First week alone and Memorial Day weekend!

Right after my mom and sister left Matt was suddenly staffed on a new project, so I was alone last week with 2 kids. Oh my goodness! The first day wasn't pretty - in fact I don't know who cried more - me or Liza! But things have definitely gotten easier as I've figured out our "new" routine, and as I've continued to recover and feel better.

Here are a few pictures from last week, mostly taken on my phone...

Our first day alone...still in pajamas at 3 in the afternoon... 
Carrying Liza around on Day 2...much easier having both hands free to help with Will!
Sweet baby girl!
My goofball!
Sleeping in her bassinet that was Matt's as a baby
She looks so grown up to me here!
Sporting her new bow from Aunt Karen!
Will is such a sweet big brother!
Hotdog time!
Mommy was playing dress up with me!
Will's last day of school!
Eating lunch with my buddy!
Getting a sponge bath from daddy and big brother!
All snuggled up in her bunny towel!
I'm clean!
Ready for bed!
We had a nice relaxed Memorial Day. For lunch Matt grilled steaks and made a steak salad with arugula, strawberries, goat cheese, and homemade vinaigrette and for dessert he grilled peaches and topped them goat cheese and honey! Yum!!

Making popsicles!

For dinner we took a picnic of boiled shrimp, marinated asparagus, and fruit to a park by the lake. It was so nice out and Will had a great time too!
