June is my favorite weather month in Colorado. Cool nights and long, warm, (not too warm), sunshiny days make life in this beautiful state a wonderful experience. Life in the summertime with a baby can also be a wonderful experience.
Here are some of my favorite “summer life with baby” experiences:
- Baby bare feet. Who can resist kissing them?
No coat needed. Moms are coat hangers. It’s nice to be free of that responsibility for a season.
Popsicles. Need I say more?
Plastic baby pools. I can’t think of a cheaper form of fun in the summer. It feels good on big people toes too.
Sleeping baby in a diaper only. Awwww.
Baby sun hats. I didn’t think you could make a baby cuter, but somehow sun hats manage to do the trick!
Relatives visiting. Always great to have an extra set of hands around.
Stroller naps. This is always good for a late afternoon fussy gussy.
The sweet smell of sweaty babies.
Pool time=Bath time. The garden hose works well for cleansing too.
You may have noticed I have not included in this blog my non-favorite “summertime life with baby” experiences. Let’s not go there just yet. Winter will be here soon enough.
