Summer is flying by. We have a low-key weekend planned: more basement work and a family jaunt.

That’s it for this week, folks.

In other news, Emma is perfecting her backwards slide. Yesterday she slide under the coffee table and it took me a while to track her down.

She’s starting to get those legs up and under her so I suppose crawling isn’t too far away.

Not surprisingly, she finds this process to be fulfilling and frustrating at the same time.

When in doubt, take a breather. And suck your thumb.
