Participating in Week in my Life with Melissa at Adventuroo has been fun, but I'm a little happy we're nearing the end for two main reasons.
First, my days are all very, very similar. We have the same routine. The twins do random funny stuff. William laughs. And we go to bed. :)
And, second, it's quite difficult to take pictures of little ones who can walk and who really, really, really want to touch the camera. There have been several times either Cole or Ellen has been doing something funny. When I pick up the camera, they see it, stop what they're doing, and run toward me. And then I don't get the shot. But, I've still gotten some pretty cute ones.
Apparently it's fun to climb into the booster seats Cole and Ellen eat in:
As you can tell by the lack of recent posts, I've been slacking a little bit lately. I have no excuses...I just lost steam. But here's what we've been up to the past couple of days.
Friday was a great day. The twins and I had fun playing; William napped pretty well, and we got to see Aunt Sara! She was technically here to get her new iPhone, but we'll pretend she came to see us. :)
For some reason, Ellen is obsessed with putting her finger in William's mouth. She gets so excited when she sees that he's in a place where she can get to him. She immediately sticks out her finger and zeros in on his mouth. At one point, I let her sit in front of him while he was in the Bumbo seat. And she started talking to him! It was adorable! I tried to get a video, but of course she stopped talking and started staring at me.
Ellen walked around with a Nutri-Grain wrapper stuck to her foot for a while!
About 30 seconds later, the bib was over William's face.
Saturday was a wonderful day for me. I was productive and I got to sleep.
My productive activity? I finally cleaned out my closet! I have been wanting to do this since I got pregnant with William. It never seemed like a good idea, though, since I couldn't really fit into anything in the closet so I couldn't make a good judgement about what I would or would really wear. I had some time Saturday morning so I just go down to it.
My closet looks practically empty, so now I need to go shopping to fill it back up! :)
Ellen has loved sitting in the Bumbo lately; sometimes she gets stuck though. :(
After all of that work, I decided I needed to take a little nap. Cole was taking care of the three crazy cuties, so I crawled back into bed around 10:30 or so.
After a lovely nap, I opened my eyes and couldn't believe what I saw...it was 3:00!!
The rest of our Saturday was filled with football. One of my favorite moments of the afternoon (I'm still so sad I didn't get a picture of it!) was Cole sitting, more like lounging, in Big Cole's lap. It was so cute. They just sat on the couch watching football together. So far, Cole is definitely the best "lounger." Ellen is too curious and wants to play with too many things.
Getting ready to leave for church.
Sunday was an easy, laid-back day. We hung around the house then went to church.
I'm so glad I documented a Week in my Life, but, boy, it was work. It will be fun to look back at this one day, though, and see what we used to do. I may try to do one day a month (or something like that) and document it in detail again. I've definitely taken more pictures of the kids this week than I have since William was born!
I hope you've enjoyed this peek into our lives!
