Vacation is lovely and all, buuuuut this unpacking a laundry stuff is garbage.
[Highlight of my vacation: Seeing my parents dance with my son. I have many memories of dancing with my daddy and seeing my parents dance together. I don’t think anyone ever expressed to me how beautiful it would be see Victor make memories with his grandparents. Right in the heart.]
I’m still on Vegas time, so please forgive the late post, homies. Today was a little rest from traveling, but laundry and meal planning awaits! Oh, and I bought some Christmas gifts… I’m majorly behind on that gift front… holidays are different nowadays… I’ll probably reflect more on that when I’m not so tired.
[My momma got this picture of Victor and I before the wedding last week. I can’t believe how much bigger Victor looks!]
I’ve been so scatterbrained this week that even my lists haven’t made sense. But, I’m making it work and checking my list approximately 9,000 times.
[Packing for myself used to be tough. I mean, how do I know what I’ll want to wear in advance?? Then I learned how to pack with another person…good thing Adam is a light packer… However, nothing has really prepared me for packing for myself, my spouse, AND a tiny human. I will get better over time with practice!]
After a rough week at my job, I sat outside in the amazing weather and painted my nails. My boss has been kinda demanding and I’ve been getting a much shorter lunch time break. At least the late night shift came in on time, don’t know what I’d do without him…
[Victor has been very clingy and not into taking his naps this week. Thank God for Adam being so willing to jump in and help after his own long day at work. But, despite the overwhelming week, I took some me time.]
Before I was a mom lots of things grossed me out. It would be a lie if I told you those same things no longer wig me out, but it is different. I’m not so reactive, I mean, Victor actually spit up in my hair today and I was chill about it. Was it gross? Yes. Did I as quickly as possible go wash my hair? Yes. But did I lose it by getting mad or being grossed out? Nope. Life happens, it’s like the official mom motto of the world.
[My friend Kelly took this great picture of father and son tonight. She got me right in the feels.]
Make the most of the time you’re given. Even if that means sweeping your floors at midnight.
[Our little prince was very fussy and nothing I did was really working for him. Victor got lots of cuddles and I held him through his nap. I was feeling guilty this evening thinking about all the things that need done, but he really deserved those extra cuddles today. MY BABY HAS A TOOTH POKING THROUGH HIS GUMS!!! Like, guys, he’s a baby, why he gotta start getting teeth??? Hopefully Victor will bit more chill tomorrow…]
[I was trying to get a picture of he and I on Saturday, and this was the lovely result.]
