(WHW): Miles of Smiles


Happy Wednesday friends! Sorry for being more absent than usual--its just been hard to get posts written during the day and in the evenings I'm holding a sleeping baby (and typing my post one handed like I am now lol)

What's hap-"pinning" over here lately is that miss Ella has begun smiling. We had gotten some here and there around week 6 but they are much more prevalent now and so much fun to get! Its pretty much my mission all day to get at least 20 smiles now haha.

Baby smiles are the best but when it's your baby and you're the one who knows the ways to make her smile, it's like nothing I can describe. 

In other events, I've been getting out and about throughout the week to run errands or to meet up with my fellow new mom friends. Last Friday I met up with my friend Bree at the mall with our babies and did several laps around with the strollers to get some exercise since it was so hot out.
I've also learned to multi-task. Like wearing Ella in her carrier to get her to calm down/sleep...combined with eating my own lunch! lol

MG and I made it out for another Friday pizza dinner with Ella in tow and even ate outside because the temps broke. Another quiet, happy baby dinner in the books!
We also got to spend the day with my friend Crystal last week because she can work from home.It was a help having an extra pair of hands, someone to talk to, and get to catch up. Ella really liked their time together too :)
We even managed hosting our couple friends for some grilling this weekend. I love summer grilling and getting to spend time on the deck! 
Dave also seemed to enjoy him some Ella haha
Lastly, I took advantage of Loft's 40% off and free shipping this weekend and placed an order. I know you're shocked by this lol. Packages arriving Thursday and Friday!!

Now it's your turn to link up and share What's hap-"pinning" with you!!
