What's Up Wednesday- January 2018

whatsupwedupdated
 
Hi everyone!! Today I'm linking up with ShayMel,  and Sheaffer to blog What's Up Wednesday. Here's what questions we'll be answering today...

wuwquestions-edit

WHAT WE'RE EATING THIS WEEK: 
I have a dry erase board on my fridge that lists the days of the week. I *TRY* each Sunday to plan out our meals and make my grocery list. If I can, I'll shop that same day. If not, I'll make my list and do early in the week. Here's what's on this week's menu: 
Monday: Spaghetti and garlic bread
Tuesday: Lee was out of town, so I had take out planned for myself. I ended up eating G.D. Ritzy's, and it was yummy! 
Wednesday: Chicken Tender salads
Thursday: Lee has a dinner meeting after work, so I'm not going to cook. I'm going to either order pizza or cook one at home, and spend my time playing with/snuggling Liam while I have him all to myself. Mother/Son date night, yay! 
Saturday: Baby shower!! We are going out of town for my BFF's baby shower, so we'll snack at the shower, and we'll likely stop and grab something quick to eat on the way home. 
Sunday: Superbowl food!! We are planning to go to my sister-in-law and brother-in-law's house to watch the game. I'm not sure what they are making, but I know I am planning to make chocolate chip toffee cheesecake bars, and Lee is wanting to make the sausage & beef, Velveeta, salsa dip in the crock pot. YUM! 

WHAT I'M REMINISCING ABOUT:
The early days with our sweet Liam. He has grown so much lately, and it seems like every few days he is trying to do something new. Currently he wants to hold his own bottle so bad!  

WHAT I'M LOVING:
I'm especially loving that even though I have to be away from my baby during the day, he is having so much fun with his aunt and grandma. He's really starting to recognize people, and he smiles when I drop him off to my sister-in-law, or when my mother-in-law comes over to watch him. It makes my mama heart so happy to know he is being taken such good care of. 

WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO
Traveling! We've been in IL the past two weekends, and we're going again for the day on Saturday. Last weekend we helped my brother move to his new house, and Lee was a busy bee helping the guys, but I mostly got to snuggle Liam all weekend and it was pretty great. 

WHAT I'M DREADING
Nothing at the moment

WHAT I'M WORKING ON
I'd say I'm not really working on anything right now, just focusing on staying current on my house! Laundry, bottle washing, diaper bag packing, dinner making, etc. My mother-in-law watches Liam at our house, so I  *try* to keep it somewhat tidy so she isn't hanging out in filth all day. So each night I'm trying ot make sure our dinner dishes are washed and the living room and dining room and Liam's room are picked up, since that's where we all spend most of our time. What I NEED to be working on is dusting the whole place! We'll see if I get that done before next month's WUW. 

WHAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT
Liam's doctor appointment next week! I can't wait to see how much he weighs officially, and how long he is. I don't think he's gained a ton of weight lately, but I do think he is getting longer. His chubby little belly seems to be fading away, which is sad, but I'm sure he'll go through plenty of adorably chubby phases. I'm also curious when the doctor will recommend us starting rice cereal or baby food. 

WHAT I'M WATCHING/READING
I'm really not reading anything right now. I started Harry Potter on audio book during my pregnancy, and I'm still listening to Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire (book 4 of 6). I'm currently watching Call the Midwife on Netflix, which I love. I'm also trying to keep up with This is Us, and Grey's Anatomy. I've had The Bachelor on in the background while I'm doing stuff at home, but I'm not really keeping up with all of the girls and the drama. 

WHAT I'M LISTENING TO
HP on audio book and christian radio are my two go-to's right now. 

WHAT I'M WEARING
I'm back to wearing dress clothes since I'm working again, but every now and then I'll sneak in something a little more casual if I'm feeling extra tired or something. I just got these olive pants from Maurice's, and I'm excited to wear them! I have the same style in red and black and I love them both. The red pair is soft and cotton-y, but the black pair is more of a denim material. 



WHAT I'M DOING THIS WEEKEND
Going to my BFF's baby shower on Saturday (SO EXCITED), and watching the Superbowl, aka eating snacks and talking with family, haha! 

WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH
In February, we are taking my niece and nephew to see Luke Bryan in concert! I'm excited for his show, and especially excited to spend some quality time with Carson and Layla. We haven't gotten much one on one time with them since I got pregnant, so this is much overdue. 

WHAT ELSE IS NEW
Liam will be 4 months old next week, and I feel like he has done lots of developing! Check back next week for my 4 month post to read all about how my little sweetie is doing. 

HAPPY WEDNESDAY, FRIENDS!
