My “always happy” baby had a rough day. We think M is teething again – he is just miserable. I started a new fitness program today and was so excited to take him back to his old daycare for an hour while I worked out. M is very social and LOVED daycare while he was there, and I was excited for him to see his old friends and have some fun interaction. He was crying when I picked him up and that hurt my heart. We spent the day snuggling in the rocker, and strolling around the mall.
In other news, we now have a baby gate installed at the top of the stairs. RELIEF! We need to leave it open for the kitties to use their restroom downstairs, but we’ll close it when M is cruising around up here on the main floor. Everyone (but the kitties) is happy about this.
I got the speaker for my jogging stroller just in time for our big stroller debut tomorrow! Everything is all setup and ready to go – I just need to pump up the tires and we’re good to go! I’ve got my MP3 player charging as I type so that we don’t run out of tunes tomorrow.
I bought M’s swimsuit today! It was on sale so I bought the whole ensemble (trunks, top, hat, sandals). It is very cute! I am thinking of taking him swimming at the YMCA tomorrow afternoon. We are signing up for “water babies” swimming lessons that start at the end of the month, so I want him to be comfortable with the pool before we start that.
I sort of made dinner tonight! I bought a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store that was too dry (sorry, B!) and made fresh asparagus to go with it. B decided we needed dessert so got out a leftover cupcake from our trip to Omaha yesterday. It was divine! M had stew, peas, and pears. Oh – and Advil!
