Good morning, friends!

Yesterday morning started like a lot of them: Morning baby belly laughs, diaper change, breakfast for the little guy + iced coffee for me, and then breakfast for me while playing with Quinn and watching the news. Our mornings together are one of my most favorite parts of the day.

A couple of hours later, Quinn started to get cranky and went down for a nap. I’m pretty sure he’s hit the 9-month growth spurt because all he wants to do lately is eat and sleep.

Speaking of a growth spurt, Quinn is quickly outgrowing his clothing. Some of his pants are total floodwaters and his onesies fit like a Borat swimsuit. It’s getting a little ridiculous, so I bought him a bunch of new stuff on ThredUp. Have I mentioned I am obsessed with this website? Obsessed. It’s amazing for kid’s clothing, especially when you hit up the clearance section. Stuff is like $5! And, I didn’t realize this until yesterday, but you can use Ebates with ThredUp, so you get cash back on your order too. Boom. I love getting deals online.


When Quinn woke up from his nap, we played, ate, and then I got him ready to come with me to a doctor’s appointment. I’m still have minor UC symptoms here and there, so I want to get them under control before they potentially get worse. I also don’t want to add more drugs to the mix, ya know? Quinn was great during my doctor’s appointment. He played, drank a bottle, and then slept on the ride home. Success!

In the afternoon, Quinn and I met Kerrie for a run outside. The weather was beautiful yesterday””in the low 50s””so we definitely needed to take advantage of it. Kerrie and I took turns running with the jogging stroller and we finished just over 3.5 miles. I am SO HAPPY that Spring is on its way! It was a rough winter, man.
