We just love sensory play where the kids can get messy outside in the lovely spring weather 🌞 .
Today we made these rainbow worms by colouring spaghetti!
🌞 cook the spaghetti until just softened (al dente) 🌞 using sandwich bags add spaghetti and a few drops of food colouring 🌞 give it a shake 🌞 then ideally add it to a bucket of sand (but we ran out so today it was dirt 😁) .
Kids loved getting the worms with their tweezers! Great #finemotordevelopment activity 👌
Two years ago tonight, I was in labor with my littlest babe, Roman. I sent my husband to bed because he was exhausted and I wanted him to be fully immersed in the moments to come. And, he preferred me to go to the hospital somewhat immediately, while I preferred to labor at home as long as possible. It worked (putting him to sleep), and I won. 😆 He slept until I finally woke him at 3am. I labored all night by myself until I couldn’t take it anymore. We waited for my Mom to get to our home so we could leave for the hospital, and when we got there, I was 8cm and quickly approaching time for baby to come. (So we thought). Roman could sense we were now at a cold uncomfortable hospital, and even though I was so far dilated, labor slowed down and I didn’t end up giving birth until the afternoon the next day. He wanted to stay in his warm, cozy spot. 😊 It was a long, long, labor. They say labor shortens with each child, but that was definitely not the case with me. Was it worth every contraction and excruciating pain? Yes. I’d do it ten more times, if there was a car that fit that many kids and enough money in the bank to afford a house that fits that many kids.🤣 How have these last two years gone by SO fast? I truly feel like his first birthday party was 6 months ago. It’s just crazy!
He’s a tiny little guy. Just 25 pounds! But with a big big heart and wild side. A true boy who loves to wrestle, catch bugs, play in dirt, and be naked. All the time.🤷🏻♀️😁 I was emotional putting him to sleep tonight... my last time putting a one year old to sleep. 💙 Tomorrow, we celebrate with our family this next milestone-
Baby Roman’s turning TWO!! 😭♥️🎉
Liam loves to be sung to. I can occasionally still rock him to sleep by singing to him. But ever since he was about 2 years old, a certain worship song and also a very special song (one that's from me for him) would bring him to tears when I'd sing to him. Big crocodile tears with the jutted out lip and everything. He would always end up speechless and just hugging me as tightly as possible, unable to get any words out, but trying to show his love for me. It was always very special and it's always been some of my very treasured memories with him. I was singing to him tonight, and he again, started to lose it, so now that's he's older I finally asked him why? And he simply said, "I just love you so much and I'll miss you." 😢 (Im not going anywhere) I asked him if the songs make him feel things (emotions) he can't explain and he said yes. 💙 This just proves how moving and powerful music can be, for all ages.
My son is loud, obnoxious, rowdy, occasionally gross, tough, and just all around "boy"... but man, does he also have such a sweet, momma lovin', sensitive side. I love this child more than words. I hate to see him cry, but I love that he shares his emotions with me. #specialmoments#stillmybaby#foreverandalways#iloveyou#mamasboy#boymama
Happy Birthday mom! I hope that you have felt very special today and know that you are so loved. I am so thankful for you, and love all of the fun times we have shared together. #ilovemom#specialmoments#happyday💕
When you're completely passed out, and the DJ plays your favourite song... Being able to make Kenzie smile, even when she was asleep was one of the things that gave me the most joy through the toughest time in my life.
Now, I look back at it as a fond memory that never fails to make me smile.
