"Emma's Baby" Jacob turned one a few weeks back. At the rate I'm going, I may never post the pictures from his party :( We got the cutest thank you card in the mail this weekend which reminded me that I had not even looked at the pictures I took yet. Noelle was so excited to see them and especially loved the ones of Jacob eating his cake with his hands.
Noelle started "school" this month. She's going two days a week and the jury is still out on whether or not this is a good idea. I think the reality that it's not just a place where you get cotton candy (like she did on the grand opening day!) set in and she doesn't like the fact that Noah doesn't get to stay with her. We'll see how this week goes. The first week was great but last week we had some tears and that isn't going to work for me if it continues. I am really happy with the school itself, though!
I don't really have a right to complain because my Daddy's Girl doesn't wake me up in the middle of the night but my poor husband should be complaining up a storm (but he won't...not his style!). Ever since we transitioned Noelle out of the crib, her sleep pattern has been a nightmare. We didn't get to experience this fun with Noah since he has always slept soundly in our bed (yep, bad habit to start and I don't even want to think about how we're going to break that one...I keep saying it will happen in time!). I'm not sure if Noelle even slept last night! Good thing for me that she is head over heels in love with her Daddy and that's who she wants to play with overnight :)
We had this organic and totally-not-processed cake last weekend and it was seriously the best cake ever! I so wish we had a place around town that could replicate this cake. I'm going to check out Whole Foods and see if they can come close. It's probably best if they can't, though! Lord knows I don't need any cake...
Last year, we went to visit Uncle Kyle and Aunt Erin in March. The kids still haven't seen real snow but the plan is to take them back to "Snow Mountain" (Stone Mountain, GA) so they can see fake snow again. We went in March last year and it was just way too hot. So, the plan is for Grams and I to brave a 7 1/2 hour car trip with the kids in February to repeat this fun trip. I keep repeating...it will be worth it...it will be worth it!
Afterall, I know I will end up with pictures like this which I will treasure:
