4th of July Recap…A Week Late

Yes, I realize it’s already the 11th and I’m just now recapping our holiday weekend.  It’s been that kind of week.  But on to what we did over the holiday weekend!

We spent the 4th having a quiet holiday together, and Abbie dressed up in her celebratory onesie:

Since it was so hot out, we also headed to the mall, just to walk around…and succeeded in not buying anything!  Go us.

And remember how I was going to keep nursing Abbie in the mornings and at night?  Yeah…that night she refused to nurse.  REFUSED.  No matter what I did, she wasn’t having it.  Just like that, we were done nursing.  I had a bit of a breakdown about it, just because I didn’t expect it to end that way – I was really upset for the night.  So, we’re now a formula-feeding family.  It’s bittersweet.  On top of being upset about that, then came the fireworks.  Now don’t get me wrong – normally I like fireworks…but they woke Abbie up 5 times.  FIVE.  Not fun.

Friday we headed out to Williamsburg early in the day to go see my friend Sarah and meet her new little boy Zachary…but not before Abbie had a little fun trying on mommy’s letters…

The ride to Williamsburg takes about 2 1/2 to 3 hours, so we got there about lunchtime, and Zachary is a cutie.  Sarah is one of my best friends and it was SO good to see her.  I adore this girl…in fact, I started my speech at her wedding talking about how I knew I wanted to be her friend the moment I met her.  Her little boy is just as sweet.

Of course, since there are outlets in Williamsburg…we went shopping again.  But this time, I stocked up on some more cute 9 month stuff for Abbie.

Abbie is not impressed with her new boyfriend.

My parents’ house is on the way back, so we stopped there to hang out and have dinner…and Abbie had pizza for the first time.  She LOVES it.  She may have had it twice since then…

Saturday and Sunday were filled with the normal things – grocery shopping, a Target run, playtime…and I’m so glad another weekend is almost here!
