Oh for goodness, would you look at that sweet baby bum + squishy lips? Sorry Maxwell. Actually, sorry I’m not sorry! ;) Maxwell is such a dream baby. Even our friends tell me that, even our neighbor friends that come over at random and sit for tea for just a quick minute. It’s true: he is such a gift, such a dream baby. We’re slowly working on napping in the crib instead of the swing. [Maxwell is working on that, not me.]
But overall, everything is moving along just beautifully. Bauer has really calmed down a lot. He’s still very curious about Max although most of the time he just ignores him. The other day I caught Bauer laying on Max’s activity mat, chewing his bone ;)
I’m slowly realizing I have a problem with stripes. It’s a s l o w realization. Who can argue with stripes? They’re fun, they’re colorful, they are the most common print inside my closet. And I see I’ve passed this down to my son… oops! The other day I was chatting with Max while sewing up a sample and the next time I peeked over he was taking a little snooze. SO CUTE! As you can see Maxwell and Mr. Bunny are still the best of pals :)
My mom has been requesting more photos of Bauer, so I better deliver! Her last visit here, which was actually just a week ago, she said she wasn’t sure if we still had Bauer since I never talk about him. That made me so sad! Bauer has been so so good with Max. His very favorite thing to do is observe what’s going on. He likes to give Max’s toes a few good licks, he’s always quick to run to the kitchen when I make a “darn, I dropped something on the floor” sound. Clearly Bauer’s memory is great; mine is still terrible. He remembers plain as day that while I was pregnant that he became my substitute vacuum anytime I dropped a treat on the floor.
Please note the dramatic paw poses…
[Bauer, we love you so much!!!!! Remember when we brought you home?]
Life around the Whitley home has been super steady. Lots of play time with Max, walks with the boys, flower gazing in our neighborhood. We have the best neighbors and we have the loveliest chats with them. Earlier this week I took my first nap since our families left after helping out for 5 weeks. Oh my goodness, it was basically the best nap of my life. The weather has been simply gorgeous and there have been these exotic sounding birds singing all day + night, they are the best white noise when you’re trying to fall asleep. Max has been helping me package up some Gussy goodies to friends and pick out fabric for Gussy Club shipments.
Here I am wearing stripes again…
Ohhhhh, and I almost forgot. I’m working on a special project and just to tease you here’s a photo of what I’m working on:
;D more details coming soon!
So, that’s my recap of life these days. How about you? What’s going on? What are your weekend plans? Anything in the works for the Forth of July? And tell me, when is the last time you took a nap? Please say it was recently, naps really should be mandatory. xo
