when I came home and found Zack fast asleep on the couch, with his mouth wide open, I about died. PARENTING AFFIRMATION, at it’s best! ;)
Goldie’s onesie reads, Brave and Strong like Mom. Thanks Taylor for the super sweet message! :)
Little bits of “them” are always out, and right now this means a lot of dollies and Legos and swaddle blankets.
During naptime I’ve been working on my Rodan + Fields skincare business, I can’t believe how much I love their products and the added community it’s brought me while I’m at home with our littles. Have you heard of the products? And, do you have a skincare routine you love? If not, I hope you’ll reach out :)
How has your week been? Did you finish anything that has been on your to-do list for weeks? Did you get a chance to read a book or meet up with a friend? Was your goal to simply “make it to Friday”? I’d love to hear from you, leave a comment and share something — anything, with me?
