Oh yes it’s Ladies Night, and the feeling’s right!

Oh yes it’s Ladies Night, and the feeling’s right!

Hola blog! Mumsie is cuddling with Baby M. while I type out my weekly blog entry…while simultaneously holding a hot compress on my left nipple. Motherhood has made me a master class multitasker.

I thought I was over shows about zombies, but along came "Santa Clarita Diet". It's adorable!
This week’s nighttime viewing (while cluster feeding) show: “The Santa Clarita Diet”. Cutest show about zombies you’ll ever see. I was resistant to watching it at first, but hooked by the end.

First signs of spring hit our backyard! 🌱
Spring is starting to hit our backyard.

Sunny family walkies. 💚
I love our family walkies.

Tummy Time to Deee-Lite radio on Pandora (note the dogs in the background).
This particular Tummy Time session was to Deee-Lite radio.

First family outing to a dog park: complete! 🌲
Last weekend (Saturday? Sunday? Who can say) we had our first outing to a big dog park. The BOB stroller handled the roots wonderfully! And although there was an initial screamfest in the car that required a breastfeeding session (in the garage, before take-off), the baby was quiet during the entire trip to the park, and both car rides. Phewwwwww. I know they have to cry occasionally. But I don’t have to like it!

Put in contacts today for the first time in ??? It's easy to let self-care slide while taking care of a newborn. Maybe in two weeks I'll be able to paint my toenails!
Feeling like myself again, including wearing contacts for the first time in ???. I even painted my toe-nails this week!

Wow. What an incredibly gorgeous mama.
We didn’t watch the Grammy Awards, but I caught a pregnant-with-twins Beyonce on Youtube the next morning and was blown away by her look, performance and whole vibe. Gorgeous. Almost makes me want to be pregnant again (JUST KIDDING).

What a beautiful day! 🌞
I enlisted the help of my friendly neighbor to watch Baby M. while I take the dogs for a quick daily walk, and it’s been wonderfully therapeutic. Especially when the sun is shining.

Afternoon disco dance party to Donna Summer radio..."Ladies Night" by Kool and the Gang really made him bop around.
Afternoon dance parties in the sunny nursery to “Ladies Night” are also fantastic! Look at this little man.

I had been waiting to put these booties on him, and now they're almost too small! He has big feet like his mom. So proud! 👣
I waited to put this adorable booties on him, and now at nearly 6 weeks old guess what? They’re too small! He sure has his mother’s big feet.

Josh and I don't normally celebrate Valentine's Day, but what the hay, motherhood has made me sentimental. Happy Valentine's Day! @djmagicelf 💚💙❤(homemade card circa 2008, the year we got married)
Mothering a newborn made it impossible to go out and get Joshy anything for Valentine’s Day (or even the day before Valentine’s Day, which is what we usually celebrate). He brought me home a card, some little presents, and a heart-shaped chocolate cake though. He’s so gooooood.

Adorable homemade card from my MIL to Baby M.. 💖
Love the monster card Fleeta made for Baby M.. She’s always so thoughtful.

Josh bought me this fun decorative ball last night, which immediately began shedding gold glitter all over our son. Eh, he's five weeks old, time to start experiencing what this household is all about! ✨🌟✨
Josh bought me this fun decorative ball, which immediately began shedding all over the house and our son’s head. Sparkle, baby!

Nature Cub! 🌲
These dogs follow me around the house allll day long. I suppose they always did, but I thought maybe Bear Cub would distance herself from the baby. Wrong! She’s a protective Cub.

The bright-eyed and calm moments are wonderful. And the smiles! I've requested more smiles! 💙
This week he’s been smiling more and just recently started cooing at me, which I love so much there is no way I’m going to break focus and take a picture! So he looks serious in all of his pictures.

Monday. 💙
So much love.

I have been so lucky this week to have someone watch the baby long enough for me to take the dogs for a walk...and 3 out of 4 of those days were sunny! Take THAT, crappy forecast! 🌞
My photos haven’t changed all that much, there’s just a lot more…baby.

Special thanks to @algae13 today, who allowed me to walk the dogs and eat a meal (without breast-feeding at the same time), and who cuddled Baby M. into a nap and lent us some groovy baby carriers! Mwah! 😘
Thursday Josh’s old boss came over in the morning and let me walk the dogs, eat lunch (without breastfeeding at the same time), snuggled the baby AND lent me some fancy schmnancy baby carriers to wear! This purple one is one of them. It’s similar to the Moby. He fussed at first but I hypnotized him by bouncing on the stability ball and then he chilled out.

Come on, spring!
More spring in the backyard.

Just ducky. 💙
Spotted on our dog walk yesterday.

My mother visiting meant TWO dog walks today! Woo hoo! And look who decided to go for a swim on the way home. Labs.
Maggie dog had to jump in the nearest body of water right as we were leaving the park, of course!

Grandma and Baby M.. 💕
Mumsie flew into town Thursday night, and it’s been wonderful having her here. Yesterday I was able to take two dog walks, and we brought home Hawaiian food to eat for dinner last night, mmmmm.

Somebody's been a little fussbucket the last two nights...but he's still awfully cute.
He’s had two super fussy nights in a row, but who’s counting? I’m pretty happy if I can piece together 5 hours of sleep per night.

Drizzly walk today. 💦
Today’s walk…oh, I hear my baby crying! I can’t believe I made it through this entire blog entry. Catch you later!
