I decided I wanted to start a weelyk blog post that is kinda like a digital scrapbook but not. I want to not only remember the pictures I took but what was going on when I took them.
The last few weeks I have been under the weather and it seems like each day another child has become under the weather. The sickness finally got Bradley. I really hoped that would mean some cuddle time but he is just not a cuddler. Boy am I glad I spent the first few months holding him all the time now because getting to hold and cuddle him since he can crawl is rare. I did get him to let me cuddle him for about five minutes after his nap the other day and was able to snap this picture.
As everyone know this week is Valentine’s. Last year I made cute Valentine’s for the kids to take to school but between being sick, going to all these appointments, getting ready for Bradley’s birthday and planning family dance night at the school; I decided that I was going to go simple and just buy some that each of the kids would like.
I was prepared in that sense that I bought them several weeks ago. Noah and Taylor both brought home notes about their Valentine’s parties. I asked Alyssa and asked Alyssa and finally she told me they are not having one. 😦 They are only allowed two parties so third grade is having Christmas and End of the Year. Since I had bought her some we decided she could take some of her close friends one. I did explain to her that she probably won’t receive any though.
Now that Bradley is crawling really well he is into everything. He is pulling up on everything. Most days his falls are not very graceful. He does not have the best balance and with another ear infection his balance is even more off. Over the weekend he fell and hit his face on the bookcase in the girls’ room. I am so hoping his eye looks better before birthday picture time.
We also went to my parent’s house over the weekend to celebrate my Dad’s 72nd birthday and I completely forgot to take any pictures. Bradley didn’t get much of a nap and was less than happy most of the time we were there. The big kids all had a blast. They played at the “farm” aka the barn. To them the house isn’t the farm only the barn is. I guess that’s because the cows and pony are all over there.
