Being a stay-at-home mama to child that can't talk real words is somewhat lonely. I am finding myself craving two way conversation and getting down about not doing much other than rolling around on the floor, singing songs and making silly faces.
Before I became a mama I worked in a busy coffee stand where I would talk with over 200 customers in a short 5 hour block. I remember looking forward to getting off work so I could have a break from talking. Now I am finding my life is the complete opposite, I stay at home with my little one having no adult conversation counting down the minutes until my husband gets home so I can have some two way conversation! Whats silly is I know so many stay at home mamas in my town but I never actually call any of them to hang out. "I just don't want to bug them," is what I tell myself.
I really can't believe 30 weeks has already come and gone, time seems to be speeding by. This weeks we have been battling teething and Ruby has also had a cold. This has made for many long nights of getting up each and every hour to sooth her back to sleep. It really sucks seeing her in pain, defiantly not a fun part of being a parent.
cause it looks like this out, fall has indeed arrived.
I was thinking how silly it is that I spend most days at home just Ruby and I when I know so many people with little babe's. I am going to try and get out of my little house and spend time with other mamas and babe's.
I went through my closets and decided to get ride of ALOT of clothes, the pictured above stuff will be listed on ebay (HERE) and the rest will go to the consignment shop or be sold at a garage sale! I pulled over 100 articles of clothing out of my closet to rid myself of!!!
Today was pleasant so after church we packed ourselves a lunch, walked out to "our" island (the one we got married on) and enjoyed the beauty and quiet. It seems like quality family time is few and far between so when it happens I like to sit back and cherish it.
Every time we go out to the island Dan and I day dream about moving to a remote island and living off the grid, maybe someday!
Salmon are spawning which means there are a lot of salmon, dead and alive, in all the little streams throughout the wetlands. As we walked to the island and back to the car we kept stepping on dead salmon hiding in the tall grass, it made the funniest sounds and Dan made the best impression of it.
Ruby was asleep the whole walk and woke up just in time for us to reach the beach.
I sat Ruby down with the view in front of her, she sat and took in the beauty while sucking on a toy!
the said dead salmon
more dead salmon
walking back to the car
24 or more dead salmon
kind of creepy
the grass was super tall for part of our walk, poor Jack
It was great enjoying the beauty God created.
Oh yeah, Jack (the dog) rolled on one of the dead salmons, it was a smelly ride home.
