It's Monday... so my "get back on track" day. Focused on Foster's cues and did much better napping when he was tired, not overtired. He smiled at me for the first real time! okay... it was at @jedediahb... but I was holding him!
Emmett is hitting the threenager stage HARD. So peaceful moments are rare and sweet.
This big brother grabbed a hat to match Foster.
Yesterday was his two week mark! (Fifteen days cause I started on the day he was born) I've been having some hormonal fluxes so we stayed home from church. Got some good rest in and started the last season of Parenthood. (Because I love therapeutic crying. Obvs.) Foster is getting past the super chill state of last week and has some views on life and particularly time spent out of moms arms. FYI: NEVER acceptable. Mostly I just love him.
Monday morning. I'm trying to slow my rhythm down to the newborn stage. Find myself feeling like I need to rush around... it's been so long since we had a true baby in the house. Have to remind myself that nursing and holding and comforting is my primary "to-do" right now.
Feeling the underdraft.
Ransom got to co-pilot a drone last night. "It was so cool because it can go higher and has a camera"
Big day! Spent most of it car shopping and are now owners of a maroon Honda Odyssey. I couldn't be more pleased. I almost bought a minivan back when I was a single teenager nannying. But it just seemed to weird. I've always dreamed of the convenience of automatic doors and multiple compartments. Oh!!! And it has an auxiliary port. The joy! (Believe it or not, my last car didn't and it's been a sad musicless existence. 😭) Thankful for a hard working husband who has provided for us. And especially for all the homework and calling he put in to find the best deal. #hero
This is what Foster thinks of babywearing. "You NEVER have to put me down now, Mama, isn't it GREAT!"
