But the usual blinding sun that shines through our window was replaced with dreary skies and we could hear the cars driving through all the puddles left from last nights rain (which I slept right through) My sink was piled high with dishes from the weekend and I wanted no part of washing them. In fact, they were there until 5 this evening. I was able to squeeze in a quick work out while Ezra hung on my back while I attempted push ups or how he followed me around the house as I did lunges or even when he laid across my stomach as I did sit ups.Ezra thinks I am playing when I am trying to work out. I guess I do look fun as I do jumping jacks and squats and other things. I would love a membership to the gym, but Marshall says no. He doesn't think I would go, but I would prove him so wrong.
|I have nothing to do with these duck lips. He did this all on his own.I swear.|
|Duck lips shown again here. I promise I did not teach him this.|
After they left, I tackled the dishes and Ezra helped me with dinner. Ezra wanted to try everything that I cut up for dinner. Ezra tried a raw green pepper, a raw red onion and cold sausage (don't worry it is already fully cooked) and Ezra's new favorite food is cherry tomatoes. He pops those babies in his mouth like it's candy! I am so glad he likes to try new things. Healthy new things,too! Ezra is also great about telling us when he is hungry and I fed him before Marshall got home. When Marshall got home we had dinner while I nursed Eli and Ezra played at our feet. When we told Ezra that we had leftover birthday cake and ice cream from Marshall's birthday weekend, we asked what he would like and he yelled with glee, "ICE CREAM" This boy likes his ice cream.
He ate is while he sang "Happy Birthday" to his daddy (again) and then he thanked him for having a birthday.
We are try our best to tire Ezra out before bed time, but I think he wears us out more. Our bedtime routine has become a nightly ritual that I have grown to absolutely love. Ezra now knows to draw it out just a little longer buy giving us all wet smooches and hugs after a story, songs and prayers.
We have another busy week and I am also looking forward to Eli's 4 month appointment on Friday. I can't wait to see what this hunk is weighing in at these days.
Have a great week!
