Last Friday, Felicity and I decided to hang out outside while my husband was doing yard work. Everything about the day was perfect. I even brought out a towel for Felicity to sit on (while enjoying her snack)…and an apple ale for me. It must have been about 5 o’clock in the afternoon while all of this was going down. I’m sure our neighbors thought we were nuts to be hanging out in the driveway versus the grass. Not to say I didn’t try – Felicity just isn’t a fan of grass…or anything with texture (the finger paint for example). In fact, I did a test run of the cake smash with her yesterday afternoon. I tried smashing her hand into it, but she just pulled back and clung to me. I just don’t want her to cry on her birthday when we present her with a cake. No one wants an unhappy birthday girl. Either way, I’m quite certain that we’ll hang out on the front lawn more often (I should mention that we have no shade in our back yard…otherwise we’d hang out there. We also recently killed a snake in the backyard a few weeks ago – yuck!). We’ll start with Sunday.
By the way, in case you didn’t catch it last week…Felicity’s birthday is tomorrow. I will do my best to pull together a photo collage of her monthly photos or something to share. Be sure to swing by and wish her a happy birthday! My baby is growing up!!!
