Dear Jillianne: Third Time's the Charm

Dear Jillianne,

James is growing up! I knew when this time came it was going to be filled with mixed emotions for you. Just remember, I'm hear to listen to your confusing feelings about weaning! I remember crying and stroking June's hair the day she had her last drop of breastmilk. No matter the circumstances (voluntary or involuntary) weaning can be very sad. But I am so excited to see how your relationship with your son is going to evolve and become stronger than you ever thought possible! I'm so glad to hear that James' affection has not diminished! He's such a loving little boy and I know that is going to continue as he ages because of the examples his parents set for him.

And about the whole bra thing. They should make a holiday for the day women finally get to shove the nursing bra to the back of the drawer and pull out the more supportive, and definitely sexier, bras. Parties should be thrown, gifts should be given, and cake should be eaten. It's a great day!

We got to go to Budapest yesterday and finally do some fun things! Our first two trips there were quick and not filled with the touristy things. But yesterday we got to do so much!

We walked around Heroes Square. It's full of beautiful statues of the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, not to mention a bunch of tourists!

I had fun posing with all of the statues. 

Jillianne. We found Tex-Mex. And I know what you're thinking, Mexican food in Hungary!? You're crazy. This place was amazing. The food was better than most of the places we ate at in Texas. And maybe it's because I've been without Mexican food for over a month, but I loved this. We're definitely going back the next time we're in Budapest. 

And just for kicks, this is June at the pool this week. We got her a lifejacket and new hat (she dropped her old one on a walk somewhere). You know that scene in A Christmas Story where the mom puts so many layers on her son that he can barely walk and move his arms? Yeah, I totally felt like that mom when I dressed Aleah. Reusable Swim diaper, UV shirt, lifejacket, sun hat with neck protection,  sunglasses, and water shoes. She was definitely the most dressed at the pool. But isn't she so cute!?

As I write this I'm sitting in a super cute cafe drinking the largest vanilla latte the sell while June is at nursery learning and playing with her new friends. A girl could get used to this! I can't wait for you to come visit and experience all of this with me! 

Is it cooling off there at all? The weather is so perfect today. Overcast with a small breeze. Now if our small town could just get some Pumpkin Spice Lattes it might actually feel like Fall! 

Oh and Mingo said Bailey is welcome to come over with you guys. Our yard is plenty big! 

Miss you! Szia! 
God Bless,
