Baby Eugene has had a busy week!
We started Week 23 with a family picnic in Madison (see Mama’s terrible bump picture from that day below…terrible as in you can’t see the bump! 😂). He got to meet lots of cousins and I got to eat some more shrimp! (Don’t worry – all in moderation – I think that’s the 4th time I’ve eaten them and they’ve been cooked each time! 😊🦐) Baby Eugene slept through most of the party… I’m pretty sure he’s a night owl because he sure does love kicking me all night long!
On Sunday, Eugene got to go to his first Premier jewelry show at Grammy Ronda’s house. He clearly has good taste as he helped me to pick out lots of good stuff! 🙈 I am a little concerned about my affinity for long necklaces once he starts grabbing at stuff. I’ve seen baby friendly chunky necklaces – I might need to swap my good stuff for Eugene-friendly designs for a while!
I’m in the home stretch of summer. This one has been particularly long as we got out on our “new” calendar and go back to the “old” calendar…we always went back late August and got out during the second week in June…recently we switched to going back mid-August and getting out during the first week of June. Due to switching between the two, this summer was long and next will be short. Hopefully the year after will be more normalized. The last time we had a short summer, I taught summer school. Talk about a short summer! I have tried, despite everything, to enjoy the fact that this is my last child-less summer and soak up quiet time and freedom to go and do whatever and whenever!
Speaking of, Eugene went to his second concert last night, thanks to Grandpa Hank, Grammy Ronda, and Vettix! We saw Tim McGraw and Faith Hill at the Q Arena. The concert was great – Eugene did a little dancing but he saved most of it for midnight when I was trying to sleep! Then he was going crazy reminding me of his favorite songs of the night.
After Eugene’s first concert a few weeks ago, I asked my dad what my “in-utero” concert was and he thought it was probably Elton John “at least once”. Not a bad first concert for Mama!
Baby Eugene is the size of a grapefruit!
