Tonight before the kids went to bed I nursed Lily for the last time. I had slowly been weaning her while on vacation and since getting home I only nursed at night before bed. I am happy and sad, I love nursing and snuggling with her especially because she is not a snuggly baby. But I am happy because it has been over 3 1/2 years of me being either pregnant or nursing. It is an quite exhilarating feeling! Now I can stay out late, and take cold medicine!!! I am looking forward to a break for a while until the next baby comes along :)
Also, tonight I went shopping for groceries and I found some Sweets Orange Sticks and Raspberry Sticks. They are hardly ever sold in stores here so I bought a few boxes to put in the freezer. I was eating some on the way home from the store and realized the last time I bought these, I called my dad to tell him how excited I was about finding Orange Sticks and he told me my grandpa was in the hospital and going to pass away. It was crazy because I literally called him 2 seconds after he hung up with my grandma.
Ok and here is a picture, because well posts are better with pictures :)
During the summer/fall and even in the winter we get lots of little ladies in our house. I am not sure how the sneak in but we find them most often crawling around on the sliding glass door. Mason thought it was really fun. Lily tried to eat it when I put it on her hand (above) luckily it flew away in time!
Oh and can I tell you how hard it is to get a picture of a moving lady bug on a moving 2 year old and the slowest macro lens on the planet... I think I took over a hundred pictures and these are the most decent ones I got :)
I am a "blonde" wife to a red headed hubby, and mommy to two red headed children and one blonde curly hair cherub. We have a white fluffy dog named Ralph. Writing isn't my forte, so I take pictures instead!
