Wow, I’ve been quite the slacker in the blog posts recently, haven’t I? Honestly, daily life has taken over, and little time has been left for myself recently. But I’m taking what time I can get today to show off some of the fun we’ve had over the past couple of weeks.
Cooper and Mason got a new toy from Kristin. It’s a huge hit! Literally huge too… it can knock Cooper down in one fell swoop. But then again, Cooper spends more time on the ground than he does standing up. I’m still trying to figure that one out. He’s very coordinated, but somehow gravity keeps pulling him down.
Mason and Luka have been enjoying their last days as “sisters” together. Once school ends on June 16th, Luka will no longer be spending the afternoons with us. I have a feeling Mason will enjoy the solitude for the first week or so, but then the reality will set in that she doesn’t have a playmate and is relegated to hanging out with Mommy who often has to work. We’ll have to set up regular playdates with Luka and her brother so we can get our fix.
Cooper’s life has been changed by sports recently. First of all, let me say that this kid is a sports fanatic. We have every type of ball known to man, and he knows the name of many sports. I think that’s a separate post all on its own, though. The Cooper Chronicles or something…
But last week this “stick” was put in his hands, and everything changed. (Daddy is so proud!)
And finally, most recently, we celebrated Mother’s Day! The cold and windy weather forced us to change our plans of a picnic and paddleboat rides, but we made the best out of it and had a wonderful day. Meema, Nana, Papa and Kristin all came over to our house to celebrate. We had a delicious meal, as always, and enjoyed some fun outside time. It’s always a special day when we can all get together.
I’m honored to be the mother of Mason and Cooper. May they continue to look at me with the love and adoration they’ve shown me over the past 4 and a half years. They can always put a smile on my face and joy in my heart.
