A year ago Hannah was a teeny little baby (sigh) and I was on maternity leave. I would take her for walks around the neighborhood in the Baby Bjorn and at first it felt like my insides were going to fall right out when I walked. If you’ve given birth you know what I’m talking about! On Saturday I ran 8 miles – with an average pace less than 10 minutes per mile. That’s progress!
Hannah still wakes up at night (and really, Blake does occasionally, too). But! She no longer requires a bottle that isn’t just water! That’s progress!
Blake is back in his own room and we’re thinking of completely retiring the crib/toddler bed. Originally he enjoyed staying in the same room as Hannah but she had a few nights with lots of wake ups and he complained that “Hannah is always crying and waking me up” so he’s now in his own room, in a big kid bed, and putting new Spiderman stickers on the walls. For us, that’s progress!
And now, some pictures from Mother’s Day weekend (and before):
I love how both Blake and Hannah look suspicious of us and as if they’re plotting an escape from the photo.
Blake took Hannah on a wagon ride:
(Is it weird that I know many lyrics to this actual song?)
And I just LOVE how you can *still* see the bruise from the other week when he had a collision with the play structure. Also 0f note – the new garbage can that has a lock. Hannah really enjoyed clearing off the alphabet letters and throwing them away. And I really disliked fishing them out of the trash.
And finally – the little princess is very dainty when she eats:
Hope you and yours had an enjoyable Mother’s Day!
