Hi Friends! I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful holiday season. We have now officially entered my least favorite time of year. That isn’t to say I’m down in the dumps. Things are going quite well on this end. I wrapped up my last month of work, so it’s just me and my boys! (Well, and sometimes my mom comes to play, and Kevin is obviously still in the picture, but you get the idea…)
Today Adam turned 4 months old. Can you believe it?!? Ask me at night, and I’ll tell you it’s dragging. Ask me during the day, and I’ll say it’s flying by.
- He has rolled from tummy to back, but he doesn’t do it regularly. The first time was actually at just 8 weeks old.
- He grabs items with his hands, and he pulls them to his mouth. However, he also tries to grab with is feet. #monkeybaby
- Adam smiles a lot and has started giggling recently.
- He takes most of his naps in his car seat or swing, and he hasn’t gotten into a night routine yet. A few times he has only woken me once at night, but other times he’ll get up every 2 or 3 hours. Mama needs sleep!
Ethan is keepin’ on keepin’ on. He is talking more and more, and it’s fun to see how his play has expanded, especially with make believe. I try to get him to story time twice per week and the gym childcare three times per week, but a play date can be a good substitute for either of those things. His tantrums aren’t quite as crazy as they were when brother was born, but he’s still the typical two-year old. #MrIndependent
I’m doing well. I’m tired but happy, which is to be expected. I’ve had a bit of a mid-life crisis (1/3-life crisis?) recently. We’re officially done having kids, so packing up all that newborn baby stuff gets me a little sad. Also, this is the year I turn the big 3-0, so that feels weird (though not sad). I cut my hair shorter than it has ever been and resolve to actually start using something on my face at night… moisturizer… cream… something. I’m not in a rush to go buy a minivan, but I think you see my point.
So that’s us in a nutshell. How have you been? Do you have any resolutions?
