around here.

This week has been a challenging one for sure. Miss Hadley has been sick all week long! She's had a fever and pretty much laid around all week. The fever lasted for four days off and on, some times it would be 100.9, and at one point it was as high as 103! Scary for sure. Poor thing. She is getting better and the fever has gone away thank goodness. It's rough seeing your little one not feeling well, she is a trooper though. 

Looking forward to this next week, we leave for vacation!!! Can't wait to see all 3 kids together on the beach! Thinking Hadley will never want to leave. Glad this week is over and we can start over with good health and vacation. Good times. 

Happy Friday!

52 weeks of Hadley : 29/52.

I'm going to be taking one photo of Hadley every week for a year in 2016. Nothing fancy.
No background setups. No fancy props. Just Hadley in everyday life.

Happy weekend and TGIF.

how i spent my off day this week.

Started off the morning with some yogurt and eggs for breakfast. She is starting to use her utensils more and more, a bit messy of course, but she's using them.
After nap time, we had an outfit change. Guess that dress was bugging her. She wanted to eat lunch outside in the hot humid heat! Ugh. She loves it outside so much.
After lunch we went inside to the air conditioning and just played. We sit in her room, play with her tea set, sit at her table, play in her reading nook, read books, play some more.
She found her baptism necklace that her Grandma gave her, I put it on her and she wanted it off immediately. So I made her take a picture with it on before we took it off. She wasn't too happy but got over it. We've been keeping the thermostat at 77 degrees when we are not home to cut back on our utility bills. I managed to keep it set at 76 degrees while getting ready at the same time! I was proud of myself haha
After Kev got home from work we went to Smale Park to get out of the house and cool off some. Somewhere that was outside and with water? She was in heaven.
After the park we walked over to the old Party in the Park and listened to some music. George was exhausted and was laying down in the backseat in a space big enough for one person. Cracks me up.

Love my off day!

Marko : Good luck."
Emily : "Just one stomach flu away from my goal weight."

bits from the weekend.

Saturday morning started off with a long walk just me and the babe.
Brady and Natalie came home and Hadley was super happy to see them, especially her big sis. Mowed the grass after the kids got there, it was so nice out!
Saturday we headed to the lake! Miss Hadley amazes me everyday, she sat her little booty in the back of the boat all on her own and stayed there while we drove off.
After dinner we headed out on the lake so Brady could go wake boarding. Hadley kneels on the dash of the boat while we are going fast.
Saturday night one of the houses on the lake had this awesome fireworks display probably because it rained all weekend during the fourth.  It was pretty sweet!
Saturday night around 4am, Hadley did not want to sleep.  She kept crying and rolling all over in her bed so we put her in our bed and after a half hour or so she was out till around 9am.
Sunday just hung out at home, pulled all of our weeds in the front yard. Looking better than ever. For our yard that is.

Happy Monday folks!
