We’ve been having so much fun that I haven’t had time to even think about posting. It’s kinda sad. And so I don’t even know where to start.
Our life since my last post:
Monday: Maybe I had Noah? And we played outside. Or was that Tuesday? Wish I hadn’t deleted all my calendar info on my phone to make room for new stuff. If I hadn’t done that, I’d know what I did last week.
Tuesday: We had fun? Or we played with Noah outside? Or both?
Wednesday: Still don’t remember. Oops.
Thursday: I had class. And Emma and I did stuff. I’m sure we did.
Friday: Emma pushed herself to sitting for the first time. I remember that. Don’t know what else we did.
Saturday: Weekend. Matt was home. I’m sure we did wonderful things. (Is it terrible that I don’t remember any of this at all?)
Sunday: Matt went golfing for the first time this season. It was very cold. Emma & I took a good long nap, I do remember that! After golf, we dropped Emma off at Grandma & Grandpa’s and went out to dinner with Joe, Nina, Anna and Michael. The new BW’s is not so good. Also, it was silly of us to go to a bar during the MSU game.
Monday: Butterflies! Emma and I drove up to GR and had lunch with Matt. Then we all went to the Meijer Gardens to see the butterflies. It was wonderful. I love it every time we go. Emma was so cute, watching the butterflies and trying to touch/eat the plants. Next year will be so much fun with her walking around and trying to catch them.
Tuesday: I don’t really know what Emma and I did yesterday. Oh! Noah was over and we colored eggs. Emma’s first egg coloring was fun. Noah had a lot of fun and Emma kinda just relaxed in her high chair. I love coloring eggs. I really wanted to hide them and have Noah look for them, but he’s not quite old enough for that yet. Next year, of course! The kids were wonderful – we all took a nap, which really helped my mood. It’s so interesting watching Noah develop. He’s at the point where he’s just starting to use his imagination. He was talking to a toy fish and having it talk back – so cute! Plus we found out that Emma loves bananas. Yum! And I started to teach Noah the “Apples and Bananas” song. :)
Today: Matt & I had dentist appointments this morning. We went together and took the Monster. He watched her while I had my cleaning and then the sleepy girl and I came home while he had his. Then I convinced him to “work from home,” so he was here all day. Wonderful! Emma & I almost had a picnic with Aunt Jessie, but she didn’t feel well so that didn’t happen. Instead I got a lot done around the house, we played with Daddy and even went outside. It was a good day. Plus we had (local pork) brats on the grill. And then Matt said “Okie-dokie Artichokie” while he was playing his computer game. Which is worth posting in my bliggity-blog. Plus we’ve had the windows open all day and it’s warmer in my house than it’s been since October! I love it.
Tomorrow we’ll go to Baby LapSit at the library and I’ll take Emma over to Aunt Ashley’s before class so I can get started on my next paper (four weeks left of class!). Also, Dad is going to get into Michigan tomorrow at some point. I can’t wait to see him again. I’m sure he’ll have great stories.
So that’s what we’ve been doing. I wish I could remember more of it.
And in case you didn’t see it on my FB page, here’s the video of our trip to see the butterflies:
