This weekend my mom was around and helped me get so much stuff done. I had a list of stupid shit that I just couldn't manage to get done so I crossed a lot off and damn it feels good. And in the best news ever we got a new couch. If you've been reading this blog for the last few years then you may be smiling with me cause I talked about it so much that is was kinda silly. I feel like I've been shopping for the perfect couch for years but yesterday we walked into West Elm sat on two couches and boom it was ours. Olive was being a shit head and besides waking up Otto she was going crazy in the store so we didn't have much time to ponder this, which is actually good for me. I'm a terrible decision maker so she probably did us a favor. By oh man am I excited!
Otto turned 5 months on saturday. He is officially sitting up. He still gets a little wobble here and there but for the most part he's got it down. He's seems pretty excited about it, mostly because now he can get his feet in his mouth pretty easy which is super strange to watch. His sleeping is still crappy at night but for the first time in my life I'm not analyzing anything and just going with it. I feel like with Olive I spent so much time with the why of everything and in the end it just is what it is. I get to catch up on all my blogs, pinterest, and anything else being up every couple hours. That's exciting right? Kidding it sucks but this too shall pass. Right right? This age is super fun, maybe my favorite so far. He is starting to show his personality, super cuddly, but not mobile so still my little baby. He is still beyond obsessed with Olive. He pretty much just laughs at her all day and wants to be anywhere she is. It's pretty darn cute.
The 11:00 hour is approaching which means Otto should be waking up so off I go!
|My mom bought her this outfit. Its hideous but she LOVES it.|
|Mint chip for everyone.|
|Post nap crazy hair.|
|Hammock lounging. I may put him in overalls forever.|
|Olive took out all his toys and decorated him.|
|She found this seaweed and was pretending she was rapunsel. I think I blew her mind when I clipped it in and it stayed.|
|This was my brothers shirt when he was a little one.|
|I let her wear a tutu to school. Also she is looking like such a big kid to me.|
|Coffee hangs with my friend Alexa.|
|Both kids were sleeping and I did this. It was magical.|
|I think Bones is the one laying the eggs.|
|Opie knows her name. I know its weird but she does.|
|Facetime with Sonia.|
|I added green onions and radish to mine. I'm not a salad for dinner person but this was good!|
|We went to the Huntington Library. I reserved free tickets a month in advance so I was pretty excited as I've never been. This was part of the science area. The most amazing drawings from maybe the 1600's?|
|There was a section on childbirth. I love this shit.|
|I don't know if its the fact that I've had kids but I'm fascinated by all aspects of birth.|
|Rose garden. Smelled so good.|
|We had fun but I don't think its the best place for kids (at least my kids) Olive wasn't super into looking at everything and was pretty antsy most of the time. The grounds are massive and you could seriously spend the whole day just wandering.|
|She did however like the tea service. I mean how can you go wrong with scones and tea?|
