A high of the week was getting my mantle rearranged and looking spiffy with the addition of Norah’s portrait! I got an inexpensive picture frame for Norah’s picture and rearranged some stuff, and I’m really happy with how it’s looking these days!
A low of the week was a total “mom fail” moment when I realized that one the nail on Norah’s left big toe was off in colour. I looked closer and noticed that it was kind of peeling, so I picked at it with my fingernail only to lift away the nail and see a new one underneath! A while ago she dropped a 2kg weight on her toe and it bruised but I didn’t think much else about it. I guess it damaged her nail bed enough to kill the old nail. Baaaad Mommy :(
An internet find I loved was this post on Life & Love by my amazing blog friend Holly, I related so much to it and it had me in tears by the end.
The best money I spent was on a $15 Slip & Slide for Isla to play on in the yard. She loves it, even though she hasn’t quite got the “slide” part of it. (And I’m not going to lie, while I paid for it the next day, I had fun too!)
My favourite Isla and/or Norah moment was Norah taking a bottle! I was so stressed that it was going to be a huge fight to get her to take one and get her weaned from nursing, but it’s turning out to be going better than expected. On Monday she saw me pumping and started whining so I gave her the bottle and she tried drinking out of it. So, on Tuesday I gave her a bottle instead of nursing before her nap and while she woke up and started crying when I put her in her crib, it only lasted about 10 minutes before she was out cold. Yay! We’re still nursing for bedtime, but once I go by larger bottles I think we’ll be well on our way to no nursing at all.
The song that has been stuck in my head is “One Dance” by Drake.
My meals of the week were:
Monday – Marinated Greek Chicken, Greek salad, and mashed potatoes.
Tuesday – Sausages with homemade BBQ sauce, green beans & carrots, and rice.
Wednesday – Pork tenderloin with potatoes and carrots.
Thursday – Hamburgers
Friday – Turkey at my mom’s!
My plans for the weekend are visiting with my brother, checking out the farmers’ market, and enjoying the sunny weather (providing the forecast doesn’t change).
Tell me, what’s going on in your life?
