Last weekend we had no plans and some time at home. It was so nice to hang out together and do all things summer on Saturday. It was such a fun little day for our family for no specific reason, but I want to remember this day for all the little things in particular..
Cartoons and snuggle time
Pool and swimming with 'my Daddy'
Friendly neighbors and many congratulations on the 'bump'
Lunch and monster bites
Cleaning out and working on the nursery
Chilly, breezy afternoon playing outside
Tyson dancing to country music (different from his hip hop dancing, of course)
Drawing with chalk - Tyson's specialty, drawing 'a cat'
Playing in the dirt - 'making hot dogs'
Riding on the tricycle with the neighbor boy
Tyson eating ALL his dinner, eating every last shell noodle. Directly from his plate.
Lots of counting to 10
The Mr. and I enjoying a late dinner of grilled pizza and a documentary (SOMM - official trailer - highly recommended, very interesting. We both really enjoyed this movie!!)
I can't help but reflect on these days, with just the three of us, especially as they dwindle down and we prepare for a new family member. I am overwhelmed with emotion as I can't imagine another besides Tyson. I want to remember every. little. thing. he does and says, as it's just the three of us. He is such a sweet kid and brings so much joy to every day. I know that won't change as we grow our family, but I always want him to know how special he is and how much he means to us and how much we treasure this time, this age. This perfect little simple, summer Saturday.
