It is 9 am and both girls are still asleep... I don't know what to do with myself. Emma hasn't slept in this late in a long time. Of course, it could have something to do with her late bedtime the past few nights. On Tuesday, she received candy and valentine's from her friends at Mother's Day Out. She had two pieces of chocolate and was bouncing off the walls all afternoon and evening. We knew we needed to wear her out so we played chase and hide and go seek through the house. It cracked us up to hear the things she was saying during this game. "Come on people, this way!," "Come on people, run this way!," "We have to get the monkey!" (Side note: the monkey is the current animal that receives the most recognition in our daily lives. Monkeys have been known to lurk in her craft cabinet, hide out in the bathroom, and hang out on the roofs of the houses in the neighborhood, while eating the houses.) The game ended with several family "dog piles." Daddy, mommy, Emma and Bella...don't worry Stella didn't participate in the pile, she was sound asleep in the bassinet that she is quickly outgrowing.
So for the past few weeks our mail has not been exciting at all! No new magazines to do the "initial" flip through, not even a Potterybarn catalog to see the same furniture in again. Both Monday and Tuesday have made up for the past few weeks. The postman knocked on or door with 2 boxes, and then we went to the mailbox to find another package! Tuesday we come home from picking up Emma and another package was sitting on our porch! All were special valentine gifts for the girls and sweet valentine messages for the family. Thanks family for sending the love and some exciting mail. Kelly, those adorable cookies were soooooooo yummy.
So, I have to post a picture of Stella. The other night before her bath, I layed her down to get her undressed and she would not lay flat! It was so funny.
