March 2018 iPhonetography

March really feels like a lifetime ago.  We existed before this tiny newborn showed up and dictated when I can sleep and eat and go to the bathroom?!  Huh.  Funny that. 😉

Knowing how much things would change come April, we focused on just doing the things that made us happy in March.  We spent lots of time as a family and took Ryan on some of his favorite outings.  My friends from my years in DC all came up to Philly for a girls weekend.  We hit pause on seeing all the family that we knew would come visit frequently after the new baby’s arrival to focus on the friends and activities that would go on the back burner once she came.

Dinners out (both with and without Ryan).  Trips to the zoo, aquarium, and our favorite museums.  Soccer Shots and playdates.  And snow – so many late season snowstorms!

As usual, here’s a roundup in pictures of how we spent the past month. Many of these come from my private Instagram account, but you can follow along on my public account here.
