Not blogging on a regular basis has left my mind racing. Isn't that weird? I sit awake at 2am nursing Mason and thinking of the things I'd like to share on my blog. That's pretty pathetic!
But since I have a few things to share and not much time to share them I'm lumping them all into the same post.
First, Mason. I am so in love with this little boy. I know it's normal for parents to love their kids but I think that I love him more than any other mommy has ever loved her little boy. I'm sure you'd all agree (wink.) He is growing up so fast...and he's barely a month and a half old. He's already grown out of his 3 month old Carter's sleepers! Yikes! I'm really trying to savor each moment with him since I am 99% sure he is my last little baby.
Second, rain. I'm thankful for it today. Yes, I really did say that. Most Del Nortians (is that what we would be called?) aren't ever thankful for the rain. We get so much of it that it's more like, "Oh no, the rain has started. Well, kiss that sun goodbye for the next 3 months because we won't be seeing it." But it's been cold here. And I mean cold. It has been about 27 degress on a regular basis taking Wyatt to the bus stop. Gavin worked in Gasquet this week and it was 19 degrees on Wednesday morning. For us, that's cold. Maybe even record breaking cold for our area. So with the rain comes warmer temperatures.
Third, leaf blowers. Layton loves any and all power equipment. How could he not? He's a little boy and daddy has a lot of it. He was helping in the yard blowing the maple leaves into a pile on a "yardwork Sunday afternoon."And lastly, even though it wasn't in the title post, a little gift that my SIL gave to me for my birthday that is now in bloom. It's so nice to have some fragrant blooming flowers in the home while everything outside is frozen!
