Easy Like Sunday Morning


I can’t believe it’s 8:45 on Sunday night. Thanks, a lot, Daylight Savings Time.

We have had quite the weekend. On Thursday I picked Blaire up from daycare and I was told that she wasn’t herself all day. Crying, sleepy and wouldn’t eat. Not like her at all. When I got her jacket on her, she laid down on the floor like she was going to go to sleep. Her eyes were rimmed with red and she definitely didn’t seem like herself. I called her doctor and they were able to get us in that night. Sure enough, she had lots of white spots on her swollen little tonsils. Her strep test came back negative and she didn’t have a fever. So they sent us on our way with orders for lots of fluids, rest and tylenol, as needed. On Friday when she woke up, another bottom tooth had popped through! I stayed home with her that day (and attempted to get some work done from home during nap time!) so that she could sleep in and get lots of rest.

This weekend she has still been whiny and hasn’t been eating as much as normal. The one thing I could get her to eat on Thursday night and Friday was chicken and stars soup. She LOVED it. She goes back to the doctor tomorrow for her one year wellness visit/shots, so they’ll recheck her throat then. I imagine it’s still a little swollen, but then again now maybe it’s just the tooth to blame for my cranky girl! She was definitely happy to get out of the house today for lunch and some shopping. I was so happy to have my smily girl back. It was the PERFECT Sunday!

We’re gearing up for another crazy week and weekend. We’re getting our bedroom ready for our new bed and bedroom set to get delivered next Saturday! I CAN’T WAIT! It is supposed to be in the 50s starting tomorrow and I’m super excited at the thought of being able to go for walks in the park. Blaire was just big enough that she could swing and now she’s going to be able to run around the playgrounds. Other things I’m excited for: open-toe shoes, chubby baby legs in shorts and sunshine! We have a wedding coming in a few weekends and I got Blaire this dress and cardigan to wear. They are THE CUTEST! I’m hoping the warm weather will stick around and she won’t have to cover up her adorable little arms, but we’ll see! Have a great week! xo

    Poor girl. Glad she’s feeling better and more like herself today! Teething is no fun!

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
