Week: This week has had its ups and downs. Lawson had lost a bit of weight over the past couple of months. We’ve been working hard to make sure he eats enough and I thought for sure he’d gained it back only to find out he’d actually only gained 1 oz in the past 2 weeks. Luckily his pediatrician doesn’t think there’s anything seriously wrong with him. We’re not too worried, but are trying to supplement his diet with formula. Wish us luck! And if you have any tips on transitioning from nursing to a bottle, please send them my way. On the plus side, my little luv turned 8 months old on Wednesday. How has it gone so fast?! (Update: It took a full day, but Lawson’s doing great with drinking from a cup!)
Weekend: Not sure how it happened but we have a relatively free weekend ahead of us! I’m excited to hang out, relax and prep for the holidays and a little get together we’re hosting next Friday. I’m pretty certain I’ll be playing holiday tunes on repeat. I bought Michael Buble’s holiday album this week and have been rotating between it and A Very She & Him Christmas. I may even brave the mall with some returns on Saturday morning. Am I crazy?!
