here's what monday looked like:
cardi: Old Navy
wedges: Old Navy
i'm not gonna lie- i have no idea if these items of clothing are still "fashionable"- they were purchased many moons ago.
but i'm going to go with "possibly" because no one did any horrified double takes when i made a quick stop at Target for diapers & breastmilk bags...
my life? G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S! Fergie knows what i'm talking about.
and see? i even combed my hair. rather, i ran a curling iron through it. actually- sort of pointless since it was misting out & my hair bends over for wet weather. but it's the thought that counts.
and my skin's the greenish pallor? simply the elevator's porno lighting. nothing to be concerned about.
unless you're concern lies in the fact that my office building has porno lighting- and then your concern is justified.

the holy grail. (yes, those are ginger ale cans holding up her blanket. don't judge me.)
elation over the prospect of a pure sugar coma.
brynn only gets excited over milk- not easter baskets.
after ingesting a plastic egg full of jelly beans- we headed outside (as though the fresh air would some how make up for the fact that we allowed our child to eat candy for breakfast)
the husband, alex & the chickens went scratching around & discovered some new spring insects:

alex & brynn:
dress/romper: Tea Collection
socks: Old Navy
shoes: See Kai Run
cardi: Old Navy
wedges: kelly & katie via Off Broadway Shoes
ta da! poised & put together- if only for about 5 minutes.
but 5 minutes was enough- i even managed to squeeze in some mommy & daddy shots:
(in case you're wondering- they have his eyes)
and everything else is courtesy of yours truly. obviously.
but wait- do i dare??? yes- i dare take even more pictures to include the grandparents (my in-laws)
and then we added the girl's cousin Jameson:
who has perfected the pout face...
...and promtly pwnd grandma.
and then we brought it together for 3 generations.
and i swear brynn wasn't rockin' a frown all day:
she mixed it up with a look of "um...what?"
and since i thought it'd be vain of me to ask someone to take a picture of ME ALONE (whaaa?!)- i was forced to take my own later that evening in our badly lit bedroom:
look- POCKETS! a dress with pockets = i will probably buy it.
as i stated- i don't dress up often- but i thought i did A-Ok this time around.
i do have some pictures of alex & her easter basket excitement- but i'll save those for later.

we'll end our week with some tiptoeing- because alex is currently obsessed with it.
she does this everywhere. so when she asks to get down & walk i actually cringe. not because she looks weird or anything (even though she does) but because i know it's going to take her twice as long to get from point A to point B.
the first time the husband saw her doing it he watched her for like 5 minutes & then asked me what the hell was wrong with her.
i answered, "she's tiptoeing- duh."
to which he replied, "who the hell does that- duh."
and i ended with, "your mom- duh. FACE!"
we're very mature & respectful in this house. duh.

"posicle" (that's how she says it) & "PET GARY!" (that's how she yells it)
she's started noticing her shadow- so she's turn around & around trying to look at it. then she'll stop. and move. and laugh. and say "HI! ME! YOU!"
while alex is outside the door to the chicken coop is NOT ALLOWED to be open. she goes over & slams it shut. and then says. "THERE! Shut." and wipes her hands. it's hysterical.
she loves to chase after the chickens, all the while screaming- "HUG! CHICKEN! ILAUUU! KISS!"
the chickens are having none of it.
"why? mommy- why dat? NO! POSICLE?!"
i'll wrap up the week with part V tomorrow- tip-toeing!
