L Fam Weekly: May 18-23

Since the beginning of 2014 I have been trying to post at least one picture a day on Instagram. I've been using the hashtag #lfamdaily14. I thought it would be a fun way to look back at our year in glance. I also usually count on my blog as a record of our family happening. Unfortunately I haven't been blogging as much as I'd like, so I feel like a lot of my pictures are just sitting in iPhoto, never to be seen again. So, I'm going to something new: a weekly post called L Fam Weekly. It will mostly be pictures and videos, along with a little recap of our week. I'm going to try to keep up with it but we'll see how it goes. Anyhow, here's the first installment of L Fam Weekly:
This week was pretty laid back compared to the previous week. We actually didn't have a lot going on and I was thankful for that. Emerson didn't go to preschool on Monday because we were all sick with colds. I even went to the doctor to make sure I didn't have strep after spotting yucky white patches on my throat. We really didn't go anywhere Monday or Tuesday because I wanted to make sure we didn't pass on our germs to anyone else.
By Wednesday we all had cabin fever and we were in desperate need of groceries. Emerson entertained Adelyn while I got ready for the day.

Then we headed to the commissary (grocery store on base) and stocked up. Afterwards we met Jesse for a picnic lunch at the playground.

On Thursday we spent the entire morning at one of the playgrounds in our neighborhood. A couple of friends met us there and I enjoyed chatting while Emerson played with her little friends.

Emerson has really been fighting naps lately so I've been letting her skip them more often than not. I like that we are able to put her to bed earlier and have more time in the evenings to hang out. On Thursday afternoon she was upstairs playing in her room when I noticed that she got really quiet. I went upstairs and this is what I found:

Sweet girl. Meanwhile, this little cutie and I got some one on one time.

Friday was doctor day! Emerson had preschool in the morning so Adelyn and I did some Target shopping before her appointment.

Unfortunately we had to wait FOREVER at the doctor. It was super crowded and they were just way behind. Jesse ended up having to leave work to pick up E from school because I was stuck at the doctor. The good news is that Adelyn is healthy and growing and she did great with her immunizations.

That afternoon Emerson had her three year check up. It wasn't crowded but we still waited forever. It was not ideal with an overtired toddler and a fussy baby but we survived. I probably won't schedule two appointment in one day in the future if I can help it. :) Luckily Emerson also got a clean bill of health. I'll share her stats when I do her three year post (hopefully soon!)

That was pretty much our week in a nutshell. I'm glad that everyone is finally on the mend. As much as I hated that the girls were sick, it forced us to stay home and I was able to get a lot of work done around the house. That's always a good thing. 

Since I promised weekly videos, here's one of Adelyn trying to crawl. She has figured out that she can roll or scoot to get anywhere she wants. It's amazing how far she can make it.

I love this post idea!! What a great way to keep up with the important things of your week! I'm so glad you girls are all feeling better and that they got a great report at their check ups! :) And please do me a favor and tell that sweet little Adelyn to stop trying to grow up so fast!! ;)

Sounds like a good week (aside from the sickness, of course)! What program did you use to make your "L Fam Weekly" icon? It's really cute!
