Dear Sweet Pea &Bumble Bee

Every Day is an Adventure!!

megsmart:

Saved this beetle (?) from the tub and put it outside (trying to teach madden to be kind to all things great and small). We placed it out front and madden says, “have a great day Mr. Beetle, be safe, go home to your mommy and daddy.” He may be a bug whisperer!

Dear Bumble Bee:

Week 24 photos are all off color, just like the week.  

This was your first week at the sitters.  The first day you cried the entire time and didn’t eat. Then the next day the sitter applied some of the techniques that your auntie Molly used and you did just fine.  

I was sleepless that Monday night.  Its so hard not to be with you and your brother while I’m at work.  Plus child care cost a freakin arm and a leg (seriously, it’s like an extra house payment).  It already started to get better and I know each week will slowly become routine! The dilemma arises in the fact that I love my job and I need to work because it fulfills my need to make the wold a better place.  Then when I’m home with you guys on the week nights, all day Friday and the weekends I feel like we make the most of it.

So little darling, hang on.  It will get better!

The icing on the cake was your teething/cold.  No sleep for us and I took a day off to hold you while you cried:(

Next week will be AWESOME!!!

Love,

mom

Dear Bumble Bee:

Here are your week 23 photos!

Sometimes there are those weeks where it is so hard to only choose 10 photos because I love them all!  Your cousin Tora have you this onesie that says “Lettuce Turnip the Beet”  and I adore it!!  

This was your last week with your auntie molly taking care of you,  Your week 24 photos (I will post soon), look less happy.  More on that later!

You are wonderful, fabulous, and amazing!

Love,

Mom

Dear Sweet Pea and Bumble Bee:

I left work as soon as the clock struck 4, I had an idea!  It was a rainy day and I was  missing you two.  I knew I wanted to make the hours we had together count!

When I picked you guys up from day care I told Madden I needed his help making a fort so we could wear PJ’s, drink hot chocolate, and read books!  He enthusiastically agreed!!

It was a lovely night and these are the moments that I cherish!

Love,

Mom

p.s. poor roe was teething and wasnt the happiest baby, but I think she still had fun!

Dear Sweet Pea:

This week you have chosen to be HULK! 

"Hulk Smash," in a two year olds voice is rather adorable! Out of all your superhero costumes, I think this one is your favorite.  Why, I have no idea!  

What will next week be?  Maybe back to batman? Superman? Captain America?  or Spiderman! I’m excited to find out!

Love,

Mom

p.s. imagination is a wonderful thing!

Dear Sweet Pea and Bumble Bee:

Dinosaur side by side! You are both ~5 months old in these photos!I’m not sure why I get such a kick out of look at your side by sides, but I do:)  I guess its a momma thing:)

Love,

Mom

Dear Bumble Bee:

An adorable blue dinosaur, OH MY!

You played the part of “roe-celopterous” so well in your brothers dinosaur movie we made a few weeks back (it turned out great and is filled with cuteness)!  

Your brothers old crochet dino outfit came in handy for the movie as well as for your crochet outfit project!  I added a pink bow, and voila! You became the cutest darn dino and wore it well little one!

I love these days as being a mom!!

Love,

Mom

p.s.  Dinosaur are not just for boys just like how kitchens are not for girls!  I will try my best to make sure that you and Madden grow up knowing that!!

Dear Sweet Pea and Bumble Bee:

There is nothing better than hearing children laugh except watching your own children laugh!  Melts my heart.

Love,

Mom

Dear Sweet Pea and Bumble Bee:

Why yes, we did just happen to have 1 pink and 1 blue shark towels which inevitably was perfect for SHARK WEEK!

You two are by far my most favorite sharks of all time!!

A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!

Love,

Mom

p.s. Madden only wanted to take a few photos, but click here  and here to see some of Madden when he was younger in his towel:) 

Dear Sweet Pea and Bumble Bee:

SHARK WEEK happened last week!  Of course we celebrated (Just like last year)!

  1. Shark attacks baby toes!
  2. Playing with sharks in a pool.  Definitely a must:) 
  3. Shark hat from last year.  Thank goodness I hang onto this stuff! Take note that madden poured his own strawberry sauce, which he called ketchup.  Nothin better than ice cream and ketchup.
  4. Bomb shark ice cream and Erryn and Molly invention!
  5. Shark shirt and a cute surprised face!
  6. Shark puzzle and water bottle from $1 bins at target:)  I mean how could I pass up a glow in the dark puzzle!?
  7. Lots of hands “helping” and then this mama had a quick realization that no matter how cool a glow in the dark shark puzzle is, it may not be worth trying to get kiddos to cooperate.  We were 10 pieces away from completion when Madden decided he was done and wipped the entire thing off the table :( Easy come easy go!
  8. Family watching some awesome shark shows!  We stayed clear of the shark eating human type shows and stuck mostly to the science behind a shark kind of show.

Madden was totally into it!  I hope to teach him how incredibly beautiful these creatures are and that we as humans are by far the scary predator.  The sharks need our help to survive and that sharks are an important part of the ecosystem! Respect nature!  

Love

Mom
