I Love Thursday #169 Return Blessings
This is the 169th post of things we love for the week. We are returning back to posting along with LeeAnna from Not Afraid of Color and several additional friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out. You will surely find something to inspire you. Our last Love Thursday post was February 4th! So many positives I missed sharing but at least I’ve regained my senses.
Gosh, there are so many things I’m thankful about but the first thing that comes to mind is the vaccine. I am fully vaccinated and yesterday marked the end of the two-week period post-second dose. Woohoo! I was sick as a dog after the second dose but that only lasted two days. It’s behind me and I am filled with gratitude that my school district was able to include me in the list of front-line workers.
Spring really IS coming! We had a record-making winter in many aspects. First, hardly any snow in December and January with mild temperatures. Never fear, though! We made up for the deficit of snow in February and set a near-record for the most snow in a single 24-hour period. Ugg. Thanks to the nice blast of warmer temperatures the 24″ snowpack has melted completely away. Even those really ugly late-winter snow piles are gone. Isn’t it nice to see a little green peeking through the brown mulch?!
Our little Addison has found herself in a new bigger bed. While she never had an interest in climbing out of her crib before they moved into a new house, that cannot be said now. After determinedly climbing out of her crib three times in one night, it was obvious that a change was needed. At the same time, our girl became a bad sleeper with bags underneath her eyes. I guess there were just too many changes at one time. Now that she is ensconced in a full-size bed it is crystal clear that she needs a new quilt. Her baby quilts, while still loved and adored by her, just don’t cut it any longer. They are woefully too small!
This sweet little ballerina is one theme we are considering. Addison has gone through an eyes-closed phase and twirling is one of her favorite past-times. She is NOT a fan of pink at all so we won’t even consider keeping the tutu, hair ribbon, laces, and ballet shoes pink.
AC/DC is my coin phrase for our littles going forward for now. Addison, Colt, Dominic, and Chase have to share the limelight although Chase may warrant his own separate Love section at times. There’s just SO much busyness going on . . . let’s get to it! Dominic and Addison got to enjoy some sidewalk chalk; however, it was not up to Dominic’s standard. He doesn’t want boring, white chalk (not to worry, Auntie Rose got them some colored chalk). During her walkabout in the backyard, Addison discovered a nice, big mudhole. Dominic kept his distance . . .
Buzz Lightyear, a.k.a. Dominic, needs to beef up a bit so his jetpack will fit! He’s discovered the spinner for HiHo Cherry-O. What does one do with that?! It’s a good time and fun-filled day although Chase doesn’t quite know it. In his snazzy blue and white sleeper, Chase was listening to Addison sing “Let It Go!” from Frozen. He wanted to sing along, too, it seems. And why does Momma put that pacifier just out of his reach?! Mean. Finally, we had a small Elmo cake after Colt’s birthday so he could have some cake with his cousins. Gamma did a great job on Elmo!
