On a cheery note, I did win a couple of cool giveaways: 1. a dozen cupcakes, fun bites food cutter and a $25 gc to Daydreaming Gifts from Anderson Angels blog. 2. a Super Undies Nighttime Training Pants from Happy Mothering blog.
Toddler Log: 3 Years and 6 Weeks Old
Marlie was not pleased about daddy being gone and it showed. Everything was a battle. She didn't even want to go to school, which is a first.
I tried my best to distract her with cool projects and even some treats like a little extra TV time. She'd do okay until bedtime and then all heck would break loose. By the time I got her to go to sleep all I wanted to do was fall into my own bed, but there were chores to do and then baby boy would wake up. I don't know how single parents do it.
We did manage some fun like drawing on the huge sheets of paper that the movers used to pack our boxes. And we had a wonderful play date on Friday with one of the moms I met through Mocha Moms who also relocated here recently. She has a 2 yo boy and a 4 yo girl. We have lots in common so talking to her is easy. Marlie and her kids get along fabulously and she is a cool lady, so that's a plus.
Baby Log: 24 Weeks Old
Someone is 6 months old! I'm floored. Didn't I just push him out yesterday?! He caught a nice cold for is half birthday. But he's not letting it slow him down! He had his first babies-only play date this week at IKEA.He got his first taste of meat (the liver and sweet potatoes did not go over well). I made him sweet potatoes and bananas instead. He is sitting up and crawling a few steps. He likes to move it, move it!
