Friday Moments | May 2019

Everly has discovered our backyard playset and it is both the best and the worst thing. I love it because we don't have to go to the park, but it also means that she wants to be outside playing in it at all hours of the day.

Everly had her first Easter Egg hunt. Not her first Easter, but her first hunt. She didn't quite get the point of it, but it was still really adorable to see her toddling around with her dad "finding" eggs.

So our normal walk time hit at the same time as a rainstorm. We turned back and I was going to just go back inside, but Everly decided that she wanted to explore. It was a little colder than I would have liked for her first play in the rain kind of day, but it was still so much fun to watch her splash in puddles and wander around.

About 1 second before she fell backward. Luckily she just fell back onto the swing and not off of it.

These blossoms... I'm seriously grateful for Spring. I just wish that the blooms lasted longer.

My favorite view from our daily walk. I imagine that if I were Anne of Green Gables, I would name it something fancy and akin to "the white way of delight", but I've yet to come up with something.

Everly decided that she needs to sit in this box. At first, I was like, "No, you barely fit, you'll break it" it's a nice box... but then I thought to myself, it's JUST a box. It was a birthday present to her and if this is how she finds joy in it, then I decided that it's ok. In case you were wondering, she hasn't broken it... yet.

We tried Pho at Costco while we were there picking something up and it was so good that I couldn't stop thinking about it and we ended getting some as takeout later. This was actually day 2 because there was so much it was enough for 2 meals. It was SO good. A little spicy, but good and now I'm on the hunt for a good Pho recipe.

We got to see our little nugget for the first time on Tuesday. I was honestly a little nervous going in. I kept thinking, "What if it doesn't have a heartbeat?" My mom miscarried at least 4 times so it's something I worry about, but as soon as we saw it's little heart beating and the doctor said everything looked good it was so comforting. 

This girl. Yes, she's wearing two sweaters and a puffy vest over it. And a hat. I was worried she would get cold. Yes, I'm that mom now.

Goals for These Coming Weeks:
-Work out! Pregnancy exhaustion hit and my miracle mornings kind of died. I'm trying to find a new good time because waking up early has me dragging really hard all morning and during Everly's nap... I also take a nap. And eat lunch. Mostly just those two things.
-Journal every other day
