Weekend of Changes

Changes. So, I already have that feeling. The horrible feeling. The feeling that your baby has changed so much in a week's time and you are missing it. 

This weekend, things seemed different. She seemed different. She was just as happy and pleasant as ever, but she seemed bigger and stronger. She seemed more playful and more active. Today, I couldn't help but hold her, stand her up, tickle her, and help her sit up all day because she was so much fun to be around. Rolling over at every turn, squealing and blowing raspberries, and just having a good old time. She is getting stronger as I help her sit by holding her hands. Today, I was even able to hold her on my hip for the first time ever. She has grown and changed so much in 3 short weeks. *Sigh* When she wasn't rolling and playing, she was laying in my arms and staring me. After eating today, she would simply lay calmly and still and smile at me. She would snuggle in my arms like she never wanted to leave. I like to believe she misses me during the week and misses our snugly nursing sessions so she lived it up this weekend. 

And it felt so good.

We didn't have any plans at all this weekend, but we were so busy just the same. My hubby got home late Friday night from traveling for work, and I was happy to spend the weekend together. On Saturday, we had a family outing and we stopped at a new burger joint that just opened by us. SMASHBURGER. OMG. I am hooked. Seriously.

We splurged on burgers, fries, and we shared a Saturday afternoon milkshake with our favorite girl.

If you have a Smashburger, go to one. Now. That's all I'll say about that.

My other new weekend obsession ... The Laughing Cow Garden Vegetable Spread. After eating burgers and fries on Saturday, we wanted a lighter, healthier lunch on Sunday. This shit is amazing. 

We spread some on whole wheat tortillas and filled them with some turkey, carrots, cucumbers, and avocado. 

Wrapped those suckers up and prayed that she would even try one bite. At least, she loves pomegranate seeds.

A weekend full of chores, errands, and exhaustion, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I love being home with my family. Within the craziness, I find moments with my girls that just make this life worth living. After feeling a little negative at the beginning of the weekend, I am going to bed with a full heart. 

Have a great week! 


  1. I love laughing cow, but I've never tried the garden vegetable flavor. It sounds great in the wrap! You're not alone. I used to cry every single day when I left my baby to go to work. I cried on the weekends too because I felt I didn't know her. It's so hard.

  2. It's me again! I nominated your cute blog for an award! Come to my blog for the details! Yay for you!
