I really am looking forward to the weekend, this week just has been tiring for some reason! We are all tired! Rocco getting back into swing of things, Mike had crazy week at work, and baby teething is like WHOA! Her bottom two teeth should be popping through any day. She is doing pretty well actually with the teething, she is just more fussy, drinking less at some feeds, and not sleeping much. BUT, she did sleep all night Wednesday night! I felt like a new lady, ha!
Amazing what a little sleep does for the soul! This weekend we are celebrating Mother’s Day of course! Sunday I will go see my mama and give her gifts, I am sure Mike will do something for me. We don’t do breakfast, as he never gets up early, lol. I have to eat breakfast early! I am sure we will do a dinner or maybe brunch at home!
I am just grateful to be a mama to three awesome kids! I don’t really need anything special done for me, maybe just a nap!
Sharing some things from the week for Diva Spill Friday!
Elisabetta Rose is 5 months old! Next month she will be half a year old?! Crazy.
She is 11.5 pounds, 23.5 inches ( shorty! ) and she is doing so well post surgery! She is trying to roll over, in her crib now ( more on that later in post ) and she is noticing strangers! She really only wants me and Mike, and if someone else comes near her or holds her, she cries! I know they got through that phase. We haven’t started any cereal, don’t plan to until 6 months, then food at that time as well.
Sassy, Sweet, So Adorable! Happy 5 Months!
I love buying riced cauliflower and using it for a base for a simple meal. This bowl was riced cauliflower, broccoli, chicken, and bolthouse farms ranch dressing. I had this for dinner two nights in a row. I love this riced cauliflower, one I always buy!
So, I mentioned Elisabetta is in her crib. What I didn’t mention was that I was in her room as well. I know, I am horrible! I have been sleeping on the futon in her room, just until I feel she is ok. Yikes, I just have a hard time letting go, but I also want her sleeping through the night consistently. On the weekend I will sleep in our room, but during the week I don’t like to wake Mike! I know he needs his sleep, so hopefully she will sleep all night soon! If not, Mike just will get woken up!
Rocco’s 4th birthday is next month, that is CRAZY as EVER! I have been planning it, and got the cake guy booked to do his cake! I am thinking a cake like this, but with some alterations to it! We are obviously doing a space themed party, so excited!
Yesterday after I went to the dentist, I picked up my little man from therapy and we went to the mall. I had to pay for Anthony’s tux for prom, which is next weekend, and I got little man a treat for having a great day at therapy. I let him pick out a cookie at Mrs. Fields ( those cookie cakes are life, I need one ) and he was so excited. He got to choose what color, he said PINK! LOL! I love that he picked the pink cookie! He enjoyed it much, and it brought back memories for me.
I used to take Anthony there when he was Rocco’s age! Yeah, that place has been there for a while! Anthony used to love getting their mini m&m cookies or mini sugar cookies! Gosh, really made me realize how fast time goes!
Workouts this past week have been a combo of 21 day fix and 22 minutes hard corps. I start a new accountability/fitness group Monday, excited! I really need the motivation and love running the groups!
Elisabetta has been so good playing on her mat while I work out! She loves that thing, her favorite toy!
