Currently, I am …

thinking about how fast this year is going. Dylan is already in his third full week of kindergarten. I just entered the 3rd trimester with this pregnancy. Only 3 more months (plus a tiny bit if she’s stubborn like her brother?) before we meet Baby Girl. And, no, we definitely do not have a name. Given we didn’t pick Dylan’s until he was 8 days late (he arrived 2 days later), I wouldn’t expect us to have her name picked until at least mid-October.

preparing for our family changes. Nesting has started to kick in a bit in the form of house projects in general, but also on the nursery. I found a changing table on Craigslist last week for $15. Structurally in great condition, but definitely had seen better times which was fine. I knew I wanted to paint whatever I bought. Lucky for me, her big brother has been happy to help. Soon we’ll have a beautiful new-to-us yellow changing table to match the dresser in her room.

reading The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty. I had read her book, What Alice Forgot, earlier in the year and enjoyed it so thought I would try this one. So far, I don’t want to put it down. And excited it’s my 20th “real” book (i.e., not a picture book!) this year. My goal is to read 30 books and it looks like I’ll accomplish that.

grateful┬áthat Dylan still enjoys books and snuggles at bedtime. He’s growing up so fast, but still little too. I know these days are numbered and I’ll soon have to split time between two kids so I’m enjoying them to the fullest.

enjoying regular after dinner game night with Trent & Dylan. It’s a fun, relaxing way to spend time just the 3 of us after busy days of work and school. One of our current favs was a birthday present he received – Cars 2 Monopoly.

looking forward to an outdoor movie at our neighborhood pool on Friday night. It was an idea another neighbor started a few weeks ago that looks like will continue monthly into the fall and is a great way to kick off the weekend.
