I've developed either strong round ligament pain and/or "pulling pain" around my c section scar where Otto is now stretching/putting weight on it. (Like my terminology? Clearly I'm M.D. material.) It's incessantly hot in Dallas. Opening the front door is like opening the oven door - hot air blowing hair and all. It's exhausting. And bonus: my toddler is cutting more teeth and has a serious-all-day-whine-thing going on and going strong.
Enough Negative Nancy stuff though, right? There's always a rainbow if you look for it! Always. Here were this week's rainbow moments:
1) I got blogging business cards! Whoohoo, I'm all official now. I'm going to Blog Elevated in September, so I had these beauts made up to better network at my first ever blog conference. Anyone else going? Let's make plans to meet up!
2) I went to my first Young Living essential oils party/class! I know I said I was going to it about two weeks ago, but it turns out we're all moms and that's life when you have littles... #roadblocks. But we got our act together, had some apps and wine, learned some things, and had a GREAT time! It was a fun night out for me, and really re-invigorated my desire to ditch the harmful chemicals in my home (cleaning supplies, unnecessary beauty/makeup stuff, antiperspirant, etc) and replace it with natural, holistic health options. #mesocrunchy
3) The crib and the sheets I ordered already shipped! I talked about my shared nursery design for the boys here, and how I got on ordering last weekend because everything took so long with Henry. Well the internet Gods were listening/reading and all my orders have either arrived or shipped. This crib took four months to arrive with Henry and less than two weeks for Otto! Go figure. Good thing we have lots of storage space!
4) With all the teeth coming in, Henry has slept until 7am! I was NOT blessed with a good sleeper. He takes an hour nap a day MAX and is wide-eyed and busy-tailed around 5:45-6:15am each and everyday. Alas, the upside to these dang teeth is my squiggly-wiggly-very-awake-toddler is staying asleep until 7am. Hallelujah. (Bedtime is a strict 7pm for those who are curious.)
5)We're escaping Dallas SOON! We have a trip to Minneapolis planned in the immediate future and our babymoon to Cape Cod shortly thereafter. Hello
