A Great Week

We had another typical week here at the Slocum house :). We enjoyed laughing, playing, napping, and just

Jefferson was a bit unusual this week. Can you believe this cute face would only want held when he was awake? Yes, Mommy was shocked as well!

Jefferson prefers to keep his legs in a standing position so giving him baths is rather interesting. I decided we needed some extra sitting practice since I was sprayed with an unpleasant fountain almost the entire bath time since someone was screaming and standing in the water :). Anyone that has a boy knows what I mean!

Jewell of course had to get in a picture :). I love this smile! It's her new favorite thing.

It's been raining a ton here in Oregon. Earlier this week we were at 127% for our rainfall. The drought definitely has not started yet! Since it was so nice out yesterday I decided to venture out for a walk. My back was really hurting, so I decided not to put Jeffers in the sling or carrier. I got out the double stroller. It was a huge success. Jewell loved her special cup holder! Jefferson you can see from the picture below, tolerated it. I did learn one lesson from the experience of pushing the double stroller, I'm going to have killer legs for sure.

Yesterday afternoon I decided to introduce Jewell to Play-doh. She did great, until she ate it. I didn't even catch her eating it until I snapped the last picture! Oops! Bad Mommy!

I had a great week with the kids! However, I believe my favorite part, was my evening runs. Yes, I was finally able to sneak that in. I have learned to have dinner cleaned up rather quickly. After I feed the little man, Matt plays with the kids while I go running. I can't begin to explain how good a long run feels at the end of the day. My runs are beautiful. I live in a cute neighborhood that has mountains around it, as well as horses in one part. It's the perfect way to unwind from a busy day with the kiddos. I'm so blessed to have a husband who gives me this time to myself.

The days are getting more and more beautiful. I can't wait to see what next week holds!
