Weekending + Lately

Hey ya'll! Long time no talk huh? I have been so busy that I am literally happy to see Monday - weird huh? Today I am enjoying some DVR catching up, blogging, watching little A nap on the monitor and we're all still in our PJ's...true story! If you read my post last week, you know that my bestie Radford came in from Atlanta for a few days and then we went up to Hollins to ramble around. She is 23 weeks preggo and it was definitely time for her to get in my life. She is having a little boy and I cannot wait to meet that little guy! Andi bonded with her right away so the time together was perfect. I miss my close girlfriends so much and wish we were all in the same city. Her baby shower is in December so Miss A and I will be taking a roadtrip!

Hollins was fabulous, as usual, and its safe to say that I'm already hoping for a little legacy in the making. I bought her the cutest Hollins baby bloomers and of course got myself a new long-sleeved tee. We ate at our old favorite restaurant, drove the loop around campus and took some great pictures! It's so hard to believe that 6 years have passed since we all roamed that campus together and 10 years since we first stepped foot on it. Best decision of my life - choosing an all women's college like Hollins! On Saturday after Radford left, we had our last wedding of the season. Despite the cold, it was an absolute blast! More girl time for me and the bride and groom are our neighbors which made the wedding less than a mile away! (Can we say no driving needed so bring on the wine?!)

Miss A slept 7 hours straight for some reason that night, making me hopeful that this so-called sleep regression is ending. We had her check-up as well and she apparently "isn't where she needs to be" with her weight so the pediatrician recommended we start solids 3 times a day now instead of once. She is 13.4 pounds and in the 5th percentile but to me she looks totally normal. She's just petite! I'm not too worried! We bought the baby brezza though to make our own baby food and I am LOVING it! Post to come soon I promise. Also, any advice on practicing sitting up? She wants nothing to do with it! Mama's help! Oh and last night was a huge milestone for us and Andi. She slept upstairs in her own crib! She did fabulous! I only had to go up there once to soothe her and then of course I cheated and brought her down to our bed at around 6am (haha)

Needless to say there is a lot going on in our household so thanks for reading this ramble of a post. Linking up today with Biana and Meghan for a little update weekending

  8. Trust your instincts if you think Andi's weight is fine! Food before is one is just for fun typically, so if anything she should get more breastmilk. Solids will just fill up her tummy without offering as much nutrition. Just some thoughts! She is as cute as ever!

  11. We just had Vivian's 6 month appointment, and she is clocking in at a little less than 50th percentile at just under 16 pounds, and she looks tiny to me! However, in looking back at Caleb's 6 month update, he was just 15 pounds and was only 19th percentile for weight - and now he is one of the tallest children in his class! I'm sure Andi is just fine, but like Laura said above, maybe try a bit more breastmilk in addition to the solids!:)

  12. I am at the other end of the baby weight spectrum - Jack has some weight to spare! But, not too much! Like you I think he's just right & will even out once He's moving more! I don't know about sitting up - I think Jack just started doing it on his own but, even still loses his balance & topples over! HAHA! I think it may be just one of those things that she'll do in her own time. Like Jack is 8 1/2 months & really wants nothing to do with crawling. We try with him but, He gets so ticked. He gets around in his own way though lol! & The Baby Brezza!! AHHHH! Love that thing so much!! I'm trying to work on getting a post together for "how much of X makes X" but, I'm having a hard time with the graphics. Anyways, hope to have it up soon! So glad you had such a fun weekend!!

  16. She is just itty bitty and there's nothing wrong with that! And that's so nice for you so you don't have to be hauling around a giant like my Olivia. She's been in the 90th percentile since she was about 6 months old and I swear some days I think I'm gonna throw my back out! Haha.
