We had a great weekend! It was pretty monumental in that we left Hadley with a non-family, non-friend babysitter for the first time! I mean...the little girl that watched her is a friend :) We did know her. But she's a high school student, so it was one of "those" babysitting situations. I was actually totally comfortable with it, mainly because I really trusted her. We left Hadley with a sitter so that we could go out with Brad's family to dinner, and afterwards we hit up our favorite local live music bar for some drinks and dancing. I didn't get any pictures unfortunately - seriously, will I EVER get better at that, I doubt it - but it was a super fun night.
Hadley's grandpa sent her a potty chair this last week! It's a little too early for it but now that she's walking she loves to try and sit on things. It's the cutest thing to watch her find random shelves/objects, turn herself around and try to fit her little butt on it :)
Proof she loves it! And how cute are those little moccasin booties??
Sunday morning we had an "off" week at church (our church only meets every other Sunday, we attend small group meetings once a week) so the three of us went for a walk down to the coffee shop and then took Hadley to the park. The weather here has been GORGEOUS lately - the sun is warm and the breeze is cool, so it's just about perfect. As you can see, Hadley loves the swing -
Sunday afternoon I made a meal for some friends that just had a baby girl - I made a copy cat recipe of the Olive Garden's Chicken Gnocchi soup. I told my friend that it's a "special occasion" soup because it's definitely NOT low-calorie! But it has carrots and spinach in it so that makes it healthy, right ;)
Today I'm working on re-arranging Hadley's room. We never had a crib bumper in her crib, and though I would now be totally fine with one, I really don't feel like spending money on one if we don't need it. But anyway, because of not having a bumper she recently discovered the electric outlet right next to her crib. It has cords plugged into it and after her nap I would come in to find her fan off because she had unplugged the cord. Yeah, not a good situation, so for about a week I had a blanket tied around the slats so that she couldn't get to it, so today I'm moving her crib to a different wall. I'm also moving our rocking armchair into her room, it had been in our room up until today and it was always a pain to have to take her out of the room to rock her if she woke up at night. Her room is TEENY TINY so it's all going to be pretty crammed in there!
I'm looking forward to the week - the weather's supposed to be nice, I think we're going to go to a new play group and our poor little puppy is getting fixed. I feel bad for him, but also hoping it calms him down some - we can only hope, the little guy is a ball of energy these days!
