Nothing major to report on currently...just hoping to get through this week and enjoy some great family time this weekend when the Portland contingent comes in. Can't wait. In the meantime...
Here's a picture of Jacob when he fell asleep for the last visitation for my grandma...such an angel.
|If only they knew...|
And here's Jacob checking out the little fountain below the stairs. Perhaps he thought it was like the one at the Philadelphia Zoo. No wet clothes this time around, though!
And this really has nothing to do with Jacob, but this blog is about me as much as him, I suppose...so here's a picture I took of the flower I picked from the arrangement on top of the casket at the cemetery. It may not dry as well as a rose or a carnation, but I will always have this lovely picture to remember that flower by. I just love how it came out.
Finally, here's one from Craig's phone on the beach in Atlantic City. Jacob really wanted to play beach lacrosse, but I ended up vetoing it after balls got thrown a little to far for my liking (both for others' safety's sake and for my lack of desire to chase it down every 15 seconds on burning hot sand).
|And no, I have no idea how Jacob is standing there on burning hot sand.|

Otherwise, we're working on getting back to normal. Jacob is pretty much back to where he was pre-vacation with potty training. He wears big boy undies to daycare, usually makes it home dry, but seems to have a penchant for dribbling a bit. The plastic pants make that not an issue, but I don't know if he's dribbling because his body isn't ready yet or if he just doesn't get it. But it's manageable, if only because he's pooping in the potty 99% of the time.
The good news is that this week and next week are four-day weeks. Once we're past that, we'll be nearly at the end of the month, my birthday and labor day will come and go, and suddenly it'll be the end of summer. How is that possible? Insane. Until that happens, I'm going to go work on making work days speed by but evenings and weekends go nice and slow. Wish me luck...
