Wow, what a day! It was a good one though, as is apparent by the 100,000,000 pictures I took of Ethan. I’m not crazy, I just don’t really have much else going on all day. Okay, okay, and I might be little crazy.
I was worried the day was starting off on the wrong foot, but it got better. After E’s first mini nap, we packed up and headed out for the gym, but a car accident was blocking my route. Bummer!
That’s okay, it just meant I needed to squeeze in a quick at-home routine (this Tone It Up video) and a walk later in the afternoon. It also meant I got more snuggles. Though Ethan stuck to his mini naps, he managed to take like 5 or 6 of them (3 hours worth)! Yeah, no joke. He was sooooooo much more pleasant to be around and play with.
He wasn’t even fussy before bedtime. I can’t remember the last time that happened! Sadly, Kevin wasn’t around to witness it since he didn’t get home until after E’s bedtime, but he and I were at least able to make some plans during the day.
Ha. Told ya’ I’m a planner. What? That’s only like 19 years from now…
I want to also give an E update. He has kind of taken over this week’s blog posts, and since he just hit 5 months, I figure now is as good a time as any. He has been rolling over and giggling. Though he still can’t sit for more than about 30 seconds without toppling over, assisted sitting and assisted standing are two of his favorite things. Oh… he also loves screaming.
Y’all already know about naps, but his nighttime sleep really isn’t bad. He has been getting me up once per night for a feeding, and he’s in bed about 11 hours. Though I’d like to push his bedtime back an hour or two, he’s much too fussy and tired to stay up any later than 7 pm. He wakes up at 5 am, talks to himself, and goes back to sleep in his crib until about 6:30ish.
(Despite the above photo, we don’t co-sleep.)
