Various Things Kind of Day

Today has been a bit odd to me. First, I woke up to a lot of rain. The rain made for some great, cozy cuddles with Chris. It was so pleasant and I really didn't want him going to work today. Why can't we have cuddles like that on a weekend when we can sleep in...or at least sleep in as long as Caleb lets us? The outdoors was cold when just yesterday we were wearing short sleeve t-shirts. What in the world?!

Caleb had his 6 month appointment this morning. It was at 9 am which is usually his morning nap time. I knew that may not turn out so well. He did great and he was all smiles and laughs. He weighs 15 pounds and 11 ounces and he is 26 and 3/4 inches long. The doctor said he is more long than chunky. I guess that explains why people always think he is so "tiny." We saw a baby girl who is 4 months old and already weighs 19.5 pounds. OH MY GOODNESS! She was a chunk. Caleb is doing just fine and he is very healthy. The next part was the shots. While we waited for the nurse to come back, Caleb actually fell asleep in my arms and he continued to sleep on the examining table while the nurse prepared the shots. Caleb had to wake up for the Rotavirus vaccine because it is given orally and then you know what the pricks in his little thighs did to him. I HATE SHOTS! Thankfully, he doesn't have anymore routine shots till he is one year old. Wait...I opted for Caleb to get the flu shot and that requires a booster next month. Okay, one booster shot next month and then none till 12 months. Yeah! The next routine checkup is at 9 months.

We went to the grocery store to pick up some random things I needed and headed home. It rained and rained. We ate lunch and now Caleb is zonking in his crib. And would you know it, it is sunny as can be right now. It is still cold, though. For my more northern readers, I live right outside of Savannah, GA. So, low 60's is still coolish to my Southern Self. It is even going to be in the thirties tonight. Brrrr! I've been working on various things of paperwork for Chris during Caleb's zonking time. I've worked my way down and the desk looks ten times better. Yeah! I even talked to my Dad while doing the credit card. I am still behind on some stuff but I feel good because I am slowly putting habits in place that will allow for a cleaner, more hospitable, and less stressful house.

Tonight, I am going to try to start rowing at night. I used to row in the morning around 9 to coincide with Caleb's nap. Well, being that Caleb's morning nap is the short one and he usually took it in his swing (I know, I know...the afternoon nap is always in his crib, though) I've been feeling unsure about rowing and taking my shower. He was unattended and that's not good. So, the plan is to eat dinner with Chris and then he take Caleb while I row and shower. I'll be moving my shower to the evening which is new to me because I've always been a morning shower person. It is part of my waking up routine. We'll see how this goes. I've been slack in the rowing realm and hopefully, tonight will end that. Yeah!! Go me!! One goal and resolution at a time.

Also, I want to say thank you for all the wonderful advice and support I've received the past week. I truly appreciate. Thanks Ladies!
