Hi friends, happy Friday! It’s been a busy week! Today is my birthday and we are heading out of town for the weekend, though Ed is surprising me as to where. I will try to post updates on social media.
We had Camryn’s 4 month appointment (and shots), I met with some clients and did some mini projects, and we worked on Camryn’s nap schedule! She has been sleeping really good at night, but napping terribly. I guess I can’t complain, but when babies get overtired they get extremely cranky. So I’m trying to figure out how to prevent her from getting to that phase. We had some “better” naps, so I call that a win.
Here’s some of my favorites from the week! I hope you’ll chime in with some of yours below.
This was my first time finding this in stores. It was refreshing!
How have I never done this before? It’s SO easy. I just put it on the stove in butter for a few minutes, and it softened up. They add SO much flavor to oatmeal. I’ll definitely be doing this again soon!
Frozen Dog Treats & Tater’s Bday
I bought these at the grocery store because Tater’s birthday is tomorrow – we celebrated it last night! I love that we’re one day apart. She loved them last year and I don’t know why I haven’t bought them since but I remembered to buy them now.
Born to Eat
I was gifted this book (affiliate link) from the National Peanut Board since I’m a Peanut Ambassador. It has been an amazing resource so far about how/when to introduce solids to babies, if you’re interested in letting them have a more hands-on, self-feeding approach.
I have started reading it since I am very interested in doing Baby Led Weaning when we introduce solids to Cam. She had her 4th month check up on Monday and we’re still probably a couple months out from introducing them. We may start around 6 months. She has started becoming very interested in our food (which is one of the “readiness” signs), but she can’t hold her head up all the way on her own (though she’s almost there)!
Great Harvest Bread Bar
This bar was amazing. It proved to be a helpful snack when I was out and about running errands. I will definitely be buying this again. I need to try to recreate it.
I’ve been really trying to listen to my body to figure out what kind of movement I’m craving by the day. I got a few runs in this week, this workout, and one day was just light weights and stretching. It feels nice to have no pressure as to what I “have to” or “should” do!
