Week in Review (a few days late)

Work was chaos. I have several big projects that are wrapping up at the same time, which means I need about 2 more of me in order to pull everything together. Yuck.

Seeley had yet another ear infection. Poor guy. The tubes are obviously helping, but he still gets uncomfortable when he has infections.

Uncomfortable baby boy + inability to sleep = mommy "sleeping" on the couch holding baby boy. One of my coworkers mentioned how rough I was looking last week and got a verbal beat down. I'm not normally rude, but since this person doesn't like me and is always making snide comments I figured what the heck?! Let 'em have it! I've definitely let Jeremy be a bad influence on me!

We were actually quite social last weekend. Surprising right? We went to a fish fry at a friend's house and stayed out past 9pm. Watch out!! The kiddos were half dead by the time we got home and went straight to sleep. Maybe there's something to be said for late nights.

Those same friends came over on Sunday and we enjoyed the pretty weather by playing outside. They have a little girl who is two, Ava Preslee, and she is one of Emma's BFF's apparently. It was hilarious to watch two bossy little girls try and boss each other around. We're working with Emma on playing softball but she can't seem to make up her mind which hand she wants to throw with. She's left handed in almost everything, but for some reason when it comes to softball she's willing to throw with whatever hand picks up the ball first. Crazy and frustrating.

I'm also working on two parties for June. I'm co-hosting a baby shower for a good friend from college, Jennifer, who is having her first baby, a sweet little girl named Jade whom I can't wait to meet. I can't put any details about the shower on this blog though because it will ruin the surprise for Jenn. I'm really excited, and warned her that it might not have been a good idea to let me do this sort of thing. See, she's having several other showers and since I'm the most competitive person in the world I'm bound and determined that this shower will be the best. :)

I'm also pulling stuff together for Mr. Big's first birthday. I have no idea how he can be turning one already. We're going with a circus theme since that was his daddy's first birthday party. More to come on that.

I also took Em and See to the doc for their 3 yr and 9 month check-ups, despite the fact that Em has been three since November. Bad mommy. Em is rocking right along in the 50th percentile- 31lbs and 36.5" tall. See is holding tight to the 98th percentile at 23.5 lbs and 29" tall. Yeah. Somebody is going to outgrow big sister very soon.

And this is where we have spent most of our time this week, yours truly included.

The kids have been obsessed with this tent. Em even watches tv and eats snacks in there.

Here's hoping I can step up by blogging game next week!

I'm so excited about my shower and so appreciative that you are coordinating it! I'm not sure if I'll be able to stand the suspense until June though... No hints at all??? :)

Jenn-didn't you get Susana's pic from yesterday?! Ha! That's all the hint you get! :) Although you will get one small hint-I'm going to mail you an invite to the shower so you can keep it for Jade's baby book. There might be some clue to the theme in the invitation since you know I'm spastic about everything coordinating . . . :)
