The other day I shared that we went to Maine last weekend. I was nervous about Lola's first nights away from home. She's on a pretty good schedule and sometimes doesn't even wake up in the middle of the night to eat. But it's always a bit nerve-wracking to change-up the routine. Especially when the routine is still only 8 weeks old! But anyway! The first morning we woke up to snow and built a snowman! We spent the rest of the weekend hanging out at the house with Sean's parents, making and eating yummy food, keeping Javi occupied with toys and games and making sure both Javi and Lola got all the love from their grandparents who recently sold their house that was within 2 minutes of ours to move 3.5 hours away in Maine! … [Read more...] about Life lately + pictures from Maine.
It's been a while since one a "life lately" post -- so here goes: We started the week off with a Superbowl loss but that didn't stop the little ones from sporting their gear. Javi has been interested in football and even more interested in Tom Brady. He was really nervous about the hand injury. :) Javi had a short week at school because of snow and Sean's travels. I think he enjoyed the extra time at home. :) Lola started working out! AKA tummy time. She's not totally sold on the whole thing yet, but hopefully she comes around! We stayed at my parent's house for three nights while Sean was away in Florida. We ventured to the mall Saturday morning. Lola eats every 2-3 hours so … [Read more...] about Life Lately.
One of my favorite things about blogging is jotting down memories of every day little occurrences. Some people do this in a diary, or through Facebook statuses. But I prefer this way. So here's our weekend INCLUDING a donut recipe. Because donuts were part of our weekend. :) Actually they're a part of every weekend... Friday morning: Sean took Friday off so we could attend Javi's winter celebration at school. Among the singing, dancing and the potluck we (as parents) were given a special gift from Javi. My heart melted. Friday night: Sean and I went to the drive-in to see Star Wars. Most likely it was our final date night before baby #2 arrives. I think I should totally get some extra wife points for … [Read more...] about Our weekend + a donut recipe
November was definitely a busy month! Between work and family, Sean's trip to Florida, Thanksgiving and Black Friday, doctor appointments and getting weekly iron infusions, a trip to Maine, getting the nursery ready and being spoiled with a Sprinkle, dental surgery for one of our cats, painting and renovating a bathroom, a weeknight Macklemore concert plus typical seasonal colds and illnesses -- I'm exhausted. Truly. Just exhausted. I'm thankful that tomorrow marks my last day of work and that soon I'll be home on maternity leave. I wanted to share some pictures from our month because I think I slacked in the actual documentation. Javi had some big milestones this month, too! From another haircut, to decorating sugar cookies for … [Read more...] about Snapshots from November + Life Lately.
Our weekend: We had a very low-key weekend in comparison to our last few ones. On Saturday morning I had to work but then we went to my cousin's daughter's first birthday party! It was a lot of fun and it's so nice to see Javi with children YOUNGER than him. It rarely happens since we don't know many kids younger than 2! But Javi thoroughly enjoyed his time with little Charlie and warmed up to her very quickly. He was a little jealous of the "happy birthday" song being sung to her but the cupcakes truly made up for it in his mind. ha. :) On Sunday, I stayed in bed most of the day, and Javi had a day with gramma! Sean was busy painting the new baby's room (!) and it should be finished by the end of the week! I can't wait to set … [Read more...] about Our weekend + the week ahead.
Here's a little life and pregnancy update: This blurry picture is the one I took while we were waiting at the doctor's office. We brought him in for a bad diaper rash (poor guy!) but turns out he has strep throat! We didn't even know. I thought all his symptoms were teething-related. Yikes. I spent my afternoon at the Dana Farber center getting iron through an IV. No matter how much iron I'm taking (and trust me, it's a lot!) my levels keep going down. The doctors think my dizziness and fatigue and shortness of breath is related to my anemia. So, iron IV it is! I have to go back once a week for the next 5 weeks so that hopefully the numbers go up before delivery. Last week, we noticed Artemis' front tooth was hanging on … [Read more...] about Life Lately + Pregnancy Update.
