All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

We hit a major milestone tonight.  We take M out to dinner on an almost nightly basis (remember, I cook for M but not for B – but that is going to change this week!) – and he sits through it like a trooper every night and eats his meal, plays with his toys, makes friends with strangers, etc.  He very rarely fusses and we are told quite regularly what a great, well-behaved baby he is out in public.  We could not agree more (and yes, we know we’re very lucky!). At lunch today, we were told that, “he’s a dandy!”  That tickled me!

We typically go to restaurants where you get one course and you’re out of there, just to play it safe and to not extend M past his limit.

Tonight?  Tonight we went out for a nice dinner.  B even got dressed up (and he looked terrific!).  We went out for a meal that consisted of three courses and M was his typical, normal, happy self.  All of this after very limited nap time today.  We arrived around 6:30 and left at 8:00.  Around 7:50, we had to take him out of his high chair so he could look around and flirt with more people – but he was not at all fussy.

I am so proud!  I have always wanted to have the kids who can sit through a meal and enjoy the family time.  I think we have one of those kids  🙂  I think it’s 50% luck (M is naturally very laid back) and 50% experience.  We’ve made this a priority since the day after he came home from the hospital, and I’m so glad we did!

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!
