Day 171-181

I’ll have you know I’ve been working on this post for 4 days now. Not that there’s anything remarkably time consuming in it…I just couldn’t stay awake long enough to get it finished. Ha!!!

We’re winding down from an exciting and eventful week(plus) and gearing up for another!

The exciting news…Our pool is done!! The days of dirt tracking through the house aren’t quite hindsight yet, but I’m telling myself it’ll be worth it. πŸ˜‚

As you can see, K is unbothered by the mess and prefers we leave mounds of dirt in the back around her “stage”. πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Her daily request is to put on her boots and go play in “muddy puddles” (thanks, Peppa Pig).

I am SO thankful for all of Chris’ hard work to make it happen and the pure sweat equity he put into the deck! We’ve still got some work ahead of us but at least we have a water hole to jump into afterward. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚

We had a wonderful FriendsGiving/birthday celebration for a friend over the weekend and it’s safe to say L and K had a blast.

L went to town on some strawberries πŸ“
And K partied too hard. I can’t remember the last time this babe fell asleep in my arms. ❀️

It was extra sweet since she’s been killing me with this whole transition to calling me “mom”. πŸ˜’

We attempted to get a family photo since I NEVER remember to do that lately and all it did was solidify why we pay the professionals…

K didn’t want to participate so we were just going to take a photo while she ignored us.
Then Elle flipped the plate over and the chips went everywhere πŸ˜‚

…#ThisIsUs πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚

Speaking of paying the professionals, if we’re friends on social media,l you know we got our Christmas photos back this week and I couldn’t be happier with them! Not only was the end product amazing, but it was a MUCH less exhausting experience than our Newborn/Family session a few months ago. πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚

I’d say here’s a few of my favorites but there’s 4x more where this came from and I’m biased.

I may have had them printed and already displayed all over our house in less than 12 hours…

Keeping with the Christmas spirit, we took Kensie on a special date with just mommy and daddy on Sunday to see the Disney Jr. Live Holiday party! She had SO much fun after she got over “but sister!! We leave sister at home?” (To be clear, we had a babysitter πŸ˜‚)

Watching her face light up with the most genuine smile when she saw Mickey and Santa was priceless – though I still doubt she will sit on Santa’s lap this year.

Not a fan of the sound of blasting snow and confetti πŸ˜‚

The best part is everyone thought she dressed up for the show. Little to they know this is her everyday attire. πŸ˜‚

Of course Elle needed some special time, too. This babe is SO freaking chill that I feel like sometimes I don’t give her enough attention because I am always “go go go”; but the fact that she’s turning 6 months next week was a good reminder to slow down and soak her and all her perfect baby-ness in. ❀️

So we napped in momma’s arms instead of the crib. πŸ₯° (also there’s food in my teeth but whatever 🀣)
The πŸ‘πŸΌ good πŸ‘πŸΌ life πŸ‘πŸΌ
She got extra lovin at FriendsGiving from all her preggo aunties while her big sister slept πŸ˜†
And snuggs for the beautiful hostess

And the answer to the question I’ve been asked 91740 times since Friday: YES WE SAW FROZEN 2! Hahahaha

And she wasn’t interested in photos πŸ™„
Theatre to ourselves had its perks πŸ’πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
Love love love Aunt Emmy ❀️

PHEW! I think I covered the highlights. Sprinkle in some playing, toddler tantrums, visits with friends and lots of laundry and it’s a solid recap. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Oh. And mom friends -KB still won’t poop in a toilet (at home. She does at daycare 😑) so all advice is welcomed. πŸ˜† for now we’re just waiting it out…and bribing doesn’t work.πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
