Project 52:42 • Surfer Dude



***

If you love beaches and you’ve never been to Destin, Florida, book a trip immediately. You will not be sorry. From the clear, glassy blue water to the sand as soft as powdered sugar, this is the closest you can get to Paradise here in the USA.

Upon returning home, I was left with just one question: “WHY did we only stay 5 days?!” A return trip cannot come soon enough!

Project 52:37 • The Gift of Gab




***

We used to joke that once Beau started talking, he’d never stop. Our joke has become our reality. No words or phrases escape him, so we have to be on our guard not to say something we don’t want repeated (“stupid,” for example).

It’s so fun to have someone to talk to while Daddy is at work. It makes life seem easier when Beau can tell me what he wants and needs. And besides that, some words just sound extra-cute coming from a two-year-old (“ficy” = spicy)

Project 52:36 • The Very Hungry Boy




***

Having grown up with only sisters, there was a lot I didn’t know about boys when I was blessed with a son.

For example, I knew boys were rumored to eat everything in sight…I just thought that phase didn’t start til the preteens at least.

Boy, was I wrong.

Project 52:35 • Worn Plum Out




***

My cousin Zoe and her husband gave Beau the cutest little astronaut boots when he was just a baby. For months, they were displayed on a little shelf, waiting to be worn. The first time I put them on Beau’s feet, he cried. I guess he didn’t like the way they came almost all the way up to his knees.

Then, he liked them. Correct that. LOVED them. Wouldn’t ever wear regular shoes. I guess it’s because he could put them on without help (as you can tell by the missing pull-straps on both boots).

These boots are dried out, cracked, peeling, and missing pieces. I’m sad no other babies will ever get to wear these, but so happy he loved them enough to wear them out.

Project 52:34 • A Box Rocks



***

Some of the longest periods of independent play are made possible by a simple cardboard box. Since our Vitacost shipment arrived this morning, this box has already been reincarnated as a bucking horse (shown above, post-buck), a step-stool, a chair, a bed for Kitty, a train shed, and a hat.

Who needs fancy toys, really?

Project 52:33 • Mr. Sandman





***

Thank goodness the last few days have been a bit cooler! My boy needs outdoor time in order to stay civil, and I need him to stay civil in order to stay sane. ;)

We had a small amount of sand left after I turned my old volleyball into a DIY medicine ball. It was just enough to fill a plastic tub we had. But apparently, it’s more fun to play in sand that’s just dumped out on the porch.

Boys.
