Well, the weekend is over. Marlowe’s father came and left and everything is once again, how it was before his visit– back to normal life. It was probably the best weekends we’ve had together since Marlowe’s birth. High tension at points, but no fighting and little disagreements. I laugh more since having Marlowe– it helps. As long as she’s happy, I’m happy. &even when she’s not happy, I’m okay, because I know: we’ve got a really good life going on here.
We took Marlowe to Miami on saturday. We visited the raw market that we had visited a million times before together. I picked up a few spices and we snacked on some lunch. We debated on taking Marlowe to the Fairchild Gardens where we once members of or visiting Viscaya– a mansion and garden near where we used to live. Not planning our day very well— we realized it was much later than we had thought and most outdoor places were closing. We chose Viscaya giving us an hour and a half to roam the gardens. It was beautiful. It’s ridiculous that we had never visited before. We tried to think of reasons why, but we have no excuse. I wish I had known what I was missing, I would have went everyday. I really can’t wait to take Marlowe back. I cannot describe how gorgeous it was &my pictures don’t do the views any justice.
Sunday consisted of: coffee, a grumpy morning with two hungry parents, cuban food, purchasing a stroller, the park where Marlowe could meet his mother, the beach, &dinner at home.
He made many attempts to use the baby-sling this weekend, but Miss Marlowe only wanted to be in her mama’s ams. Practically every walk, definitely every meal, and every activity at home: I held her. But she was a champ throughout the weekend: slept in the car, played at the beach, happy during meals, and so on. I’m a lucky mama.
A mess of food. I spy a fruit pie in the background.
lost in a maze.
my favorite thing.
Getting coffee for the Cuban (Jewban).
He may not be in her life much, &he may not have done much for either her or I since I became pregnant, but despite everything: he is her father, &I still care about him, &at one point I loved him, so we’ve got to do the best with this life we’ve got.
Also, We’ve reached 300+ google connect followers which means it’s time for another giveaway. I know I said monday, but the giveaway will be announced tomorrow.
Thank you for all the lovely comments on the baby bump post
. I’m silly (I was a first timer with zero baby belly experience) & I thought that blue dress would actually be able to make throughout the whole pregnancy. It wasn’t very long before my breasts and ribs outgrew that dress. ha. Thanks again guys 🙂
Don’t forget: if you’ve got anymore questions to the vegan post
: ask! There are no dumb questions and I’m happy to answer or help with anything 🙂
