Welp, I did it again.. 3 days to a post. I blame party-planning and house-hunting equaling utter exhaustion at the end of the day and while I completely intended on posting the weekend’s pictures last night, I got sucked into watching episodes 1-9 of “New Girl” and so yeah, it didn’t happen. It’s a really funny show guys!
So here we go.
Day 14/My little lollipop’s first birthday bash/my “cheat” day:
Okay. My husband took this picture. Is that considered cheating? I didn’t even think about it at the time. Well, I wasn’t really thinking about anything at the time except trying to make sure everyone had something to drink and making obligatory minute-and-a-half catch up sessions with all of the people who attended my daughter’s first birthday party that I hadn’t seen in.. oh, I don’t know.. 6 months? Anyway, the 3 hours of the party were a whirlwind and everyone really seemed to enjoy themselves (including me! I promise!) so I think I’ll consider it a success. Unfortunately, Eric (my husband) also didn’t have a lot of time to take very many pictures and THAT is why next year we are paying someone to take photos or are just going to have a much longer/smaller/quieter party. Yeah, I’m thinking we’re probably going to have to pay someone.
Day 15/Bath time is the best time:
Another one taken by Eric! GOD, what was my problem this weekend?! The fact that Eric took this picture might also explain why half of my arm is in the shot. It’s a darn good thing my squashy bee is so cute you don’t notice it right away. So yeah, we spent the entire day house-hunting and I didn’t realize until 7pm (while giving Olive a bath) that I had forgotten my daily Lolly picture and so that is why my husband with dry hands took this picture. I will get it together, I promise.
Anyway, when Olive was an itty bitty we had to give her baths every night in order to make it through her “witching hour”. So for months one through four, that is what we did. At some point we realized she didn’t really need a bath every night anymore (OR we just got lazy) and baths became more of a special treat than an expected luxury. Her favorite thing now is to watch the bubbles pop and slither away between her fingers when she takes her hands out of the water. She also likes to eat them (the bubbles, not her fingers). She also likes to turn herself around and around in the tub and pull herself up to knock all of the bottles of shower products off the sides of the tub, in one fell swoop. Like I said, bath time is the best time.
Day 16/When she’s tired:
When she’s tired, she makes this face.
Oh, and this picture I took. 😉
