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!
