We’ve been dealing with a case of the cranky almost six week olds here at the L.H. household, so this post is just a catch-all of things that have gone on since the last post.
For starters, last Wednesday morning Josh left for an overnight trip to Chicago.
We both missed him very much, but he was gone less than forty eight hours, so we survived okay.
I also got in our old school diapers
The infant orange edge prefolds from Green Mountain Diapers
They don’t get any more classic than just that. But please note, no icky diaper pins. The modern update is to use a Snappi
Someone also learned to reach for things this week! (She’s grabbing at the camera lens cover)
We also had visitors!
Papaw and Marme came back to visit!
And they brought Mamaw to visit!
There are no words to describe how special this was for me to see – my heart still breaks that there won’t be any pictures of Marion and Papaw, but I know I’m so blessed to be able to have this one.
We also enjoyed some serious shower time. One of the surest ways to calm her down when she’s fussy is to stick her in the shower with me.
Despite the suspicious look on her face, she really does enjoy it!
And the highlight of the weekend – our first race!
It was an early morning start
Since it was The Great Pumpkin Fun Run, we had a bit of fun with dress up. Thanks Aunt Amanda for the super cute outfit!
Marion and I did the 3K walk/jog and Josh did the 5K run. Although due to the fact that the 3K turnaround wasn’t clearly marked (well, at least not clear enough for me and half the field to see!) it turned into a 5K for us as well.
We were pretty tired (especially when I realized the mistake!) but we finished and had a great time
Her little shirt says “Mommy’s under my spell” – so true!
I mean, how can you resist that face?
She slept through the whole race, but woke up right as we were crossing the finish line. So we hung out in the park after and someone got their breakfast.
The cutest little pumpkin in the patch!
And, if you ever wonder why there’s always at least one limb blurry in the photos we take … well here are two videos that might further explain that …
