As far as I’m concerned, one of the most important things we can do to get ready for this baby is not spend all of our time and energy getting ready for the baby. Babies come when they come and they truly need very little to be comfy, cozy, and well-cared for.
Our other four children? They need a mom and dad who aren’t exhausted and worried about the never-ending to-do list. They need to have some fun! And so we have.
Tonight? Our annual trip to the county carnival.
Such a good big sister to hop on a kiddie ride with the little dude.
Pretty sure this was taken right before he let go with one hand to wave. Crazy kid.
Couldn’t find this one for a while. No worries, it’s a small carnival and we knew several families there, but still… went to look for him, and had to look up! By himself?! I yelled, “I would have gone with you!” and he just shook his head, “No!” and waved his arms. Apparently, somebody is quite independent, thankyouverymuch.
I’m not freaking out. I’m not freaking out. I’m not freaking out. “Sit still! Don’t lean over! Don’t move that bar! Don’t rock back!” Guess I’m not as brave as I was years ago…
Speaking of brave… who needs a roller coaster partner? Not this one! After this I caught her on the ferris wheel by herself!
Melt a mama’s heart.
