Fourth of July weekend is almost here!
Dylan, Ada, Terry, Caleb, Caleb’s friend and I are all taking off tomorrow for my parents’ place in Fergus. It’s gonna be a great, family-fueled weekend on the lake! I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am ready to spend some time outside, relaxing and enjoying the summer. Somehow Summer started and forgot to tell me…I can’t believe it’s already July!! I guess that’s what happens when you “grow up” and get a “big kid job.”
Maybe I should rethink this growing up thing…
But maybe not. Because I am excited about our little Nellie So coming to join us! I know it’s a bit of a wait still, but that halfway mark is creeping up on us much faster than I expected. 🙂 And everytime that Dylan or I buy or change something in the house to ready for her, I am reminded that it’ll be sooner rather than later that she’ll finally be here in our arms.
Speaking of, Dylan bought Ada a “new” bed today at our alley neighbor’s garage sale. It’s a Lightening McQueen bed and I guess she’s quite taken with it. No news yet as to whether her first nap was successful in it or not. Hopefully she’ll take to it so that we can get her first big girl bed turned back into a crib for Miss Nellie. And if you’re wondering…we’re planning on putting the girls together in a room. I think we’ll probably wait and see what kind of sleeper this new little girl will be before throwing them together, but as soon as she’s sleeping through the night reliably, they’ll be room-sharing siblings.
In preparation for this I’ve already cleaned out most of the toys and books in Ada’s room and put them downstairs in the new playroom. We only keep her library books upstairs, a small toy chest of toys and a few stuffed animals that made it past the thrift store expunging day. Luckily she loves the new playroom and generally asks to go down there immediately after waking up, even before eating–and we all know that girl LOVES to eat.
Pictures will be coming soon. Some of the rearranged girls’ room, some of here and there and definitely some of the family weekend. I’ll be toting the new laptop and camera to Fergus will us so that I can keep up with all the excitement.
Have a safe and fun fourth of July friends!!
