Maybe it is because my attention was focused towards Chloe’s birth, but I feel like summer snuck up on us. It has been so warm out these days and it has been hard to keep our house cool. I always keep the blinds closed and usually keep the fans on- we even broke down and bought a window ac unit which really helps as well.
As for what is going on in this world in June… many stores have reopened during the pandemic but with new rules and restrictions for customers and workers. But with that, more cases of the corona virus have also been reported. There is talk that we will be able to go back to church sometime next month. The “Black Lives Matter” movement has also ramped up again. It has been hard to go onto social media these days because of all the opinions and politics shared on these two points. I wrote a blog post about my thoughts HERE – please be kind if you disagree with me.The best part about this month is that we finally felt safe enough to take a road trip to Utah. Chloe got to meet her aunt Mckinsey and aunt Rebecca, (my sisters) and her great grandma Jones, my cousin Ashely and some other friends. She was the excitement of the party for sure. While in Utah my sisters and I did a clay jewelry craft one afternoon. Sheldon and I also took Chloe on a walk around the temple we got married in which was really special.
Sheldon’s twin brother also just had a newborn baby. She was born exactly a month after Chloe- how fun that these girl cousins will be able to grow up so close in age! We got to meet her when she was just 2 weeks old.
Chloe turned 1 month old- I will link that post HERE. Chloe does very well riding in the car and she slept the whole drive to Utah and she also slept the whole way back. Chloe continues to grow each day and is no longer using newborn diapers. She is getting bigger and smarter, it has been so fun to follow her development. She is smiling and constantly using her muscles to kick and wiggle. One of my favorite things that she does is giggle, but I also like how she can grasp her fingers tightly around small objects. ￼￼when people meet her they are always so surprised to see how alert she is because her eyes are wide open and starting to track movement.
Creative projects: I’ve done this almost every month for the past four months but I did a little clay jewelry sale for the ￼4th of July, I made some business cards for a friend with a logo I had previously created for her, ￼a watercolor painting for a family in need, and I made a rope rainbow keychain for a friends birthday.
