This Week

Well, we leaped. Did you? I suppose if you made it to March 1, you did.

Here are a few things from this week.

Honor’s hair? Outta control! Those long, sweet bangs need something holding them back all the time now. I need some good ideas from Moms of girls. I have the little bow clips, but Honor loves to pull them out and chew on the bows. Headbands don’t last long either, and don’t really do a great job for holding her bangs out of her face. I’m not complaining, it’s just that I never thought I’d have this problem before her first birthday!


Honor also manages to get herself stuck in some interesting places these days. She didn’t stay happy about this for long.


One of the kids’ favorite things to do right now is play together in Caedmon’s room. He loves to “invite” her in, and she loves to go!


It doesn’t happen every day because Caedmon’s room has to be picked up of all non-little-sister-safe items before she can go in. And that just doesn’t happen every day! He wanted to read her a book the other day, though, so they read the Peek-a-Boo book Nana gave him.


Yes, you’re seeing correctly. This is my baby girl standing at the coffee table. Annoying her brother by just being there. Just wait until she figures out how to annoy him on purpose.


Chocolate chip & peanut butter chip pancakes for National Pancake Day! Made on the cast iron griddle pan Mom & Dad gave me for Christmas. I am in love with this thing, by the way. I only wish I had a real gas stovetop to use it on, for I’m sure I would love it much, much more.


I didn’t manage a photo of the completed pancakes. They were gobbled up too quickly. I suppose that’s a testament to how yummy they were.

And I can’t forget our Leap Day cupcakes! I used some things I had around the house already, so the total cost of these was free. Well, it was money already spent, not something I had to spend money for.

Caedmon and I worked on these assembly-line style. He was a great frog-eyeball-and-freckle-putter-oner.



I tried to make lips for a “girl” frog. My frosting skillz are lacking. I’m no Doughmestic Housewife, that’s for sure!


We had fun with our little frogs, though.


And Caedmon especially enjoyed the frosting.


This morning, Caedmon asked if it was still Leap Day. I told him it was March 1 now. “What do we do on March first?” My answer? “Laundry.”

Laundry just isn’t as fun as frog cupcakes.

Pin It


  1. I used to put Cameryn's crazy bangs in little pigtails on the very top of her head using those tiny, clear rubberbands. I bought several packs of them at the dollar store and I'm STILL using them 2 years later!

    1. Thanks, Laurin! Someone else suggested those, too. I never thought about using those. I guess I just assumed she didn't have enough hair. I'll give them a try!

  2. When Avery was about Honor's age, I would braid her bangs over to the side a lot.
    Miss you!

    1. I wish Honor would sit still long enough for me to braid her bangs! I can hardly get her to sit still long enough to put the clip in! I may give that a try, though. She might surprise me. Miss you guys too! Hopefully we can see you soon.

  3. I love your response to "what do we do on March 1st" !!! I'm glad I'm not the only one in blog world that doesn't plan something every day LOL

  4. I love those photos..
    You have a great touch..
