our week by iPhone - week 88

there's gonna be a lot of parker up in here this week.  just like the last post says, he's my little homie.  i'm so happy to have these good times with him these last couple weeks before baby brother comes.  he's not gonna know what hit him!

here's what our week looked like in iPics.

monday.  after stroller strides we hit up costco & got food to take to a potluck with friends monday night.  there was bbq & swings & hand holding with older girls.

tuesday.  umm, who is this grown up little boy?  helping me make sandwiches, sitting on the potty {yes, his shorts are up... just getting used to the idea!} & jumping on his BIG BOY BED.  pinch me, interwebz.

tuesday afternoon it was off to hesitantly stand in cold lakewater with cami & then home to snuggle with daddy.

wednesday.  family night at the mall!  shopping for big boy underwears & then dinner at chipotle made this little guy absolutely exhausted.  he's been sleeping on his big boy bed all week & LOVES it.

thursday.  that belly?  holding a full term baby folks.  while i went into the office, ate at our bbq potluck & received awesome baby-presents from awesome co-workers {thank you guys!!} parker hung out with his girlfriend cami.  he reportedly insisted on holding her hand everywhere they went & in turn, melted my heart into a big gooey puddle.

and guess what?  baths are back in p-ray's good graces!  hooray for no more baby-bathing-torture!  baths are fun again.

friday.  a torrential downpour led parker & i to starbucks for a breakfast date rather than stroller strides {who needs to work out when you're 2-3ish weeks away from baby day anyway, right?} and then it was off to a birthday party friday afternoon where parker slept the whole way there with his blanket over his head.  i couldn't make this stuff up.

after we partied it up halloween-style, we met up with our friends lindsey & tim who were camping about five minutes from our house.  we crashed their campfire to roast hot dogs & s'mores & i crossed one more thing off my pre-baby bucket list.  cooking things over fires is a pretty big deal to me.

saturday.  another major thing sam & i wanted to do this summer before baby?  a daytrip to the ocean. the washington coast is about an hour & a half west of us so we were there by noon.  delicious lunch was had, splashing in ocean water & walking barefoot on the beach was done, exploring the amazing neighborhoods of seabrook went down & then sleeping the whole way home happened.  more pictures of our day will be posted later this week...

probably my best time at the washington coast EVER.

  1. Glad Parker is enjoying his big boy bed! What a fun transition. He's getting so big! Looks like you guys had a great time at the ocean! I think I'm going to have to make a pre-baby bucket list for Noah. What a fun idea!

  2. Fun week! Is Seabrook the place Sam helped design? It looks really neat! And a Halloween party in July? That's a neat idea!

  3. I guess "neat" is the word of the day. I need to go to bed.

  4. Wow you are getting close!! Great photos! Love that you are crossing things off that baby bucket list. The Washington Coast looks beautiful!!

  5. go parker! such a big boy!!!! i'm dreading this day :(

  6. great pictures, especially saturday. i love how you didn't apply the heavy filters in the series.


  7. I've always wanted to check out seabrook! It looks like the perfect place for a weekend or day getaway! And btw, Parker is getting so big!

  8. Your daytrip looks fabulous! And a lot of Parker is just fine by me. :)

  9. sounds like you had an eventful week! Wish we could have gotten some of that rain, i was actually thinking about you & all the rain you get your way.. we haven't had rain in weeks & it's really starting to take a toll.

  10. I love this! Very eventful and adorable!

  11. A wonderful week! Seabrook is one of my happiest memories visiting you guys! Looks like you packed in lots of happy times!

  12. Seabrook looks so adorable! I love little beach towns. Putting it on my list :)

  13. You're tempting me to bite the bullet and put my child in a big girl bed. But I have this nagging feeling she won't do quite as well :). And I want that soup thank you very much. I'd want it even more if it wasn't a million degrees here. I'm always jealous when I see you guys in jackets.

    Glad you made it to the beach!

  14. I LOVE your owl shower curtain!! Where did you find it? : )

    1. thanks Amanda! I found it at Fred Meyer but I've also heard it's available on Target online :)
