Welp, first off I am late to getting this posted! So way to go me! But to be honest, this past week is sort of a blur to me…
Sunday, Andrew and I had planned to clean out our Garage. We had recently acquired a whole bunch of my childhood boxes, which ended up taking up a while bunch of space. So my goal was to go through all of the boxes and sort them or throw stuff away and then make space in the garage for everything. We woke up that morning and I made my delicious Gluten Free Pancakes. and we started to unload the garage so I could go through everything.
Unfortunately, half way through the process of cleaning I got some very sad and serious news. Nothing that I plan on sharing at the moment; but something that definitely put a slight damper to the day. We decided to run some errands and just hang out and process for a moment. Then I continued with the cleaning process for a short while and mainly just organized the garage so we could get stuff when we needed it. We will be having another clean out day pretty soon though.
The rest of the week I was in a real funk. I tried to get work done, but really just couldn’t muster the energy up to do it. Besides getting workouts in, I cannot remember most of the week. This is what I can remember though…
Tuesday, Owen turned 2 Months old! Which is a shock to me, but it also feels like he has been here 6 months already. It was also National Have A Coke Day so I celebrated just that on Instagram. Also, I think this was the day that the first prototype of one of the shirts we will be selling on the new website arrived too!
With Owen turning 2 months old we had his 2 month Old check up where I was pleased to find out he is gaining weight again! Even if he is still in the 1% percentile. The doctor didn’t seem too worried about his breathing/sleep issues ( i’m still convinced he has mild sleep apnea or something similar) and she confirmed what I suspected that he does have a flat head on one side, but he doesn’t need a helmet at the moment. Besides that… everything looks good.
On Bennett’s end we attempted to begin Potty training, but really I set myself up for failure on this aspect because I really didn’t give myself several days where we are JUST home to prepare ourselves. I am not pushing it, but he is wearing pull-ups, with some naked time and he has sat on the portable potty we have (something I wanted to avoid but felt would work best with Bennett) but doesn’t like it very much, he will in a worried tone say “YAY!” but he hasn’t sat on it willingly yet. To bribe him we give him hot wheels, which he enjoys. BUT i have cleaned more pee AND poop off the floors than I would like to admit.
Friday, we watched my little brothers baseball game (they won) and then we went to dinner afterwards which was nice and Saturday, we went to watch Andrew’s cousin play softball. She absolutely killed it, even if their team lost and afterwards we had pizza at their place. It is always nice getting to spend time with them; since both Andrew and I only met that side of the family 2 years ago and Andrew’s youngest cousin is only a year older than Bennett. So they get to spend time together playing and that was a wrap up to our week and nice way to end it since it had started with such bad/sad news.
