Tomorrow...my baby turns 1. This has been so much weightier for me than I thought it would be. She will always be MY baby but by the world's definition, tomorrow she becomes a toddler.
That's a big word, folks.
I love watching her grow and learn through every stage but sometimes I miss my snuggly, cuddly little baby. Wahhh.
Anyhow...before I start crying...on to this weekend.
Jake took Friday off, Adelyn got dropped off with my parents, and then we were on the road to Nashville to see Nicole (Jake's sister) play a show.
My husband's selfie face.
The show was amazing! For real y'all...download Stronger Hearts by Nicole Nelson on iTunes...you won't be disappointed. And visit nicolenelsonofficial.com and like her Facebook page...that's my sales pitch...I'm done now :)
We crashed at the hotel around 1am...which was way too late for my old self.
Saturday morning we took our time getting up and getting ready and then went out to lunch with Jake's family. Pharmacy burger did not disappoint...so good! I was craving a burger and fries and they hit the spot!
We then made an obligatory Starbucks trip before getting back on the road to get home to our baby!
Spent the night hanging out with my family, then Jake's family once they got home. Adelyn decided to take a few steps...multiple times...no biggie, right? Just walking, mom.
Also...my parents taught her to crawl up the stairs. And she decided to only crawl on all fours now. No more army crawling. She grew up over night...no joke.
Pardon the cell phone pics...stole them from Jake's mom's Facebook account :) it was a fun 24 hours in Nashville!
Sunday we took it easy. We got to bed way too late on Saturday night. Baby didn't nap much all weekend so she slept in. I really wish we could have gone to church but it just didn't happen after such a long, busy weekend :(
Instead, we went to Sam's...my first time doing actual shopping for myself there. Holy. Cow.
I felt like I was in a store for giants...like who needs 40 poptarts at one time? Goodness....
Then we did some yard work at home.
Clarification...Daddy did yard work...Adelyn didn't want to nap so we played with sticks in the driveway.
She just seems so big to me! And she's so observant...or nosey...whichever you prefer. So much changes in a year.
We watched Frozen Sunday afternoon since we're pretty much the last people alive to see it. Adelyn was just super hungry all afternoon so she didn't want to watch it for more than 20 minutes at a time without taking a break for food. A girl after my own heart.
We got her to bed fairly early and then just took our time relaxing Sunday night. Jake is awesome and vacuumed and swiffered the first floor.
Because we finally have a working vacuum again!
Best 30 dollar ever spent...4 year warranty through Best Buy...replaced our broken vacuum without even turning it on to make sure it was actually broken. Gave us a brand new one. And we most definitely purchased the warranty again.
We ate some ice cream. Watched some tv. It was relaxing.
Then I got this selfie this morning while I was out getting blood work done...
These two....so adorable :)
Now the baby (yes I'm going to use that word about a million times today while I still can) is awake! So excited to spend her birthday week with her and to celebrate on Saturday!
