Where in the heck did November go? I feel like the last month has been one big blur of diaper changes, baby snuggles, and lack of zz's.
Each week, I have so many blog posts that I am ready and excited to get up, but life with a newborn gives me exactly 0 hours to do anything. When daddy comes home at the end of the day, its all I can do to feed myself and squeeze in a quick shower. I'm so hopeful once we accomplish getting him on a little more of a schedule I can finally be a good blogger again!
This week we're REALLY working on trying to get our little man on a schedule. We're following a not-so-strict baby wise routine, of feed-wake-sleep, and he laughs in the face of naps in his crib. He does not sleep unless he is being held, which makes getting anything done really difficult. Any of you mamas out there have advice?! I figure if we get him on some sort of schedule, we can conquer the sleep attachment later. I mean, he is only going to cuddle me for so many days.
Dinner time is always a mad-dash lately. I eat as fast as I can while Jake holds the baby, and then we switch. As I was hovering over my rotisserie chicken last night, I said to Jake, "one day we'll be
Over Thanksgiving, we were so blessed to have Jake's family out here to celebrate! It was their first time out to Arkansas, and of course, they soaked up all the baby lovins. We had the most awful 30 degree rain, so we spent a lot of time indoors, eating out, and playing heads-up and cards against humanity. Oh, and mama had a few cocktails, which was way more fun than I remember it being 11 months ago ;) It was the BEST week that went way too fast, and baby Sawyer already misses his Rose family. (and so does mama...I didn't change a diaper all week!)
This December is something else! Even though baby basically couldn't care less, the holidays are made so much more special when you have a little one! I'll be back Friday (I promise this time!) with all of Sawyers precious newborn photos. I just melt looking at him!
Thanks so much for checking in :)
Until Next Time,
