Doing a Friday roundup with Kelly on the latest and greatest from our abode.
1. I have gone from baseball wife to baseball mom and enjoying every minute! Although you may want to ask me again in two months when the season is over and I am exhausted from all the running. Having a baby in tow this year has made things a bit more complex, but I don’t want to miss a minute of it. My heart melts every single time when the boys get a good hit, because they always look back at me with a big smile on their face making sure I saw them and looking for my applause.
2. Yesterday was a pretty big deal for our little sluggers as Kolbe got his first grass stain on his baseball pants! He couldn’t have been prouder!! Showcasing it to the neighbor kids and asking me to take a picture, because we need to make sure daddy sees it! (I hope he is okay that it washes out.)
3. Grace is already 4 1/2 months and the boys have already given her big shoes to fill! She may have been born a preemie, but she is hitting all of her development goals like a champ. She is still a peanut shy of 11 pounds and in the 3rd percentile.
4. Because she is so cute I will throw in one more about Grace. She sleeps beautifully during the night as in through the night, but naps horribly during the day. I have succumb to trying to get her to nap in her crib or mamaRoo. The only place she will nap, her Boba as in 3 hour naps!
5. We are hoping to take a low key family vacation this year for just 2-3 nights. Last year our plans didn’t pan out as bedrest spoiled the fun. I am a little nervous doing this with a baby and having a hard time thinking of activities that would work for all five of us. Any tips or suggestions??
6. Warm weather and sun have finally hit the midwest. The great thing about homeschooling we can enjoy it and are calling this year a wrap! I am still having the boys read, do math and spelling over the summer but on a much lower key. I now know what teachers feel like at the end of the year, counting down the days.
7. This past week I was pulling out of the garage, distracted, mind racing, running late and looking in my purse. Until the crunch. I looked up to see the driver side mirror bent back and shattered, sigh. I called Aaron to tell him what happened, thankful for his easy going nature as he just laughed it off. After putting the mirror back together we continued on our journey not realizing the peanut gallery I had in the back. Both boys chimed in with comments. “I am not happy with you…you need to be more careful…maybe you shouldn’t be driving this…this van cost a lot of money…you should just let daddy drive from now on.” The next day I heard Kolbe let out a loud sigh, only to have him tell me he was still not happy with me for wrecking the van!
Time for the weekend!!
