*A photograph of each of my children, once a week in 2016*
Since I am behind a bit, I decided to combine a few weeks together. Blame it on my ridiculously busy and nonstop life lately. But I do have plenty photos of these kids, nonetheless.
The cul-de-sac has been awfully quiet this summer. We have had several families move and two of those families had boys Cohen often played with when they were out. A few kids were outside last Sunday and after four hours of hard playing, he came back in ready for dinner, dripping sweat. He has made some really great friends at school and I hope to be setting up some play dates here in the near future.
P.S. Did I mention this one will be six in less than a month?
Sweet Lola Girl had a heck of a stomach bug a few weekends ago. Then, the following week she topped it off with a major cold. But this one tugs at my heartstrings like something else and I'm a sucker for everything and anything she wants. The other night at dinner she looked at me and said, "Mom, do you love me?" My reply was, "Of course I do! To the moon and back!" She then said, "Okay Mom. Thanks." And that was that. If only life was that simple.
In less that a month I will no longer have a baby. Oh my Remy is such a sassy pants in so many ways. She is her own character and will greet any one of us with the best smile you have ever seen. Yet she still has a bit of stranger anxiety and will bury her head in my shoulder when she's unsure about the new person and situation. And if I take something away from her that she wants, oh Lord help us all.
