Friday after work we went to my God-Daughter's 2nd birthday. We celebrated with a pajama, pumpkin painting, and pizza party which was a blast and so festive. Boston got to wear his glow in the dark skeleton PJs my best friend bought him for his first Halloween. Boston in anything footed just kills me so I had to steal some kisses and snuggles before we left. He's so darn sweet!
The next morning B decided he would give mama a little treat and he slept until almost 9am! He must have had way too much fun at the birthday party but of course I woke up at 6:30am and wasn't able to fall back asleep. So I made a pot of coffee and then got back in bed and did some online shopping while D and I watched Stonehearst Asylum. Such a good scary movie and would be perfect to watch on Halloween once the kiddos are asleep.
Saturday night we dropped B off with his grandma and we went to the lake with my best friend and her hubby. It has been 90 degrees in Texas this week which kinda kills the Fall feeling but we made the best of it and took a little sunset cruise with some bubbly and sushi.
Boston turned 6 months on Sunday and I have been so excited to start Baby Led Weaning with him so we decided give it a try that morning. The whole idea of BLW is to let the baby eat what you eat and at their own pace so we let B have the scrambled eggs and avocado from the breakfast burritos we had. He did so good and he actually got a few pieces of food in his mouth. I am sure about 90% ended up on the floor and in Bennington's belly but that was way better than I expected. And they both had such a great time so I would call it a success.
(I have a feeling this is just the beginning of a very strong friendship.)
Later in the afternoon we took Boston and Bennington on a walk. Even though it has been so hot this week, the leaves have started to fall which makes me happy. Quality time with the family and crunchy leaves under my feet is my idea of perfect.
After we put the babe to sleep, we curled back up in bed with leftover champagne and Halloween candy and watched some of my favorite trashy tv. I am thankful Dustin doesn't mind sitting through an episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey and that I am old enough to have Twix and champagne for dinner. :)
