I don’t have the time or energy to organize my thoughts so here we are.
Marcus took this really good snap of me when we were at the cabin over Memorial Day weekend.
Last weekend I went to prenatal yoga for the first time in MONTHS. It nearly broke me, friends. I felt like every time we did an inversion all of the blood in my body was in my head, and while all of the stretching and breathing felt good it did something terrible to my already hinky left glute (THANKS GLITTER). I could barely walk by the end of class. ANYWAY, I am going to give it another shot next week and then I think we’ll have a better idea of whether prenatal yoga is right for me.
Unrelated: we have finally reached the TUMS Time part of pregnancy. #blessed
Greatest revelation of the weekend: ALDI now sells cold brew. I have been keeping an eye out for this in the store for probably…six months? At last, we are victorious! It is $7.49 for a 32 oz jug and there is no price difference between french roast and regular (ahem Trader Joe’s). I bought one of each so that I can try them and then decide which I prefer.
As much as I really do love Trader Joe’s, if I could eliminate my trips for essentials there (cold brew, creamy salted peanut butter, 12 grain bread) so that we were only headed over for the odd case of two buck chuck and house liquor, I would not be mad. It’s a 15 minute drive one way, so I just have other ways that I would rather spend my time.
Thanks to a hot tip from my mama group, I also scooped up a Step 2 brand water table (again, at ALDI) for $30. Critter is delighted with it and we haven’t even put the water in.
Meanwhile we are continuing Critter’s transition to one nap (sob) and he continues to delight us as his proficiency in a variety of animal sounds (snake, owl, lion, butterfly, elephant) expands. He now barks when he sees dogs on walks and it is so cute that it hurts. He says “blub” when he eats Goldfish. We are so excited to meet Glitter but also it is bittersweet that these 13 weeks are the last that it will ever just be Mama and Critter. My tiny sidekick is getting an even tinier sidekick!
