It's been a while since I've done a true 'update' on what's been going on around here.
So, here it goes.
* First off, I feel as life is starting to get back to a pace to where it was before we had Shelby. We're back out going to events and even doing things with friends.
Not that we totally stopped but last weekend was the first weekend we actually stayed on the go the entire time.
Before we would do a few hours out then head home.
Now I'm feeling more comfortable feeding on the go and changing diapers on the go.
* My eating habits have been slacking.
That is despite the fact that I have now vowed to start working out at 5:30am every Tuesday and Thursday.
This is my 2nd week at it and so far so good.
It's SOO hard to find time to workout at night that I knew I had to do something.
I still plan on power walking with Shelby around the neighborhood 2-days a week after work, but now if the weather stinks I don't have to be upset because I'll still have 2 days in.
* Shelby is a rock star at school.
We got a 'happy gram' from her school today that she's rolling all over the classroom. Literally from one side to the other!
We see her rolling here at home but we don't have nearly the room they do at school.
* Brad and I are both into making baby food.
Thank goodness my cousin Cindy gave us her baby food maker.
Shelby has enjoyed, carrots, peas, sweet potatoes, avocado and tonight I made summer squash puree!
After a few days of that we're moving on to fruits.
We're having the school feed her because by the time she gets home she's way too tired.
* Speaking of cooking.
I feel as I'm 'starting' to get back into the swing of things.
I haven't had the desire or energy to really cook for weeks but the last week or so I feel as if I'm getting back into the swing of things.
I even prepared these last night for us to enjoy for dinner tonight.
Baby steps back into 'real' cooking.
It's all about time management!!
* I forgot to include the gorgeous flowers I received for Mother's Day.
My MIL got me this fun pig pot with petunias in it.
And, my Mom bought me this gorgeous vase of flowers.
We're still enjoying them.
* In other random news.
Shelbs is still liking her exersaucer but I feel like she needs more toys.
I'm also feeling as if it's time to put up the swing.
We just found out Brad's cousin and his wife are expecting so we're saving all our stuff to give to them.
A few random pictures from when my parents were here.
Shelbs enjoying some GiGi time.
And, some Poppi time!
With my parents in town we took advantage of the babysitting and headed out to a friend's graduation party.
You might recall my friend Karen who threw me a baby shower back in October.
So proud of her!
She graduated from Belmont Abbey over the weekend after 4-years in night school to finish her 4year degree!
All while working full time at the bank!
I could not have done it!
They had a few of their neighbors over and us to celebrate.
Her family is as proud of her as we all are!
And, the last random photo/tidbit for the night.
A picture a friend of mine sent of me and Shelby at the crawfish boil Saturday.
I still can't believe I have a blue-eyed baby!?
Where in the world did that come from?
I can't believe this is my 3rd post this week.
I'm on a roll!!!
