M + P : 11.11.11

Last Friday, 11/11/11, was one of those historical, never-gonna-happen-again-in-your-lifetime kind of days, but it was a pretty ordinary day around here. I wanted so badly to get a screen shot on my phone at 11:11 on 11/11/11, but alas, this mommy was changing a wicked dirty diaper. Ah, life as a stay-at-home mommy. Ordinary or not, I documented bits of our day anyways. This is a one-hour span of what life was like for Morgan + Parker on November 11th, 2011 :
Foofa was the costume of the week for Morgan. She hardly ever wears regular clothes if we are staying home for the day. Lately, she doesn't even want to go out and get the mail with me because she'd have to get dressed / put shoes on / put a coat on. Morgan has been particularly attached to her noo-noo lately too. She nuzzles it a lot. :)
Today, we started listening to Christmas music. Morgan had her ear pinned to the speaker for much of the morning, memorizing the words and recalling her favorites from last year.
Parker is still a little faucet. Teething hard and filling in the gaps in his gums where he was missing teeth. I've lost count of how many new teeth he's gotten in the last few weeks. This is one of the few shots I got of him not gnawing on a toy.
In deep thought and concentration. He reminds me a million times a day of his daddy. Love it!
The pouty face. She couldn't have possibly learned this from me. It was almost lunch time and I could just sense the crankiness that was about to ensue.
The chippy hot pink pedicure. Matches mine, but it's not nearly as cute.
Another reminder of Mark. Not because of his posture, but when Daddy isn't home, Parker is the King of the Remote. If only he knew how to work it. Usually he ends up turning something off, or changing the channel, and thoroughly annoying his sister. ;)
My distraction for keeping Parker's little fingers out of the dirty dishes (he LOVES grabbing the dirty silicone straws from his sippy cup out of the silverware basket and chewing them) was to teach him how to start the dishwasher. He really likes to press the buttons (of course) even if we don't need him to yet.

Did you document 11/11/11?


  1. Oh my, I had forgotten what it's like to have busy little people home all day! Here we did nothing special, just acknowledged the day :)

  2. Very cute. So fun to see little bits of you and Mark in the kids! =)
