Home again home again
We had a great weekend visiting Allie in Nashville! O did great in the car and slept mostly ok at the apartment. You know, except for that time he was up for an hour and a half in the middle of the night. Heh. We got her bedroom wall painted (we found the perfect color in the "oops" paint and got it for $5!!), shopped for and installed curtain rods and curtains, ate yummy food from the Cheesecake Factory, ate delicious build-your-own frozen yogurt sundaes, and really just had a great time hanging out together! I wish it was a little closer so we could visit more often.
Orion has actually been sleeping a lot better the last week or so. He's only been waking up to eat once a night and has been sleeping til at least 7 and as late as 7:45 daily. Napping well too. Go O! He's been army-crawling all over the place really fast, and yesterday he finally got himself up on his knees a few times. It's all I can do to keep him away from power cords and chokeable objects I didn't know we had. Did you know those springy door stops have a tip that comes off? Yeah.
Our carpet is finally clean!! The guy came yesterday and cleaned it and we got most of our furniture moved back into place last night. We're very happy about that! It's good timing too since Orion is spending so much time on the floor.
We're going to a memorial service tonight for Rachel's boyfriend Stephen's mom who died suddenly last week. It's from 7-9 so I'm really hoping Orion is able to behave well even though it's around his bedtime.
I should fold laundry while Orion is napping, so goodbye for now!
