Sunday Coffee

**Did anyone else’s one year old go through a sleep regression…or is it just mine? Grayson has been getting up at 5:15 every.single.morning the past couple of days. I try very hard not to get him out until 615 under the naive hope that he will actually go back to sleep, but he usually just plays and talks. I also think he has a bad cold so that isn’t helping. Let’s hope this doesn’t last much longer because the poor kid doesn’t get a nap at daycare until close to noon…that’s a LONG morning!

**We are getting our fence this week!! Awhile back I talked about if we should do it ourselves or not…we bit the bullet and are having it paid to be done. It helps that both our neighbors on our sides have a fence, one is a chain and one is privacy. So we will keep those and just add privacy to the back and front sides….so one side will be chain link and the rest privacy. That’s ok though…it gets us to our goal which is a fence in yard….now time for landscaping….is Yard Crashers in the area filming?? 🙂

**Last year at this time I was on maternity leave….my oh my time sure does seem to fly.

**We introduced peanut butter to Grayson for the first time this weekend. I was NERVOUS! I’m not sure why…maybe because it seems I read or hear about allergies and kids ALL.THE.TIME. When I asked our doc. about it he said go for it that there is not “rule” anymore with peanuts, wheat, eggs etc. But he did recommend waiting until after one. He said just put a little on some Cheerios or something and the first allergic reaction would be hives. Well today is day 2 and no reaction just yet. Knock on wood. I feel for kids with allergies and I’m praying we don’t have to worry about that…so far so good. His daycare is a peanut and tree nut free facility which is fine with me. When did you first try an allergy food with your little one? How did you introduce it and how did it go?

**Speaking of introducing high allergy foods…when introducing PB to Gray I first rubbed some peanut butter on his leg! My husband looked at me like I was crazy! But I read somewhere that he could have a reaction on his leg instead of ingesting it and finding out. I don’t think I waited long enough for something if anything to show up on his leg before giving him some…am I crazy? No, I don’t think so….but don’t ask my husband.

**I still haven’t seen Frozen but I play the “Let it Go” song over and over on YouTube. Grayson also seems to enjoy it. 😉

**Curt is almost done with our mini mud room! I can’t wait to show you all the finished project! Next up….our kitchen/front room wasted space area!! We ordered floor last week! WOOHOO!!

Well, I’m off to start the day while the little one sleeps…Grayson is now at an age where there isn’t much I can get done when he is awake…he is into EVERYTHING! So whatever you do and wherever you go enjoy your day friends!
