We had a fun week! We didn't have too much planned, so we did two different libraries, Omsi, and some fun stuff at home. And over the weekend, we had a cousins foodie weekend where we made some delicious food together. It was a nice break for me to cook all day while Andy hung out with the kids.
I'm pretty sure Reid is starting to get his second set of molars in. He's been drooling a lot, and I can feel his gums getting a little bigger back there. Every time I put my finger back there he tries to chew on it though. Hah! And he just takes off his amber necklace when I put it on, so I'm not sure that's going to be any good this time. Poor kid. He has been sleeping a little better, and he has napped for three days without waking up in the middle of his nap! Usually I have to go in there and rock him for a minute and he'll go back to sleep. So that has been nice.
Ruby has been napping about every other day or two out of three days usually. When she doesn't nap we do a rest time and she can come out at 2:00. Then we paint or she can watch a show. It's so nice when she naps though. Except when she doesn't nap, she's super ready to go to bed at 7:15.
Watching the fish at the library.
He loves shapes. He has been learning so much! His favorite thing is counting lately, everything is "two!" And tonight during bath time he was trying to count the shampoo bottles, and kept saying "three!" and "four!" He's a fast learner like his sister.
So I think Ruby got the chicken pox. Hahahah!
Tony and Courtney's dog Odys visited us on Friday night. He was so cute, the kids loved him! Especially Reid. We have to get that boy a dog some day.
He loves music, and sings and plays a lot.
Me, Dana and Karen starting our foodie weekend!
Enjoying our mimosas.
Breakfast was baked spinach/eggs and bread pudding. It was soooo good.
Pomegranates for the salad.
Rolling the Beef Wellington!
It turned out beautiful.
We had so much fun!
The moment of truth... carving it. It turned out perfectly done and was absolutely delicious.
Warm molten chocolate cakes for dessert with raspberry coulis and whipped cream. So good.
The kids helped me make breakfast for everybody at our place on Sunday morning. My sous chefs.
We headed to the farm down the road for pumpkins. The kids loved the hay maze.
Picking out a pumpkin!
I love these cuties.
Daddy had fun carving the pumpkin with the kids while I roasted the seeds.
We made a scary/happy face.
Ruby made a picnic in the bedroom for us on Monday morning.
We went to a new library and made it during story time. Afterward Ruby hosted her own story time and had an audience.
He does this while he's nursing all the time. He loves to poke my eyes, mouth, etc. I love it.
FaceTime with Grandma Debbie!
We went to Omsi on Tuesday. The kids loved playing in the rocket ship.
They really love the little kids room. The sand area is especially popular.
He loves to kiss mirrors.
Ruby makes a "house" out of the front hose all the time.
She has been into making a "cozy spot" out of her bed lately.
We did a little shopping at H&M yesterday, and Ruby really wanted to try something on. So I let her try this dress on and she loved it.
She has been putting Josefina to bed lately or just going in her room and nursing her. It's the cutest.
She made this Lego car all by herself!
Good night Josefina.
Helping me get the mail... in my heels.
And we got out my wedding dress, she loved it!
