Join me today with Karli and the farmer’s wife for Week #2 of oh hey Friday!

oh hey! ONE | Toddler Summer Reading

We’ve made so many trips to the library this summer for storytime, dance lessons, puppet shows, and crafts. E is participating in two summer reading programs, along with his ongoing “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” program.


He has changed so much in 12 months… and yet… same toys, same stance and hand placement:

I’ve also managed to squeeze in a little reading of my own. On Monday, E slept in FIVE HOURS later than usual and then took a 3-hour nap (unheard of!), so I was able to start and finish Jodi Picoult’s “The Storyteller.” LOVED. Her books are so intense – thinking about this one kept me wide awake several nights this week. And yes, I read every.baby.boy.name. just to make sure!

We participated in Chick-fil-a’s “Cow Appreciation Day” to get free meals. We first took E to this event when he was only 8 days old. We have also camped there for their “First 100” events.

On Thursday, our church had a mom’s playgroup at our local lake. It makes me want to get an annual pass! I wish I could join this group year-round.

We’re in the early stages of potty-training around here. E sits the potty several times a day, so proud of himself. And that’s where we are. The pediatrician recommended to either do it now before baby comes, or not for another 6 months. I’m anxious to get him out of his cloth diapers so that they’re available for baby to use 12 weeks from now, though they could share. When we send E back to school in August, they will require pull-ups and will help with potty-training there. So far candy and books have  created a positive association with sitting there, as well as having his favorite stepstool under his feet. And his Elmo insert:

And on that note, happy Friday!
