Sorry for the silence, but things have been a little hectic in Cakerwakerville. My Izzy Whizzy Woo has learned how to get into a sitting position from his stomach. Normally this would be a wonderful new milestone, but this milestone has enabled my little guy to pull himself up in his crib. And the child cannot get down from a standing position. Izzy has decided that 4 am is the perfect time to practice this new skill. I spend half my nights laying him down and the other half listening to him scream. Ugh. So, I've been a little tired. Actually, that is an extreme understatement. I have been completely and utterly exhausted.
I took the kids apple picking yesterday. It was very cute watching Porgie pluck apples off of trees. However, I was a little shocked at the outrageous prices at the farm. It was $3.95 per person for the hayride (Izzy was free) and $5.90 to feed the farm animals/play on the jungle gyms. YIKES! So basically, I spent nearly $14 before I even made it to the damn orchards. And the worst part is, I now have a ton of apples in my kitchen, which means my husband is expecting me to bake something yummy. This whole "going to the farm" trip has turned out to be a lot of money and work.
Today we stayed home. I hate staying home all day, but my house was filthy. Seriously, it was getting to the point where I felt ashamed of myself for living in squalor. So, I did some major cleaning this morning. I even scrubbed some of my greasy fingerprint covered walls. I love the look of flat paint, but my kids have wrecked havoc on my walls.
Yes, this post was fairly boring. I am sorry. To make up for my blandness, here are some pictures for little old you...
