So here are some life updates with a few pictures. I've already posted these on Instagram so for those that follow me on there these will look familiar. For those that aren't following me already you can find me on IG, username SEP0522.
About two weeks ago my company had a belated holiday dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House which is like a super swanky and pricey restaurant that I had never been to before. It was easily some of the best food I've ever eaten. It was probably one our fanciest dates since our wedding and nice to get out for a few hours while my mom watched Hunter.
Unfortunately our team didn't advance in the Playoffs but we still had fun rooting them on and looked quite cute doing it. HTTR (Hail to the Redskins). FYI- I'm now throwing my support behind the Ravens who (as a born and raised Maryland girl) are my second favorite team.
Hunter is full on walking now. There is really no stopping him and he can walk from room to room and is quite proud of himself. It's so cute and surreal seeing him toddle around the house.
Kristian bought a bunch of new fishing reels off of Craig's List and the brainwashing is in full effect. Fortunately Hunter seems completely fascinated by the fishing reel/rods which of course makes his daddy super excited.
We finally bite the bullet and upgraded Hunter to a convertible carseat (these things are EXPENSIVE). He still hasn't officially outgrown his infant seat which goes up to 35 pounds but I was tired of lugging that thing inside daycare every morning (since Kristian picks up I have to leave it there). Plus he was starting to look squished in it. So we got him a new big boy seat which will now stay in my car and Kristian will continue to use the infant seat for another month or so until we can afford one for his car (we do not want to have to take this out everyday to switch cars). He looks so old in it!
Hunter has started to enjoy a little light bathtime reading with his new waterproof book. I have a feeling we'll be seeing a similar scene once he starts using the potty.
I'm not a fan of pizza crust (or really any kind of crust for that matter i.e. bread, pie etc) but fortunately Hunter quite enjoys eating mommy's pizza crust. We make a good team.
I've also spent the past few days trying to clean and re-organize the house but I'll leave that for a separate post along with a few Pinterest recipes I've tried recently.
