I hope you all had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend full of booze and BBQ! We’re in Boston and have been going nonstop pretty much right up to this moment that I am sitting here typing. It took us a long time to get from NJ to Beantown, but that might be because we stopped at Crumbs! In addition to the best thing I ever ate, we got these beauties too:
After some family time, we headed off to Newport for Eric and Connie’s wedding. Eric lived across the hallway from me freshman year. His roommate was Pete, and my roommate was Becca. We’ve been tight ever since.
Yesterday we barbequed! There were lots of veggies.
Honestly, after this weekend, I need a nap!
I’m so incredibly late on this, but I took pictures that I never posted! The baby is the size of a banana. The title of the post is something from my brother. A few years ago we were out to dinner at the place where we got married, and the wine was flowing. The owner sent over some after dinner drinks, and somehow my brother started talking about how he wanted a pet monkey. He thought it would be great to have a monkey who could write his papers for him, but decided it was a bad idea because all the monkey would write would be “banana, banana, banana, feces.” Strange, but typical Justin. It’s been a family joke ever since. Anyway…
Little man is about 10.5 inches head to toe and weighs around 12.7 oz. His tastebuds are starting to work, and he is drinking several ounces of amniotic fluid daily, both for hydration and nutrition. After birth, many babies are interested in tastes they have experienced through amniotic fluid, so it’s a good thing I’m eating a ton of fruits, vegetables and whole grains! He is also really active now, kicking me all of the time, or doing somersaults. I love feeling him move!
Before I end this ridiculously long post, I wanted to point out that my outfit today makes me think of Mean Girls. Don’t mind the hair. I hadn’t bothered to dry or style it yet!
How was your Memorial Day weekend? What’s on tap for this short week?
