Ok so this week I have decided to focus on Bella! Last week I focused on Easter and helping at the church and Bella and I were there almost EVERY day from am to late at night. She did verrrrry well being a 3 yr. old she had less temper tantrums than my mother (seriously!- she would admit it too!). So to reward her she is having a week of fun things! Yesterday I let her watch alllll the shows she wanted to watch (mainly Cailou and Kipper the dog- the kid shows on Netflix) while I cleaned the house that had been left uncleaned for a week- BAD Jessica! Today – Day 2, We started out with gluten free pancakes. She wanted smiley face ones . Then we went to the “Useum” as Bella calls it. We played for two hours! Then we went to Jo’s to get our parking validated and grabbed her a brownie and some oj- it was her pick (kind of gross combo if you ask me! . Then we hit up Target, I was thinking there would be a lot of Easter clearance where we could find some fun stuff- GONE! We walked out with two things of bubbles . BUT they did have some spring kids clothes on sale- $2 shorts- HECK YEAH! Then we went to Central Market to pick up some groceries for dinner where she helped me put mushrooms in the bag and realized she knows what a lot of fruit looks like and their names. “Mommy why do I know about so much fruit?” ” Cause it is good for you and you like to eat it.” “Oh yeah!” Enjoy the photos of the day…
P.s. good news on the business side of things… I have an assistant! YAY! She is great and sweet! She is going to be helping me with online stuff so I don’t have to be online all the time and can hang out with my “chicken nugget aka Bella”. I also tapped into my friendship circle and remembered one of them Rachel Orovio to be exact is handy with photoshop so she is editing my photos with all the style I would put into it. So I am sooooo excited! I get to get back to the stuff I love- photographing weddings, meeting brides AND hanging out with my “chicken nugget” and my HUBS!!!
Lucy is looking on waiting for her to drop something!
These were my GF pancakes. I chopped up some apples threw on some sugar, cinnamon and maple syrup- YUUUMMERS!!
Bella playing DR. to a stuffed kitty checking her “hear rate” at the Children’s Museum. We have a pass so if anyone ever wants to go let us know!
Listening very carefully to the instructions on how to make a button at the Children’s Museum. This time around she was drawn to the crafts!
The final product- these are the two buttons she made at the museum. Basically you take a coffee filter and permanent markers and put marks all over the coffee filter then you take a dropper of alchol to the coffee filter. Then you waive the coffee filter around to bleed the colors and make a cool pattern. Then they use a button machine to press the coffee filter in between the metal and the plastic protective layer. Bella LOVES to do this project! This is the second time they have done it so she has a couple of buttons now. Her other favorite is when they make fake snow- I don’t know that she realizes that it is fake Don’t worry I don’t let her eat it or anything she just protects it as though it is gold!
