I'm always excited for Friday, even if it doesn't quite mean the R&R it used to. This week was a hectic one, but still pretty great. The weather has been amazing - windows open, leaves changing, sweater-and-boot-wearing kind of weather. This is hands down my favorite time of year...
...except for the ridiculous amounts of box elder bugs that are clinging to our window screens! It's disgusting. I was warned about all the bugs in MN, but hadn't really run into many until now. Then again we don't really spend a lot of time in the wilderness, where I'm guessing they tend to reside. ;)
L and I have been going on lots of walks since the weather has been so nice. She's loving sitting in the stroller and shopping carts like a big girl. She's such a little ham...anything that allows her to catch someone's eye and give them a giggle and a smile with that one little tooth. I just eat it up, and so does everyone else.
I even got a little mommy date with a new girlfriend out here while the dads watched the babies. We went to Porter Creek, this awesome restaurant nearby with the best patio we've found yet. Many a bottle of wine have been consumed there this summer. It was sooo nice to get out for an evening! Thanks, hubs, for taking care of our little miss! xx
Have a great weekend!

People aren't joking when they say these little things grow fast. Within a matter of weeks our tiny girl went from kinda sorta sitting up on her own to a constant roly poly, to a scoot-across-the-roomer, to a pro crawler and stair climber, to a stand-on-anythinger. I literally can't take my eyes off her- as soon as she's set down she's flying across the room to anything she can stand on. And then (if I haven't sped over to her already) falling and hitting her head. It is EXHAUSTING. But, I seriously love that baby. It is so so fun to watch her grow and learn. I love that girl more than life and to see the joy she gets out of climbing a set of stairs (usually towards a cat) makes my heart happy. Just look at that smile and those cheeks! Did I already mention I love her?
P.S. Congrats to our friends Heather and Will that had their first baby today! Their little boy is the cutest...we CAN'T WAIT to meet him!!

Before I had Lyla I knew I would be the coolest mom. I wouldn't worry about germs, I wouldn't care when she was crying, and I definitely wouldn't freak out about the small things...then she was born. I was immediately the paranoid weirdo that I couldn't stand. I mean I practically needed a brown paper bag any time someone held her. If they coughed around her? Forget about it. I pretty much have her pediatrician on speed dial and take her in monthly, at the slightest sign of a runny nose or cough. I am everything I despise. So, needless to say we were at the doctor yesterday because L has been messing with her ear and I was sure she had an ear infection. Turns out it was nothing. Weird. This whole "motherhood" thing has sure thrown me for a loop. Can't wait 'til she has her first break up. It totally won't phase me at all.
