Weekend Warrior(ess)

I just want to give myself a public pat on the back for surviving a weekend of solo Mothering. The Hubs is in the thick of the restaurant opening, so he's been up and out early and hasn't gotten home until well after 10PM.  Needless to say, I've missed having someone to pass the baby off to after a long day of playing peek-a-boo, and I'm pretty sure Noah missed the far more exciting/potentially dangerous activities he enjoys when Daddy is home.

Friday we went and visited Chris at work. One of the nice things about having a spouse in the restaurant biz is that you get to be a guinea pig when they are training the staff.  Noah loved seeing all the activity and hanging out with the folks Chris works with, and I enjoyed eating pizza (gluten-free!) and letting other people hold my child. 

Saturday the Grandparents came for a visit, specifically so I could take advantage of Grandpa Jim's mad handyman skillz to hang Noah's new swing.  He LOVES it so much and I'm pretty sure he's spent at least five hours in the thing since Saturday. 

Yesterday we went to a baby shower for my friend who's expecting a girl in September.  I had a little too much fun picking out pink items from her registry (pink sparkles bathtub?  Um, hells to the yes) and cooing over all the adorable, yet highly impractical, gifts she received.

I also enjoyed the fact that her sweetheart held Noah for the entire party and they just chilled together, like cool dudes.  I can't wait to meet their little girl and hook Noah up with her because she's sure to be a hottie.
