Mother’s Day Tradition

Mother’s Day Tradition

Our Mother’s Day tradition is going to pick strawberries. It’s a fun time to be outside together, and we get amazing strawberries to take home!

This year, Remi got to come along for the fun!

She looked SO cute in her cowgirl romper.

It was her first time forward facing, and she was always looking down at everything- so you can’t see her face here! ha! 

We found picture perfect strawberries!

This little toodle bug even got to eat one right off the vine. 

Can you say DIVA?

It was fun to spend the morning all together!

This girl is getting SO big! It’s all happening so fast!

She got to wear this cute romper (I am in love with rompers, y’all) that her grandmas bought her. So we had to have a photo shoot in the yard.

We had lunch after church at our Chinese buffet. We love the family that owns it. We gave Remi a couple peach slices, and the owner was joking that he was gonna charge her if she ate any more! ha!

Our Hot Springs family was in town, so they got lots of Remi snuggles! Caitlyn was great and kept Remi for a while for me Saturday so I could go workout and get a pedicure. Remi loves her Cait!

I say it often, but it’s a shame this baby gets no attention. 

We took a Sunday drive to NWA so daddy could shop at Cabelas during their sale. I love watching things through her eyes. So sweet to see her take it all in!

We had sushi after, and she was SO good. She loves this spinning toy and it’s great for restaurants. Quiet fun. 

She looked SO cute in her little romper and bib one day last week at daycare. 

And I LOVE this onesie. Actually, two different people got us one (in two different sizes) and she wore it one day last week. It says “I’m fixin to cry ya’ll”

Lastly, Remi came to my work Friday, and my boss is known for taking great pics when people’s kids come by. We were no exception! LOVED seeing my girl during the day!

I can’t believe how quickly time flies. They do say the days are long but the years are short. So true!


Week 27 Highlights

Week 27 Highlights

Oh Remi, you had a FULL week this week!

We started with the weekend. We started sleep coaching and were focused on naps. But she napped like a CHAMP at Daddy’s friend’s house on Saturday.  Ty took the day off, so we spent the day with friends. She slept amazingly in the Ergo on and off all day.

And she looked like a Diva out in the sun.

Sunday was a different story. I had to sing in all three church services, so she was “off” and we ended up leaving after I sang to go home and nap.

Monday evening, we all surprised Tyler’s grandpa for his birthday by showing up to the singing.

He was SO excited to see his girl. He’s smitten.

She loved the live music! Mama even got in on the action and sang some Patsy Cline songs with the band.

She’s still eating great!  She hasn’t loved a couple of foods (I mean, she eats them, but not with the crazy voracity of some others), but she CHOWED DOWN on some blueberries. I put them in the mesh feeder and she crushed them to a pulp. (It’s a great distraction while I cook! Win, win!)

Monday, Grammy took her to the library for story time, and I took an early lunch and joined them.  Even though it’s geared for 2 and under, she was a bit small for the stories and songs (lots of hand movements and stuch).  However, girlfriend was enamored with the bubbles.  She was thinking “Toys just keep falling from the sky!”

The rest of the week was full of early bedtimes (hello sleep coaching!). She’s doing great though. It’s NOT a cry-it-out-method – in fact, it’s very responsive to her needs. But it’s teaching her self-soothing skills.  She’s so alert and active that sleep comes difficult to her. It takes her a long time to settle and naps were a struggle. But she’s improving SO quickly. She’s a smart kiddo, she’s shown us that before, so I know she will figure out this sleep thing fast.

 


Week 26 Highlights

Week 26 Highlights

This was an exciting week- Remi started solid foods!  We had done some cereal before, but these were brand new flavors!

She LOVED the sweet potatoes and peas. She’s pretty independent and wants to feed herself. While that’s a little messier, she’s getting the hang of it pretty quickly.

She wore an ADORABLE RicRac & Ruffles Easter outfit. She was feeling it! And of course, brother Pippin had to get in the photo shoot.

On Saturday, Tyler had the day off.  We did some errands and shopping and this big girl got to sit up in the buggie. She was so proud of herself!

Tyler wore her around Target for the first time ever.  I usually wear her, but I’m in a walking boot right now (I have tarsal tunnel- like carpal tunnel but in your ankle)…so he wore her so I was hobbling around with a baby in tow. She enjoyed it and got in a good nap. 

And she looked ADORABLE in her cute Matilda Jane hat.

My Aunt Bobby and Uncle Jerry came in from NWA to have lunch and they got to meet Remi for the first time! She loved them!

Week 26 was full of fun! And in a flash, half a year is over! I can hardly believe it!
