I’m sure all of you stay at home moms out there will completely understand the feeling when your partner finally comes home at the end off the day. We are ALL always very excited when Eric gets home from work, and in the evenings Dad often trumps Mom (as you can see!)
I decided to try to do something fun out of the house one day when Archer was home from daycare. I thought since he is really into dinosaurs right now we would check out Stones N Bones in Sarnia, then have a picnic in the park for lunch. For the record, I was pretty impressed with myself for giving this a go – it was pretty ambitious with both boys on my own. As it turns out, Archer did not care for the museum, and it was much too cold and windy in Sarnia for a picnic. So, we came home and had a picnic in our living room! And because I don’t always have these fun ideas (or the care-free attitude to eat on a white blanket in the living room), I propped my camera up on a chair, grabbed my remote and hopped in the frame.
Archer loves to go wake Gryffin up from his nap, sometimes he sneaks in the room quietly and uses his best baby talk to wake him up, and other times it goes a little more like “raawwrr long-neck eat your head!” …
I finally remembered to take a more appropriate lens to Archer’s lacrosse, and even though it’s still not ideal, I had fun finding a big enough hole in the mesh to fit my lens into. #noshame
Gryffin and I tagged along for a little field trip to Greenview Aviaries with Archer’s daycare and we had a lot of fun. There were 3 daycares there all together, and ohmygawd those women are saints. Those kids are busy! Archer absolutely loves Kylie, and we are so lucky to have him in such a great home daycare, something I appreciate even more after spending the day with all of those toddlers! All of the kids with the daycare left early afternoon at the same time as all of the school groups, so we were suddenly almost alone in the zoo that was PACKED all day. We took advantage of the emptiness and took our time leaving.
Who cares about the monkeys, look how I can fill my shoes with stones!
For the record, there is a reason these are only for children. I could barely walk coming off of this thing! But after seeing a few friends play with slow shutter speeds, I had to give it a try.
And a few more of my boys to finish off the week. I can’t believe how fast Gryffin is growing. It is hard to believe he has only been here for 8 weeks. In some ways it is like he has always been here, and yet I can’t believe he is already 2 months old. He is officially full of smiles – especially for Daddy and Archer. He currently hates tummy time, still nurses non-stop, and is sleeping well. I am one happy Mama!
Phew, that was a heavy week! Thanks for stopping by!
