Still describes life around here lately.
Especially since one of our members took off on a vacation with his Lolo and Lola- a week in California visiting Uncle Kyle and playing on the beach. It will be the longest he has ever been away from home and his mama, but so far it sounds like he is having a blast.
Snapshots as we headed out to the airport…
I just can’t believe how big and independent he has grown to be. It hurts and makes me swell with pride all at the same time.
And the love between these two just kills me. Sis is sure missing her bruh-bruh this weekend.
It’s still hot and although I am finally starting to feel some energy returning, I’m still needing naps and extraordinary amounts of high protein foods to keep me going. I felt this way last time so I’m not sure why I am so surprised by it again, but it just amazes me how different each pregnancy can be. It’s almost like a whole new adventure- and just when you feel like you know exactly what you are doing, you are thrown for a loop. Now at twelve weeks I am impatient for the energy to return and that second trimester urge to get out an jog to hurry up and hit me. I’m tired of a messy house and a nauseous tummy. It will come, I know.
Even though the temps have still been relentless this hot July, we were blessed with a little rain shower the other morning which brought out cheers, naked children running through the yard and even a nauseous mama couldn’t resist running out with the camera.
It was a beautiful and welcome sight that I wish we would see a little more often these days. I am getting excited as we plan the fall garden and finish the raised beds! Hurry up fall!
Not much else has been going on around here honestly. A lot of longing for autumn and her cooler temps as we continue to rest, hydrate, entertain ourselves indoors and dream about more time spent out. And part of me feels guilty for looking so far ahead- but we are doing our best to enjoy the now while looking ahead.
There is however, one thing I am still totally digging about summer right now…
the beautiful, wild zinnias we still have coming. With a big orange one just for brother.
I’ll be back soon with more adventures, new garden projects, maybe some cooking. For now though, I’m headed back to the couch to cuddle my girl and share another snack.
