Sunday Coffee

Whoa, where have I been?! Well, I took a little hiatus I guess you could say from the blog world. Between work things, family fun, summer fun etc. It was just something I decided to break from. But I’m back! So with that….

**Two of our friends (different couples) both welcomed babies into their lives this weekend! One couple had a little girl and one had a little boy. In celebration Grayson has decided to revert to newborn sleeping habits….one hour naps, getting up at the a$$ crack of dawn aka 4:55. This kid is going through some sort of WEIRD sleep regression. I’ve read that it can happen around 18 months, and that it’s one of the worst ones! AWESOME.

**But seriously, congrats to our friends! You are all in for one awesome journey and I can’t wait to meet the newest members of your families!

**Did you know August is actually my least favorite month of the year?? I know, crazy! Especially because that is the month my husband celebrates his birthday! Nothing against August 20th (we will let that day slide in the month). I don’t know if it’s because I’m ready for Fall to begin, the fact that it’s always 5 freaking weeks, or that the State Fair (not a fan) happens….I just don’t like August.

**I couldn’t wait any longer, I had to break out some Fall decorations. I found my Fall wreath and put that up and started lightening all my Fall candles! Now, if it were 20 degrees cooler…..

**Curt and I have been binge watching Netflix shows, currently we are watching Dawson’s Creek. I watched the show when it aired and loved it. But now….I think every scene should have “Cry me a River” by Justin Timberlake in the background. These kids are SO DRAMATIC!!! Seriously, did I relate to them in high school!? I currently have a love/hate relationship with the show now….PS. I’m Team Pacey!

Because of my long hiatus I thought I owed you a photo….Enjoy this one of Grayson enjoying some local sweet corn. Probably the last of the season for us! 🙂 I’m ready for all things pumpkin!

What NOT to say….

I love The Huffington Post, it’s just an online newspaper where it shares stories from around the web. But I’m always finding interesting articles. The latest one that caught my attention was this one, titled “9 Things Never to Say to the Parents of a Newborn.

I feel like EVERYONE I know is pregnant or just had a baby, so I THINK this would relate to A LOT of you, or will relate to you soon. Oh and congrats to all of my friends that are preggo or just had a little one, I love talking to you about your experience and it makes me want to be pregnant again!!! Did my husband just pass out?? HAHAHA!! Not an announcement peeps….and see #8 on the list of the article. 😉

Seriously though, I felt like this list was very comprehensive. I think I may have gotten every statement/question on that list except the last one: “Is having a baby worth all you gave up for it?” If anyone EVER had the gall to ask me that I might no wait I would punch them in the face.

I’d like to add a few more to this list:

1. Aren’t you bored on maternity leave? I mean don’t you just have all this extra time since he sleeps all the time?

2. Do you nap when the baby naps? I wish I could do that during my day.

Those are the only other two I can really think of that I also got in addition to most of those on the list. But really those were few and far between. Mostly, people were respectful and just wanted to know when we were ready for visitors.

But in the future if you aren’t sure what to say to parents with a newborn this list is one you might want to study before saying anything.

And in answer to the #1 question you are all thinking now about us…aka #8 on the list…the answer is hopefully in a couple of years…vague enough for you all. 😉

And now because this post is full of newborn talk here are some pictures of my newborn….almost 13 months ago.
