My mom is in town for the weekend. Hooray! I am so excited. She hasnâ€™t seen Henry in weeks and, of course, he grows SO quickly that he now looks and acts like a new little bebe. They are having lots of fun getting reacquainted. And Iâ€™m having fun just having my mom around. Yesterday, went thrift shopping (of course) and bought H some pants and a new toy. I made her a mushroom and kale version of Quiche Cornbread for dinner, and then we all crashed relatively early.
Good thing, too, because little man and I were up and at them this morning! Itâ€™s so funny â€“ now that heâ€™s on a sleep schedule, he wakes up at the exact. same. time. every morning, give or take just five minutes. Itâ€™s like he has a tiny alarm clock in his chest. The magic number? 6:15. At least heâ€™s SUPER funny and engaged at 6:15â€¦. letâ€™s me know he had a nice sleep.
We commenced our usual morning routineâ€¦ Diaper change, bottle, play time, and a little National Public Radio. The NPR app is so great. I grew up listening to NPR (the dum-dum-dum-dum-dum-dum-dumâ€”dum-DUM! theme song is burned into my brainâ€¦ anyone else know what Iâ€™m talking about?) and hope Henry doesnâ€™t mind listening to it, too.
Food for momma:
French toast, cashews, maple syrup, and peaches.
And then, like the grandmama angel that she is, MomHTP came downstairs and babysat Henry so I could go back to sleep. If this isnâ€™t all the makings of a wonderful Saturday, I donâ€™t know what is.
Happy official beginning of autumn!
