I love weekends … even more so with a baby! They feel longer because I wake up earlier, which may seem less than ideal, but it is totally worth waking up to those chubby little cheeks. And we get so much more done with that extra time! It had become kind of the norm for me to leave the weekend feeling like it was totally unproductive, which isn’t a great feeling. At least this weekend, I’m feeling very productive and fulfilled! PLUS we get to play with Monica all day. No one from DCF is calling, and Monica is having a blast. Some highlights:
Crawling practice … Still not quite there yet, but she has the hands part down now. She just crawls out until she runs out of length from her shoulders to her knees, then does the lunge and roll. Progress!
We took our first trip to the park yesterday. Monica loved the swing, she found it hilarious. We tried to test out the splash pad and the slide (on E’s lap), but neither were a big hit. It was a nice walk and little activity, but there’s not much to do at the playground for a “pre-walker.”
Not pictured: Fun visit with Aunties M and K, another fun visit with Aunties J and S, and a looong walk (slash nap) around the pond with our awesome neighbors. Weekends are the bomb. Can tomorrow please not be Monday?
