Aaah Friday, we made it to the weekend! This was my first official week back to work since I started my maternity leave last May (four months total!), a week I have been looking forward to & nervous about all at the same time. Overall, it went really well and I think this part-time thing is going to be good for all of us! We have some things to get used to, (1), Avalon & the bottle, we are now two for two on our breastfed babies wanting nothing to do with bottles, (2), getting two kids logistically ready for a day without both of us, do people really do this with more than two kids?, and they deserve a medal!, & (3), that damn awful pump. It turns out I hate it just as much this time as last time. Yet we had so many positives, both girls did great, Waverly was sure to tell me that she “took care” of Avalon when I wasn’t there. I am so glad that they have each other! As for me, it was actually nice to have a reason to get ready. Plus, one day I even ate my entire lunch (at one time) AND found the time to pee (alone!).
Other highlights of the week included Avalon’s new rolls & cutest ever dimple! She is so, so close to rolling over and laughing out loud, I know it is going to come any minute (maybe together?), we are just so head over heels in love with her. We took Waverly to the splash pad and for a little nature walk, I think she is going to have serious summer withdrawals in the upcoming months, girl likes a swimsuit! And lastly, Waverly has had a couple rough threenager moments as of late, but (almost) made us forget all of it with how sweet she is with her little sis. She pulled her close & whispered, “I love you sooooooo much, Avalon, you are MY little sister”.
Before I sign off for the weekend, a couple of favorites!
I’m totally in planning mode with fall upon us, my co-worker introduced me to Erin Condren planners, am I the last to find about these? Has anyone tried them? They look amazing!
I recently got these overalls & love them, so cute and ridiculously comfortable. I also came across this denim jumpsuit that I can’t stop thinking about, it would be so versatile all fall long!
Wishing you the happiest holiday weekend!
