Savoring Summer

While my last “official” day of school was technically Tuesday, I still went in for meetings on Wednesday, had a full day of appointments, visiting and praise band practice yesterday, so today feels like my first real day of summer vacation. 

I’m quickly adjusting to the lack of lazy, leisurely mornings (ahem, someone likes to rise and shine at 6am still!), but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.  Following bottle and breakfast, Dad left for an appointment so I spent the bulk of my morning playing and observing the ever-changing personality of little man. 

Knowing that we’ll soon be in the single-digit countdown (I’m 30 weeks along today!) until the arrival of our next baby, I feel like I want to soak up all the special moments possible!  I love seeing him climb, crawl, walk and waddle all around our house.  Not to mention hearing him babble, match voice inflections, and test things out.  For instance, today he spent about 15 minutes deconstructing the Sesame Street car wash toy he got for Christmas.  Then, he inspected each piece to see if it would fit in a different place.  He eventually pinched one piece under his chin and tried to stand up – just to see if he could. 

I hope to post more frequently with a little more “free” time for a while.  I have some pretty hefty goals set for myself (and the family) for the summer months so we’ll see if it all comes together.  For now, check out a few of my favorite pictures I took recently.

  1. 30 weeks? Wow, time has flown by, it seems. Love the photos. Where are your parent’s moving to? I see their house is up for sale. Hope you’re enjoying your summer break so far!!

  2. MaryKay and I got ice cream tonight and we realized we hadn’t heard from you in a while, so I thought I’d check out the blog. I love your musings on Calder and parenting.

    Still feeling well??? Two months to go!!! Crazy! I love the black and white photos. I think you need to add some belly shots 🙂
