Heyyy check it out!
The first piece of baby gear for #2 is officially set up in our room.
I’ve heard great things about these Rock n’ Plays, so I’m excited to try one out with the new guy. Supposedly they’re magical for newborn sleep! I snagged this off Craigslist over the weekend, and we also got a white crib (also through Craigs).
We still don’t have an actual room set up, but should something crazy happen in the next 6 weeks, I’m calling us “ready enough.”
My next job is to break into the BOXES of baby clothes in the basement and start washing things…
Poor Mason had kind of a rough weekend–not that you’d know it by looking at him.
He came home from daycare last Friday with hand, foot, and mouth disease. SUCH a weird (gross) disease! It started with a fever, and then he broke out in super itchy blister-like sores all over his body (NOT just his hands, feet, and mouth–false advertising!).
I felt bad because he was miiiiiserable on Thursday night, literally screaming and grabbing at his feet, but all we could see at that point was that his heels were a little red. We had no idea why he was having such a dramatic reaction to what we thought was a little rubbing from his shoes (did he VERY suddenly grow out of them??).
And then–boom. Fever. Blisters everywhere.
Weirdly, he never seemed as uncomfortable as he was that first night. He was pretty happy all weekend–just a little more itchy.
Not too itchy to try out some new car-driving surfaces, rocky terrain and all.
On Saturday, I headed to a baby shower for my friend Kyla. It was at a lakeside shelter, which was risky given that it was supposed to rain all day, but luckily it held off until we were done.
I’d never been to an outdoor shower before–loved it! Everything went beautifully.
Kyla’s having a boy, like literally everyone I know. Something’s in the water in our area, it’s weird–none of us can produce girls here!
I’m excited that our little dude will have a buddy his age!
Yesterday, after picking up our Craigslist crib and jamming it into our tiny trunk with bungee cords, we headed downtown for a little family walk on the lake.
In my case, this means lots of drooling over boats. I want one soooo bad…someday!
Mason’s highlight: the ducks.
Such a nice way to end a weekend!
So much for the “rain all weekend” weather forecast, ha.
Back to work today–it’s officially my last week at my job! Such a strange/exciting/scary feeling!
Oh, and did you notice what I did to the blog?? I’m kind of a blog makeover junkie…I just wasn’t feeling the gold on my previous design. It really wasn’t me. I’m loving this for now, but who knows if the itch will come back? Ha!
What do you think of the new look?
How was your weekend?
Anyone used a Rock n’ Play before? Is it as miraculous as they say??
Anyone experienced this crazy hand, foot, mouth disease with your kiddos? Any advice?
Am I the only one who’s weirdly obsessed with becoming a boat owner?
