So much to tell you guys about! We had such a great long weekend! I’ve created a (good) habit of not touching the computer much on the weekends, so I haven’t put the posts together yet, but they’re coming!
PS. Does my daughter have a lazy eye?!
Scenes from the Weekend:
-Cleaned our place from top to bottom. Rearranged shelves, got rid of bags in our closet, cleaned out the diaper bag, sorted through too-small clothes (sad) and tidied up a bit.
-Went on several neighborhood walks to enjoy our beautiful weather (mid 60s! My favorite!) Warm enough to enjoy the sun, but cool enough to wear a comfy sweatshirt. Yes Please!
-Grocery Shopping (x2). I also chopped, cooked, sorted and prepped the food for the week ahead. I’m cooking for THREE now! Lots to think about in the kitchen, that’s for sure.
-Made a homemade lasagna.
-On that note, I also pureed Adele’s food for the week (Peas, Sweet Potato and Pears this week!)
-Went to the Library
-Babysat one of Adele’s friends! We’re doing babysitting trading for free
date-nights date-days and we’re so so so excited!
-Went to the park x2
-Did a “Mommy (and Daddy) and Me” class (I’ll share that with you this week! It was awesome!). Then the three of us went out to lunch after and I got the best BLTA I’ve ever eaten. Ever.
-Attempted to do our taxes. This didn’t go over so well with an 8-month old attention-hungry baby at our feet.
-Adele got her FIRST TOOTH! Finally!!!!!!!!
-We lowered Adele’s mattress. Now that she’s sitting, crawling and almost pulling herself to standing, it was time.
-Did 6 loads of laundry and 4 loads of dishes. Exhausting.
-Lots of bath time, reading time, skyping with family time and cuddle time.
-Watched a documentary with Irving during Sunday nap time! (Score: Adele slept for TWO HOURS mid-afternoon!)
-Celebrated a birthday with friends at Benihana! Adele loved watching the chefs cook. So fun!
-I made French Toast with Cinnamon Raisin bread. Delicious.
-Gave Adele yogurt for the first time. (She approved).
-Watched the finale of Downton Abbey. (OMG, who watched it? Don’t want to ruin it for anyone who hasn’t watched yet, but seriously, WHY DID THEY DO THAT?!)
-Oh, um, signed up for a Half Marathon. Here we go again! You can never fully cure a race addict. Good thing I have 8 months to train!
-Worked out with my LA Racers team (three miles with Adele!) Let the training begin!
Wow, seeing that list makes me tired. It felt like we got a ton done, but none of it felt like too much. It just flowed nicely. And having the extra day off doesn’t hurt either. We’re getting really good at packing it all in and making the weekends count. A little bit of work and a lot of play. It was a blast. More pictures from the past few days will be coming this week!
Wispy baby hair blowing in the wind is my favorite.
