The week started out rocky, but getting out of the house each day, combined with Dave forcing me to clean house less and nap more, has helped more than I can say.
Seriously. Any attempt I make at explaining this emotional transformation will seem like an exaggeration. But, dude. What a difference sleep and fresh air make.
To the currently preggers: please, please promise me you will find a way to get out of your house once you have this baby and your lady parts no longer throb. Having a baby in the winter? Never fear; this is why God made Nordstom.
Dave and I ventured out today and found all kinds of fun things at their Pentagon City Mall location. Like a yummy cafe that pipes in soft jazz and has free WiFi, and super-fancy “Mothers’ Room” for feeding and changing your kiddo and whatnot:
Hat Tip: Beth. OMG you were so right about this place!
As an added bonus, the Cafe and Mothers’ Room are right next to the ADORABLE, fancy-pants Nordstrom baby clothes section.
Of note: whenever I want to see what something will look like on Suzianne, I make Dave hold it up to himself. Here’s Dave modeling how Suzianne will look in this dress (which we now own) when she’s trying to poop:
Special thanks to Granny Sue Sue for making today’s Team Newman Starbucks/Park/Nordstrom adventure possible. While we were galavanting around Northern Virginia, Suzianne was enjoying her day at the GSS spa:
Today, I go in for my one month check up.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been a month since Suzianne came barreling out into the world. I’m so glad she’s ours, even if she has knocked my hormones and beloved to-do list off kilter.
