Friday Morning

Today is Friday guys, and although many are probably singing it’s praises, I’m kind of dreading it today. I’m sitting here typing away as Amaya sleeps a foot away from me in her rock n’ play sleeper and I just keep glancing over at her in her peaceful slumber. It took a little fussing and fighting this morning but she finally got off mommy’s chest and went down into her sleeper. You see, we’ve been having a rough couple of nights over here. I preface this by saying that I am damn sure other mamas are having it worse but for us, our little lady has been out of sorts which in turn is throwing us off. I have a couple concerns that I want to address with the doctor today, so we will see if we can get some answers and take it from there.

Oh, I forgot to mention….today is immunization day. (insert sad face)
My poor little bean will be getting poked and prodded and I will have to play bad mommy while they stick here. I’m such a sap, but my heart is already hurting for her. I hate to see her scream and cry and that pouty lower lip….well, strike me dead…because it kills me. Her appointment isn’t till 10, but I’ve been up since 5 playing and tweeting on my phone and right now, a quick nap isn’t in my cards so I decided to whip out my big girl camera and show a little of our Friday morning here at the Little Home.

– There is Amaya sleeping away in her rock n’ play sleeper. She’s starting to move around but I’m hoping she’ll drift back to la-la-land so Mommy can eat a quick breakfast and do the dishes. I’d also like to mention that this girl is a swaddle escape artist. No matter what we do, she is always Incredible Hulk’n herself out of the damn swaddle so she can break an arm free. I will be investing in a couple that the girls on Twitter recommended. I’ll try anything to keep her tiny little hiney asleep throughout the night.

– What do you mean your breast milk doesn’t chill on top of your waffles?!? L’ego my Eggo? Umm….more like L’ego my liquid gold. I’ve been pumping like a beast lately to try to build up a supply to send her to daycare with at the end of March. So far I have about 120 oz. put away but we are quickly running out of room amongst all our meats and frozen veggies. If you are a breastfeeding mama and are/or will be returning back to work, how many ounces did you save up? I don’t want to go overboard but homegirl eats like a champ and I want to have enough to send her with until I can figure out my pumping schedule at work. Oh, and let’s not talk about me returning to work yet and having to send her to daycare. I’m already a blubbering mess. I can’t think about not spending my days with her. *cue tears*

– Oh, just last nights dinnner (shrimp alfredo if you must know) and some dishes and bottles that need to be washed before we head out for the day. I don’t know about you but I can’t stand leaving the house with a sink full of dishes. It makes me dread coming home when I know I have housework to do. Okay, who am I kidding…I always have housework to do but I atleast like having a empty sink to come home to.

– Little notes we leave for Daddy on the fridge in the morning, along with our meal plans and sonograms. Our fridge is a catch all of my nephews artwork, vacation magnets, and sharpies to write on A’s milk storage bags.

How’s your Friday morning looking?!?
Hope everyone has a great weekend and I’m sure I’ll be bullshitting with some of you via Twitter during the Oscars on Sunday. I must admit, awards nights are my favorite for social media. I love being a Judge-y McJudgerson with everyone else while we all (well most) watch the same show. Bryan has been warned and has made alternate plans for the evening.
