Small Town Mom Diaries

It’s already 10, so I’m going to have to be quick because my head is dying to hit my pillow.

I really should be better about updating the blog because every time that I actually sit down to do it, I honestly can’t remember what I’ve been up to, though I feel like I’ve been busy.  I guess a tiny, teething, human really sucks the energy from me.  Who would have known? (Except for every other mother on Earth).

I’ve been doing a low of sewing projects.  A. Lot.  But they’re all gifts for my knocked up friends and family members who read the blog so I really can’t post pictures and talk about how proud of myself I am.  But there are a few lucky ladies with some awesome custom gear headed their way when I head their way.

Speaking of, I suppose that our family is turning into somewhat of a snowbird family.  We have all of our vacation plans in fall and winter!  First, we’re headed to the Caribbean to introduce Lucas to Angel’s side of the family.  I’m a little excited to bust my shorts out of mothballs (see: what a lovely spring we’ve had this summer).  In case this move hasn’t been rough enough for me, it turns out that I really miss the heat.  And I no longer believe everyone who tells me that “this (fill in the blank) really isn’t normal!”  I think the constant rain, heater in May, sweatshirts in August, and blankets at night are my new normal.

Also, I blame Dave Ramsey for my new desire to take my snorkel gear to the local  mall fountain and start stealing change.

 

Anyway, here’s what I’ve been up to while I wasn’t here:

Too Lucas to the zoo in Grand Rapids

Got the exterior of one of our rental houses painted in Arizona.  The dead grass reminded me that it's probably 120 degrees there and made me miss it a little less

Lucas turned 9 months old!  We celebrated with his first "big boy" dinner of carrots, pasta, and a sippy cup.  I'm not sure if I was more proud of him for turning 9 months old, or myself for keeping him happy and healthy for 9 months!

This face just makes my day.  Every day, any time.

I’ll write more tomorrow about his 9 month well visit at the doctor.  Nighty night!
