Mommy & Me Yoga (VIDEO)

I’m starting a new tradition- New Video Monday! I love making videos and think it will be a great way to start each week.

Today’s video is called Stripes! Striped shirt, striped onesie, striped yoga mat, striped pillows (non of this was intentional). It’s getting fun seeing Emmy move around on the mat now! Also as a side note- you don’t have to wear fancy yoga clothes to do yoga. This may mean your belly pops out a few times (whoops) but who cares!

Uh Oh, Mama’s Mad

Recently a good friend of mine and I were in an elevator. I was wearing Emily and holding Romeo on his leash. A woman riding with us turned to me and told me I should be careful with my dog. She said I should never let my baby ride him because her daughter did that and got bit.

I politely responded that Emily wasn’t really on the move yet, and that we wouldn’t be letting her “ride” Romeo anyway (duh!) Afterwards my friend turned to me and said, “Do people say stuff like that to you a lot? Just give you advice?” I told her yes. She said, ”That just made me so mad.” I was shocked to realize I wasn’t mad because those kinds of comments often do get to me. Case in point this morning.

A new kind of morning

Emily slept later than normal this morning. I had time to make coffee, hang out a bit and even get dressed before she woke up. This has never happened before! As I drank my coffee uninterrupted, I found myself watching her on the monitor hoping she would wake up. I missed her!

It made me realize that even though mornings are no longer quiet and leisurely like they used to be, the love that swells my heart each morning when I see her sweet face is so much better.
