Erik and I kicked off the weekend with a trip to IKEA on Friday night. We have been wanting to get a dresser for our bedroom for awhile and we finally took the plunge and used some of our Christmas money. We were thankful that Micah and Keziah both behaved really well during the shopping trip. It helped that we spent awhile in the kid's area so Micah could run around and play. He got really excited when he saw a whole pile of "naughty stools" :)
It was a bit of an ordeal getting the two giant boxes home in our car and then constructing the dresser the next morning, but we are both really happy with it!
On Saturday afternoon Erik & Micah went on a boy's date with Erik's dad and brothers to a Motorbike show. Erik got some great pictures of Micah enjoying some of the big boy toys!
Yesterday afternoon we took advantage of the sunshine and went to Mill Lake for a walk and some playtime in the park for Micah. I think the whole city of Abbotsford had the same idea because the place was PACKED!
We ran into E and her two boys K & S who I used to babysit before Keziah was born. Micah recognized them right away and had a blast running around with some other boys.
Keziah slept peacefully in the stroller for the entire outing...
Now we look ahead to a busy week with Erik's hockey games, care group and our current involvements with TREK leadership eating up the evenings. I'm thankful to have the days at home but I know Erik feels extra busy when he's working full days and then has plans every evening. We're both thankful for nice weather these days though and we're supposed to have sunshine all week!
And one last thing I wanted to blog about: I was inspired by Drea's blog to post some comparison pictures of both of my kids as babies to see how much they look alike. Here they are dressed in the same overalls and lying in the crib (Micah on the left and Keziah on the right):
And I couldn't resist trying to recreate the crying picture I had of Micah on the same day (I'm such a mean Mommy!):
