Yet all of a sudden, Waverly has started throwing out mama on the regular. She repeats my name at night from her crib, my babysitter says she asks for mama everyday lately, & the best feeling ever (is that wrong?!), the last week there are definite tears if I leave the room.
I’m sure I’ll be eating my words on this one soon, but I am really loving this new phase.
My mini & I both love any reason to celebrate so we were super excited for a 2-year old little lady’s birthday party over the weekend. My husband got a pass on this one, he really can hang with the best of them but understandably, doesn’t get as excited about these things that we do.
So it was an all-girl affair. 🙂
The party was at a local kids gym complete with bubbles, lots of toys & room to wander so obviously, Waverly was in her element & we had a great time. At one point in my life celebrations came with cocktails instead of cake pops, but honestly, these are way better & best of all, don’t come paired with a hangover the next day. It was a definite success.
In other girl news, I am thankful to be a working mom who still gets to fit in lots of quality time with my little during the week. Most days I am able to reunite with Waverly by 3pm, which gives us three entire hours together before Joe gets home for dinner. You better believe I make every attempt to take advantage of these moments every day, we usually stay busy with lots of toy-playing, dancing, baking, & walks to our favorite park.
I’ve mentioned Waverly’s lack of interest in crafts before. In most other ways she is a typical girl so I really do forgive her for this, but my little lady has no interest in DIY anything. I’ve obviously tried, more than once. Yet the other day I was at Target & literally could not resist a display of bright colored fingerpaint on the end cap. It was that kind of Target tempting, you know the one when you would just feel wrong if you didn’t buy it … & then continue to think about it for days on end.
I was super excited to break it out that afternoon, it was freezing cold out & for some reason, I had really convinced myself that Waverly was going to be into our day’s indoor activity. She even sat perfectly in her playroom chair, which then sealed the deal for me that our mom & daughter crafting adventures had officially begun.
