Time and Place: 7:43am. I’ve been up since 5:15am. Jake didn’t want to go back to sleep after eating. I’m on the couch with Luke watching Jake and the Never land Pirates before school and Jake is in his swing.
Eating: I’m drinking a caramel latte. #necessary after getting up at 5:15!
I made a quick run to Caribou while Scott was getting ready this morning. . . it is dangerous that there is a drive thru location literally blocks from our house.
Enjoying: Our morning routine. I’ve enjoyed having more laid back mornings while on maternity leave. A little extra time for breakfast and snuggles before taking Luke to school in the morning.
Loving: Baby smiles. I haven’t been able to capture it, but Jake has started to give us some smiles!
Practicing: After taking about two months off from teaching BP and CXWORX, I’m back at it next week, so I’ve been brushing up on choreography and making sure I can hold my plank again!
Craving: A really good piece of cheesecake.
Purchasing: Plane tickets for our trip to Disney in March!
Anticipating: I’m already thinking ahead to having to go back to work after maternity leave. I am so lucky that I’ll have 12 weeks off with Jake, but I’m already sad about going back to work and not being able to snuggle him all. day. long.
Sporting: I’ve been living in these Fabletics leggings.
Missing: The newborn stage. Jake is already growing and changing SO fast!
Discovering: Disney tips and tricks. Thank goodness for my amazing friend Angie who has told me everything I need to know about planning a Disney trip. I was feeling so overwhelmed with making dinner reservations (did you know you can make these 180 days in advance?!?) and Fast Passes! Also, I got a great tip from Becky to take a rest day in the middle of our vacation to recover a bit, I am equally looking forward to Cinderella’s castle and down time at the pool.
Writing: My postpartum fitness update. Each person’s post partum journey is different, and I had a reader request to share mine. Spoiler alert – patience and time are the keys to success.
Current thing I can’t live without: The Baby Shusher. It is magical to help Jake fall asleep or calm him down when he’s fussy – especially in the car!
Celebrating: First trip out of the house with both boys by myself. We went to Caribou and the Children’s Museum.
Snacking: Chia Peanut Butter Power Bars. yum!!
Expecting: My sister, Laura! She is going to come visit this weekend and I cannot wait! I haven’t seen her since Christmas. . . Looking forward to some crafting, shopping and playing with the kids.
And now it is 8:23. . . off to get the boys dressed and Luke to school.
Hope you have a great Wednesday!
