Anticipating … a quiet day ahead of me! Jemma is on a mini vacation with her Daddy and grandparents and Max and I are at home chillaxing. Yep, chillaxing :) That’s code for watching Pretty Little Liars, blogging, and napping.
Buying … Christmas gifts! I finally decided on a play kitchen for Jemma – my mom and I are going to pick it up this evening.
Needing … some new ideas for lunches at home. I’ve been stuck on Trader Joe’s bean and corn enchiladas for awhile, but need something else quick that can be fixed with one hand. Ideas?
Thinking … that saying “no” is good for my soul. I’m in a unique season of life right now. Two babies, not enough hands and I have to do everything I can to make my family a priority. Saying no to things I can’t fit in or emotionally manage is totally worth the time I get with my treasured family of four.
Ignoring … the laundry.
Anticipating … a super fun day with her cousin, Karrington. They are two peas in a pod and I know she’ll miss her “Kar-Kar” when she flies home. On the agenda today is lots of shopping and yummy food!
Buying … something soon! At the rate Jemma is collecting coins from her grandpa she’ll be shopping for something fancy in no time at all.
Needing … size 8 shoes. Girlfriend’s feet jumped from a 6 to a 7, and within a month to an 8!
Thinking … about the potty, a lot. We talk about going potty, she’s learned to sign potty, and she’s obsessed with helping me flush. Every morning when I change Max’s diaper she comes running over shrieking “Poo? Poo?” If there is some she is super happy and says “It’s poo!” over and over again. We’re communicating about when she is wet/dirty and I’m hoping all this conversation will move towards some willingness to sit on the potty more.

Ignoring … bedtime. Well, between her, Daddy, and vacation, rumor is that Jemma didn’t get tucked in until 11 pm last night. Lord help our schedule next week!

Anticipating … his next meals.
Buying … my love with smiles.
Needing … to take his 3 month photos. Our unofficial weigh in this morning put this guy at 18.5 pounds so he’s obviously grown since his 2 month shoot!
Thinking … 100% mama time is rad.

Ignoring … the bald spot on the back of his head.



… Oh so many ways to follow along …

    Little Miss Lulu has a pretty good sized bald spot too…I think it happens to all 2nd babies. They just spend a little more time on the floor. Good thing it grows back!

    Yep! I think that's what it is from too. Poor, patient 2nd babies :)
