Catching up with Olivia

Hey! I’m actually publishing the weekend recap on a Monday! Wow! This weekend was mostly spent with our baby girl. Our work hours have been extended, so our waking hours with Olivia are less now. So, we make the most of our time together during the weekend.

Friday night, Ryan actually had to work on a home show, so it was Olivia and I for the night. Once we got home from daycare pickup and she woke up from her nap, I got THE BEST hugs ever. She’s so loving and happy!

For dinner we had some leftovers and mango. For some reason, they will always remind me of grandma. She made the best mango jam ever.

Then, we spent the rest of the night playing. Mostly her giving me toys and wanting me to put them in my mouth and then give them back. Oh well!

Saturday morning, we were greeted with a light dusting od snow on the ground and a much colder weekend.

So, our little one is growing up and it was time for a wardrobe change. She helped me out by stealing and later handing me hangers.

How do I know it’s naptime? When she complains and smiles at the same time.

Then, we were off to Menards to get some new faucets and replace our leaky ones.

Running errands

While Ryan worked on that project, I kept Olivia entertained and enjoyed some sun in our three season’s room.

Truly, she was the one entertaining me by spending most of the time putting her blocks in my boots and then taking them out.

Sunday, was a little bit warmer, so I ventured out with Olivia to catch up on errands. going into a dressing room with a toddler is a whole different experience.

Once back, I literally ran away for a couple of miles. It felt good to get outside and moving once more.

In the meantime, these two hung out and napped.

The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing, playing, cooking and just enjoying each other.
