This past weekend, Kimmy visited! We had a low key weekend but we had a great time just hanging out together. Kimmy got in late on Friday so we really saw her when we woke up on Saturday.
We went to Ethan's swim class at 9:30 and had lunch at home. Then, Ethan slept from 1-3pm. While he was sleeping, we made this turkey wreath. I found it on Pinterest and it doesn't look exactly the same but pretty similar! You can see the directions on how to make it here.
We probably took a walk when Ethan woke up and just hung around the house. We played with his toys and he entertained us. He tried to ride Evie like a horse and she didn't mind it.
On Sunday, we went out to breakfast at our fave spot that we haven't been to in awhile. But first, we had a funny encounter at home. Ethan woke up at 7 but we were both tired so I told Erik to 1)change his diaper then 2)bring him in to lay with us. Erik only did #2. Ethan was laying with us and hopping around the bed. I said, "He needs a diaper, he stinks!" As I passed him over for a diaper, we realized....HE GOT POOP ON THE SHEETS. He had taken a big poop and it was coming out of the top of his diaper. It got on his sheets, on his PJ's, and on me. YUCK.
He immediately went into the tub, I went in the shower, and the bed got stripped. Pretty gross but pretty funny!
After breakfast, we went to the store to get stuff to make pilgrim hat cookies!
You heat up chocolate chips in a glass bowl over boiling water, stick the marshmallow in & cover it in chocolate. Then, you put it on top of a cookie & draw a buckle on the marshmallow.
Ethan helped by taking his spot on the counter and holding a marshmallow
He had his first marshmallow and loved it
Here are the cookies, minus the buckle.
He took another long nap in the afternoon. I think he is in a development leap because he is doing the three C's right now: Clinging, Crying, Crankiness. I think he is growing at the same time because suddenly some of his pants are an inch too short.
Just doing some reading later in the day
We had dinner & Ethan didn't want to eat any of it. UGH. He eats breakfast and lunch fine but lately dinner is up for grabs.
Sampling a pilgrim hat cookie.
Here are our cookies, if you can see them!
We had dinner together and put Ethan to bed. Both Sat and Sun nights, he cried and cried when it was time to go to bed. Maybe it was because he wanted to stay up with Kimmy? Monday night, he went to bed without a peep.
