Hoping to get my blogging mojo back soon. In the meantime, here are several weeks of 365 that I’m behind on!
May 4, 2011: Bennet’s 3-year-old check-up. He’s doing great, and is still in the 95th percentile for height, weight and head circumference! He had to get one shot, which he handled very well minus a few tears.
May 5, 2011: Our local mall had a “Moms Night Out” with free food and non-alcoholic margaritas (since it was Cinco de Mayo.) I went with my friends Brooke and Jess and we had a great time. We even got to do some shopping around the mall and grab dinner afterwards.
May 6, 2011: Date night with our good friends, Mike and Rachel. Great food, great wine and lots of laughs. It’s always fun to get out with other grown-ups and leave the kids at home!
May 7, 2011: This is our first Spring in the new house, and I was thrilled to find these gorgeous orchids blooming in our back yard! I quickly cut them and put them in a vase in our dining room.
May 8, 2011: Mother’s Day! I had a wonderful day with my sweet babies.
May 9, 2011: Bennet has been very into Legos lately. He got lots of new sets for his birthday, and we spend lots of time building with them!
May 10, 2011: Look who’s crawling!
May 11, 2011: My sweet Bean at a play date in the park!
May 12, 2011: Kennedy and her best friend, Addison. We got invited to their house for a play date, and the kids had a great time.
May 13, 2011: Kennedy’s best friend Addison happens to be the daughter of one of my best friends, Amy. Amy and I got to sneak out for a girl’s night, having dinner and catching up without our crazy kiddos. What fun!
May 14, 2011: Crawling, drinking out of a straw…she’s growing up FAST!
May 15, 2011: Bennet went into the kitchen, got the canister of Fruit Loops, and helped himself. So funny.
May 16, 2011: Did I mention she’s pulling up to the train table to play now? Slow down, Beanie!
May 17, 2011: We had our friends, the Postells, over for dinner. They have two beautiful little girls, both of which Bennet has a crush on. The kids had a great time playing with sidewalk chalk and bubbles, and swinging on Bennet’s new tree swing.
May 18, 2011: Oh, how I love the few blissful moments each day when the kids are starting to play together.
May 19, 2011: I bought this tea set at a consignment store to use for Kennedy’s birthday party. Bennet was pretty excited about it, so Andrew had a tea party with him when he got home from work. Even Sophie joined in. Who knew a tea set would be such a hot item!
May 20, 2011: My sweet friend Shelley was several days overdue with her first baby, so we took advantage of her maternity leave time off by grabbing lunch. I had to take the opportunity to snap a picture of Kennedy and her newest best friend! I’m happy to say that a few days later, Shelley gave birth to a beautiful baby girl who I cannot wait to meet!
May 21, 2011: At Kennedy’s friend Addison’s 1st birthday party, Addie didn’t want her birthday cake. When they put the high chair tray on the grass, Kennedy hiked it across the lawn and helped herself! My girl looooves to eat!
May 22, 2011: Bennet is about to be a ring bearer in his favorite babysitter, Liz’s, wedding! His suit came in the mail and I could not wait to try it on him! He is going to be so handsome!
May 23, 2011: Kennedy is going to be the flower girl in the same wedding, and I am making her dress. It still has some finishing touches to go – but I love it and I can’t wait to see her wear it on Liz’s big day!
May 24, 2011: Like I said, my baby girl loves food. She is so messy after dinner every night. I’m always impressed!
