Tuesday night was amazing – in contrast to the previous 2 nights at home, he slept for THREE HOURS STAIGHT …..twice!! I couldn’t believe it when I woke up a few times to find him still peacefully snoring next to me. I wonder if my quality over quantity strategy was effective? He certainly does seem to be nursing a bit better in the past 24 hours.
But if I’ve learned one bit of advice from other moms it’s that you can’t rely on anything – so I’m sure this was just a bit of good luck : ) Maybe he was as tired from the weekend of labor + delivery as I was.
I took him to Matt when we woke up and took a really, really long hot shower. Put on make-up and dried my hair – we had a special newborn photo shoot scheduled!!
Quick bowl of cereal to start –
Raisin bran, granola sprinkle, berries, milk, chia seeds
The fabulously talented and fun Sarah Cramer came over and we had a smashing morning around the house –
A sneak peak!! I am so, so, so glad we decided to do a newborn shoot! As camera happy as our household is, there is nothing like a professional to get those perfect moments captured as beautifully as possible.
Sadly Matt had to go into work for a while, so we were on our own for lunch. But we had a fridge full of leftovers to use up!
I had a mixture of last night’s Thai food and a big bottle of water. The breastfeeding thirst has set in!
In the afternoon, I wore the babe while I worked on my computer for a bit and then had visits from two friends – Lynsie and Alice! Lynsie brought us dinner (see below) and Alice brought me some Guinness and some mom advice : )
I squeezed in about 1/4 of a nap somewhere in here.
When Matt got home I was starving and pinned to the couch, and he presented me with a brand new Apple Cheddar Scuffin – hot. It was INCREDIBLE! Just what I needed. I had a glass of milk too!
Then we packed up the peanut and went for a walk –
Just a short one… in the Bugaboo! It was so fun to push!! He did really well in it until he got really hungry at the end of our visit.
Down to the farmer’s market! Matt has made friends with so many of the vendors and couldn’t wait to show Maze to them. I’ve also been going down pregnant the last few weeks and it was so fun to have the baby outside this time : )
We talked to him about the importance of a colorful diet : )
Back home, we opened that Guinness, famous for it’s milk supply boost , to share.
And headed up Lynsie’s dinner –
This meal was so generous and wonderful – it tasted incredible!
Chicken with pesto pasta and baby kale salad
Baby face. I hate eating dinner because it means he has to sit separately!
And some blondie from the bakery for dessert
What day of the week is it!?
