I’m a little late with my week in review post because I haven’t been having the best time lately. We’ve had a bunch of stuff going on with Wyatt with some tough behaviors at preschool and at home. Augie has been a bit challenging as well — nursing constantly, sleeping poorly and pooping all over our bed every single morning. They’ve really been keeping me busy, making me fret and testing my patience. And despite all the attention I’ve been giving my kids, I feel like I’m doing a terrible job as a mom. Our house is a total mess. I’m feeling bad about not working or making any money. Blogging is low on my list.
On the plus side, we’re all well fed! I have been managing to shop and cook meals for everyone. That’s good right? Also, when I look at these pictures, things seem pretty good. I mean, look at these awesome little faces (and that fantastic little booty!):
January 29, 2009: Augie is getting to be very good at the tummy time! He happily plays on his belly for up to half an hour and he usually slowly spins around in a circle. He also is rolling over with more frequency, though it isn’t a regular event yet. I’m consistently surprised by how quickly these milestones creep up on us the second time around. I’m sure he’ll be crawling before we know it. Yikes!
January 30, 2009: Augie just completely refuses to sit in his bouncy chair or his swing any more because he doesn’t like reclining. He likes to sit straight up. He’s much happier with the bebe pod these days.
January 31, 2009: I handed the camera to Wyatt to keep him entertained during dinner at Picante. Here his Dad mugs for him while I snarf down some nachos (ahem…totally Weight Watchers approved, of course!).
February 1, 2009: Zach took the boys to the Oakland Zoo and our neighbors from around the corner joined them. The boys hid from the camera by holding their hats in front of their faces. Meanwhile I was at home. Alone. For SIX hours! I haven’t been alone that long since Augie was born. Needless to say, it was AWESOME!
February 2, 2009: My absolute favorite photo of the week and possibly one of my favorites of the year. Wyatt snapped this right before I gave Augie a bath. Look at that squishy booty! Look at those chubby thighs! I love this.
February 3, 2009: Wyatt and I messing around with the camera at breakfast.
