Saturday night Matt was exhausted from getting up for the farmer’s market, so I was on baby duty the entire night. It was a long one – somebody decided to do some cluster feeding and fussing – but we got in sleep when we could. When I woke up and fed him at 7, I brought him to Matt (who had gotten 8 hours of blissful sleep) and we traded rooms so I could take a 1.5 hour nap.
When I woke up at 9:30, it was time to get ready for brunch!
I had a small snack to tide me over – yogurt with peach and sunflower seeds with honey.
I couldn’t wait to try out the stroller again!
Diaper bags and strollers have been an obsession of mine since I was a little girl and I am having so much fun using both in real life : )
Pushing my doll!
The walk was great – a crisp September morning!
Cville was hoppin’ with brunchers and our chalkboard wall had gotten some amazing designs overnight –
We wanted outdoor dining, so we settled in at Bizou –
Mazen wanted to eat first, so I fed him at the table under my cover. Now that breastfeeding is less painful, feeding him is getting easier.
Burp! His little burp face is like a little gorilla <3
Our meal was incredible and I couldn’t wait to get my hands…er mouth…on a big Belgian waffle!
This was sooooo good smothered in fresh fruit, whipped cream and maple syrup.
I got my protein fix from the yogurt from earlier and a few bites of Matt’s incredible eggs Florentine
Maze was well behaved
He slept some and played with his dad some
Back at home, Matt and I said farewell to my family and settled into an afternoon of laundry, trash disposal and naps. We did 4 loads of laundry – 2 beds to sleep in = double the linens! I also got in an hour nap that left me disoriented it was so long!
Also emptied our wet bag of diapers – that’s a lot of diapers! [Hoping to move to cloth maybe in about a month or so? Once we’re in a bit of a routine and he grows into their size.]
For dinner we reached into the freezer for one of my stocked meals – wild Alaskan salmon burgers. These come frozen from Whole Foods and were delicious on Rosemary Garlic rolls!
Really easy and very tasty!!
Served with some grilled peppers with sun dried tomato pesto
And grilled squash rubbed in olive oil and pesto from a tube
After our dinner and the baby’s, we went out for another walk!
It was FALL CHILLY outside and I wore a fleece!!! Amazing.
I am thrilled that [for now] Maze loves his stroller. He goes to sleep almost immediately, although I questioned if it’s fake sleep because the moment we get home and the jiggling stops he wakes right up!
