So, let's do a catch-up post, shall we? There are a couple of other things from August that will get their own posts later, but for now, this will do. Here are some of the fun things we did in August:
We moved into a new house. Unpacking is still a work in progress, but much progress has been made. It is my goal to finish setting up, take pictures and share the house with you before we decorate it for Christmas. Lofty goals!
Dr. Ellie got some more practice in her chosen profession alongside our pediatrician at E.J.'s one-month well-visit.
She's a natural.
I impressed myself by actually leaving the house and venturing out into public on my first day home alone with both kids. "Train park" and Panera Bread!
One kid is super happy and the other is sleeping. I was killing it.
On the last day of summer vacation before Eric went back to work, we took E.J. to the zoo for the first time. He slept through the whole thing, but Ellie got to feed a giraffe!
Feeding the giraffe!
That giraffe looks well-fed, if you ask me.
A zoo snooze

We did lots of exploring our new neighborhood, but I'll talk more about that soon!

Before officially handing over the keys to our old apartment, we hit the pool one more time.
Swimming with Mama
Fun with Daddy
This kid knows how to relax poolside
Love these two!

And, my mom came to visit, and we took her to one of our new favorite parks.

Pretty busy for an already busy month, right?
