TGIF, friends!! I really wanted to thank you for your encouragement on our first trip without Waverly this weekend & also, for relating on our crazy (yet oh so lovable!) toddlers. Once again, this community is so supportive & I am so thankful! We are excited to have some time apart from toddler tantrums, runny noses, & bibs, but even more excited to reunite with her belly laughs & impressive dance moves when we get back. 😉
In the meantime, I felt like one of these posts were due, there is so much out there to love right now!
1. A new donut shop opened about five minutes from our house a few months ago, it has kind of changed our life. 😉 They are those kind of donuts that are hot when you get them & pretty much melt in your mouth, I don’t know if I have ever tasted anything better. We go at least once a week, yet I do have to (unfortunately) admit that while I take a bite or two, I (sadly) go with the healthy breakfast sandwich option instead. Way less exciting for sure, but way better for my waistline. These two, however, take down about half a dozen on their own. I can’t decide who likes them more.
2. We still have some work to do before it is complete, but Waverly’s updated, big-girl room is coming together! I ordered these curtains
& am so anxious for them to get here, I know they will make a big difference. I did end up ordering the black-out panel
to put behind them, the ones she has now are like that so I definitely didn’t want to make any major, major changes. 😉
3. Kind of like I have a shopping addiction, my husband feels the same way about fishing. Even though Waverly is a girl, he is convinced they have many, many boat dates in their future (I’m sure she will be down). We randomly took her down to our park for her first fishing adventure the other evening, she was so into it & of course, the first bite came when SHE was holding the pole. It was too cute, she couldn’t stop staring at the fish & then when we went to throw it back in the water, she said “night, night fishy!”.
4. Waverly’s eating habits are kind of random & unpredictable lately, some days she eats all day & others, I can’t force her to take a bite. I decided to try out the lunch in muffin tins idea, she loves it! We have pretty much been doing this every day for the last couple of weeks, she gets really upset if we use a normal plate! I’m thinking of using some holiday versions in the upcoming months?!
And I have to share, after a rough few days, Waverly of course melted my heart once again. I had put her to bed the other night, she layed down, (just like every other night) & was quiet for about twenty minutes. All of a sudden she started calling for me, which occasionally happens but usually she quickly quiets down. This time, “mommy” turned to “mommy, come sing to me”, & then “ASHLEY, please sing to me!”. I mean, how could I resist? So I held her & sang for about 15 minutes (best 15 minutes ever), then told her that we were all going to sleep so we could be ready for the next day. She nodded & laid right down to go to sleep, which she did for the rest of the night. I just couldn’t love her more.
HAPPIEST weekend, everyone!
