This picture sums up my week best. It feels like my whole week has been spent just trying my hardest to keep these kids from spiting their heads open. Running on the couch and taking occasional head dives to the hardwood floor and counting on me to catch them is a favorite.
This was my poor attempt at catching the solar eclipse. Unfortunately, I did not have the forethought to make sure we have the proper viewing tools because this was the day of my best friend's baby shower. All of the photos from the shower were taken with a real camera.
This was a really exciting part of our week for me. Since learning that Makayla has ocular albinism, I now know so much more about the way she sees, and it's a lot more than, "her eyes shake." Light plays such a significant role in her outdoor experiences. For over a month now, I have been on the hunt for a the perfect pair of sunglasses, that she will keep on her head. That's when I discovered BabyBanz. Not only to they wrap around her head, but they provide 100% UV protection and are endorses by the National Organization of Albinism and Hypopigmentation (NOAH). Thanks to a partner ship between BabyBanz and NOAH, I was sent a free pair for these wonderful sunglasses for Makayla! These glasses are truly great! I will be ordering a pair for Austin next!
We have been enjoying our backyard so much this summer. I love that we can sit outside and the kids never seem to get bored. They play with the dog, which makes his so happy. We are outside, so they aren't breaking anything, which makes mommy SO happy! This was a stick salad that Austin made Scout, and being the best big brother, he happily ate it while Austin watched and giggled.
Silly dog. Nothing more to say really...
Last night was a rough night. The kids had a terrible time going down, and by the end (or what I thought was the end) I was so stressed out that all I could think about was washing away all that stress with a pint of ice cream. (Yes, I'm learning I am an emotional eater!) So, in keeping up with my Weight Watchers (By the way, I lost 6 pounds this week!) I steamed a pound of asparagus and proceeded to pig out!
