Today was a really good day. Mazen and I had lots of fun together, we had minimal chaos around the house and a really long morning nap! We got in a fun bath with daddy before work, a long walk in the BOB, delicious meals, a visit to our friends Jen and Baby M and dinner out with more friends!
Bath time to start.
Followed by breakfast for us both
The last of my baked pumpkin oatmeal. Today it was topped with sunflower butter, natural sprinkles (chias), fake sprinkles (leaves) and white sprinkles (coconut).
Sunflower butter in honor of our Trader Joe’s grand opening!! Can’t wait to go. I decided to sit out opening day, but maybe next week they will have restocked all the good stuff!
M and I played this morning. I can’t get over how much his toys are his friends!
And here is evidence of that super long TWO HOUR nap! I was so impressed. One of his longest ever! Half of it was spent in my arms as I gazed down at him. I transferred him after a bit and he kept on sleepin’.
After our walk, I had a quick lunch. I knew I had about 20-30 minutes until he was ready for his, so I threw this together and dove in!
The highlight was Food Should Taste Good chips (the best!) that were delivered in a #simplesurvivalkit care package to my doorstep from friends at multiple brands, including FSTG, Larabar, Justin’s nut butter and more!
Plus spinach, roasted squash, lentils, beans, and white cheddar.
M did end up needing me during lunch, and I finished with him sitting on my lap. He is definitely not a newborn anymore!
I was still hungry after that (and more chips) so I added an apple. I think exercise + breastfeeding is really catching up with me these days.
We went out running errands this afternoon, including new mom delivery #2. Loved see sweet Baby M and her mommy. We also went to the car dealership. SO close to buying one!
This evening we went to Jenn, Jamie and
baby toddler L’s house for dinner. So sweet of them to invite us over.
Would you believe that I forgot my camera!?!??!!? That has almost never happened in the 5 years I’ve been blogging. Thankfully Jenn had an SLR that she let me borrow (and I’m kind of in love with their lens!)
We sipped Matt’s pumpkin beer and ate cheese and crackers before dinner
And then dined on delicious turkey meatballs with cranberry sauce (!!), mashed potatoes, Asian green beans and cheddar garlic bread.
I went back for more cranberry sauce. Love that stuff!!
Jenn just wrote that when toddler L said his goodnights he said “goodnight mommy…goodnight daddy…goodnight Mazen.” So sweet!
Goodnight blog friends!
