Happy Friday friends! It was such a beautiful week with the cooler weather!
2. We had our first "arctic front" this week! For Texas, that means it was a low of 35 degrees and 55 during the day. ;) Madison and I spent Wednesday having a pajama day and snuggling inside. This mommy doesn't do we'll with pajama days and had to get dressed at 2:00 because I was going crazy not feeling put together. Ever since the day Madison has been born I have gotten up and had to put on real clothes every day...it makes me be able to function better....I guess I'm weird.
3. Eric's parents came to visit on Sunday and we went to eat dinner at Bonefish. W hadn't been there, but it was delicious! Eric, his mom and I all got a stuffed tilapia that was amazing. The weather was beautiful, so we sat outside. Anyone who knows Eric knows this doesn't happen often. He is always worried birds and bugs will get his food. ;) Madison loved sitting outside and looking around, so maybe she will get him to start sitting outside more often.
4. We have spent the week trying to figure out the swaddling situation with Madison. She thinks she doesn't need to be swaddled and constantly tries to wiggle out of her swaddle blankets, no matter how tight we do them. However, she needs to be swaddled because she sleeps so much better when she is wrapped up. We tried the ready made swaddled blankets, but the ones we had were too small. I went and bought 2 new types. The first one we tried, she got her arms out and spent the night flailing her arms around. She seems pretty proud of herself that she got her arms out, so that was hilarious to watch on the monitor. The next night, we tried the 2nd swaddler. She slept from 9pm- 3am!! I fed her at 3 and she went right back to sleep. Both times I put her down awake and she fell asleep...progress!! She is right on the cusp of sleeping through the night, so hopefully the swaddling will help her.
5. On Thursday, we went to eat lunch with Tegan. We had so much fun seeing her and the boys. When we picked Cainan up from school, he was telling me about having a Thanksgiving feast at his house. Here she conversation that followed:
Me: Cainan, what do you think Eric and I should bring for Thanksgiving?
Cainan: Is crab a Thanksgiving food?
Me: Not really, but when you have a feast, you bring something you like to share with the other people at the feast.
Cainan: What about lobster, is lobster a Thanksgiving food?
Me: no, usually people have turkey for Thanksgiving and sometimes ham.
Cainan: Ok, you bring the turkey and I'll bring the ham.
He is definitely his mommy and daddy's kid! To put this into perspective...he wanted to go eat sushi for his 5th birthday in September. Love that boy!
