Wow, June already. Who is speeding up these months? On the agenda for June we have a Kindergarten graduation (sniff, sniff), my niece's 8th grade graduation, the kids getting out of school for the summer, Phil getting out of work for the summer, Altar Server Bootcamp, and a 24 hour getaway for our family to celebrate a great school year!
What would a blog post be without an updated picture of the resident Martin baby?
Declan is 2 months old and still falling off the growth curves at each appointment. He is now in the 15% for his weight. Poor skinny little man. Our pediatrician is starting to get a little bit concerned as to why since he eats from me nonstop when we are together, and gets my pumped breastmilk while I'm at work. I joke that I'm making skim milk this time around. She is having us come back in one month for a weight check, so we'll see what happens. Otherwise he is a very happy and healthy baby boy, and still the main attraction in our house these days.
Today is National Donut Day!! As if anyone needs an excuse to eat a donut :)
Just don't go to Dunkin donuts - blech. Find a yummy mom and pop donut shop for some that are truly worth their calories! (I love me some DD coffee and breakfast sandwiches, just not the donuts).
Father's Day is coming soon!!!
I wrote about my gifts for guys a while back, but now I need a new idea. What are you getting your husband or dad for the big day?
Phil and I had been thinking about letting our gym membership go. I joined the gym 8 years ago and have faithfully used it multiple times a week since then. But, lately we have just been so pressed on time with all the kids and have been going for family walks/bike rides or evening jogs instead.
Yesterday was the first day I went back to the gym since I gave birth and oh.my.word am I sore today. All I did was run/walk intervals on the treadmill but it helped me remember just how much I love a good sweat session. And it seems that I can only have a really good, uninterrupted workout at the gym. So I think keeping the membership is worth it. Right?
Maggie has been taking Irish step dancing lessons! I'm so so so excited about this. We had looked around for awhile to finally find one, and it's on Cape Cod so it's a little drive, but her friend is taking them too, so her mom drives Maggie for me. Isn't that so nice? In the meantime, we're watching a lot of Riverdance...
That gave me chills when I saw it live as a young girl, and still does every single time I watch that clip.
Here's the two Irish girls before their first class:
|Maggie is 6 and Sophie is 5, and yes Maggie is a giant :)|
Still waiting on Dweej and that stubborn baby boy. I know allllllll about that, and can't wait to hear the good news!
Have a great weekend everyone!
