Yay for a great night of sleeping and a great day of napping!!
We were up at 7 today and met our new friend Kipton for a refreshing morning walk! One hour and about 3 miles later, we were off to a great start to the day.
Post-walk breakfast was a bowl of greek yogurt topped with Autumn Spice Granola, banana, pumpkin butter and Barney Butter.
And Shenandoah Joe’s Ethiopian Decaf – my new favorite coffee!!
Today was stuff n save day at Old Navy and 40% off for those with Old Navy/GAP/Banana cards, so we braved the outing to look for a few items for me (a new fleece, 2 shirts and 2 pairs of “transitional” jeans to act as a placeholder between maternity jeans and my old lot. I was blessed with a great napping baby while I tried on a few things!
Sadly they were completely wiped out of 0-3 month boy baby clothes (they whole reason why I went – not my wardrobe!) but I did get this great shirt for Matt : )
After we were home and one of us was fed and napping again in the swing (yay!), I acted fast to try to minimize lunch prep time so I could maximize eating time.
This lunch took me literally 3 minutes to put together thanks to prep I did earlier: hard-boiled some eggs, chopped some veggies, spiced pecans and purchased pre-washed greens.
Baby kale, pepper, carrot (I can’t even describe how much I like carrots after a 9-month hiatus!), spiced pecans and Annie’s Woodstock dressing.
This pear looks sad, but I promise he was happy!
And some AB + AB (almond + apple butter! This reminds me of algebra).
This afternoon I was able to get some work done and then we did lots of playing!
Bath, jammies and a smile!
Storytime. The Hungry Caterpillar is likely my favorite children’s book. Because I love how after he eats all the junk food he has a “salad” the next day. That’s called balanced eating!
Late afternoon snack (plus a handful more mini wheats from the bag! I also put some in my nightstand for midnight feeding snacks. They are so fun to eat as a finger food).
Matt was in charge of dinner while I fed Maze.
We had a sautéed harmony of tofu and eggplant tossed in olive oil and pesto and then cooked in a pan.
Along with another combo of green beans + shrooms in Worcestershire and garlic.
And Cheddddar Garlic bread!!
I need to be going because my eyes are nearly wide shut…
OH but one more thing – Happy Birthday Larbs!!!
