Updates And Bob’s RedMill Giveaway

Hello Hello! Can you believe August is next week? It’s been so hot here lately so I’m looking forward to September when the temps start cooling down.

So What’s New?

Miss Charlie finished swim lessons this week! So fun and she enjoyed every minute of it! Now I know what to do with her when we take her in the pool and some things to work on as well! She loves the water and had no problem getting in and splashing around. So fun!

Mr D is officially a big boy….we took him in for his 2 month well check last week and he weighs 13 pound 9 oz!! He weighed 8lbs when he was born so that’s quite the weight gain in 2 months! At least I know his middle of the night nursing sessions are productive! 🙂

Snapchat filters are the best, haha!

How’s Sleep?

We are gradually getting better, but we still have some rough nights here and there. Typically he will do one long stretch of about 5-6 hours, eat, then do a 3 or 3 1/2 hour stretch. So it’s not terrible, but I really long for the days that I don’t have such broken up sleep!  Soon I hope!!

Quick Eats for Busy Moms

Happy Friday Blogger Friends!

I am in serious disbelief that it is already the middle of July….that means Donovan is 2 months! It sure has been a blur! The days are busy juggling the two of them but we are making it work. And little man is growing growing, he’s already out of Newborn clothes….that didn’t last long. I’m anxious to see how much he weighs when we go in for his well check next week.

 These little smiles are so precious!!

Next week is also a big week because Miss Charlie is starting swim lessons!! So so cute, I can’t wait. Since we have a pool, I want her to be super comfortable with the water ASAP. We already take her in with us and she loves splashing around.

So two months in with two kiddos and I can still say that the days are CRAZY busy. I’m sure that isn’t going to change much, I will likely just get used to it. (lol) Now that Charlotte is finally eating more, I spend a lot of my time prepping her snacks and meals. On top of that, feeding Donovan doesn’t leave much time for my food prep  during the day. For dinners I’ve been relaying on the crockpot and leftovers 😉

Since I’m breastfeeding, I’m really trying to pay attention to what is going into my body. One of the perfect ways for me to get lots of fruits quickly is with Smoothies. And there is something about summertime that always makes me crave one….must be that 100 degrees temperature. My go-to smoothie of late has been: strawberries, banana, blueberries, almond milk and a scoop of Bobs Red Mill protein powder. Major yum.
