-We had a pretty laid back weekend. Besides going to our neighbors' house for a barbecue, we didn't really do a whole lot. It was nice to relax and just hang out.
-I have been in full on clean/organize/purge mode. I've already put together several boxes of stuff to donate/sell and it feels so good! Believe it or not, I have already filled all of the bins I bought at Ikea on my birthday. All of Emerson's outgrown toys are packed up and organized by age to make room for her Christmas gifts. My craft room is almost finished. I can actually walk in there now without worrying about tripping over something or stepping on a straight pin.
-Today was grocery day and Emerson was an absolute angel at the store. But only because I let her watch Elmo on my iPhone. I know. I know. It's terrible. But it's the only way I can get her to stay seated in the cart. My homemade seatbelt just isn't cutting it anymore.
And of course, a random post wouldn't be complete without some random iPhone/Instagram pictures. So here they are in no particular order:
-Emerson has become a pro at babywearing. I fashioned a faux Moby wrap out of my scarf one day and she wore her baby all over the neighborhood. (With her cell phone in hand)
-We ventured over to the park across the street twice last week. Once in the jogging stroller and once in the Ergo carrier. Both methods worked well so I'm sure we'll have a repeat this week.
-We're doing anything and everything we can to make it feel more Christmas-y around here. Yesterday we had Christmas tree shaped PB&J for lunch. Emerson couldn't eat it fast enough.
-Pretty much 95 percent of my phone pictures are blurry these days. But I still keep them and post them because I think they give a glimpse of what life is really like with our wild girl. She is constantly making me laugh with her silliness and sweet personality. Yesterday she was being so silly and kissing everything while sitting in my lap. I told her to kiss her foot. Of course I was just joking but she promptly brought her foot up to her face and gave it a big ol' kiss. She thought it was the funniest thing ever.
