Five On Friday

I’m linking up with A Little Bit of Everything, Grace And Love, and Momfessionals today!

One.
I’m trying really hard to lose the baby weight and just be healthier in general. Well I made some lactation cookies (recipe soon!) to help to keep my milk supply up. Cookies and diet do not mix well.

Two.
I’m so excited for the long weekend! BTR is going to a bachelor party this weekend so there’s one night where it will be just me and Jude. I’m a little nervous, but Jude is such a good baby it should be fine!

First Time Swimming

Yesterday we took Jude swimming for the first time and he loved it!

Did you know that the smallest size swim diapers come in is a 3-4? They were a little big, but still did the job! While it felt like a million degrees outside, the water was the perfect temperature and the pool was mostly in the shade.

It must have worn Jude out, because last night he fell asleep much earlier than normal! I think we might go again this afternoon because it’s so nice out!

Three.
Jude is rolling over all the time. I literally can’t turn around without him suddenly ending up on his belly! He enjoys tummy time so … read more

Favorite Things, Volume 1 – Newborn

I always love reading other peoples favorite things posts! I have so may different “favorites” I want to talk about, so I thought I would start with my favorite baby items! I’ll be breaking this down into multiple posts because let’s be honest, babies need lots of stuff! I’m not a baby expert by any means, but these are the things that got us through the first few weeks!

Another Saturday…

Today was just another Saturday, except it’s also the last Saturday before school/work starts for BTR! We ran a few errands to get lightbulbs, potting soil, and grain for BTR’s brew day tomorrow. More about home brewing in another post.

I needed potting soil because I’ve been wanting to fill these planters for such a long time! I bought them at Crate & Barrel a few years ago. We have a big square foot garden in a raised bed outside, but I wanted some basil for indoors when it gets cold outside. I also planted cilantro and lavender. I have this little tray on our kitchen table and figured I … read more
