Tough Love

"I wanna go back to Marshalltown!"

What a wonderful weekend we've had! We headed to Marshalltown to spend time with my family- on Saturday morning we hit the Farmer's Market and ate breakfast and walked around. Sophia was in awe of everything and didn't know quite where she should look- she was most enthralled with the all the dogs though and would turn all the way around in her stroller just to keep looking at one that would pass by.

We then headed to Marshalltown and went to my dad's and Carrie's for a BBQ with family. My Grandma who lives in Mexico is back and so it was nice to see her again and for her to see Sophia since she has never met her before. It was nice to see that side of the family as sometimes it's very far and between when we get to see them and spend some time with them.

We then went to my mom's house and Sophia took a nap while Brooklyn and I went to the Y and worked out. I am trying to get back into shape so she was my trainer for the day. :)

We had a relaxing night and were able to get in the hot tub when Sophia went to sleep. This morning we woke up and it wished all the great dads in our lives a happy Father's Day! We all were pretty lazy and just hung around until we left this afternoon. Sophia got in the hot tub- we turn it off so the water is lukewarm- she loves splashing around in it- we tried getting her in the floaty thing- it has a seat in it and then a tube that goes around it- and that was a definite NO! She did not like it at all!

Now, home again, catching up on laundry and figuring out the big one year old birthday party! :) Sophia has been doing AWESOME at eating real food this weekend- she has done NO jar food and is down to only an am and pm bottle- it seems as though cutting out that mid PM bottle did wonders- she is now wolfing down real food pretty well! She still gets 2-3 ounces of formula in a sippy at snacks and lunch and dinner so she is still getting pretty much the same amount of formula just not getting a bottle. Things she has seemed to really enjoy this weekend were- bananas (and eating it right off the whole banana!) jello, peaches, pears, peas, grilled cheese, pasta, and toast!

This week we'll busy catching up and working on hw- my last weekend of class is this coming weekend- I'll be in class ALL weekend, on Sunday it's to Council Bluffs- and then I'll be DONE! (with classes anyways) I still have MOUNDS of homework to work on by July 8 (that's when all my work is due) and then it's to the islands on July 9. And with all that, we're planning a birthday party and I need to work on my capstone project before I begin my internship in August- needless to say this summer is jam packed already!
