Happiest Friday!! I wasn’t sure if these last weeks of pregnancy would go faster or slower now that I am home, but this week has flown by. In the best kind of way. Other than all the much-needed rest & extra time with Waverly, there is definitely something to be said for not having to rush out the door by 6:30 every morning (& it’s not just the fact that I can actually stay up past 8 at night, though that’s pretty damn amazing in itself). I absolutely adore my mornings at home, they are some of my happiest moments each day & even though I know they are about to be turned upside down, I will never take them for granted.
No matter how chaotic they get. 😉
We have spent a lot of our week running errands, getting last-minute things for baby sister since I am full-term in two days (& freaking out just a little bit)! 🙂 I finally got my breast pump, which I had been putting off forever, I’m sure other breastfeeding moms can relate, I really hate that thing but know I can’t live without it. We got this one & my insurance covered it 100%. We also got a new video monitor, a double one so we can watch both girls in their rooms & I am so excited about it. I can’t believe we waited this long to be able to spy on Waverly, we set it up last night & I felt like a total creeper but loved every second of knowing what goes down in there after I leave. I have a feeling this is about to get really entertaining!!
In other news, we had a couple play dates with some little ones, and celebrated Cinco de Mayo with the cutest festive dress & taco dinner with friends.
The weather has been pure perfection, spring at its finest, I took Waverly to the beach & we lasted longer than we have since she was born! This time of year is the best since it’s still cool enough to not be uncomfortable & we pretty much have all the sand to ourselves. If it wasn’t for the walk down there (which I’m pretty sure could have put me into labor on its own), we would literally go every day until baby girl decides to arrive.
My mom & sister both sent me this article
this week, if you haven’t read it and you have a toddler, it’s a definite must-read. I couldn’t relate to it more, I’m sure it’s the hormones, but it had me in tears thinking that Waverly really knows more about me than anyone else right now. Is it too much to hope that she will always want to be my BFF?!!
Lastly, I want to wish all of you a Happy Mother’s Day weekend!! I follow some of the most inspiring moms I know & I couldn’t be more thankful or think that you are all more than deserving of a relaxing weekend all about YOU! Enjoy every minute! XO
