{Our Week} - 4/29/13 - 5/5/13

I feel like I should just consider Madden's update section to be called:

"What New Words Did Madden Say This Week?"

This week included: Grammie, Grampie, Jordan (a girl at day care), book, bubbles and slide.  He's getting to the point now where he can pretty much repeat words after you say it to him a couple times.

In other news, this boy is OBSESSED with playing outside.  If its nice out (heck, even when it's NOT so nice out) he wants to be on the playset out in our backyard.  He LOVES the swings and going down the slide.  I literally think he would do it non-stop all day long if we let him.  He's devastated when it's time to come inside.

Mariah loves being outside, too!  That's actually how she acquired her very first splinter earlier this week.  After many attempts of trying to remove the splinter from the foot of a squirming 3 year old we finally conquered the battle with that tiny little piece of wood.  Thankfully she's a tough girl.  I am sure there are MANY more splinters to come. (See pic of operation: remove splinter)

One other new development with Mariah is her love for chocolate milk.  If you remember, this girl had a milk allergy less than a year ago.  Thankfully the past 6 months her allergy has lessened and she can tolerate milk and milk products just fine.  We had hope that she would outgrow it, but thought we'd NEVER get her to drink milk since she'd spent years telling people she was allergic.   I am shocked that now she asks for a glass of milk and likes it!  Granted its chocolate, yes, but hey if that's one way to get milk in her I'm OK with that.

Mike has taken up bike riding since his knee injury is still bothering him when he runs.  Major kudos to him for getting up at 5:30 am this morning BEFORE 7:30 am mass and getting a 12 mile ride in :)

I am loving Zumba lately.  I've been going once a week for about 4 months now.  I'm addicted!  If any one in the QC wants to join its on Thursday nights at 6:30 pm :)

In lieu of a "funny things Mariah said" section this week (mostly because I'm having a mental block - because there's not a day that goes by where she doesn't say something hilarious) I decided to post a cute video of the two of them playing with BUBBLES!!! :)

{Please look past Madden's outfit... I didn't dress him that morning... ;)


We enjoyed lots of time outdoors this weekend.  A birthday party, riding bikes, yard work and playing!  We finished off the weekend with some ice cream :)  Can't all weekends be just like this (minus the 12 loads of laundry I had to squeeze in).

It took a little while for Mariah to get up the nerve to try it out - but she had a blast once she did!

Cheesy pose on the back porch :)

Same shot - 1 second later :)

Mariah looked at this pic and said "Hey Mom!  There's a ball on Madden's head!"

My babies :)

Mariah and Daddy split this treat :)

And Madden and I were supposed to split ours, but he's kind of an ice cream hog

FACT:  Madden loves Oreos

I hope you had a great week!  Make this next one even better :)
