Yesterday I had Drew snap a couple pictures of me + Maxwell before I headed out on a run. Our baby is such a ham right now. Lots of smiles + babbles.
Taking care of him is much easier than it used to be. Max goes to bed between 7-8pm, sleeps about 12 hours, + wakes up once during that period to nurse. Sometimes putting him down for the night takes some rocking, but other times he would prefer we just put him down in his crib + he’ll take care of his own bedtime routine (sucking his thumb).
That caused us to reflect the other night: remember when our baby would scream his head off for an hour before bed + not go to sleep until 11pm? Nothing would work to calm him down, not a single one of the 5 S’s. This was after his dinner time fussy period of 1-2 hours. When I would see other mommas post about their content babies, I would feel a little envious.
During that time I remember a conversation about how difficult our baby was. Was he a medium? Was he medium/hard? We realized, it didn’t really matter…because it isn’t like we’d ever trade him in 🙂 One of the biggest hurdles is that when Drew arrived home from work just happened to coincide with Max’s fussy time. During that period of time, most of the time Drew saw Max he was a fuss ball.
I just wanted to add this to encourage people that are going through a fussy period. Drew + I realize we’ve got hurdles/stages ahead of us, but that’s why we are completely soaking in this easier period. We’ve been enjoying dinner together after our sweet little babe goes down.
Onto the outfit of the week!
Nike Women’s Free 5.0 Tr Fit 5 Training Shoe: in Voltage Green/Chalk Blue/White. I linked to these shoes a couple weeks ago + Drew purchased them for me 🙂 One perk to having a blog. I would highly recommend them. Super comfortable + perfect for gym time + casual time.
Athleta Chi Tank: Every gal needs long tank tops as a staple in their workout wardrobe.
Nike Pro Cool Women’s Training Capris: The capris in the picture are old Lululemon capris. I love bright colored workout gear because they make me feel happier + ready to workout. I picked these out as a similar pick that I would love to wear + they are at a cheaper price point than Lulu. I would go with the photo blue or cosmic purple.
Drew + I are having some of our favorite people in town to celebrate my 30th this weekend. I cannot wait to share pictures with you guys! 🙂 I hope you all have a great weekend too!
