Ugh…I had a really hard time pushing myself to write this post this week. Benjamin has been teething like crazy. He is super cranky, crying a lot and NOT napping. The no-napping has been the hardest to deal with, being an introverted parent who relies on nap time to recharge for the rest of the day. All week I was like a cell phone with one bar left while the last bit of juice slowly seeped out of me. This week made it really hard to pick up the camera. The boys are central in my photographs because there was no time for much else except sleep.
Last Saturday we were trapped inside due to monsoon like weather. We went to my sister’s house for dinner to escape the house and so our husbands could watch the UW game together. And so our kids could entertain each other. Gilbert is smiling at his sweet cousin Perla.
Sunday was another rainy day so that afternoon we headed to the Children’s Museum. The picture is just a reflection of my feet, but is very symbolic of my week since I was on my feet all week long.
Bath time is the calmest time of day amidst the teething chaos. And it’s always better with Big Bird, Elmo and Pooh.
Another rainy day we were trapped inside with nowhere to go, I had a flat tire and Benjamin only napped for an hour. We made cookies to pass the time. One of Benjamin’s new words this week was “bake.”
Today we went to the pumpkin patch (more on that in another post). Here is was quick snapshot. The cranky teether wanted to be held. Photos were limited.
I’m hoping those teeth cut through soon, for Benjamin’s sake and my sanity. We’ll see what comes of next week.
