this week has been morning naps lots of coffee. Drew has apparently been having a bit of a growth spurt. My good sleeper has decided he will wake up 5-6 times and night to eat, and when we put him down to sleep at night he wakes up and cries. I sure hope he goes back to his good-sleeping-babe-ways! In the mean time, he’s napping the mornings away and I’m drinking tons of coffee.
this week has been cooler weather and long-sleeved pajamas. August hasn’t been so much like August! We’ve even had some days with highs in the 60’s and I had to pull out some of the boys’ fall clothes! I’m not complaining one bit though…I’m not at all a hot weather person, and I live for Fall!
this week has been brothers playing together. We are really getting to the age with Drew that is super fun. He is crawling like crazy and he is learning to play! I’m soaking up all the moments, watching my boys play together. I’ve been dreaming of those moments since we found out Drew was on his way. It’s usually trains, of course.
this week has been new routines and good changes.Changing my perspective and focusing on my blessings has made such a difference in how I’ve been feeling this past week. I’ve also changed my morning priorities this week and have made a point to sit down every morning with my coffee, my thankful journal, and my daily She Reads Truth devotional. Seriously. Such a difference!
this week has been trying new things. We started baby led weaning with Drew this week, and it has been great! If you aren’t familiar with this method of introducing solid foods, you should definitely look it up. Basically, baby eats what you eat. No purées, no weird combinations. You just let them try foods at their speed, and let them explore. They feed themselves, and there is a lot of research backing it up as effective and beneficial. We are hoping this method will produce a less picky eater. So far we have given drew cucumber spears and green beans. He loved both! Next will probably be squash, sweet potato, and avocado! Say it with me…”food before one year is meant for learning, not nutrition!”
this week has been wallowing daddy and lots of giggles from everyone involved. We just spent two days with Nick at home with us, and it was FULL of fun. Simple fun. These were the simple kind of slow days that I will never forget. Breakfast, lunch and dinner together. Playtime and cuddles and even working through struggles (with Max) in between. Perfection.
How was your week?
