We spent a lot of time outside this weekend enjoy the gorgeous weather. Eli gets so excited when we just walk outside it's tough to keep him inside, but much easier for me..
Eli is taking 3-4 steps at a time- by himself!! Of course it usually ends with Rowan running over ( and accidently knocking Eli over) to show us he too can take 3 steps!
Mike and I went out ALONE Saturday. We had an early dinner at Radio Maria's and ate some delicious Tappa's (which seem to be smaller portions of appetizers that cost the same or more) but they were excellent so that's alright. This was only the second time we have been out -alone- since Eli was born.
We had a great Mother's Day, that included a last minute picnic with my mom, aunt, and my cousins kids- so Rowan had a blast too!
Friday our washer broke a belt. The load that was being washed had to be removed- soaking wet- so we could get the water out, which meant we had dripping wet, dirty clothes (that started to smell after being left in the bucket overnight) all over the picnic table and deck. Of course the one place that sells replacement belts around here closes at 2pm on Saturday (which we found out when we called at 1:40!) and are closed Sunday. So we have not been able to do any laundry since Friday, we almost had to buy disposable diapers (I know- -gasp..-) but my mom saved us and took a load home to wash! Thanks again Mom!!
Of course as a direct result of the washer breaking (I'm pretty sure these things wouldn't have happened if the washer worked fine
-Eli had some completely random puking incidences 9most likely from choking and gagging on foods) which resulted in more dirty laundry from his clothes, towels, and Mike's clothes- since he was puked on (am I wrong for being amused by that?). He also puked on our sheets, and my favorite bedspread.
- Eli has also had a couple of the largest most explosive poops this weekend, resulting in poopy clothes and towels (from extra baths). Don't worry I did rinse the gross stuff.
- Both boys have gotten absolutely filthy everytime they go outside, resulting in lots of dirty towels and washrags.
-I ripped a hole in my crappy-weararoundthehouse jeans, granted they already had a hole, but now they aren't wearable at all. I am pretty sure almost every towel, washrag, and piece of clothing we own is dirty, thankfully Mike got the belt and as soon as he gets home we can do laundry again!
