Thinking about: Sweet sweet summer. Honestly, I am just so excited to have a blast with Hazel this summer. Sure I'm going to have a newborn and all.... but I really am hoping that we can still have an amazing summer together! She is at such an amazing (though sometimes challenging) age (19 months). Almost the moment she gets up she asks to go outside, "ohside?" she says, so cute! The last few days we have been outside from the moment we wake up until the evening with a break in there for nap time. Im so happy she is such an outdoor girl since Bob and I love being outside too.
Reading: I just started a new book called Keep Your Love On by Danny Silk. A friend posted on facebook how much she was enjoying it. I looked it up, watched the trailer and immediately downloaded it to my Kindle Ipad app. Some of the language used in the book gets my back up a little bit and im not sure how I feel about it, but there are some things that are spot on. Im definitely looking forward to getting further in the book. Check out the trailer below.
Listening to: The sweet nothingness of nap time. I have always loved nap time... I mean who doesn't right? But lately I have been really cherishing it. I've decided to take at least half of nap time for myself and the other half spent doing the things I need to do around the house/ packing for camp / painting trim / working! Its so nice to spend that little bit of time for myself in a day, and I have found myself needing it more and more as this baby gets bigger and bigger in there!
Watching: My baby kick and squirm and wiggle inside. I will admit that its sometimes annoying as she can get pretty wild in there around midnight! But after hearing of someone who had to endure the overwhelming pain of a stillbirth this past week I am watching and cherishing those movements so much more. Bob's mom had a baby who died during delivery when Bob was in kindergarten, he still remembers the sadness that his mom went through for years after that. My heart goes out to anyone who has ever had to experience the loss of a child.
Thankful for: A gracious husband who knows what to do when I feel overwhelmed. Friends and sunshine. A long weekend (Its Victoria Day here in Canada), sleeping in and morning squeezes.
Wishing: 1. FINALLY finish painting upstairs 2. Finish Book - Keep Your Love On 3. Find and buy anniversary gift for hubs!
