Happy FRIDAY to us.
1. Because I can’t workout yet, walks are a lifesaver right now.
I’ve put baby Lily in the Ergo a few times now, and she loves it! She’s fallen asleep in it every time we’ve gone on a walk, so I’d say that is a success. Also, the Ergo is pretty comfy for me & doesn’t restrict any movement.
We have the infant insert, in case you care, and it works like a charm to keep her snuggled well against my chest.
Also, can I get an amen on beautiful fall weather?!? Gosh that fresh air feels grrreeaaatt. Good for the soul & body. And this mama needs that with being inside most of the day.
2. Baby Lily hasn’t been loving long naps during the day….
For some reason, these past 2 days, Lily did not want to stay asleep during her earlier afternoon naps?! So weird.
I would try & feed her again or change her, but still nada. The other day she ended up crashing in her swing (love that contraption!)
And finally yesterday, after many wake ups, she fell asleep on my chest while I rocked her.
So to get some blog work done, I lied down on the bed with pillows, and typed around her while she napped peacefully.
The things we do for our little ones. 😉 Actually, I rather kind of enjoyed it-I got Lily time, she slept well, and I got something done. #winning
She later moved to this position & she ‘helped’ me write this post. 😉
3. We had her photo shoot the other day, and I am dyyyyyying to see the pics!
I took just a few with my phone to document the occasion (and my friend/photographer didn’t care), but I sure can’t wait for the real ones.
Lily was a champ through it all, and through the many costume changes. 😉 She did pee once on the blanket when we were doing a naked bumm picture….but nothing a washing machine couldn’t fix!
4. Jared has today off. I am SO excited.
I really miss him during the day lately. Probably because it’s just me & Lily, with no real ‘adult’ interaction (no fitness classes or work to go to right now), so I feel real excited that he’ll be home allll day today! He still has homework, but whatevs, it’ll still be a nice change up from our routine lately.
Plus, I am not gonna lie, seeing him with Lily?? Heart melting. He adores her, and it’s so cute to see him with her. <3
5. My birthday is next week.
With all the excitement of Lily’s birth, I hadn’t really realized that my birthday was so close! I have no idea what ‘I want’ either….and I pretty much told Jared I already got it: baby Lily.
But if you have any other fun ideas of what I should put on my wish list, I’d love to hear ’em! Material possessions are always nice to get once in awhile, eh? 😉
6. My friend has an amazing new blog.
Lots of great resources, tips, and ideas for healthy living as a mama. Enjoy!
Alright people, I am off to take care of Lily, go to a doc’s appt with her (boooooo shots), and hang out with Jared! It will be a nice weekend together, so I am stoked.
Have a WONDERFUL weekend!
p.s. happy birthday (tomorrow) to one of my best friends!
