chaotic recap... seventh edition


Oh what a wonderful week.

If only Andrew could take a day off work every week...



this was our Valentine's Day...



We played inside.  We went for a long walk outside.



I took a million pictures...







We opened presents...





and Andrew cooked... and made chocolate dipped strawberries... with PC the decadent chocolate chips... best way to eat fruit ever.

and after we put the girls to bed...

we had our own stay-at-home date







during dinner I remember saying that this was the best Valentine's day ever... and I meant it ... and we've had some spa filled, gourmet restaurant style vdays of past.... this one topped them all.

the rest of the week seems to pale in comparison but here goes...


I've realized lately that there are far too few pictures of me + the girls... since I am often the one taking the photos... so I will have to get all preggo self portrait style and shoot me some pictures in the mirror...


Alice looked a little confused at this whole approach


like Mommy, what are we even doing?  You point the camera at my face not at that shiny reflective thingy!

sorry but Mommy's gotta do what Mommy's gotta to do to prove that she was here... through all of this...


don't worry... the camera will still mostly be pointed at you...


so I can catch faces like this one.


and so I can catch you two in the act of talking to each other


of making each other laugh...


and the things you do to reassure each other that you are here...

I will never get tired of watching that.

....

I received a surprise in the mail this week....



Michelle whom I guest posted for last friday said she sent a little something in the mail.... well it turned out to be a lot more then a little something!  I can't wait to try out all of this stuff with the girls!  (especially the memory foam changing pad... that pad looks comfy!)

........

Alice has decided she prefers to feed herself... here's a little play by play of how that discovery went down...


where's my food?


I'm gonna eat this strap if you don't hurry up!


Mommy!


alright... that worked out just as I'd planned... Mommy came at me with that thing that puts food in my mouth and I successfully stole it from her!


now if I shove it far back in my mouth will the food just fall off?


come on food, fall off already!

what is this whole using my mouth to lick off the spoon deal that Mommy keeps talking about?


oh well... mission accomplished for today... I'll tackle that whole getting food off the spoon on my own thing another day.


....


yesterday we got some good news...

Andrew got a new job...

at his current job...

so I felt like baking (and drinking wine)...


blueberry muffins yum....


happy weekend!
