He is starting to go down for his naps on his own meaning I don't have to sit with him for 10-20 minutes until he falls asleep - this is a huge help if I'm feeding the baby. We've also started doing this at night, too. It was a little challenging at first but he seems to like the idea of either "Daddy" or "Mama" coming in to "check". And he also gets to have his moon nightlight on until he's asleep and he REALLY likes that.
School is going good - I had a big assignment due this week which I just completed and submitted. It was a group project - I hate group projects but I'm learning to be a good member of the group (I prefer to just do things myself). Anyone else think they're more efficient on their own? (I feel horrible for saying that but at least I'm honest, right?)
T Rex Dad had a good week at work and managed to get away for a work out every day this week. I, too, have started back with my work outs - some how the baby knows when I've been on the elliptical for 10 minutes because that's when she decides to wake up! But we did get three 40 minute walks in and I did get 2 full Pilates workouts and about an hour total of elliptical time. Guess it's good to start back slow after not working out for nearly 7 months!
Last week we also took our first family outing to a restaurant for sushi - Baby Girl slept the entire time and T Rex enjoyed being his entertaining self. Everyone knows us there and had missed seeing us. T Rex always asks our server to "sit down" in an insistingly voice. The photo is from our sushi outing. He loves wearing his Grover sweatshirt (an amazing thrift shop find for $0.99). This photo makes me smile - I hope it does the same for you!
More to come as I completed an awesome baby gift. However, duty calls - I have to get everyone ready to go to our family Valentines Day exchange.
Happy Heart Day!
