The highs of my week were seeing Norah smile a “real” smile for the first time. Also, Isla has been taking herself potty which is a wonderful thing, especially when I’m stuck under Norah nursing.
Also, Kyle catching a little baby crow was pretty hilarious. It couldn’t fly yet and was stuck on the lawn at his mom’s place, so he scooped it up to show Isla. Its parents were not too impressed by our antics, so he put it back where he found it.
The low of my week was finding out that Costco’s online photo centre had been hacked and that they had suspended access for the time being. I have a bunch of photos I want to upload, so it’s super frustrating!
An internet find I loved was this post by Danielle at Sometimes Sweet. In it she talks about the decision of whether or not to have more kids, and it hits the nail on the head for how tough of a decision is really is.
The best money I spent was on some new songs on iTunes. The music in my car has been pretty stale, so it was time to refresh things a bit.
My favourite Isla and/or Norah moment was Isla’s love for “exercising.” Kyle showed her how to walk on the treadmill and lift weights, and now she loves to go downstairs with him and “exercise.” Perhaps I have a future marathon runner on my hands? Either way, it’s a great way for her to burn off some crazy, toddler energy!
The song that has been stuck in my head is the one that’s in the new Apple commercial. I didn’t even know what it was called or who sung it but it’s bloody catchy and stuck in my head. I eventually figured it out (“Freedom” by Pharell Williams) and went and bought it on iTunes. Very clever, Apple. You win, Apple. You win.
My favourite meal of the week was probably the beef stroganoff I made yesterday. Funny story: I was going to make it at home but Kyle ended up working overtime and it was going to be WAY too much food for just Isla and I. It was too late to switch plans because I already had most of the ingredients prepped and chopped. I was talking to my mom on the phone and she suggested that I just bring all the ingredients down to her place and cook dinner there. Done! I made dinner at my mom’s and it was great!
My plans for the weekend an appointment at the bank later this afternoon, nothing planned for Saturday, and I think Isla will be running the last 100m of the Kamloops Marathon with Kyle’s step-dad on Sunday. Fun!
