Hello, friends! It’s time to catch up again, so grab your favorite beverage and we’ll let the sharing commence. Once again, I have sweets to offer, but this time it is a strawberry shortcake instead of fudge. Yummmm…even though I’m someone who doesn’t care much for white cake or strawberries, I freaking love strawberry shortcake.
So, if we were having coffee I’d tell you that Little Man has one week left until school starts. He’s sad about having to go back, but excited about getting to learn new things at the same time. I’ll be sad to lose him for 7.5 hours a day, but glad he is excited. It’s been a nice summer for him. We didn’t do much in July and August, as our vacation plans were in June, but I think he’s had a good summer. He’s played outside a ton, spent lots of time in the pool, taken trips to the library, spent a lot of time playing video games, and has played with his sister a lot.
I’d also tell you that I’m having a guest blogger next week–Matty Malin will be contributing a post. If you aren’t following his blog, Confessions, yet, I highly recommend it. (Obviously, because who would let someone post to their site that they didn’t highly recommend? Haha.) He blogs about his life and struggles with depression and anxiety. Check out his blog here. He just celebrated his 100th blog post, so there is lots of good stuff to choose from.
While we are having our beverages, you might notice Baby Girl toddling about. She isn’t fully walking yet–still crawls most of the time–but she is getting braver at taking steps. She took 20 steps (yep, we counted) yesterday! She’s coming right along–we’re getting her to try more table food and are cutting back on bottles. Some websites I’ve seen say babies should be off the bottle at 12 months, but since she started eating solids about 5 months late, I think she has a little extra time. Anyway, she’s down to two bottles (one at nap and at bedtime), so we’re making progress.
Next Saturday we are having some friends over to grill out, swim, and enjoy some adult beverages. Well, our two best friends and my brother and his soon-to-be fiance. I’m looking forward to that, and since it’s only a few people, hopefully I won’t do my normal “freak out and consider canceling” routine a couple days prior.
That’s all for now–I hope you enjoy your weekend!
