This week has been all over the map, lots of hugs as well as tears. Ezra is cutting his last upper incisor (are you tired of hearing about my baby's teeth yet?), making this his fourth tooth in two weeks. So yeah, the poor kiddo has just been a bit of a mess, but we're trying our best to keep him distracted and comfortable (translation: orajel, lots of singing and dancing, tons of trips to the park and walks around the block). When he's not in teething pain he's our giddy little baby, exploring the apartment, finding all of the cracks in my baby-proofing, and loving his new found freedom. I hope after this one pops through we get a bit of a break in the teething department. This poor baby's little gums can only take so much!
But as always there is lots to be grateful for...
Roasted veggies. Oh, how I have missed roasting asparagus, green beans, and brussels sprouts! This is pretty much all I have eaten this week and it has been awesome. Roasted veg with rice, pasta, or unadulterated on its own. So good!
Getting an entire new wardrobe for Ez on trade at Once Upon A Child. When all was said and done I actually walked away with cash in my pocket. Second hand children's stores are just the best.
Feeling rested and rejuvenated after a great weekend. A little getaway was exactly what I needed (but more on that later)!
Baby shoes! I'm usually of the baby shoes are ridiculous variety, but I just bought Ez his first pair and damn if they don't just melt my heart into a blubbering mess every time he wears them. Seriously, this kind of cute should be outlawed!
ALSO: Ez's asparagus face/ Some time with my mama/ Opening every window in my apartment and leaving them open all night/ Evening strolls in the park/ Spring seasonal beer/Revisiting old novels/ Homemade cappuccinos/ Inventive baby-proofing
As always I'd love to hear what's bringing you joy this week.
