Happy Monday, y’all! Oh, and happy leap day! Leap years are so cool to me but it definitely threw me off today. I definitely had March 1st written at the top of my to-do list. Whoops! Remember about a month ago when I announced that my cousin is pregnant with twins? I had the pleasure of driving to her hometown this weekend and celebrating these sweet little babies by throwing her a shower! A few of her friends and I got together to host a brunch for this beautiful mommy-to-be and let me tell you, she looked amazing! She is now officially less than 2 months from her goal birth date so we are getting so excited to meet these two little angels!
Saturday night I had a kid-free dinner with two of my closest friends and it was so nice and a very needed break! I love spending time with friends and it dime a world of good to laugh with them. We had a great time and ate one delicious food which is always a bonus!
Sunday was finally a warmer day again and we spent the afternoon outside! We took the kids in the wagon down the street to a pond where there are geese and ducks. Hamp loved feeding he ducks and SR was not as into it as she was eating the bread we had packed for the ducks. Unfortunately, SR woke up from her nap running 101.2 degree fever. Hampton ran a fever last week for a couple of days but then it passed, so I’m hoping hers will do the same. It has been a little high for my liking and she has been out of it since then. It breaks my heart when they aren’t feeling well and my kids have been sick off and on for a month now. It has been so crazy. I am just really ready for everyone to be well in our house.
This weekend has definitely made me extremely excited for spring weather to arrive! Our spring season, much like our fall season, is unpredictable and is usually cut pretty short, but it is so pleasant while it lasts. I am a huge fan of the outdoors and feel so at peace when I am spending time outside. Whether it is in the woods, hiking with Ryan, going for a run or hanging out on the beat, I love being outside in the fresh air. I am sort of over all the winter cold, and I’m sure we will have another cold front before it warms up for good, but I am definitely ready to read on the back porch swing and take the kids on picnics or to the park without freezing!
Our babies are playing so well together lately and it makes my momma heart so happy to see them playing and getting along together. Hampton sang The Itsy Bitsy Spider to her in the car while she was crying and it made her start smiling and she even grabbed his hand. It was the most precious thing, ever. These moments are so precious and I am so thankful for them.
