First Day of School+Weekending

Well, for the kids anyway!

I'm coming off of a great weekend at home with my little (and MG too)--with a slightly later than normal post,  but I'm here nonetheless!

Friday night MG had his fantasy football draft so Ella and I spent some snuggle time together before her bedtime, and then I stayed up and watched Sex and the City 2 before hitting the sack myself.

Saturday MG and I went to Old Town for a stroll with Ella--hit up a farmers market and then grabbed lunch. The weather this weekend was perfection!

Saturday afternoon we got miss Ella all ready to head to our friends' cook out where she got to meet several more of MG's friends who she hadn't met yet. She looked quite cute (and chunky) in her little dress and headband!
Saturday night we also decided to let Ella sleep in her crib in her room the whole night and she did great! We had one wake up around 4am and then she slept until after 7! Luckily her cold seems to be getting better and only a cough here and there is lingering.
Sunday we had pancakes for breakfast, ran some errands and then went for a walk with Ella in the Ergo carrier (got my added weight in for a more challenging walk). We spent some time out on the deck because the weather was still so gorgeous, picked up Thai food for dinner, and eased into the work easing involved falling asleep on the couch around 9pm lol

As we speak, Ella is starting her first full week at daycare (last week was a mix of daycare at my friends' house and 3 days of daddy daycare). I know she's well loved, and well cared for (and am already getting pics of her today)...but dang it's still hard to not be with her all day long.

Hoping your weekend had some nice weather--and for those of you in Texas, particularly Houston--I'm sending my thoughts and prayers out to all of you, hoping you're safe and sound!
