I knew that this past weekend would be a good one as soon as MT picked up take-out from Big View Diner on Friday.
Cooking is one of my favorite things to do, but even so, it is always nice to have a break every so often.
On Saturday, our friends Kirsten and Justin, who are expecting a baby boy/playmate and best friend for Michael in December, came over to meet the new addition to our family. I was very excited that a pregnant Brittney visited as well.
And of course, my little man slept through the entire thing.
We were all entertained by the funny faces he makes while he’s sleeping though.
Brittney made homemade vegan pumpkin bread for me, which by coincidence, tasted incredible with some whipped pumpkin honey from Kirsten.
It was so much fun to see everyone and to gush over the cute baby bumps.
I miss my pregnant belly now that it’s gone, especially the built-in tray table feature that it offered.
The weather was incredible here on Saturday, so MT, Michael, Lucy, and I took our first family walk around the neighborhood after everyone went home.
Once again, Michael slept through the whole thing.
That evening, MT and I had a dinner date…in our under-utilized dining room.
I made my chicken cacciatore and some salads, which we enjoyed with some red wine while Baby Einstein music played in the background.
My how things have changed… but for the better.
And then in typical new parent style, we completely passed out on the couch at 9:30 pm while watching Back to the Future.
We were born to party.
On Sunday, our friends Lindsay and Thomas came over with their adorable 11 week old baby girl Lila (who also just so happens to be Michael’s future wife).
Michael decided to sleep through most of that visit too. He’s clearly a party animal like his mommy and daddy.
He did wake up for a diaper change though, and everyone had the pleasure of watching as I received a massive pee shower that led to mommy and baby outfit changes.
I’m now thinking that, in addition to a rain poncho, I also need a pair of goggles and an umbrella when I change my son’s diapers.
