Callum and I had a super busy week last week. We had a planned activity every.single.day. which is nice to keep us on the move but seriously wears me out!
We started the week with a play date and then naps!
Callum and I have always napped together, but it's definitely getting harder to snuggle with him as he gets older. It's always special when he asks me to cuddle with me : )
On Tuesdays he goes to school . . . PRAISE HANDS!!! He only goes twice a week this summer, but it keeps him with his friends and teacher a little bit longer. He will be switching classes in a few weeks, and we're both going to miss this group of kids, parents, and his wonderful teacher : (
On Wednesday we met his best bud at the children's museum. It was a great morning (followed by a great nap, of course)!
This was our last class for the session so we wanted to see how much he actually learned before we signed him up again. We talked to him about what he needed to do in order to pass his level (and get a prize from the treasure chest), but I made up my mind that it was OK if he didn't pass. This was a good day for a life lesson : )

On Thursday he went back to school so I went to my 28-week appointment and headed to Fredericksburg for some errands. I try to use my child-free days wisely to prepare for 'lil brudder because he will be here in about 2 months!
We recently bought a used crib and rocker from an online yard sale site so I was on the hunt for a new crib mattress. I stopped first at Buy Buy Baby but decided to pass on the $300 crib mattress . . . holy crap!!!
My next stop was Target, and I not only bumped into a few of my favorite students (and a dear friend) but also found an inexpensive crib mattress that will work just fine . . . and maybe a few other things : )
I swear I walked around that store for 2 hours, and I was so thankful for my "third trimester shoes." I expect the swelling to hit any day now . . .
Jesse has much more experience with little boys and sleepover (naturally) so I backed off and let the two of them handle all the preparations. It was really cute to watch them pack up and talk about a few ground rules . . . I was just a little sad : (
When did my baby boy become this big boy?!?!?!?!
Our families kept texting to see if Callum was back home yet, but this kid spent the night with no issues. It was pretty nice because he was right next door if he needed us for anything.
This week will be much slower for us . . . we don't even have plans to view the solar eclipse . . . but I'm sure it will be a nice, relaxing week. Hopefully it won't be as hot!
Happy Monday friends!!!
