It’s been pretty quiet on the blog recently, but I assure you, the same can NOT be said about things around the Stange residence!
Chelsea has been a DREAM for the last week or so. Seriously. She has been so happy and compliant and just a sweet little girl! I’m really hoping that this isn’t just a phase because we have ALL loved it around here.
One of my favorite moments of Chelsea this week was when we went to the doc yesterday for Alexa’s 9-month checkup. Can you believe that she is 9 months old? I can’t. Anyway, I asked my doctor to have the nurse bring Chelsea a sucker when she came back to give Alexa a shot. After receiving her sucker and just before the nurse left, Chelsea said, “Thank you for bringing me the sucker!” Totally unprompted. Hashtag soproud.
My other favorite moment from Chelsea was this morning when she said, “Mommy, look!” then she climbed on top of the arm of the couch and belly flopped on the deceivingly soft, cushy-looking blanket strategically placed on the floor. Luckily she was uninjured, but the way she paused in silence right after the flop and before the tears, I could just hear in her mind, “I don’t understand what went wrong!”
Alexa has been… clingy. Haha! She is quite attached to her mama and has been teething. I’m pretty sure that four teeth are starting to come in on the top all at the same time. Poor baby! But she still manages to smile for me!
One of my favorite moments of Alexa this week was also today while at my piano accompanist’s home (I’m singing for a church function Friday night) practicing and Alexa joined in the singing, too!
My other favorite moment was yesterday when I decided to teach Alexa how to blow kisses. So I blew her a couple of kisses to show her how it’s done and she put her hand up and started suctioning and breaking the suction of her lips to make a *pop* sound. That little girl is so smart!
Andrew is getting really excited for the summer! We’ve got a lot of fun things planned and we are both getting super excited!
My favorite moment with Andrew this week was probably this morning when I heard him laughing with Chelsea as the two of them struggled to get out of the blanket burritos they had made for themselves.
I am getting really excited for this summer, too! I’ve been busy getting outfits together for our first exciting trip, A CRUISE! This year marks mine and Andrew’s five-year anniversary so we decided to celebrate by going on our first cruise ever! I’ve been writing a few seasoned cruisers that I know and have a rough idea of what to expect, but for the most part, I’m clueless! All I know is that it will be a wonderful reprieve for me and my hunny! I’ll for sure write a post about what I’m wearing/packing! As soon as I know. I hope I don’t over pack too much…
Other than that, we are simply soaking up this spring-time weather! Going for walks often, playing outside, riding bikes (Chelsea is TOTALLY ready for a “for-reals” one), laughing, and just enjoying our family and our life! Hopefully I’ll be able to catch up with all my projects soon and get on the ball with this blog stuff! Until then, friends, keep it real.
Oh! And PS I’ve added a new print to my Etsy shop! Take a look:
