Winter, well Texas-style winter, hit here this week for a mere 48 hours. I bribed my son with a fire in the good ol' fireplace that we get to use maybe five times a year. My bribery worked, by the way. It's also that time of the year for little guy's yearly cardiology work up. Our appointment is on Thursday and we covet your prayers that morning. This is his first follow- up since stopping his medication last year. I'm praying it's a good one.
Stinkin' holiday party and postpartum bodies don't mix well. Nothing fits right now. I pretty much wear leggings or yoga pants 24/7. I probably wouldn't go through the hassle of finding something and just stay home, but the Zac Brown Band is playing at said holiday party and I think they're fun so I'm there!
So my gal and I hit up the galleria on Wednesday. I nursed her twice in the Nordstrom ladies' lounge, which turns out to be also known as the nursing lounge, along with about five other moms. I found a dress that I think I am going to wear, but I fell in love with these shoes (pictured below) from Madewell that the stylist brought me to try on with the dress. I left without the shoes. Such is life on unpaid maternity leave and honestly, after 9 months of not wearing heels I don't know if I can sport these all night long at a holiday party. I pretty much love them though. Maybe Santa will hear my wishes.
Speaking of postpartum, I'm in a serious fog. I had a package shipped to my old address. As in four years old address. Fortunately that address is just down the street so I left the new homeowner a note. She called the next day and I retrieved my package. Same day I realized this, I also left my keys in the back door, making myself easily accessible to robbers and rapists, all.day.long. Surely this "fog" is not here to stay!? It's gotta be a temporary thing, right!?
Speaking of Santa, my little guy joined me on the couch last weekend for a little catalog browsing. Turns out he wants a train table and "choo-choo trains" from Santa. Surprise, surprise. He is choo-choo obsessed. Every day since then he's asked "when santa coming, mommy?" Time to find an advent calendar. This is the year that Elf on the Shelf is coming to our house. His name is Zelf.
My favorite, Houston area photographer came over on Halloween for Hadley's newborn pictures. She does such an amazing job of chronicling our life for us. Here's a sneak peek.
Better late than never, but I'm linking up with Darci and friends for a little Five on Friday lovin'.
Happy Friday! I'm super excited because this means the husband is home with me for the next two days! I'm still getting used to this whole mom-of-two thing.
