We have dug ourselves out of the sick house, thrown away tooth brushes, and sanitized every surface in sight. It is nice to be reporting from a house full of well pdeople! It's even nicer to be sitting out on the front porch again (this time not with a glass of milk!) enjoying the gorgeous weather and browsing through some hysterical photos from this past weekend. Molly & Bella made the trip down to Charlotte this past weekend for a few days packed with fun - we had SUCH a blast. Emerson had so much fun with Bella, it warmed my heart countless times to see how they already love each other. It also gave me some serious mother's guilt that she doesn't get more time playing with other little kids, but hopefully I'll get over that part soon. I'll try to do pictures in synopsis here of our weekend.
As always, the girls had a blast together in the bathtub. I don't know why we didn't take video of this; probably because we were all busy laughing too hard at them. It is so funny how they get each other so cracked up and they are both belly laughing so hard as they doused themselves, us, and the entire bathroom in water splashing around like crazy.
While we tried to push Em's bedtime back when the time changed so that she got to stay up until 7:00 (late night!) with us, we gave it a go for 2 weeks, and it just wasn't working well and she was not adjusting very well, so we have been back to getting in the bath at 6:00 and she's been sound asleep by 6:30 for the past three nights and seemingly very happy about it! I'll try not to feel so sad or guilty about the little amount of time that we get together during the week and instead soak up how glorious our Monday afternoons and weekends are together!
