My new uber stroller, te he he...it's green
Mia's station at the house
Silly Pencil Nose
Mia spent half of the week playing with other kids in the ward while I painted my arm off. By Thursday she was so crabby from late nights and separation anxiety we took a day to just hang out. She went with us to the house on Tuesday and Thursday nights. I was afraid she'd get into the paint and make a huge mess. Instead she bopped around watching her movie (Lady and the Tramp), ate her snacks, jumped on her new mattress, and played with her pater-piller bike. At one point she did through a fit wanting to help. I gave her the choice of watching her movie or going to Alison's house. She watched her movie likety-split.
Thursday it snowed here in Sidney. We made one fast trip to Walmart for pie dough, then spent the rest of the day deep cleaning our temporary home. The cub scouts are having a pie drive so I volunteered to make two peach pies and buy two pies. I used my newly canned peaches for the filling. It was super yum...not too sweet. For dinner we had a piping hot chicken pot pie. Miekka, Seth, Jacob, and Lia are not coming now until Monday. The weather station issued a winter storm watch forecasting 3-8 inches of snow between here and west of Cheyenne. I am a bit bummed because they can't stay as long but still glad they are coming. Now the house will be done!
The last piece of news that I am very proud of is at my 6 week post partum checkup I learned that I am below my pre-pregnancy weight. Hooray! All that working out paid off this time. I still want to lose 5-10 pounds that I never lost after Amelia but all in all am doing MUCH better than I thought. Give me a pat on the back....
