Mama Life: 7 Weeks

Over here in Mama Myers Land, we’ve started our second week with Daddy back at work.

It’s been a mixed bag.

Yesterday, I felt like I’d punched a wall… with my face.

Today? Feeling pretty good. Managed to string together about six hours of sleep last night and just went for a walk with my favorite doll baby. Life is swell.

Elliott turns seven weeks on Thursday (Want to see pics? Instagram), and I think I’m finally getting into a groove. Sort of.

Well, I’m cooking, reading, and watching TV, so there’s that.

Here are a few meals I’ve made lately that I thought were worth sharing (found via Pinterest!). You will definitely sense a theme (crockpot for the win!).

Plus, lists of books and tv shows I’ve consumed since Elliott rocked my world. Motherhood is a weird mix of mach 60 busy and mindnumbing boredom.
