Three Years

Happy 3rd birthday to my sweet baby girl!  
You mean everything to me, my little love.  While I wonder how three years could fly by so quickly, I marvel at the fact that I've been there everyday to see you growing,
learning, loving, playing, believing, and dreaming. I can't imagine what
the years ahead have in store for you.  I'm so grateful that I get to share them
with you.
We love you always and forever, with all of our hearts.

What We've Been Up To

This feels like the NEVER-ENDING-WINTER.  It is just insufferable being stuck indoors 99% of the time.  Running errands in cold weather is something I absolutely abhor.  Seriously, people, winter is my worst enemy.

It's hard to keep yourself entertained indoors for very long.  I'm sorry to say there's been more Netflix viewing than I care to admit.  But we're coming to the end of it (please, tell me we are!).  I'm hoping to come out of this slump sooner rather than later.

So, here's a few snapshots of what we've been doing to occupy ourselves until we can venture outdoors without layers once again:
:: always a silly girl ::

:: yet another time where they're sleeping the same way. weird ::

:: making a chef's hat at the children's museum ::

:: sleeping off the side of the bed ::

:: lunch date with momma ::

:: hey, i know it's march but we like to do things on our own time frame ::

:: and of course, I've been growing a new little one ::

Harper's Snowman

I'm really impressed with Harper's first attempt at drawing!  Granted, I drew the actual snowman's body, but she drew the rest herself!  She kept asking me what to add and when I told her a specific part, she knew where to put them and even had a shape for each.
Also, yesterday she had absolutely NO accidents.  My little baby is growing ridiculously fast!

Washington, D.C.

So this post is belated, but better late than never, right?

Somehow I was able to take a (much needed) momma-only trip a few weeks ago.  I was lucky enough to visit my BFF of 25 years AND do a bunch of tourist-y things in D.C.

:: Bilbo Baggins restaurant, which happened to serve a delicious Bilbo Baggins beer ::

:: Since I always seem to pack inappropriate footwear when I travel, I had to buy some new shoes.  My new Toms ::

:: Hello, Mr. Lincoln ::

:: Absolutely DELICIOUS cupcakes.  However, when I opened up my $15 half dozen box that I was taking home, my cupcakes were wreaked.  See below ::

being sick has advantages of mismatch jammies and eating only the marshmallows from cereal (once again)

Harper and I are sick with the nasty flu.  It's painful and draining.  I am doing what I can to feel better before I leave for DC tomorrow(!!).  I need us both better by then!  I had to take a sick day yesterday and we literally stayed in bed all day.  I watched half of the first season of The Good Wife(!) while Harper watched Curious George.  We did quite a bit of sleeping and ingesting of medicine (which I hate more than anything.  Ask Wade.  It takes a lot for me to take medicine when I'm sick unless I absolutely need it).  I made it to work today so that is promising.  My brain is still a bit foggy so nothing clever for this post, I'm sorry to disappoint.  But I will leave you with this little gem:
ugly socks, ugly pants, ugly mismatched sheets (i suck at laundry).  but they are all ridiculously comfy. BTW that's Arthur playing on the outdated TV that I lost the remote to and can't turn off the closed-captioning
