Sometimes doing nothing is the best thing

We had a very low key weekend which is exactly what I wanted. Just time spent with my husband and child being lazy and that's pretty much what I got.

On Friday night we put Hunter to bed and actually stayed up to watch a movie together which I don't think we've done since he's been born. Normally I try to go to bed as soon after him as I can, trying to stay up to watch a two hour movie is near impossible nowadays but we did it and got some much needed cuddle time.

Saturday morning we woke up early thanks to our 22lb alarm clock, made a quick Starbucks run then stopped at the Tot Lot by the house on our way home. We put Hunter in the baby swing for the first time and he loved it. Especially the higher and faster we pushed him. Kristian now knows where to take him on his fussy afternoons.

Some people on IG pointed out that it looks like I'm in the swing with him.

He loves it. See

That afternoon I dropped Hunter off at my inlaws house so they could watch him while I got a much needed haircut. Kristian has a bit of a head cold so he wanted to nap and his mother wanted some grandma time. Win win. I also got my hair to look pretty again.

Before and After

On Sunday, after seeing the rain outside, I decided it was a stay in your pajamas kinda day. Hunter took a blissful 2 hour nap and I had time to paint my nails AND take my own hour long nap. While we slept Kristian and his buddy installed a ceiling fan in the basement. That damn ceiling fan has been sitting on the floor of the basement since we moved in so I'm very happy it's finally off the floor and where it belongs.

Another before and after. Please pardon the mess on the floor.

Once the Huntsman was up from his nap we spent the rest of the day playing and have some quality mommy/baby time while Kristian made a huge pot of chili. Something about rain makes me want to eat pounds of chili. I was worn OUT at the end of the day. I wish I had his energy.

Watching the world go by....until he spots the floor vent that is.

Kid is obsessed with the floor vents and having the cool air blow on him.

Overall a nice and relaxing weekend.

I'm glad he loves the swings. Chloe loves them too and they're a great distraction on a cranky day. And yeah it definitely looks like you're in the swing with him. I had to look twice.
The haircut looks nice. It's always a nice refreshing feeling.
Glad you had a great weekend :)

I had the same low key weekend with the exception that my nesting skills kicked in and I got so much accomplished around the house!

Hunter is getting so big! I could just eat him up!

Sounds like you had a great weekend! Your haircut looks great too! When I first saw the pic of you & hunter in the swing, I thought the same thing 'how in the world did she fit in the swing with him?!' haha!

So cute! Ours never liked the swing, always the slide. Be careful with the floor vents. My nephew could pick them up and move them at 2 years old. Craziness.

We're night owls. Kid goes to sleep between 8-9 and then we eat dinner. We're usually up to midnight (though lately, it's much later). That said, we get up between 7:30-8 in the morning. This Fall, we have to get up at least an hour earlier for school so all of our schedules may shift accordingly. Ugh.

It totally looks like you're in the swing. :)
