Our Weekend

Well it was another busy weekend full of family time and some work time. Here's some of what happened in our little home:

  • Derek got Friday off as he started working 10 hour days! It was a full week of later nights and early mornings, but I think it paid off to have Friday home with the fam. Derek kept saying "I can't believe how quiet it is here during the weekday!"
  • We started Anders on a new feeding schedule to incorporate more solids. He has always been a little cautious with feeding, but these last 3 weeks he's become a bit more adventurous with new food (finally!) and is scarfing it down. After a routine checkup, the dr. advised that 1) I am nursing him too much and 2) he should be sleeping through the night (he's currently waking up 2 times). So we put a new plan in place that feels like we are back to feeding him every 2 hours (3 solid meals and 3 snacks) but it seems to be working. He's starting to sleep through the night again!
  • We tried to feed the geese without much success, but it was fun and we laughed a lot.
  • We went to buy Anders a new car seat. From the checkup we found out that Anders is in the 12 month weight category and 18 month height category. Needless to say he is a big boy (he's 9 months old). We decided to get a 3 in one that will hopefully last his car seat/booster seat days.
  • Derek and I were able to snuggle and watch a movie. It felt like ages since we have done that.
  • On Saturday I had to help facilitate a Career Workshop for my church. It was a great day and I got to meet some interesting people.
  • I came home exhausted and my lovely husband had the house cleaned top to bottom and even had a candle burning. Oh I love that man!
  • Derek fixed our vacuum cleaner and installed the car seat, Anders helping of course. 
  • We ate homemade pizza. My favorite!
  • Anders started to go to bed earlier (my, this has been a weekend full of Anders changes!). I'm talking 7:30 pm as opposed to his 8:30 pm since birth.
  • We had a lazy Sunday morning. Thank you Anders for deciding to sleep in!
  • Derek made "long john" crepes... they were filled with whipped cream, blueberries, butter, and syrup. Oh so good, but oh so bad for the waistline. 
  • We went for a lovely Sunday walk; the sun was finally out! It was a bit cool, but nothing a sweater couldn't fix.
  • The house smelled of warm pulled pork cooking in the crock pot. Perfect for our after-walk supper.
  • Anders "read" his books and was mesmerized by the washing machine.
