Now in recent news, we went to the Raspberry Festival in Lynden on Saturday. It was our first event that we could go out as a family. It was really FUN with Enoch there--even though he slept the whole time. We are starting to see how fun simple outings are more delightful for us when we have a baby to bring along and share the experience. (We wouldn't have stayed as long as we did without him.) Below is a picture of a muscle car Shaun liked--it was the closest to his real dream man car. I can't say I share in his passion for this car--but I do appreciate his taste and that his choice reflects a young speed thing--as opposed to the black car I added--which seems weird and out of place to me.Then on Monday, July 20th, I celebrated a low-key 26th birthday on Monday. My friend Alicia was the first to surprise me that morning when I opened my e-mail and saw that she had ordered me a fake diamond ring to hold the place of my wedding ring (as I lost it at the hospital) from Amazon.com. It was very sweet of her. Then, I was surprised again by Shaun who came home early with a pretty little blue box from Harry Richie's Jewelers. YEP....he bought me a real ring for my birthday. You see, I had a fake Dimonique wedding ring since we couldn't afford a real ring when we got married. When I lost my $40-70 ring at the hospital, that was a catalyst for Shaun to activate his man ring choosing power. He did a great job and got me something like what I had before--but with real diamonds! Thanks Shaun! You did a great job. I love that it's flat and feminine--and won't cut our baby when I hold him! Thank you also to those who sent me warm birthday wishes. I really appreciated those!
Also, my jogger arrived Tuesday and it's awesome! Now that we have air in the tires, we took Enoch out for a walk yesterday evening. He fell asleep and seems to favor the bump terrain over smooth pavement. (Teri tells me this is a boy thing.:))
Other than that, life is rolling along. Enoch and I are enjoying our summer days and nights together. We LOVE having daddy home in the evening to hang out with. (Shaun always comes home--finds Enoch and says hello--it's so sweet.)
And--how can I post without a new shot of Enoch? Here's him oddly placed by Shaun in his swing. It's adorable!!!! (Don't worry, we were watching him in the living room and made sure he was breathing and okay while laying on his side/tummy like this.)That's all for now!
