It's been a slow day today. I'm happy to say Isabelle and I went to the YMCA again today and walked around the track a bit.
I know walking is pretty mild, exercise-wise, but I figure the fact that I'm carrying my 17 lb chunk along in the Ergo at least ups the benefit a teeny bit. Like I said, I don't want to leave her in the nursery just yet, so we'll just keep up our walking until the weather gets decent enough here to be outside and then I'll give my jogging stroller a try. I know it's great cause I used it plenty with my first kiddo, but never for its intended purpose of jogging lol!

When we are home, Isabelle's favorite place to be is just laying around in my bed, so we spend a lot of time there.

She'll lay around and play with her blankees or little toys and I'll alternate talking to her and playing with her while reading on my kindle. For the first time in my life, I find myself wishing I had a king sized bed. Not for sleeping, but just to increase our play area square footage. It's fine when it's the two of us, but when Kaylee is home, she wants to get in on the playing and cuddling on the bed. It's kind of amazing the amount of time we spend in bed these days.

I'm still reading The Book Thief, and while it's okay, it hasn't sucked me in just yet. I keep waiting for it to happen though, cause I've heard from so many people how fantastic it is.

It's time to prep dinner. I'm making cornish game hens, cause I thought Kaylee might get a kick out of having her own little chicken for dinner.
Only problem is, for some reason, dealing with the whole chicken like that kinda grosses me out. I am a meat eater, for sure, and have cooked all kinds of meat, but having the whole body of the chicken....bleh.


  1. Walking with a 17lb baby is certainly a workout!
    Never had cornish game hens before - hope you made it through all the prep work to have delicious dinner! :)

  2. Wow, big baby! Precious picture : )

  3. I think walking is a great workout! You can always add in some squats or lunges to spice it up. I used to do that with my baby in the Bjorn and she never minded!

  4. Um, yeah carrying her while you walk is definitely a good workout! I never think to make cornish game hens and I bet my boys would like getting the whole chicken too. I need to do that. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your words were so kind and I really appreciate it. I look forward to reading more of yours too! Have a great day!

  5. let me know how that cornish hen goes! I've never had one before, but if it turns out well maybe I'll give it a try!


Thank YOU for reading my blog and leaving me a comment!
