Life as a SAHM

Miss A and I had so much fun this week. With only one rough day and plenty of play dates, we had lots to keep us occupied. Starting with last weekend, we went to a friends house for a cookout. I can't believe we have a picture of her seeing like this! It's so hard to get her to look directly into the camera, let alone smile!

Miss A's new favorite thing to do is play in the bathroom cabinets and with my jewelry. It's actually working quite well, I can get ready in peace while she plays and takes everything out. Sure, there's a mess to pick up, but at least I can get dressed from start to finish! 

The weather has been a mix of really hot temperatures with high humidity to mild and nice and breezy. I love going for a walk at the end of the day, before it's time to start dinner. We usually take our walks on our neighborhood trails. It's so peaceful!

Our dog Sandy doesn't receive the attention she deserves! Miss A is really interacting with her now, from petting her belly lovingly to shaking her paws. It's absolutely adorable and my heart melts every time! 

We went to the library twice this week and I love their new "baby corner" area. Full of board books for her to pull down right by a colorful comfy rug.

We also go to story time at least once a week and we both get to socialize with other moms and babies. I look forward to it every week!

On one of our play dates, we went to check out a cafe that is 100% baby friendly and has SO many toys! We had a blast. 

Her favorite thing was this wooden aligator walker. She went back and forth many, many times. I can't wait to take her back here soon. 

To round out the end of the week we spent some time outside in our front yard. She was having a bit of a cranky day and a change of scenery always seems to help. 

Also new this week- walking independently and new words! Her confidence with walking has grown tremendously and on Friday night she walks laps around the house without stopping to catch he balance or to hold on any furniture. I think it's safe to say we have ourselves a walker!! She is also saying new words- "hi", "bye", "baby", "ba" for ball and "sa" for sock. She's changing and growing her fast and I'm loving every minute! I can't WAIT to take her to the beach this coming week, it will be her first time, and also our first mini family vacation.

Hope you're having a great weekend!
