Sam turned 2 weeks old yesterday so this morning we headed to see Dr. Anderson at the clinic. Sam weighs 8 pounds, 6 ounces and has grown 2 inches - he was 21.5 inches long. He got a good report from Dr. A and afterwards we all headed to Chic Fil A for some breakfast, then to Star Lake in Hoover to feed the ducks. It was my first time actually being out and about with both kiddos and despite the heat, it was really fun and not nearly as stressful as I imagined it would be; don't get me wrong, I was sweating bullets after our time at the park, especially after putting both kids in their car seats and loading up the stroller, bags, etc. Ugh! It's H.O.T. After the park we came home and Mary Ella played with her water table out on the porch for a while. Now both babies are sleeping and I'm sitting down for the first time since 7am! Ahhhhh.
Chad decided to grow some heirloom tomatoes this year in the backyard. They started off as teeny sprouts and now they are all producing some fruit. I'm not a huge fan of eating tomatoes unless they are cooked or in some sort of casserole, so I need to gather some recipes before we harvest our first crop; otherwise we'll have 'maters coming out our ears and I'd hate to have to open my own produce stand in this heat. Mary Ella enjoyed checking on them with Chad the other night. She didn't want to come inside, even though it was 100 degrees and the humidity was like 150%.
Two weeks from now this little tot will be TWO! I can't believe it. I love me some Mary Ella.
