There is a silver lining to Autumn bringing the shorter days.  At least until the time change, the sun is rising later and we are able to talk Ayden into sleeping in a bit.  I had a little trouble sleeping last night so I was so glad that when Ayden woke at his usual 6:30 and I told him to lay back down he just asked, "It's still dark outside?" and I was honestly able to tell him that it was.  He lay back down and we both slept for another hour.  Win!

When we got up, I asked him what he wanted for breakfast and he said bacon and pancakes.  So, I made my baby bacon and pancakes (usually a weekend treat but if Logan comes before then we probably won't be having them then...). 

We like this grain free recipe.
Picture them covered with bananas and maple syrup.
I guess I took the pic a little early...

My sister called to check in on me and since I was caught up in our conversation, I totally burnt the bacon.  Hey, no sugar coating here.  This is real life and sometimes in real life you burn the bacon.  

I had a chiropractor appointment this morning and then we went to my parents house to have lunch and a swim.

That's Ayden in the background in his puddle jumper.
He even got brave enough to blow bubbles with his face in the water today!

The water felt SOOO good.  A benefit to this little heat wave we are having is how warm it has made the pool.  It was a perfect 80* in there and made me feel weightless.  We stayed way longer than originally planned and when we got home, Ayden ate a whole plate of food and went right to sleep.  He swam up an appetite and was so tuckered out!  My mom wants to treat me to a mani/pedi tomorrow, so we are going to see if we can make that happen.  I think a little pampering sounds just fine.


Flashback!  Here's what we were up to one year ago today: "Hammer Time"

  1. I burn the bacon almost every single time!
    Enjoy your pampering, you deserve it.
