Friday Randoms {this week}

This week has been nearly perfect for us! I think the Spring weather has just put a pep in my step, and it couldn't have come at a better time! I was starting to feel a little sorry for myself when we were in teething hell a couple weeks ago ;) Ha! Kidding. Kind of.
I know most people feel very strongly about DST, but I LOVE it! Rob doesn't get home until 6:30ish, so it's nice that it's not dark when he gets in. Jaqs has even adjusted her schedule a bit, so she's getting some extra daddy time in the evenings. We're all enjoying this welcomed change.

On Monday night, Rob got off a little early, so he came home with flowers for me, and we got to have dinner as a family! It was such a treat :) I made gluten free spaghetti with turkey meatballs. This was a first for the baby girl, and she gobbled it up.
Secret: I grated up carrots and zucchini in my sauce for extra nutrition & flavor!
 On Tuesday night we went to Chick-fil-A with some friends for Kids Eat Free night. Another first for J! Let me tell you what, she is a BIG fan of their nuggets! She polished them off and loved every last bite.
you've been holding out on me, mom.
 On Wednesday night, Cassi, Vanessa, and I met up with one of our Abilene buddies that was passing through, Mandi! It was so much fun to spend some time together. You gotta love those friendships that feel like no time at all has passed in between visits!
 Momma stayed out later than her normal bedtime, but Jaqs must have known because she slept until NINE the next morning! What a girl! She greeted me with the best bed head you ever did see :)
And in other news, we are in the process of weaning from bottles over here. We've successfully dropped one this week! Go baby, go! We'll work on another one this upcoming week. Fortunately, she seems to be diggin' the cow's milk, and I can't blame her. I snuck some of her vitamin D milk, and OH MY. It's good stuff.
practicing in the mirror, of course.
We decided to take advantage of the extra day light (and warmth!) last night and head to the park after dinner, and I'm so glad we did! Jaqs was absolutely thrilled. There were several dogs there that she "barked" at, plus some people were playing basketball, so of course, she was excited about the "baw!" Add in swinging? The girl was in HEAVEN. She had a blast and just giggled the whole time we were there.
momma loves to swing too!

Well, this ended up being more of a life update than a 'random' post, but that's okay, right? 
Hope y'all have a great weekend!

It was all fun and games until you said you drank and like (!) the whole milk. YUCK! I gag just thinking about attempting to swallow it and its thickness! :-p Oh and grating veggies up in your sauce makes you super mom in my book!

I need more info on how you transition to milk and drop the bottles! I tried some BM in a sippy for Hayden with his lunch and he was not having it. He'll chug water but not milk in the cup!

I'm sooo so jealous of your warm weather and swinging! I can't wait to get Hayden outside and swing and play! We had a glimpse of it yesterday (mid 40's) :)

Glad you guys are getting some more family time in!

Love baby bed head, so cute! Jaqs looks like she's having the time of her life in the swing! I'm so jealous of your weather...we are suppose to get lots more snow so no swinging in our near future:(

I am a huge fan of DST too! I'm putting Macy down at the same time but she sleeps an hour later- score!
Super jealous of your awesome weather! We hope to be Texas inhabitants one day and be able to enjoy it too :)
