News at Home: Break is over!
This past week was kind of a blur. Dante is 2 months old as of Monday! It’s so hard to believe – time is just flying by! Tuesday was a big day. Tuesday morning, Dante rolled over! I was just watching him play on the mat while I did some work – he was doing tummy time and next thing I knew he was rolling over. I put him back on his tummy and he rolled over again. And again. It was pretty great and he smiled so big every time he did it. Then he had his 2 month doctors appointment, complete with shots :(. Y’all that was brutal for me. He was lying there on the table smiling up at me, so happy and then he got two shots (one in each leg) and his face went from smiling to crying and just utter shock. Like he was betrayed, thinking, “how did she let that happen to me?” I had a bottle ready for him and they did it so fast. I was able to pick him up almost instantly and feed him and cuddle him. He cried a minute more at most while having his bottle and quickly finished it and went to sleep. And I know it’s for the best and he won’t even remember it. But man, I think that was the first time he cried because he was genuinely hurting 🙁
I really don’t know exactly what else we did this week. I’ve been pretty focused on getting myself and Dante into a rhythm that will work when I go back to work next Monday and he starts daycare. So I’m waking up early and getting in my workout and everything. It’s been good that I”m practicing, because I’ve ironed out some kinks. And I think Dante is getting used to it too, because the last 3 days he’s woken up at 6:30 a.m., which is the time I’m waking him up to get ready for daycare. Best part? He’s sleeping from 12am to 6:30 a.m.! That’s a solid 6.5 hours at 2 months y’all! And it works great because I go to bed at 9 p.m. – Kiko takes care of him from 9:30 p.m. to 12 a.m. (basically a bottle feeding and a diaper change and putting him back to sleep most nights, some nights there’s some fussiness to deal with) and then I take over for middle of the night feedings (which we haven’t had more than 1 this week!). I wake up at 5 a.m. and Kiko sleeps until 7:30 a.m. So we’ve got the tag-team thing down and we’re both getting about 7 hours sleep per night with a 2 month old. I call that winning!
Oh and I got to go to book club this week (first time back since Dante was born) and took one class at the gym (also first time back). So it was a good week!
Ho-ho-ho readathon wrapped up last week and I didn’t quite make my goals, but I got close! I read 2 books if you take 5 of an audio and half of a print book and put them together to make one whole book lol! My goal had been 3, so pretty close. Point is, I did some Christmas reading and am definitely in the holiday spirit.
For Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge, I’m definitely going to make it. I started the last book in my series yesterday (Saturday) and it’s an audio, so I’ll have it finished before the week is out for sure. Yay!
