I’ve seen these types of posts floating around the blogosphere and thought now was the perfect time to join the party. Nothing quite summarizes our past week like the most recent photos on my phone, so that’s what we’re chatting about today.
#1: Adeline & Construction Paper Crafts
I don’t have a single “teacher” bone in my body but it occurred to me that preschool appropriate crafts and activities can literally be done by anyone and with a little help from Pinterest, I could probably whip up a few fun ones. So, I bought a giant pack of construction paper and the past few evenings have been made exponentially better simply by keeping her engaged this way, rather than turning the TV on. If anyone would be interested in me sharing which activities we’ve done so far, I’d be happy to share. Her favorites have been making a jack-o-lantern, alphabet tree, her name letter stickers, and counting cheerios.
#2: Barrett Canvases
I finally ordered some photos for B’s nursery, including two large canvases. I love how they turned out, and they complete his little space in the most perfect way. The smaller canvas is B at just 5 hours old, and the larger canvas was about 12 days old. I love them both so much!
#3: Mom Paraphernalia
I spotted this mug at Hobby Lobby and told Santa I would like it in my stocking, please. I don’t know about you, but I have been loving all of the cute MOM stuff floating around – hats, t-shirts, jewelry, etc. I love my Motherhood + Apple Pie “Madre” shirt, and I’ve got a sweet mama necklace picked out from a jeweler I follow on Instagram for Christmas. I also saw a t-shirt with a gorgeous hand-drawn design on it that said, “Into motherhood I go, to lose my mind and find my soul” and I’m pretty sure I NEED IT! This is also from an Instagram shop, and I’m seriously debating ordering it!
#4: Casual Sweatshirts
The whole athleisure trend is speaking my love language, and I’ll never tire of it. Yoga pants + sweatshirts make me a happy camper. It’s been years though since I’ve purchased any NEW casual athleisure wear, other than something to actually workout in. I recently picked up some new things though and I’ve been living in them nonstop. Perfect for mom life and working from home! I grabbed THIS grey and white stripe hoodie from Target, as well as the light pink color. And THIS sweatshirt from Old Navy.
#5: Couch Time With Both Babes
We’ve gotten into a routine of hanging out on the playroom couch after I pick up A from school and the past few days B has passed out on me after he eats. So, we turn on a fun movie or Youtube video and A unwinds and snuggles with us while we wait for Daddy to finish up. It’s one of my favorite parts of the day.
#6: Growing Baby Boy
He’s SO BIG! He takes up my entire lap now, makes my arms hurt, and is barely squeezing into his 3 month jammies! AH!
#7: Long Walks
Yesterday I was able to get out and walk for almost an hour while B slept! It felt so good to walk for a LONG time rather than just 30 minutes or so. Later that day I also surpassed 10,000 steps for the first time in forever, so yay for that! I’m starting to get that itch to get back in the gym, and I can’t wait!! As soon as B gets started in daycare, and we re-figure out our routine, I’m planning on getting started. Bring it on!
