A long time away, but not forgotten

I haven't tried blogging in so long because, well frankly I don't know what I'm really doing when it comes to this. I feel like, it's a sort of diary that I can look back at one day, but also out there for anyone else to gaze at.
I also don't want to be a typical "mommy-blogger", there's much more to my life than just being a seemingly perfect muffin baking mom. I'll give this a whirl again, and try to capture days and events that I'd like to look back at one day, for myself, and anyone else who happens to drop by.

hurricane leo

Since Leo has started crawling a month ago, life has definitely gotten more....exciting. My once tidy living room has become a whirlwind of blocks, toy trucks & trains, and endless baby wipes that he rips out of the package with little baby laughs.
                                               at least someone is using my exercise ball.

While crawling, and now standing and walking around tables, chairs and the couch, is wonderful, I have found that I wasn't fully prepared as much as I thought I was. We baby proofed months ago, but had no idea exactly how "into" everything he would be. Hence the old chair, jumper and walker in front of the tv. We have not found a baby gate that fits around the tb stand yet. While the tv is strapped to the wall, it still makes me nervous have him joyfully pulling on the base while giving me smirks. He knows.

 Naps are a good thing. Also still a battle that he will fight until he's so sleepy his eyes cannot stay open.

today was a good day. And tomorrow we will hunt for baby gates.

a day at grandmas and a day not wasted

Leo and I headed over to my grandmas house today for an afternoon visit. I've always loved going over to her house. From her mac and cheese shag carpet to the way the entire house smells like her perfume.

It was a fun time. She laid out cheeses and different types of crackers. I am my grandmothers granddaughter, whenever I have company it is a must to lay out a few snacks, even if they go untouched.

After that, Leo and I headed home where Sean was waiting for us, sleeping. We let our hard working 3rd shifter sleep a while later, so we could play and explore the house he's known just 7 months.

I love simple days like today. No countless errands, no piles of laundry, dishes can wait. There's always tomorrow for all that, and if tomorrow it doesn't get done, well that's ok too.
