I’m sitting on the couch, my laptop on my lap. Eli is playing on the floor in front of me. About every four minutes he crawls up to the couch, stands up and tries to close my laptop. (here he comes, by the way.) I tell him “no” he sits down and tries it again. And again. And again. Finally, I give in and he closes it. I sit, with it shut on my lap, he sits down in front of me, satisfied with his baby powers.
After two minutes, I go to open up my laptop again and he turns his head. Knowing what is going to happen, I just close it on my own. This happens for so long that I finally give up and go take a shower.
So, now I’m showered and dressed, my hair is in rollers and I just gave Eli a bottle. Those words “I just gave Eli a bottle” are so foreign to me because I haven’t really had to do that with him. But since Tuesday, he won’t nurse anytime between 7am and 3pm. This is truth. I still try and try but he’s not interested. So, I’m giving him bottles and he takes them and is much happier after having one. In fact, right now? He is playing and leaving my laptop alone.
He’s teething, I’m pretty sure this is why the change, so I’m hoping he’ll go back, but if not, I’m so happy with our year of nursing. It was one of the biggest struggles of my life, but my goodness, it was completely worth it.
A few weeks ago, I showed you guys this photo and mentioned how the wall color inspired me to paint my walls. Well, I haven’t painted my walls, yet, but I will, don’t worry. I’m bringing this up because many of you asked for the wall color and many of you thought it was my dining room.
Well, I don’t know the wall color and also this is not my dining room, although, I do wish it was. This room belongs to Kelly Rae Roberts (one of my favorite artists. I wrote about her a few years ago after discovering her on Etsy, my love for her remains.) If you go to her blog, be prepared to become completely inspired to live a better life, to clean your home and to try something fun and artistic. She’s powerful that way.
If I ever find out the color, I’ll share it with you, I promise, I will.
I just laid Eli down for a nap and took my rollers out and applied makeup. I look so much like Diane Chambers right now that it’s eerie and I don’t mean her face, I mean her hair. Not really the look I was hoping to achieve but who am I kidding? My hair will be up in a ponytail in no time, so who cares, right?
Finally, we are leaving for Florida on Tuesday morning. We have so much to do before we leave but we are so excited to be taking this time for our family. Even though the weather here has shifted and it feels and smells like spring and my windows! are! open!, I just can’t wait to feel that hot sun on my shoulders and the cool water of the pool chill my body. There is nothing like it.
No agenda, just us.
While in Florida, I’ll be doing a photo session with one of my readers. This excites me so much. One, because I get to meet her and two because how cool that because of this blog, I am able to travel to another state and do a photo session? There’s a lot of happy coming up which makes waking up each morning very easy.
I hope you have much happy coming up, too.
Happy Friday, friends.
