Apparently my whole not-going-to-stress-about-the-holidays also meant not-going-update-the-blog-much.
Here's the skinny about what's happening around our parts:
Maddie is full on walking. Just walking her happy booty around. Also? She has kind of a wild look in her eyes accompanied by lots of screeching and screaming. Oh and one night she bit us all. Chased us all down to bite us and even turned her four chompers on the bedside table.
Have I mentioned I think she is going to be my wild child?
I spent two hours wrapping presents while also debating if we got the girls enough for Christmas. We curbed our gift buying this year mainly because the girls don't need a bunch of toys. They have enough and I don't want our house filled with more stuff.
We did get them a shared gift of big sister/little sister Cabbage Patch dolls. Peanut saw the dolls in the store (after I had already ordered them) and she declared that they "freaked her out." Gizmo might get an extra doll for Christmas.
P.S. Wrapping presents is a pain but not as much when you aren't 9 months pregnant. I do not miss that.
Speaking of being 9 months pregnant, I finally figured out what we are doing for Gizmo's birthday (which we won't celebrate with the official party until mid-January). Ladybugs will be the theme, which should make Hillary happy given her love of ladybugs.
I got Gizmo, Peanut and their cousin black t-shirts that I am going to adorn with sequined ladybugs. Gizmo's outfit will be topped with a black and red tutu and hopefully black and red striped tights. So. Excited.
I am 99 books into my 100 books in a year challenge. I have started and quit 5 books in the past two weeks. I'm so close and yet can't find anything I want to read.
I think my goal next year won't be quite as ambitious. Maybe one book a week instead since I hope to get my etsy shop up and running.
I don't think I ever told you I figured out a name for it: Forever Hearts, which is a play on my maiden name.
What's happening with you?
