Memorial Day Weekend | Part 1

Mikey took Friday off & we toted Solomon around (who remembers what it's like to only have one kid to tote around?!) to buy appliances for our new house! *Hooray!!* After appliance buying and a late lunch at Wa-Ho we bee-lined for the lake house. On Saturday we played in the water for H O U R S. Amos loved it. He wanted to jump in immediately upon arriving to the dock and had to be carried up the big hill begging for just "five more minutes" in the water. Seeing his face when he jumped to us, or when he'd been swimming unassisted (by us...but with his life jacket) made my mama heart want to explode. Seriously, I'm so proud of him that I may burst. Mel joined later in the weekend and filled us in on lots of details with her new house - can't wait until we're practically neighbors! Here's to the summer that's ahead!

Amos' favorite things | two and a half


Favorites at 2.5:
Color: red
Thing to do: play a "pe-nano" and sing (he hasn't played with his piano in months ... it's in storage...weird)
Very best friend: papa and mimi
Place to go: McDonalds, Chick-Fil-A and the mall
Food: bacon & watermelon (...what he had for breakfast) 
Drink: says Mountain Dew, but it's really milk
Show: Curious George, Tumble Leaf & Umizoomi
Thing in the entire world: fans 

What else do you love?: "Frisbees. I like backetsballs and frisbees...and soccer balls."
*You also love Gravitopia so very much and want to take Baby Wren there. You just told me so. (: 

Mooshka, you're so fun. I love stealing time with you when Solly Mack is sleeping and forcing you to "snugga" me on the couch. I have so very much enjoyed watching you as a big brother. At 2.5 you're fun and spunky. You LOVE to be outside more than anything. You are super articulate - and becoming more so every single day. We talk about fans (any kind you can imagine) a lot. You sing James Taylor's "something in the way she moves" to me and have promised that you'll dance with me to it at your wedding. I love being home with you (and Solomon, of course) and am super thankful that I get to be your mama! I can't wait to see what the summer holds for us sweet Amos!
