Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend? Ours was pretty good, chilly! I’m not digging the cold, guys, and it’s only November? Anyway, Mondays mean the Best of the Weekend and linking up with Katie and Erin, so let’s get to it!
Saturday started off on the right foot with Ryan sleeping until 7:45. Yeaup. AFTER 6. If you’ve been following how sleep’s been going since weaning, you know that Ryan doesn’t sleep past 6 anymore and has a penchant for waking up at 3 or 4. So this was magical. I woke up with a craving for a smoothie after making one the previous night for Alex to bring to work on Saturday, so I whipped up a strawberry/banana/spinach for Ryan and I. I’m actually not a huge fan of smoothies, but this one did it for me. #pregnancy.
Eventually I decided that Ryan needed real food, and since our pancake freezer stash was empty, I pulled a random blender pancake recipe up and made a batch. Not too impressed, but the cleanup was easy, so that’s a win. (also, the dog bowls are on the counter because Ryan gets into them otherwise..)Later I went to the bathroom and came out to see this – my little daredevil child riding his motorcycle on the couch. God, help me.
Pre-nap, we read some books. Ryan’s been digging climbing onto the rocking chair to sit and read a book and even though I don’t encourage it, it’s pretty cute.
During his nap I did some work and read about eczema and natural cures. Mine has been horrendous lately, and I’m really trying to find some kind of holistic way to heal it. Right now I’m working on apple cider vinegar – in that cup is water and vinegar… (also, if you have any tips, PLEASE leave them!) This is what my “work station” looks like. Old laptop to watch Hulu/Netflix, fast laptop for blog stuff, and a notebook.
After Alex got home, we went to dinner with my MIL (Chipotle!) and then did…. nothing. It was glorious.
Sunday morning – YOU GUYS. RYAN SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT. He woke up at 6:45 after going to bed at 7 (asleep by 7:30) and it was AMAZING. Of course, Cooper was up from 12-2 (bear..) so I didn’t sleep through the night, but I have high hopes for tonight, guys. Obviously, Ryan was pretty happy and proud of himself. (JK he was hiding from me.)
After breakfast we did our morning routine of hanging out in his room and reading a book. I read, Ryan listens. Sometimes he reads his own book.
Then Ryan stole my phone. I have about 30 of these on my phone right now…
After lunch (CHIPOTLE! Twice in one weekend, <333) we went to Starbucks because cold. Ryan tried to steal me this basket of coffee as a peace offering for all the sleepless nights. He didn’t get far.
Then we watched Pocahontas pre-nap while I drank the good stuff. They finally gave me my damn red cup.. Also, this is what your house looks like when you have a toddler – toys, sippy cups, and shoes on the tv table, all placed there by said toddler. A diaper genie, dragged out into the living room by toddler. Board books under the table and cable boxes a hot mess due to – you guessed it – a toddler.
Later there was raking, crazy time, and dinner with my mom, none of which I got any pictures of. Such is life. But I’m off to bed with a hope and 3 prayers that the boy sleeps through the night again.
