a peek into my week

Hi!

My “weekly wears” is changing into “a peek into my week” since I am struggling to find time to actually post what I’m wearing!  I promise I will get better 🙂  In the meantime, take a peek!

 

[The best thing as a mom to get while you’re at work is a pic of your girls acting like besties…]

[We celebrated Easter a week early at my sister’s house since my mom and younger sister were going to be out of town.  It was so fun to break up the celebration.]

[Also, how adult does Bea look in this pic?!?!? Find her jammies HERE]

[The girls absolutely LOVE taking walks down to the end of the street and then climb on these giant rocks that are along our neighbors yard.  When Bea gets up on one she always asks to have her picture taken.  The besssssst]

[One of my oldest and best friends sent the below picture to me from when she came and visited us in the hospital .  Timehop makes me so emotional!  And it’s funny how you look past certain things – in the moment, I NEVER thought she looked that yellow.  It’s only until I look back at pictures am I just so blown away.]

[Saturday mornings are one of my favorite times of the week.  We take Bea to her FAVORITE activity – ballet & tap at The Dance Coalition.  The instructor is super sweet and nice with the girls and it’s just so fun watching them run around and try to follow directions!  I highly recommend checking their studio out – you won’t be disappointed!]

[Over Easter weekend we had a great time visiting with family & friends.  I LOVED getting the girl’s dressed up in their Easter dresses (yes, I bought 2 sets by accident – forgot I bought one set and totally forgot because they hadn’t been delivered yet.  Not happy about it BUT they did look cute].

[The Easter bunny worked hard on the baskets this yet and I have to say – thanks to Target – they were a hit. Some of the stuff in the basket is from Gap, Castle House, etc but Target had the CUTEST stuffed animal bunnies, bunny ears, craft kits, etc.]

[On Sunday we headed to Easter mass and Hyde Park Country Club for brunch and Easter festivities.  It was so great to be together as an immediate family and also with my older sister’s boys and husband.  I had a moment after all of the chaos where I was just sitting missing my Dad and wishing he were here to see the kids enjoying these holidays.  This time in our lives in what he was living for – to spend time with these kids and to experience holidays through their eyes.  And I couldn’t help but to think about how much the girl’s are missing out by not having their Pappy.  He would have been their best buddy and the person they were most excited to see.

So, Easter was another hard holiday – BUT it also forced me to reflect on how grateful I am to have these two babies (all I can hear is Bea saying “MOM!  I not a baby – I a big girl”).

When I was getting her dressed I couldn’t stop thinking about how we wouldn’t have had moments or holidays like this if it weren’t for the incredible care she received at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.  Because of her care team, she survived having a disease that was quickly killing her.  They acted fast, went out on a limb to do living donation, and saved us all from a lifetime of heartache.  I always say that when they saved her they saved me and they saved Jordan.  I sometimes think what could have been if she didn’t make it and although I get those thoughts quickly out of my mind, they make me ever so grateful that we do have her.

And Miss Poppy – so much different than Bea….spicy…and that’s why I love her.  She is strong willed and is kind of naughty – and I love it.  She has my heart and she loves her mommy 🙂

We are so blessed and this Easter, we were counting our blessings.  I hope you all did too 🙂 ]
