As of late, our summer pace has slowed just a bit. The normal ebb and flow of being home and being on the go has the pendulum swinging more towards the home front. My Bella stirred things up a bit near the end of the week, bringing some contractions 10 minutes apart. Orders were given to get off my feet and take it easy, a little hard to accomplish with 3 babies but I'm a rules follower, so we did just that for a few days.
It amazes me how they roll with it and don't scale the walls like I think they will and minus some extra bickering among little ladies, it's relatively peaceful.
My friend Kerri dropped off some movies, doctor's orders you know, and a suggested new recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Who knew 2 teaspoons of cornstarch could reveal such a fabulous cookie I didn't think could possibly be improved.
A pleasant surprise.
These cookies are amazing, I lost track of how much dough I consumed.
Being told to take it easy by my doctor and nurse, the hubs was left alone to complete the task of cleaning out the garage and completing the final touches of unpacking and sorting through boxes.
As summer continues to come to a close, we are loving us some time together and sweet time with friends. I discovered the hipstamatic app thanks to my brother Rod and happily used it to capture these little ones relishing in summer, each in her own way.
Happy to use the phrase, a phone dump...
A few errands around town with sun kissed littles.
Lots of time around home, letting mama take it easy.
Summer's stamp of groggy, slow moving mornings has made its appearance once again. Little girls tip toeing downstairs waking up tired mamas and daddies. Little puffy eyes and scratchy voices ask for breakfast and cuddles.
Whether your to do list is work or play, happy Monday!
