Friday Link-up and Loving Lately

9 month appointment in the books and thankfully, no shots. We don’t have to return until she’s a year old — isn’t that crazy? As these doctor appointments become fewer and farther between, I still catch myself thinking, “wait, you trust me to do this!?” But it does keep getting both easier and harder — but it’s somewhat more predictable, so it allows you to breathe a bit easier ....more

Meal Planning (5/17-5/23)

So by the looks of it, Kaitlan has possibly TWO more teeth on the way. She’s been really amiable the past few days, so either the baltic amber teething necklace we picked up last week is working or we’re definitely going to be in for it. A friend at the gym swears by these necklaces, so fingers crossed ....more

7 Month Update

Note: Ack, we’re at nine months and I’m again playing catch-up with Beeb’s monthly updates. This is her 7 month update. Time is flying now that the weather is nice ....more

Meal Planning (5/10-5/16)

Sorry for the delay on this week’s meal planning. We’ve had an interesting week. It started this weekend with Kaitlan developing a low-grade fever on Saturday afternoon ....more

10 Things I Keep in My Gym Bag

I love reading posts like these from athletes of all types/backgrounds, so I thought I’d create a post of my own about my gym bag necessities that stay with me at all times! Wrist Wraps for lifting. Nuun for those times when you need a little extra in your hydration plan — typically in summer with running workouts ....more

Weaning

So as I alluded to in a recent post, we’ve been weaning. It’s certainly not what I thought we’d be doing at 8 months, but as I’ve learned with most everything in parenthood, you can only go with your gut and best intentions. How did we end up here? ...more

Meal Planning (5/3-5/9)

I kept this week’s meal planning superSUPER simple this week because I knew Neil was coming back from his float trip late Sunday and there wouldn’t be a lot of time to prep or mess around on Monday. We’re still eating a lot of chicken because it translates to Beeb’s meal prep and it saves us time in the long run not having to prep separate meat. Something we’ve been doing now for a few weeks is buying a whole chicken to make our lunches with ....more

Flying Solo

This was my first official weekend flying solo with Beeb. To date, neither of us have ventured out for more than a few hours without the other and the baby in tow, and frankly, we haven’t done much of that either. We also haven’t hired a babysitter or had a date night since November ....more

Mommy Thumb

So apparently that’s a thing. After waiting months to feel 100% again after spraining my wrist back in November, I decided to make a follow-up visit to the doctor. While I haven’t been in crippling pain, and every other part of my hand and wrist feel fine again, the tendons around the base of my thumb are still swollen and painful....more

Oh Weekend

We had a great weekend so I wanted to give a quick update — which is tough because as you probably have seen, I tend to be really wordy. Our weekend started off with an awesome find. I’ve been hoping for quite a while to put a little gym area in a little room we’ve been using for storage off the garage ....more
