In no particular order, 5 things from this past weekend // things going on...
Quick update on Cam's big boy bed: Still going really well, he's totally impressed us! We are really glad we went this route vs. the toddler bed. However, it does take him a little bit longer to fall asleep at bedtime. He will walk around his room a bit before settling into his bed, but typically he's asleep within 30 minutes. We actually think he likes it more because he seems to sleep really good in it (I'm sure he's much more comfy!) and he's even sleeping longer in the mornings, so overall can't complain at all. We are so proud of him!
(Also, we do plan to buy a box spring for it eventually once he's totally used to his new bed and then we will put up a side rail.)
You know I'm a HUGE fan of meeting up with all my blog girls, so it's about time me and Lindsay got together for a play date! Her 2 boys are almost the same ages as Camden and Grayson (and her oldest is named Camden too!) and we've followed each other for the past few years (CRAZY!), so this meet-up was well over due. We're already planning the next time we can get together again...thank you, blog world (for like the 6th time) for allowing me to meet such awesome girlfriends!
Grayson had an eventful weekend because boyfriend got to have his first pouch and snacked on puff's for the first time! I (almost) forgot how adorable it is to watch babies try food for the first time...ugh I love it. And it's clear he's going to LOVE food like the rest of this family (not surprised) because he literally whined when they were gone, and kept wanting more and more. On top of that, guess who's recently become chatty?! He just started saying mama, dada, and baba ALL in the past 2-3 days! He cracks himself up too when he's babbling them. THE BEST.
Thanks to some 70 degree days we took the boys on multiple park trips, went on a bike ride, ate all our meals outside on our deck, played and swung in our swing in our backyard, and only came inside for naps! A certain toddler was especially excited about the "sicle" he got to eat, too...
On the days I work I normally make a list in the morning of what needs to be accomplished that night once the boys are in bed, and yet 90% of the time once we eat dinner and clean up a bit, I have NO energy to do any of it and am most likely asleep on the couch by 10pm. Seriously. And I only work 3 days a week?! Sure, there ARE days that I kick butt and knock out my to-do list, but I feel like lately this is how it's been on weeknights. How do you all do it? Stay on top of bills, cleaning the house, working out, making yummy dinners, giving your husband attention, etc. TELL ME YOUR SECRETS! Or...maybe the secret is realizing that I WON'T get everything I want done in a day?? And that that is OKAY? I'm the type of person that hates going to bed with things hanging over my head, or a kitchen with dishes not put away, so it's hard to just give up that control sometimes. Does that make sense?
How was your weekend? Hope it was great!
