Feeling MAJORLY weird/in denial that it’s the last week of August.
Like, I’ve only eaten THREE peaches all summer. How is this possible?!
As further proof that time is fuh-lying, Remy has been running around saying all the words. I swear it’s a new word a day! When we started out the summer I was worried because she was barely saying anything and now she is definitely making up for lost time. Most of the words are somewhat abbreviated versions of the actual words (so cheese is “chee”) but for most things you can really tell what she’s saying. It’s so fun!
But also, I need to figure out how to stop time. Like, yesterday.
I have off again this whole weekend so we are going to spend some time getting together with friends we haven’t seen in months and hopefully eat lots of good food. I’ve got a double chocolate layer cake and nutella-stuffed french toast on the menu, so you know it will be good.
