Saturday we rallied after a hard night and went to a late breakfast at Slow Pokes. I was supposed to be at a bridal shower for a family friend…but that unfortunately didn’t happen. Baby girl was needing a lot of love and attention.
Tacos for both of us + lattes + a their delicious cinnamon roll to share. Me and Jo may be taking a mom + daughter date this week so I can eat that cinnamon roll again. Really enjoying it lately and have been eating is pretty much every week since discovering it!
I was still feeling like I needed a break, so Andrew took over baby duty and I headed to a yoga class.
I ended up having some bleeding after this class so I’m gonna take a break from yoga this week and give everything more time to heal. My med school friend was telling me that a lot of the bleeding you have after birth is because where the placenta rips off leaves a wound that needs to heal. I don’t know why I didn’t realize that. Makes sense. Then another friend mentioned it’s easy to overdo it because you can’t see the wound healing. I would’ve thought at 9 weeks everything would be healed up, mainly bc my vagina feels so normal again, but I guess I need a while longer to heal. So I’m gonna give myself a break from all the twisting in yoga. I’m doing my best to respect my body’s needs and not jump back into anything too quick…but it’s hard because it sure feels nice to move again. Working on being patient. Also I know I don’t need to be all or nothing. There are still plenty of things I can do for gentle movement that feel fabulous.
For Saturday lunch I made a snack-y type of lunch with the below.
Then snacked soon after on the below. Loving mixed cookie butter with peanut butter lately!
In the afternoon Andrew and I interviewed a nanny for Jo and we liked her a lot!
My mom knew I’d had a hard night, so my parents offered to come over and watch Jojo while Andrew and I went on a date night. Our first date night since becoming parents! It was so fabulous.
And my parents brought friends for Maggie to play with!
For dinner we got…
…and sopapillas that I was impressed by. YUM!
Sunday morning came and we didn’t make it to church. Joanna is just finishing her second developmental leap and has been fussy and clingy for the last week. This weekend we seemed to hit a peak fussiness. It’s been hard.
Andrew went and got us milk from the store + picked up donuts for breakfast.
Loving my OhJoy! mug that was a Christmas gift from Morgan. Morgan is moving to Italy soon and I’m trying my best to talk her into regularly sharing her adventures there with us!
The rest of Sunday was spent grabbing lunch with an old friend. Chilaquiles were on the menu so of course I ordered them.
I fed Jo at the table (she then proceeded to have a massive spit-up lol) and then again once we got to the car. I think the below pictures turned out really great haha…that parking lot lighting tho.
Other weekend eats included: a cabbage, avocado, & walnut salad with an Asian dressing.
and (this oh-so appetizing looking) chicken tenders + roasted cauliflower.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
