Our baby is almost 2~

Some of Marleigh's birthday party supplies came in today and they are CUTE! I can't believe that she is almost two! Our party is on April 4th but her birthday is on the 5th. So tonight we (Marleigh and I) started "talking" about her birthday party and her turning 2. You can see what she is MOST excited about when we started talking about it. As you will see, our "talk" was interrupted....

We are a little late on the notification still but we are getting much closer to potty training!

Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler!!

The Mardi Gras holiday is upon us! Even us Northerners in the state get into the Mardi Gras spirit. it isn't quite the fiesta of the south but....I GET 2 DAYS OFF NEXT WEEK! The kids, however, do not. What? Oh what shall I do with my time you ask.....I'm painting...doesn't that sound like a blast?
We've been in our house a little over a year and we still haven't gotten a lot of the work done that we've wanted to. Last Monday, Presidents' Day, Matt and I got busy putting up some moulding in Marleigh's room. We have it almost finished and hope to finish this weekend...her a couple of pics of our baby's big girl room. No more crib for this big girl!
Waaaa....(yes, I cried) Here's a pic of some of the work....hopefully it will be finished this weekend.
Isn't she a big girl? She LOVES her new bed! And she hasn't offered to climb down. When I put her down at night she doesn't climb down. Who knows how long this will last but I sure am thankful for right now!

We had a great weekend last weekend at MeMe and PawPaw's! We miss them so much and wish they lived closer. You can see in the next pic that Mason was already getting upset that we were leaving!

Miss Marleigh also got a new tutu. I had a ball making it for her and want to do a few more! She thought it was pretty cool too! She is my girlie girl for sure. All this week....every morning as we are getting ready to walk out the door she starts asking for her purse. She is the cutest thing...saying "Uh puss?" With her palms up and cocking her head to the side! Too cute! What am I gonna do with this girlie-girl?

Christmas is over....back to life as we know it!

And I am not one bit sad about it! Now, don't get me wrong...I LOVE Christmas. I love everything about it, ESPECIALLY my two weeks off of work! I love spending time with my children and our families. I love seeing our babies enjoy the magic of Santa. I love teaching my son (and soon my daughter) about the true meaning of the holiday. I enjoyed Christmas Eve Candlight service at Matt's parents' church. I love staying in my jammies all day long! I Love Christmas.

I also love getting back to a routine. I love feeling productive and yes, I love my job. I love hearing stories from Mason about school. Okay, so I don't love the homework time but I do love seeing my son learn. He's reading. My baby boy can READ! I don't just mean, "cat, hat and bat"...I mean "always" and "change!" My baby girl is saying "because!" What?! Oh and did I mention that she is sleeping in a big girl bed? She took a nap in her big girl bed last weekend. Last night she asked to sleep in her big girl bed so I let her go to sleep and then (chickened out) and moved her to her crib. As I type, she is asleep in her big girl bed. I am trying to leave her there but I'm not promising anything! I catch myself wanting to baby her. I don't want her to grow up. I'm not ready for the baby stuff to be over! Sure, it will be nice when she's potty trained and there's a lot to be said about all of the other self help skills but this is the last one. I won't get this again until I have (hopefully) grandbabies which I hope is at least 20 years down the road. Here's my baby girl in her big girl bed!
