Being a better blogger…

I fell behind in life when Lola got sick which doesn’t make a lot of sense since I was stuck at home… but anyways- now that things are back to normal, life feels more productive than ever! 

And sleeping is going good for Lola.  Clay and I are dying to move the twin mattresses in her room, but are waiting till we get our hands on a twin bed frame as well as the bed rails at BRU.  Hopefully this week will work something out.  We were going to put the mattress on the floor, but want to make a big, fun deal out of it for her and let her see it’s a real bed! But napping and bedtime is going good and still without the paci.  She has actually quit asking for it. 

Naps on the couch… she always wants her baby and Elmo.  081



Lola and I have been baking weekly and we really love it and Clay seems to benefit nicely from it!  This week we made Apricot Bars and Ooey Gooey Cookies.  I feel so good when I bake (and cook but working on doing that more) because it’s fun to share with others, it’s cheap, it’s time consuming, Lola typically likes it, and I feel productive. 

Maw-Maw had surgery Friday so we shared our goodies with her hoping it would make her feel a little better. 


The cookies were fun to make because of all the powdered sugar!


And man were they delicious!  Laura came over and loved them as well!


Last week Lola had pajama day at school.  I love when they have special days at school.  The best picture I could get while we hurried out the door!

Lola’s little ponytail- surprising long but still not quite long enough everywhere.
