Five days without a blog post. This is a recent record for me. I've been here at least every other day lately. So, whats the deal? Life.
Carson has had a tummy bug. It's been terrible. We're all clear today, so far. Fingers crossed. Having a baby with a tummy bug is a mess, literally. The only positive is the baby snuggles. He threw up in his sleep the other night and it really scared me. I could hear him choking on the monitor and ran to his room. I was so shaken up that the 4 am bath didn't even phase me. We kept him in our room the following two nights.
Both kids are at at a stage where they demand a lot of attention. Finley talks, a lot, and shes a drama queen, but it's kind of amusing. Carson climbs up me like a monkey because he wants to be held pretty often. They also fight, mostly about sharing. Nap and bed time are like a mad dash to check items off my to-do list.
We're still stuck in the Thanksgiving whirlwind. As soon as Black Friday hit, my list grew ten-fold. So.much.to.do. Between that and the tummy bug, I just haven't stopped. Luckily, I finished the kids Christmas shopping online last night. Now, to get everyone else done and the Christmas cards out. Lets not even mention the mound of gifts that need to be wrapped. We did get the tree up and decorations out. Finley helped and it was seriously awesome. She loves Christmas and that makes me really happy. She kept saying that the tree was "sooo beautiful".
On Saturday we made the trek out to the
With all the Holiday madness I forgot to mention our night out. We headed downtown on Joe's birthday for a little adult time, just the two of us. It was really nice. We went to a bar that is nationally recognized for their amazing drinks. Joe had been before but it was my first visit. So good! Definitely going back.
