It's been a relatively low key weekend, but I guess that's how it is with a newborn these days. Matt, Charlie, Wally and I are settling into our new family life. Poor Wally has been exhausted. With Charlie and I around during the days, it's really interfering with his naps.
Charlie and I met Ali and Wyatt for lunch on Friday which was a great way to start the weekend. Then Charlie and I decided to nap in the afternoon. I haven't really napped much during the days since Charlie was born, which is kind of crazy that I don't take advantage of that time but I seem to have plenty of laundry, cleaning, and other items to take care of during his naps. Anyways, Friday I decided that since he was tired, I would lay down and watch some TV and relax. Two hours later, we both woke up. Friday evening, Matt and I enjoyed a delicious dinner that our friend, Amy made for us. Thanks Amy!
Charlie had a really good day on Saturday. He was awake and alert all day. He took a few 30 minute naps but no long ones. In the afternoon, we enjoyed a cook-out at the Hamrick's house. I realized on our way there that I had forgotten our camera. Now, if we had forgotten the pacifier, we would have turned around for sure, but we decided to keep on going. Luckily, our friend Michele took a few pictures of the sweet babies/toddlers. (It's really a shame that I didn't take a picture of Charlie in his outfit yesterday because he looked super cute if I do say so myself. These days, he's grown so fast that I'm not sure how much longer he is going to be his 0-3 month clothes.)
Today, Charlie has been sleepy. That's what happens when you spend the day and night awake! Ugh!! I thought he would sleep so good and he did go to sleep and sleep for the first 3.5 hours but then he stirred the rest of the night. Matt and I were both up and down with him the rest of the night. Matt mowed the lawn in the heat and I have done a little cleaning inside. We are all resting this afternoon.
