|HRM 1 of 2 (hopped off to get more water!)|
|HRM 2 of 2 post-water break!|
Friday was another great, normal day! During Beckett's mid-morning awake time we visited the grocery store, and during her afternoon nap I made tons of food for baby girl! (tons = 6 weeks of fruit)
|Love some baby food making: Clean, peel, steam, process, pour, freeze, add to labeled bags!|
|Mailer, products, test pouches, and Beckett trying it out at the car dealership the next day|
|Our freezer is being taken over... I have officially given her the top "drawer" and one of the panels in the bottom left.!|
Saturday we got up with Becks and then at 8:30 she went down for her nap and I went to get Sharon for a Greenway walk! We did 4 miles in an hour but I forgot my HRM - UGH! Great walk and talk though as always! I got home, hopped in the shower and then we headed out to Infiniti to get Austin's car serviced. They promised 'under an hour' and totally delivered. Beckett was a sweet girl and ate her pouch in the waiting area - yay! Then we raced home, put Beckett down for her nap and started getting ready for Baby Gavin's 1st Birthday party! The party was from 2 - 5 and I figured we'd head out the minute she woke from her nap! Well, she slept until 3 so we didn't get there until 3:30, but the party was in full swing and had such a wonderful turnout despite the weird, rainy weather. Sarah had gone all out with decorations, food, favors - you name it! Beckett didn't get to play (obvi) but she seemed to have a good time, just very chill/observant and she even sat up a little/kinda in the 'photo shoot' area!
|Didn't get a pic of the birthday boy but got a pic of some adorable pics of him - he is absolutely precious! Beckett matched the party (yay!) and we loved the theme!! We met some really nice families and babies - so fun!|
Sunday we woke up well-rested to a pretty day! We had lots of family time in the morning, and then me and Sharon went for another walk - yay!
|Great workout right here in the neighborhoods!|
|when did this girl get so big?! And omg I know this is a bad iPhone shot but I had to post it - such a milestone to me!|
After her lunchtime solids, it was time to test out the inflatable pool in the backyard. We had tested Beckett at a pool when she was super young and did fine, then 3 weeks ago and she freaked out. This time she freaked out, then accepted it, then had fun with her toys - love all her little faces!
Then Beckett went down for a nap and we made pesto for 70 people. haha Not on purpose, Austin just had so much so I used it all and ended up making 70 servings. We froze 66 of them, cooked 4, and ate 2 (the other 2 will be leftovers). We made 5 different batches with 4 different nuts: almonds, pine, walnuts and pecans, and froze the majority using Beckett's (really cousin Dane's!) ice cube trays!
We then had pesto for dinner (duh) - we did the almond one which, fun fact, makes the darkest green pesto. Good times!
All in all, a great weekend with the family!! I hope you all had good ones, too!
Q: What was the highlight of your weekend? I just loved seeing Beckett interact with other babies at the party, with her new high chair, with new foods - it's just. so. fun!
