Life with a newborn”¦
Accomplishing things that I used to do without a second thought are now some of the biggest achievements of my day””and yesterday was one of those days. I was on fire getting things done, and it felt awesome. Haha! That said, here are some of my little victories from yesterday!
I had bacon on my breakfast sandwich. Haha! I usually save bacon for the weekends because it’s an extra step in the breakfast sandwich-making process, but I cooked some up and it was well worth the effort. This sandwich had a wedge of Light Creamy Swiss from The Laughing Cow on it. Delish!
Q and I ran 3 miles and walked one with the stroller. It was a little chilly yesterday morning, so we waited until mid-morning to get out and move.
Around lunchtime, Q and I made a quick trip to Whole Foods for a few groceries. He loved looking around and checking everything out. (His expression in the photo below totally cracks me up! Haha!)
I made Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken for dinner. It was seriously so easy””just throw the ingredients in the crockpot and you’re good to go! FYI: It turned out so well! I will definitely make this recipe again!
I cut Q’s fingernails. Up until a couple of weeks ago, I was filing down Q’s nails with an emery board, which sort of worked. It left his nails kind of jagged, and it didn’t seem very efficient since it took me so long to make any sort of progress, so I finally bought some baby nail clippers and they work so much better. The first time I used them, I was super nervous””I didn’t want to cut Q’s tiny fingers””but I’m a pro now!
I took Q and Murphy for an afternoon walk, and I didn’t run over the pug with the stroller. Kidding! Although, he’s quite the daredevil running in front of it without a care in the world. I keep telling him he’s going to lose a pug leg if he’s not careful!
Question of the Day
