6 months and I'm starting to feel guilty. By this time with Madison I had almost everything bought, her room done, and was super prepared.
Poor Aiden, this is his pile which is mostly cute clothes and some chevron bedding. I want to cloth diaper, but haven't taken the time to research how many, what kind, etc. I can't even decide on a stroller system! I need to hit up some second hand stores for some basics 1-12 months. His room is painted, but right now it's the playroom and some stuff needs to be moved into Madison's room. To do this we had to make room so we bought the Stolmen shelving system from Ikea.
|fyi: Oliver did all of this, I sat and watched :)|
It cost around $450, but it's a much better use of her closet and that way we don't need to have a dresser in there. Now I need to decide what toys we are keeping and what we are donating, I think we are going to buy her one expensive Christmas gift and not any toys. She really doesn't play with them that often.
This weekend was the annual Cookie Party, the past two years my Mom and I have thrown it, but we were just not up to it this year. Parties are a lot of money, time, and effort. Thankfully Amber's Mom threw one, Oliver may have cried without his cookies :)
I made Peppermint Patty Stuffed Ritz Crackers and they were really good, better dipped in vanilla than chocolate. The gist of the party is everyone makes 4-5 dozen and then you all swap so you go home with a bunch of different kinds!
We also made ornaments which was fun!
Our Mom's even got to vent about how hormonal and pregnant we have been lately :) I may seem like I'm always happy and up beat, but I've had a few days that even Oliver's given me a wide girth. Whew, nothing worse than a pissed off preggo. At least I get to do it with my best friend!
Sunday was cold and rainy, I just did a few miles around the neighborhood because I woke up with a sore throat and wasn't feeling really well. Later we bundled up and went to the grocery just in case we are froze in tomorrow.
Sundays she gets to wear whatever she wants, every. single. day. with the boots.
I made some comfort food, Caprese Mac and Cheese. Aiden loves his carbs!
The rest was just a lot of hanging out by the fire with the family.
