I’m sorry to say this is yet another huge catch all post from the last few days. I don’t mean to be annoying with my massive blog posts, it’s just what’s fitting my busy schedule right now. I could just do one photo a day every day if you prefer. Let me know.
Ember loves. Ember loves mommy, loves daddy, loves Brooklyn, loves Sierra, and loves Payson. She loves people, she watches their faces intensely, she listens to conversations, she breaks out into the brightest smile any time the speaking is directed at her.
Ok, so Ember is a very happy baby. Except. When mommy puts her down and she doesn’t want to be put down. Then Ember is the most sad baby ever. So I wear her a lot. I’ve blogged about this already this week, I know. The other day I had to cook and didn’t want to wear her against my belly since I was worried about her feet getting burned or bumping something. And she just plain old is in the way. So I tried to put her on my back with my woven wrap but just couldn’t. So I put her in my tie on wrap instead.
Payson went to bed after school time and I thought it would be fun to play beauty salon with the girls. I was in need of some extra girly fun that day. We went all out with makeup, hair, clothes, jewelry, nail polish and even perfume! The girls asked if we could have a tea party since they were all dressed up. The way they asked is pretty funny, I can’t remember which girl but one of them basically said that they just have to have a tea party since they were dressed up so nice. haha
I was actually eating and drinking tea with the girls (yep, we had real tea, too!) and at one point Ember grabbed my little tea sandwich and was bringing it to her mouth as fast as she could to taste it. haha! I got it from her and let her suck on a slice of apple a little bit. I can’t believe she’ll be starting solid foods in a few weeks!
Then it was time for Ember’s nap. She still only naps in my arms or the wrap or the swing. Her old swing (bought when Sierra was a baby and used for three kids) broke last week. I was so sad. I hate spending money. hahaAnyway we went and bought a new one. We were going to just get the cheapest we could find but this one plugs into the wall and that’ll save us a ton of money on batteries!
I was so very proud of her. She would look at me after every little thing she did to see what my reaction was and she was beaming when she saw me smiling or raising my eyebrows all impressed. Gosh I love this girl!!
Brooklyn was making a flower and Sierra made Tinkerbell.
Today Allan took work off and took Brooklyn to the mountains to go snowboarding! Which makes today an extra packed Sierra school day! I have a ton planned for her and she’s soooo excited. We’ve already had a full, good day so far (we just finished lunch) but the afternoon (while Payson sleeps!) is going to be a blast! There will be brownies, clay, shaving cream letters and lots more! Yay!
