Summer days | Mommy and Me Monday | 179th ed


It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information. Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.

It was full-time, no camps for the girls “mom mode” this week. I know many of you moms do that day in and day out, but we all enjoy a little camp time. So, we went to the library, did some “cooking” and tried to do something every day to get us out of the house…one day, a doctor appointment for E (she’s fine).

After I announced baby #4 last week, I thought it would be good to show that she/he is in fact growing, and at quite the rate (it gets bigger faster with every one!). Also, there is one little fussy toddler, whose world is about to be turned upside-down in the picture, too. Here’s the bump at 16 weeks. (and with E at 15 weeks for comparison).

Saturday afternoon, there was a pool party. And guess what? It rained. Just like it has almost every other day this entire sumer! So, we came home and got ready for bed. The girls asked to watch a movie, and shockingly, we said “yes!” I got some couch snuggles with N. And, when I tried to get a picture, she turned and smiled. Silly girl!

 Here’s to another week of “camp mom!” Hope your summers are going well. Have you counted the back-to-school countdown, yet? We have only two and a half weeks for the oldest!

Mommy and Me Monday at  Really, Are You Serious?

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love.  Please spread the love!  And, I never mind the comments, either:)
