Steve took the entire holiday weekend off, and it was wonderful. It was the first weekend he didn't work in probably seven months. We went to a Royals game, watched several movies, ate out a few times, and basically just hung out all weekend. After watching The Pursuit of Happyness on Thursday night, he decided he wanted to solve a Rubik's Cube so we went to Target and bought one. Sure enough, yesterday afternoon he actually finished solving it. Nothing like putting vacation time to good use, right?

The little guy is two months old today. As he gets older and is no longer in that sleep-anywhere-anytime phase, things are starting to get a little more difficult. It's more difficult to go places (although that's mostly because of Emma), and it's near impossible to get any housework done. I used to think it was hard to get stuff done when it was only Emma - what on earth was I doing???? Now that it really is hard to get things done, I can't believe I didn't take advantage of having only one kid and keep my house spotless all the time. Now there is absolutely no chance of that happening. Sigh.

Emma looks adorable with her twin babies, and your son is just so beautiful and gorgeous. Maybe you need to create a little game for Emma to teach her to put her toys away in the right spot. I found that training my daughter to do that from a young age, she now enjoys cleaning up, only how long that will last is another question, and it does help me to do other things at the same time too.
