Get your pads and pens ready because it’s time for the Week In Review.
The Week In Review is a list, in its purest form, not of the things you still need to do, but of all the things you have done in the last seven days. It’s an achievement list, an ode to yourself, a celebration of sorts, and a virtual pat on the back or smack on the ass. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
Need more details? Head here.
♫ You can do it, put your list into it. ♫
I hope you aren’t sick of all things baby because having a newborn at home is pretty much dominating my life right now, so if babies aren’t your thing, feel free to come back another day. I promise to blog about something else… one day… some day… soon… ish.

Let’s get listing:
On Monday, I cried huge, messy, snot filled, alligator tears when Ave was awake for nine straight hours. I only mention it because it was the bulk of my day.
(She may look like the Hubby, but her mannerisms are all me.)
The rest of the week went much better though, mainly because the cavalry arrived in the form of my in-laws and my mother. They brought food. Food is amazing, especially for a breastfeeding mama.
(Kale Salad with Roasted Carrots, Sweet Potatoes, Turnips, Gorgonzola Cheese and Walnuts with a Pesto Grilled Cheese from The Root Café)
I took Ave to not one, but two doctor’s appointments, where she was given a clean bill of health.
I had my six week check up with my OBGYN, and much to my dismay, she went in, and yes, I mean it like that.
Ave and I went for a long two mile walk on Friday afternoon. She was wide awake and checking things out the entire time. I on the other hand was soaking up the vitamin D and praying she didn’t lose her shit. I’m happy to report it was a successful outing.
We also dabbled in a little baby wearing. I even managed to do some vacuuming on Friday morning with Ave strapped to my chest. #skillz
(My glorious I just rolled out of bed look, except I didn’t just roll out of bed. It’s pretty much how I look all day long.)
We hit up the weekly lactation support group meeting. These are everything right now.
I got the courage to put Ave in onesies again, thanks to some dressing advice from a reader (You rock Grandma Lala).
(Ave practicing her Warrior Two pose)
In non-baby news, I paid bills, balanced our checkbooks, watered my indoor plants and managed a quick trip to Target.
I also cut flowers from our yard and even mowed the front lawn. Granted the backyard looks like the wild man of Borneo, but our curb appeal is on point.
I did some blog reading, and last but certainly not least, I caught up with some of my fabulous coworkers. It was great to converse with other adult humans again.
It’s your turn. I want to hear from you. Link up and get yo’ list on.
What are three things you accomplished in the last week?
