Life Lately from Our Phones
Finally a normal Sunday at home! I've been sitting on the couch for like 30 minutes while Jonah sleeps and Jax and McKay play in the garage. It's been a good week. Full of Christmas business and getting our routine back on track after Thanksgiving in Boise. I'm feeling good. I got all the Christmas cards done this week. I have never gotten them done this early. I'm trying to get everything done for the holidays in the next week- then I can sit my butt on the couch and enjoy my favorite time of the year. Fall came and went fast. We would drive in the car past all the trees and Jax would said "Woww mom dat's weawy beautiful." Now he is noticing the trees all bare with no leaves. Ahhh! I'm blogging about trees. ANYWAYS. We stopped nursing- Jones and I. It's been rougher on me than I thought. Jonah had a really hard time at first. Part of me was so sad that it was going to be much harder for him than it was for Jax, but the other part of me was just totally done. Done nursing constantly throughout the day. I felt like it would never taper off. But slowly I started to deny him and he just kind of got used to it- really fast! I didn't tell myself when I was going to stop (P.S. I don't know how anyone could do that...so depressing!). But I remember rocking him to sleep when he was really upset, and sitting against the wall next to his crib and nursing him. That was the last time. I wish I would have thought about it more. Part of me is glad I didn't though, because it would have made it so sad.
McKay is starting to study for the GMAT. I'm trying to be super supportive but it's been so boring at night. He wakes up at 5 to study so he goes to bed extra early and I am just bored. Sometimes he tries to stay up with me, but he just ends up falling asleep. We went on a date Friday and laughed a lot. We sat at our table at PF Changs (we justified that because we literally never go on dates) and we pointed people out and made up stories about them and what they were talking about to their dates. Then we pulled out our phones and looked at pictures and videos of our kids from the week. I don't know why, but lately I've felt those dating butterflies again, a lot. But I've felt like that ever since we went to the skate deck. So weird. I think sometimes you just have to be reminded that you can be really really fun together. I think Jonah likes McKay more than he likes me now. Maybe it's because I stopped nursing him. But he totally dives for him after work. The boys and I have been fighting over McKay lately. We only get a couple hours with him before he falls asleep on us at night. It's been really really happy in our home. We are done with the projects for now. It feels good. Only one of our bathrooms has a working sink...but we are DONE. It feels good to take a break. I'm just content. This doesn't happen very often, so I'm going to enjoy it as longgggg as possible.
