We've been on a nice little break from almost everything. I took a couple of weeks off from all social media because I felt like it was consuming me. I cancelled all therapy appointments the past month because I was either dreading them or getting depressed after. I mentioned I was in a funk in my last post and that funk went on longer than expected. That was when I decided I just needed to recharge and it absolutely helped. I think my boys were grateful too.
We went to Fredericksburg (which is down in the hill country part of Texas) a couple of weeks ago for a few days. We usually try to go once a year. It's a cute little town with lots of wineries, shops, and beautiful scenery. This little vacation was much needed by the whole family.
Here are a couple of the spring pictures we had done of the boys. The best pics were when they weren't looking. Carter does this weird fake smile now and Camden just stares at you like you're nuts when you are trying your hardest to make him smile.
Easter was great despite the gloomy weather. The egg hunt ended just before the storm hit. We got to see Rylie, but Ryan couldn't come this time. Carter loves spending time with his big bubbas. It's nice to watch their relationship grow as he gets older. The boys got to spend time with their Uncle Tommy and soon to be Aunt Amy too.
We have been able to spend a lot of time outside lately and I'm loving it! This time of year is perfect. Once June hits we start with the 100+ degree temperatures and it's steamy hot.
The great thing about this little break was that Camden's skills really started to come on like crazy. He's done more new things these past few weeks than he's done in months. A lot of them were little things that we've been waiting forever for him to do. He did this before a while back. Once I backed off and took a break from things, he would bust out a new skill. I think he can feel the stress and frustration from me at times. I promise to write all about it in my next post. I will say that he definitely moves now. He's not crawling or scooting, but he has his own crazy way of getting around. There is no more of sitting him down somewhere and expecting him to stay there!
