Happy weekend! Compared to last week (see exhibit A) this week has been pretty great. The highlight was tagging along with a local walking group. We were the only mum+baby pair so I was worried about keeping the group back but everyone was so welcoming. Baby boy loved all the dogs that joined our walk and I loved being outside.
Here are my favourite links from the week…
