It’s about time I dusted off the ole blog again. It’s been a while! Quinn is taking up the vast majority of my time and when she’s sleeping I’m either eating, washing pump parts, showering, cleaning, doing laundry, maybe a nap, and last on that list is blogging. It’s exhausting. BUT, this last week we’re starting to get glimpses of what a normal life can look like! Quinn is starting to sleep longer and longer at night, which makes this momma much more rested during the day. It’s amazing what 5 hours of consecutive sleep can do for a person. 🙂
I’d like to give you this huge long list of stuff we’ve been up to the past couple months, but my days run together. A few highlights: Scott turned the big 3-0! We made a trip home to see our families. Quinn started smiling and is becoming a lot more interactive. We also celebrated our five year wedding anniversary! Quinn is officially 2 months old which means I have one month left of maternity leave. Where has the time gone??!
This year for our anniversary taking a trip somewhere was out of the question, so we decided to spend the day picnicking and hiking in Land Between the Lakes. We always like hiking the Honker Trail around Energy Lake and the weather was perfect! We got Panera take-out and headed to LBL. We all ate and then we attempted our yearly “Photo with our Photo”. We got a couple good ones. And Quinn did a great job!
Here is my favorite outtake:
Quinn likes to coo, but when we get close to nap time she starts yell-cooing, or hollering as I like to call it. So, we were laying there trying to get a good shot and Quinn is hollering which is making me laugh and I can’t see because it’s so bright out. We love that little stinker.
After our picnic, Scott wore Quinn in our K’Tan carrier and we hiked a couple miles while she slept.
Once we made it back to the car, it was time for me to breastfeed Quinn. She’s a lazy eater and takes forever, so Scott checked out the wildlife that they have at the Nature Station.
Overall it was a fun day and I’m so happy that the weather was nice so that we could get out of the house! I still can’t believe we’ve been married for five years! Time flies when you’re having fun!
Speaking of fun, here are some photos of the munchkin:
We love her big eyes!
And finally, bath time. This kid loves it.
So, that’s what’s been going on on our side of the street. Looking forward to these next couple of months as we get to see more family over the holidays, getting Quinn baptized and celebrating Christmas.
