It’s been so busy around here. Baby raising is hard work, I tell ya! And keeping the house clean and dinner on the table… whew! I need a raise. Playing and learning everything there is to know about the world is a lot of work!
Kalvin is getting so big. He will be nine months next week! Where did my baby go? Seriously, it’s so sad to think about him growing up so fast. I’m just going to stop thinking about it now because if I dwell on it for too long, I get teary. It all just happens so quickly and what precious moments we are so lucky to be experiencing! Hence, the reason for my absence. It’s very hard to make time to do things (like blog) when we are so busy living our lives!
I want to come back to this, though. I do miss it a little bit. It just feels like I’m outgrowing this blog. Maybe a new one will be coming soon? Those are two things I should be making time for: exercising and blogging. We will see how good I am at making that happen.
Anyway, here is a quick picture of my baby boy on Valentine’s Day. He (and his daddy) are the loves of my life. Daddy was working at the time we took these pictures, so he didn’t get the lipstick smooches. Maybe next time.
Kyle and I went on a lame date on Valentine’s evening while my parents watched Kalvin. Seriously, it was super lame. We picked up our car from the mechanic in Ankeny and then we went to Tasty Taco. Then we contemplated walking around Menards (to scope out materials for our next home project)– but instead we got ice cream and listened to music in the parking lot. I offered to drive around until we could find the make-out spot in Ankeny, but nope. Ice cream sounded like a better idea, so that’s what we did instead. :)
Kyle and I used to be awesome at date night. And every now and again, we come up with some awesome things to do together as a two-some. (My birthday is coming up and I have some good ideas for that!) But really, this family life is so much more fun enjoyed together, and Kalvin is the coolest kid ever. So it’s fun to include him in on the fun, you know?
