Becoming a Stepmom

I know I'm not blogging as much these days, but I've mentioned here and there that I am becoming a stepmom to the most awesome 5-year-old ever when I marry Adam.  While it's not "legal" until the wedding day, I'm already 100% part of this kiddo's life as he is mine... and I can't tell you how amazing it feels to know that he loves me and to love on him.

We get to spend a decent bit of time with him this summer, which means some time where it's just him and me hanging out while daddy is at work.  We're learning new things like how to swim underwater, how to spell and write our last name, how to tie his shoes, etc.  We are doing science projects and making crafts.  We're watching a lot of Goosebumps! (Do y'all remember that show from Nickelodeon? It was more silly than scary, and he eats it up!)  But mostly we're just hanging out and enjoying summer life.

There's nothing sweeter to me these days than when that little voice says, "Melanie?" and I say "yes?" and he says, "I love you." And most times also grabs me for a kiss...

I'm so excited to be a part of this little man's life and to help his daddy shape him into being an amazing man!

Here are just a few photos from the week before last when he spent the first of three weeks we enjoy his company with us this summer!

We went to the library and got a ton of books and movies!

When I was doing Insanity one day, he decided he needed to try it and do some of the stretches!
