Maze and I are still recovering from our colds. We are feeling much better, but we are both sleep deprived from an increase in nighttime wake ups for extra feedings. I’m going on day 3 of not feeling very well rested, so I immediately nixed my planned morning run for sleep. (Matt was home.)
I believe rest is always more important than exercise if you need it
I fed the baby and showered while Matt made us whipped banana oatmeal topped with granola and sunbutter. A heavenly dish!
Check out Matt’s bowl!! Haha. Yummy peanut butter that looked like ice cream!
Matt took the day off because it was two month Shot Day. Mom was definitely most traumatized, but baby didn’t like it much either. He cried hard for two solid minutes and then went back to nursing.
In other news, he is 12 pounds, 3 ounces!!! 56th percentile. Doing great!
Our pediatrician gave us the go-ahead for Maze to ride in the BOB! The BOB manual says you can start walking at 8 weeks, and since we’re almost at 9 weeks with great head control, we’re going to try it out tomorrow. [Walking only on smooth surfaces for now.] We did a practice few minutes tonight and he seemed to really like being wheeled around the basement : ) So far, LOVE the BOB! It’s so incredibly smooth and seems really well built. The harness alone is the best I’ve seen and is very adjustable, and I love the giant sunshade, peek-a-boo flaps and toy pockets.
After the doctor, we went out running errands for a while and came back to a really late lunch. I was starved!
Giant salad with leftover salmon, avocado, cheddar cheese and olive oil
Slice of Woodstock bread toasted on the side
And sliced pear
This afternoon we did nothing but rest. I cancelled workout opportunity #2 to snuggle with Maze for a few hours. He was obviously not happy after his shots (I think his leg was throbbing). We took a snooze together and played on the bed for a long time.
Dinner tonight was a blip in the meal plan. Yesterday Mona Lisa Pasta was giving away free pounds to anyone with an “I Voted” sticker, so we had pasta for dinner tonight.
We picked up a pound of rosemary garlic fettuccini and bought some of their meat sauce to go on top. Plus spinach and white beans stirred in for more nutrition and bulk. Karen came over to join us.
The first few times I had fresh pasta years ago I wasn’t all that impressed, but Mona Lisa’s is extra thick and chewy and I love the texture! It’s hard to resist eating a few strands of dough before cooking : )
Grammie Buzz and Pee Paw are coming to visit again!
