It has been a while since I have had a moment to blog… this motherhood thing is so time consuming! 😉 But worth it! I really do love being Ada’s mom, but I do miss having a moment to myself. I don’t mind taking care of Ada, I love that part… it is the breastfeeding that is exhausting and so time consuming. I breastfeed Ada every hour or two and at night I have to pump because she is sleeping so long at night. Which I can’t really complain about that… but I have to work so hard to keep my milk supply up. I guess I just didn’t realize how much work it took to breastfeed. It consumes all of my time!

We were able to get out of the house this past weekend. We celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary by going out for sushi as a family of 3. And me, being the cheese ball that I am, coordinated our outfits for this special occasion. Unfortunately, I have no lovely family photo because before I could take a picture, Ada had a blow out and messed up her entire outfit. All of this occurred, of course, at the restaurant, right before our food came out. So I went to the ladies’ room to find a changing station and the restaurant did not have one (when did public places stop having these handy contraptions for moms anyways?). I had to change Ada’s diaper and clothes in our cold car. All the while Ada is screaming to eat. So needless to say, we had an eventful anniversary dinner, in a very different way than what we are use to.

But we still had a lovely evening. After cleaning up Ada, we were able to enjoy our dinner. And it takes real talent to feed your child and use chopsticks to fed yourself without dropping any food on her. Win!

After dinner we walked over to my favorite ice cream place, Kilwins and got their amazing apple pie ice-cream. Sorry Ada, it won’t be much longer till you can join me!


We spent the rest of our weekend at home, enjoying the beautiful fall weather. And Ada had her very first hammock experience. Our little happy camper in the making!


I hope to be back soon! Hopefully things will slow down and I will have more time! Happy Friday!
