Happy Monday, hope you all had a wonderful weekend & are having a great start to the week! Our first weekend of a family of four was a busy one, which seemed fitting since that just seems to be life these days. 🙂 Waverly had her first dance recital, I had been looking forward to it since she started dance months ago & thought the timing of it was perfect, with so much going on, she deserved a day all about her! I had to miss the dress rehearsal the weekend before since I was in the hospital, yet luckily in all the craziness, my mom & sister managed to get her there, dressed in her costume, which got her completely excited for the real thing.
We got up early the day of her recital to take a family trip to Target for her to pick out her own red lipstick & a prize for after her dance was done (she chose Frozen & Elsa band-aids, but was definitely more excited about the band-aids), and then headed home to do her hair, make-up, & put on her glittery costume.
Basically all of my girl mama dreams come true.
I was a little nervous about how she would do in the show, she is much younger than the other girls in her class, some of them are even five, but ultimately I was so incredibly proud of her. She walked right out on stage & did (most) of the moves for both dances, plus she stayed backstage the entire time & I didn’t even get an emergency “come get your kid” call from one of the stage moms. 😉 I am so glad I put her in dance, it really has helped her become more independent & though it’s a little bittersweet that she is old enough for all of this, my heart could really have burst while watching her.
We spent the rest of our weekend at the pool trying to stay cool, we took the girls to my grandparents so that Waverly could swim while Avalon slept & ate inside in the AC. So far, our littlest lady is such a good sleeper, we really can’t believe it since Waverly never did this, even in her first couple of weeks. We have yet to find a place she doesn’t love to rest & just keep reminding ourselves to enjoy this time while it lasts. 🙂
And just like that, it’s Monday & daddy is back to work (which seems to feel a little more painful now that we have two). My mom & I took the girls for their first trip to the mall this morning, it took a couple hours for me to get all three of us out the door to meet her, but overall, it was a win! 🙂 Waverly did so well & kept peeking her little face in the stroller to tell Avalon, “we are girlfriends forever, you are just like me”.
Seriously, they slay me.
Happy week ahead!
