2 Months Old

Sunday, September 29, 2013

Saywer is 2 months old! He's still a little guy at a 8 pounds 12 ounces, but he has changed so much in a month. He loves getting out of the house and strolling around town. Letting me get my workout on so I can drop the rest of the baby chub. Sawyer is sporting his pumpkin hat which matches perfectly with his pumpkin pj's. He was not super happy with the photo shoot, but I managed to snap this right before he started can tell his mouth is open and ready to belt one out!

Maternity Leave

Friday, September 20, 2013

When I used to see women go on maternity leave I thought they were so lucky. Three months of vacation and you get paid for it...sign me up! I kind of forgot about the part of taking care of another human being. Minor detail. I might not be getting much done these days, but I'm starting to see the rewards.

There has been huge changes this week. I'm seeing smiles...although I still question if the are gas related. Sawyer is also holding onto things and "playing" (I use this word loosely) with toys. With a little more sleep and the return of my sanity things are looking up!

Game Night!

Monday, September 2, 2013

I always love Labor Day weekend. Not only do you have a 3-day weekend, but as my husband Derek says "It's the gateway to Fall." Which happens to be our favorite season (a close second to Winter). Strange for two people that live in sunny Southern California, but that's another story.

This weekend we found a fun way to celebrate the holiday with a newborn...GAME NIGHT! The baby goes to sleep and we got down to business:

Game night decor...check!

Games...check! Our all time fav is Apples to Apples. We play it at most family gatherings and Battle of the Sexes was something I picked up to spice things up. It was a fun icebreaker.

Snow cone maker (currently on sale at Crate&Barrel)...check!

Get our drink on with friends...done and done!
