I had all these big plans for the my post today (and tomorrow) – Mason’s “real” six month photos today and and FINALLY the photo reveal of what was in the package (which we ended up giving to him as a half birthday present since we didn’t get around to it weeks ago) and guess what? I’m at work and all of those photos are at home. Boo!
So instead: our weekend. Friday night was a rough night that involved Mason screaming his head off from 6:00 until he went to bed. He’d only gotten 45 minutes of sleep ALL DAY at daycare, so he was tired beyond belief. I wish babies were smart enough to sleep when they were exhausted instead of screaming angrily.
Saturday, I got to spend the day shopping with Mason’s Auntie Sarah. We hit a “Here We Grow Again” kid’s consignment sale and I scored 26 items of Mason clothing for $57. He is now officially ready for this colder weather! Auntie Sarah splurged and bought him an adorable jean jacket, coat, and cute shirt that will fit in a few months. He’s going to be a stylin’ little dude! We bummed around the city, got some lunch, and just had a wonderful baby-free morning/afternoon. Mason’s Grandma B came over around noon to hang out with him while SuperDad mowed the lawn, so I think everyone had a good day!
Then, once it started getting dark, we had a bonfire. We usually start them after Mason goes to bed and bring the baby monitor out with us, but since it’s getting darker earlier (boo) we started earlier and brought Mason out with us.
He was pretty entranced with the colorful jumping crackling orange thing. Unfortunately it got a bit too cold for him, so I had to cut his fun short!
On Sunday morning, I threw all of his new clothes in the wash and went to put the larger sizes in storage and discovered an entire tub of 6-9 month clothes I didn’t know he had. Oops. He now needs a walk in closet! It’s a bit nuts the amount of clothes he has. At this rate, he’s going to have to NEVER wear the same outfit twice for the next few months to get to wear each one before they get too small. I also discovered a bunch of stuff that would have really come in handy keeping him warm at the fire the night before. Dang, always a day late!
In the afternoon, Grandma J came over and hung out with the Wee Man while we went bowling and grocery shopping. He had fun showing her how high he can jump in his jumperoo and getting rocked to sleep at nap time, something I haven’t done since he was itty bitty.
She ended up putting him down for a late nap (at like 6:45) and we let him sleep until it was bath and bed time. Poor guy didn’t know what hit him when he woke up and two minutes later he was sitting in the bathtub! We introduced him to a bathtime friend – rubber ducky! and he thought that was pretty cool.
Then it was dinner and bedtime for him and I followed half an hour later. I’m not used to all that excitement in one weekend!
