Winter Solstice & 56 degree weather!


Today is the first day of WINTER, and it sure doesn’t feel like it. It’s already 56 degrees here in Greenwich CT and it’s 11:45am!

My morning started out great, I fed Ava ate some breakfast and we got out of the house early to run some errands. With a newborn I haven’t had much time to do my Christmas shopping so I was able to get a lot done in a short period of time! When we got home we kept Ava in her car seat and snapped her into the stroller to take her and Cooper for a walk. We had to take advantage of this beautiful weather and I was anxious to try out my new stroller!!

This was our first family walk and man was it nice to be outside!! I am still not allowed to exercise but walking is allowed. It feels great to move and get some energy out.

After our walk Marc and I ordered something healthy wraps. We both got grilled chicken and grilled veggies in a whole wheat wrap! Deliciouss…

This weekend has been filled with a lot of relaxation and hanging with little Miss Ava. She’s wonderful.

Cooper loves her too.. it’s really amazing to see how different he is around the baby. He is gentle and wants to lick her little hands and feet. I am very proud of him for being so calm around her.


We have a lot of Christmas gifts to wrap this weekend, and I am looking forward to wrapping them while listening to some Christmas tunes!

Happy Saturday :)

  1. Are you taking Ava out to run errands and bringing her into stores? I hear some mixed things on when the baby can get out into the real world. I’ll take Allston around the block, but my pediatrician said to keep him out of the public world for 2 months due to flu season. I think I might go stir crazy on maternity leave!!

    • I waited a full week to take her anywhere. I’ve taken her to the grocery store and CVS.. but I put the cover over the car seat. Ava’s pediatrician said to avoid large crowds for 8 weeks, but said don’t be a hermit! He even said to go out to dinner but just pick the restaurants wisely!

      I think as long as you avoid high-traffic places you are fine :) I was nervous at first, but I started going nuts after like 10 days.

  2. I will definitely be following your lead! It hasn’t been so bad since I have my husband home and family visiting through January 4th, but as soon as they’re all gone there’s no way I can just sit inside all day. The fact that I got GIDDY to go to the pediatrician is sad. I even put on mascara lol.
