I've got some bread in the oven, a sleeping baby and a frosty bevy by my side so I thought it'd be a great time to pop in and say hello and upload a few photos. Tess turned 5 months on the 10th. She's growing and is adored by her brothers & sister. She is definitely a 4th baby. I've fallen victim to the fourth child (or 2nd or 3rd!) syndrome of pretty much not properly documenting any milestone in her life. We've been thinking about starting her on solids. She's ready. There was no camera set up, no bib put on, oh no, this mama just grabbed a bag of some squeezable fruit in a panic when said baby was crying in the aisle of Target and spooged some into her mouth. It worked. She liked it. And stopped crying. She bought me an extra 15 minutes to checkout. Badda-boom badda-bing. Classy act right here. (Chris, if you are reading this, I started Tess on solids). Henry had his first Blue & Gold Banquet in scouts which was really fun. It takes a lot of work to run scouts and I'm grateful for all the leaders involved. Henrys now working on his car for the upcoming Pinewood Derby which will be happening end of April. I think their badges are pretty cool, too! The children wanted to make a cake so we made one and sang "Happy Birthday" to Daylight Savings Time. Henry said he's 'tired' of chocolate cake (how can that be humanly possible??) and requested vanilla with vanilla frosting. Loving longer days. I think the worst of winter is behind us. Fingers crossed.
We had the most gorgeous day of warm weather recently which also coincided with the children getting out early for parent teacher conferences so we went to our favorite slide in Central Park. We had a hoot here last Summer and could not wait to get back. Today is officially the last day of Winter. Wow. There are 21 playgrounds in Central Park and by golly we are going to hit every single one of them if it kills us! I had no plans for St. Patrick's Day but last minute we made some little shamrock pins for the children to wear and to give to their teachers. Remember when I made them for Henry's class? Each.And.Every.Child? I was koo-koo!! The Empire State Building was all lit up with green, of course. New York is amazing. Really amazing. Tess is starting to stir & I've got little ones to get from school soon. Hope you are all doing well! xoxox
P.s. Still in a splint-6 weeks later. Oy.
