One. This is the first picture I took of life in 2018. And I think it sums up life pretty accurately. Wes and I were just chatting about how we are going to look back on this period of our lives of dress up and make believe so fondly. I think we only have one or two more years of this so we are embracing it :).
Two. Everly is doing so much better! I am not sure I have ever been more worried about in her in my life (how easily I forget the fact that she was horrible at taking a bottle and sleeping for the first 21 months of her life ;)), but I am so relieved that she is 100% on the mend (in case you missed my first post of the year, she had a spider bite, strep and scarlet fever over the last three weeks). We had a play date at the Science and Technology museum on Saturday and she had the best time playing with all of her friends!
Three. Emma is in full on birthday mode. On Saturday, we went to take a look at the trampoline park where we will have her party and she was describing the exact Moana theme she has been envisioning along with the rainbow cake she wants me to make (wish me luck!). After gymnastics on Sunday, we let the girls do a craft and she immediately picked out the birthday cake (because she is almost six!, duh!!). All she can think about/talk about has been her birthday lately :). We are so excited to celebrate her soon!!
Four. Craft kits are the best. And these are the worst pictures, trust me, I know ;). My mom asked me what she could get the girls for Christmas and we decided that craft kits might be the best - it allows for a lot of free form crafting and it really has been so fun for the girls. She filled the kits with all kinds of supplies and various mediums and every day during the rest of their holiday break, they made all kinds of creations. I am going to blame the jet lag on the fact that I don't have better/more pictures.
