Week in the Life: Sunday

Today is the last day of the Week in the Life series.  I've really enjoyed doing this and I'm looking forward to looking back at this in a few months and in another year.

This morning I woke up around 6:00 and was able to just lay in bed for a while, which was a rare treat.  Emma woke up shortly after and so I got up and brought her downstairs.  We had some cuddle time and then she sat right up and said "I'm hungry.  I want eggs."  At least she knows what she wants.  I made her eggs with yogurt and toast.  Sophia woke up at 8:00 and then Andy got up to take care of the kids while I jumped in the shower.  I got ready and then got Emma dressed and ready because she and I had a movie date to see Winnie the Pooh.  I was so excited to take her to her first movie.  The movie started at 9:50, so we headed out pretty early this morning.  We got our tickets and then I got Emma popcorn and water to snack on.  Since this was her first time in a movie theater, she was amazed at all the people and the lights.  Once we got into the theater, we sat down and she immediately dove into the popcorn.  The movie was so cute and she sat and watched the entire time.  I see lots of movies in our future.
Eating popcorn at her first movie!

We had planned to go to lunch after the movie, but Emma ended up eating the entire bag of popcorn, so we skipped lunch and headed to the grocery store to do our shopping for the week.  Once we got home, we unloaded the car and had lunch.  Emma was pretty tired, so by 1:30, she was ready for a nap.  She fell asleep pretty quickly and then I laid down on the couch and ended up taking a nap myself.  It was SO nice to relax and sleep.  It had been far too long. Emma woke up around 4:00 and I woke up to get her up and bring her downstairs.  Andy and Sophia were hanging out in our bedroom, waiting for us to wake up.  I started dinner and Andy folded laundry.  Dinner took a while to make because Emma wanted me to play with her, so I took lots of breaks.  After I ate, I fed Sophia her cereal and then we got the kitchen cleaned up.  After dinner, Andy mowed the lawn and I played with the girls.  Sophia got hungry and wanted a bottle, but fell asleep while she was eating.  She hadn't napped well earlier in the afternoon, but I didn't want her to sleep and mess up her bedtime schedule. She wasn't happy when I woke her up, but Emma distracted her enough so she wouldn't think about it.  Once Andy came inside, we all played until it was time to get the kids ready for bed.
Tonight's dinner: Ranch chicken tenders, pasta salad, and corn on the cob.

Watching the Women's World Cup with Daddy.
 After they were washed up and in their pajamas, I wanted Andy to fix Sophia's video monitor.  She refuses to turn her head when she's sleeping and I hate it.  It makes me so nervous.  No matter how many times we turn her head or flip her back over, she goes right back to her tummy with her face planted into the mattress.  I wanted to see if the camera could be moved closer so I could keep a closer eye on her but it seems like it's in the best place it can be.  Rats.
Can you tell that Sophia is teething?

We put the girls down at 8:30 and they both fell asleep pretty quickly.  20 minutes later, Emma woke up crying.  I thought she had had a bad dream or was scared or hurt.  Nope.  She couldn't cover up her Ernie doll and she was frustrated.  I covered him back up and she fell back to sleep.  Crisis averted.  Now Andy and I are relaxing on the couch and ready to go to bed soon.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

The Emma and Ernie story is a nightly thing at the Hudson house. We have to put three baby blankets in the bed with Ella so all of her babies have a blanket. And they have to be covered up just so or else we are not a happy camper :) They are so funny!
