My girls came to visit me at work today even though it was pretty darn cold out. We ate at our usual lunch spot (Chipotle on M ST) during winters when it’s too cold to have picnics at Dupont Circle. Their visit pretty much made my day.
Just when I didn’t think it could get any better, I ultimately came home to some fresh-out-of-the-oven, Paleo chocolate chip cookies.
What follows is a photo log of what transpired after they got home and while I was still at work:
Hmm … I wonder if there is anything we can do for Daddy …
Hey Mama … I have an idea!
Let’s see … did we leave anything out Mama?
Oh … let me stick some LOVE in there for Daddy …
Apply some muscle …
… bake, wait … then in my tummy!
It has been a long while since either Mama or I have blogged. Our little start-up company has recently taken on another contracting deal, so both of us have been uber busy. A whole lot has happened since our last post, and I am not even sure where to begin. I guess I just wanted to jot something down for now to let family and friends know that we are all doing very well.
Today was cold and gloomy, but we decided to force ourselves out of the house for a nice walk to Old Town to stock up on some locally-grown veggies at the Old Town Farmer’s Market.
We decided to stop by at the Marina afterwards to let Everly stretch her legs. She truly is the most wonderful daughter. Literally everyone that walked by made it a point to chat with Evie and complement her on anything and everything. She amazes me every single day. I am a proud father to say the least …
There was a great playground a block away from our previous apartment. We would go there multiple times a week to let Evie run around and play on the swings. Until recently though, we hadn’t found a good playground close to our new home.
This weekend I took Evie for a walk around the neighborhood and we happened upon an awesome playground less than a block from our house! It was conveniently hidden behind a grove of trees and a couple of baseball fields, so we couldn’t see it from the main road.
We have stopped by everyday since we found it! Evie loves the swings, the mulch and the merry-go-round. She runs toward it yelling: “Wheeeeee”. It’s hilarious!
I am so glad we found another place where Evie can run around, eat mulch, and play in the dirt.
Today has been super dreary and drizzly. So we have been super lazy, spending our time reading, napping and lounging in bed sheet tents.
In my laziness, I have not taken any pictures. So these pictures were from an evening last week when the weather was perfect for one last run around the yard before bath time.
The forecast for this weekend is supposed to absolutely beautiful. We are planning to get out and about to enjoy some good food, good weather and good family time. I hope everyone has a good weekend!
Evie is cutting three molars right now. Poor thing.
When her other teeth came in she was a little uncomfortable, and her sleep was a little off, but cutting these molars is a whole different ballgame. She is drooling so much she could probably fill a bathtub and her sleep is…well let’s just say there hasn’t been much sleeping around here.
There are good parts about a teething baby though. Along with all of the drool, sleepless nights and general fussiness, she has been so lovey-dovey. She will dole out hugs and kisses and snuggles like there is no tomorrow. Who can complain about that?
Hopefully these teeth will push their way through and we can hope the rest of her teeth come in one at a time. Meanwhile, I’ll take all the hugs and kisses I can get.
