The other day I took advantage of Amelia's nap time and, with Will playing quietly (too quietly) near by, I got some unpacking done. Then suddenly I heard a little voice say, "I'm ready!"
I looked up to see Will in the doorway. Standing there naked except for his shirt hanging around his head.
Me: Uh... I'm afraid to ask, but what exactly are you ready for?
Will: I'm ready for bed!
If only that were true. I so miss nap time.
When the baby's awake it's impossible to get anything done. Whenever I try, I feel a little tug on my yoga pants (you know, 'cause I do a lot of yoga), and look down to see this...
My first project, other than unpacking, has been Will's room. A firetruck makeover is in full swing.
His firetruck bedding arrived a few days ago. "It looks wonderful!" he exclaimed.
A conversation Will and I had yesterday--
Will: Sometimes I don't like my bed.
Me: Why not?
Will: Because I don't like firetrucks.
Well, that's good to know.
Will was very excited to show his sister his new bed when she woke up from her nap.
In other news, we have a Wegman's five minutes away. They have the most amazing $3 slices of cake that Will and I just adore. Last week he got a Spiderman cake. Unfortunately for him, there was only one lonely slice in the case last weekend.
Finn from Glee.
I laughed forever about it. But Will didn't care. Cake is cake.
I guess the Super Bowl was last Sunday...? Yeah, I had a care factor of zero on account of the Patriots coming thisclose to being in it. Mike insisted on Super Bowl -type foods, but I had to clarify several times that we were not actually celebrating the game.
Will likes to set the table.
I made the most AMAZING pulled pork. Oh my goodness. It's actually my mom's recipe and it's so easy, even I can do it. Rub down the meat (use a pork rub or whatever spices you have laying around), sear it (on the stove top or outside grill), put it in a crockpot with a bottle of Italian dressing, and cook (9ish hours on high, 13ish hours on low). Sooooooooooo delish.
Although, I think Will's favorite part was Mike's cheese dip.
On the subject of eating, Amelia is a huge fan. Huge.
Such messy eaters. Good thing they like their baths.
