Life with Bennett {week 24}

Greetings from our germ-infested home! Oh yes.
It was only a matter of time until someone caught one of the many gross things going around...and yesterday Lucas was that someone. Bless his heart. He's feeling much better, so I am just praying that no one else gets sick!!
But here's a look at our week, before he got sick!


We continued the early birthday celebrations for Ella! My parents were in town again, so they gave Ella her presents!

She was so excited about her pink violin! Now she can play like Peppa Pig!

We also made a last minute trip to Target to get birthday party supplies, and somehow ended up in the toy section...

After naps, my mom wanted to take Ella shopping! We didn't find anything (shocking, I know!), but we did have a small photo shoot by the fountain!


Saturday was Ella's birthday party!! I will do a whole separate post on this! :)


Ella's actual birthday!!! Finally, ha! She is officially 5!

We got her a Sleeping Beauty dress! She's obsessed with Sleeping Beauty and this was one of the only princess dresses she didn't have and wanted!

She came downstairs to her birthday waffle!

Then we took a few pictures with her blocks! She has had these blocks since she was doing these weekly photos as a baby!

I asked her what she wanted to do on her birthday...and do you know what she said? 
"Go grocery shopping with my princess dress on."

Ok. Easy to please!

She also wanted to take a nap wearing her cool mask from her party...

...and when she woke up, we found a Peppa Pig birthday card in our mailbox from Grandma and Papa!!! (Yes, I know the mail doesn't come on Sunday...we hadn't checked it yet from Saturday, whoops!)

Ella's second request of the day was to ride her scooter outside. Done and done. 

The boys came out with us too! They wanted to golf.

I’d also be remiss to not mention it was also Super Bowl Sunday!! And Bennett’s first Super Bowl! Crazy to think that the next time football is on tv again, he will be ONE!! 


This chick's first day being 5 at preschool!

The boys and I went to the library for the first story time we've attended in what seemed like FOREVER!

The theme was trucks, which couldn't have been more perfect for this truck-obsessed boy.

He was so engaged the whole story time!!!

Monday was also my brother's first day of a new job, so we wore our best space/rocket ship/astronaut outfits to support! (He is--literally--a rocket scientist! He designs spaceships...or the engines for them...or something like that!)


This girl said "Mom, take a picture of me being like a Lilly Pulitzer model." I mean, LOL. She is too much sometimes!

The boys and I went to Target and Michaels to return all of the stuff I had bought for Ella's party that we didn't end up using! (Over buy?! ME?! Never! Ha!)

When Ella got home from preschool, she opened her presents from Grandma and Papa!!! 

She was especially excited about that Pop the Pig game!!!

After naps, we went to the heart wall (if you're in Charlotte, it's in South End by Jeni's)!

I'm already wanting to go back because I'm not happy with how the pictures turned out...Bennett is eating his hands in every single one he's in. 

We were going to go back today, but #sickLucas. Maybe we'll make it back before Valentine's Day! 


We went to Black Lion to get some more local honey!!

Lucas posed with the lion outside the store...this picture just cracks me up!

And Bennett wore the same little Baby Gap onesie that I've held onto since Ella was his age! Gotta love gender neutral clothes!!!


Yesterday was a doozy. The boys and I went to Bible study in the morning. Lucas was totally fine, acting normal. We came home and I fed him lunch. He started crying and refused to eat, which is SO not like him. I took his temperature just to rule out the flu, and what do ya know, 100.8! Oh man, I started freaking out and texted the whole Bible study group...I will feel TERRIBLE if any of their kids get sick from him! 

Anyway, to add to my stress, I had promised Ella we would get TCBY after school that day. Her preschool was doing a fundraiser there where proceeds from sales would go towards their new playground...but you had to buy the fro-yo on Thursday afternoon. Of course. So I buckled Lucas into the stroller...and we bolted in and out of that place so quick, I hope his germs had no time to land on anything! 

It was so nice out, we ate on our front steps! Look at poor Lucas, bless his heart! 

After long naps, it was nearly 80* out, so we played outside that afternoon!

I also ordered popsicles (and juice boxes, and Pedialyte) on Amazon Prime Now. Thank goodness for this service! Everything got delivered as we were playing outside, so I finally got something into my sick boy's popsicles! 

He will ONLY eat the orange ones! 

Ella benefitted too...

...and poor Bennett only got to eat his hands. Popsicles next year, buddy!

So after eating about 4 (orange only!) popsicles...guess who threw up ALL over his crib as soon as I put him in it for the night?! Bless his heart. 
He miraculously slept until 9 this morning, and hasn't had a fever or thrown up since then! So, hopefully he is done being sick and no one else gets it! 

Have a happy and healthy weekend!!!
