I hope you join us for another link-up of Thoughts for Thursday!
+ Brody met his teachers for Mother's Day Out on Tuesday. They actually came to the house and met with us which was kind of fun. Brody acted super shy at first being very clingy to me, but in a matter of minutes; he warmed up and dragged them both on the floor to play with him.
+ He posed in his chair for them to take a picture and sang along to "the farmer and the dell" for them with his little toy.
+ Right after the teachers left, we packed up the car and threw on our swim suits to go meet our friends over in Gulf Shores for the afternoon. These boys are so cute together and Brody couldn't wait to go play in the pool with Baylor! They had a blast in the pool and had fun wrecking the condo with their millions of toys!
+ We got home that evening just in time to meet my family for a quick dinner. I was pretty exhausted at this point because neither of us got a nap. Well Brody got a 40 min nap in the car I guess, but I was a bit overtired. The kids found the splash pad after dinner and cracked us up as they went in fully clothed! Cutest little cousins!!
+ I'm getting to that stage in my pregnancy where I'm just tired. I'm tired of being dragged and bossed around by a 2 year old. And I'm hot and sweaty all the time. But I still have a to-do list a mile long of the 9 million things I want to get done before new babies arrival. It's so tough deciding between to-do list and sleep each afternoon, but somehow sleep keeps winning out!
+ Speaking of being so tired, Brody wants to keep dragging my outside to swing in the 90 degree heat. I have no place to sit and the swing is ALWAYS in direct sunlight. This morning, the 3rd thing to come out of his mouth before I could even get him out of the crib was "swing"?? Are you f'in kidding me, kid?? I haven't even dreamed of my first cup of coffee yet and you think I'm going to push you on the swing in this heat? So here's what he looks like after I get a cup of coffee, push him for approx. 2 min and then venture inside to the AC. I watch his sad face through the window as he hopes someone might come out and push him again :( #momoftheyear!
+ Madelyn's baby book arrived this week from Emily Ley and it's even more perfect and beautiful than I imagined. Click on the link for more pretty pictures of the inside and a list of all the pages included! And it's even better in person!
+ So I mentioned above that I jumped on the pumpkin band wagon this week. Hubby was out of town last night and so my dinner plate looked something like this! I came across the recipe below for Pumpkin hummus and I just happened to have all the ingredients on hand. I used Stacy's Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips and they were delicious with it! I was in heaven :)
For the hummus:
1 Cup Reduced-sodium Chickpeas, de-skinned (180g)*
3/4 Cup Canned pumpkin
1/4 Cup Maple syrup
2 tsp Pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp Coconut oil, melted + additional for drizzling, if desired.
+ I'm off to wrap up some errands to get ready for the weekend. Is anyone attending some football games this weekend?? Tell me about it so I can live vicariously through you please!!!!!!
Now it's your turn.
