Someone smiled their first social smile this week!
I hope you do a lot of smiling this weekend as well – happy Friday!
Sorry, I know it’s Saturday. It’s my MO now: perpetually late, dazed and inefficient.
Yesterday was a sweet day. I got a chance to connect with an old friend via Facetime. We talked and cried about Mommyhood while breastfeeding, diaper changing, and snuggling our babies. My little lady finally got to meet Emily’s little lady, Clara. It’s true -many states separate them but I can’t help but hope they cultivate a close friendship.
Although Amelie’s first impression did not get us off to a great start.
She slept through most of the interaction until she puked.
Many apologies for my tardiness, my computer time is limited these days…
In other news, my little lady is doing a great job packing on the chub, she’s sleeping for longer stretches only during the day (oy), and showing us her “personality” in the evenings, which keeps us all very worn out. But isn’t she cute?
Keep on keepin’ on, good friends!
Well, Miss Thang is just over 2 weeks old.
The time has stood still in some moments and snuck by much too fast in others.
Although my days/nights tend to blur together, I did come up for air and remember it’s Friday and wanted to wish you all a sunny happy weekend.
All the best and baby toots,
Candace & Amelie Quinn
Happy Friday, everyone! I’m scooting off to a track meet this afternoon and it’s supposed to be 70 degrees and sunny!
This is my little DIY project for the nursery. Our previous homeowners left this table on the deck for us. It’s meant for outdoors and was a dirty speckled taupe color but we decided to “clean it up” with white spray paint and use it in the nursery.
Much apologies for the terrible lighting, I took these pics this morning and the nursery window is East facing.
Although not really my “style,” I think the height is perfect and it was free…can’t beat that!
That’s the lamp I scored at Goodwill last week for $3.99. It’s a baby blue with a grungy shade and brown cord but I think the size and curves are sweet. I’d like to redo that as well (maybe in a punchy pink?) but it works for now if I don’t get around to that.
The Ikea rocker needs some spunk too, but I doubt I’ll get around to that either. Go me!
Enjoy the weekend, my bloggies!
Hubs has been itching to get a pet and I promised him we would once we bought a home. Turns out, our home already came with its fair share of pets living in our attic…
Although really cute, the thought of them nesting, PROCREATING, chewing through wires and insulation (prompting the possibility of an eventual house fire) and damaging our roof is far from appealing. We had a professional come out today to set traps. Don’t fret, he doesn’t harm them but rather releases them 20 miles away in the country. It’s not the most fun I’ve had spending 300 bucks… Oh, homeownership.
But, the pet control guy said he discovered a little kids table up there. A long lost treasure! Maybe one day I’ll get up the nerve to see for myself (wouldn’t that be cute for Baby Girl?) but hoisting my pregnant belly up the ladder into a creepy attic hasn’t made it on my list of To Dos yet. It might never.
Have a happy Easter weekend, everyone! I hoping to nap a lot. :)
