Our Week

September 30, 2016

The past 7 days have been a bit trying to be honest but now I feel like I am finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  A lot goes on at this age with a newborn (Milam will be 6 weeks on monday) whether it's the six week growth spurt, the 5 week wonder week, or the peak of fussiness...who knows...BUT naps have been shorter and difficult and at night he was sleeping a lot less.  Anyways, today is FRIDAY and that is when all this started (last friday!) so it's been a week.  BUT, he slept SO WELL last night (I think he did 6 hours and then 4.5 hours and 1.5 hours...from 7:45 PM to 7:45 AM exactly! And, Jonathan did the middle of the night!  We'll see if it lasts.)

Georgia's school hosted a father/kids night on Thursday to gain more male volunteers.
 I told Georgia she could help me decorate the house for fall.  We needed a few more things so we went to Target to look for some fall decor.  We struck out but Georgia had a lot of fun.
 Our church did a kindergarten Bible presentation.  Georgia and Jonathan are on the very far right.
 This week was a donut breakfast for the moms.  We had to take Milam after a very long night and morning.  It was tough.
 This week was also picture day.  Georgia's sub lost her money and order form (ugh) so hopefully I can buy them online and not have to do retakes.
 My neighbor is out of town so my mom is taking her son to school as well (so his grandma doesn't have to wake his two little brothers up).  I say, "as well" because my mom takes Georgia to school every day and picks her up.  So no, I don't do car rider line.
 So, what else was baby Milam up to this week?  Other than us really working on independent sleep (that he previously had been great at) we have been going on walks and working on tummy time.  He's been pretty smiley in the mornings which is really cute.
 He's obsessed with the TV so I try to make sure he isn't honed in on it...just watching some PLL ;)
Two really boring videos unless you are one of Milam's parents

 This week we also tried Blue Apron.  We honestly don't have a need for it and I don't think it is cost effective at all but it was fun and I got a three meal box (for two people) for $10 with a coupon code.  I knew I couldn't get that amount of groceries for $10 at the grocery store so I figured I had nothing to lose.  Georgia loved opening up the box and seeing what we had.  We let her pick the meal that night and she cooked right along with Jonathan.  She ate everything on her plate and loved it.  If not for the experience of opening the box, selecting the meal, and cooking I don't think she would have even tried it.
Tonight we're having another Blue Apron meal and our traditional movie night with our little lady.  I cannot wait.  Snuggling with her and watching a movie is the highlight of my week...because she no longer spits up on me...and doesn't head butt me on the regular ;)

Happy FriYAY!
