Hola! This weekend was all about spending time with Olivia and watching her develop. This little girl is going through her developmental milestones and just crushing them. In the blink of an eye, she’s doing something new and surprising us. Thankfully, her sleep this weekend was a bit more normal, still waking up in the middle of the night, but more due to her head cold than anything else.
Friday we had dinner in, some fried fish and pasta. For the pasta I used a recipe I go to every so often. The sauce is just mashed avocado with lemon juice, olive oil, parmesan cheese, basil and tomatoes. Pretty good.
Saturday, Olivia and I woke up early and had ourselves a lovely morning. She was bright eyed and bushy tailed and made for a great breakfast companion.
Once Ryan got up and was getting ready for the day, Olivia and I hung out and cuddled in bed. I was taking the sheets out to get washed and she had a blast laying right in the middle of all that coziness.
The morning was pretty perfect, so I decided to go out on a run. I’ve been itching to get out there again for a while, and I’m glad I finally made it out there. I went out there without a plan or pace in mind and ended up running my first two miles non-stop plus an extra half with walking breaks. Part of that is probably due to the cool 68 degree weather.
When Olivia woke up from her nap, I went to get her and she greeted me standing on her crib and holding on to the sides. So, as soon as she was out and in Ryan’s hands, I proceeded to lower the mattress. First milestone of the weekend done!
We spent the afternoon outside, grilled some wings and watching football. The rest of the night was kind of a whirlwind, like usual. It goes from Olivia’s nap, to dinner, to feeding Olivia, to bath time, to bedtime in the blink of an eye.
Sunday, Olivia woke up on me. She was pretty stuffy in the early morning so I grabbed her and laid on the couch with her so she could finish her sleep. I don’t mind doing this at all. Later in the morning, we went to the outlet mall to pick p some shoes for Ryan and left with a hat for Olivia. A $1 hat from Old Navy. Looking good!
The rest of the day we spent hanging around in the house, playing with Olivia, reading to her and getting some more baby food made. She is still eating baby food, since she had no teeth yet. We’ve tried some chunkier food, bananas and avocados, and she’ll eat those, but not quite ready for harder textures.
Her favorite thing on Sunday was pulling up to standing and crawling over anything that was in her way. Another milestone! She can now pull up to standing by herself without much trouble and she can stay there for a bit too. Look at the grip on that little foot!
A relaxing weekend at home, I’ll take that any day!
Hope you have a great week!
