Mornin’! All the comments you left yesterday were seriously so helpful. I read through them all, and while I agree that every baby is different, it really helped me to get a sense of what everyone else is doing, too.
Maybe it was good mojo, but Hailey had a stellar day yesterday with eating and naps. Though someone was hoping she’d eat a little more sloppily.
Hailey ate her yolk and apple while I ate 1 egg + her egg white on half a whole wheat bagel with veggie cream cheese and 1/2 an apple with cinnamon.
Mid morning was Cabot plain Greek yogurt with honey and Love Grown goodness before I headed out to try on bathing suits.
Isn’t it amazing how bathing suit shopping can transform you from feeling like super woman to making you swear that the stores must have completely different mirrors than the ones you have at home? I went everywhere, from Macy’s and Dillard’s to a high end swimsuit shop. I was so nutty that I was going to pay a ridiculous amount if they could show me a suit that fully covered my behind. No luck. Seriously? Not a single size they had was covering me properly, so I gave up and sulked into a delicious Zoe’s Kitchen hummus plate.
Mmm… Zoe’s Kitchen.
Back home, I downed a quick snack,
then went on a short, 30 minute wog before heading back out for more errands. Koda needed dog food and I quickly realized the pet store makes for a very exciting trip to a 7 month old. Forget the zoo!
It just so happened that the pet store was next to Old Navy and I somehow talked myself into giving the whole bathing suit thing one more try… SUCCESS!!
Everything fit like a dream! I loved the solid black bottoms with the mix-n-match tops. Plus, each piece was only $15! I love you Old Navy.
We celebrated back at home with a meal of peas and whole wheat spaghetti. She ate it all and flashed me that gummy smile that just melts me.
David and I went a little fancier for our dinner. I tried a new wild rice recipe.
Yum. I paired it with broccoli and a new york strip.
I ate half my piece of steak and went back for more broccoli and rice. Oh, I ate 2 carrots and 2 olives while I was cooking dinner, too. Had to mention that just to keep things honest
Where do you have the most luck with bathing suits?
I can’t praise Old Navy enough right now for saving the day!
