I totally ordered just a couple of things for you today and did a lot of online window shopping for your nursery. Your dad and I just talked about how we aren't going to outfit you in headbands all the time, but I couldn't resist these ones for under $2.
While your dad was at volleyball tonight your brother and I were at odds over anything and everything ending in a ridiculous but oh so real mommy meltdown. First Brooks didn't want to eat supper, then he didn't want to have his hands wiped, didn't want to have a bath, didn't want to get out of the bath, didn't want to put a diaper on, peed on the floor in about 5 spots. Then when I finally get him down to put a diaper on he is thrashing and kicking and I just started to cry and asked him to please give mommy a break. He let me put the diaper on and then got up and plain as day said "I'm sorry" and gave me the biggest hug and kiss. This resulted in me half sobbing/half laughing as I realized the state I was in. He held my cheek in his hand and said "Mommy cwry?" His sweetness really snapped me out of it and gave me the perspective I needed to then deal with the 10 minute struggle that followed to get his pjamas on. Ugghh.
Tonight when your dad got home and we finally sat down on the couch to relax for a bit you started to dance your little bum off. I quickly grabbed your dad's hand to see if he could feel you move, but as soon as that happened you stopped. That's probably the third or fourth time you've done that to him. I told him maybe you are just shy, but neither of us truly believe that with the parents and brother you have.
Auntie Jaime bought you these today! Might actually motivate your mom to get into a bathing suit this winter. Seriously. Could they be any cuter?!?!
It's not even 11 a.m. and I have already eaten a granola bar, two muffins, two cheese strings and am making my way through some Greek yogurt. It's Week 21 and according to my app it says you may actually be able to taste a little bit of what I am eating now. I hope you're enjoying it as much as I am.
We had a quick supper before we had to head out for your brother's haircut. He was not cooperative at all when we got there, but thanks to the hair stylists patience, my lap, a sucker and an iPhone your brother actually looks like someone is taking care of him again. Cutting kids hair ranks right up there near the top of my list of jobs I would never ever want to do.
I was joking, but only a little bit when I told your dad we should get your brother a singlet/unitard because he did so good at gymnastics. He took a little while to get into it, but once he did he actually followed along the obstacle courses they had set up. Once he went through them one time, then he decided what his favourite parts were and did them over and over again. We will definitely make drop in times at the gym a part of our weekly outings when you arrive.
Another great Sunday under our belts. Great breakfast, successful grocery shopping with you brother in tow, huge nap for Brooks and lots of stuff done around the house by your dad and I and then an awesome supper and ice cream slurpee treats for the Family Guy Simpsons crossover episode. That's life. Nothing fancy. Just the way I like it.
