Wordless Wednesday {a date with bennett}

Since bringing Easton home, to say Bennett has been "acting out", is an understatement. (more on this later!!)

But this past week and a half we've been so blessed to have Philip's Mom come and stay with us to help out. And seriously, it's been the biggest help ever!! I'm so thankful.

She watched Easton so that Philip and I could take Bennett out on a little date day. We really felt that he needed to have just me and his daddy to himself for a little while. And it did him SO much good. We went to get froyo at this brand new place just down the street from my house called Yum-e. It's soooo good!! I can see lots of froyo dates this summer. For real.

Then we took him to Lake Wilderness to run around. We really lucked out with beautiful weather! Short sleeves and sun-glasses kind of weather! It was glorious.

Oh and don't forget to watch the video at the end. It's 30 seconds of pure awesomeness. ;-)






Oh and just for fun!! :-)

Can we just talk about how great you look already? I'm so jealous, I just keep getting bigger and bigger for some reason ;). Oh also, you have the cutest family and Bennett is just the sweetest, even if he is going through a huge adjustment right now. I will be asking you for so much advice here in a few months!

1. Not even fair. We don't have any frozen yogurt places around here...at least I don't think we do? *Googles*

2. I'm sorry...uh...I don't see any females in these photos that look like they JUST had a baby. ;) You look GREAT.

3. That video is adorable. Ethan just discovered a spray bottle this past week. Hilarious.

mandy @ asortafairytale said...

 Thanks!! toddlers are awesome!!

mandy @ asortafairytale said...

 Thanks! And yes, he loves being sprayed. What a weirdo. lol

mandy @ asortafairytale said...

 Oh stop! You're the freak of nature. I saw pictures of you in the hospital RIGHT after you gave birth to Weston and you looked amazing.

mandy @ asortafairytale said...

 We NEEDED the time out with Bennett. And he needed it more than we did. Ha ha Strongly recommend you have special dates with Parker with baby boy #2 comes along!

Tiffany Franklin said...

Um you did not just have a baby with that body! I'm so jealous!!!!!!!!! You look great and Bennett and Easton are adorables!

mandy @ asortafairytale said...

 Yes, totally try it!! I'd be interested to see if any other toddlers think it's as hilarious or if my kid is just strange. ha ha

mandy @ asortafairytale said...

Thank you Elyse!! Glad you commented, I love getting to know my readers. Do you  have a blog?

mandy @ asortafairytale said...

Breastfeeding definitely helps!! And actually, I'm not that skinny... my tummy needs tons of work. Trust me. :-)

mandy @ asortafairytale said...

 Thanks Andrea!! I have a long way to go before I feel really comfortable in my own skin again, but I'm glad that most of the weight has come off fairly quickly. Thank you breastfeeding!

mandy @ asortafairytale said...

 Yes!! Froyo date for sure!!

Courtney K said...

Okay. That video? Cutest thing EVER! I am so happy you guys were able to get some one on one time with Bennett. I know he misses having mommy and daddy all to himself. :)
