Hi Friends! We finally have our house back to normal after a whirlwind week of family and friends around to celebrate Sawyer's birthday. I have 10 minutes before Sawyer and I leave for Toddler class so I'll throw out a few quick confessions:
- I love opening presents. I think this stems from the fact that my birthday is a week before Christmas and I only get to open presents one week during the year. If I can control it I will avoid having children in December. I have issues. But I digress. I got to open all of Sawyer's presents at his birthday and it made me so happy. I'm actually kind of bummed that its likely at Christmas and at his next birthday that I won't be able to "help" open gifts.
- Per the usual, I got Starbucks on the way home from exercise class this morning. I set it on the table to go make Sawyer his bottle and when I came back from the kitchen my latte was now all over the table and the floor and Sawyer was playing the empty cup. My first thought should have been - oh no! Did the hot coffee burn my child? But my first thought was "oh crap, my latte is gone! No caffeine. Sad."
- Our bed frame broke last night as we got into bed. Its IKEA and about 3 1/2 years old so its about time. Still makes me feel fat. Andrew went and cut a could pieces of plywood as a temporary fix and as I was holding up the box spring I noticed all sorts of crap under the bed including a People magazine with Kim Kardashian on the cover announcing her engagement to Kris Humphries (which was a good two years ago). Obviously haven't cleaned under the bed in a while. But, new bedframe means a trip to IKEA!!
- I'm so excited for season premiers this week! Parenthood, Greys, How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, The Middle. This just proves that I watch way too much TV.
-When I was pregnant, I signed up at several websites and have been getting weekly emails - first on the progress of my pregnancy (Your Pregnancy week 22) and then on the progress of the baby (Your Baby, week 30). This week I got my first "Your Toddler week 1" email. I almost cried.
That's it. I've got Sawyer's 12 month update coming up this week (hopefully) and I'll post some pictures from his birthday party. Have a great day!
