friday favorites

I've been a terrible blogger this month. And, truthfully, I'd apologize, but I don't feel bad about it! Life is for living, and these summer months are so short in Northern NY that I'm savoring every ounce of sunshine that I can. Being able to have Spencer outside and enjoy the beautiful weather is such a gift, and I certainly won't apologize for taking the time to soak it all in. Life is oh-so-sweet lately, and as I watch my little boy's personality grow by the day, I fall more and more in love with him. So, without further ado...five of my favorite things this sunny Friday:

one// Target's $4 special - the perfect itty bitty baby pool! We discarded our beautiful blow-up pool because it was too much of a hassle to clean and keep our grass happy. This little pool is Spencer-sized, and he just loves it.


two// Spending time in the aforementioned baby pool with my little peanut. (Have I mentioned how hot it's been - and humid?) Last week was deadly, and it looks like this next week will be something else, too. Be prepared for a lot more pool shots. 


three// Shopping cart covers! Spencer is getting bigger and more independent, and these shopping cart covers are a lifesaver. Almost everything goes straight into his little mouth these days, and the last thing I want is for him to be sucking on a commissary shopping cart handle. Added bonus? He's strapped in securely, and he loves it!


four// I've had some time lately with our amazing childcare team of Heidi and Sam to actually run and get some other things - besides work - done. Just this week, I managed to take the time and sew a crib blanket for a friend of mine...a hobby I thought I'd never be able to enjoy again. It was so therapeutic.


five// This boy. Simply put, he's the best thing that's ever happened to both Ryan and myself; our happiest little accident. I can't imagine life without him, and I love my husband even more because we have this tiny little man.


Linking up this week with Darci for Five on Friday this week.

  1. Aww, so cute in his pool! I'm sure you must be thrilled that he loves the water. Maybe he will be a swimmer too. :) Caleb went in a pool once but he didn't enjoy it. I'll have to get him a kiddy pool!
