Time Outs and Hair Dos

What did we do this weekend? A whole lot of nothing. Actually that's not true. Actually that's not true at all, we had a pretty busy weekend. Here is Alexa starting the weekend out in timeout. Normally we don't have to use that much, but the past week or two she has just been a crazy girl and definitely testing mom and dad. We are hoping this is a short phase and we can have our sweet little girl back. Actually she IS a very sweet girl, she is constantly kissing all of us and says the cutest things like "I so glad to see you" and "I love you so much" but she has her moments throughout the day when she just flips out. I guess we are lucky it's only for a couple minutes at a time and normally after a warning or a timeout she is over it and back to her sweet self. Anyway, short that possible? Maybe, but then we probably just move to another phase of some sort.

Matt and I also got to get out AGAIN for like the 3rd time in the past 4 weeks, we have felt so spoiled thanks to Gramma and Auntie Alaina! On Friday night we got together with our friends Brain and Sarah who just got engaged! YAY, congratulations! So we went the Shout House in Minneapolis, such a fun place to go we would totally recommend it. It's an sing along, interactive, dueling piano bar. They have a small menu but what we had was good and you don't have to actually do any interacting if you don't want to, but would be a fun place for a group to go for a birthday party or bachelorette party. Very cool, check it out if you haven't been there before.

Saturday we woke up and did the usual: breakfast, swimming lessons and a trip to the grocery store. Then much of the rest of the day was spent doing a lot of cleaning and organizing, we are doing some rearranging and the house is a mess and we wanted to get as much done before I went back to work this week. Yes, I am finally being forced back into the work world. :( Fortunately I am able to go back to my old job and even better is that I get to go back part time. It's been a tough week for me thinking about going back but it will be nice to shower and get out of the house a few days a week and I will also still get lots of time home with the kids. I keep telling myself this hoping it helps but man am I going to miss my babies on those days!
Speaking of my babies, aren't they adorable?

Braden had some REAL solid food this weekend. We tried a piece of Zwieback toast which he really liked but then he actually got a chunk off so that was the end of that and we moved on to baby fruit puffs which he is now in love with!

Braden also got his first hair do this weekend. I have been dying to get some gel in his hair and spike it up and I finally did it.....and he looked so cute. Here he is with Daddy showing his hair off, it's kind of hard to see.
It must have been a busy weekend because Alexa crawled up on Matt's lap Sunday night and cuddled and almost feel asleep which she never does anymore. Matt was in heaven! :)
