mommy+me... +baby!

We had a very busy summer! On June 28, we welcomed our precious bundle of joy. 

Everyone, meet Miss E.

She is perfect and Miss C absolutely adores her little sister!

The beginning part of the summer was consumed with baby prep while the latter was consumed by baby love. I'm sure we will settle into our routine soon and hopefully incorporating baby madness into it, actually, incorporating our own routine to the baby's routine. She's pretty much the boss right now. Well, her need to eat and cuddle takes precedence over a lot of stuff... like blogging and chores.  I am slowly getting back into my regular "leisure" activities, like showering, Crossfit, baking/decorating, and blogging.

So this week is exciting and busy! My maternity leave went by really fast and  I am back to work full time this week. Which means back to packing lunches! AND most importantly, Miss C starts school tomorrow! Back to school! Back to bentos! I'm excited! Miss C is excited! Let's do this! 1st grade, here we come!

I don't really care if my husband gets teased about his lunches. I don't think he does either. He rarely eats lunches, so when he was participating in the Crossfit Open last March, he needed to maintain a healthier eating routine, I was a little more giddier than he was to pack his lunches too. I didn't take many pictures of them, since he didn't care much for presentation, but with EasyLunchBoxes, it was easy to arrange the food in different compartments.

Last weekend, he participated in a mud/foam run in Chicago with the some of the athletes at our Crossfit box. It was a 2.5 hour bus ride each way, so he needed to pack lunch and a post-race dinner.  Of course I jumped on that opportunity to pack his lunches too. :)
