There are so many little details of our life that I desire to document and capture in this blog. But every post takes time and energy. As I type right now Morgan is resting her chin on my forearm while she asks, “What is that that you are typing? Who are you writing to?” You see, post “operation no thumb suck” we have turned into a household with a 4-year old that no longer naps BUT desperately needs to nap. I still think I’d rather her not suck her thumb than take a nap, but some days I’m not so sure. Anyway, my afternoons that used to be filled with time at the computer or in the laundry room or at the kitchen sink are no longer times of solitude, my sous chef/co-pilot is never far from my side. It is a delight to have her company but can also hinder my efficiency.
With that said, I’m going to wrap up last week in one post!
Our family has a new favorite pastime… wiffle ball. I am embarrassed to tell y’all how sore I am from playing wiffle ball in our back yard. I “wiff” a lot and I think that’s why I am so sore. It hurts to swing as hard as you possibly can and MISS. We started with the roof being a home run. But our skills quickly improved so we had to move a “home run” to over the roof. We have laughed really hard and I am still afraid Justin is going to line-drive the ball to my face. You should see me throw it to him… I throw it fast and duck. I have no glove. Maybe I just need a face mask. We have been very entertained by our new sport and Morgan can nail the ball.
Next up, John Martin. He’s always out there with us, chewing on grass and breaking in his new teeth.
Aren’t babies’ teeth hilarious? I find his little jack-o-lantern smile simply irresistable. He loves to hold the wiffle balls and I can already see he is anxious to take a swing at it.
Morgan had her end of the year party last week. She’s finishing out “3-year old” preschool and they wrapped up the year with a Sprinkler Party. It was as entertaining as the end of the year program.
The parents weren’t the only ones watching… those who weren’t included were green with envy.
Last week also marked our first harvest from the garden. Sugar snap peas, yellow squash & zuccinni.
Paiger was up with the sun one morning and graciously assisted me in my morning watering routine.
Thanks, Seleta for the “adorable” jammies!
I also whipped up JM a little onesie to match his sister’s dresses. I simply ironed Heat’nBond light onto the fabric and then cut out the owls, peeled away the parchment backing, & ironed the owls on the onesie.
Ok, John Martin is up… be back soon with another recipe!
