Just a few from the phone. Finn turned a corner a month or two ago and is such a happier, sillier kid. In hindsight... it feels like his first 18 months were ruled by sleep and food. Now he's funny and goofy and so boy-y.... talking and growling and giggling the day away. Tonight he was awful. So there are exceptions. But this boy is fun.
Soccer started last week and while it's still MISERABLY hot and hanging at the field for TWO games is ... twice as long and miserable as one... it's pretty awesome. Watching Mila wear her uniform with such pride now that she's finally old enough to play, even if she does mostly just look at her feet and then over at us while the ball rolls by--- is amazing. And so entertaining. And watching Sophia go full-on athlete on the field-- flying past the other team and getting herself in the mix at every moment makes me so excited for the future (when she can also control the ball enough to have a say in where it ends up), especially because of how it started a few years ago. Oh my gosh that was fun.
Date nights are my favorite part of the week. I look forward to those few hours with Ross (and none of our darling, wonderful, captivating kids) like nothing else. Those hours with Ross-- and food I don't have to eat in between cleaning smoothie off the floor and replenishing waters.
Is October really right around the bend? Praying for double digit temps....
