It has been one of those weeks at our house. Brooks has totally forgotten everything he learned from sleep training last month and is back to waking up ALL. NIGHT. LONG. And it's not even like it used to be, where if I nursed him he'd go back to sleep. No, now he looks up at me in the dark with his big eyes and pulls my hair or wants me to STAND UP and bounce him to keep him quiet. Let's just say it's a good thing he's cute.
Since I've been spending all week in a sleep-deprived fog, I don't actually remember much of what's gone down recently.
Boys before church last week. I heart matchy outfits.
I bought Brant the Chutes and Ladders game last week thinking he'd enjoy playing. What I didn't know was that I was unleashing a hidden beast. Y'all, this boy is the worst loser AND the worst winner I've known since... his father. The trash talk! Oh, the trash talk! And the tantrums if he loses! Oh my word! I was thinking I'd get him Candyland next, but forget that. We need to hold off on competition of any kind for a while. Makes me so glad we didn't sign him up for 4 year old tball!
Last Saturday Justin and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary. We celebrated with donuts in the morning and dinner that night. I called a couple sitters, but no one was available, so we ended up taking the boys with us. Brooks sat in a restaurant high chair for the first time ever! Goodbye, heavy bulky infant carseat!
My anniversary flowers. I love that Justin still respects the color scheme!
Big boy at dinner!
He's also started riding in the buggy at the grocery store. Clearly, he's thrilled.
I always say that the time when a baby can sit up alone but not yet crawl is the baby "sweet spot." Things like grocery shopping and baths get easier, but they still aren't technically mobile.
Bathtime is also easier when I have my trusty helper. Well, maybe not easier. Definitely wetter and messier. :)
That's it for this week... here's hoping I've gotten some sleep before the next time I blog!
