Life has gotten a little bit easier lately. Davis is three months today.
Today--Three Months.He still screams if he's not being held, but two things are helping a lot: (1) He generally goes to bed at 8:00 gets up only once during the night.
I can handle the day better if I'm not totally bleary eyed.
And (2) he smiles and flirts and coos a lot.
He smiles the most in the morning.
It's funny that I am just starting to feel on top of my life and schedule these days, and things will all change when school gets out in two weeks. Since I get up really early with Davis, I don't really mind the morning hustle to get everyone out the door in the morning. Then I love having three mornings a week with only the two little guys. That's my time to get stuff done.
I'm very scared for school to get out and suddenly have four kids around all day. It's time to figure out some structure and babysitters and maybe even camps. This is not my summer to be a hero.
We blessed Davis this past Sunday. I'm lucky I snapped just a couple pictures of him before church--they were the only ones I got of him alone that day. He wore this little seersucker outfit that used to be Buster's:
My parents came to town for it and all of Tyler's family came.
It was really nice, and it forced me to get my house really clean. That took DAYS. I am going to try to put in a solid 30 minutes of picking up/cleaning every night so that my house doesn't descend back into its usual state of squalor. Of course that won't last long.
I got released from my fabulous cannery calling and called to be the substitute Gospel Doctrine teacher. When the bishop said "substitute" I interrupted him and said "I like where you're going with this," but my friend who is the regular teacher just left town for a month. (DANG YOU HEATHER!) I am excited about it in theory, but not so much actually spending precious kid-free time planning a lesson. It will be good for me though. I wish I looked hotter these days so I could showboat a bit more.
Did I mention that Tyler got a new job around the time Davis was born? The company is headquartered in the UK so he works remotely. It's bad for everyone when he works from home, so he rents some office space.
A rare morning taking a call on our bed.
He rides his bike to work most days and has grown a beard to spite me. He usually has to be in too early to help in the mornings but he gets home early-ish at night which is great. He loves working alone and not having to chat with coworkers. For Mother's Day he told me he'd get up with Davis every night for a week and give me the nights off after work. He delivered on about 85% of that and it was wonderful!
Shopping-wise I got a new swimsuit from Land's End so I can quit wearing my maternity one. Swimsuit shopping was not fun, but not quite motivating enough to make me back off the Oreos yet. I also got these lady-like summer sneakers:
I'm sure you're dying to know what's happening with my other kids but I'll have to save that for another day.
