I’m going to type this as quickly as possible because I *think* Wes is on the verge of a scream fest…
So this weekend was pretty fun! On Friday, we went to Costco to stock up on everything and watched The Gambler. Not super exciting, but it was a pretty sweet family outing even if it was only to spend a month’s salary on bulk items.
Saturday morning was pretty lazy around the house, but then we had friends over for dinner! I managed to splurge on a glass of honey sangria too. #winning. Wes was well-behaved the whole night minus one or two screams.
Despite staying up until 1am, we got a decent amount of sleep.
Sunday morning was another lazy morning.
Please excuse my grody face. Just look at the cute baby.
In the afternoon, we headed over to a friend’s house for a BBQ. Wes was PERFECT. He slept the whole time, minus a feed. Actually, I’m pretty sure he slept through that too. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and I think he enjoyed the fresh air for a few hours *noting that for future reference.
When we got home, I walked the dogs and squeezed in a pretty late workout. Since I wasn’t too tired, I stayed up while Wes was in the mamaroo so that I could give him a late night feed before moving him to his crib. Good idea on my part, because he ate pretty fast and was out like a light.
Yesterday (monday) was a great Wes and Me day. He slept while I made muffins and did some chores around the house. When he woke, I figured he might want some more fresh air, so I threw (no I did not actually throw him) in the stroller and went for a 40 minute walk. I was a sweaty beast by the end of it, and he was babbling in his sleep for the last 10 minutes.
The rest of the afternoon he was AWAKE so my focus was on him. Then Tyler came home from work and I took the dogs for a 45 minute walk, we watched this week’s episode of GOT, and I did my workout. HERE’S MY FAVORITE MOMENT YET: Wes went to bed at 11:30, woke up at 4:40 to feed, back to sleep 20 minutes later, and slept until 9am. THAT GAVE ME LIKE 8 HOURS OF SLEEP. Even my fitbit app told me so.
Here’s to hoping this becomes a trend!
Other random tidbits:
- I will be temporarily removing green smoothies from my breakfast rotation after witnessing one of Wes’s recent diapers. GROSS. #lookedlikeagreensmoothie
- I have completed the 2nd week of T25 Alpha and am on my 3rd! Love that I can do these workouts super quick and still spend time with the boys since Tyler is usually holding Wes on the couch right next to me while I do the DVDs.
- They need to cancel The Bachelor/Bachelorette series like NOW. The show is just so damn bad. Yet I watch every season. Barf.
Time to go wash barf and green smoothie poops out of clothes…
That is an awesome stretch of sleep! A was a great sleeper, but now even thinking about waking up once seems horrible lol. Good thing they are cute and make it all worth it!
So funny about the green smoothie!
One thing that was no fun with a November baby was that we could not get outside for fresh air as much as I wish we could have. So grumpy days meant a lot of random drives and Starbucks drive thru!
I am so glad he’s a baby in the warmer months, but he inherited Tyler’s hot body temp and I have no idea how I’m going to keep him cool enough when we go outside!
YAY Wes and mama – you are doing awesome. Sounds like an awesome weekend! Fresh air was so good for D too, even in the middle of winter it helps!! Nice work on the workouts!! T25 is so awesome, can’t wait to get back at it. I laughed at the green smoothie bit. Now when I change diapers it’s like ok there is your corn and raisins. Do you not chew child? 😉
Great weekend!! I wish I could find that honey sangria!
Maybe buy mead (if you can find it) and make sangria?? Oo I think I’m gonna try that myself!
Great weekend! Woohoo Wes for sleeping so great! Keep it up buddy! Sleep is good!
Nice job on your workouts! Love T25.
I need that sangria stat. I need to spend some quality time in the liquor store this weekend I think. Need to stock up.
I haven’t watched the Bachelor in years, mostly bc we don’t have cable but I’ve felt they needed to cancel it years ago. Same old garbage every season. I do miss the girls nights I used to have when I watched it though.
