This week’s Oh, Hey Friday! is purely for documentation purposes…This happened in my life the week of August 14th.
ONE | The Girls are Sharing a Room
Mom came over Tuesday specifically to help me get baby clothes out & in order, and then Dad came after work and we make the move. We moved both girls into the bigger bedroom…Tessa in a full bed & and Rue in her twin (their choice) & moved the crib into the smaller bedroom for baby Joanna. We were pulling out onsies & outfits. I don’t know if everyone says this, but I forgot how SMALL babies are!
I’m not sure if we were crazy to do all of this moving and change before the first day of school, but everything went off without a hitch. Girls didn’t talk before bed, and Tessa didn’t fall out of bed. Now, every morning when I wake her up, she is upside down in bed, but still ON the bed…so I’ll take that as a win.
TWO | What in the WORLD do I need for baby #3?
I’ve been cleaning/throwing out around the house and trying to get a few things in order…but 3 years ago was a long time…and a sleep deprived me 3 years ago AND now does not help the situation. I’ve been searching on Pinterest at registry lists and trying to search 2nd time Mama lists and things…then comparing to what I have. I’ve had a few people ask me what I might need, so I decided to make a VERY small registry on Amazon. **I would LOVE some advise on things I may be forgetting! Comment if you think of anything**
THREE | The Girls Start School
I wrote about this on Wednesday. I can get pretty used to this schedule. I was joking with Nathan last night…everyday I ask Ruthie how school went and what did you do… “Good…I don’t know.” Does it REALLY start that early?!! Tessa’s daycare sends a little report card home everyday. And she brings home art projects and fun stuff. I will say, I LOVE this face….
(Photo credit to my mom!) I think Ruthie is really digging this more independent thing. This morning, she told me, “Now, don’t get out of the car when you drop me off.” And I’m pretty sure that her bus rides home are one of the favorite parts of her day. She is EXHAUSTED when she gets home and a little grumpy because we are taking naps away cold turkey (except for Football Fridays), but she seems to be having a blast.
FOUR | Baby Joey Yawns for the Camera
(The white arrow is in the middle of her forehead & the pink arrow is pointing at her open mouth. )
Yesterday was my BOTTOMS UP Apt. aka the Glucose Test where you drink the TERRIBLE orange Gatorade stuff and sit for an hour. We paired it with a Sono so I didn’t have to wait so long. During the measurements, we got a sweet picture of Joanna’s face and she yawned for us. I know some people think these are a big blur, but I thought it was sweet.
FIVE | Football Begins Again!
Tonight begins FOOTBALL again. It’s just the Maroon & White scrimmage, but the girls are READY! They absolutely LOVE Daddy’s football games (even though he’s just volunteering this year) because they get to run around and see all their friends. AND they know that after Football is over, Baby Joanna is coming.
Have a GREAT weekend! Ruthie & I are off for an adventure in Indianapolis! I’ll keep you posted. I’m almost POSITIVE it’s going to be an entertaining weekend! Bah!
