the weekend.

Feb 25, 2013

Oh, y'all. The week I've been dreading is here. Thursday, V will be a ONE YEAR OLD. To get all mopey and sad about it, this past weekend was the last with our under 1 "baby". I'm in denial. And not like I'm biased or anything but she really is the coolest kid ever. She may not sleep for shit but she's hilarious and so much fun - what more could you ask for? (Oh yeah. Sleep.)

So the weekend. Saturday, we ran errands for the party and bought a billion things and somehow I still need to pick up a few billion more. I'm excited for her party but dude, I'm ready for it to be over too so I can move on in my life.

Also have to share that we had lunch at RUDY'S. Y'all. We are lucky to have such good BBQ in our area. Oooh and the cream corn. This is why I can't have nice things. (Such as a nice body.) Violet got her first taste of that and it's safe to say she's hooked. Whoops.

While we were there, V was "talking" to a boy around her age at the next table so we got to talking to his parents and the mom and I exchanged info so we can get the babes together. Ever tried making friends as an adult? Shit's hard! So it's nice to have baby matchmakers that way.
1. Morning hair // 2. BBQ! // 3. Violet ready for BBQ!
4. Trying to love the curls // 5. Save the date happiness // 6. Just dragging my kid around
7. V doesn't leave poor Niles alone // 8. Weiner outfit! // 9. Nap time sillies

Sunday we did a whole lot of nothing (those last two pictures above) but nap and play while Ronnie was gone doing volunteer work. He's getting in hours every Sunday as part of his dietetics program and though we miss him, it's nice to get in some time alone with V.
In the afternoon we went to a birthday party for my friend's "Irish Twins" that just turned 2 and 3. (How any mom does the one baby after the other thing is beyond me. Those moms are my heroes.) I was bummed for V that she can't walk yet and join in with the big kids but she had a good time watching and crawling around in the wood chips. At least we know girl's not afraid of getting dirty.
I'd never been to the park where the party was held and it was so pretty! Definitely a place I'd like to go back to with Ronnie. It's about 40 miles NW of San Antonio so it was a trek and then when we got there it was like 10 degrees cooler than SA and got so windy that we couldn't stay long. (It was like 60 degrees but you know us Texans. Bad asses about everything but cold weather ;)

I'm linking up with the cool kids even though my weekend was far from cool.

OMG the bow!!!! Love.

I agree with you about moms who have babies back to back. My hubby and BIL are Irish twins (BIL was born Jan 1982 and hubby was Dec 1982...wth???), and I always say my MIL is a saint. Those moms are supermoms! So happy bday to your friend's babies and congrats to her for rocking it! :)
