we love fridays!

Friday means weekend, and weekend means DADDY! Leah woke up from her nap today and ran to our room saying "dadadadadadadad!" They're great buddies... She gets so so excited when he gets home each day.

Today we went to a Caspar Babypants with Clara and Liz. It was great :)

Oh No!

The best week of the whole year and no updates to show for it! Here we go!

Last week was awesome. On Tuesday, birthday day, after present time, we went out for breakfast with Grandma Lauren, Clara, and Liz. Leah took a little nap and we headed to UW Hospital to visit where Leah was born... we brought the nurses some brownies and visited with the fishies in the tank. :) For lunch we went to Agua Verde, a yummy mexican restaurant. Leah had some quesadilla and yummy lemonade. When we got home, we relaxed, napped, and then had dinner and sang happy birthday, and ate carrot cake. What a great day!

On Thursday, Leah had her pajama birthday party with all of her friends - Clara, Lilah, Noelle, Annika, Jimmy, and her Westside friends Paige and Lenna! It was so fun.

Over the weekend, daddy was out racing his bike, so us girls (Grandma Lauren too) hung out around the house, worked on projects, went for walks, and played in the garden.

This week has been pretty quiet. We said goodbye to Grandma Lauren on Monday, and relaxed on Tuesday and Wednesday. Today we went to Grass Lawn with Clara, Lilah, Noelle and Olive, and played in the garden.

Birthday Eve!

Today we played around the house and finished some crafty projects to get ready for Leah's FIRST BIRTHDAY! We have a great day planned tomorrow, so it's good that we got a chance to rest up today!

Birthday Month, Days 10-11!

Leah had an awesome birthday weekend. We went to the zoo on Saturday... it was a gorgeous day, and Leah loved seeing the elephants, the flamingos, and most of all, the fishtank at the kids' Zoomazium. We got a season membership, so we'll be back to the zoo again soon!

Sunday was even more gorgeous out than Saturday! We went to Panera for lunch, and to Home Depot to pick out some flowers... and then we came back home, did work in the garden, and enjoyed some yummy kabobs for dinner.

Birthday Month, Days 8-9!

Well, we were hoping to be feeling well enough to have some fun days, and fun days we had! 2 mornings of shopping, 2 days of playing at the park, and 1 great lunch at Panera. Tomorrow we're headed to the zooooooooooo!

Yesterday was Leah's due date. I like her on the outside much better. :)

Birthday Month, Days 4-7!

Birthday Month Day 4 was Easter! We went to church, had some yummy breakfast, and relaxed most of the day. Birthday Month days 5-7 were a bit less exciting. Leah, Daddy and Grandma were all sick, so we did some more relaxing around the house... Hopefully all the ladies will be healthy tomorrow so we can have some fun!

The easter bunny came early to our house (because Grandpa Mark is leaving tomorrow morning) - Leah got a great Elmo easter basket, filled with eggs and an easter little people set. We had a yummy easter breakfast of easter eggs, pancakes, easter rainbow bread, sausage, orange juice, and orange jello salad.

After our big breakfast, we relaxed and played most of the day. Leah is walking most of the time now - she finds it much easier to carry things around that way.

It was a great day. :)

Birthday Month Begins!

I am proud to announce that Leah's very first birthday month has begun! Her Grandpa Mark and Grandma Lauren are in town to visit, and we've had lots of fun already.

On Wednesday, we went to Panera for lunch - Grandma and Grandpa got to experience the amazing eating talents of Miss Leah Madison. She ate an entire bowl of mac 'n' cheese, 2 slices of baguette, and a GoGurt. Not sure where miss skinny minnie puts all of that food...

On Thursday, we girls had a marathon shopping day - Leah got a great spring/summer wardrobe at BabyGap, and a really cool comfy chair.

Today we got ready for Easter! We dyed easter eggs, made some great bread, made orange jello, and had yummy pizza for dinner.

Not a bad start to birthday month :)
