Towards the end of summer we headed down to visit my sister and my mom. Annika had a blast playing with all of Zeke and Dagan's toys. Especially the skateboard. Zeke also has hamsters and Annika thought they were pretty fun. I'm pretty sure she would have loved to bring one home. Matt was in agreement with this too. Me, not so much. So for now, they will stay with Zeke and we will just visit. After hanging with my family, we headed off to the lake with some friends. We didn't stay long but we had a great time. I hope we can do it again next summer, when I'm not pregnant and it isn't so hot.
Annika loved playing on the skateboard. I'm sure we should get her one. But we probably won't. Just another reason to go visit Aunt Jacque and family.
Watching the Olympics.
Playing with Zeke. They had a great time together during the weekend.
This is at my mom's house. We were in the kitchen and Annika was watching cartoons in the bedroom. Derek went to check on her and this is what he found. She isn't up super high, which is why we got the camera before getting her down, but after the photo shoot, we did put her on the floor and told her not to do it again.
Playing at the lake. She liked getting pulled around in the "boats."
I don't remember what we had done this day, but I do know she didn't have a nap. It was also around 6:30 and she stayed that way until I put her to bed around 7:00.
As hard as it was to go back to work and leave Annika with a new daycare, I'm looking forward to the next few months. Annika loves all her new friends at daycare, my school year is going well, as is Derek's, and everyday we get closer to welcoming our little guy home. I love summer, but this will be a great fall!
