Friday Five as a Family of Four

Oh man what a week! Since today is Friday, it marks the end of 7 weeks with my amazing husband at home with us. Next week is his final week of paternity leave and that’s when the real fun begins. My life is about to get a lot crazier and busier, but that’s what this mom life is all about!

I’m quite behind on getting my posts up and scheduled, so today I’m just Friday Fiving it…and a little late I might add. Just five fun moments from this past week. No products, no amazing photography, nothing special. Just us.

one. Aggie football weekends

It’s football season, so of course we’re in College Station whenever the Aggies are playing at home! Since my in laws live there, we get to spend the weekend with them and go to the game. My mother-in-love is pretty much the greatest and watches the kids so that I can go to the game, thus making game night, date night! I love all of the time that I’ve been able to spend with this man while he’s been on leave!

two. Benny came home!

My brother Ben lives up in Dallas and we don’t get to see him as often as we’d like, so it was quite the surprise when he showed up in Sugar Land this weekend! He had an interview in Houston on Thursday, so he ended up working from my parents home on Friday and spending the weekend here. We were in College Station, so we made sure to head to my parents’ on Sunday morning to spend a few hours with Ben. He got to meet Brody for the first time and it was wonderful spending time with him and catching up. When we see him next at Thanksgiving, Brody will be so much bigger and he’ll have another nephew to meet!

three. Sweet baby faces

Since Chloe won’t let me take pictures of her, I feel like I’m only taking pictures of Brody! I promise I love both of my kiddos equally, but this guy is workin’ it for the camera. I’m also obsessed with sweet baby faces. This ‘ooooohhhhh’ face is one of my personal favorites that I try to capture every chance I get. They only do it for the first couple of months!

four. I’m running again!

I’ve been working back into running over the last couple of weeks and on Tuesday, I managed to run 3 miles without stopping or peeing on myself. Any woman that has had a baby (especially if it was a vaginal delivery), understands that this is an awesome feat! I’m working on putting together a postpartum running plan for women looking to get back into running post baby! And let’s be real, it can be anytime post baby, not necessarily right away.

five. Sibling snuggles

I mentioned on Monday in my update post that Chloe has really warmed up to Brody and is always wanting to hold and snuggle him. Well, little miss “I don’t want my picture” asked me to take this picture yesterday!!! I couldn’t get her to look at the camera, but I did capture this sweet moment that I can’t stop looking at. Watching them grow up together is going to be the absolute best!

I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend! We have quite the busy schedule with lots of people to see and places to be.

What is one of your favorite moments from this week? I love that not every week has to have a monumental moment that becomes your favorite. Sometimes it’s just the way your baby looks at you or the way your children interact. It’s the little things y’all!
