EJ, Kevin, and I went to our first concert at Red Rocks. We saw Ingrid Michaelson & Ben Folds perform with the CO Symphony Orchestra. It was incredible, and Edmund enjoyed it/slept through it. I wa super angsty leading up to it. I hate buying tickets for things super far in advance, but this one time Kevin convinced me. And then the weather said 99 degrees!!!!!!!! We had no clue how EJ would be way back when we bought the tickets. We thought we might be able to leave him with a babysitter – ha, ha, ha!!! As it turns out, I’m much more comfortable bringing him along places and knowing that he’s not at home crying since I’m really the only one who can put him to bed. We ended up staying in the parking lot until the sun dipped below the mountains, and then it was totally fine. Everyone was super supportive of us having him there. Someone even gave me a high 5 and said we were the best parents ever! Mostly just tons of smiles and awwwwaaaas!
Also listening to lots of podcasts: The Longest Shortest Time, Totally Mommy, Classical Classroom, Reading Lives, and more!
Recycled pic. I have a baby now!!! Kevin doesn’t get candles and sprinkles anymore. Haha. :) But I did make his favorite carrot cake from scratch so that’s something! Poor Kevin. I only made him one cake for three occasions this week: Father’s Day, his birthday, and our anniversary!
We went about a month without sugar/junk food (like zero, none!) before this weekend so it actually took us a few days to down this cake.
Not enough water. I did it while I was pregnant, and now I’m just done. I hate water. However, we did go a full month without drinking any Diet Coke or other pop. I relented this weekend for the birthday/Father’s Day/anniversary celebrations. We hate on La Croix, but we drink it all the time. Maybe it’ll grow on us someday? At least it’s cold.
Ugh. Nursing friendly clothing. The WORST!!! I’m getting creative though.
This romper from ModCloth is the best. The only con is that it takes a little longer in the bathroom! It’s basically the only thing I want to wear, and it’s fairly flattering with all the lovely postpartum stuff I have going on.
Also this dress from Loft that I saw in one of my Mama Facebook groups:
Ugh. Black and gray. So boring!!!!!!!!!! I HATE BEING PRACTICAL.
I’m not that into maxi dresses either, but at least it’s green and I’m tall enough to pull it off.
And here I am in my mom jeans from American Eagle. Haha. I got them for about $20 on their 50% off clearance. Online. Trust me. I didn’t go into the store. I have ZERO pre-baby jeans. I tossed them since they were worn out, and then I wouldn’t obsess over getting back into them. Isn’t that GENIUS? I recommend this to any pregnant women out there.
What’s Edmund wearing? Not much. It’s summer which is DIAPER TIME. Especially when you have warm-blooded baby boy who likes a lot of cuddles!
We love our Honest Diaper subscription. So easy and cute!
He’s got a nice pack of grey/green/orange onesies from Grandma Mac that he’s putting to good use. He still fits into his 0-6 month Hanna pajamas (worth it!), and I bought him a few Gap one-piece outfits.
Trains & goat Hannas!
Baby Gap 4th of July/picnic outfit.
I like to buy him nice quality things (ON SALE) and just keep one drawer of clothing. It’s working really well, and it also helps the laundry not to pile up. Plus he’s almost in 6-9 month clothing so I don’t want to waste the money!
So happy. Fairly rested. Relieved that this is my last big piano teaching week before summer break. A little stressed just about finishing this week out and for EJ’s 4 month appointment which will be my first time taking him to the pediatrician by myself. I know. Spoiled. Plus the shots make me a little sad. And also…. super out of shape. :/ But I just had a baby… :)
Uh oh…. things are about to get TOSSED. I read this whole book today, and I’m energized to tidy. Too bad I have so much going on this week.
Started this one just for fun during my hair appointment (2 hour vacation!!!) this weekend. It’s sort of a Will & Kate story. :)
Some super expensive mom shoes. Not buying them. Just wanting them.
Our upcoming trip to MN!! We’ve been looking forward to it all year. We’re taking EJ to the lake! Here I am last year (with EJ not showing yet!) with my little sisters.
About finishing up EJ’s room. Okay, more like starting it. It’s pretty bare. I’m kind of excited to do decorate it more now that I KNOW him. And he’s SOOOO cool. :)
Baby laughs! They are SERIOUSLY MAGICAL!!! So wonderful. Makes everything worth it. I’ll change 50 diapers for a good giggle fest with my baby boy. :) :) :) You can HEAR it on my IG if you need a day brightener. :)
Also, our fourth year of marriage. Best one yet. Happy Anniversary!!! <3 <3 <3
What are YOU Enjoying? :)
P.S. Here Joans, now you have something to read. Leave me a nice comment! :)
