hello erin »

mommy & me. . . and a little weekend re-cappin’.

I’m linking up with emily & leah to bring you mommy & me monday! This weekend teeny-tiny bit cooler temps hit and the small hint of fall in the air wasnt lost on lex & i. We loved being able to wear jackets and sweaters (until 9am when we were forced to switch into tank-tops).
My Everyday Love
This weekend started off with a little swim lesson sesh. . . lex LOVES her swim lessons. I think its a highlight of her week, and seeing her in the water giggling, smiling, begging to jump inย  and go under water over and over again is adorable. This lesson started off like every other- with happy faces and much love for her swim teacher kelsey.ย  And then things got ugly. . . yes ladies and gentleman we experienced our very first public toddler meltdown (we’re all SO proud)! We still have zero clue what it was about, but i looked up and just heard baby screams coming from my child in the pool. I’m blaming this one on a canines, a short nap, and being a toddler.
Saturday night i got a little night out with the laaaaides. Our moms group met up for a 3+ hour dinner that included delicious brussel sprouts, lots of cupcakes, and cute little pregnant bellies. I’m not sure if i’m overjoyed or terrified that so many girls from our group are onto round numero dos. But i can tell you i’m excited for my two closest girl mom friends to experience being boy moms in a few months!!
Sunday was spent brunching, relaxing, and watching football. And lex is officially turning into a little mommy with her baby! We swaddle baby, feed her a bottle, and then put her in the crib to sleep (while i’m shushed if i even try talking while baby is sleeping). Then when lex climbs in for bed she cuddles up next to baby and they drift off into sweet slumber together. Its seriously the sweetest (and almost makes up for the public meltdown poolside).
