Friday Favorites

It’s still Friday, right?  I must be more of a procrastinator than I realized, that or I can blame it on the new mom thing.  We are now seven weeks into parenthood and aren’t stumbling around like zombies quite as much.  Quinn has slept a little longer (5 hours in a row) a couple of times now and we have started figuring out what she wants each time she gets fussy.  We are also experiencing a new milestone with her: she is starting to smile for real now!  Her favorite place to be is the changing table, it’s where she does most of her cooing and grinning.  It’s pretty fantastic.  If she has any memory of her time as a baby, the poor girl is going to picture me and Josh hovering over her with goofy grins on our faces.  I guess she’ll figure out soon enough that her parents are weird.

I’ll stop babbling now and get onto Friday Favorites.  So here it is, my favorite things from around the interwebs in this week’s Friday Favorites.  Enjoy your weekend!

Favorite Salad: Mexican Chopped Salad with Grilled Chicken and Guacamole.  Salad meet Flavor, you two should get along just fine.

Happy weekend to you!
