Hi, all! Happy hump day!! I am sitting here enjoying a (third) cup of coffee while the little one naps. My breastfeeding/pumping journey has officially ended, and my coffee consumption is back to an all time high.
I wanted to update you all with life lately, and what better way to do that than with coffee? Haha!
We took baby on our annual apple picking date and had a blast with her.
Comparison to her in my belly to her now!
Baby has been thriving in her bugs class, and stood up by herself (while holding onto the bars) yesterday. My 7 month old is a rockstar!!
She sleeps like a champ, and I am proud of our consistent bedtime routine.
She laughs constantly, and knows when she is being funny. I seriously adore this kid more than anything!
I could continue all day, but let’s move on.
The beginning baby stage was hard, as my husband and I were exhausted and figuring this parent thing out, but now that things have settled, I love him even more than I did on our wedding day. He is the best dad, husband, and provider I could ever ask for.
He always tells me that I’m beautiful (even when I am covered in vomit). Haha! These two love each other so much. Oh my heart!
We haven’t been out on a date in a while, but we do incorporate date nights at home. These include movies, board games, and cooking dates (we have had a blast with our Blue Apron and Hello Fresh meals).
That being said, our anniversary is coming up in October and we are planning on a fun night out!
We leave in a couple weeks for North Carolina, and I am so excited for the baby to see the ocean for the first time.
I have a slight ping of sadness, as we visit the Outer Banks, and hurricane Dorian hit hard this year.
Since having the little one, I can’t get to the gym like I used to, so I have to get creative at home.
I love running the baby outside! She gets to look around, and I get cardio and arm work pushing the stroller.
I also take advantage of the tons of YouTube videos (HIIT workouts, pure barre, etc.)
Carrying my little around all day is a workout itself!
Today is my sweet Maverick’s “gottya day.” We have had this little one for 5 years!
Last, but certainly not least, I am reflecting on this day 18 years ago. I was only in the 8th grade, but remember that day vividly. What a reminder to hug our loved ones a little tighter.
That’s about all for this coffee date, friends! Have a wonderful rest of your week!
