Happy halfway through the week friends, hope you all are having a great one!! Even though we are now three days out from it, I'm still dreaming of our past weekend over here, it was such a good one & I hated to see it go! We didn't have much planned (don't those always turn out to be the best?), the weather was perfection & we took full advantage. Waverly Maye decided to boycott naps, it was a slight disaster come late Sunday afternoon, yet it gave us extra time to spend together while getting some things done around the house, both which made me very happy! :)
It got warm enough for our first beach day of the year on Saturday, I was so excited to take Waverly since other than walks, she really hadn't been there since early last fall. I'm also trying to fit in as many trips now as I can, though I am definitely planning to try, I don't know how realistic it is to take a toddler & newborn there once baby girl gets here! I guess only time will tell, I'm hoping we can make it happen with some family members & their extra hands to help with what I'm sure what will be a traveling circus!
Our outdoor girl certainly didn't miss a beat after a few months away, she still loved the sand & water every bit as much as she did last year, maybe even more!! The water was a little cold but it didn't phase her, she was splashing & skipping through it like it was nothing, and then putting her face directly in it before laughing hysterically. I could look at these pictures of her forever, she is so full of energy & happiness, one of the many things I adore about being her mama is living life again through her eyes.
In other highlights of the weekend, one of my best friends had her second baby girl Friday morning!! Her oldest daughter is about a year younger than Waverly so it's been really fun to go through this pregnancy with her. I can't believe we will have four girls between us within the next couple of months! I was able to visit her at the hospital a couple of times, there's nothing like a trip to the maternity floor to serve as a reality check that we will be there before we know it! So exciting (& crazy)!!
And lastly, a recent Waverly Maye development that's had us on toes more than ever. Ever since the weather warmed up, I've been letting Waverly go into the backyard & jump on the trampoline while I clean up in the kitchen or get dinner started. I love that we can do that now since my husband put the fence in & she can't go anywhere, I just leave the screen door open & listen to her play. A couple of weeks ago, she had been out there a few minutes when she walked in with her big girl panties in her hand & said "I peed outside because I am a doggie". OMG. She literally squatted in the backyard like our lab does. I have obviously tried to explain to her that she's not a dog & that we pee in the potty inside, but ever since if I even turn my head for a minute, she is bent down peeing. Here's to hoping this is a phase, there is no doubt our neighbors really think we have lost it now. As for us, it's hard not to laugh & look forward to telling her all about this one day.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
