i have no excuse for being a bad blogger lately. i do apologize. deeply. here’s our week in review….
Friday (june 19th) – celebrate dad/grandpa’s birthday…. davey got to help dad blow out the candle
Saturday – nothing much.
on sunday evening, we went over to hang out with the family (so dad and dave could play with dad’s new wii golf game) – and i love this photo of dad (grandpa) with sam:
we got some good smiles from sam (she gives ‘em all the time…. just not to the camera!)
and then we had a snack of some bunny crackers…. some naughty bunny crackers:
and then davey enjoyed some short superman and spiderman films with uncle tom while the rest of us did something else in the living room…
Monday – play group and i did something to my back. OUCH!
Tuesday – i worked at the store. and had a lot of fun. i love it there… Treasury really is my happy place these days! that night sam was a monster. i lost count how many times i had to get up with her. we’re thinking she’s teething but we can’t feel or see anything. ugh.
Wednesday (June 24) – sam turned 8 months old AND we had a play date with Cece (this is becoming a weekly thing) where the kids enjoyed playing with some old school toys:
i think this is my favorite shot of the day:
i also have some pretty cute photos of davey and cece’s feet. cece was trying on some sandals while wearing some cute pink striped socks (turns out i gave her the socks and i was giving her the sandals, too!)… which makes her a true northwest girl…. socks and sandals!
It was another rough night with sam, though not nearly as bad as tuesday night!
Thursday – i was up, showered, dressed, hair and make-up done…. and i was downstairs and drinking this:
before either of the kids were up. it’s just hot cocoa (made with 1/2 water and 1/2 milk) but it was tasty. i also folded 3 loads of laundry… so it wasn’t an entirely relaxing "late start" to the day!
Friday – just chillin’ at home some more. we hit a few garage sales in the morning. had a fun visit from auntie taryn in mid afternoon. i tried to take some "8-month" photos of sam in the morning, but they didn’t go so well. and i didn’t push the issue. so here are two outtakes:
maybe i’ll try again tomorrow. once i get a decent photo of her with that elephant (to track her growth) i’ll share a list of "sam at 8 months."
tomorrow’s agenda is unknown. we have nothing on the calendar. it’s our last "free weekend" before 5 weekends of MADNESS (also known as "the month of july"), so i plan to enjoy the laziness to the fullest. and i should plan davey’s birthday party since it’s next saturday (the 4th)!
