Week(end) Highlights

Happy Monday friends, hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Life lately for us has been so much fun, hectic & busy, but fun!  I thought I would share some highlights of the past week & weekend, I know I have said it before, but I am so grateful to have this space to record all of these special memories.  I hope the girls will love looking back at it one day!  Also, I literally can't stop taking pictures of these two, I thought it was hard before with just one little lady, now it's just double the cuteness & I seriously have issues. ;)

Mornings are probably our craziest time right now, it's when Waverly is extra wild after sleeping for so long & when Avalon is most alert.  I sometimes get really overwhelmed with getting all of us dressed & breakfast made, all while keeping Waverly from smothering Avalon, it's seriously crazytown for a good hour straight.  Yet it's always full of some of the most precious moments. The other morning Avalon started crying & Waverly came sprinting to her, yelling "I'm coming for you sweet girl".  She got there & started rubbing her head, Avalon looked at her with the widest eyes and immediately stopped.  Such sweet sisters!  Of course, the next time Avalon started crying Waverly looked at me & said "turn her off", but I'll take what I can get. ;)


Now that it's almost six weeks since Avalon's birth, I am able to work out again & OMG, I need it. I've been trying to fit in a little exercise whenever I can, all while getting all of us out of the house in the mornings so we can break up our day some.  Lately we have been to the park a few times (Waverly pushes her baby while I push mine), & then our big trip, to the beach.  I pushed Waverly in the stroller while wearing Avalon in the solly, it was a long, hot walk, but I got some cardio in & the girls loved it once we made it.
A win-win for everyone. :)


And we made a trip to the farmers market with daddy!  I have really been trying to fit in some fun, different summer activities for Waverly, we've got the waterpark & beach down but I knew my big girl would love walking around and looking at all the sights at the farmers market.  She had a blast eating her way through all the little shops, I can't wait to take her back again soon!


And now, it's another Monday & we have a busy week ahead.  A couple doctor's appointments, dance class, & planning some details for Waverly's birthday party in two weeks!  I can't believe I will have a three year old so soon!  Hope you all have the best week.
XO

  9. So cute! My brother wanted to throw me out in the garbage when I was a baby, so just asking her to turn her off is loving in comparison ;). I love that name blanket you have for Avalon too!

  10. The matching strollers, I'm dying!! Mia is going to looooove pushing her baby while I push mine! Thank heavens it will finally start to cool down around here after he's born!
    Getting back into working out after having a baby is so hard, but so worth it! You go, momma!!
    Love your fun weekend! I seriously hope I can be like this once baby brother comes!

  11. These girls are seriously too precious together. Love the matching strollers! Mornings are our busiest too. Justo being 5 minutes to jump in the shower without worrying if Lily is going to accidentally smother her brother is our biggest morning feature. By the time everyone is ready for the day, I'm pretty much exhausted & wanting a nap. Ha!

  12. Your girls are so sweet together! And Liam is so similar to Waverly in his big brothering. One minute he'll call Finn down with a sweet song while holding his hand, and the next he'll scream about how the crying is hurting his ears, ha!
