Happy Friday!! It’s hard to believe that we one only have one week of April left, or that my maternity leave officially begins next Friday! This year is flying by, I definitely can’t keep up!
It’s been a week full of sunshine for us, we have spent most of our afternoons outside soaking it all in! We unfortunately found a warm weather staple that Waverly does not love, she has an overwhelming fear of the ice cream man & is not ashamed to show it. If she even hears the music in a distance, she bolts to me, leaps in my arms, & will hide her face until I somehow convince her that he is gone. Part of me loves that she is scared of the random stranger in the truck, while the other part is seriously sad that I can’t go get one of those red, white & blue bomb pops (you know the ones, right?!).
While we were outside the other afternoon, the ice cream man couldn’t be heard, thankfully, Waverly was running after our dog & fell. She was pretty upset about it, & there was a small red mark, but she usually recovers pretty quickly so I figured this would be no different. That was until thirty minutes later, when she had to call everyone in my phone to tell them that “she had broke her leg”. My husband was lucky enough to get a ten minute voicemail about it, including a description of why she could no longer walk (right before she was running through the backyard pushing her babies in their stroller). For the record, I have no idea where she gets her dramatics from. 😉
Warm weather fashions are my favorite, it is so much easier to pick out clothes when they don’t involve layers upon layers. I’ve had my eye on so many pretty spring & summer dresses for both my girls lately, this one is currently on it’s way & I can’t wait! And I was so excited that I was able to squeeze this one on Waverly for one more wear before we pass it on to baby sister (similar here). I love, love white on little girls & I am obsessed with anything embroidered, so this piece is definitely one of my all-time favorites.
In food news, I am craving all things sweet right now, & basically only eating meals to get to the dessert. I’m pretty sure I mentioned this cake last year around this time, it is seriously the most amazing thing ever & too perfect for this time of year! Waverly helped me make it this time, it’s so easy (which is another reason I love it) so it’s definitely toddler-friendly! 🙂
The ingredients are angel food cake (I just buy one already made), sherbert, vanilla ice cream & cool whip. Take chunks of the cake & put in a cake pan, then pour the melted ice cream & sherbert on top before putting it the freezer. After about an hour, take it out & cover with the cool whip, then put it back in the freezer until it’s completely frozen. Seriously, it’s so, so
My parents got Waverly a trampoline for Christmas & she has loved it ever since, but now that we can actually use it more, I’ve decided that it is the best thing has ever happened to us (besides the girls). We don’t go a single day without using it, Waverly will jump for what feels like forever, & then some more. Best toddler entertainment ever, & perfect for tiring them out for bedtime!
We are crossing our fingers that the weather stays warm the next couple of days, we have our family maternity pictures this weekend! I hope to share some good ones soon! Wishing you a very happy one!

Let me know how you like those monitors! We need to find a double because there's no way I can live without a video monitor for both kids after having one for Mia!
Waverly's bikini kills me! Wish we could go play at the beach with you!

Ok, so full term in 2 days! Eek! And Waverly's little Cinco dress is too cute for words, kinda like her little bikini! 🙂 Happy Friday!
YAY FUN STUFF!!!! and adorable clothes! Where do you go to the beach where it's so empty, those pictures of lil W are so precious.
Oh my husband and I just read that article last night and thought it was so funny about the cream being her mom's.. if my husband even touches my coffee cup Rae says, "no mommy's cocke cup" haha and walking in the sand will be a sure way to put you into labor… i hate doing it even now lol
I love mornings too. They really are the best. Full term, wow!! I bet you're dying to meet your girl 🙂 Happy Mothers Day, enjoy!
Hope you have the best Mother's Day weekend! and get SPOILED ROTTEN!! Love you friend! Been thinking of you! xoxo
My parents just sent us a video monitor and I can NOT wait to use it!! I'm totally considering testing it out on Abigail first just to make sure it works :p
I think time is flying. Each day that passes it's like- what?! Our girls are going to be here SO soon.
I can't believe we are both almost done with our second pregnancies!! It's crazy how fast this one has gone by! I love the pictures from the beach. I sure wish we had a beach closer to us!

Oh, the beach looks like so much fun! If only we could just walk down to the beach.. if we could, I'm sure I would put myself into labor because spending time at the beach is one of my favorites! I'm so glad you are enjoying your leave and are cherishing your days. They are so wonderful! Happy Mother's Day to you!
Such cute pictures!! Happy Mother's Day weekend!! xoxo
You guys didn't have any sort of monitor with just Waverly? I know it sounds like a super creeper, but I LOVE spying on Mason and seeing what he's doing in there. Seriously, he does some of the funniest things when he thinks he's alone 🙂
Happy, happy Mother's Day!
those beach pictures 🙂 too cute!!
