--First and foremost, Derek took his boards today!! Hooray!! I know he is thrilled to have that over with! We've had a LOT on our plates lately between life with a newborn, adjusting to our new school routine, Derek's clinic moving to a location in the hospital, Derek getting the hospital ready for flu shots...it's just been a lot! So we're happy to have one thing over & done with!!
--I hate to even mention this next one b/c I don't want to jinx us, but Brady has slept through the night for four out of the past five nights!!!!!!!!!!! His naps are still totally hit and miss (LOTS of misses) unless I'm wearing him, but I'll take him sleeping through the night over naps any day of the week! Who knows if him sleeping through the night is just a fluke or if it will stick, but it sure was considerate of Brady to sleep through the night leading up to boards so Derek was well rested for boards!
--I know we're totally late to the party on this one, but we are LOVING the Wunderlist app!! Life is crazy right now, but this app keeps Derek & me on the same page even on those days where we don't get a chance to have a complete conversation without someone interrupting us! We have a shared grocery list, which has been a huge lifesaver since Derek has been shopping for us lately. And we also have a shared to-do list for projects around the house.
--Prior to moving, we were always go-go-go on the weekends trying to squeeze in as much fun as we possibly could with Daddy before he headed back to work on Mondays. Then came the move, then came a baby, and then came new school routines....all of that to say, we haven't been out exploring as much as we typically did. But I think we're turning a corner!! And life as a family of five in Las Vegas is slowly starting to feel more normal. This past weekend, we visited Bonnie Springs which is like an old western town with shows, shops, & petting zoo. We're hoping to visit Mt. Charleston & a local orchard over the next couple of weekends!! It's so nice to start feeling like "us" again!!!
--My parents are coming next week, and we're all so excited!!
And here's a random hodge podge of pictures for you to enjoy :)
|This was the last time we've tried "quiet time" in their bedrooms ;)|
|They're both doing great on their new bikes!!|
|Hadley pushing Brady home after dropping Shelby off at school one morning|
|Shelby is seriously AMAZING with Brady!!|
|On Wednesdays, Hadley & I go to storytime & check out new books at the library. It's like Christmas morning for Shelby when she comes home from school on Wednesday afternoons to all the new books!|
|Hadley will sit for a while and read with Shelby & then she moves on to crafting.|
|Shelby could seriously read all day long if we let her!|
|More reading after school one afternoon.|
|Watering the garden with Daddy after dinner one evening! I'll have to get some new pics soon, our garden has really taken off recently!!!|
