Pools , Playdates , and "Poccles"

Seriously, how is it already mid-August?  When you live in Massachusetts, you live for the summer months of June-August because, come September, the weather will be starting to cool down and Fall will be making it's appearance.  I was so anxious for summer this year after surviving our first winter in MA.  And while I'm thrilled in some ways that August is here (currently 38 weeks pregnant and waiting on baby girl #2!), I also feel like the summer has just slipped on by and I'm just now trying to play catch up and enjoy it!

It's probably because, well first of all, we moved at the end of May and I'm just now feeling like we are finally moved into the new house.  Then the entire month of June, Ryan was in a long-leg cast and so our summer activities were limited and then the majority of July, my Mom was out here helping me due to some pre-term pregnancy related issues so we spent a lot of time getting things ready for baby.  Annnnnd, Josh was on nights the whole month which really throws off our days and activities.  However, the last few weeks, Ryan and I have been taking some serious advantage of the warm weather.

We've had playdates, gone to the lake, made trips to Davis Farmland, and spent lots of afternoons in the backyard baby pool or swing complete with "poccles" in hand (both her and I).

We spend a lot of our days outdoors which is just as it should be because I know come November or so, I'll be wishing for these warm sunny days back!

Ry also had her two year check-up and continues to be a happy and healthy little girl at 29.2 lbs and 34 inches tall.  She is still using a bottle before bedtime and nap time, but we did successfully transition her into a regular bed so that her Sissy can have the crib this past month so I'll focus on our successes rather than the things we still need to work on.  Like potty training...cough cough.

As for Sissy-no-name, she is still cooking at 38+ weeks!  Her cousin Austin James decided to make his debut at 37 weeks exactly and we are a tad jealous over here.  However, I'm just trying to soak up these last few solo days with Ryan since I know it is going to drastically change very soon.  I'd like to think she has an idea of what's coming (heck! I don't even know what's coming), but there's no way she gets it.  So I'm soaking up her sweet snuggles and kisses and waiting for the day when I have two girls to cuddle with!
