It’s all systems go when Evie wakes up in the morning. I have to get her changed and ready for the day, not to mention myself.
Downstairs we go. Evie usually decrees what she would like to have to eat. This day she was all about getting to have a muffin. To be honest, some mornings it's a battle. Other days, she is helping her Daddy make up a smoothie. Since she is such a picky eater we often go with what she wants for breakfast - choose your battles right? Lunch and dinner time though, it’s whatever is being prepared. We ask her to try new foods, at the very least.
On the other hand, Addie is easy going. While Evie eats I’ll usually have some time to wash bottles, enjoy my breakfast, and make a cup of tea or coffee. She's happy since she nurses as soon as she wakes, and she's a happy camper while in the Beluga Wrap. Some days though, she is ready to have some apple sauce, and baby cereal right away. Almost always she wants a bottle to top her up at some point in the morning.
I am so thankful that Jason is able to work from home. The girls have their Dad around. It means he is able to spend time with the whole family, that the girls are able to have quality time spent with both of us.
Spring has hit with fill force, it actually feels like we skipped spring and went right into summer with the hot weather we have been having. It was time to do some gardening around the home. Our flower boxes needed some tending, and marigolds are finally in bloom. Gardening is the perfect way to keep little hands busy, and to learn. Even Addie got in on the fun, and mischief while we were outside. It was totally her idea to spray her Daddy and sister.
