This summer, I didn’t spend any time in my bikini working on my tan and I didn’t have any mornings feelings like I drank a little too much the night before. I didn’t see very much of my friends or spend one lazy afternoon with a book. I opted for an early bedtime over enjoying the fireworks on the Fourth of July and I declined several invitations to picnics in the park, pool parties and barbeques. I didn’t see a single summer movie blockbuster at the theater and I avoided all the summer sales at the mall.
Instead, I spent my summer washing bottles, changing diapers, writing thank you notes, taking more photos than any previous summer, trying to figure out how to fold a stroller, carry a car seat without pulling out my back and learning how to wrap the perfect swaddle. I spent the summer of 2009 getting to know you.
You are 108 days old today and sadly our first season together is over. Thank you making it one of my best ones ever. I’m ready for fall!
The best is yet to be.
