Good morning everyone! Before we get to my favorite things this week, I thought I would go ahead and post 58 pictures of Beck;)
My niece (Curly, the one that now shares birthdays with Beck) made this beautiful blanket for him. My sister told me that she started working on it the day I told her I was pregnant.
Skye is getting more adjusted to having Beck around all of the time.
And on Thursday we had a big milestone—> Andrew had to be at a training all day long so it was just me and 4 kids. We somehow made it to school on time which I was pretty proud about. Skye was not thrilled about me waking her up to take them.
While the big kids were at school we (Skye. Beck and me) just hung out at home.
And then when they were done with school I made the decision to take them on a walk along with Beretta… let’s just say I probably won’t do that alone again for a little while;)
We finished off the day with the most amazing meal from Jenn and Josse (I miss running with them both)! This meal tasted too good.
PS Brooke finished these 6 chapter books in 8 days… she has become quite the reader recently!
I have a few Friday Favorites to share today!
*For years I have wanted this Madewell bag and when I saw my friend with it using it as a diaper bag, I had to do it. So I justified the purchase by saying it is my diaper bag ha and I’m also calling it my ‘push present’ (<— I just learned what that is haha) and I’m in love with it.
*I bought this toy for the girls and it is a HUGE success. They have spent hours and hours with it. I love it when I find something that entertains a 2 year old and an 8 year old at the same time. They can color the little animals and then they wash off in the bathtub so you can color them all over again. I am buying a few extras to have on hand to give as gifts.
*Not only do beanies mean I don’t have to wash my hair as often but they also make it so I have a sleep mask in an instant when I need a nap. I need a nap a lot right now because Beck thinks that eating every hour at night is the best way of life…. I would too if someone was ready to give me food every hour ha. PS my favorite beanies are here.
*This is actually my favorite item of the year or maybe decade?! I was given this Owlet when Skye was born and loved it with all of my heart and now feel that same love with it for Beck. Each night we put the little sock on him and it tracks his heart rate and oxygen levels throughout the night. The alarm goes off if those numbers drop to dangerous levels and it gives me so much peace at night. With Brooke I did not have this and woke up a million times each night to check and see if she was breathing.
*Okay, last time I mention Scott Fauble’s book for a bit but I have LOVED seeing his detailed training plan from his training for the NYC Marathon. It’s been a good reminder that these elites don’t just glide through their training and it just all comes together naturally for them.. I’ve loved seeing the real side of his training.
