So I know I said my next post was going to be about stevia and I know you’re all on the edge of your seats waiting [sarcasm font], but you’re going to have to wait another day or two. Because I have to actually make something with the stevia before I write about it. And then I can give you some.
So yeah, thanks for your comments on my last post. Honestly, my mood is kind of all over the place. We have our geneticist appointment on Friday. I don’t really know what to expect. I don’t think they’re going to do any actual tests on Alexander. I think they’re just looking at him. Ugh. I just hate that we even have to deal with all of this.
Anyway, that’s not what I wanted to write about. I wanted to write about my 3-day weekend. Even though the only people who probably care are my family.
We actually didn’t do much for the actual holiday. Alexander did don his patriotic colors though.
And then we went to Ikea.
We got a chair…and some frozen yogurt. Because everyone knows the frozen yogurt (for a dollar) is the best part of going to Ikea. Makes up for the stressfulness that is getting through the entire store.
Then we met up with some friends for half-price crab legs at Fontaines.
Seriously, mom. Stop with the pictures.
The rest of our day/night included going to Trader Joe’s and falling asleep on the couch. #old.
Sunday we worked on fun things like sitting.
I know you’re jealous of my photog skillz. He is sitting unassisted. I mean if you count hunched over in a tripod position “sitting.”
Going along with the “my kid is almost 6 months old even though he looks like a 3 month old” theme, I also decided he needed to experience a playground. With shoes on.
I’m just now catching up on our adventures last weekend. We woke up bright and early on Saturday morning to head to the airport for our DC trip. It was Alexander’s first flight. And we managed to miss the flight. Just teaching him about the joy that is getting to the airport an hour and a half early and still not making the flight. And how one needs Bloody Marys to feel better about that.
We ended up getting on flight that left about 2.5 hours later so it turned out okay in the end. Alexander was totally fine on his first flight.
Our DC trip was a whirlwind of seeing different relatives.
And we fit a wedding on the Chesapeake in there too.
So remember when I used to blog about all the healthy things? Stuff changes when you have a baby, I guess. That’s not to say that I’m eating at McDonalds and my treadmill is gathering dust because I’m not and it isn’t, but when it comes to actually documenting my so-called healthy habits, I just don’t have the time or energy.
But it’s still there – the healthiness. Is that a word? Though I haven’t been taking many pictures of my food, I’ve been doing a really good job making a meal plan on Sunday, going grocery shopping and actually making the meals. This week we had slow cooker chicken verde, broccoli, cheese and potato soup and southwestern quinoa and black bean casserole.
Look, a picture!
As for the workouts, while I wouldn’t say I’m working out 5 days a week like I did pre-baby, I’m still working out…semi-regularly. I’ve had a cold this week so it hasn’t been the best, but I had a post-pregnancy PDR last week of 3.75 miles. Mostly run miles. A couple of minutes walking here and there.
And also, this was gross.
And let’s talk about my baby. Because it’s my blog and I can. Selfie number a million and two. This is what we do when we’re bored. And it’s a terrible picture of me, but Alexander looks super cute.
It never fails that when he wears this onesie (it says Go Green on it), he poops in it. Every freaking time.
Look who can hold up his head while on his tummy. And speaking of his tummy, this little boy loves sleeping face down. It’s slightly terrifying but I can’t do anything about it. I put him down on his back in his crib and he immediately rolls over. I mean, it’s understandable; I sleep on my tummy too. What’s slightly ridiculous, however, is that he insists on laying on his stomach in the rock n play too.
