Weekend Recap

Happy Monday Everyone!
Boy I'm surely chipper this morning since I'm now on summer vacation. Two months without work. Yes please!!! Technically I have a meeting at my new job tomorrow, but it's still summer vacation! 
This weekend was fantastic. Saturday morning we were up and out early for a little summer photoshoot for JB. A mama at my previous job is a photographer and I wanted to do a cute little photoshoot to kick off summer. Boy it was HOT and mosquitos were absolutely EVERYWHERE. I got about 3 bites and Shaun got a whole bunch. Somehow though, Elizabeth managed to not get one single bite! Thank goodness! The photographer, Amy over at Simply Photography by Amy was so patient and from the teaser shots she sent me, I am already LOVING the pictures! I'm so excited to get the disc with all the images hopefully by the end of the week! Here's the teaser pics that the photographer posted on her Facebook page!

Saturday afternoon we went over to a good friends' house for a pool party/playdate/dinner. Too bad JB hated the water. Haha. Apparently pool water must be like bath water in order for her to tolerate it. I was hoping to snap a few pictures of her in the water, but that wasn't even remotely going to happen once she busted out the Kim Kardashian ugly cry while she was in the water. So, we took the playdate inside and JB and Bennett had fun. Not interacting with each other at all. Haha. Except for when they wanted each other's toys. Sharing toys? Not in the eyes of our two little peanuts! :) 
Sunday was just a relaxing day at home. Mama ran some errands while dada and JB played the day away. Oh yeah, and she took a THREE hour nap Say what!?!?! Actually, she took a three hour nap on Saturday too. 
Now I know she's my no-nap ninja and I kinda like that nickname, but I'll gladly give it up if she learns to nap! In fact, she's napping right now! She woke up around 7:20 this morning and right around 8:40 she started rubbing her eyes. I let her play a little bit longer and then fed her a mini bottle of 3 ounces and she was quickly in dreamland! 
Now I know daycare was noisy but seriously... they couldn't get her to nap!?!?! I'm looking back on that and I'm like what the heck!?!?! Maybe they didn't have mama's magic touch. My goal for this week is to do a little summer-sleep training. I'd like about an hour and a half morning nap and then an afternoon nap. I'm all for a solid three hour nap, but not if the nap is first thing in the morning. So, this mama is keeping her fingers crossed that she has two good naps today and that she realizes how wonderful naps are! :)
So, I'm off to do some chores around the house! And maybe some perusing on Pinterest if she takes an afternoon nap!
