This weekend we don't have a whole lot planned, which is strange, and a nice change of pace. I'm hoping we get to do a lot of relaxing...or as much relaxing as you can do with an increasingly curious baby on your hands. I do know we will be going to look at SUVs at some point. Six months in and we have definitely realized one of us needs to get a bigger car for road trips and whatnot. It is incredible the amount of stuff a baby requires! Even just a trip to the store fills my car to the brim since I've got a huge stroller taking up my trunk. So, looks like we may have a new car on the horizon.
And that is literally our only plan. I love busy, fun weekends, but every once in awhile it's nice to have one of these. Before too long the holidays will be here and we will be traveling back and forth from Oklahoma, so I really want to soak up the downtime while we can.
Before I sign off here to start my weekend, here's a few new things on the Grayson front. It seems like overnight he's turned some type of corner. Not sure what exactly, but definitely a change. Like a more mature, more active type of baby or something. It's been an eventful week, let me tell ya.
(he sleeps in our room...in our bed. Shhhh, don't tell), and when we got in there his entire little face was just covered and he was bawling his eyes out. He threw up several more times within the next few minutes, and then a few more times in the next hour. I held him the whole time because he was panicked because he kept choking and couldn't breathe, and he just had big tears running down his face. I ended up sleeping with him on my chest most of the night because I was so nervous.
And then Thursday morning, we had our first dreaded fall. He was sitting on the sofa with me, I literally looked away for thirty seconds to take a few bites of cereal, and the next thing I know he's toppling forward onto the floor. OH. MY. LORD. I have never felt like such a terrible person in all my life. He's been so good at just sitting and chilling with me lately, and it was literally like 7:15 in the morning, which is when he's usually super duper calm. He fell on his tiny head, and I freaked OUT! I grabbed him up and started talking to him all calmly because he was crying and scared, and then I ran into the bedroom and woke up Arsen saying over and over what a terrible mother I was. By that time (less than a minute later) he had already stopped crying and was totally fine, so we knew he wasn't actually hurt, but OMG did I feel awful.
And then, a few hours later I was in the bedroom folding clothes while he was hanging out in his crib, and I glance over at him and he is up on his knees attempting to stand up in the crib. Well, that's new! It's like all of the sudden he is super active and strong and becoming mobile and I'm pretty sure right on the verge of crawling and being all over the place. Ahh! So the very little bit of relaxing I have been enjoying is about to stop...I have a feeling this curious boy is going to keep me moving 24/7!
