Hi! It’s July! Here’s what’s currently going on in my life.
Current fun Spending time with family. I went over my parents’ house for the day last week and it was great to just hang out and enjoy their company. Over the weekend, Jimmy’s siblings, their significant others, and my mother-in-law came over for a cookout. Jimmy’s sister brought a ball pit and we all had just as much fun as Sadie did with that!
Currently feeling Busy and blessed. I mentioned in my last currently post that I was exploring a new career opportunity. Well, I decided to go for it! It requires some schooling, so I’ve been hitting the books. This is left little time for blogging, but I’m doing my best to manage it all :). Along with feeling busy, I’m feeling so incredibly blessed. With the career opportunity, this joyful season, and so much more.
Current laugh Sadie has been waking up crying in the night (#teethinglife) and I’m just so tired that I climb into her crib with her until she falls back asleep.
Current blessing The moms group at our church. It’s so refreshing to get out and spend time with other moms while we study the Word of God.
Current craving I really want to take Sadie to Idlewild (a local-ish children’s amusement park) this summer! I’m hoping I can convince my parents to come with us. I think it would be such a fun day 🙂
Current joy Sadie! Man is she fun and silly and just so cool. By the end of the day, I am equal parts worn out and smiling from ear to ear over the fact that God made Jimmy and I her mom and dad.
Current food Salmon. My favorite part is the skin. I love when it gets nice and crispy on the grill. Jimmy thinks it’s totally gross, so I gladly eat his salmon skin for him 🙂
Current baked good Smitten Kitchen’s Brownie Rollout Cookies. The only tweak I make to them is to brown the butter.
Current goal Working on getting Sadie to swallow solid foods. She’s been having solid food since she was six months, but it seems like she spits everything out. The main thing I’ve seen her reliably swallow is yogurt, and that is even a struggle. Maybe it’s just something she needs to get used to and keep practicing? Other parents… do you have any experience/advice in this area?!
Current excitement Shark Week starts this month!!! I think I need to watch Sharknado to get myself pumped up (as if I could be any more excited, lol!)!
