Lately [crawling.soup.capris]


We have had lots of outfit changes. I swear lil miss just keeps growing like a weed! Size 9 month outfit was a wee bit snug around her head! She only wore it once too. #momfail
She sure is a wiggle worm! Hard to get a non-blurry shot. She is a moving and a shaking all over the place!  She especially love crawling all around.  Watch out world, baby Brooke is on the move!! Loves playing with her toys.

She spent an afternoon with Grandma while mama had her Neuro appointment {no news is good news, right?!}  And they had a ball.  Her 'so serious' look.

The weather has been a little cool, so I made some homemade tomato soup! {Fresh tomatoes from a Farmer's Market}
5-6 tomatoes sliced into large chunks
1 onion sliced
2 garlic cloves
2 cups of chicken broth
bring to a boil
[remove tomato skins, they fall right off]

Puree with an immersion blender.
Salt/pepper to taste.

I've made sure to get outside and move, move, move!! Brooke loves the outdoors and so do I.  My little thumb sucker.  She is such a happy girl.  sorryfortheduckface

I tried on a pair of capris jeans that I haven't fit into in a very long time & a size small tank from Express.  They fit!! Eeeeeeeeeeeeeep! The jeans even had a little room to spare.  What.A.Feeling. [obvi look at my crazy face]
[down 8 lbs]

I try to give her a bottle outside as much as I can because I know it will be too cold to enjoy it soon enough!!  We waited for Daddy to come home by taking selfies...

And then mama snuck out for a mani/pedi and picked up sushi takeout...I went for Barbie Pink!

And Joe has to work a half day today, so we aren't doing much at all.  Tomorrow night we have a little drink & appetizer event for his work, so it will be fun to get dressed up, take his car & get out for a bit. 

What are you all up to this weekend?!
