Basically, my life these days looks like this. First, I get ready, trying to find clothes that fit, and aren't too tricky to nurse in. It takes some serious effort to not feel like a total frumpy Mom, but I try, whether or not it works.
So, anyway.....I'm glad I wore that cardigan today.
We attended a baby shower this afternoon for a couple, who's expecting their first baby soon. This shower was really fun, and a little different because it was for couples. Of course, we brought our little side-kick Eliza with us. And we had a blast....literally.
Girlfriend deserves a prize. Not only did she cover herself up to her neck, but she also really got my shirt and my jeans. How does a tiny baby do that? Seriously, I even broke out my high heels today. Thankfully, I still sported the "Mom cardigan". Yep, I just buttoned that cardigan up, smiled and partied on, feeling thankful that I'd already hugged everyone. The Mom cardigan has so many uses these days... Oops, too long since the last feeding? Thank goodness for the cardigan. Left over baby tummy? Hello, cardigan. Epic blowout? Just button 'er up. Story of my life.
This weekend was also filled with lots of time outside, a wonderful wedding reception for our friend Nathalie and church. The days are getting longer and tonight after the kids were in bed, I stepped outside to pick peas. Summer evenings are my absolute favorite.
This weekend, we also headed to Target and Judah got to spend some of his "chore" money, that he's been working so hard to save.
Tell me about your life. What was the absolute highlight of your weekend? What did you do?
