and it seems the baby-proofing will forever be ongoing…behold the stairs of death that a certain little body has figured out how to climb.
And the lazy-man’s version of baby-proofing the kitchen… Growth chart, shmoth chart, we’ll just keep track of Summer’s height with the ever-rising level of fridge magnets
Early birthday presents happened. The balls are fantastic and fit perfectly when little hands roll them under the couches…
but the peek-a-boo holes are much more fun.
An investment in a video monitor happened. I love it but it has a creepy horror movie night vision quality which always makes it look like she’s just laying there with her eyes open. Momma no likey.
Hanging a baby swing from a tree in my front yard happened. It was the only tree that would work and I had to climb a ladder. In my front yard. I had to tie a double fisherman’s knot 2 feet above my head. I had to Google double fisherman’s knot. Have I mentioned that despite the fact that I once jumped out of a perfectly good airplane, I’m terrified of heights? I had my eyes closed the whole time I was tying.
But let me tell ya, I would climb the tallest ladder you could put me on knowing it could make her this happy.
A Cubs win happened.
A baptism happened, and my lovely was a perfect angel. And man did she rock that dress.
Summer and I are off to meet Kelle Hampton at her book signing tonight and I’m very excited to meet her in person and have my copy of Bloom signed.
Have a wonderful evening and may your night tonight be filled with lots of good dream happenings.
