Despite some trouble with naps in the AM, we had a great day on Friday! I again felt well rested, and breastfeeding seems to have turned a corner. My little baby bird has learned to open his mouth wide in anticipation and the pain has subsided…..for the most part…but not totally.
For breakfast I made un-overnight oats, which is just the same ingredients put together in 5 minutes.
Yogurt, milk, oats, chia seeds, berries, cinnamon, granola and sunbutter, all mixed together.
The texture is much soupier than overnight oats, but the flavors are just as fun!
I’ve been able to shower daily thanks to extra hands and bouncy seats. Once Mazen went down for a nap, I hopped in with an ear peeking out of the curtain and was able to get dressed for the day no problem. Too bad I was covered in breast milk an hour later!!
We had a fun morning of eat, play, sleep with a few cries here and there and then a late lunch when dad came home.
I had leftovers from Lynsie’s dinner – herby chicken over kale salad with noodles, tomato, pine nuts and a rosemary garlic roll. It’s been wonderful to have some dinners brought to us and equally wonderful to have the leftovers for quick lunches!
Our newborn shoot photos are here. Sarah Cramer did a FANTASTIC job capturing so many sweet moments! I’ll try to throw a few into each post for a few days – I can’t choose a favorite!
Ok this might be a favorite : ) Love the bike pillow from Etsy in the background!
Dinner was a wonderful treat from Auntie Faith!
She brought us some little lasagnas with Monticello eggplant, homemade ricotta and a rich tomato sauce.
Plus side salads. And since they were Faith salads, they were the best ever! She puts some extra love in all of her greens.
I was able to get in a nap early evening because we had to stay up late (= 8:30) to greet Aunt Larbs and Uncle Matt!!
They drove up for the weekend with my mom for a visit
And brought a birthday cake!! We all went bonkers over how delicious this was.
Between the 6 of us, we finished nearly the whole thing. It’s all in the frosting!
Sweet dreams were had by all.
