5 on Friday

ONE.  Absent.  Not enough time in the day.  I had a hard time falling asleep last night, even though I am tired, because my head was spinning with the list of things I need to do.  Laundry, organizing, work, writing (for my blog), emails, errands, grocery shopping, etc... prioritizing can be tough.  Most importantly, I don't want to miss anything going on with Andie, so it makes it tough to get other things done during the day when she needs my attention.

TWO.  Andie has been doing really well with Baby Led Weaning (the feeding herself kind, she's still breastfeeding).  I did a lot of reaching out to other mamas on Instagram and decided to start letting her feed herself.  It's been going well.  She seems to really like bananas, avacados, pancakes, organic puffs, sweet potatoes, and baby teething biscuits.  I am still spoon feeding her for some meals as well because I need to sometimes be able to feed her when we are out and about.  I am hoping she is able to do both for a while.
THREE.  I started my own little business.  It's nothing major - but after buying several bows for Andie, I decided to start making them myself for her.  After lots of encouragement from family and friends, I have started selling them, too.  I am calling it "The Bow Jar Boutique" - because I have always stored Andie's bows in mason and apothecary jars.  I am just doing it through facebook for now because I don't imagine it will get too big, but I really enjoy it and am having so much fun trying out something new.  If you are interested in getting some bows for your little girl or any baby girls in your life, stop by my facebook page... I would love your support.

FOUR.  I am excited for Valentine's Day this year.  I know, I know... it's just a silly Hallmark Holiday... but why not have a day dedicated to celebrating LOVE!  TL has to work all day on Valentine's Day... but hopefully we will be able to celebrate early or after.  Do you have any fun plans for the Holiday?

FIVE.

Its hard when you have a little one to get everything that needs to be done, done. I fight it all the time! So excited for you and your new little business! I make all of Paisleys too because if I bought that many my husband might just kick me out of the house ;) Headbands are addicting! Happy weekend!!

Congrats on your bows! How fun. I'll have to stop by your page sometime and check them out for miss Ava!

I totally know what you mean about not wanting to miss stuff with Andie. I feel the same with Ava and it's hard. I am SO behind with blogging, housework, etc. but I know I'll get caught up all in due time. For now-- spending these moments with my baby are most important!

Also, V-day is my fav so no judging here! haha Enjoy sweet friend! xo

I hope you have loads of success with yout business.
And I like Valentine's day too. I know it's just a Hallmark Holiday but I also don't think a day dedicated to love is such a bad thing. It doesn't have to be romantic love, it could be the love between friends, family, children or even yourself. Hope you had a nice Valentine's!
