So here are the highlights of my weekend!!
Friday was a snow day so I worked from home and kept the kids with me.
|This was from Friday morning, before Jerry went to work.|
Saturday, Jerry took Emily sledding and Caroline and I stayed nice and cozy at home. I cleared out some of Emily's old books and put the baby ones in Caroline's room. I had to take a picture of these two before I sent them out to the recycling bin. They were two of Emily's favorites...
|You can see by the bite marks and complete wear & tear that these were pretty well-loved :)|
|I just want to bite those chubby little legs. Om nom nom.|
Caroline tried peas for the first time... She's not really a fan. This picture was taken before she realized that what she was eating was NOT her baby oatmeal (that she loves).
I tried it again last night mixing a little bit of the oatmeal with the peas but she was still not really crazy about it. Such a change from Emily because when she was starting out on baby foods she ate everything we gave her with the exception of the jarred ham -- but who can really blame her for gagging at that? But Caroline has apparently decided she's going to be choosy. She's such a laid-back baby I was just surprised that she put up a fight over the peas. Next up, green beans... I'm not optimistic that it will be much different from the peas.
I guess Emily was jealous that I was taking pictures of Caroline eating because she wanted me to take hers while she was
playing with enjoying some Jello:
Yesterday, I went to a mommy's lunch at daycare. Two of the moms are pregnant (one with her second set of twins!) so we got together for a little grown-up time -- except all we talked about was our kids..
I was so pleased with my wrapping job on their presents, I had to take a picture.

After the mommy's lunch, I came home to watch the Packers-49ers game with Jerry. Green Bay played so shittily it was ridiculous. I'm disappointed that they're out of the playoffs, but there's always next year -- and next year I won't have to listen to Fantasy talk because Jerry promised he's not playing in any leagues next year. Until September rolls around and he changes his mind :)
But at least my weekend ended on a high note, in the form of Downton Abbey Season 4 Premiere. What I didn't realize was that it was a 2-hour premiere and I would be drooping heavily this morning. But it was sooo worth it.
I'm trying so hard not to read any spoilers. And I still miss Sybil. Poor Branson.
