Here's a summary of what we've been up to...
15 minutes (give or take) down the road is a park my children lovingly refer to as the, "Castle Park!"
Mia and Eliza
Cool news continued: the Chamberlain Chicks live in the same neighborhood.
These melt my heart.
It's rare when I capture I genuine Lottie smile.
As for cousin Sara, she's a star!
Soccer season is in full swing. The best part, so far, has been attending Eliza's practices. Henry and Lottie are free to roam the playground, while Forrest and I walk the track or visit with other "soccer Moms."
"Do you want to sit in the stroller with Forrest while Mama walks the track until you feel better?" I suggest. With crocodile tears falling down her cheek, she nods her head in agreement. Less than thirty seconds later, she takes a look at her hand and the sob fest resumes. As fast I can, I make it around the track as her tearful serenade (tantrum) continues.
Bandaids, really and truly, are magic. Despite my frustration, I had to smile at how her mood INSTANTLY shifted when that bandaid was applied to her small, but seemingly significant, injury.
Lottie and Forrest were also treated to a morning at the mall. I rarely frequent the mall, so we had to make the most of it with a visit to the kid playland. It was gratifying watching Forrest has his fill of fun for once!
Be patient sweet babe. Please let me keep you to myself for now. In a blink, you'll be apart of their crew full time. (*GIANT SOB*).
