Hey guys! I hope everyone had a great weekend! We had a really fun one. We took Oliver to Olbrich Botanical Gardens (he’s obsessed with flowers right now), went on a pizza date as a fam, hit up target, and took Oliver to Eplegaarden, an apple orchard to pick apples and enjoy the beautiful fall weather Wisconsin is having right now. Jam packed, but SO much fun. I figured it had been awhile since I had done a 7 Things post and what better way then to share all these cute apple photos with it 🙂 1. I am eating Smart Sweets right now and I am just obsessed. The whole bag is only 3g of sugar. Plus, they are plant based, vegan AND free from sugar alcohols. Like, a total guilt free way to eat candy. I’m into it. Not to mention these will be great for Oliver when he gets old enough and figures out what candy is. Until then, I will be eating them all.
Happy Birthday Oliver! I can’t believe how crazy fast the first year went. It’s kind of insane. I feel like everyday he is learning something new. He’s so smart, so smiley and so beyond sweet. I can’t even begin to explain how amazing it has been watching him grow, watching him laugh and watching him learn to scoot, crawl and walk. One of my favorite parts of watching my baby boy morph into a toddler is watching those tiny little wheels turning in his head. Watching him figure out how to open a door, how to walk from one side of the room to the other, exploring and testing his boundaries, and pointing to people by name. It is truly incredible. My little tiny human isn’t so tiny anymore. And while a big piece of me is sad, the other piece of me is so beyond excited to watch him grow into a handsome little boy. He stole my heart on day one and continues to do so everyday. Oliver has truly turned ordinary into extraordinary.
Happy Friday everyone! What a weird place in time we are in right now. Our whole world is shut down. It’s Spring, 60 degrees out, and everyone is ordered to stay at home until MAY. What!? Currently my situation is a lot like most of the world where my job was deemed “non essential” and I’m currently unemployed. At first I was super upset and didn’t know what on earth I was gonna do with myself. But, it didn’t take me long to find the greater good in things.
My sweet baby boy has arrived. He is everything I imagined and even more. You truly don’t know how much you can love until you become a mother. You immediately become protective, intuitive, and selfless over night. In just a month your cute little blob of a human (sorry Ollie Bear) becomes your life.
