It’s September? WHAT?? You guys, our August went by in a *blink* – can’t believe Daddy’s back in school today! Today is somewhat tame, but starting tomorrow, we have at least 3 places to be at any given moment – our September might be even more jam packed than our August was. Eek! So, um apologies to those people (Hi Aunt Deb! Hi Grammy Boo!) who missed my 19 month post, but since I’ll be 20 months tomorrow, I think that’s just a lost cause; we will hopefully have a 20 month milestone post soon, and maybe a 4 year one for Cole, too.
Cole’s 4 year well care visit was on Tuesday, and he had to get 3 vaccines, so he got a chocolate milkshake at lunch.
He shared his cheeseburger with me even though I didn’t get any needles.
We played outside in the afternoon.
I’m not sure what Cole was doing, but he was having fun!
It was a very long day.
Cole is still opening birthday presents – what a lucky guy!
4 kids 4 and under in one picture – you think you could do better? And, yes, this is our third zoo trip in a month. Who’s counting?
Cole and I have been to the zoo so often, he was practically narrating along with the monorail driver, and I was plotting our route on the map with Connor.
Lisa lifted Cole up to get a better view of the bugs in Jungle World.
Is Cole not the most adorable bumblebee you ever saw?
I kept up with Rio and the boys ALL day, and then crashed the second the stroller hit the parking lot.
This pic is for those who doubt our comfort while extended rear-facing. We’re fine.
It was Rosh Hashanah so Mommy and Daddy and Grammy Boo went to morning services, while Cole played in the babysitting room, and I hung out with Coach. Services ran long, so by the time we picked up a quick lunch and got ourselves together, we got to temple just as the Children’s Service was ending. That was okay, though, some of our friends had gone to the wrong place so they missed it, too, and Cole got permission from Rabbi Brian to run around and blow his shofar anyway. And THEN, we found a Goldilocks wig.
And Three Bears hats.
Cole, as a bear, blowing the shofar. This was maybe the happiest 20 minutes of my ENTIRE life, running around chasing the boys, ridiculous blonde ringlets bouncing.
So. Much. Fun.
Then this happened; on the way to Tashlich services, my diaper exploded, and Mommy had left the extras at Coach’s house. Whoops! The pharmacy was poorly stocked, which is how I wound up at the park in 2 size large swim diapers, one layered over the other. That was kind of a Mommy MacGyver moment.
These dashing guys in their dapper fedoras are Cole’s fellow bears, Ari and Kaleb.
It was such an exciting day, it kept me up! Do you see what time Mommy got to bed? Notice Daddy is fast asleep.
Mommy and Grammy Boo ran a bunch of errands on Saturday morning, and then we met up with some friends for lunch. Rachel and I are destined to be shopping buddies!
Mommy hit Payless HARD. There is a BoGo sale going on, and she scored these boots for $10. She WINS at life.
This week? Kind of rocked – it was crazy filled with fun and friends, and we’re headed into a fall that’s just as crazy! Whee!
