Our Life Outside of Baby

With all of the baby stuff happening lately, it's tough to remember that I have a life outside of that too. It seems like it's all people want to talk about. That said, Dan and I have had a lot of other things going on in our lives too - like snow, animals, and food.

Okay, I guess that stuff isn't overly exciting, but I'm going to take a few minutes to appreciate the little things in our lives before things change drastically in a few months.

We have had lots of snow... on several separate days... that Smudge and Gilligan have both participated in. (Stormy is smart and watched the boys freeze their tails off from the window).

We have had lots of kitty and puppy snuggles around here...

We celebrated Valentine's Day and our six year anniversary...

We made muffins (twice), smoothies (because I'm craving fruit like crazy), and iced (decaf) coffee because, well, it's all I want...

And, even though this post is supposed to be about what we've been up to OTHER than Baby Cookie, I just couldn't resist the cutest little airplane outfit in history... and laughed so hard when we caught BOTH cats napping in the baby swing on separate occasions. They're going to in for a rude awakening come September...

See? Life isn't TOO exciting over here lately, but we're loving it anyway! We are hoping to travel soon while Dan is on his week and a half break from classes, so here's to crossing our fingers and toes for just the right Space A flight! 

What have you been up to lately?



  1. That little outfit is too cute, baby is going to be adorable in it. :)

  2. I love the outfit! Yes, we had to teach the dogs "that's the baby's" ASAP. Even when SoldierMan set up the stroller, Achilles was using it to store his toys when he thought we weren't looking!

  3. It's snowed a lot here too-- I missed two and a half days total because of the snow. And I feel you on the kitty cuddles.... right now Frankie is sitting in my lap!

  4. I have to say one of my guilty pleasures happens to be muffins! I unfortunately do not get to eat them often because my husband and I try to stick to mostly paleo and I haven't found any truly awesome paleo recipes for muffins. If I did and they weren't too complicated with 23498234 ingredients I would be making those babies all the time!!!! :) PS love the animals.

  5. The muffins and smoothies look tasty!

  6. That little airplane outfit is adorable! You are going to have the cutest baby ever!

  7. I'm so impressed that you not only already have a baby swing but that you have it put together already. I'm pretty sure ours got assembled when Owen was about a week old...

  8. Looks like you've been having a great time! :) All of those food pictures are making me hungry. Now I want a muffin! :)

  9. I love the cats in the swing! It is so hard to resist buying baby clothes. It becomes an addiction!
