Whew! It's Friday! Crazy week it has been since basketball practices has started for the boys. The days have been so full.
So I've decided to make Indigo's christening dress. Madi's gown is so beautiful but I think they should each have their own. Maybe they want to give it to their own daughters one day. Plus I love to sew and have some really cool designs stirring in my mind. I swear if you look at Christening dresses online, they all look the same. I got some Dupioni silk and I found this really cool ribbon that is actually blue! So I'm going to add a little color on the empire waist and the bonnet. It's going to be really beautiful -I just hope that the gown will actually look like the design I drew and what I'm envisioning. I hear Indy through the intercom-gotta go nurse & I promised Dan I would visit him at work this morning, so I better get in the shower. That Indy is so sweet, she doesn't even cry when she wakes from her naps - she's just in there cooing right now! Love that baby!


well i cannot believe how busy we were yesterday. At the end of the day I was like burnt crispy toast. Ezrah did amazing at the spelling bee! When he got out there were only like 5 or 6 kids left. And he got out on a bunk word too....scentless. What kind of word is that? Don't we say fragrance free? Honestly though I was absolutely gushing with pride for Ezrah yesterday. And this is why and what I learned...he was a little sad when he got out, but within a minute, he started rooting for his good friend, Thomas (who did win by the way). I realized at that moment that I couldn't be prouder! I mean I was literally crying! He made me so proud to see him cheering for his friend after he got out and after days of studying so hard. If he won the national spelling bee I couldn't imagine being prouder of my son at that moment.
so after that it was about 45m till the bell rang, so I just brought the boys home early from school. By the time we got home, it was eat, then take Jack to basketball practice. That was over after 5 and we headed home. I made tacos for dinner. Got everybody ready for bed, made lunches, cleaned the kitchen, and got in bed by 10. I was beat. It was a busy day. At it again today because Ezrah has basketball today after school.One thing I wanted to mention is some "baby-haters" I encountered when we first got to the spelling bee! Indy made a little fussy sound before it started and some old parents in front of me said "Oh no". And gave me a dirty look. The father was consoling the wife that it would be okay. What, was I supposed to not go to the school spelling bee because Ezrah has a baby sister? I don't think so! She didn't make a peep during the rest of the time, btw. It just reminded me of being on an airplane with a baby. I wanted to just rip into these people, but I am a nice person, so I didn't.  Indy's needing me now so I have to go BF her. I have to clean too and embark on another busy day!
Too tired to write. Gotta getto bed. Indigo was up quite a bit last night and cluster feeding. Ugh..walking zombie mama. Had a good time on Madi's field trip to the fire station today though


Happy Sunday! Dan's off today and we're geared up to watch some football. I'm making a spiral ham today and hope to find a good recipe for a brown sugar glaze. We're skipping church today, being it starts in 10 minutes and I'm still in my PJs. I have to do a food shopping this morning as Ezrah eats us out of house and home. I always feel bad when he says "Mom, there's no food!". Just to clarify, there is food, we're just out of snacks he can grab by himself. I'm pretty psyched as tomorrow is Ezrah's big spelling bee at his school. If he wins, he'll go to district, then state, then national! We are studying hard!
Both boys start basketball practice next week and I'm kind of dreading all the driving around with the girls. But I'm glad they are keeping busy! Madi wants to start tap dance school and being I started when I was her age, I really want to get her into it. But boy, is dance school expensive these days! She has a pair of tap shoes she wears around the house! I'm going with her on her feild trip on Wed to the fire station! She's pretty excited. Indigo is just doing her thing. Putting stuff in her mouth and being a sweetie. Wish me luck on that spiral ham today.
