Back to school!
The Happy Baby
I was totally spoiled by Reid only waking once per night so it was a rude awakening last week when he started waking up a few more times. So I ordered The Happy Baby. 2 days later, thanks to Amazon Prime I began reading it right away! My husband wasn't too big of a fan as I made him pause The Walking Dead multiple times so I could read aloud some interesting parts. I am excited to read more and try different things. Everything they say makes sense and seems to be exactly what I've experienced with Reid.
Carter and I play a lot of games together and this one is so cute! I saw this in Barnes and Noble a few months ago, but bought it on Amazon. It's a memory kind of game with wooden penguins and eggs. It's adorable! Highly recommend!
We've been talking kitchen renovation for months and coming up with multiple plans- painting cabinets, new cabinets, new doors, new backsplash, new floor- but are trying to do this without spending a ton. Last weekend we went to IKEA for picture frames and other small things and we couldn't believe how nice the kitchens were. We're totally considering this now! What do you think of IKEA kitchens?
Hair color vs highlights
This week I finally had a hair appt and it was majorly overdue! I decided to try coloring my hair instead of just doing a heavy highlight. I have so much hair that it takes 3 hours to do a full highlight and with my little bottle-refusing buddy I just don't have that time. So we tried a full color- and it was so nerve wracking! It turned out pretty well- but took an extra toner. I still feel like it's a too warm- I feel a little strawberry blonde. I'm hoping it cools down a bit with a few washes...but I may have to go back for a little touch up. I think once we get the right color it will be much quicker and easier to maintain than all the highlights. I hope at least!
Other favorites from my week:
Reid is talking and smiling/laughing non-stop! One morning I woke up to him just laying there talking and cooing. So sweet!
After bedtime on Wednesday I met up with my BFF for a drink and to catch up. It was wonderful- wine and girl talk although I went to bed much later than my usual 9:30 it was so worth it!
He might drive me crazy at times but I absolutely love my little swimfan!
