Just Pluggin’ Along

Weekly Happenings: This past week was another entry in the “just pluggin’ along” books. We didn’t do anything out of the ordinary, didn’t go anywhere out of the ordinary, and just sort of hung around the house. It wasn’t necessarily a bad thing, though. I think weeks like these are good because they make the “fun weeks” even more fun. Plus, they’re good for this slightly-introverted momma who needs time to decompress on a regular basis.

The Weekly Weather: It was pretty average, too. I don’t think we even got any rain, so it was typical spring weather: warm and sunny.

What Paul’s Been Up To: Mainly just school and work. He did spend some time yesterday trying to figure out why the water pressure in the house is so low at times. He thinks there might be a problem with the pressure regulating valve, but he needs to do a bit more research. The fun of home ownership!

What Sarah’s Been Up To: Not too much out of the ordinary for me, either. Mainly just keeping the kids happy and healthy. Like I said…we’re just pluggin’ along. 🙂 I did take the kids to the park one day, which they seemed to like (Joseph liked getting to play and Abigail liked sitting in the shade, checking out the trees).

What Joseph’s Been Up To: He had a good week at school, and also didn’t seem to mind our week at home. He’s rather social, but luckily he gets to socialize at school, so when he gets home, he’s good to have some down time. He did get pretty excited yesterday when he discovered a male cardinal hanging out in our back yard. We got home from running a short errand and he saw a flash of bright red in one of our trees. He asked what it was, and I wasn’t sure, at first. Then it hopped onto an outside branch and I got a good look at its profile. I was rather surprised, because I didn’t think they ever made it this far south (I suppose I consider them an “East Coast bird”), but I guess they do!

What Abigail’s Been Up To: Her major development this week is that she has learned to roll from her back to her belly. She’s also learned to move her body around more in general when laying on her activity mat. The combination of these two developments results in her not always being exactly where I originally put her when I first put her down. It’s a good reminder that it won’t be too long before she’s mobile.

This Week in Pictures:

I think it’s pretty cute when she uses her bib as a comfort item when she naps.
Though, it’s also pretty cute when she uses her onesie for the same purpose.
Someone has discovered that belly-sleeping is pretty comfy.
Joseph was pretty excited to see that the giant cement spheres in front of Target were decorated like Mario and Luigi from Super Mario Brothers. He wanted me to take his picture with Mario. I love how he chose to pose! 🙂
