Let me be the billionth person in the world to say it: HOW IS IT FRIDAY ALREADY?! Seems like just yesterday we were about to welcome Monday and now the week is almost over. Time flies when you’re having fun though, right?
This week has been a little adjustment period for us since we got back from our trip to California. Wes’s sleeping habits are on the fritz again and he’s waking up 2-3 times a night. I’m super tired from that and my inability to go to sleep at a decent hour in the first place. And Nate’s exhausted from several photo shoots in a row that he’s had this week. The house isn’t anywhere near clean, I don’t know where half of my clothes are (yes I do – they’re in the laundry basket or still in a suitcase) and the dogs are going nuts.
But you know what? It’s ok – we’ll survive. As long as my husband is cared for, our baby is loved on and fed, and the dogs are loved on we’ll make it out of this week A-OK. Promises.
I’ve been thinking about it for a while, and I *think* that next week is going to be the week that I start trying to really wean Weston from napping in his swing. He loves it and it works great, but looking forward to holidays and future potential trips I want him to really be able to sleep anywhere. So although the swing won’t just disappear, it’s time to bite the bullet and start putting him down for naps in his crib or the pack and play.
Anyone with tips on sleep training for babies, please let me know! I don’t want this to be a terrible experience for him or myself, but I know it’s something that we need to do and he learns so quickly right now that I’d like to do it before any really bad habits start to solidify. Pray for me. Pray hard.
OH! I also have to share this with you guys – I’m so proud – my baby boy LOOOOOOOOOVES eating vegetables. I’m not really much of a fruit lover myself (unless it’s baked in a dessert) and much prefer veggies, and it’s looking like he’s following down that same road. So far we’ve fed him bananas, sweet potatoes, apples and peas and the only two he really liked were the sweet potatoes and peas. Boy after my own heart! I’m really excited to start experimenting with making our own food soon; there are just a few things we want him to try before we jump into that. Our pediatrician suggested sticking with jarred baby food for the first couple of weeks since the texture is so fine and easier for babies to get used to. So far he loves it!
As for me, I’m cycling through the last 30 days of Insanity and I have to admit I’m a little less than excited about it. Don’t get me wrong, I really like the program and the exercises and pushing myself hard, but I really miss working out with weights and feel like that makes a difference in how I feel and how I look. I’ve certainly gotten smaller (I can tell based on my clothes), but I just miss working out with weights. BUT at Nate’s urging I’m going to push through and finish out the last part of the program so that I can see what the results were compared to the beginning. It’s hard but I do love the feeling I have when I’m done!
So yeah – that’s about it! Oh, that and I’m so completely and ridiculously in love with Pinterest these days. I love the crafts, DIY, food, kids and women’s fashion sections of the site – so much so that I pretty much ignore every other app on my phone and could spend hours browsing the site! If you’re not on it, I highly recommend you join, and if you are look me up!
Now if you’ll excuse me I’m off to start some sort of crafty goodness. Happy Friday!
