Busy Blanchards

We have had a pretty busy week here in the Blanchard house.
Saturday~ Tried to watch my friend Lori get married in Vegas. The kids and I headed to Noah's pirate party. After Adelaide starting acting a fool we headed to McDonald's for ice cream. We ran into Stephanie there, who had just left the party too.Our kiddos got to play together a little bit more and we got to talk.

Sunday~ Finally watched Lori's Vegas wedding. We headed to the zoo with Daddy :) I was reminded of how spoiled I am as a SAHM. The zoo was crowded! Growing up and going to the zoo that was expected, it was Chicago. As a SAHM, I go during the week and no one is ever there but my friends and I. Luckily we have a pass so we zoomed to the front of the crowd and right in.
Monday~ We had a fun time at the park. Christian and Olivia played next to one another so I was able to chit chat with Ashley, which I never get to do. It was so nice.

Tuesday~ Adelaide was finally able to go to the Jumping Party, she LOVES this place. I don't think teaching her stranger danger is going to be very easy. She ran up to two ladies "My name is Adelaide. Where is Joshua?" Then ran up to a couple and told them her name. Christian got to play with Olivia and Caden. Caden is about 2 weeks older then Christian, so it is really cute to watch them together.

Wednesday~ It was St. Patrick's Day and we hosted a play date. Of course the kiddos had fun, but I think a few of us moms had even more fun. Stephanie used to sell Mary Kay and had a bunch left over after she stopped so we all got to fill bags up with the stuff we wanted, YAY!!! That afternoon I watched Zach. I will gladfully watch him any day of the week. He is such a good boy and Adelaide had so much fun. He did get sad when Adelaide wouldn't kiss him (too cute).

Thursday~ Christian had a follow up appointment with the ENT. Thankfully we didn't have to wait long and his ears look great. We go back in 4 months.
Today~ NOTHING!!! Nothing planned but cleaning and playing with my kids. Ahhh!

My Little Mr

Christian is now 7 months old and adorable as ever.
Knocking on wood here. He has slept through the past 3 nights, it's only to 4 or 5 but it is WONDERFUL!
He manages to get from place to place on his belly, doing spins and backing up.
He is working on tooth #3 and #4 right now. He is the grumpiest little boy, worse then before he had tubes.

Adelaide and I made crowns for her and her princess dolls. She decided Christian needed to wear it.

Adelaide's Night Adventures

I was giving Adelaide a bath the other day and she asked for her Flounder fish. She sleeps with it at night along with her Ariel princess doll. Matt went off to her room to look for it and comes into the bathroom.
"I think Adelaide was hungry last night."
He then opens his hand up to show me a half eaten apple. Adelaide admitted to sneaking out of bed and bringing the apple to bed with her to eat.
She then puts her hand on her chin and says "Hmm... What will Adelaide eat tonight?"

Last night we put Christian to sleep. An hour later (after Christian is fully asleep)we put Adelaide to sleep in her own bed and went into our room. Shortly after this we begin to hear Adelaide on the monitor that's in Christian's room. Here is what we found:

Adelaide then tells us that she wants to sleep with Christian.

I love my daughter and how she makes me laugh.

My New Addiction

I started making my own baby food and I am addicted!!!
It is so much fun and cheaper than buying Gerber. I didn't do it with Adelaide because I thought it was going to be difficult and time consuming. WRONG! It is actually something fun for Adelaide and I to do together.
I find myself at the grocery store trying to figure what else I can puree up for Christian to eat. It will be a very sad day when I have to stop :( Until then I will puree away (I think I just like the word puree).

What's Peanut Butter without Jelly?

Last night we had a great MNO to say farewell to our beloved Julie. Or as someone used to call her jelly. She told me that and I just couldn't and still can't get it out of my head. I LOVE JELLY (actually I like peanut butter more, shhh)!
Anyways, in MNO tradition we met at Cheddars for food and drinks. Of course it was all VERY yummy. There were some controversial hats also involved in our meal.

After that we headed to Whiskey River, but they were closed. So we headed to our next usual spot, The Crying Shame where we met Chase (?). Gotta love drunks! He hit on Ashley S, to which he had no skills. When we finally got him to leave her alone he moved onto Ashley D. He was nice enough to inform us that she has large breasts. WHAT??? This was news to us all. We also had some crazy "Thriller" dancing and a whole lot of chit chatting.

We then made our way to PJ's because Julie wanted some good old Waco karaoke before she left. Allison was serenaded and Julie and I took the stage to sing "Any Man Of Mine."
The night was not over yet, but at this time it was over for me. All I know is they went back to the Shame and had more craziness and something about tequila.
