This morning I woke up full of energy... maybe it has something to do with the fact that I spent the majority of the day out of the house yesterday. I had a little photo session in the morning, then I met up with my wonderful friend for breakfast and a day of watching movies, sewing and crafting, and I didn't come home until 8:30. I think it was the first real time I've spent out of the house in months! I grabbed my camera this morning and snapped some photos of our first hour, from 7am-8am...
This girl wakes up hungry! She generally has two eggs scrambled with cottage cheese and a whole wheat waffle or toast.
While Gigi eats breakfast, I start some laundry. I try to do one load a day and it's helpful for me to split our laundry up. Today was a G laundry day which consists of washing all of her blankies. These little security blankets are like her binki. She has two at a time and sucks on them all night which means they need constant washing. I bought her four new ones for a stocking stuffer.
I'm also washing these 3T size pajamas for her since she's moment away from outgrowing her 2T size. She is one tall little girl!
My bedhead and baby bump! It's really starting to show which I love. As weird as pregnancy can be I'm finding myself really enjoying it this time around. Maybe part of that is really understanding what the end result is... I'm so excited to have another!
We got our Christmas tree this weekend and have one little gift under it.
Grey morning clouds over the mountain. We don't get to see the mountain often in the winter but it sure is beautiful when we do.
Yesterday I sewed this little ornament for Gigi. She was frustrated with her lack of participation in the tree so now she has her own little ornament to hang and play with whenever she feels like it!
I'm currently reading Les Misérables and Parenting with Love and Logic. I have had Les Misérables on my shelf for a few years and have been waiting and waiting for the perfect window to read it. I finally started it and then learned about the film coming out. I want to finish it before the release but I highly doubt that's going to happen. As for Parenting... we are heading full-tilt into the twos and we are both wanting to approach these important years ahead with thoughtfulness and patience. This weekend was not an easy one and it's clear that Gigi is beginning to really need our guidance and consistency in a new way.
Morning bath. Why not?
I hope your week is off to a good start!
