Hanging out with moms and babies is a favourite. I went to The Drake for Highchair Hangouts on Tuesday. Q did this the whole time, which was quite pleasant. The sandwich I ordered was amazing! If you are at the Drake for lunch order the eggplant sandwich, you will not be disappointed. After lunch I did some Christmas shopping at The Drake General Store.
I caught this little smile this week.
On Wednesday it worked out that I could take E to T-ball. I had just put lip glass on his dry lips and it stung so that is why he is not really smiling. I have since cured (for now) his poor dry lips with this oil.
My sweet husband surprised me with these flowers, card, cupcakes, and Tiffany charm on Wednesday. He gave me a Tiffany bracelet with E was born so now I have this charm to go on it.
E has said he wants everything for Christmas - everything he sees on TV and everything in the toy catalogues that have come in the mail. A friend at work said that her mother used to have her cut out what she wanted from the Wish Book but could only pick things that would fit on one piece of paper. So I took this idea for E. This first pile are the things he didn't actually want and he still had to keep narrowing it down. He did con me into letting him have two pieces of paper, one for Santa and one for the grandparents.
Look at these two! Q is napping and E is playing quietly by himself. Definitely a favourite moment of my day.
A friend of mine made us this tasty soup with lots of good stuff in it - kale, lentils, carrots, etc. It was really colourful although this photo doesn't really do it justice.
The Christmas decorations come out this weekend!! I'm looking forward to getting our house in order.
