I swear I’m not intentionally letting things get quiet on the blog, I’ve just been busy either chasing a toddler or feeding a newborn. Either way, here’s a quick update on what’s been going on lately in my life:
Kyle went back to work so it was just Isla, Norah and I at home for most of the day! It was a good “test” day for me flying solo with both girls all on my own too. As much as I loved having Kyle at home helping out, money unfortunately doesn’t grow on trees so he couldn’t stay home forever.
Norah’s eye gas been super goopy to the point where it was glued shut when she woke up from her naps, so I called our doctor and managed to get in to see him. It turns out that she has a clogged tear duct, so his only suggestion was to gently massage it with a wet q-tip and to squirt breast milk into her eye to try and unclog it. Breast milk is magical stuff, yo, and can cure anything! Her eye is starting to look a bit better now, so yay!
Kyle’s mom came and picked Isla up for a pool day and dinner in the afternoon, so I loaded Norah up and went to my mom’s for dinner since Kyle would be working late. (Any opportunity for me to not have to cook is a good one for me!)
Lucky for me, Kyle only had to work Friday, so he was off for the weekend again. We had a relatively lazy day and didn’t get up to a whole bunch. Isla had an impromptu nap on the couch at the same time Norah was asleep in her swing, which was hilarious. (Not so hilarious when Isla had a hard time falling asleep at bedtime though.)
Isla, Norah and I met my mom at the mall as I was on the hunt for a couple pairs of shorts that would actually fit me. I still have about 10lbs to lose before I’m back at my pre-pregnancy weight, but I’ve grown tired of only fitting into either my lululemon shorts or my soccer shorts from high school. I managed to find two pairs of shorts in sizes that fit me, so I’m happy that I’ll no longer look shlumpy when I go out in public.
After that, we set out on our usual Sunday routine: groceries and laundry. Ah, the life of a housewife ;)
That’s pretty much all that happened for me this weekend. Please, tell me something fun and exciting that happened to you this weekend!
