Lachlan’s first time on a boat was on Saturday. The weather was a toasty 90 degrees….with him sporting his sunhat and life vest, we ventured out on a boat with friends. It couldn’t have been a more perfect day for it! He was happy until the boat took off……we thought it would get better…not so. He screamed the entire time….with tears streaming down his face. We turned around, but it felt like he was screaming forever and he just exhausted himself. He fell asleep as soon as K walked off the boat with him. We figure he must have gotten ‘seasick’. Karli keeps joking that he will never be able to go into the Coast Guard or the Navy. Ha! I’m sure he’ll outgrow it, but it was disappointing that he didn’t enjoy it…neither did we! Here is K with the boy (pre-boat ride):
So, our little man doesn’t do boats. But, lately he has been doing sleep!! The past 3 nights he has slept through the night!! (Technically defined as more than a 6 hour stretch of sleep). He is usually sleeping from about 8:30pm-3:30am. He gets up to eat once and then goes back down for about an hour and a half or two hours, and then is up for the day. I feel like a new woman having a 5 hour stretch of sleep. You really realize how tired you truly were!! I am not working, but I view being a stay-at-home mom as full-time job! I actually don’t stay at home at all! I go into work with K every day. Lachlan isn’t the type of kid that likes to stay in one place. He isn’t really content “hanging out” at home all day. He’s not particularly fond of his car seat….so we don’t drive many places with him. We have the jumperoo and playmat up at work…and Lachlan loves being able to see his Mama every day. We go out to lunch together daily too. I feel so lucky and blessed to be able to spend my days with the two people I love most in this world and so happy that I never miss a moment with my son. K and I were talking in the car yesterday about our life together….and how truly deep-down happy we both are…I so love my little family. Totally random final note: We were browsing the stores over the weekend and saw some digital pregnancy tests that were an unbelievable deal….guess who bought a bunch!? We’re officially crazy. Not getting back on the TTC train quite yet….but it may be late this year. We shall see!
