Had my fifth iron infusion of this pregnancy on Friday! I go back to the hematologist next month for a blood draw to check my hemoglobin, ferritin, etc. levels and determine next steps, buuuut I’m done with iron infusions for now!
It’s Labor Day weekend for all my U.S. friends. Have you been up to anything fun? Sadie and I started the fun on Thursday by swimming in our neighbor’s pool. Every time she swims, she seems more and more comfortable and brave in the water, especially since the swim lessons disaster earlier this summer 😂
On Friday, I got a package in the mail and Jimmy side-eyed me because I get way too many Amazon packages as it is. I was like “I don’t think I ordered anything?!” and I didn’t. It was a gift from my mom! She sent me this book because we’ve both been wanting to read it. I also just started The Bodyguard and am enjoying it. I like pretty much anything Katherine Center writes!
My mom and I love a good memoir and are known to pass books back and forth if we liked them. The Sound of Gravel, Point of View, Called to Be Amish, Frontier Follies, unSweetined, Life After Darkness, I’ll Scream Later, Open Book, and The Magnolia Story are just a few of the many memoirs that we’ve read together and enjoyed. It’s definitely a fun hobby to have a two person book club constantly going 😬
We went to the park on Saturday and Sadie was once again enamored with the geese. She chased after them for a good while and I was cracking up. She also took pictures of Jimmy and I in a gazebo and kept saying “Say bride!” as she took them because she thought the gazebo looked like the perfect spot for a wedding.
We had a visit from the ice cream man on Saturday afternoon. Sonic the Hedgehog ice cream?! Day made for Sadie! I was surprised that she actually chewed the gum ball eyes. At what age can kids safely chew gum?!
Jimmy went to a huge fair on Saturday night with some of his family to watch tractor pulls. He had to buy special tickets and knew it would be loud and chaotic, so Sadie hung out with mama for the evening!
We went to the mall and she got to play in the kids play area for a bit, looked around Claire’s, and then we stopped into Target. I found Dunkin’ pumpkin spice Goldfish grahams and they are delicious! Definitely should have bought two bags 😉
Now it’s Sunday and we’re about to head into church for the evening! I took a little nap after the morning service and it was much needed. I’m not sure what our plans are for tomorrow, but I’m excited to spend extra time with Sadie and Jimmy 🥰
