Today was a good day

I made my husband try to take a few pictures of my sweet Olivia's CURLS on the back of her head. Granted, she does not have a lot of hair... but I am just so thrilled with the small amount she does have!I also took some pictures of Olivia and daddy this afternoon. I have said it before, and I will say it again- I love watching my husband with our children.


Today I found the FUNNIEST blog I have EVER read. Seriously hilarious. It is written by a stay-at-home mom of 6 kids. The blog is called because I said so . I laughed so hard my husband took a picture of me reading it....


This morning I cleaned my house.... well, I cleaned the living room and kitchen which is impressive if you are me. I have been trying to keep my floors debris and choking hazard free. This has been largely successful... other than the layer of toys and the occasional cheerio. But I did have a scare with Olivia today when I took the kids outside into our yard- she managed to pick up a paint chip off of our deck and she put it in her mouth and started gagging and crying. Poor kid. She's fine. But it scared me.

Olivia can crawl all over now, which is great but also means I have to pay REALLY close attention to her ALL the time. I sort of liked the stationary baby stage. But I must admit she looks especially cute crawling down our hallway starting at herself in the mirror. She can also pull herself to standing and practices that skill constantly throughout the day. Of course this often results in her falling over which she does NOT enjoy.


I don't know what happened to teething but the drooling seems to have tapered off. Of course she still is refusing to sleep for any length of time and she is super clingy and a tad on the whiny side ... but nary a tooth in that adorable mouth of hers. Who knows.


My precious son Owen, who is 3 turning 4 in October, helped me bake a peach pie today. Oh he was so cute and so proud of himself for helping. It was a really fun time together for he and I.
Here is a picture of Owen with his finished pie and some rice krispie treats they made with Grandma.

My husband took a bunch of pictures of us all today. My mom was here for the afternoon (by the way the bedbug situation is all done, her landlord fumigated the entire building and gutted the man's apartment where they started so all should be well now). Here is Aiden (who is 5 and starts kindergarten in less than a week!) and I...

Aiden and Olivia have a very sweet relationship developing. They are so cute together. Olivia's face just lights up every time she sees Aiden.
Here is Olivia staring at Owen and wondering what exactly he is doing...It is basically impossible to get a decent picture of my three kids all together at the same time but we gave it a go...

And here is my darling, well behaved, peaceful and quiet sons...
Here is Grandma Patricia and Olivia...
And Grandma with all three of my munchkins... Today was a really good day. I enjoyed my family. And as a point of interest the pie Owen and I made tasted very good.

You have a beautiful family.

You have a precious family!

Oh, and I too have WAY too much reality going on and have always wanted a fairy godmother.
