Adventures in Mommyhood

We have been having quite the week! Here in Utah we are having a cold snap. Our daily high temperatures have been below freezing, which means it has become pretty hazy outside. Not really great for playing outside, but pretty spectacular for sunset pictures!

The haze has been hiding Mount Timpanogos and keeping us indoors. But we have still been plenty busy. Earlier this week we were excited when Jonah lost his other front tooth!

As you can see, his new teeth are both already growing in. But for now he has the cutest grin! I love it.

This week the real adventures have mostly involved Miss Aubrey. She has decided that since she is a girl like mommy, she needs to learn how to do her hair too.

Good thing I always keep my flat iron unplugged!

Then one morning this week I walked into Miss Aubrey's room to find her like this:

Yep! She was taking her pajamas completely off! What an exciting new skill! She has now done this several times. Did I mention we have been having a cold snap? Now might not be the best time to be hanging around in the house with nothing but a diaper on!

Speaking of new skills, guess who I found on the top bunk in the boys' room?

My baby girl was hollering at me because she was stuck up there. At least she didn't try to get down! I think it's funny that Aubrey can't climb out of her crib yet, but she has figured out how to climb up to the top bunk! My mom said that she will probably figure that out next, but for now I think she is too busy taking her jammies off to worry about climbing out of bed!

What a silly girl! But she sure is cute!

So we were having a fun week... right up until my dishwasher stopped working! Ugh!

The good news is that it is under warranty. The bad news is that it will probably be a week or more before it is fixed if they have to order a part! So I got to take everything out of the dishwasher and wash it by hand. I miss my dishwasher already. I guess it's time to break out the paper plates.

Tonight we are supposed to get a big snowstorm. So hopefully my next adventure will be more of the sledding variety!

  3. So fun when the kiddies learn new skills. I'm so sorry about the dishwasher! I hope it gets fixed real soon!

  4. I hope your dishwasher gets fixed soon! These photos are precious! Cute kids!

  5. Cute little girl!! Love it. Sorry about the dishwasher I would lose my mind. I use paper plates already and my dishwasher works fine. I guess I'm just lazy!!
