Celebrating... my man's birthday. He's caught up to me again, for the next 5 1/2 months.
Watching... comments roll in on the little album I posted on Facebook of Nolan.
Loving... the weather this week. Warm temps, no wind, colored leaves still on the trees, sunshine...
Excitement... went for a cruise in Sean's new ride - he bought a red 97 Cobra Convertible Mustang this week. We went out after Nolan went to sleep, and left M in charge. So nice to have that option! I know most people with babies can't just leave like that, so we appreciate the flexibility she gives us.
Glad... to have Sean back home after being sequestered away on jury duty. He was at the trial all last week, but was able to come home nights, and we had some nice lunch dates downtown, too. Monday morning till Tuesday supper they were locked away - felt long. Felt way longer for him! He said it was an experience everyone should have.
Looking forward to... soccer season. Madeline is playing city league this year, which is a big step up from the community association league she has been in. The preliminary emails have been rolling in, and it should be starting soon.
Wondering... church small groups will be starting soon. We've said we'll host, so we're wondering who our group will end up including.
Tasting... a nice little treat Sean whipped up. He had birthday cake at work today, so tomorrow we'll be having DQ ice cream cupcakes (did you know they had such a thing?) and going to the Keg to celebrate on Saturday. Those should both be tasty, too.
Feeling... lots of little aches and pains. Nolan is almost 22 lbs, but is still a baby that needs a lot of carrying. I did get in a long walk yesterday, a good stretch this morning, and a workout in the pool this afternoon (Fit for Two at the Y downtown). Those all help. I should do them all more often!
Going... to bed now. Looking forward to another night without getting up with Nolan! He's only done one night where we haven't heard a peep from bedtime at 7:30 to 7 am, but most nights this past week he's only woken once and cried just for a minute or two before soothing himself back to sleep. The last 2 days he's gotten up at 6:15 and 6, though - I'm ready for those 7 am's again!! Sleep is such a good thing. We all are enjoying this new phase, and are thankful that training him for this only took a week or so.
