“Want a sandwich?”

It’s definitely cave mode over here.


I walked outside this morning to let Bell do her thing, and the fresh air felt so nice. It kind of reminds me of when I’d be home sick from school and then on the day I went back, the sun would seem so bright. Maybe we’ll take a walk today 😉

Even though we’ve spent lots of time in the house over the past few days, I couldn’t be happier to spend it with my two favorite people.

baby and dad

We’ve become nocturnal, and I’ve been posting more fitness content lately instead of the usual “here’s what we’re up to” mix since we’re still getting the hang of things. All of the pictures I’ve taken have been of this beautiful tiny thing-

her fingers and toes


and my most intense workout involves shaking a rattle and making silly faces.

 the girls

She was not impressed.

Meals have been super simple- at least once during the day, one of us will say “want a sandwich?” and make a giant sandwich for each of us,

eggs and things

eggs and oats

and meals brought over from the fam, like this salad from Zinburger


(chicken, greens,

and their truffle fries…


Someone just woke up and wants to eat/snuggle, so I’m off but I’ll be back with a Family post later tonight <3



For fun:

  13. Kathy on January 12, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    Adorable pics! It looks like Bella is doing well getting used to Olivia being around – how did their first meeting go? Are they getting along as well as it looks like they are? Like everyone, I’m looking forward to the rest of your Birth Story!

  16. Camille on January 12, 2012 at 6:27 pm

    What a beautiful baby you have!!!!!

    LOVED the video. “I’ll just do some more cardio tomorrow and burn it off.” I don’t know how many times I’ve said that, or I’ve heard a friend say that.

  17. Michelle on January 12, 2012 at 6:29 pm

    That video is so hilarious! I love the pictures of both you and the pilot with little Olivia! Can’t wait to hear part 2 of the birthing story.

  18. Allison on January 12, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    PRECIOUS pic of her itty-bitty toes! How is the pup with having a new one in the house? The pic of you three on the bed is adorable!

  20. Courtney @ Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life on January 12, 2012 at 6:44 pm

    Olivia is a beautiful little girl, Gina. You two did pretty darn well. 😉

  21. maria @ a life to Bragg about on January 12, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    Okay 3 things.

    1. Olivia is so PRETTY!!! Look at all that hair!
    2. That tea wisdom is so true – esp when it comes to a new baby. What did I tell ya? 😛
    3. Shit women say to Personal Trainers is amazing. I tweeted that the other day and couldn’t stop laughing. It’s so true too! I’ve def gotten A LOT of those comments from clients haha.
    4. Those fries. I want.

    Okay, four things haha 🙂

  22. Heather @ Bake, Run, Live on January 12, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    What a doll! Looks like Bella has taken to her quickly!

  23. Vanessa @ Swift as Shadows on January 12, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    Gina, she’s beautiful.

  24. Hillary on January 12, 2012 at 6:57 pm

    Ok, two things:

    1. Your daughter is beautiful. I mean it. That is a gorgeous baby.
    2. Seeing your husband snuggle your daughter made me swoon. I couldn’t look away.

    Glad you guys are getting the hang of it!

  25. Tara @ Sweat like a Pig on January 12, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    I’ve watched that video about 10 times in the past 2 days. It is absolutely awesome!!

    Olivia is soooo beautiful. It’s so cute that Bella is getting along with her. I have friends who had to get rid of their dogs when they had their baby because they weren’t getting along 🙁

  26. Michelle @ A Healthy Mrs on January 12, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    Great words of wisdom in a great mug!

  27. char @ char on a mission on January 12, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    Oh my goodness…such a funny video! I was laughing because more than half of those excuses probably came into my head before! He plays a very nice woman, too! haha

  28. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga on January 12, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    Cave mode is what new baby mode is like: nurse, burp, change a diaper, hope they sleep for more than 17 minutes before repeating.

    Glad you’re getting some fresh air, savoring truffle fries, and having plenty of baby snuggles 🙂

    She’s beautiful!

  29. RachelG on January 12, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    The Pilot looks even more handsome holding a baby. lol. SO incredibly happy for you guys. You’re going to be great, as is that cutie! 🙂
