Not only are the kids eating better under my 24/7 watch, but in true I’d rather be doing anything than cooking Erin fashion, I’ve also turned a lot of the food prep over to them. It’s clear from the picture above that they enjoy it as much as I do.
He also gets pretty excited for his nap. You can tell from this picture of him peeking out of his hiding spot right after I gave him his binkie the other day. It’s always a fun game of chase we play, but once I catch him, he admits defeat, rubs his little arm, and puts his head on my shoulder while I carry him to his room. And the latest? He just started blowing me kisses from his crib. I melt into a puddle as soon as I close the door. Then shortly after melting, I book it to get as much as is humanly possible done during those precious two hours. Funny how I’m always so excited to put him down for a nap and have a break, but after about two hours, I start to miss him and I’m ready for him to wake up. Then 10 minutes after he wakes up I’m wishing there was a nap #2 in my future. :)
And how cute are these new Reefs for my little shadow? He HATES them. Can’t stand the feeling of something in between his toes. It’s kind of hilarious when I put them on him. He walks around funny for a minute and then sits down and starts trying to pry them off. I’m sure he’ll get used to them at some point. And he’s got time. Flip flops work year round in our neck of the woods.
So what have I been up to with my girls taking over kitchen duty and Kole spending all of his spare time hiding from me and figuring out how to take off his new shoes?
