Not So Wordless Wednesday

  • It is officially blueberry season in South Georgia, which means M and I are devoting a large portion of our evenings to the following activities: transporting our freshly picked blueberries to our processing shed, coordinating tools for our picking crew, repairing leaks in our irrigation system, and mowing/spraying/trimming our fields.
  • Joycelen has seemingly grown over night. She is holding her head up for longer periods of time (nearly 4 minutes yesterday) and is pushing up while enjoying tummy time. Her vocal skills have greatly improved. She coos at nearly everyone she meets, but saves her high pitched happy shrieks for family and friends.
  • The weather down here is hot, hotter, and hottest. We have combated the heat (and humidity) with daily swims in the pool. Joycelen is still a bit too young to join us in the water, but either M or I will sit on the side and let her dip her toes in the water.
  • M and I are both swamped with work. M is trying to complete the school that he was been working on since last July. The official completion is set for mid-September, which means the next few months will be filled with early mornings, late evenings, and a few weekends of work. As for me, our office is preparing for our fiscal year end and annual financial audit. These requires a few additional tasks for me in addition to my regular work processes. I am feeling a bit stressed but know that things should slow down by mid-July.
  • My best friend is getting married on June 19th. Her bachelorette party is this weekend. I, along with my SIL, will be joining her and several other gals for an overnight stay in historic Savannah. It will be my first night away for Joycelen. I am excited about the girl’s night but a little sad that I will be away from my baby girl.

I think that sums up what is happening in our neck of the woods. What is happening in your world?

My friend told me it almost killed her to be away from her baby the first time. But at the same time, she said it is good to be herself instead of mother and wife. : )

It sounds like you're keeping busy! How did your girls night go? I remember having to leave Noah overnight for the first time. It was hard!
Happy belated 3 months to Joycelen!!
