We’re relishing in the heart of spring around here, but it’s hard not to look ahead to summer. Here in California, we’ve been experiencing some summer-high temperatures that have pretty much encouraged summer-like thinking. We’re enjoying cool slices of sweet watermelon, warm nights lounging in the backyard, and lots and lots of water play with the garden hose and water balloons.
With the sun shining mighty hot and bright these days, I felt it would be a perfect time to suggest some summery baby names to consider for your summer-born babies. The names listed have either a “hot” or “sunny” meaning, so you’re sure to come across one perfect for a summer baby!
It’s almost here. Very shortly, I will become a mother of four. Four. Motherhood is in and of itself a true blessing. So how grateful am I to be blessed with the opportunity to be called “Mama” by four little people? Incredibly grateful! I’ve been told that mothering four is easier than three. If that’s true, then I know for sure that I’ll have this mommyhood x 4 in the bag.
My due date is officially a thing of the past. It came and went and nothing happened. I wasn’t expecting to deliver the baby that day, hardly any women ever do. But I was expecting to feel something. You know, a contraction or two. Or three or four. My body and I have been through this 3 times before. We know the drill. No need for a dress rehearsal, we got this. I was certain with all the nesting I nested and the cooking I cooked and the preparing I prepared, that I would have actually had the baby early. That clearly hasn’t been the case.
It’s no secret that I’ve been nesting. So much so that I’m pretty much nesting all day and into the night. Today, I had a dear friend come over for a visit. As we chatted, I sewed. Then I made chicken noodle soup. Then I… just kidding. That was it. Ha! As if that isn’t enough. All I should be doing from now until Baby arrives is rest. I just can’t help it!
