We had a fun visit from my mom & stepdad February 2 – 13! My mom made us lots of good dinners and we had fun watching This Is Us while I nursed Davin in the evenings. My mom helped us sort a bunch of clothes my friend gave us and do a photo shoot! Even if it didn’t turn out exactly pinterest perfect, it was fun and we got lots of cute shots :).
Then Ben’s parents and youngest 2 siblings visited Feb 17 – 19 for a fun weekend!
Having family here to keep me company, Ben escaped to get a bit of woodworking in and finished the changing table – it turned out so cute and the yellow decal on the side that he carved has 7 petals :-)! He also learned how to use his lathe and made a couple bowls. Also notice the ABC cross stitch on the wall is something my Grandmom Schollian (my dad’s mom) made for me when I was a baby :-).
And lots more pics of our cutie the first month:
The first month we tried to get him in a routine of Eat Play (mostly skipped this part lol) Sleep every 3 hours. He slept in our room in the pack n play napper insert (see pic above). Week three was a little rough for me (lots of tears :-/) cause I thought I’d be back to getting stuff done – maybe working on school stuff a bit… but I was barely getting a shower in every other day lol… Basically we stayed up kind of late cause Davin seemed to want to eat and fuss all evening from like 7-11. Then if I was in bed from 11pm- 11am/noon I’d get about 6-7 hours of sleep between feedings lol. But it was nice to have my mom to keep me extra company that week and once I gave up some expectations it was more manageable lol.
