Morning snuggles

IMG_2091 Maisie is always the best little snuggle bunny but when she first wakes in the morning or after nap, she's just a little Velcro snuggle bunny which is just the sweetest thing.

I can't believe that it's been almost a week again since my last post, the days are just flying by. On Monday Maisie started with her new gymnastics coach Deena, who is just great with the little girls. Monday Maisie was a little hesitant working with Deena but on Wednesday she was like a fish in water, totally comfortable. This week they worked on forward and backward rolls, bridges, handstands, headstands, bar, balance beam, trampoline, hand and arm positions and even doing the arms up in the air "ta da" at the end of each exercise. Maisie's class ranges from Maisie's age up to four years old and watching this group of little girls marching around the gym is just adorable.

Tuesday started camp and her teachers are just great and Maisie took to them immediately. Her room is decorated with all kinds of fish which Maisie just loves. They have fun playing outside, dancing, games and doing lots of art projects. Each morning Maisie looked forward to going to camp so that was just a great and easy transition from school to camp and one less thing that I needed to stress about.

Every day this week it has been in the 90's and quite humid so each afternoon Eammon has taken Maisie swimming before dinner which has been nice for me as it's allowed me time to prepare dinner uninterrupted and also get a few things done around the house. What I've been bad about this week, in fact the past few weeks, has been taking pictures. We just seem to be on the go constantly and I forget or am too busy to pull out the camera, I need to be better about taking more piccies. This morning though we had a play date with Jessie & Ava so in an attempt to be better about picture taking I brought along my camera and got a couple of cute piccies of Maisie and Ava, they are just so sweet together!

IMG_2107IMG_2108 Well, the weekend is here and we'll be doing potty boot camp so wish us luck. I hope that everyone has a great weekend!


  1. e started the strict potty training this week too. No pull ups at all. I even made her wear trainging pants to bed, knowing I would probably have a mess to clean up in the morning. Yes, I washed sheets and mattress pads for 3 days, but she GOT IT! She realized that she does have the power to stay dry and use the potty when she needs it. The best accomplishment was going on errands yesterday and she ran all the way to the public potty and went! Stayed dry all day.
    Good luck Maisie! I know you can do it!

  2. Oh you always make mommyhood sound fun!

  3. Love the outfit she is wearing! It is darling. Good luck with potty training. I tried. Gave up and then yesterday Maylin just said she was ready. We have by dry two days. Knock on wood. You can tell your hubby loves snuggle time just as much as Maise. I love little girls with their daddys.

  4. Lisa, I know 90's and the humidity is a BAD thing for some, but Utah is still having what I consider WINTER. It is June and I am ready for at least some 75 degree weather...maybe I'll hope for that by July 4th?
    It looks like you have the summer off to a great start! And the potty training thing...don't sweat it. I know it can be nasty, but really it is a small moment. Hey, I'll trade you a couple of teenagers straight across. I know how to potty train, but who knows WHAT to do with these two!

  5. What a sweetheart Maisie is. May the force be with you on the potty training.

  6. Her little camp sounds like so much fun! Glad it was an easy transition. Good luck with potty boot camp!


  7. You guys are busy, busy! Miss you and hope we can have a play date soon.

    Good luck with potty boot camp!
