Serene Sunday


I know Sunday is the day of rest, but they seem to drag on. I cherish these calmer days I have with the girls though. Before long they will be in school.

We didn't do much since Matt has been in more pain lately. He's looking forward to wednesday, so he can get it taken care of, but then he will need to heal from surgery. I feel so bad for him. :(

Alaina and I had so much fun playing house, reading books, watching movies and cooking all day. I recommend reading my favorite children's book called, "The Giving Tree" by Shel Siverstein. It's a wonderful childrens book on giving and brings a tear to my eyes every time I read it.

We were playing in her playhouse market and the things she would say just amazed me. For example, she was sitting there asking me what I would like to buy, so I gave her some play food. Then she told me that's "56 dollars". 56 is my favorite number, so last time we played, I told her she needed to give me $56 and she remembered that this time. I couldn't stop laughing :D

Then she was pointing out the A and N to Matt on the computer. Matt asked me if I taught her that and I said only a few times when I would write her name. This age can be so much fun, because they pick up on everything. On the other hand, daddy needs to watch his potty mouth, because she picks up on that as well lol!

Here are some pics from today. Enjoy! :)

Happy 5 months, Bella! She is getting so big!
The Giving Tree is a great book. You should check out Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. I can't even get past the first page without crying!

Thanks Ashley! We should be fine. I do wish you lived closer though. Maybe you should look for houses between your families house and mine ;) Much love

I got Ethan that book. Isn't that the book when she sings him a song Love you forever then at the end she's old and he carries her to her bed and sings the song to her? That is a great yet sad book. I let Ethan take all those books with him to my sisters, but I will have to ask her if she read it to him agian. Take care <3
