What a beautiful week we have had and are going to have for a little bit longer! We have spent a lot of time outside and playing with friends over the last week and a half. I am trying to give Mattie play time with kids close to her age. I know she misses that. She still talks about school and her friends all the time. Trying not to feel as guilty about it though.
Last weekend we went to the Easter Egg Hunt at Matt’s work. Isn’t it great that some companies still do things like that for employees and their families? I hope it is something that they keep up even as the company grows. Mattie found the prize egg and I was so proud of her. For the past few years she has had a little help but this year she did it all on her own. I’m a little competitive when it comes to my kid 🙂
On the hunt!
This is the second year in a row we forgot to take her basket so I got to walk around with an egg carton. I’m just glad they had them available. At least I made it with both of my kids. I think that is a feat in and of itself.
It was sooooo cold that day! Last year Mattie wore a cute little sun dress and this year we all had to bundle up. You can’t tell from this picture but Maryn had on the cutest little bunny outfit that Matte and Gee Gee picked out for her. She held the other prizes while her tall sister hunted for eggs. What a sweet sister!
We went to church on Sunday for the first time in a while. We kept the baby with us and she did a great job! Mattie had a wonderful time in Sunday School. When I asked her what she did she told me that she “made a leaf, walked around in a circle singing Hosanna, Hosanna to Jesus.” It was so cute! We also celebrated Nic’s 9th birthday on March 25th. I can’t believe I have had him nine years. He is such a great dog! He is so good with the girls. Mattie loves him so much!
Happy Birthday Nic!
It was Mattie’s idea for us to make him a cake. We even put a candle on his cake and sang happy birthday to him. He loved it! Mattie is so thoughtful 🙂 She loves helping in the kitchen and making special treats for birthdays.
On Monday I called and made a dentist appointment. Luckily they had a cancelation and were able to see me that day. It was time for a cleaning but I had also been having some pain and sensitivity. I have had so many sinus infections over the last couple of months that I never know when the pain is my teeth or my sinuses. I am so glad I was able to get in that day because they did x-rays and I am going to have to have a root canal and a crown. How does that happen? They said my I hardly had any tartar and that my teeth looked good, yet one of them is rotting from within? Mystery to me. I also went for my six week postpartum appointment. Things look good but I have to have a follow-up sugar test to make sure that the diabetes is gone. So in a 3 hour period I now have to make 4 more doctor appointments and have no one to keep my children. They are long appointments too. I have no idea what I am going to do. I need to start making friends with my neighbor. This is my biggest problem to date as a stay-at-home mom.
On an up note Maryn Kate is now 6 weeks old! She has grown so much. This week she has started having more alert time. She is going to through a little growth spurt and and has eaten more often. Our only road bump is that I am having trouble getting her to eat from a bottle. She would do it last week but I haven’t been able to get her to this week. She will barely take a paci. That isn’t too much of a problem because she is only fussy when she needs to poot. The bottle thing is a little tricky. I am going to try other types of bottles and just she if she prefers one of the others. Mattie wasn’t very picky. They are already so different.
6 Weeks Old!
As I was typing all of this Mattie was literally hanging from my head, covering my eyes, kissing me, laughing, pulling my hair, etc. We need a schedule BAD!
