Some days it’s raining and everyone is losing it and you drop your donuts on the grocery store floor but you eat them anyway. That was yesterday.
And then there are days like this:
Today was my big boy’s last day of school! Waaaaahhhh!!! Look how much he has changed since last fall!
(His teachers gave him these shades as a present and he wore them all morning!)
He has grown so much in the past school year! He was barely talking last fall and now he is starting to say short sentences and loves to sing! He made so many great friends and his teachers were so sweet to him.
We just couldn’t have asked for a better year. Here’s his little end of the year report card!
Happy Mother’s Day! My day was absolutely perfect. Nothing outrageous but just so dang nice. I told Ryan that all I really wanted for Mother’s Day was a good cup of coffee and a nice walk downtown. So that’s what we did! We had breakfast at Queen Street Grocery and wandered the streets of Charleston. It was absolutely beautiful. And I tried about 10 times to get a nice picture with my kids and these are as good as we could do, haha!
We stopped by a farmer’s market on the way home and both of my boys devoured some boiled peanuts! They are little southern boys for sure!
I am so lucky to be surrounded by great examples of moms all around me. My friends who are just starting out as moms, learning as we go but completely supporting and helping each other. And of course the other moms in my life (like my own) with grown children who have done it right and have taught me that simply loving and encouraging your children with whatever they decide to do makes all the difference. Moms make the world go round!
Our sweet, sweet, chill, cool as a cucumber, smiley Miles is 7 months old today!
Now that I’m finally over my food poisoning/crazy flu that hit me this week, I wanted to post some cute pictures I took while Grandpa Jim and Grandma Barb were here last weekend!
Every day that my parents were here last week was jam-packed with activities (just the way I like it!) so this week on the blog I’m going to show you what we were up to!
On Monday we went out to Johns Island to pick strawberries! They were pretty picked over already but we ended up bringing 9 pounds home. Oops! Emmett loved carrying his own basket but he especially loved throwing sticks into their pond.
This next picture is a classic Emmett face! And I didn’t realize I captured it until I got home, haha! He often rolls his eyes or closes his eyes like he’s irritated with us. This time he was clearly irritated with all of the pictures. So funny!
Well here I am, a couple days late again, posting Miles’ monthly update! We had such a busy, fun filled week with my parents that I forgot to do it on time. Sorry (again) buddy!
I think the biggest news this month was that Miles had his first tooth breakthrough! He tried his first solid foods in the past couple days (blueberry and banana) and is getting a little better about drinking formula and breast milk out of a bottle.
He’s awesome at sitting up and loves to jump around in his kangaroo. We’ve been to Mommy and Me Yoga twice and he giggles the whole time.
