Venturing out with 2!

Evie loves to cook so she made her own cinnamon toast this morning.

She might have had a few licks of cinnamon-sugar!

Evie waiting on her Daddy to come in from the driveway. She waits so patiently for him to get in the house.

"He's coming. He's coming. Daddy's home!"

Evie snuggling with Henry before bedtime.

Evie demonstrating Henry's new swaddle blanket which may have been the secret last night.

We have had a really fantastic day. That makes up for yesterday which was a really hard day for us all! Everyone slept well last night . . . even me. Henry only woke up once at 2:30 to eat and went right back to sleep. That made a huge difference. I am not sure what we did besides our usual. I fed him about 9:15 and put him in Mose's Basket. He woke up at 2:30 and I fed him and then he slept until 6:30. Maybe he will take after me and sleep through the night early. My mom told me that I slept through the night at two weeks. I am not expecting this to happen again but sure was nice last night. Evie slept until 8:30 this morning and Henry sleeps most of the day still. That gave me a chance to get us ready for our outing.

 It took me a LONG time but I got all three of us out of the house at 9:30. I was so proud! It went way better than I thought and I did not even use one thing out of the diaper bag for Henry. Evie worked her way through the bag. I went to Christina's house for a board meeting for my MOMS group. I had lots of helpers! Maybe, I will get really brave and venture to Sonic next. We all went outside tonight for Popsicles and playtime. It's hot but that is just part of summer. Now, it is time to get a few things done. I miss having my afternoons to get things done while Evie naps but it sure is nice to snuggle Henry. I am trying to have special alone time with both kids but it is easier to do it with Evie. She is so much fun these days although she is still keeping me on my toes too.


  1. love the pictures! good for you for getting out with two - it is definitely a lot more work, isn't it?? :)
    libbi seems to be more work for me these days than laney. i guess it's probably because she has an opinion about EVERYTHING and laney is just content to be along for the ride. :)
    henry's spiky hair just makes me smile and evie looks so cute in her matilda jane dress.

  2. You are so smart to get out of the house early!!! It gets easier and easier:).
