Friday Favorites

Well, three weeks in to this new baby thing,  I am beginning to feel more like myself.  He is still eating about every two hours,  but I am slowly seeing a schedule begin to take shape.  The girls started back to school from their week off and I have enjoyed having the one-on-one time with my little buddy!

Have you heard of the Netflix original, The Unshakeable Kimmie Schmidt? It is hilarious! Besides some of the language, it is a relatively clean show and will make you laugh out loud a lot! Several bloggers that I visit regularly were raving about it and after one episode I am already hooked.  I usually watch an episode a day when I am nursing and need a little pick me up!

This week I also finished a book that you need to read immediately. Yes, it is that good! I was familiar with Boo Mama through her blog,  and this book did not disappoint.  Given all we have been through over the past year with the move to Raleigh, move back home, new job for me, new church, new house, and now a new baby...I really believe that home IS where my people are. We are so blessed to be surrounded by people who love us and we get to do life together. This book actually deserves its own post so I can share all my highlighted sections...maybe I'll get to that soon. ;)

I snapped this picture the other night as I was putting the girls to bed. Mackaylan always chooses what she is going to wear the night before and places her outfit on the floor (right next to a chair I might add!) Anyway,  I have been working with Lydia to pick out her outfit as well in order to make mornings a bit easier.  After she decided what she was going to wear she was quick to take it to Mackaylan's room (where she has been sleeping) and putbher outfit right next to KK's. It was just a sweet moment that I want to remember.

Ace had quite a few firsts this week.... His first time taking the girls to school, his first time to the District Office, his first time to Bucket Group, and his first time to Bilo. Whew, a busy week for a little man!

So, there you have it.  A few of my favorites from the week. Now, let's see what the weekend has to hold.

Happy Saturday!

I love all the pictures of Baby Ace! Thank you for sharing him. I feel like our little men should be best buddies and can't wait to follow along as he grows. Yay for getting on a decent feeding schedule...I think that is all we can really ask for at this stage is a good pattern of eating and sleeping, right? I know I have been super lucky to have good sleeping babies. The girls look like they love their baby brother bunches. And yes, don't I know about a year (or month) filled with so many new changes. Haha! I selfishly wish you still lived in the Raleigh area now so we could be real life buddies, but that book does sound like a good one that I would really appreciate. :-)

I'm going to have to get that book! I've heard it was good from quite a few blogs now. Baby Ace is so adorable! I love that Lydia put her outfit right by Mackaylan's. Too cute!
