Parenthood is one of my favorite shows and last week in their episode, Going Home, the grandparents on the show, Zeke and Millie, went to their old house to retrieve a old baseball to give to a new grandchild that was about to be born. Once they got there, they saw children laughing and squirting each other with water guns in the backyard. As Zeke and Millie watched they laughed and smiled with a sense of nostalgia. A mother finally appeared at the door and Zeke said, "Let's go. I want these kids to find the ball in the barn one day and think they just won a treasure hunt." He then looked at the mother and said, "I hope she's enjoying every moment of this." It was one of my favorite scenes and I know I'm not doing it justice, but it struck a core with me. We have 8 weeks left with Sawyer and we want to focus and enjoy every moment with him.
In my January goals, I wrote that I want to do one fun adventure with Sawyer a month before the baby comes. Last Saturday, we were able to. We went to Massanutten Indoor Water park for the day and it was such a great day. Sawyer had a blast on the lazy river and even braved a big boy slide. Here are a few snapshots from our day.
|Sawyer's really into crawling like Spiderman right now.|
I know that we'll have excitement, trips and chaos when baby boy #2 comes, but I do want to try to cherish these next few weeks that I have with Sawyer. I want him to know that even though things will change, he'll always be loved and now, we can talk about all the adventures that we did together before the baby came.
