Another month is almost over! I can’t believe summer is almost over. There were many things to smile about this month! So in no particular order:
10. The Little Girl
She is just so cute! Even when I’m sleep deprived she makes me smile. How you can not smile at these expressions?
9. The Man
He still isn’t working (we’re waiting on a start date for his job) so he’s been around a lot. He’s been doing things around the house and it’s nice to be able to hand off munchkin. He LOVES his daughter and it just melts my heart to watch him with her. He’s also way better than I am at getting munchkin to sleep at night. I mean, how cute is this picture?
8. Going to the county fair
We had a great time taking munchkin to the county fair. It was our first time going and we had a great time. We saw some animals and explored the vendors and ate some yummy pulled pork sandwiches. This is going to be a yearly event for us.
7. Going to a triple-A baseball game
A friend on Facebook was giving away tickets to the Tacoma Rainiers so I jumped on them. I was given 4 tickets so we invited some friends to enjoy the game with us. We got there right before the game started and the parking lot was fun. None of us had been there before so we found a side street to park on. We ended up having to walk all the way around the stadium but we managed to get there in the middle of the second inning. Munchkin slept for most of the game. She did eat too and it was the first time I nursed in public. Even though I used a cover I was proud of myself as I’m still not really comfortable nursing in public.
6. Celebrating 3 years of marriage
The Man and I had our 3rd anniversary at the beginning of the month. My mom was here and she watched Munchkin so we could go out for dinner. It was nice to just be the two of us again, even if we did miss Munchkin. We were also home by 9:30…does this make us old?
5. My new faucet
My anniversary present from my amazing husband (who is currently trying to feed our crying baby) was a touch faucet that I’ve been wanting since we bought the house. It’s awesome and I love it!
4. Having my mom here
With having the unexpected c-section, it was wonderful to have my mom here to help out. She also enjoyed getting Munchkin snuggles!
3. Munchkin turned 1 month
She’s getting so big! I know, I know, she’s going to get bigger but still. She’s smiling at us and cooing and grunting. We love all of her expressions!
2. Trips to Ocean Shores & Port Townsend
While mom was here we took a day trip to Port Townsend and an overnight to Ocean Shores to show her the Washington coast. We had a great time in both places. A fire on the beach in Ocean Shores was fun, even if it was a bit cold for munchkin.
1. Blackberries are in season!
We have blackberry bushes all around our house and one of our favorites things to do is to pick them. We love to just eat them and I will also freeze them and make jam. I’m not making jam this year and while we haven’t picked as many as we usually do we have picked a few. We hope to take full advantage of them next summer!
