You know how if you’re on Bloglovin’ they send you an update every weekend with any new followers or if you’ve lost followers? I’ve lost quite a few of what few I did have — I’m assuming it’s due to all the baby stuff.
I wish I could say that I’m offended by it, but I’m not. I don’t really feel the need to apologize for talking about my kid on here, so I’m not going to. He’s pretty much the coolest thing to ever happen to me, and I’ve never been one to “care” about likes, followers, etc. This blog is to document my life — I mean, look all the way back to 2008 — I didn’t even know how to put pictures in my posts, add links, etc. I love all the real connections I’ve made with fellow bloggers, and those are the ones that matter.
So without further ado, I’m going to show you more pictures of my kid and our weekend.
It was pretty low-key — my dad and step-mom came in from Kansas to meet the little man. They even offered to watch him for a few hours so B and I could sneak out and have our first “date” night. We went to Good People for a beer, and then came home. Shout out to Good People for giving us our first beer out on the house. You people rock fo’ sho. I’m also not quite sure if I’m ready to be away from him — I know that he’s fine, but sometimes I really like just staring at that face.
I’ve also given him his first nickname: Pickle. I’m not quite sure, but I called him that one day, and it seems to have stuck. My sis sent him a onesie with a giant pickle on it. I can’t wait to have him wear it (duh for a pic when I do happen to get have it on him).
Everything’s been going ok — so far. He’s had a few bouts of being awake and fussy from about 2-6 in the morning, and I think we’ve gotten overly dependent on his Rock N Play that pretty much vibrates him to sleep — so we’ve been trying to “wean” him off of needing the vibrations for nap time. So far it’s been working out terribly. Only two weeks in, it still hurts me to see him get so upset.
Here’s to hoping that he finally gets some good sleep tonight!!
