Camo Babies

Yesterday I put Graham's camoflauge shirt on. Olivia has a onesie that is camouflage that she has grown out of that I still let her wear as a shirt, tucked in you so can't see the snaps. It works great! I thought about sewing it into a shirt but want Graham to be able to wear it once he is bigger. When Olivia saw Graham with his camo on, she said- "Olia wear that shirt!" So she went into her room to put on her camo shirt. Once I saw them all matchy matchy I had to take some pictures. Matthew came in to take a few and asked- "Since when are we dressing our kids in matching clothes?" and then he asked "and why are they wearing camouflage?". I was kind of thinking the same thing as the photo shoot played out but I couldn't help myself!

-Oh, final thought- Matthew and I want to try and see if we can get Olivia to do that huge smile for every picture taken of her until she is at least 16. Do you think we can do it?

We're Like This All the Time

I had the best day yesterday! I went out by myself for an hour and a half or so and went shopping! Matthew watched the kids for me. Graham is just about 6 weeks old. I have not been out by myself since before he was born and probably longer. It was great! I rode my bike to H&M and bought a few things. It was raining pretty steadily and I must say it felt great! On the way there it was just barely sprinkling so I had a dry shopping experience, but on the way home I got soaked. I loved every minute of it! I love riding the bike! Matthew said it best when he said that is makes everything seem whimsical. I think I smiled the whole ride home in the rain. Also, I am not going to lie, I hummed this song the entire time. I am not ashamed! I am sure I looked ridiculous riding my bike soaking wet with the biggest, dumbest grin on my face. What a fun, new combination of awesome things- shopping, raining and bike riding. If only I played tennis in there somewhere it would have been a perfect day.

Next item of business, Matthew has been growing out his beard for the sole purpose of torturing me, despite what he says. He has been growing it for about 3 weeks. So yesterday he decided to make his move. While I was sleeping he sneaked into the bathroom and shaved this atrocity. Behold the worst Matthew has ever looked:

Apparently, Ambrose Burnside, the man who is responsible for the modern day sideburns, was Matthew's inspiration. Awesome.

Someday maybe this kid can grow such luxurious facial hair and he and his father can both torture me. That actually sounds pretty awesome if I am being honest!
