during a more cold and windy morning over the weekend, we took off together to go find some pancakes and apple juice (per the kids request) and since i’m not one to ever turn down anything that has to do with pancakes, i was willing to head out despite the fact that it felt like winter all over again outside.
i didn’t order any since i ate an entire plate of pancakes and then the kids left over pancakes, but why do diners always have the most gorgeous looking desserts on display?! and there’s another fancy carrot cake. i swear they are trying extra hard to get my attention these days.
favorite things about 3 year olds (well, almost 3, 3 in a month!) are how they “read” everything to you.
this is a CALM moment amidst the chaos that normally follows us everywhere.
josh davis and his turkey club with french fries business. by the time we got everybody out the door and to the diner, he was excited to order this instead of breakfast. i guess when you’re up all night long working and taking care of a baby, any hour is just as good as any for lunch!
oh gosh this face is looking more and more like his brother’s and sister’s faces and not anything like a newborn anymore. our neighbor brought home a newborn from the hospital over the weekend and it made me realize just how much conrad is not a newborn anymore. he suddenly looked and felt like a giant! the cuddliest and sweetest and most slobbery giant ever, but a giant nonetheless. the newborn stage goes so fast. it really really does.
i don’t think it’s very easy to mess up an order of pancakes, but still, these were some of the best ones ever.
fully ready for the kind of weather where we can put the coats away AND NOT HAVE TO PULL THEM OUT a week later. i’ve been in such a mood lately, and while i know i can’t blame the weather completely on it (or even at all?), i kind of do think it messes with me.
