I got lucky with a GREAT night’s sleep last night!! That pretty much means starting with a 4 hour stretch followed by lots of 2/1.5 hour stretches that required no soothing to put the baby back to bed. He was out again as soon as I was finished burping him! We haven’t had the best luck with naps, but overall, we’ve been really lucky with nighttime – give or take one or two nights a week.
I sort of got a morning nap, though, so I was able to shower, put in laundry and make hot oatmeal in record speed.
This was 1/3 cup oats, milk and water, plus 1/2 tbsp chia seeds, 1/2 cup pumpkin (gotta be heavy handed while I use it up!), 1/3 cup cottage cheese stirred in at end with cinnamon and vanilla. Topped with coconut and Barney Butter.
Melty nut butter is the BEST!
Maze and I invented a new game today. It’s called “wrap the baby in warm laundry.” He liked the pajama pants the best!
Matt came home just before lunch and I made us each a plate.
No Bull Burger on Popeye, apple and almonds for me. Soup and a hummus sandwich for him!
We were blessed with another hands-free nap in the afternoon and were able to get the house looking fabulous before our company arrived…
M’s third set of grandparents are here!!! Matt’s dad, Mark, and Cheryl are here to spend a few days with us! They were supposed to come the weekend of September 7th, but somebody was a bit late in his arrival!
We had fun playing on the porch for a few hours and catching up.
When it got chilly, I brought out another layer. Check out this hilarious mohawk jacket Stacy, Nate and Drake got us!
I wonder what Maze was thinking…
After some debate, we decided to try to go out to dinner. The ticket in a restaurant was wearing M in his carrier. He slept the whole time – whew!!
So refreshing to walk in the fall – check out my layers!
Our destination was Citizen Burger Bar, the kind of vibrant atmosphere where if a baby cried no one would be too disturbed. In fact, there were two other babies crying while we were there!
We had a lovely meal – a delicious [grass-fed/local!] burger with bleu cheese and pickles
With a Caesar salad on the side
And an order of sweet potato fries to share – SO good!
And we ended the night with some Splendora’s – butterscotch and coconut for me. Amazing combo!
