Around here, we are: watching Taylor pull herself up to a standing position! She’ll be walking in no time and she has just started crawling (happy and sad tears). Enjoying flowers that look of spring, hiking big mountains with a girl on each of our backs (Livy was going for a yoga pose in that pic below but resembles a little cheerleader – optical illusion that she’s on the edge of the mountain :)).
We’re also practicing drawing thank you notes with steady hands, touring Kev’s job site (a hospital his company is designing here in San Diego) and admiring the view from the top, taking a spare moment to caramelize the pecans for a lunch salad (guilty pleasure), playing with friends in the jump house at Sea World, gravitating towards doctor play from princess dress up and preschool – then back again, smiling at how the silly relationship between these two little munchkins evolves. Feeling thrilled (and well rested) after Taylor moved from cosleeper to her crib in the nursery.
Also, I ordered one of those Spatty’s from Shark Tank and am finally using up that last 20% of most of my makeup. Scotch Gard claims to be the ultimate stain protector – I’m putting it to the test by spraying down my favorite kitchen barstool cushions (where Liv frequently enjoys breakfast, lunch and unreasonable amounts of coloring).
Does this week feel totally thrown off because of the Monday holiday? Hope you’re having a great mid-week day!
