So much for my newfound resolve to post more often ... :)
We've been pretty busy this summer - I always think we won't be busy, and then we always are!
Right now, we're in the process of getting ready. My folks are coming this weekend to stay a week, plus Marky's first birthday party is this weekend, and I'm back in school now. After a fall in the shower last summer when I was very pregnant, we discovered that the wall behind the tiles in our shower was rotting out, so Matt's in the process of fixing that. He took the shower walls down to the studs, put up new cement board, and now is in the process of retiling. I think it's going to look nice! I just hope it'll look done by the time my folks get here Saturday. All of us in the teeny guest bathroom is ... excessive.
And yep, you read that right - Marky is a year old. I can't believe it. In some ways, it's gone super fast, and in some ways, super slow. He's a huge kid (we weighed him on our scale the other day, and he was 26 1/2 lbs ... we'll see what the dr's scales say next week), but still not walking. He's cruising, and starting to let go and stand up a teeny bit ... so I'd say he's still a few weeks off from walking. He's such a happy boy - every picture I have of him is a grinning picture, because he just always grins. He is definitely very physically active ... I have trouble keeping up with him sometimes! He LOVES to eat - right now, graham crackers are a new favorite. He's officially in 2T clothes now, but I suspect he'll be in 3T before too much longer here.
In case you're not on fb (or missed it on fb), here
's some pictures of his first year!
My classes are going pretty well - I'm at school most of Monday, but then I'm done for the rest of the week. Just a couple of basic introductory classes this semester. Next semester is a continuation of one of my classes, plus a social work research class. Ick. I'm not looking forward to the research class.
But, that's what's going on with us ... what's going on with you?
