my dad is in town for a work thing so he flew in a few days early to spend the weekend with us! we ate a lot of pizza while he was here and laughed a lot at his stories. we have started potty training eleanor, and samson just learned how to drink from a straw so the adventures continue! i tweaked my back trying to carry our stroller up the subway stairs and it still hurts when i breath. i ordered a massive amount of buttered-popcorn-flavored jelly belly’s because they are my favorite and it’s way cheaper to buy in bulk online than at the candy store down the street. i think it freaked my husband out a little bit when he saw all the popcorn-flavored jelly belly’s. but someone in this world has to eat them!
josh and i have been discussing ways we can refocus those few precious moments we have together at the end of the day, or those few moments throughout the day that we have alone. often times we are so plugged into our phones in these moments– checking our email, instagram, twitter, and everything else that comes with phones these days. it’s a little bit strange how in this day and age we are always connected. while i am thankful for all this modern technology, sometimes i think it’s terribly frightening. it’s a small step, but we have decided to put the phones away on sundays for a while (meaning not checking in with twitter or instagram or email) and focus on our family without the distraction of our devices. we’re starting this sunday if you’d like to join us. i am looking forward to it. it’s a good step in the right direction.
oh yeah, and eleanor found her nose the other day. meaning, her finger is always in it. yay.
happy wednesday-almost-thursday! woo!
