Somebody decided to wake up at 5 am this morning and after nursing, unlike he is required by contract to do, decided to not go back to sleep. I'm marking this down and will remember to wake him up at 5 am when he's about 14.
I am not a morning person. We are not a morning family. We can barely, even with 3 days worth of planning, make it out of the house prior to 10 am. It's going to take a years worth of planning and prepping and changing sleep cycles to get Spencer ready for getting up early enough for kindergarten next year.
So yeah, not happy about this picture being taken during the 6:00 am hour today:
Or this one:
He's cute, that's for sure. But I prefer my cute after 8 am.
Michael, who, THANK GOD, is off today and Elliott are currently doing gymnastic floor routines in the family room. Our plan is to wear Elliott out and at 7:30 we will swaddle him up, I'll nurse and we can hopefully go back to sleep for an hour before Spencer gets up.
Ginger woke up when Elliott did, but with no parental responsibility found a new bed and was awake for 72 seconds (estimate) before falling back into a deep slumber. I'd like to join her soon.
I thought I'd take this early morning opportunity to blog about some randoms.
We put Elliott in the stroller like a big boy on Saturday. His first time. We went to the mall. He did so good.
Megan, Scott and Hadley happened to be going to the mall at the same time. We met up at Gymboree for some awesome deals in their back to school sale. Elliott gave us his million dollar smile while Spencer demonstrated to Hadley just how flexible he is.
I got some awesome deals. I got all these clothes for Elliott for about $15. The brown pants were $1.49. I hope they fit this winter.
Spencer got his first day of school outfit
We took Elliott to Costco for the first time on Sunday. He went in the baby belle carrier. No pictures. Sorry.
Spencer got a new pair of pajamas. They came with shorts and pants. Spencer found a creative way to wear both at the same time.
My aunt bought Elliott a Kidsme Food Feeder. I put some banana in there yesterday. He was able to feed himself while I unloaded the dishwasher. It was awesome.
Spencer begged to help with Elliott's bath the other day. How could we say no?
