Every weekend seems to get better and better as we fall into our new normal - and with every passing day, I feel more comfortable in what I'm doing and how I'm feeling - which has been such a welcome relief.
And this doll baby is really starting to come into his own and is literally getting cuter every single hour.
Joel's office was empty on Friday, so we decided to head over there for the afternoon to meet for coffee and a crepe.
When we were done, Joel went back to work and Leo and I walked around Beverly Hills for an hour and then went back to his office to nurse and hang with him until he had to leave.
Saturday, I made it to a hair appointment that I have had to reschedule 3 times in the last 2 months. Joel and Leo had a blast together, and I enjoyed the three hours to myself more than I thought I would.
Leo has been giving us really great stretches of sleep at night, but he is such a loud sleeper it's keeping me awake! I think I was up on Friday night every 25 minutes checking to see if he was in fact awake, so when for the first time in a while, I napped during his long afternoon nap and it was glorious. I missed the Iowa and Tennessee games, but the nap took priority.
Saturday night we decided to make a few pounds of chicken meatballs so that we could have some and freeze some. It's been a huge help to have freezer meals on the ready for the weekdays that get crazy, so Joel and I have really tried to find time on the weekends to freeze at least something.
I had my 6 week post-partum appointment this past week and was given the a-ok to resume exercise, so on Sunday, I hit the road for a run (after an 11 month running hiatus).
I ran a half marathon almost exactly one year ago, and let me tell you - you lose your running mojo really fast. These 2.5 miles were really, really hard, and included a lot of walk breaks, but it felt so good to just be out there again.
Sunday afternoon we ventured out for an early dinner at a friends which was a lot of fun, and we were home early to start the week on the right foot.
