January Days

This post is just a bunch of different pictures I have taken recently.  We enjoyed our two weeks off of school and especially enjoyed having Daddy off on New Years Eve and New Years Day.  We very rarely get 2 days in a row with him so it was a special treat!

Matching sisters are my favorite :)

I just bought Ellington some play-dough for the first time.  How terrible is that?!  She has played with it at church and school before but never at home.  I don't mind it and she doesn't make a mess...I had just never thought to buy any before.

Everyone always says, "She's just the happiest baby!".  And, she is!

One day while we were still off for Christmas break, we went and met Daddy for lunch.  I snapped this picture before we left.

See?!  So happy!

One of the hardest parts of parenting two children when your husband works almost every Saturday?  Birthday parties.  I don't know why but I find birthday parties particularly hard with two alone.  I usually end up EXHAUSTED and sweaty.  Ha!  I text two of my friends before one recently and asked "When are kids old enough to be dropped off at parties??!!" Parties also usually fall during times when Finley would normally be sleeping.  Anyway, parties are just hard for some reason!  One of Ellington's best buddies from school had a princess party about a week ago.  I was honestly dreading it.  It was right during the middle of Finley's longest nap of the day and I just knew that she would be super fussy the whole time.  Thankfully, the party was the easiest I have tackled with both alone yet!!! Maybe it will start to get easier?!

All of the girls dressed up in princess dresses and it was PRECIOUS.  I am SO sad I didn't take my camera!  It was a super cute party!  Ellington had the best time!

Ellington came up with this pose and requested that I take her picture :)

We also celebrated Finley's 6 month (1/2 birthday) with cupcakes!

We had some REALLY cold weather recently.  Ellington and Finley stayed warm in their fleece polar bear jammies!

Ellington was taking a bath recently and requested that Finley be put in the bathroom with her.  Ellington did a great job of entertaining her!

Finley's getting so big and loving her exersaucer!
