Call me a nerd, but I am just a tiny bit ECSTATIC to find out that a BRAND NEW COSTCO will be opening less than 10 minutes from my house in a month! When it’s that kind of stuff that makes you as happy as I am right now (well, that and that fall tv has finally started), you know you truly are a real life stay-at-home-mom. But seriously, if you’ve seen how crowded and ghetto the Costco I currently go it is, you’d be happy for me too.
Some other things that have made my day lately:
*Ruby has enough hair for pigtails! Though, it might make her look even more bald when I tie back all the cute, loose curls. This girl’s hair is something else, being still quite bald on top, but growing nicely on the sides. Oh well. She’s cute enough without a full head of hair, if you ask me.
*We pulled out some Christmas pjs I got on sale last year since they already fit. It love seeing them all holiday-ish. They look like little elves. I think Bennett has a career in modeling, hmm? Alex would rather play with toys than model for pictures.
*Ruby loves dipping her face straight into the bubbles during bath time. She always ends up with this little bubble beard. It makes us laugh every time. And why not throw in a picture of the boys too. Bath pictures never get old.
*The babies have finally adjusted to their new schedule. Nighttime sleep is back to around 12 hours, and naps are great as well. Rested babies, are happy babies. And happy babies, make a happy mom. Thanks kids.
*For lunch today I gave them some avocados, grape tomato pieces, black beans, and cheese. When I realized I was practically feeling them nachos, sans chips, I decided they better have a little squeeze of time with it. I think they liked it. See for yourself. (Of course we missed their initial reaction on camera, but you get the gist.)
*And last but not least, I am very pleased to announce that my triple stroller is now complete! I was getting a little nervous when it didn’t come in the 8 week time frame I was given (more like 12). But the beat up box, all the way from Australia, arrived at my door earlier this week. When I made a loud exclamation of joy as I opened it, Alex mimicked me, joining in the celebration. Ha! I can tell we’re gonna have fun with this.
