THE SMITH FAM
On Sunday night we celebrated our sweet nephew’s birthday. Jonah, the little man, turned ONE! So proud of that guy!
Monday was such a beautiful windy day so we headed out on a walk with neighbor friends. It made me so excited for Spring! Yahooo!
On Tuesday, I had the best rainy, girls-day ever. My friends, Mine’ and Kirsten, had the day off so we met for breakfast at First Watch. Emmy, my “little eater,” refused all the foods she loved and opted for spitting them out and throwing them to the ground. After breakfast we headed home to make some popcorn, put on our sweats, and watch the Bachelor and a movie. Loved it! I think Emmy was starting not to feel too hot on this day.
The next day I got the stomach bug and spent most of the day lying on the floor, trying to entertain Emmy, without throwing up on her. 😦 Good thing she got a great babysitter and mommy could recover by napping. We were feeling much better but very groggy on Thursday. Emmy found a bag of tortillas to get into…
Thursday night we got a call on our “make me move” listing on Zillow and made an appointment to show our house Friday night. So all night last night and all day today I’ve been scrubbing this place floor to ceiling, hiding massive piles of toys, and stuffing our cars with unappealing “junk”. Oh boy- this whole selling the house thing seems hectic. So, I decided I deserved a big caramel frap. Hmm.. probably not but it did make me feel better.
SIDE-NOTE: Once home for her nap, I tried out “Old English” wood polish. MAN OH MAN! I could do an infomercial for this stuff. It took our old worn out looking cabinets from drab to fab in seconds. Informercial-esque, yes! But, seriously. Try it. I wish I had a looooong time ago.
THE JUAREZ FAM
On Tuesday, Jonah’s top left tooth finally broke through the surface and we had a very happy little boy for the first time in several weeks!
That night, Norah spent the night with Gram and Jonah spent the night with Mimi. This was our first night to be kid free since Jonah was born. It took us EXACTLY one year to let Jonah spend the night away from us. We celebrated with a late dinner and movie date. Love this man!
Wednesday was Jonah’s official 1st birthday. Mimi snapped this precious picture of him (and his new tooth) when I picked him up.
On Thursday, Norah and I colored for a long time before bed. Some nights, we just need some special alone time after Jonah goes to bed! I was so proud of the way she colored in this heart I drew! She actually tried to stay in the lines 🙂
After naps, we went to see Aunt Tori and her date in their “fancy clothes.” She was excited to tell Aunt Tori how beautiful she was and Tori’s date, “You look handsome,” but she froze as soon as she saw him. The girl never gets shy, but I guess she thought Aunt Tori’s date was pretty cute ;).
