For the record, we get along great, and it always feels like we never have enough time together.
|Aaron & his mama!|
One of the great parts about living up here in the mountains is having plenty of wildflowers (or pretty weeds) in your front yard. So I filled up mason jars with pretty little flowers and spread them around the house the day she arrived. You can never have too many flowers in my opinion!
Another thing I did was put some books and magazines out in her room that I thought she would like. Also left a candle with matches, a clock, fan, vanity tray, pillows and throws so it would be extra cozy.
In addition, I thought it would be fun to have a homemade summer treat. So I made blueberry cheesecake ice cream. Enough said.
I went off this recipe which was great because it doesn't require you to have an ice cream machine, and like most things I make, is super easy.
And to top it all off, Monday marked the start of week 25! I am super excited to be one week closer to meeting baby girl (only 15 more weeks to go!).
