Weekend Rewind~Growth Spurt

I was definitely ready for the weekend to arrive as we've decided our precious little angel was having a bit of a growth spurt...I mean what else could explain the reason she decided to turn into a one-eyed monster! ha!

We had very few plans this weekend which was definitely a nice break from last weekend!

Friday night was a night of nothingness. Nothing really sounded all that exciting for dinner so Hubby & I ended up fending for ourselves from whatever was in the refrigerator...thankfully we did have a few options! We hung out watching tv and playing with Elyse before heading to bed with visions of extended sleep in our dreams!

Elyse enjoying her Mamaroo & her Wubbanub Puppy pacifier!

Saturday morning we laid in bed practically the whole morning just cuddling with our baby girl and trying to figure out exactly what schedule she would LIKE for us all to be on. Just when we thought we had it figured out and she changed her mind! I feel like all I did early on Saturday was feed her because instead of the 3 hour feeding schedule we had been on, she was wanting to eat every 2 1/2 hours! That 30 minutes makes a huge difference!

Saturday afternoon we headed down to my parents' house for dinner with them & my brother & SIL. My mom fixed up some yummy soup & chili and then we just spent the rest of the evening relaxing. For us as new parents, it's always nice to get out of the house and have someone else take care of your baby for awhile...the only thing I was responsible for was feeding.

Momma & her baby girl!

Yesterday we had church and again we had another Elyse-driven schedule, but thankfully we're learning to just go with the flow and adjust everything as needed. After church we had time for a quick lunch at Qdoba before coming home just in time for Elyse's next meal. We spent the afternoon just lounging around watching football before heading off to Small Group. Again, we ended up in a place where we walked in the front door and basically passed off Elyse until we walked back out! I hate to sound like we aren't enjoying her...because we certainly are! She's an absolute joy & has completely stolen our hearts! It's just that sometimes we need a break! Speaking of which...I'm headed down to my parents' house tomorrow to spend the day with my mom. So thankful for grandparents!

Motherhood is quite something isn't it? Those days still feel like a blur to me now - they go by so quickly and before you know it, they're these little 2.5 year olds that you have silly conversations with. The first couple of months are such a transition period too - of just getting used to things.

And EVERY mom needs a break - so take one when you need one and can get one! I am all about mom's getting some alone time now and again!

She's such a pretty little thing!!!
