In case you haven’t noticed the blog has taken a backseat to newborn life, but it is what it is and one day when I’m much more rested I’m sure I will get back to posting multiple times a week. Until then here’s a peak at what we have been up to around here…
my parents. They were such a big help around here for the past month. Now we just have to settle for (almost) daily FaceTime chats. We talked to my mom on grandparents day for 45 minutes and the whole time Leighton was being so active and smiley- it’s crazy how much she has “woken up” just in the past week since my mom left. I am so excited that my mother in law will be here next month to meet Leighton.
how every day Leighton seems more and more alert. I’m especially loving the smiles she’s been giving us.
to the tradies (short for tradesmen) building the apartment building across the street. Have I mentioned there’s about 267 apartment buildings going up around us? I have actually gotten quite used to the constant white noise of their tools (or whatever you call what you build apartments with).
the JonBenet Dateline special, well I started it during nap time and am anxious to finish it.
for a more consistent nap schedule. Is it too much to ask a one month old to eat and sleep when I want her to? This is the text I got from Travis on Sunday…
that our six week paedeatrician appointment went well. It’s the first time we have seen him since the hospital. She’s a wee little thing but healthy so that is all that matters. Leighton also had her first procedure done (they snipped off her little skin tag off her ear) and she was very brave.
about my first post-baby girls dinner tomorrow night. Our monthly dinners have been on hold since we have had two people move and I was busy birthing, so this will be the first dinner since June that we are all together.
our trip to Melbourne and Tasmania when Trav’s mom is here next month. It’s exciting but the logistics of the baby gear are stressing me out. Do we bring her carseat or just rent one? Stroller, carrier or both? Any pointers are welcome!
Leighton might actually resemble me as a baby. My mom recently sent me this picture…
you to tell me your best healthy crock pot recipes. Dinner prep time happens to coincide with the witching hour so I am trying to come up with more meals I can get ready in the morning.
walks in the gorgeous Spring weather, I’m not looking forward to when it starts heating up more.
That’s all that is going on around here lately, what’s new with you?
