I usually have to wake Wells up when I head to work and to drop him off with my mom. But this week we didn't have to come in until 9am, so we got to sleep in a little more. It has felt great to catch a little bit more shut-eye, and I hope that this will continue into summer!
I seriously have learned so much since becoming a parent - with one of the most important lessons being that you have to just laugh at the crazy situations that your sweet little ones put you in. Case in point: While out to dinner with my parents Monday night, Wells had a little...ahem...mishap. You know the kind. The up-the-back, all-over-the-outfit kind of mishap. Since he was already wearing his "spare" outfit, we had no choice but to bring him out of the restroom in only his diaper (luckily this all happened at the end of dinner, so we were already about to leave). Here he is doing the walk of shame, covered only with a dinner napkin. Fellow Longhorn Steakhouse patrons may have been confused as to a) why my son was naked, and b) why it appeared we were stealing a cloth napkin (don't worry, we gave it to the hostess at the door).

A Sun-kissed Glow
Due to our daily walks as well as our frequent (albeit usually short, at least when it's just Wells and me by ourselves), trips to the neighborhood pool, my skin has gotten some much needed color. I always put sunscreen on Wells, but I only put it on me if we are going to be out for a while. I have slowly worked up a pretty nice little glow without even trying. Score.
I have mentioned that we love going to the neighborhood pool, but we also purchased a plastic kiddie pool the other day for the little ones to use at the Memorial Day cookout we hosted at our house. It was a hit with all the sweet babies! I filled it up Wednesday afternoon for Wells to play in, and he was pretty content to sit and play for about 30-45 minutes. Winning! This will be really nice to have on summer days when I don't feel like leaving the house. $10 well spent I'd say!

I know Father's Day is still a few weeks off, but I am really excited! Last year, Wells was two days old (the day we were discharged from the hospital, actually) on Father's Day. Honestly we were so busy and in love with our new little guy that it didn't feel much like Father's Day in the traditional sense. So, I am excited to get Eric a present and celebrate him being such a great Daddy to our boy. PS, I might have to make one of these bow tie cards, because seriously. How cute?
I hope you all enjoy your weekend!
