Everett hangs out in his bouncy chair while I cook dinner or while I do the dinner dishes.
He typically only lasts 10 minutes before he’s screaming and won’t be calmed down until I pick him up and hold him.
This day he stayed quiet more than usual because the little kids were entertaining him. My kids are very willing to entertain him, problem is Everett only sometimes appreciates it. Sometimes it makes him cry more because he just wants mom to pick him up already and not send distractions! 😉
I didn’t ask the kids to come in and do this. I was cooking and noticed them bringing in chairs and blankets to set up camp by their brother. And then they just sat there watching him and talking to him the entire time I cooked! They’re so freaking cute!
Ember got a new dress from Costco with a horse on it. Sierra’s favorite animal has been a horse since she was really little. So because the three girls have horse outfits they had a horse club. Payson was feeling super left out and crying about not having a horse shirt so I drew a horse on his arm. lol
I decided a couple weeks ago to try to take pictures of me and my kids really often. I am having major self esteem issues lately and am tempted to just not be in pictures but I know I’ll regret it. As much as I hate myself now I’m sure I won’t hate my current self when I’m ten years older. So for the sake of future me and my kids when they’re older I’ll be in pictures.
Payson loves holding Everett. Payson’s the least gentle, though, so I have to be near watching the whole time. They’re cute together, though. Everett truly adores Payson. Payson does this one sound/saying that gets Everett to break into a huge grin every time. I should get it on video sometime!
I try to do crafts and story time and fun things with Payson and Ember when Payson is out of school. They were coloring and cutting and gluing and also using hole punches and paper punches with colored paper. Hours of fun.
His little sleeper bed has a vibrating machine that he holds while he falls asleep. Sometimes he turns it off by accident. But sometimes he turns it on when he wakes up crying in the middle of the night and goes back to sleep!
