On Friday, the boys & I met Aunt Chica at our favorite Mexican restaurant for lunch and afterwards, while they were napping I cleaned out the kitchen cabinets of all of their "baby" stuff. I ditched the bottles (yea!!) and remaining formula. I put away the itty, bitty baby spoons from which they took their first bites and pulled out some new big boy plates & bowls.
I'm mostly excited about nixing the bottles since I spent 12 months carefully cleaning the Dr. Brown inserts which was just a pain. Since coming home from our vacation, we eliminated bottles and are now strictly on sippy cups of milk and water.
Mom Mom & Poppy came over on Friday to play with Luke & Nolan and put them to sleep while Justin & I went out to dinner and a movie (Salt). I love and appreciate that quality alone time with him!
On Saturday, Justin had a tux-fitting, so I figured that since it was going to be 101 degrees out, I'd take the boys to Marshalls to do a little shopping. I met my favorite shopping buddy (my mom) and lookee what we got....
Kid leashes. That's right; I'm one of those moms.
I learned pretty quickly once they were both walking that they strategically plan their moves and split up on me when we're in public. I can't be in two places at once, ya know?!
Aunt Chica & Uncle Eric came over on Saturday night to hang out so we tested out the backpack/leash. I don't think they minded too much, but we'll see what happens in the future.
We had a late night on Saturday, but woke with the boys at their usual wake-up time of 7:30 then it was off to Mom Mom & Poppy's house for a little swim & family fun until a thunderstorm & high winds put an end to things.
After the boys went to bed on Sunday night, Justin & I weren't too far behind. It was definitely a fun mid-summer weekend!
