I will start with the most important event in the last few weeks. On September 22nd, Tatiana turned 12! That's right, folks! It's her last year as a tween. This time next year when I have two teenage girls and an almost two year old, you'll be able to find me cowering under a rock.
We began our morning with brownies for breakfast...
Then went on to play Dungeon Quest, by special request of the birthday girl.
Opened a few presents...
And had lunch at the Rainforest Cafe...
Where the waitstaff sang happy birthday to her, and made her act like an elephant!
|Someone didn't want a picture taken with her mouth open. lol|
|Yes, Zachariah got some too.|
|Even with 4 out of 5 Martins tackling the Volcano we couldn't conquer it!|
While we were at the mall, someone decided she was ready to have her ears pierced. It wasn't planned, but she did great! I apologise for the blurry photos. Mom might have been a little nervous! ;)
|First time seeing her newly pierced ears!|
We wrapped it all up with a visit to Nana and Papa's house for her to open more presents.
So what else have we been up to lately besides being sick and having birthdays?
Well, we've enjoyed the cooler weather.
|See the blurry feet? He was kicking. We call that his "happy feet"!|
|First time down a slide.|
|Yay! That was fun!!!|
|We chased Zachariah most of the night.|
|It was SO cold, Tatiana used my ring sling to keep warm!|
|Mom forgot a bib.|
|Dancing on the stairs...|
|Dancing by the table...|
|Dancing on the dance floor...|
|Eric and Maritza|
|Mother and son|
|Celestia and Eric|
|I honestly can't believe he slept through the DJ playing.|
And tonight, I put an 11 month old to bed for the last time...
|Bath time first!|
|Then we read his favourite book...|
|And snuggled up to nurse.|
Tomorrow, we will celebrate a whole year with this little guy! <3
