Happy Friday

My Friday started off really early (6:30 AM) - Roy had to leave for work earlier than normal, so I had to wake up earlier. I decided to put Charlie in one of his cutest onesies. Mandy and Paul came over an hour or so later to hang out while some work was being done on their house. Mandy and I went to have breakfast. Charlie slept the whole time, and of course, we had to talk about the squishiness of his cheeks.

A little later in the morning, my friend Beans came over. I hadn't seen him in over a year.

Still as cool as ever.

Mandy and Paul came back a couple of hours later and graciously offered to watch Charlie while I took a nap.

(A note to new parents, or parents in general: If people (that you trust) offer to help you with your kids, let them. I actually get to take naps every now and again! I am a much better mother when I am somewhat rested.)

Once I woke up from my glorious nap, we decided to have an early dinner. Mandy and I each had a margarita.

It was my first one in ages. It made me try out my sexy face.

My sexy face needs work.

We went to one of my current favorite places and browsed. I wanted to get this for Charlie but decided to see if it was available elsewhere.

I read this book when I was a kid and loved it. I had completely forgotten about it until today.

When we got home, Roy was home from work and sleeping. Charlie was making cute faces at me.

We hung out happily for awhile until Charlie morphed into Fussy McFusserson. Now he is snoring like Jabba the Hut*, Roy is awake and has showered, and I am going to take a nice warm bath to welcome the weekend.

Happy weekends to all!

* I had my postpartum checkup yesterday, and my OB thought it was funny that Charlie was snoring. He was also just amazed at what a big baby Charlie is. At one point, he said, "Look at him, snoring like Jabba the Hut!"

I love the following:
Your sexy face - whoa momma!
The Giant Jam Sandwich - I absolutely LOVED this book as a child!
Your son Charlie - because he is so darn cute it's ridiculous
Jabba the Hut - because it made me chuckle and EVERYONE needs a good chuckle every now and then wouldn't you agree? :)
