Weekend Stuff

We had such a great, relaxing weekend.  I had to close the pharmacy Friday night, so our weekend didn't technically start until Saturday morning.  We got up early Saturday so we could take Anniston in to the doctor.  She's had a runny nose and a little cough for the past few days and given her history of ear infections, I was scared it was going to cause her to get one.  I was hoping to catch it on the front end this time before it got really bad.  Her ears weren't terrible, but they weren't clear either.  Our doctor went ahead and started her on antibiotics and then we talked about getting an appointment to see an ENT specialist to discuss our next step. 

Since I caught this before it got bad, she really hasn't been fussy at all.  In fact, she was in a great mood the rest of the day and we had so much fun hanging out around the house.  We took a trip to the grocery, did a few things around the house, and then just relaxed the rest of the day.  I've been in an "online shopping" mood here lately so I browsed every website imaginable and pinned a crap load of things I probably don't need.  Oh well...

Anniston has recently discovered her feet!  For people that don't have kids- yes, this is a big deal.  She randomly found them a couple of days ago and has been reaching for them ever since.  It's too funny.  I captured a couple of pics of that and some other randomness:

Having fun playing in her exersaucer:

Her first taste of green beans for dinner:

This morning she woke us up super early (as in 5 am).  She never cries when she wakes up but instead "talks" about whatever is on her mind I guess.  I grudgingly got out of bed and went to her room to get her.  It was so hard to be mad that she got me out of bed so early when I saw her smiling face. She grinned at me and continued to talk as if to say "I'm not sleepy anymore- I'm ready to play!" Who needs sleep past 5 am when you've got a beautiful, happy little girl wanting to play with you?  Not me...

We lounged around the house this morning and took a crazy amount of pictures.  Brandon rolls his eyes every time I get out the camera because he thinks I'm insane. least she will have plenty of pictures from her childhood!  I just couldn't help myself though.  I bought her a pair of jeggings a couple of days ago and put them on her for the first time this morning.  She was so stinking cute that I had to capture some of her adorable little bum:

We then took a trip to Target and then stopped by our favorite taco shop, Swanky's, for lunch.  I headed out for a brutal run later that afternoon while Brandon and Anniston played at home. **Warning: Mommy moment ahead that may seem insignificant to others but in our world is a rather big deal:)  This afternoon we were playing on the floor and A sat up by herself with really good control for several seconds!  She hasn't been able to sit up on her own for more than a second or two without falling to one side.  She hasn't been able to sit up very straight either.  Today she could sit up so much better and wasn't wobbly at all!    I was quite shocked!  Kind of crazy how much progress they can make in just a few days.  Ok, mommy moment over!

We relaxed the rest of the afternoon and just enjoyed spending time as a family. I cooked (shocker) a casserole for us to eat off of this week and prepared all my food for work this week.  I love starting Monday being organized!  I can't wait for tonight- I'm excited to watch the Oscars!  

Sorry for the picture overload but here are a few more:


  1. I love the time when they start playing with their feet, so fun!
