today was snow day number 12 for good ol' Lexington and school has already been cancelled for tomorrow. my teacher of a husband will be going to school til july. it was wonderful to have my sweet hubs home for the day but my little monster was actually, kind of a monster. it was one of those days where lack of napping led to one baby meltdown after another. bedtime couldn't come soon enough - for either of us.
but even on the hard days, i have it pretty good. here's a few from the last week trying to survive winter.
emmie just started letting me leave bows in her hair! you have no idea what a huge development this is for us! i have been collecting hairbows for 19 months in anticipation of this! and now that her bangs are constantly in her eyes it's more of a necessity than just an accessory. i wanted to send ben a pic of em in a bow and this is the face she made when i said 'smile!'
one great way to make it through eternal frozen nightmare is with an adorable scarf. this little stinker helped me enter and win a giveaway from my bestie, cory! what are the chances!? i always threaten her to pick me & she never does, now my luck is turning around! i submitted this pic of em in her eclectic joy baby scarf, how could it not be lucky? cory's clearing out all her fall/winter scarves to make room for spring. grab them while you can!
in all the frustrations that come, there are those sweet, totally worth it moments too. we spent the morning at home because the roads were pretty bad. i made breakfast for us which was yummy if i do say so myself. we pretended we were at josie's with the brehms & junkers with chef jen jen.
later on we ventured out. cabin fever is setting in thick around these parts. i cannot wait to feel the warm sun [will that ever happen!?] and take em outside to run around daily. oh man, she can't wait either.
we ate linner as a family in an almost empty restaurant, which was good because ems was a hellion.
soaking up these little moments with my favorite people. hope you're surviving the snow with your favorites too!
