One of my close friends Morgan came into town for the weekend. Her husband is going to go to grad school at UW so they stayed with us so we could show them around. I hadn't seen her in so long but, I love friends that you see where you can just pick up where you left off and everything still feels the same. We've known each other for almost 10 years now! (these photos are not edited and prob look bad but I'm to lazy ha.)

One of Devin's co-workers got married last weekend. He is such a great guy and has been a great friend to Devin. It was our first Jewish wedding and so much fun. It was on a docked vintage boat overlooking downtown Seattle. Our friends from out of town were at the wedding as well which made it even more fun.
Chloe stayed home with my sister Kate. It was the first time I let someone else put her to bed besides Devin while I was away. I was so nervous about it but Chloe did perfectly. Kate is so good with her and the only one I trust to do the job.
One of the things that has surprised me about becoming a mom is how difficult it has been for me to trust others with Chloe or to not worry about her while I am away from her. I know that over time I will get better at it though.

What we have been up to lately....
The sun came out for a few days last week. We met up with Makhi and Jamie for a walk to the park and to feed the ducks.
I got a gym membership 2 months ago and I can't describe the difference it has made in all aspects of my life (I usually just workout at home). I feel stronger, more energy, I think clearer, and my face has cleared up (knock on wood). Chloe wakes up pretty early. I feed her and then I head straight to the gym while Dev stays with her before work. I'm already a pretty healthy eater but in my quest to have an even healthier home, I've tried to make sure we eat less processed foods. Trader Joe's is our place! Chloe loves the samples and I love the inspiration I get from all the fresh produce.

I don't know what she will be like as she gets older (I'm nervous for that), but she sure is the sweetest friendliest girl. I love that she never hesitates to go right up to people with a smile. She is just the right amount of crazy and just the right amount of sweet. Devin and I always talk about how lucky we feel to be her parents.

Some recent happenings...
Friday, February 21, 2014
Chloe and I both thrive on routine and schedule. When nap time comes, I jump right into my daily nap time routine. I soo look forward to this time (don't get me wrong I love being with my girl the most) and I've realized that when my kid sleeps I need to do whatever it is that will set me up for happiness and success for the rest of the day. That's just me, but it makes all the difference in our home.
My nap time routine has definitely evolved. In the beginning it was just catching up on sleep and a shower. Then it was exercise and a shower and now it's a whole lot more.Things change as she grows in all aspects of our lives.
Getting ready for the day is key for me in not feeling gross all day. ps. I never take selfies..awkward.
How do people do dishes when they have kids?? Impossible I tell you!
