I can’t believe I remember how to login to this site. Holy moly. It’s been a while. 3 months(ish) to be exact(ish).
A lot has changed. It is hot outside now. The last time we chatted, I was complaining about having to dress a baby in a parka to venture outside. These days, Atlas only wears pants on special occasions. Kid rocks a diaper and a t-shirt 95% of the time. That’s right – we’re keeping it classy up in NYC. Atlas is also rocking 4 new teeth and he’s mobile now. Boy is on the move!
Talk about a game changer. He has got to be the world’s fastest crawler. Seriously – on behalf of my son, I challenge your baby to a race. Just put a dog’s water bowl at the finish line and I guarantee you my kid will win the crawling contest every.single.time. I hope he runs as fast as he crawls one day. I can barely keep up with him now, so I’m not sure what I’ll do when he starts walking. When he’s not making a beeline for the dogs’ water bowl, he’s playing in the trash or in the toilet or trying to find a light socket that hasn’t been child proofed. I wish I was joking. We spend most days at the park to avoid the aforementioned.
NYC parks are where the party is at. There are splash pads at every park and Atlas is obsessed with them. If you don’t mind paying a stupid amount of money to live in a shoebox sized apartment, NYC is really a neat place to raise kids. The city is filled with activities that are free or relatively cheap for children during the summer.
We’ve just been living life with our 9 month old. Everything with Atlas is like an olympic sport these days – changing his diaper…getting him dressed…getting him to eat…bathing him…it is all exhausting (in a good way – mostly), so I haven’t had much energy/time/brain power to write. I hope that changes because I have a lot I would like to write about – mainly what God is teaching me through motherhood…and a few workouts I’ve been loving…and a rice-krispy treat ice-cream sandwich and a red velvet cake donut that are blowing my mind (yeah, those are things – come on and get your plane ticket to the Big Apple). But even if I don’t get to document every day of our life on this blog, we’re enjoying life and that’s what truly matters. 🙂
