4th of july weekend

by Ally- Life as I know it, 7:58 PM
We had a great weekend and having a short work week makes it even better! We're heading to our annual family reunion at Wrightsville Beach, NC on Friday so lucky for me I get another few days off. This summer is flying by and I can't believe Oliver will be 9 months old on Saturday! I'm going to be planning his 1 year old birthday party before I know it. And that is NOT ok!

We visited Holy City Brewery on Saturday. Oliver did so well while we were there even though we were outside under a covered area in the heat. I put him in his stroller and he was just chillin, looking around at everyone, watching the fans, and chewing on his toys.

We had dinner at Monza with our friend's Cait and Steve that night. Since we both had babies last year, we haven't had a chance to go out with just them (sans babies) like we used to. But thanks to grandmas we were able to enjoy a parents' night out!

We went to my parent's house for dinner and the pool on Sunday. 

Oliver is no longer army crawling, he's real crawling now, and going everywhere! Even off the bed! I had a big mommy fail on Sunday and did what you're not supposed to do and stepped away for 2 seconds to go grab wipes while Oliver was laying on the bed. I turned around to walk back and I saw Oliver do a full on back flip off the bed onto the hardwood floor. It was the most frightening thing I've ever seen. Somehow my child walked away without a single scratch, bruise, or bump on him. All we can guess is he landed on his poopy diaper first and it provided a cushion and protected his head from hitting hard. I am SO thankful he's fine and I can assure you, I will never leave my child on a high surface alone again!

4th of July was spent lounging around the house and in the afternoon we went to a family cookout. 

Hope you had a wonderful 4th as well!

  1. omg oliver is SO cute and he is getting SOOO Big!!! i cant believe he is almost 9 months old already! miss you! xo jillian

  2. Sounds like a great weekend, minus the little boo boo! Don't worry before you know it he'll be falling off things left and right, because boys are crazy and fearless. Love your cover up and both those dresses- so cute.

  3. Girl, Molly Anne fell off the bed too right around 9 months. Kevin was "watching" her when he turned and looked at me for two seconds. So scary. But it happens to everyone. Don't beat yourself up over it!!

  4. Oliver is seriously the cutest! I love his little outfits!

  5. I can't believe how old Oliver looks all of a sudden! And I echo Natalie- now that he is mobile he'll be getting bumps and bruises all of the time! Don't worry, its just the stage he is in and you guys will adapt! PS We need to do dinner again- particularly when I don't look so sunburned hahah

  6. Time is flying! I can't believe your little one and my monkeys will be 1 soon! :( He is so cute! I wish I had known you guys were going to be in Wrightsville Beach. This is the one weekend we won't be around there in July. I would love to meet you and have Oliver meet my boys! If you are ever in the area again, please let me know!

  7. Oliver is so handsome! Glad he's okay after his spill! xo, Champagne&Suburbs
