Tuesday was another awesome day with this nugget... Yes, I'm obsessed with her.
That night I made this yummy pizza - LOVE - Austin's fresh tomatoes pretty much make it.
All in all, a wonderful Tuesday!
Wednesday was even better! We took a break from the gym and stayed home in the morning, and ran a short errand in the afternoon before Austin's mom got in town - YAY! Beckett loves her Mimi! We visited with Michelle for a bit, then Beckett went down for her afternoon nap at 1 p.m. I got ready and headed out around 2:30 p.m. for Chiropractor at 3, shopping until 5, a wedding shower from 5 - 6:30 at Brio and then dinner with the Blancos at Joey D's Oakroom! Such a wonderful day and I am so grateful to Michelle for being with Miss Beckett and giving us the opportunity to go out with friends and not worry about Beckett for a second. It was wonderful and I can see why people insist date nights are so important! More on shopping later, but I had a wonderful time at the shower celebrating Chris and Erin and seeing my old co-workers, and an awesome time with Mon and Andy! No pictures (I suck!), but a great, great day! And Michelle reported that all went well with Beckett - perfect end to a wonderful night!
Thursday was our chill day in after such a whirlwind Tuesday and Wednesday! Me, Michelle and Beckett spent the morning together, then I headed out to the gym for a great incline walk! (No infant room for Becks - she stayed back with her Mimi!)
|I can honestly tell that pushing myself on the treadmill makes a HUGE difference. Walking at 9 vs. 3 is like night and day. Yes, I don't go as far BUT I burn more!|
When I was pulling back in at the house Aunt Sharon pulled up! Us 4 girls spent the day together, chilling with Miss Beckett, visiting and eating an enchilada casserole for lunch! Before we knew it was 3 p.m. - time for Beckett's 6-month pediatrician appointment!
|sweet girl is so sad post-shots. I truly think it hurts her feelings. :(|
In a nutshell: Beckett is tall (95th percentile); Beckett is thin (50th percentile); Beckett hates shots; Beckett is healthy, thriving and developing just as can be expected - YAY! Wonderful little girl! After the doctor we hung out with our drowsy little girl until her nap, then I got to cooking a few meals, including pesto dinner! Austin got home and we did Beckett's bath and bottle for bedtime, then me, Austin & Michelle had a bottle of wine and visited until it was bedtime - such a great time!
FridayI woke up SUPER early to get ready to head down to Austin's office. I had to do a biometric screening for medical insurance and you have to fast prior so, needless to say, the earlier the better! After I stayed and met several of Austin's co-workers, boss, assistant, etc., and got to see one of his old co-workers from years back at another company - it was like nothing had changed - loved catching up with people when it's been entirely too long! I headed back home and Michelle was all packed and ready - we loaded Beckett in and the three of us headed back down to Austin's office - this time for an early lunch! Austin came over, Austin's Dad drove over from Chateau Elan and we had a great lunch at Houston's!
Afterwards I raced BG home for a nap, and then that afternoon we went for a 4-mile walk with our new friends Ashley and McKenzie! I met Ashley at our gym - we take a lot of the same classes, and her 13-month old goes with her! We had a great walk, although our little girls both got fussy midway through. What are you going to do? At least they're cute! :) After our walk Beckett napped and then we hung out, Austin got home, and we went to bed early - I was just exhausted from the week!
Woo! So yes, lots of being out and about, lots of workouts, and lots of time with family and my sweet baby - SUCH a wonderful week!
Hope you're all having great Saturdays!!
