He's napping, and we all know I won't wake a sleeping baby, so that picture will have to suffice.
We had an interesting weekend.
Saturday Grandma Gloria came over to pick up Jack and spend the day with him. Before he left I snapped a picture of the two boys in their semi-matching outfits:
It was very relaxing. We did grocery shopping and had a fancy lunch at Christopher's, and then I headed over to Elizabeth Arden for a small amount of pampering. All in all, a wonderful day.
Yesterday was not so nice. Joe had a stomach ache in the morning and Jack's stomach was upset all day. He was fussy and unhappy and couldn't get settled. He finally fell asleep around 8:30 or so much to my relief.
Sleeping has overall been better for me this weekend. I went to the doctor on Friday for my allergies and she gave me a nasal antihistamine that will hopefully not harm my milk production. It's also helping me sleep better so even if I'm getting up at night I'm able to go right back to sleep instead of tossing and turning for an extra half hour. It's amazing the difference. I got up twice with Jack last night but I feel great this morning.
We did not yet start cereal. We are still reading and doing research, and we just bought a chair that hooks onto the table. We don't have a high chair yet – we looked at them yesterday but were unimpressed. The way Jack is with sitting I don't know if he will stay in one. We'll see how he does with this little hook-on seat and go from there.
Not much on the agenda today. After Jack's nap (going on two hours now!), I'll get us both ready and maybe we'll have lunch with the grandparents. I have to ship off the birthday gifts to Colorado this week, and I need to get some knitting done. Oh, and we'll be spending some quality time with our friend who is moving to New York soon. That will be a sad day.
He woke up just as I was about to publish this, so here's a better picture of his new sleepwear
