Sweet Weekend Moments

Both my babies are crying in their beds right now. I have no idea what is wrong with Charlotte- she usually falls right to sleep after her bottle. Grayson has been “off” all day, and I’m kind of worried about him. He cried like he was in pain several times today, and now he’s crying in his sleep, which breaks my heart.
It’s been a stressful weekend- Ryan had knee surgery Tuesday which ended up being a more extensive/invasive surgery than we thought. He can’t lift the kids or help me with feeding, bedtime, etc. which has been a challenge.
I feel like I’ve been pulled in a million directions the past few days- someone is always upset or needing something, and I’ll admit I haven’t had the best attitude about having to do it all. I’m glad I pulled out the camera this weekend; I just loaded these on my computer and they made me smile. These are the moments I want to remember- not the tears, frustrations and exhaustion of the past few days.
Friday was the annual year-end party for Grayson’s school. I left Charlotte with a friend and got to spend a few precious hours relaxing by the pool with just my little guy. The school’s music therapist did a session at the party- Grayson LOVES the guitar. Too bad I don’t play!

A friend of a friend passed down her play kitchen and shopping cart to Charlotte. She was smitten from the start. I tried to actually play “kitchen” with her- cooking, chopping vegetables- but all she wanted to do was dump out all the food and pots and slam the door over and over. Whatever.

I just love this picture of Charlotte. We’re singing “If You’re Happy and You Know It”- can you tell? My mother in law made her cute dress and the monogrammed flower iron-on is from my favorite etsy store. 

My babies, swinging at the park. I’m so glad Grayson still fits in a toddler swing- we swung him for a long time and he seemed to really enjoy it.


I bought these matching dresses for Charlotte and me on Zulily a few weeks ago, and they came Saturday. We wore them this morning to church- so fun! I think I may become addicted to finding more matching outfits for me and my girl!

    I'm sorry it has been so rough lately. I hope the knee heals quickly so he can be up and around… You need help and I don't blame you for having a less than stellar attitude. 🙂 But the pictures are just darling! I have a guitar but I don't remember any of my lessons. One day I'll get enough time to have hobbies again. 🙂 And you look just beautiful and glowing in that picture! Wow. 🙂

    Give it another year and that kitchen will become pretend play mecca. Stells LOVES cooking me stuff now. 🙂

    Love the matching outfits!
    Sorry it's been so rough around your place lately. 🙁
