After such a wonderful weekend with my little and hubs, I was saddened to hear of the events this morning in Manhattan. While myself and all I know who commute in are well I couldn’t not mention this sad way to start our work week. Thankfully New Yorkers are tough and I am sure we will take this event in stride.
Now as for this fun weekend….
First, someone slept through the night Friday! While this isn’t the first time this has happened, it had been a very rough week on all aspects of our lives- work, baby, extracurricular activities…. we have been EXHAUSTED. So this one night of uninterrupted sleep was like getting an early Christmas present.
Saturaday was filled with all sorts of fun. Baby girl experienced her first snowfall (this mom experienced a stroller in snowfall- interesting but survivable…) and we got her first real high chair delivered on Saturday! Someone enjoyed a couple of fun hours playing with all the packaging while I somehow managed to get the dang thing put together…
Sunday was just as exciting…. someone met Santa for the first time! While the first few photos went well…well….. the last few… ha there’s a first for everyone… it was a fun day with the hubs out and about, craft fairs, coffee and donuts….
This is certainly the condensed version of my weekend but it felt like pure happiness which in all honesty has been a bit lacking in recent weeks. While baby girl brings so much joy into my life, other areas haven’t felt so generous. And this, this weekend was perfect. There may have even been a littel time for knitting; but of course I had to have a helper… one day she will learn that all that pulling and shaking wasn’t the best of ideas while someone is knitting on the other end but hey… for now I will enjoy every little smile it brings to her face.
Happy Holidays world.
