What the girls said this week
Zelda has started to say "My" when she wants something. She'll reach for it, opening and closing her hands, and say "My, my, my."
One day Ellie got my deodorant and started rubbing it on Zelda. When Jason took it away, she said, "I want to armpit Zelda!"
What we did this week
Before anything else, I just wanted to tell you that today is the 10th anniversary of me and Jason's first date, and also we've been married for exactly 250 weeks today.
I love this guy. I have forever, and I will forever.
So, what we actually did this week: Well, the girls and I got ready for Valentine's day. Zelda had her 15-month checkup at the doctor's on Tuesday, and afterwards we went to the dollar store and got some Valentine's Day stuff. Zelda's stats from her checkup, by the way, are that she's 19 pounds 8 ounces (7th percentile), 31 inches long (68th percentile), and has a head diameter of 18 5/8 inches (87th percentile).
Other than going to the doctor's and the dollar store, our week was pretty much just staying at home. The girls and I did a mix of stuff, from painting to playing outside to making and decorating cupcakes to just chilling out and watching Frozen like four times. I worked a lot on our 2012 photobook, and I'm almost done.
Every day Ellie asks me if it's Valentine's Day. The first couple times I showed her the calendar and explained that it's in a couple weeks, but I've given up and now just say yes every time.
We made Valentine's cupcakes using this cake recipe. They turned out really weird shape/texture -wize, but they were delicious. So they're forgiven for being weird. Ellie had a really fun time mixing the ingredients. Every time we ask her if she wants to help us make something, she says, "Okay, we need to start at the beginning."
Also, one day when we were playing outside the girls were driving around in their power wheels, and Ellie put her arm around Zelda to hold her in and keep her safe.
And here are a couple pictures of Zelda:
|Notice the cat's leg on Zelda's back? That's my favorite part.|
And a couple videos for the grandparents (I'd recommend "Underwear Head" to anyone who wanted to watch just one):
And that was our week!
