A week of snow days & sick days and five on friday

Friday, January 24, 2014

Times were tough this week.  Christian is sick and stressed at work, I'm stressed at school and home, and had a stomach bug which took all of my energy and 7 pounds.  Carter has an ear infection and is going through a tantrum phase.  Sickness, snow days and long commutes to work have taken their toll on us.

Thanks to: my mom, ginger ale, Robitussin, and infant Motrin for helping us survive the week!

But it's the weekend and things can only get better!

Now onto my five!

A few of my fave Carter words/phrases this week:

NO WAY!  - Carter says, yells, or screams this repeatedly depending on the situation, whether he doesn't want to put socks on, or you put his smoothie in the blue cup, when he wanted the green cup, or you turn on Chuggington instead of Mickey.  It is kind of cute for a quick minute while he's shaking his finger at you or shaking his hands back and forth, but after the 20th time in one day it loses it's cuteness.

MAMA!  He pretty much says this 9,294 times a day.  For so long he would call me Ama but he finally got the first m!

BAD CAT! He obviously learned this one from me- cat lover and all;)

Green- Go!  He's an expert at street lights...and my husband thinks I'm a backseat driver!

On Thursday he wasn't really in the mood for a nap so as soon as I put him down, he stood right up and yelled MAMA!  Then he promptly threw a leg over the crib railing and hoisted himself on the side of the crib.  (I, of course saw all of this on the monitor and high-tailed it to his door as he got himself back down.)  Then as I walked back downstairs he did it again.  Thankfully he didn't successfully climb out, but he is so close.  So now what?  He will never take a nap again if we make it a toddler bed.  Are crib nets totally recalled now?  HELP!

I was a responsible mother and ran to get him instead of taking a pic of the monitor, although I really wish I would have gotten a pic.  Instead here's a pic of him still sleeping at 7:35am!  It was a snow day and it was wonderful!
yes my clock radio is circa 1997 
Mondays are so much better now that The Bachelor is back!  Although the show is drawn out and has way too many commercials, I can't stop watching!  And I totally love reading the recaps on different blogs, like this one and this one!

My husband knows what i'm reading when I'm laughing out loud!

Shopping for spring and a little florida getaway!

Taking advantage of the last season I can shop from the "baby" section of Gap.  And shopping for me too, but his stuff is so much cuter!
