Weekend in Photos

We had a busy (but good!) weekend. Now that we've crossed over the one month line of parenthood, it feels like the fog is starting to lift. I'm encouraged by the fact that this weekend reminds me a lot of our pre-Madeleine life, so it looks like we're well on our way to integrating her into our lives.

I laced up the ol' running shoes and hit the pavement for the first time since last fall. It wasn't pretty, but every step is one in the right direction.

I've started calling Madeleine "Sweet Pea," so it seemed appropriate to pick up a bunch when I took her to her first farmers' market on Friday night. They smell soooo good!

We have a (very mini) tomato!

Fuchsias are blooming!

The dahlias just keep getting bigger and better. Misha tells me they're dinner plate dahlias, which makes sense given their (extremely large) size.

On Saturday night, we celebrated the 40th birthday of a friend (not pictured). Madeleine was up past her bedtime and slept through loud music, a crowd of people, and singing and cheering by about 50 people. Good girl.

Breakfast burritos ready for the freezer. Why didn't I think of this sooner?

Madeleine is ready for a busy day of BBQs and meeting friends. Thanks for the great outfit, Aunt Sherry!

Fresh peaches at the farmers' market means that I have to find time to bake a peach pie....such great therapy and so delicious.

Lots of daddy/daughter time allowed this mum to go running, get back into the kitchen, actually do my hair, find my makeup again, and get a few extra hours of sleep to power it all. I am incredibly lucky.

What did you do this weekend?
