Weekend Recap


For a "weekend home" it sure didn't feel it!  We've had a pretty busy social calendar the last few weeks and the last time we were home with no plans the chore and yardwork fairy blessed up with plenty to keep busy.

The husband was scheduled to take an exam for some professional credentials on Sunday, so he was holed up cramming all day Saturday.  The weather was gorgeous so the little and I ran some errands to keep the house quiet for a least a little while.    We also finished rearranging A's drawers and closet that I completely pulled apart on Friday.  Nothing like some good ol' nesting!



Naps have been pretty non-existent the last three or four days.  I'm not really sure which teeth are causing the problem, but her top molars that cut in front half of her gums a month ago are now finally dropping in the back.  There is actually gums between the two portions of tooth and it's ridiculously painful for me to even look at thinking the whole thing is going to drop down through that.  She's also getting her right side lateral incisor and her bottom molars look pretty swollen still.  Luckily, some nighttime Advil is keeping her snoozing through the night (since the nights without it have her up multiple times crying in inconsolable pain - the worst!), but that might also be because of the lack of naps.  Either way, long days.



When the husband took a study break, I worked hard to catch up on some teepee orders.  I had a huge influx (thank you thank you thank you) come in last week, so I'm working hard at getting them filled and also trying to get adequate rest as the pregnancy (and no napping toddler) are wearing me out.


Sunday we headed to the city to celebrate one of my close friends little guy's 1st Birthday!  She had adorable minted. decor and of course the man of the hour was dressed in his finest dapper duds.

Excited for this week ahead.  I have my 30 week check up tomorrow, looking forward to discussing these crazy contractions with my doctor.  We have some playdates planned and just might get a visit from Mimi if her schedule allows.  And of course, I might actually get my act together and start putting Kenley's room together.  I have a few DIY projects ready to be started, just need a few more hours in the day!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

    1. Not nighttime advil like nyquil, just a dose before bed the nights she needed it. I'm not really into giving medicine when not necessary, but after a few nights of her waking up screaming inconsolable after an hour I figured it might help since that was my last resort to getting her get some comfort those nights. She's doing a bit better now, thank goodness!!

    2. ha! yea, as soon as I actually thought about that I was definitely a little unsure! We rarely, rarely give medicine as well, but have had to give some after multiple wake up's in the middle of the night lately too. So glad she's doing better. Hope you can get some rest too!

  11. Even when you're not busy you're still very busy! Isn't that how it always is these days though? Even when there are no "plans" something always comes up that needs to be done. Hope you'll be getting the nap back this week!

  14. I feel for you friend! Mya's bottom 2 molars came in a few weeks back and it was awful. She is now getting an explosion of top teeth, so I'm counting on some more rough nights in the near future. I can't even keep track of them all! Hope your girl gets to feeling (and sleeping) better soon!
