Five Question Friday

Happy Friday everyone! This week has gone too quickly with having Mr.D home. It's been so nice! We haven't done anything super exciting, but it's nice to have him around instead of talking to a baby and a dog all day ;) Plus he got to spend time with Amelia, which is good for both of them!

Here are your five questions for this Friday:

{one} have you ever looked at someone's phone or email without them knowing?

{two} pretend you are walking your dog and you run out of poop bags and of course your dog chooses that moment to do his business. Do you pretend you don't see your dog pooping or do you go home to get a bag and come back to pick it up?

{three} have you ever farted in the grocery store aisle and tried to pretend it wasn't you?

{four} if someone paid you a million dollars to give up a food or beverage, what would you give up?

{five} would you rather lose your two front teeth or a big patch of hair at the front of your head?

Have a great weekend everyone!

Training Tuesday

I haven't shared my workouts in a long time {probably because they were pretty tame while I was pregnant}, but I thought I would as I'm starting to get back into the swing of it. I was cleared to workout at my six week check up, but haven't gone back as hard as I was before I got pregnant. I will admit that some days I have zero desire to workout if I am super tired or if Amelia just wants to be held. Those days are the ones that I am okay with only getting a walk in with Harley....better than nothing and you learn to go with the flow with babies :)

I'm also not training anything at the moment, but am thinking about signing up for the 10K at the Calgary marathon. Someone tell me sign up already!

Scenes from the weekend

Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend? Ours was very quiet and laid back, but nothing wrong with that. 

{friday} the day started off really good when Amelia slept from 11-6:30am!! I woke up and looked at my cellphone and was so surprised at the time. It was wonderful! Neither of us felt like cooking when Mr.D got home from work, so we went to grab burgers from Smash Burger. A quick stop at Wal-Mart after and then we were home watching tv for the night.

{saturday} in the morning, Mr.D let me sleep in which was greatly appreciated! In the afternoon, we walked up to the toy and clothing sale that was happening in our neighbourhood. We got there towards the end, so I didn't end up buying anything. We went for a walk afterwards and it was so foggy and cold out! I summoned some motivation and took Harley for a quick run in the afternoon. We ended up just hanging out at home for the rest of the day and watched many episodes of Parenthood...we are addicted!

She's too cute not to share

{sunday} another sleep in for me (I'm spoiled!) and a quiet morning at home. We took Harley for a long walk in the afternoon and then Mr.D made a fabulous rib dinner....I think I'm still full from it.

Mr.D is off work this week, so I'm looking forward to having him home with us. I'm also going to get my hair done tomorrow, so I'm looking forward to a little "me" time and some new hair.

Tell me: how was your weekend?

{amelia}: two months

You can find her one month update here.

Weight: 11lbs 5 ounces (50th percentile)

Length: 57.5cms (50th percentile)

Hair/eyes: still has lots of her brown hair. She's lost a bit of it though and the stuff that is underneath looks way lighter. Still has her very blue eyes.

  • all of the same things as last month
  • looking around and bright things (ie: lights) 
  • all of the same things as last month
  • being overtired which is a new one for her 
Eating: she is still eating every 3-4 hours during the day and the night stretches are getting a bit longer. She will sleep from 10:30-11 until between 3:30-5:30am. The other night she wake up until 5:20am and I was so surprised when I saw the time on my cell phone! She is still 100% breastfed and I am still pumping a bottles worth of milk to freeze each morning.

Sleeping: she has a loose sleep schedule during the day and the nights are a bit more regular. I still feed her between 10-11pm and then she falls right asleep. She will sleep until 3:30-5:30am and then will go back down for another 3-4 hour stretch which is nice. We still swaddle her at night as she flails her arms too much. She will also take a nap in her crib in the morning anywhere between 20 minutes to 60 minutes.

  • she had her immunizations the other night and poor girl cried so hard :(
  • she has been a bit fussier lately, which I think is due to a developmental leap (I've been reading a bit about them on The Wonder Weeks app)
  • we've had a couple tough evenings as she will not settle for Mr.D, but will settle down right away for me
  • she is way more alert now and will stare at bright lights/objects and will follow voices/sounds
  • is smiling way more often

This and that

I've got a bunch of random things for you today :)

  • Amelia is two months old today! Where the heck has time gone?! We go for her shots on Wednesday, so I'm waiting to post her two month update until we find out her weight and length. Though I took her to the community clinic last week and she was 11lbs then...chunking right up :)
  •  we've tried a couple of new recipes lately and have found two really good ones. The first one is for turkey, bacon and avocado panini's {thanks Lindsey for the idea!}. They were so easy and good! The second is for cheesy mushroom and broccoli quinoa casserole. Another easy and delicious recipe!
  • I won a giveaway from Sugarplum Lane Boutique and I can't decide what to get. Someone help me decide!
  • I'm also trying to decide what races I should run this year. I'm thinking of doing the 10K at the Calgary Marathon. What else should I run?
  • has anyone made lactation cookies? I've seen a coupler recipes, but just wondering if anyone can recommend a recipe
  • Mr.D has been making fun of my bounce/moves that I use to calm Amelia down, so he decided to video it so I could see it. I think he's secretly jealous of my calming techniques ;) Any other moms have sweet moves like this?
That's all I've got for you today. Tell me something random happening in your life :)
