Crazy to think that tomorrow is the halfway point for the month of February! We are flying through the month. Things have been good. Nothing too over the top crazy these days, just enjoying life. Owen’s nose stopped running for about a week and now the facet is back on. I know lots of kiddos have a off and on runny nose, but Owen hasn’t been that type of kid until now, so I’m adapting to this new snotty phase. Oh well. As long as he is well enough to go into the nursery at church, I’m cool. Here are some of the highlights of the month so far.
One of my favorite people in the world, Miss Jessica, came to visit for a few days after moving to Virginia this summer. I got to see her two nights in a row and I was in absolute heaven. However, I’ve been going through Jessica withdrawals ever since she left. I love this girl and it was fantastic to catch up with her in person about her very exciting life on the east coast.
Last weekend, we spent a day helping my sister and brother-in-law tidy up their new rental home. They will be moving tomorrow, but we wanted to make sure the house to was in tip-top shape before we got all their stuff inside. It was a fun day of being able to explore their new area and help set them up in their new space. Owen loved running around the empty rooms, especially the mud room.
One of my bigger projects this last week has been packing up Owen’s size 12 month clothes and pulling out the next sizes. Owen has been in 12 month clothes for over 5 months now. It’s exciting to have a change in the wardrobe especially as we move toward more spring type outfits, but at the same time, it’s always a little sad when I’m boxing up little shirts and pants. So many good memories in those clothes. He wore these through the holidays and through many adventures. It’s strange how attached to them I feel as I pack up the boxes. Yesterday, we went out and did some clothing shopping to fill in the gaps in his wardrobe. The best part was Owen joined us for the first store and then he spent the evening with Grandma & Grandpa. Jeremy and I shopped in Olympia with no kiddo. It was so much fun!!! Owen likes to roam the stores like a maniac or he wants to be held. Riding the cart isn’t his favorite thing (at least when I’m around, Jeremy says he does great in the cart if he and Owen are out on a daddy/son outing). Anyway, it was a fun treat to shop without Owen in the mix.
Tonight we have a Valentine’s Day dinner at church. Jeremy got roped into lip syncing and dancing to a Backstreet Boys song with the staff. I promise photos and videos of that to come! Tomorrow we move April and April into their new home so that will make for a big day and a not very romantic Valentine’s Day, but that is okay. We don’t usually make a fuss out Valentine’s Day anyway. Plus, spending Valentine’s Day with family, helping them move seems like a very loving thing to do. That’s the new news for now! I’m sure I’ll have lots of fun to share after this big holiday weekend!
