Each Thursday we link up with Rebecca at A Beautiful Ruckus and take time to reflect upon some of the smaller things that brightened our week. Depending on what time zone you are in, it may actually still be Thursday. In my neck of the woods, I still have about 15 minutes remaining…I guess I better get things going!
1. Our study, turned playroom, is surrounded by low hanging windows, and the babies enjoy gazing outside. Last week we discovered a family of cardinals frolicking outside. They splashed in our bird bath and pursued grasshoppers on the lawn for quite a while. Living in suburbia sometimes nature seems void, but beautiful creatures do sometimes find a place in the ‘burbs too.
2. I’m really excited to have a few of my baby food recipes published at Bobee Inc. online today. The founder of Bobee Inc is a mother of two boys who invented a wall mounted baby wipes dispenser, which includes decals for personalized decor. Although her website is devoted to her product line, she maintains a blog sharing a variety of parenting articles from how to keep your home safe for babies to baby feeding tips. Don’t forget to drop by Bobee Inc. to see my applesauce baby food recipes!
3. All together the babies have about 20 pearly whites. Although I’ve been using the silicone finger tip toothbrushes on the babies since they were newborns, I decided that was no longer sufficient. This week we began a teeth brushing regimen after breakfast and dinner. I purchased a four pack of toddler toothbrushes and training toothpaste for the job. I haven’t sampled this toothpaste myself, but it must taste delicious because the babies get all jazzed up about this new routine. They begin squealing in excitement when they spy their toothbrushes and crocodile tears flow when we are finished. I hope they develop a lifetime of good dental hygiene and always love brushing their teeth so much!
4. On Sunday morning, George and I prepared a family style breakfast with buttermilk pancakes. Typically we enjoy our breakfast during the babies’ morning nap, but this time decided to eat with them at the quad table. George misjudged Mason’s reach and found a little hand nabbing bits of pancake right off the plate.
What warmed your heart this week?
