The week has been a blur, really busy, but feel like not much was accomplished... hmmm?
Lila has been able to be outside LOTS, therefore, she is a much happier little girl! She LOVES being in the pool, even to the point of blue fingers and toes! Ask her if she wants to get out... "uh-uh" with the defiant head shake. Take her out against her will = close the windows so the neighbors don't hear the screaming! Otherwise, she's been a pretty happy camper!
Ellie has now been Dairy-free, via mom, for 5 days. Sadly for me, this seems to be making a big difference. Half my normal diet consists of milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream, but I cut it out completely to see what would happen. What happened? Less fuss, less cry, less whine. Now I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. Food I love and crave or cranky, unhappy baby? Boo :(
She is smiling more and more, which makes everything more rewarding, so for now... I'll make the ice-cream sacrifice. (A mothers love, right?!!)
Ryan and I are good, yet admittedly wishing and longing for the day to come when we can leave the girls with Grandma and Grandpa! Our friends are headed to Vegas for a long weekend and I'm almost green with envy... alas, it is not meant to be this time around. I fear leaving my not quite 2month old daughter for 4 days would definitely put me in the running for "suckiest Mother of the Year" award. Oh well, Belle Plaine and no sleep is just as fun, right? Ha!
Ok, I'm going to throw in a few pics of recent days, finish my coffee, and head into the exciting land of laundry, dishes, and grocery shopping!!! (I know you're jealous!)
