iPhoto Update | March and April

It's been more than a few weeks since I've sat down to write, but I'm still here. I've been busy enjoying life, but not taking the time to blog about it.

I'm happy to say that I've adjusted well to being a working mom. It's been a little over three months since I've returned to work and I think I'm figuring this whole thing out. Of course, it helps that my mom watches Max while we work, so I have nothing to worry about during the work day. I get to have my mind on the office for eight hours a day while my mom makes sure our baby is getting lots of love. Oh, and using FaceTime to talk to our little dude during the day helps, too.

I've been cooking a lot... a few new things, a few old things.  Oh, and I've made tons of baby food. Max is eating a lot of solids and I've learned how to make baby versions of some of my favorite foods. Max started off not caring about solids, but now he grunts and screams as soon as we put our food on the table.

Our lives have changed tremendously since we brought this little 5-pound baby home back in July. We were always morning people, but now we don't even need to set an alarm because we know that our little early bird will wake us up with his "da da da" chatter. We still love to grocery shop as a family, but now we have to find ways to keep our little boo interested while we cruise the aisles...

Then there are all of the new traditions. Everything this year is Max's first... first Christmas, First New Year's, first Easter... so many photo opportunities.

I'm already looking forward to planning his first birthday party.  If you follow me on Pinterest, I have a board just for planning the event.

Oh, and it was 85 degrees today! On April 10th! You don't know how happy this makes me. We didn't have a rough winter, but there's nothing like an unseasonably warm day and blooming flowers to put everyone in a good mood.

So I have a lot of food-related stories to share. I also have tons of other fun stuff going on, but I'll be trying to share some recipes while I'm out getting spring fever. Just wanted to let you know I'm still here... what's new with you? Anybody else enjoying unseasonably warm temperatures?


  1. I love the Baby Max updates :) you guys are seriously the cutest! I love seeing how much you're enjoying parenthood. and I can't believe you're already planning his first birthday party - time does fly!

  2. Hi Keely, I am visiting via the comment you left on Maddy's blog today. It looks to me like you are doing a wonderful job capturing your little baby. What a sweetie he is. Absolutely precious. I love his baby cheeks and his bright brown eyes. I am glad you are having fun making baby food and grocery shopping. I hope you have a wonderful night with your little man. PS I think Grandmas are the BEST babysitters in the world for sure!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I am so happy that my mom is taking care of Max while we work.
