Time With Our Little Fam

Hey friends!

Happy new week to us <3

Did you all have a good weekend? I totally didn’t open my computer all weekend long (and apparently the blog was down a bit. whoops)….so if ya missed Friday’s post. 😉

We did have a good weekend, for sure. However, it didn’t start super well….


YUCK. Did you know that being sick while being a mom < being sick when not a mom?

Just keeping it real, ya all.

time with our little fam


Thursday night I got like the flu or something, and it was not fun. I had a fever, was super freezing, and then really hot, and all that horrible stuff. So Lily & I slept pretty much all day on Friday.

We did have to take her to her 2-week checkup….and it was HORRIBLE to see her cry so hard when she got pricked. Sad day.

We calmed her down after a bit, and she got lots of extra snuggles allll day long. Poor little one.

time with our little fam

We did find out she is now 8 lbs 5 oz (so growing!), and grew 2 inches….She is now officially off the charts for height. The doc seemed surprised, so they checked again, and yep, she is 22.5 inches long. Jared & I aren’t that surprised though, we’re both tall!

time with our little fam

My little bro was in town for a bit for a dental school interview, so we hung out with him for a little while, but I still felt sick, so I mostly slept.

Oh but she also slept amazingly well on Friday night, for which I was grateful.

Saturday I felt tons better, thankfully!

I went to the grocery store by myself (Jared watched Lily), and it was epic.

Okay, it wasn’t, but I wanted to shout to all the people that I was out on my own after having given birth 13 days before. It was a weird feeling to be without her, but it was nice to get in & out really fast.

{accessories, thanks to Ashley!}

The rest of the day I cleaned while she napped, hung out with Jared, ate pizza, and we all just spent time together after dinner. It was really lovely!

time with our little fam

Funny story though: The 3 of us went to go pick up the pizza, and on the way home, she was really quiet in her car seat. We thought she was asleep (because she was). Well, when we got home and got her out of the carseat, she had barf alllllll over herself! And she didn’t even make a peep when it happened!

We felt uber bad about being horrible parents……but apparently she was fine with it?

hah. She totally loves us, I am sure.

time with our little fam

Jared and I watched a movie together that evening, and then I partied for part of the evening with Lily. :/

So….. Sunday we napped. Jared went to church, and when he was home, he totally put me to bed & took Lily so I could get some more sleep. He’s the best!

time with our little fam

Gahhhhh she is SO CUTE!!! <3


We then trekked to his parents’ house & had a fun evening meeting cousins, eating dinner, and making epic ice cream sundaes.

Lily seemed to have a good time! And I felt a lot better that it went so well (it was our first outing to GO somewhere with her, other than to the doc’s.), and it made me confident for other outings to come as the holidays get closer.

Overall the weekend was just really nice to spend some time the 3 of us, and get that quality time together!


Well, today I am sure I will nap, clean a bit, and spend lots of time with Lily! She is the bomb diggity.

Have a WONDERFUL day!

p.s. happy Veterans day (U.S.A). I am grateful for their sacrifice & service! <3

What is something wonderful YOU did over the weekend??! When was the last time YOU were sick?? How long was YOUR latest nap???!

  2. You’re officially a mom when you realize how amazing grocery shopping solo is! I cherish my time at the store sipping a Starbucks without a toddler pulling random stuff off the shelves haha.

  3. Ahhh bummer, so sad to hear you got sick, but it sounds like it came and went fairly quickly, so that’s good! Initially I was nervous that it was mastitis, but it doesn’t sound like it! I’m glad you guys had a fun little family weekend – those are the best. And I adore that last photo of you and Lily! Beautiful!

  4. Ugh, sickness sucks for everyone, I can only imagine how annoying it must be when you have a newborn! Glad to hear that you’re feeling better though. Annnnnnnnd I want an ice cream sundae (and of course, Lily is gorgeous – I can’t write a comment without at least mentioning that! :-p)

  6. I am so glad you are feeling better! It is so hard to be a Mom and to be sick – especially when your baby is so little!! And how awesome was Jared – I am glad you have a good husband like that around!!

  7. Shes so darn cute! Glad you’re feeling better!! Kay and I both got the flu when she was 3 months old. It was MISERABLE. Happy you got a little you time in too <3 <3

  8. Omg – I went to Trader Joes & Lululemon this weekend while Dave watched Atlas & it was amazing to be out of the house…alone. It took me 15 minutes to get out the door though because I kept asking Dave, “Are you SURE you guys will be okay?!” I was gone a total of 45 minutes & I ended up rushing back because I missed my baby boy. Being a new mom is so funny, right? On one hand, you long for some time alone, but on the other hand you can’t stand being away from your baby for more than 10 minutes.

  9. I got sick a couple weeks ago with a head cold for a couple days. It’s definitely no fun being a mom when you’re sick! I just survived those 3 days, but we got through it. I lysol-ed our house like a crazy woman to prevent the rest of my family from getting it. Aiden just got a stuffy nose but otherwise was okay.

  12. We have those mirrors in our car that go over the seat that the baby is sitting in. Some people say they’re “not safe” but I feel so much better being able to see what’s going on in the back. Don’t feel like a bad mom – Brooklyn has puked in her sleep while laying FLAT on her back before – actually, multiple times. I freaked the heck out and slept with her sleeping on my chest for a few nights (not good for sleep for mama!), and then realized that she can move her head just fine so I was freaking out about nothing.

  14. These kinds of boats are specifically designed to do this task.

    The Cabo San Lucas Country Club and Cabo Real Country Club are other popular golf courses in Los Cabos.
    Each green will also have some positions which are harder to
    approach and these would often be reserved for competition play.

  15. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I
    stumbleupon on a daily basis. It will always be
    interesting to read content from other writers and practice a
    little something from other sites.
