I was up by 5:30 this morning and Sierra was already at work. I prepped dinner for later and once Jackson was up at 6:45am, the day began. I wish I could bottle his energy and drink some!
We met Jackson's very special friend, Celeste, after Riley's morning nap which she is now moving to 10:30 a.m. -- maybe it's her way of saying two naps is ok? Miss Celeste will be four next week which is incredible because it feels like I was just meeting her for the first time at a couple weeks old with Jack in his womb. We can't make it to her party so instead we spent some time with the big mouse at Chuckster's. This was the first time Jackson could climb up the play enclosure by himself AND play most games without any help from mom! Hooray to this milestone of independence! Riley kept herself cozy in the Ergo as Celeste and Max's mommy, Skye, and I actually had a few uninterrupted minutes to talk! Phew! If you have never been to Chuck E. Cheese during the week you are missing a whole new world.
After a quick trip to Babies R Us for another baby gate (stairs) and Target for a cake pop, Starbucks, and returns (I am the queen of returns), we headed home with two...well three...tired Izzards. Two fell asleep in the car. Luckily the driver did not. We mustered up some energy later for some baking -- Fall is here so that means Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies -- and enjoyed a beautiful sunset while they cooled. What baking treat reminds you of Fall?
