Whirlwind Weekend

This weekend was jam-packed from start to finish and now that it's over I don't know where the time went!? Friday was especially great because Jared and I got to go on our SECOND date since T's been born! My in-laws were sweet enough to come over after we put little man to bed and we were able to go out for a few hours. I'm still not ready for someone else to put my baby down for the night... is that weird?! Luckily, he's got an early bed time so we were able to go grab Mexican food and take our time at dinner. 

It feels like such a treat to sit down for long, uninterrupted conversation these days and I soaked in every second of it. After eating we shopped a little, grabbed our holiday Starbucks drinks and ended the night picking up a couple items at Kroger. That's a hot date if I ever heard of one ;)

Saturday was a blur of errands, cleaning, meal prepping and fiiiiinally getting a mani/pedi that evening! I've had a gift certificate since April and just haven't set aside the time to make it happen. It was amazing and much needed though. I went at a weird time so I had the whole place practically to myself and it was so relaxing... I could have stayed another hour!

Another thing I got into this weekend was making baby food for T. We started solids recently and I bought a few jars for him to try out first. I bought BeechNut naturals, for anyone curious; I liked those because it's just the fruit or veggie, no additives or anything weird. However, now that we've tried a few things and T seems to like it ALL I knew it would be more cost effective to make stuff at home. It's actually pretty fun so far, too! I might post more about it at another time if people are interested- I googled a lot and talked to a lot of other moms about their homemade baby food adventures which was super helpful.


Lots of productivity, a good mix of relaxation and of course lots of family play time sums up the past few days. I cherish the weekends with my little family so much. They always go way too fast, but all I can do is hang on and enjoy the ride. The days are crazy, we don't sleep enough and figuring out an ever-changing baby is hard work sometimes but I wouldn't have it any other way. My two boys are my world!

  1. We are leaving E overnight with my Dad for the first time in a few weeks and I'm super nervous and excited. I'm glad you guys were able to go enjoy some one on one time together.

    1. Good luck! I'm sure it only gets easier the more you do it, but it's taking me a long time to be okay with it ;)

  2. I loved making baby food for my kiddo! Once we got past the singles, I had to best time coming up with blends. Apples and pears with a dash of cinnamon was my favorite :) Better than regular applesauce!

  5. So awesome that you guys had a fun little date night. I think that is so important once you become parents to still focus on you too! I totally would love a post on homemade foods once you figure it all out! I am very interested in doing that as well. Have a great week!

  6. So glad you guys are able to get out! Still to this day at age 5 I hate someone else putting Bre to bed.

    Also how is he already starting solids?

  9. YAY for date nights! Also, fun story, I also bought that type of baby food when we were starting out, and Jack loved it. And then refused to eat any freaking baby food I ever made. So I had to keep buying the jars. At least it's natural, but still..way more expensive!

  10. Hooray for date nights with the hubs, especially when they involve Mexican food and Starbucks drinks! I haven't gotten a mani/pedi in forever either, but that might be something that I treat myself to this weekend!

  12. Funny you should say that about the uninterrupted time. Last weekend my stepsister came over for our family dinner but her hubby & baby stayed home and she's like this is weird not having anyone bothering me and actually getting to eat! Hope you enjoyed your bits of time together :)

  16. I never once thought to make Connor's baby good. He was never really a big fan of it and we did BLW much of the time because he just wanted real food to chump on.

  17. I honestly never made my son baby food! I bought a variety of organic jars and pouches and once we had gotten to the point where we had introduced enough he was interested in solids so we moved to BLW and he's been on table food ever since!

  18. I never made either of my beans baby food, but I love that you have! Spencer loved his pouches, Porter doesn't seem to have any interest at all yet haha

  19. So cool that you're making homemade baby food for him! I love that he loves trying everything, plus its nice you know EXACTLY what's going in it! No added junk!

    So glad you and Jared got a night out :)
