The week started with a Sunday evening family walk... to the local ice cream shop :) It was a beautiful and warm night, and we all liked getting out of the house and ending the weekend on such a sweet note (pun intended:)
The week was also a good one - Jacob and I spent a LOT of time outside (two two-hour walks on Thursday!) enjoying the fresh air and beautiful weather. We even went to the Brookfield Zoo on Friday afternoon with a few Special relatives.
The weekend was a GLORIOUS one. We started it with going out to brunch and getting a car wash. When we got home, we worked on tackling the endless to-do list. I sorted through all of Jacob's clothes, and packed away his too-small newborn items (sob). I took out his 3-6 month size gear, and washed it all. I deep-cleaned the inside of our house, and Scott tackled the outside. (Jacob cooperated by taking a 90-minute nap - score). We ended Saturday by taking a family walk - it was 72 degrees at 8pm! Sunday was spent running errands as a family, spending time working outside, and a visit from the Maloneys (which included a bath for Jacob and a cold Summer Shandy for me). On Memorial Day Monday we traveled to Grayslake to visit my dear friend Sam and her sweet family. She has a son who is seven months older than Jacob, and it was amazing to see how much development happens during that time.
Man, I love summer.
