When I think about this past weekend, I’ll I can remember is the amount of snot coming from Brewer’s nose. He started showing signs of a cold Thursday evening and by Friday it was full on snot fest. We had to postpone our trip to Colorado Springs to see his grand-parents and partake in fun at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo :(
Jordan was up with him almost the entire night Friday and I was up till midnight with him last night. Other than that he’s been taking naps like a champ and still eating quite a bit. Colds have to be one of the hardest challenges with little ones. He doesn’t know how to blow his nose and the only thing that’s going to help is getting the mucus out. I think we’ve done every silly dance and sang every silly song you can image to distract him while the other tries to spray saline up his tiny nostrils. It really is like a circus act and I usually end up giggling at Jordan along with Brewer.
Lessons I’ve learned along the way:
Hopefully, the worst is over and we can work on getting back into our weekly routine and regular bed-time.
Jordan has been working long hours lately and decided to take last Thursday and Friday off. Leaving us with a four day weekend to fill with fun activies, which is exactly what we did.
Thursday: We drove into Denver and hung out with the fishes at the Aquarium.
Friday: We toured a possible school option for Brewer, Primrose. If anyone has experiend with their children attending this school, advice would be great:)
Saturday: I took some time for myself and went to the salon, while Brewer and his Daddy played at the park.
Sunday: Brewer took a nap hiatus, we had family photos taken, and then he pooped all over his jammies before bed….awesome:\
What a great productive weekend! Looking forward to next weekend……BREWER’S FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY!
*I’ll be posting more photos and details soon
I’m looking forward to this weekend because we have a great mix of family activity and a holiday party. Saturday we are hopping on the gourmet food truck trend and sampling goodies from the following trucks.
StrEat Chefs Airstream Trailer, Amerciana Gourmet
Comida, a pink former DHL truck with a Mexican Food Menu
the Denver Cupcake Truck
Our neighborhood is so fun to have events like this in our downtown park. After stuffing our faces at the park Jordan and I will be attending his office Christmas party, were I assume there will be more awesome food…yay!
Guess what I’ll be doing Sunday….RUNNING!!
We have a super busy weekend coming up. Brewer meets Santa Saturday afternoon and then off to his first birthday party. Sunday we are picking out our x-mas tree and decorating. We get a live one every year, I love they way they smell.
