Princess Party

Friday, October 30, 2009

Last weekend was the "annual" princess party at the park district. It's hosted by the park district's school of dance. My mom and I took Rori again this year. I wasn't sure if she would enjoy it as much--since she is a whole year older now :) Thankfully she still loved it. She wore her Halloween costume which is Princess Jasmine. I think she looked lovely.She met Snow White, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Cinderella, and more! Then the Princesses taught all the girls a dance. Rori loved it and told me that she is ready to take ballet now. Thank goodness, I was worried that my only girl wasn't going to want to take ballet--which was her mama's passion growing up!

It was a wonderful time and I can't wait until we can take her to Disney to really meet the princesses!

What I've been up to

I have really wanted to get on here and post, but I haven't been able to, so I fiugred I'd document the reasons why I haven't had a chance.

First, I've had lots of laundry and dishes (I didn't feel the need to take a picture of those things, because I'm sure that everyone knows what that looks like ;) )

Second, I have been attached to this

What is that contraption, you ask? That is a hospital grade breast pump. I'm pretty sure I could milk a cow with it.

Third, for some reason, I don't know if it's the arrival of Brendan or if it's cabin fever because the weather is cold and rainy, but Rori and Liam are out of control crazy. They have been fighting with each other and not listening to us. It's getting a bit better, but it wears Bill and I out.

I've also been trying to catch a few of these:

I asked Bill to be my stunt double, because if you think I'm posting a picture of myself on my blog less than 2 weeks post partum, you're crazy!

With all of the above, I've also been enjoying this:

and this

I also wanted to add that my dad is doing well after his surgery and wanted to thank everyone who prayed for him last Monday!
So, in a nutshell, that's what I've been up to!

Big Boy!

This is going to be quick--just pictures, I'll post the birth story later, and I wanted to thank my friend Anna for posting the stats! She offered to post the pictures but of course we never got them emailed to her :( So here is my handsome boy!

He’s Here
