July In Pictures

There are times in your life that you just want to fast forward and get it over with. July was one of those times for many reasons, vacations are behind us and the only thing on our agendas was work. Over the past three years, this space has been a place for me to write through my feelings and ramble about my adorable son without the guilt of boring friends and strangers. The monotony of life didn't need to be chronicled, but now that this month is behind me, there seems to be plenty of highlights I don't want to forget.

Bennett named our neighbor his best friend. We spend several nights a week on his porch playing with cars and trucks, running through the sprinkler and riding bikes. Who knew we would find a little bit of Mayberry in 12 South?

Bennett was promoted to the big kid class, which offers plenty of  educational activities. There was the magician, the puppet truck, zoo animals stopped by for a visit and now he is bringing home legitimate works of art!

This month we also discovered Bennett has a minor food allergy. I think we've identified the artificial flavoring in Aunt Jemima as the culprit. The poor kid has suffered eczema since he was a wee one, but a few weeks ago, his poor eye got swollen and droopy. We might have to start tapping our own maple trees to save our kid from future ailments.

Good thing he started cooking his own meals. Only problem being "the micawave has no battwies."

A whole month deeper into summer and I only crossed off one of my summer bucket list items, the Southern Living Idea House. Even my pint size companion could enjoy the experience when he discovered that the art was comfortable enough to sit on!
