Small accomplishments

I am starting to feel a little bit more myself again now after a few weeks of being on Lachlan's schedule. Although I'll never really be the same person I was before he arrived. ;) I'm trying to accomplish at least something small each time he takes a nap throughout the day... some laundry, dishes, or another thing that's on my to-do list. Yesterday I actually baked an apple pie! I don't think I've ever baked a pie from scratch before, so there's something exciting! I saw the recipe on Black Apple's blog and was inspired. It was actually quite easy and it smelled delicious when it was baking.

I also took some time to re-pot one of the beautiful arrangements we received after he was born. Now I have 5 very nice houseplants to add to our collection.

We've gotten so many lovely and thoughtful gifts for baby, and I've been making little batches of cards to send back our thanks. Now I just have to get out and buy some stamps to mail them!

  1. Man, you are motivated! I still lack time to do things around home while Mason naps! I'm glad to see things are going well. What a sweet little boy!
