It’s spring break, it’s spring break, it’s spring break!!! We are having just the best time that could be possibly had over here. Naps are happening, much junk food is being consumed, I’m reading an actual real life book, we even took what I’m going to call our first legit family vacation–because it wasn’t to a National Park, and it wasn’t with our families. It was a riot I tell you. More on that later, but for now what I have for you is just a shameless photo dump for my family on recent Staples happenings!
One day she randomly found the tennis rackets and insisted we bring them to the park even though her hand eye coordination needs to make a few leaps and bounds before that makes any sense at all. Adorable wrap from a friends etsy shop HERE.
Drew is growing up wwaaaaay faster than Camryn did, and who ever knew that I would be such a baby person? Newborn babies in particular. The newer the better. Like day one is the absolute pinnacle of motherhood if you ask me–all those wrinkles. Gahh! I mean, chub is great, but WRINKLES?? come on. Drew is all chubbed out and don’t get me wrong, I still love the kid, but I pretty much die and stare and get really obnoxious and baby hungry every time I see a newborn. Which is ridiculous, I know, since I have a 6 month old. But don’t worry, last time around, toddlerdom proved an excellent cure for baby hunger.
Bear just soaking in the sunshine. She’s probably been in this family long enough to deserve a blog post, right? For now, let’s just say I don’t hate having a dog, but I also don’t absolutely adore her. We’re on pretty neutral terms she and I.
If anyone had told me how much I was going to love Kansas City, I wouldn’t have believed them, but it’s pretty much a poor stay at home mom’s dream–there is soooo much free crap to do around here with kids. Exhibit A–the gymnastics gym.
A sweet neighbor cut these for us from her flower bed on our way home from a walk one day. I LOVE fresh flowers on my table!
went to the Kansas City Zoo with a bunch of med school wife friends. 4 out of 5 of us were nursing, which meant we’d pretty much stop at every animal for one of the babies to feed and it was a perfect, slow, and relaxing time. One of these girls had a one month old, and another had a 10 day old!! And they’re just at the zoo for 6 hours like it ain’t no thing. I was thoroughly impressed. Maybe next time around, I’ll remember their examples and try to take my next one on at least a walk before their half birthday. (True story, we were taking a family walk the day Drew turned 4 months old and I realized it was his first one. oops!)
And that’s a wrap.
P.s. for mom and dad— here’s a video of Camryn reading herself “King Bidgood’s in the Bathtub” and a really old one of Drew (but none of you have met him, so what’s the difference?)
