Y’all, where did April go? This month has flown by. It’s the end of the school year, so things are crazy at work right now and we’ve been equally busy at home, so there hasn’t been much time for me to try new recipes lately, but I wanted to show you what we have been up to!
This month started with Easter. Jeff had to work, so Jack and I went to my parents’ house to spend the day with them. We went to church with my grandparents at Springfield (the church where I grew up) and got to see lots of old family friends that we don’t see often. Jack really enjoyed all the attention he got and he loved playing with the tissue paper in the present Mamaw and Papaw got for him.
Jack learned to pull up a few days after Easter and has been constantly pulling up on everything and experimenting with letting go of his support every now and then. He especially loves to pull up in his crib and pack-n-play. He’s very proud of himself when he does it and always laughs and grins so big.
Despite the fact that Jack had a bad ear infection this month, we were able to do some fun stuff with him on the weekends. We spent one Saturday in Calera at the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum’s Day out with Thomas. We met Jeff’s mom, sister and brother-in-law, and nephew there and spent the morning and early afternoon doing all kinds of fun activities. Jack loved the train ride and watching all the big kids do the activities. He’ll be old enough to really enjoy it big time next year.
Last week, Jack had his 9 month check up. I took the day off to take him, and once we got finished at the doctor’s office, we met Jeff for lunch and then went home and played. It made me even more ready for school to hurry up and get out so that I can spend more time with Jack. I can’t wait for this summer when we’ll be able to do all sorts of fun stuff while I’m off work.
This weekend, we spent Saturday with my mom and made sugar cookies for Jack’s teachers. They turned out really cute! I think they’re going to enjoy them. Mama and Daddy put up a swing for Jack on their front porch, so I got to see him swing, which he loves. On Sunday, we spent the entire afternoon in town after church and Jack loved getting to be outside. He kicked back in his stroller and had the best time while Jeff and I had a late lunch outside at Billy’s Sports Grill in downtown Northport.
April was fun! Now we’re ready for May, the end of school, and some fun summertime adventures!
