I Love Thursday #147 – So Many Blessings
This is the 147th post of things we love for the week. We post these loves each Thursday along with LeeAnna on her blog at Not Afraid of Color. Several additional friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out. You will surely find something to inspire you.
Graduation drive-by. Never in all my born days did I think we’d be involved in a drive-by. Not that kind, though – no one got shot or harmed in any way. In fact, it was kind of fun and we rather teared up. This is the beginning of the line-up for the graduation congratulation party for Adrian. Long ago, Sue tutored his older brother A.J. and last Fall she tutored Adrian in our home. We got to know this wonderful young man and got to revisit with A.J. and his mom. A.J. has a girlfriend now (she’s pretty!) and mom did such a nice job raising her boys to be polite and respectful. A different type of graduation party for sure but one that I am thankful we got to participate in.
HAHAHAHAHA! Need I say more? Yes, this IS me. Stomp, stomp, stomp. And how could I possibly forget it anyway?!! I had it sitting right next to me on the car seat – all I had to do is pick it up. Soon, it will be a habit, right?! Twenty-one days to form a habit or something like that.
Colt is growing and learning so much each week. He is quite anxious to get his hands on the cell phone so he took his first selfie. As you will see, he is intently staring at the phone and gave daddy a few “why-don’t-you-just-give-it-to-me” screams. In other news, he can pose in the position of crawling but doesn’t quite yet understand how to put it all together. We all know it will not be long . . . and then, watch out! Colty just turned five months on Tuesday – how is that even possible?!! ♥ ♥
The dynamic duo was back in action this week and the box challenge is always a fun one. Is does look a bit like he’s going to kick in sister in the padded butt. I’m sure the thought never crossed his mind . . . right?! Then they decided to try on their new Toy Story jammies. I had to share the photo of Dominic giving Addison a back massage (never a push!) with his hair standing on end. That always makes us smile! Jesse and Woodie at your service – how can they help? Jesse wanted to make sure you knew she had a pretty red hat, too.
Addison couldn’t help but try on daddies slippers. Hmm, it seems she has a bit of growing to do before she can fill those slippers! Ahh, after a stressful day it sure feels good to stretch out on the couch and watch a little Sesame Street. Addison has her juice, a snack, and some sunglasses at the ready so she doesn’t have to move one bit. Finally, Dominic wanted to go hiking. He looks so little on the trail.
Sadly, late breaking new is that Dominic has a hairline fracture and has a cast on his right arm. Thankfully, he was a brave big boy in the clinic and was rewarded with a sucker which he enjoyed ALL BY HIMSELF. We were delighted to see that he picked red as his cast color instead of his favorite word lately, brown. Which might mean black depending on the day. Safely back at home, he was still able to play with the monkey balancing game. This morning, he was happily mopping up the spilled juice. Oh no, “buice” on the floor – we’d better get that up right away!
Distantly social instead of social distancing. Carole at From My Carolina Home shared this post on Sunday. I am going to make a huge effort to be distantly social going forward. I miss our friend, Carol, coming over for ‘stitching’ night even though we haven’t stitched anything in ages. We chat and laugh and catch up on the gossip. We can still do that and be distantly social. We will be having a special three-year-old’s birthday soon and will DS instead of SD. How about you? Can you be DS instead of SD? We need a meme for this, don’t you think?!
Wisconsin State Fair! Yeah, it was canceled this year but we could order cream puffs-to-go! They were even coming to a town near us so I pre-ordered a 3-pack and ‘volunteered’ Sue to pick them up. After all, she is ‘off’ this summer . . . doing nothing except playing with babies, watching required professional development videos, and doing a little EKG-strip-reading-studying for fun. An hour later – I think some unkind thoughts were directed in my direction – she had our box looking very similar to this. Y-u-m. Takes me right back to the days I used to visit State Fair with my dad. Thank you, Sue!
