Life has been fun lately! A good kind of busy, full of friends and fun summer activities. I realized I have so many pictures I have yet to post on my blog so today you are getting a picture dump. Embry and my sister are in town this week and next week we are going to Colorado on vacation! Hard to believe July will be over soon... time really flies with little ones. Friday night Jon and I got into bed and he said, "parenthood is exhausting!". Yes and yes. So fun but oh so tiring! So what have we been up to lately?
Last week Ford woke up with a fever and hives and ended up getting a cough and runny nose so we spent the weekend at home. We got him this new Kidzlane cleaning set and saying he is obsessed is an understatement. Since we were quarantined at home I did lots of deep cleaning and he was right there next to me mopping, Swiffering, and helping. He is so cute. If you know Ford then you know he hates to be dirty and has to have things perfectly put away (cough cough, daddy).
We've gotten a lot of fun pool days lately, both at Mimi and Papa's house and our neighborhood pools. Ford is getting so brave with his puddle jumpers and spends most of the time kicking around and filling up cups with water. He also is in a sunglasses obsession stage. Anytime we walk outside he says "Mama too bright! Need sunglasses!". So to prevent meltdowns, we keep 1 pair in the stroller and 1 pair in the car.
Since it's starting to get a lot hotter down here (for the most part we've had a mild summer up until now), we try to get our morning walk in before 8am. Lucy sometimes snoozes and Ford loves strolling. Jon joins us when he is home and it is quite the workout pushing this monster stroller.
Getting pictures of one baby looking at the camera and smiling is hard enough so getting a picture of the 2 of them together is tough stuff. They love each other so much, it pretty much melts me into a huge puddle.
Back to the first picture and Ford not liking to get dirty, he also doesn't like to be messy with food (I know, crazy). Last week we went to Chick Fila and he ate all of his lunch so I got him an ice cream cone and he hadn't taken more than 3-4 licks before he said "All done, mama hands dirty, need to wash." He cracks me up.
Very rare to get a picture of me and Jon together so car selfies it is!
Lucy is officially in cloth diapers and I love it! I added a couple of girly prints to our diaper stash and I love her big ole fluffy booty.
One of the coolest things about toddlers is watching them make friends. Ford sees his different buddies every day at play dates, pool, and park, and lately he has been calling Kennedy his best friend, it is adorable! Kennedy is going to be a big sister any day now and she and Ford just love each other.
My 2 favorite Jimmys! (My mom's name is Jimi for those of you who didn't know and I am slightly obsessed with Jimmy Fallon.... and his icecream....omg).
I chopped of my hair last week and I am kind of obsessed with it. I go back and forth from short hair and longer hair and right now it feels so good to have it short in the heat! I made Jon take a picture of me before Mom's Night Out because let's face it... wearing a dress and makeup does NOT happen often.
Lucy girl is so drooly lately so she wears a bib all day now (and luckily ours are cute!). This bib is Deeks and Me.
One of my best friends Morgan is having her second, a baby girl, in less than 2 months! Our boys are 8 days a part and we survived our 1st year of parenthood because of each other! We threw her a baby sprinkle last week and it was beautiful.
2 weeks ago we went to a gender reveal party for one of my oldest friends Kaylee who is welcoming a baby girl in November!! Gender reveals, baby showers, 1st birthdays... I love this season of life.
My BFF Alyssa and her hubby Adam drove in on Friday from Houston to meet Miss Lucy and we had such a sweet visit with them. Ford loves having guests over and was quite the entertainment!
