Week 15 – 52 Collages 2014

What an exciting week! It was spring break for Liam so he had the week off, and Grandma Boo came to visit, plus we had cousin Jackson’s birthday party, so it was a week full of family togetherness and fun.

Week 14 – 52 Collages 2014

This week it was warm enough on several days to actually get outside and go on a few walks in the sunshine! Grandma was on spring break, so she came up and Lila and I went with her on Lila’s first girl shopping day together, and it was a lot of fun. It was “U” and “V” week at Liam’s preschool, and they had fun sharing umbrellas in the classroom… Liam took in his Canadian flag umbrella. (Isn’t it bad luck to open umbrellas indoors? Anyway.)  We experienced sunshine and then a few days of rain, and when the rain cleared we found that our tulips had begun to sprout. It’s about time spring got …

Week 13 – 52 Collages 2014

Not only was it frozen outside this week, (at the end of March?!) but it was also Frozen inside… Liam has caught the Disney Frozen bug. We’re slightly obsessed with the movie as well as the song, Let it Go. Liam likes to sing along and act out the song with the main character, Elsa. We’ve probably watched the movie 20 times already! (Side note: it’s on right now as I type this.)

the best quiche recipe - thekarpiuks

The Best Quiche Recipe Ever, with a Kid Friendly Twist

I realize that claiming this is the “best quiche recipe ever” is a pretty bold move, but I really mean it. The base is perfect with cheesy, buttery, fluffy eggs and it’s totally customizable by using your favorite veggie and protein. With or without a crust, it’s just as delicious. And quite by accident I discovered a way to make it kid friendly… and suddenly quiche became a HUGE hit with our two-year-old. I’m not even kidding… Liam raved about dinner and thanked me for making it at least five times during the meal. AND he had seconds.

Week 12 – 52 Collages 2014

Spring has officially sprung, but we’re still not seeing spring-like temperatures yet. Rumor has it we’re in for another deep freeze and a little potential snow next week, so even though the calendar says it was the first day of spring, Mother Nature didn’t seem to get the memo. Either way, Liam was able to get outside with his classmates this week and race on the track, and it was St. Patrick’s Day so of course I had to dress Lila up in a cute green headband I’d made her for a photo. We started seeing some baby smiles this week and we can’t get enough of them! Speaking of not being able to get …

Week 11 – 52 Collages 2014

Just when I think it’s starting to feel like spring, it gets cold again. After a weird inch or so of snow early in the week, we got a burst of warm sunshine and spring-like weather. By the time I’m writing this weekly recap on Sunday, though, it’s already back down to 30F. Figures.

Week 10 – 52 Collages 2014

Another week of adjusting and settling in and Lila is suddenly two weeks old! The boys helped to build her a swing together. Liam received his latest order from Scholastic and is tickled by one of his newest books called Chicken Butt. (Guess what? Chicken butt!) It was silly sock day at school and Liam chose to wear some pink and black Batman leg warmers that I had made for Lila as his “socks” and was so proud of them. Lila has been enjoying tummy time, and had her first bath this week. On the weekend, we all went to the local indoor bounce place so that Liam could burn off some energy. It was …

Week 9 – 52 Collages 2014

The first full week home with Lila has gone pretty well! We’re all still adjusting, but we’re getting a bit of a routine down, which is nice. Lila had her one week check-up, and is already 2oz over her birth weight so clearly all that eating has paid off. Liam sure loves his new little sister. He likes to help her at tummy time and kisses her any chance he gets. He’s begun referring to her as “my baby,” and this week he taught her about zambonis. He’s a really proud big brother.
