Friday Favorites: Time Together

Welcome to Friday favorites: a weekly linky for your favorite blog posts from the week co-hosted by Maya of Musings of a Marfan Mom and me!

In addition to the linky, I'm taking this opportunity each week to write a little bit about my favorite moments from the past week. I hope you'll feel inspired to leave a comment telling me about your favorite thing(s) that happened this week, too!

These are a few of my favorite things:

Jaymz, Daniel, and I connected with some new friends this week! We went for a bike ride to the park and had a nice little play date with another family on a cool, wet morning last weekend. We all really enjoyed getting to know each other while the kids played at the playground. I'm looking forward to many more fun times together in the future! It also felt really good to get out on my bike again, especially now that it's cooling off a bit outside. That might've been my last ride of this pregnancy, though... it's definitely an extra challenge to bike while pregnant!

I've been on a bit of a baking kick this week, in preparation for taking a road trip and being out of town for a few days. I made grain-free blueberry zucchini muffins and gluten-free almond vanilla shortbread to take on the road. While Daniel was at preschool yesterday, I enjoyed chatting on the phone with my sister while I packed a big picnic basket full of food for us to eat on our journey. I put a couple fun surprises in there for Daniel—I hope he likes them!

I'm also feeling really extra grateful this week for our wonderful preschool teachers, Isaiah and Brittany, for giving us the option of "after care" for Daniel both days this week. Their awesome care allowed Jaymz and me to go to the dentist for cleanings earlier in the week, and also gave me a couple more hours to pack up our things for this trip. Thanks so much, guys!

Probably my most favorite thing from this week is that Daniel has started talking to the baby. Sometimes he says, "I love you, Baby" or just, "Hi, Baby" while touching my belly. It's so sweet I can hardly stand it!

One night this week, Jaymz was taking Daniel up to bed and he asked D if he wanted to say goodnight to me first. Daniel came over to where I was sitting, gave me a hug, and said, "Goodnight, Momma!" Then he put his little hand on my belly and said quietly, "Night night, Baby." My heart melted. I love him so much!
