Laughing at…Toby waving his arms back and forth really fast when he’s done eating. And sometimes he’ll shout out “Whoa, Whoa, Whoa” when doing it.
Amused by…Toby’s new fascination with stealing things from the fridge and running away with them. For instance, yesterday he thought it was hilarious to take the milk jug out and run off with it. And today he managed to snatch a container of hummus and sneak away into the living room. By the time I realized he grabbed something, he figured out how to take off the lid and smeared globs of hummus on the floor. I was freaking out and laughing my ass off at the same time. And he was SO mad at me when I took the hummus back and made him wash off his hands.
Struggling with…change. Hubby has a new job which means longer commute which means lot of adjusting for me and Toby. And the solution is not me going back to work, like oh so many people have suggested.
Loving…fall is on its way! I remember last year feeling very sad with summer ending and how I wasn’t ready for the seasonal change. But this year I am all about autumn – bring on the pumpkin goodness!
Grateful for…my Scentsy business is really taking off and I’m pretty proud of my hard work :) Being my own boss has pushed me to branch out and be creative in all aspects of the business.
Working on…getting Toby to say more words. I’ve given up on him ever saying Mama but I will take anything else at this point as he’s just not very consistent with saying things.
Wishing…we were back in Maine still on vacation. This year’s week away at the beach was so different compared to last year, but in a good way! It was a lot of fun watching Toby “jump” in the waves for the first time, splash in the wet sand puddles, scoop up sand in his toys, and chase after dogs on their after-dinner night walks on the beach. He couldn’t get enough of the ocean – one day we had to pull him out since his feet were blue and he threw a fit the whole way back up to our spot on the beach. I think he would have gone completely under the water if we let him!
