This week: 12 July 2017

Making cupcakes (that were delicious!) and all these cuties needed to find themselves a step stool. Cracking my up. Also, it's really hard to make cupcakes when your counter access is this minimal?!

I gave Wade a sandwich without pickles. He asked for pickles and then I told him we didn't have any. Obvious devastation. 

This is Melia. My girls love Melia. Blake especially, which is saying something because she doesn't really care much about anyone. And I love Melia, cause she loves playing with my girls. Wonderful all around. 

Blake was off doing whatever, so Jac helped herself to both ranches. Double fisting it. However, I should say that Jacqueline shares EVERYTHING with Blake - she likes me handing her both bottles so she can give one to Blake. In the car, I hand her snacks and she hands them off, then begs me for more - she even passed over a lollipop! How sweet is that? So cute. 

Jac has also been cleaning up after herself. I give her a napkin and she'll wipe up her tray. So awesome. Blake obviously needs one too, but usually ends up eating it. 

My jumping Jacqueline really just likes being in charge. She's started saying "no, no, no" and wagging her finger! It kills me, it's so hard for me to tell her not to do it. She's also been shoving and hitting - it's easier for me to tell her no on that, cause she's just being a turd and not being cute. When Blake gets mad she's started hitting herself in the head. Oh little kids. 

Wade asked me to take a picture of him with his finger through this dream catcher. Definitely a picture worthy moment. But look at that face! He's been asking me to watch him and look at him all the time - often when I do then he has to hurry and decide what he's going to show me, it's usually lame, I love it. 

July 11th was "cow appreciation" day at Chick-Fil-A. So I dressed everyone up as cows and I was their cow herder. Wade freaked out when I put his hat on him and wouldn't take a picture, logical. Blake is terrified of the big dressed up cow mascot - I saw him coming and I tried getting her attention, but she was zoned out and the cow touched her, I wish I had a camera on her at that moment. Total fear. She recovered quickly when I showed her the balloons. 

Both girls were barely on the mend when I took this picture. Both of them had fevers. I swear we're sick 50% of the time. The night Jac had been crying while I was painting, but Husband said she finally quieted down. We went into check on her and she had thrown up. Poor kiddo. But, here's the weird part: she was awake, sitting in the corner of her crib, looking straight forward...didn't move until I touched her. My poor little baby! My poor baby that has been hating messes and being sticky this week. 

Oooo, on a happier Jac story: she pooped in the toilet today. No, we're not potty training. But she was working on something, so I grabbed her and put her on the pot. She was so proud of herself! We have friends coming next week, and when they leave we're definitely ditching the diapers! 

So, about friends coming next week (I am soooo excited!) and I am working so hard to get the basement done by the time they get here! Moved the toilet. Got bold with paint (it was a little terrifying too as I painted sark colors everywhere!). Husband accused me of being boring and painting everything grey (um, I've painted nothing grey in this house! And I just got a bright red rug in the front room!), so I got crazy bold. It's coming together really well...just hoping it comes together in a week.
