The highs of my week were visits with my grandpa, the landscapers finally starting our retaining wall project, watching Isla mimic the dancers auditioning for So You Think You Can Dance, visiting the Farmer’s Market, toddler-led art with Isla and our favourite friends.
The low of my week was being pregnant. I’m just so done, but my doctor is away for the majority of next week so I’m just going to have to hang in there if I don’t want the on-call OB delivering Baby N. Blarg. Oh, and finding out that I’m GBS positive, but there’s not much I can do about that.
An internet find I loved was this recipe for Strawberry Mint Lemonade that Hillary had posted, and this wonderful idea for gifting homemade cookie dough that Colleen posted. (Funny how the pregnant lady loves ALL THE FOOD POSTS! Haha.)
The best money I spent was the $12.50 I spent at the Farmer’s Market on Wednesday. I got two bags of garlic scapes, a head of leaf lettuce, and a pastry treat for Isla. I can’t wait until later in the summer when the market is REALLY in full swing!
My favourite Isla moment was probably not her favourite moment, but the other day she briefly fell asleep in the car around 5 pm (WAY too late to be napping) so I woke her up when we got home. She had a hissy fit at me because she was so tired and proceeded to just lay down on this gross chunk of carpet we have in the garage and fall back to sleep. I woke her up and she stayed awake after that, but it was pretty hilarious. (See photo to the right for the hilarity –>)
The song that has been stuck in my head is still Maroon 5’s “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt Like a Motherf***er.” It was finally released on iTunes in Canada, so I was able to download it! (Mind you, I got the “clean” version since Isla is a fan of singing along to the music in the car.)
My favourite meal of the week was the lasagne I had at my mom’s on Tuesday. I’ve had a hankering for lasagne for a while but haven’t been able to make it because Kyle has recently discovered that he’s slightly allergic/sensitive to cheese. My grandpa was staying at my mom’s so Isla and I went down for dinner and a visit, and it was SO GOOD.
My plans for the weekend are an early birthday party for Isla on Saturday. Since I’m either going to be uncomfortably pregnant or have a newborn on her actual birthday, Kyle and I decided to throw Isla a small, family-only party a couple weeks early. I’m fairly certain she won’t know the difference, and we’ll treat her to something special (a cupcake or something like that) on her actual birthday. I’m just in no shape to have a bunch of people over right now, and if I wait until after the baby comes I don’t want the all attention to be on her instead of Isla.
