Hello! I hope you are doing well!
It is has been a while since I posted, but life has been, well, busy! At the end of September, we drove to Tennessee to meet my sister, brother-in-law, and twin nieces. The girls and Henry are just 7 weeks apart. We had a great time. We all agreed it was nice to get away (even if it took them 10 plus hours to get there and 5 plus hours for us) after a summer of staying in with the babes.
I miss the girls so much!
Henry went down the slide for the first time in TN with Tyler. This picture is a my everything right now. I love my boys.
Almost everyday, Henry and I get outside to play now that the weather is cooler. He loves it!
Henry is doing very well! He has had his first stuffy nose and “sick” visit to the doctor (turns out he was breathing just fine…he was just trying to find his voice). I was a mess. Literally, I was crying as I was driving him to the doctor’s office. Of course, he was all smiley and happy in the back. He is also rolling over (mostly to the right), sleeping through the night, and we think he is starting to get his first tooth. He is almost 5 months old which is crazy!!! He is such a joy!
Also, he goes back and forth between his thumb and his WubbaNub…which will it be buddy??? We are glad he can self soothe with this thumb, but we would prefer if he liked his paci better because it is a lot harder to take his thumb away. Tyler and I were both thumb suckers, sooooo we are thinking Henry will be too.
As for me, I feel like I am doing a good job of taking care of myself. I am loading up on whole, real, foods including tons of veggies, fruit, healthy fats, and protein. I actually started using Dr. Axe’s Bone Broth Protein, and, I have to say, it is pretty tasty. I have only tried the vanilla flavor. I wasn’t sure what I thought of it at first, but it has grown on me.
Also, I have reconnected with a friend of mine from childhood. She is a Beachbody Coach, and she is killing it. I did her last challenge and decided to join her again, and it has been great. I am doing the 21 Day Fix workouts, barre3 at 6am 2 days a week, and walking. I love being a part of a group. Even though I am a Health Coach, I still need a coach.
I am also sleeping great now that Henry is sleeping through the night, and I started using magnesium gel on my feet. Seriously…I am sleeping like a baby. I highly recommend trying it!
Well, friends, that is all I have for now. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend with family and friends.
I will leave you with a picture of our happy boy…
