She loves her Rapunzel hair!
They both had "butterflies" land on their fingers
After getting home from Walker Sunday the girls took great naps and we hit up Our Lady Of Grace's 6pm teen Mass. I love this Mass and the music at it. After Mass we surprised the girls with a trip to Sebastian Joe's to celebrate National Ice Cream Day. A great ending to a great summer vacation.
Something must have been going on to the right of me :)
A little art time with Daddy
I don't want to forget the love of learning this girl has
Reading a little poem
Helping to make French Toast
Libby learned how to swim all on her own this week, from start to finish. She's pretty proud. "Hey Sally, do you wanna come swimming with me?" Prepping for next summer...
Don't mind the fact, they almost hit a little kid with Ariel...
We were in need of a little swimming/sun break so we decided to head over to the West End for their Wednesday concert series. It was kind of fun to go on our own and just be able to focus on the girls. It was also very nice to not have a stroller and to trust the girls to stay close and follow when needed.
They got to make frisbees
Getting so old!
She was particularly silly this afternoon when we were sitting on the step enjoying snack together, waiting to head to pick up Sally from her park program.
I don't remember all of her specific one liners, but one was. "Hey Mom, when Baby comes, umm I can't wait to come to the ummm the ummm dentist?!" Insert HUGE belly laugh.
She knew dentist wasn't the right word, but couldn't think of the word hospital .
Daddy was gone for 3 straight days, add in the the make up from lack of sleep from being on vacation, the hot days and the start of the 3rd trimester with a third pregnancy and you result in one slow moving mama. The girls wanted a tea party and mommy took the chance to rest on Sally's bed, play DJ and take in the girls.
They wanted to make sure to share some tea with Squirt.
Another precious line from the girls lately. "I will never stop loving you."
|"I love you Mommy and Baby" Always ALWAYS including baby :)|
Sally had T-Ball this week at her Sports Sampler
|Waiting to retrieve a ball hit her direction|
Work trips suck, but the reunion is pretty priceless
And just like that he was gone again for class. Only 23 TOTAL sessions left, but who's counting.
At dinner it came up the Grandma used to braid my hair in 3 braids and I would sleep with it in to make my hair "curly" The girls wanted to give it a try
They added some accessories. Libby added the arm around Sally's back...
Some day I'll forget the long days of Daddy going to class and the nights with just me and the girls. In the not too distant future the girls won't have to ask, when they wake up in the morning, if Daddy will be home for dinner, because he'll be home every single night.
Until then, we'll make the best of it...
A fun little Skype session with Nana and Grandpa
Happy Friday Folks, enjoy your weekend!
**One of Joey's crewmen came back with this finding from one of their job sites. The steel company my Dad used to work for...kind of cool!
