It’s been a few weeks since my last post…but this summer has been so fun! We have traveled around Texas and still have a few more trips up our sleeve….
We started the summer by hitting Angel Fire, NM with my best friend and her son. Needless to say, that trip deserves a blog post in itself. We hit a deer, got locked out of the cabin were supposed to stay with, and had two very Mommy-loving boys who did not want to share anything. Good times. The car has pretty much been totaled, but would made it.
We went to the Palo Duro Canyon for the 4th of July and hiked the Rock Garden. I grew up near the Palo Duro and even danced in the play TEXAS down there so it has a special place in my heart! Luca loved it, but man it was hot!
On a medical note….we are pleased to say that my little guy is FINALLY on the growth charts! If you’ve been following my story for a while, you know that weight gain has been a big issue with us for a while and we went on a gluten free diet starting at the end of April. And man, has it paid off. Since May 1st, my little has gained 4.12 pounds, three inches, and TWO SHOE SIZES. I can’t keep this kid in shoes. His energy levels have skyrocketed, his speech has excelled, and he’s a completely different kid.
In celebration, I want to share a company that has helped US celebrate..Wooden Grove.
I recently received a growth chart from them that we are in love with! We bought a new house in January, and it’s taken this long to really get anything on the walls. Once I received the growth chart, I made it my mission to start the home decor process because I was so in love with the look of it on our wall. And it came at such a great time. The company put a ton of love into this piece, and you can tell. The board is smooth, so I can keep Luca next to it for pictures for the grandparents or to add in pencil the date.
Growth has been such a huge part of our concerns with Luca and we have tried so many different ways to pack on the pounds. Now that we’re in a stage of life where my little guy has met this goal (for now, at least), we can keep making summer fun a priority!
Go over to the Wooden Grove and get you a handmade and well-crafted growth chart! It’s the perfect staple for your home!
