How cute is this baby?! Wait, don’t answer that because I already know – he’s THE CUTEST!
So first of all let me go ahead and say that I won’t be doing any “official” update posts weekly anymore, BUT I will be doing Family Friday posts to talk about our weekly goings on. I love being able to look back at past posts and see how much Wes has grown and developed, which is exactly why I’ll keep talking about life as a mommy. Plus it’s kind of the most fun thing ever, being a mommy to this little nugget. Why wouldn’t I talk about it? 🙂
This week has been a little better as far as sleeping goes. Wes was really struggling last week, waking up several times a night and feeding and crying for a long time before going back to bed. It really wore on both of us but thankfully we’ve worked through it and he’s been gradually sleeping longer and longer every night. I love being a mother all the time, but I have to admit it’s a lot more fun and a lot easier when we’re both rested!
Last weekend I finally caved and bought him some baby sunglasses and a hat for when we go on walks. It’s been a lot warmer this week so we haven’t had a ton of “practice” wearing them outside, but I’m hoping this weekend we’ll get out some. I mean really, baby sunglasses? I die.
Something that happened this week and is currently the death of me is that our air conditioner broke. Luckily our house has an attic fan that helps circulate air, but the way our house faces means that the most used rooms get all of the afternoon sun. And I’m not a fan of being hot since I am, I’m afraid, the sweatiest woman on the face of this planet. The good news is that Wes doesn’t seem to mind it…
Overall everything is going really well and just keeps getting better. Wes is awesome, Nate is awesome, I’m sore and tired and happy. Oh, did I tell y’all that I actually did start Insanity this week? Yeah. OUCH. But in a really good way. I even took “before” photos (that I may or may not share) so that I can actually see the progress. I don’t expect to have results right away, or even anything like what you see on the infomercials, but so far I love it and feel super motivated, which is more than I can say for the programs that I was doing for myself. I’m not following the meal plan, but rather just eating oatmeal and MASSIVE salads because that’s what sounds really good right now. Hopefully in a few weeks I’ll have a better update for you guys!
So let’s end on this question that I asked on Twitter yesterday: If you’re a mom, when/ how did you cut back on the number of feedings with your kiddos? Wes isn’t ready yet but I’m just curious. We are loosely following the guidelines inBaby Wise as well as recommendations from our pediatrician, and I know that every kiddo is different. I just like hearing what other people have done because usually somewhere in there is a good balance that we can look to follow too!
Happy Friday y’all!
