We had a great weekend full of memories and blowouts. 😆 I know you’re all shocked.
Yesterday I took Kensie to see the Lion King while Chris took Elle to run some errands. I thought K would be so excited for time alone with just mommy…Instead she got SO upset that L wasn’t coming with us and cried because she was going in “Daddy’s truck”. “noooo!!! 😭 I want my sister!! That’s Leighton’s seat!!!”
They are so dang sweet together and I’ve always known KB has the biggest heart but her love for “my sister!!” confirms it more each day!
She DID enjoy the movie once I convinced her she would get to see Leighton again in just a little bit. 😆 The “scary” parts were definitely scarier when not animated but I explained that Scar is naughty so she just kept saying “he is naughty!!!!” during the bad parts and pushed through like a champ.
On Friday we braved it up to the gym in the afternoon as a family of 4! K was excited to be back in her stomping grounds and it was like she never left (hence the umbrella in the video…that was over the Minnie Mouse house she brought out to the middle of the floor 🤦🏼♀️. Also, wasn’t raining.)
I was able to do my first “RX” WOD back with a barbell and I’ve definitely got a ways to go, but it felt pretty great and not as heavy as I thought it might. 😬
4 rounds with a 3:00 clock:
8 burpees over bar
12 deadlifts (65lb)
9 hang power snatches
6 overhead squats
Complete a round, rest the remainder of the 3:00. Repeat 4x…these were the last 2 sets.
Chris chased K around to make sure she stayed out of the way and luckily, L had no choice but to stay put. 😂
I’m doing a 28 day nutrition challenge with the gym right now and have noticed the biggest difference in Leighton’s eating and sleeping habits this last week!
Since my calories have been more nutrient dense, so have hers. She’s eating less frequently and sleeping longer stretches at a time. She’s been a quick eater and great sleeper since Day 1, but now she’s going 3-4 hour stretches during the day and has gone the last 2 nights from 8p-5a without waking up to eat! (She was waking up around 1-2a to eat). 🙌🏼
The rest of our weekend consisted of watching K dance to “let it goooo”, painting, playing doctor and talking non stop…all while L slept.
Play date with James!
OH, and I painted K’s nails for her so she’d stop coloring them with markers 😂
“What color do you want?” “…everything”
This morning we dropped Kensie off with B (her grandma) for a fun few days with her cousins. I’m sure when she gets back she’ll be more excited to see Leighton than mom and dad. 🤷🏼♀️❤️
