The Waning Days of Summer
We are still trying to keep our days filled and Little Man busy as the summer comes to a close. That has been difficult because I am not nearly as much fun as the beach, sand and waves were so I am still getting the repetitive plea of "go to beach house, mama!" It doesn't help that my creativity and energy are somewhat lacking so our art projects, usually more thought out and planned, seem to just end in a mess which leads to play time in the bathtub which means at least an hour of time filled up. The finger painting leads to making hand prints which on this fine day, led to making belly prints, which led to painting ourselves instead of the paper. Which of course led to "go in the house, arms in the air, don't touch anything and straight to the bathtub mister!!"
Peanut is all smiles and toothy grins these days. He does little baby crunches when you put him in a recline position and likes sitting up more and more. He is an eating machine and loves his nighttime bottle with Papa Bear. When he sees his bottle being warmed up he leans into Papa Bear and all but rips the bottle from his hands. He laughs at gross boy sounds reminding me that I am the lone female in a house of boys (also reminded of this when Little Man forgets to put the toilet seat down!) and loves to grab my face between his two pudgy hands and laugh out loud.
