probably getting more germs at the Doctor's office
The kids have also had runny noses for a few weeks now, and Noelle alternates between demanding help ("Wipe my nose!") and using a napkin or toilet paper to wipe her own nose. I've caught her numerous times going into the bathroom and unwrapping a long length of toilet paper ("I want a big one."), and then wadding it up into a ball, taking one swipe at her leaky nose, and throwing it into the toilet. She's definitely not saving any trees.
Yesterday while Jonah was napping, I decided it would be fun to take out my wedding dress and try it on with Noelle. She loved it, and kept exclaiming, "It's your princess dress, Mommy!" over and over again. So adorable! It made me happy to see her excitement, but it was also a tad depressing because I can no longer zip up the dress. Two children and my love for sugar has made me a little bit rounder than I was when I was 23. Makes me almost feel a little bit more motivated to cut out some of the sugar I've been inhaling. Almost.
This week we have finally been blessed with spring-like weather. Praise the Lord! We spent a little bit of time outside on Monday before the rain came the next day, and Noelle and I were finally able to break out our matching Toms that my sister Becky gave to us for Christmas. I asked Noelle if she would always match me, even when she's a teenager, and she agreed. I should probably get that in writing so she can't back out.
