I: Ice, ice, baby

Dear Maya,

The weather this past week was all over the place--really nice early on, too cold for June in the middle, downright hot over the weekend, and now here mommy is writing this post to the sound of strong wind gusts and rain outside and it's kind of chilly again. When is summer going to start in earnest??

We celebrated your Aunt Kelsie and Aunt Bobbie's birthday on Tuesday. You took a nice long nap so mommy was able to get the food prepared and house decorated in a snap. You really enjoyed the chocolate cupcakes (surprise, surprise) and getting to see Baby Grace.

The next day we went over to see Baby Grace again so mommy could take her one-month photos. As always, you were more interested in her toys than in playing with her, but when you did finally go over and look at her for a few minutes it was so sweet--until she started to cry in your face.

As mommy had suspected in the last post, it was pretty easy for you to remember the letter "I" this week. On hot days you had ice pops and got to draw on your Aquadoodle sheet with an ice cube instead of water. On cool and wet days we did lots of reading, coloring, and drawing.


Over the weekend we had a play date with Wyatt and his friend. You loved jumping in the balls on the trampoline, playing in the big and small kiddy pools, and throwing water balloons with the big boys. In the course of a few hours there you also managed to eat about 5 slices of watermelon!

When we got home, mommy looked out the window and noticed a really big turtle in the yard. We all went outside to look at it and saw that it was a really strong-looking snapping turtle. Daddy managed to get him onto a snow shovel and drag him far away to a safer spot. Yeah, daddy!

Looking forward to another week full of laughs with you, sweetie. Love you!
