Trying something a little different this week with five things on Friday. :)
1 // Last weekend, we celebrated my niece's first birthday with a Frozen/Valentine's Day party at the park. She's the sweetest, cutest, happiest little girl and it was awesome to spend a sunny afternoon with her, her big sis (my adorable goddaughter!), and the rest of the family. As stressed as I am about all things baby, I'm really glad this little one will have cousins close in age to hang out with.
2 // And speaking of cousins, I just found out my sister, who is also pregnant, is being induced next Tuesday! She has preeclampsia so her docs feel early induction is the best option. I'm a little worried for her and hoping everything goes okay, but it's exciting to know my little nephew Levi will be here in just a few days! So many babies in my life right now...
3 // This no-added-sugar thing has been super tricky, and it's only Day 3. I know I jokingly said sugar is my crack, but that is a legit analogy. I've even had withdrawal symptoms - headaches, low energy, moodiness. Kickin' a bad habit ain't easy, folks.
4 // Gia has been super cuddly lately and while I'd like to think it's because she wants to snuggle with me, I think it's really Molly she wants to be close to. She used to hate being held or sitting on my lap but on Valentine's Day, she randomly decided it's actually not so bad. When I hold her by herself, she still doesn't fully relax but when Molly is on my lap, too, she crawls off her pillow and snuggles up with both of us. And normally Molly is a jealous little piggy and doesn't like me petting them both at the same time, but lately she's been perfectly happy letting Gia snuggle while I hold them. As a result, Gia's been getting a little more cuddly every day and I love it.
5 // We're planning to see Hot Tub Time Machine 2 this weekend. I know what you're thinking - "It looks so dumb and with all the Oscar-nominated movies still in theaters, isn't there a better use of your time??" Maybe. But I thought the same thing about the first one, then decided late one night to watch it on TV and it has become one of my favorite comedies ever. The sequel looks equally dumb so I'm hoping it turns out to be just as surprisingly enjoyable as the first.
What are your plans for the weekend?
