So, there’s this saying we have with Avery… he really gets involved in what he’s doing and doesn’t pay attention to anyone or what they are saying to him, so my mom would say “Avery’s busy busy”… and now when Avery is playing alone – which he does more of now as he gains independence and doesn’t need me by him 24/7 – I can hear him saying ‘Busy Busy’… so cute!
I am very relieved it’s Friday. This week has been so long. We had lots going on every day…
Saturday – We watched cartoons in bed together and played around the house before going grocery shopping.
Avery was such a good kiddo at the store, and was rewarded with strawberries! He loves them. After Avery’s nap, we did laundry, and in between switching loads, we played at the park and outside with chalk
It was gorgeous out – too warm for jackets!
6.1 Miles in 1 hours 58 seconds. Oh yeah! More nice weather.. didn’t need gloves or earmuffs.
And how he says marshmallows is too darn cute…
After Avery went to sleep, I hunkered down for my last night of studying. I have been taking an hour every night after Avery goes to sleep to study for our first exam in the plumbing class I’m taking.
I started to get a headache before bed and thought it was just from stress or dehydration from running.
Tuesday – Test day. Headache was worse, but Tylenol helped. Luckily, the test didn’t take long so I was home by 5:30 and had lots of time to play with Avery. We built a new track for his trains and tried the potty some more…(this picture will come back out when he starts dating)
By the time I put Avery to bed, I was miserable. Freezing, headache, ugh.
Wednesday – I had to spend the morning at court, but it went much quicker than anticipated, so I was back at work by 11. Brought Avery to visit with his Dad, worked some more. Feeling a little better, but maybe that’s just the Tylenol talking. I let Avery stay up half an hour later than usual because I hadn’t seen him all day and he’s been waking up a little before six most mornings, so we played before hopping into bed.
Avery knows so many colors now – blue, red, yellow, green, black, and orange. He put those pegs in himself – matching the colors!
Thursday – I had my yearly review at work – it went well and it feels good to put down goals for the upcoming year. I ran an easy 2 1/2 miles at lunch – but as it turned out, I ran 9:30 miles, eek. Guess I’m getting faster and didn’t notice. I’m feeling better and well enough to run the 10K on Saturday. When we got home from school and work, Avery was in a great mood. We played Legos and trains and he helped me ‘make’ dinner.
He also occupied half our suitcase while I packed for Vermont. He likes to sit in it… still. Even though he is getting much too big for it! We had a quick video chat with MiMi before bed, while we brushed our teeth…
We read ‘just one more book’ before bed. After Avery was asleep, I did a clean sweep of the house and half packed.
It’s finally Friday and I’m ready for a break. We’re headed to Vermont for the weekend for some relaxing and fun! (Oh and a 10K race – eek!!!)
