Today has been a GREAT day and it’s not even over with yet! Not every day goes really well. I mean, it has potential to somehow get ruined but lets hope it stays awesome *knocks on wood*.
I started my day out with my workout which was easy and much appreciated since I had a really bad sore neck the past week and today it’s finally 90% better. Once home I hung out with Levi (duh) and he took a two hour nap! I was able to watch a movie, Kindergarten Teacher on Netflix, and clean the house up a bit. Once he woke up we went to Ulta and Old Navy since I had to pick up a few things. It was my second outing with him by myself! Don’t judge me, either. Most of the time when we go do errands Jesse’s just always around and wants to tag along so we always do everything together, which I love by the way. Once we got home I played with Levi some more, gave him a bath, went through some of his old clothes, and now he’s down for his second nap of the day! I’m feeling really good mentally and I love it.
Last night I was so sad, almost to tears sad, that I had to essentially go back to our scheduled routine this week. I just wanted to be with my family some more before getting back to the work week. Sunday was so nice and I enjoyed our day together a lot. We went on a morning hike/walk with my really close friend and her boyfriend and dog. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m pretty much a home body or I just really prefer to be with my family on my day off because I feel like I never have enough time with them so hanging out with my friend for a little while was really nice. I actually want to do a little girls trip with a few other friends of mine and we’ve talked about it and are all down to do it! I think it would be so fun and much needed for all of us.
So anyways, while Levi is napping right now I have to just say that I’m freaking obsessed with him and how good of a baby he is. He’s just always happy! I mean, he has his fussy moments but they’re never a big deal really. We’ve been doing pretty good with the purees lately but I did buy some jarred baby food just to add flavors that I don’t have at home. I’m so curious on when to try peanut butter so if anyone has any advice let me know! This whole feeding thing is still confusing to me at times. I’m just going back and forth between Pinterest and my baby food book that I have. He’s sitting up so good now with hardly any assistance. He still loves going on walks and watching cars drive by, which is the cutest thing in the world. His hair still growing but still hasn’t flattened out completely so it just looks like fuzz still, haha. We’ve been doing a lot more tummy time to get him to want to crawl! Have I mentioned that I’m terrified of him becoming mobile?? Like, what am I going to do! My boy is growing up so much and my heart can’t take it!
Last week was a tiring, painful (due to my neck/upper back), but also really good week. I know I’m making progress with the weight loss as some jeans I wear often that I bought when I needed to buy bigger jeans are starting to become a bit looser on me. Things are happening, people! I already see a difference in my stomach. For a while I felt like I still looked 6 months preggo and it’s finally going down. I’ve been eating a cleaner diet and I think it’s working. I still have my bad days of course but I try not to beat myself up about it because there’s no point in doing that.
I’m starting to get really excited about my east coast trip that’s coming up in January! You might be thinking we’re crazy to visit the east coast during January, because I thought we were crazy, too. It’s going to be really fun and it’s going to be SO hard to leave Levi for several days so I’m hoping I don’t cry too much but I’m looking forward to spend time with Jesse. Something I love about us is that we travel. It might not be as often or as far as other couples but traveling is something we love to do together. We love experiencing new places together and new food! It’s always about the food for me, haha.
OH YEAH! Here’s some baby halloween pictures. He was sooooo cute! The costume didn’t fit so well because he’s a chunk but we got the cutest pictures of him! Enjoy 🙂
