Oh Sweet, Sweet Summer!

Today is my first official day of Summer break and it has been wonderful!

I skipped my 4:30am wake up call and slept in until B woke up at 7:30!! I love mornings with Bryson; he is so happy and lovey.
We had a pretty busy day of running errands.

We took Orion to the vet, came home for B's nap, went to Babies R Us and Target, came home to have lunch with Michael, B took  nap and I made some baby food. We read a lot of books, sang songs, sat up and played with toys, and had so so much fun! I loooved being home with him. :) 

So, like I mentioned, I made some baby food today. We haven't given him any solids yet, but since I'm home, I figured I'd go ahead and start. We'll probably start after his 6 month appointment. I'll be honest, I got a bit emotional making the food. I can't believe he's growing up so fast and I can't believe he's getting to where he needs more than just milk. I'm really excited about making his food though :) I decided to make sweet potatoes first, and boy did I make some sweet potatoes!! I didn't realize it would make so much. Sure hope he likes sweet potatoes! Ha!

Bryson LOVES mirrors. He gets so happy when he sees a "friend" across from him. Well, I put a mirror on the floor with Bryson today and he went nuts!! He's been scooting across the floor for a while now, but with the mirror down there, he was dying to get across the room! SO cute!!

I had so much fun with my sweet boy today; I'm so excited about the rest of Summer break!!


  1. I love the mirror pictures and that last picture of Bryson. He is so adorable!!

    Yay for making baby food! It is so much cheaper to do it that way. I hope he loves sweet potatoes. :)

  2. Oh yay! I am so glad that you two are having so much fun! I absolutely love his mirror pics. I used to do that with the puppies... except now tobs would probably be scared. Ha! Anyway have such a great one and I swear he keeps looking like a little man each time I see him! Love the Sweet Potatoes. I hope mama and dada like them too since you have such a fun amount:)

  3. Does this mean more blog updates, more often too? I hope so! Bryson is getting so big and animated. Its been really fun watching him grow through the pics on here. I hope you enjoy all your time off with your cute lil baby boy!! I bet Michael is jealous.

  4. I know you are sooo enjoying every minute with that sweet baby! Happy summer!

  5. Yay.....summer!!!

    I'm so excited for you getting a DSLR camera. You'll love it!! What kind are you getting?? I totally recommend a Canon, because that's what I have but they don't sell them at Wolf Camera any. They just sell Nikon, Olympus and Sony DSLR's. I would recommend finding a camera at Wolf that you like, because when you buy your camera there, you get free lesson with the camera. I took the lessons (or classes) and I actually learned alot. DSLR cameras can be pretty confusing. Using Auto takes great pictures and it really easy to learn, but if you want to take really great pictures, you have to learn all the ins and outs of your camera!!! Let me know if you have any questions. I'd be happy to help!!!
