Linking up with Jen for another 7 Quick Takes!
Alright sickness, seriously, it’s time to leave. I want to breathe again!
Nate bought a bike last week so now our bike obsessed child is even more obsessed. I think it’s about time to get him his own. We were looking in Target the other day and of course this is what he picked out… Probably not ready for that yet bud!
We saw the midwife on Wednesday and got to hear the baby’s heartbeat. Everything is still looking good. She seemed oddly impressed by the size of my uterus so I’m a little worried we’re going to find two of them floating in there next month. I should have asked her to try and find another heartbeat with the Doppler but I was scared and ignorance is bliss!
Damian had a full developmental evaluation done today to “help” us keep our Medicaid. Good news is the kid did REALLY well. She kept telling me how smart he was. Bad news is… we will probably be losing Medicaid. I guess it’s good we don’t need it, but it’s really nice having something cover all those medical bills for us!
I have been missing Charleston like crazy recently. This always happens the second it gets warm though and, for the most part, continues until winter hits when I “hate” everything. So I guess this isn’t really a new development. However, we’re going to spend almost most a week at our family beach house very soon, and I.CANNOT.WAIT!!!! All I want to do is
sit chase Damian on the beach, eat seafood (that’s a picture of shrimp and grits above,) and soak up some sun and salty air! I have the best memories from childhood on the beach, so I want Damian to have those too.
Damian and I went to Barnes and Noble for the first time this week. (Don’t judge, normally I take him to the library or our local children’s book store. I promise I haven’t been depriving him of books and stories.) Anyway, the children’s section at ours is amazing! Who knew!? And the toy section they have is great. They are all educational and creative. It was such a breath of fresh air in comparison to Target which is normally where we ‘look at toys.’ Toys, by the way, live at stores and are just for children to look at and dream about. We can’t buy toys like we can buy books. Or at least this is what I’m telling Damian for as long as he will believe me.
The last thing I thought I’d share is a little bit of what my phone looks like after I find that Damian has stolen it. Since my quick takes are usually just me reviewing my iPhone photos from the week, I wanted you to see what I have to scroll through. I probably have at least 100 pictures of the top of his head and curls. And I can’t delete them because I’m a mom, and these things make me melt…
