Things I’m Loving Lately

Man, life has been crazy lately! The 4 month sleep regression is hitting hard over here and I feel like a walking zombie. I legit think I have mastered the art of sleeping with my eyes open!

It’s been a minute since I have written a “things I am loving” post so I thought it would be a good place to start! Feel free to chime in in the comments section with things you are loving!

First off the thing I am loving the most is that today is our 3 year wedding anniversary! Time certainly flies when you are having fun! This past year has been quite the ride and despite the sleepless nights we got the best gift this year! Happy anniversary Jeff!

I rarely ever get dressed in cute clothes/outfits these days! My typical attire is workout clothes and shorts and a t-shirt. On the off chance I do get to put real clothes on I enjoy getting dressed up. When Cleo Madison asked me if I wanted to try one of her pieces I jumped at the chance to spice up my wardrobe! Since I try to keep most of my clothes nursing friendly and you usually either find me in sandals or sneakers I opted to try a pair of her cute sandals! I went for the Florence Lace up Sandals and I am so glad I did! They are so comfortable and super cute! I am all about comfort these days when I am walking around the city and I would happily wear these all day long!

Usborne books, I recently discovered Usborne books thanks to Courtney and after careful consideration I decided to be a consultant! I just love reading with Hudson and he seems to enjoy books as well. We love reading the Usborne books because they are so interactive and engaging! I had my first facebook party the other night and had so much fun! I can’t wait for my next party and to keep growing Hudson’s library!

Our first night away! On Friday Jeff and I have a wedding and it will be our first night away from Hudson over night. While I know we will miss our little man we are so excited to have a parents night away!

The cute new honest diapers! Honestly this is one of the best things we have signed up for and I love all the cute new and fun patterns they are rolling out! Hudson does too!

Another one of the best things we have done is try Hello Fresh: a few months ago my friend shared a Hello Fresh discount with us and it has been such a great thing to incorporate into our meal plan rotation. We don’t do it every week but it is great for when weekends are going to be busy and I know I am not going to get to go to the grocery store! It’s too hard to get a baby and groceries into our apartment at the moment. What is even better about it is that Jeff looks forward to cooking the meals and comes home and gets started on dinner while I am finishing up bed time with Hudson. I really miss being able to get in the kitchen like I used to but I hope that will change soon!

Hudson: 2 Month Update

Another month gone means our baby is another month older! It is true what they say babies “wake up” after 4 weeks because Hudson has really woken up in the past few weeks. He spends less time sleeping all day and more time looking around, taking in the world and smiling! Hudson has been smiling
