A Rest Day and Some Pre-Easter Revelry

Today I took a rest day. Four days in a row of getting about six hours of baby-induced interrupted sleep then getting up with the alarm at 5:30 a.m. were not doing me any favors. I passed the kids off to Hulk for bedtime and crashed early last night, “sleeping in” until 6:30 this morning. I feel so much better with the extra sleep, and I’m sure my legs will thank me on my run tomorrow.

Yesterday was gym day for my Spitfire Athlete strength training program. I headed to the fancy Equinox gym for squats, bench, and deadlift. Awkward no-I’m-not-taking-a-picture gym pic time.

I like how my bedhead is making my bangs flip out. I didn’t even try to fix it, it was too rad.

On the family front, the grandparents sent the kids some Easter goodies, so we had a little plastic egg party. Buttercup is a little confused around her first Easter.

Squish tried to be a good brother and help her out. And for some reason they’re both in their St. Patrick’s Day shirts. I didn’t plan this, I’m not that crafty of a blogger mom.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the new baby rocker! Remember how I went to the StitchFix launch a few weeks ago? Well, I won a 4Moms rockaroo infant rocker* in the raffle! It’s so pretty.

The fabric is really soft and velvety, and the rocking mechanism is really quiet. It’s a front-and-back rocking motion as opposed to the side-to-side motion of her current baby swing, so it’s a good variation for baby placement options in the apartment. Plus, the little stuffed toys on the mobile are easy to pull out, so when Buttercup gets big enough to grab them she can easily pull it out to chew on play with it. Normally she goes after the attached toys to her mobiles and jumper chair and cries when she finds they are firmly attached. If you’re expecting, I would definitely recommend this for your registry.

That’s all for today. I’m just taking it easy, still eating my super awesome Whole30 food (on day 6!), and living the dream.

Now go make it a great day!
