Yesterday was pretty good. You guys always help me. I did not wash my face in a clean sink but I did clean my laundry room and most of my kitchen and I went grocery shopping. Oh, I also did laundry and I took a 22 minute nap.
I sat down and focused on homework with Anna, which was nice, for both of us. I snuggled lots with Eli, I talked to my sister on the phone, I made dinner. (On Sunday I grilled about three pounds of marinated chicken for us to have for the week, makes for easier dinners during hectic school nights.)
I put Eli to bed awake last night at 8:30. He fell asleep on his own.
I was asleep by 10:30. I nursed Eli at three. (which is a huge stretch for him!) and then I slept until 7, when my older kiddies crawled into bed with me.
Yesterday, Eli wore baby legs. If you’re not familiar – they are cute. Haley sent a pair to Eli while he was still tucked safely in my belly. I finally put them on him yesterday and as soon as I did, I nearly died of the cute. Okay, I died. I laid on the ground and died.
P.S. You have been warned.
P.P.S. Pay close attention to his thighs. They will burn your retina with all of it’s cuteness.
Brian came home from work and said “why is my BOY BABY wearing LEG WARMERS? Are these from Stephanie?” Which made me laugh because he blames all different things on Stephanie.
Throughout the day, no matter how grouchy Eli became or how tired I was, I would glance at his thighs, at those cute, pudgey, squeezable thighs and I’d be reminded of something.
I have a baby. A healthy, adorable, fantastic little baby who we are integrating into our family, more and more, each day.
and so, I’m tired, yes.
but mostly, I’m unbelievably grateful. and I swear to you, he’s even cuter in person.
