Coffee Date

Hello, friends.

I’m linking up with Kristen today (What’s New With You?) for a casual, relaxing coffee date.

If we were sipping our coffee (while sitting 6 feet apart still, of course)… I would admit that I love having two dogs that could not care less about storms. Lylee was a p s y c h o when it came to thunder and lightning. I used to love storms until she made me hate them. Now I love them again.

As we nibbled on scones it would remind me to tell you… M is starting baby-led weaning! She’s 6 months old today (hoooooow!?) and that means we can safely start on soft solids since she’s a) 6 months, b)interested in food and c) sitting up on her own. I am SO excited. We’ve already given her a few things and she loves it.

Like everyone else under lock down… I would share that I gave my closet a little revamp. I bought a few drawers for my socks (to free up the one in the dresser) and I purchased a shoe cubby. I LOVE how it looks in there now. We’re going to tackle K’s side next. And all the clothes we never wear.

As we were draining our mugs I would ask how you’re handling life lately… It seems like we’re existing in this Limbo between “normal” and quarantine life. Mix in the violence and protests… and I will openly admit that I’m not sleeping well. I feel stressed and out of control, then guilty because I KNOW I have more control and comfort in my life than many, especially many people of color right now.

I think it’s just a stressful time in our world. I hope you’re doing alright ♥

  1. M is not 6 months old! HOW?!?! I can’t believe that. Starting them on food and seeing all their reactions though is so fun!
    I definitely feel in limbo too. Like, I’m back at work, so that feels normal… but so much is still not normal.

    • I know. I don’t understand where my baby went. One day they’re so helpless and little and fragile… and then they’re sitting up, grabbing for your toast. LOL
      Yep, agreed.

  2. It is so much fun watching them try different foods for the first time! The facial expressions are priceless and I love seeing what they like immediately and what takes some time, if ever. It is definitely a weird time right now, feeling very unsettled about so much.

    • I agree! They wrinkle their nose…. and then put it in their mouth again! Hahaha! M is loving avocados, sweet potatoes, and broccoli. Peaches are a no for now. Lol. She’s not really into sweets.

  3. Six months! Wow. It seems like hardly any time since she arrived.

    I’ve barely slept the past few nights, between the entire world out there imploding and some personal stuff that’s going on it’s so hard to relax. I plan to read all the books this weekend – I need the distraction.

  4. It’s so crazy that M is six months! That’s great she’s responding to the food though. It’s definitely a crazy time in the world. I don’t think anyone should feel guilty for being stressed or anxious. We all have our own things going on, and we all (or most) are afraid for the state of the world we’re currently living in. It’s definitely been good for me to avoid social media sometimes. I want to keep as updated on things as I can, but sometimes it’s just too much.

    • I know! I just can’t believe it. She has such a personality coming through.
      I think I need to do a better job of filtering social media and the news. I was watching the news every morning and it was just getting to be too much!
