Oh summer. How I longed for you! I couldn’t wait to have entire days filled of adventures with William. And while I’m definitely loving and soaking up all this time with my little man, we have GOT to stay busy! I am so not somebody who can stay in the house all day, not even all morning actually. Everyday we find new activities to do, both in and out of the house. We’ve had lots and lots of play dates. The past two days we’ve had the pleasure of hanging out with Brittany and her two sweet kids! On Monday we went to a pool and yesterday they came over.
William had a blast! He was obsessed with this precious little girl. He wanted to hold her constantly! He’s been interested in babies in the past, but never for more than a few minutes. He sang to her, rocked her, kissed her, patted her, literally wouldn’t leave her alone! It was pretty stinking cute. They’re going to have to make more regular visits. Catching up with Brittany was great, too. She’s one of those down to earth, tell it how it is kind of gals with a heart of gold and the kindest soul.
After they left, William was more than ready for a nap. He took a decent nap, but was still pretty tired when he woke up.
Once he fully woke up, we played a bit more before heading to Yaya and Pops’ house. William asks everyday if we can go to Yaya and Pops’ house. He certainly loves them – definitely the very best grandparents (and parents!).
Summer in St. Louis has officially begun; this means hot and humid weather! Pops was watering the yard, and William just loves to help. Pops taught him how to spray with a hose.
After they played with the water, we went back to the pond. Everyday, William pretends to go fishing at our house. He has a cute magnetic fishing set that he plays with and he also pretends long sticks outside are fishing poles. So you can imagine his excitement when he and Pops actually caught a fish!
Once everyone had enough sun, we went inside. William ate a snack while Yaya read to him and then they played with all the exciting toys at their house. William challenged Yaya to an air hockey match.
Miraculously, he scored against Yaya probably a hundred times. Then he made Yaya switch sides with him another hundred times. Yaya is a very good sport.
We came home, took another walk, ate dinner, bathed, read books, and then it was time for bed. William had to get in a quick cuddle session with Zoey first.
We were all exhausted after our long day!
