So Brian has been gone since tuesday and we've had a fairly eventful week!
Tuesday: We brought daddy and Brad to the airport at 7:30am - nothing too eventful this day. We went over to Fionas in the late afternoon where I attempted to put Keiran in her kiddie pool. Bad idea. Mad baby. That night he woke up 4 times. I was tired.
Wednesday: We went to the zoo in the morning with Lori and her girls, Kate and her kids and her daycare kids and Deb with Drake. Busy!!! Keiran was tired and cranky after about ten minutes in the stroller so into the back carrier he went (pics are a few posts down) and he fell asleep and had a decent nap and woke up happy and hungry. Went home, he napped some more and then we played for awhile and then it was bath and bedtime. Somehow once he was in bed, he managed an amazing acrobatic feat and launched himself out of his crib and landed flat on his back. He was scared and had the wind knocked out of him but otherwise ok. This was our hint to finally lower the crib. Too bad Daddy is gone for another two weeks! Smart Mommy just decided to zip up the cat tent so little acrobat monkey baby can't get out again. I'm not messing with that crib on my own!!!
Thursday: We went to Costco in the morning with Lori where she discovered a TICK on Keirans wrist. Blech. That thing was already in his skin. She pulled it off and he barely noticed, thank goodness. All was well after that. Later that day, Lori brought her girls over for supper and we had Costco pizza (mmmm)
Friday: Went into Keirans room when he woke up to find him SITTING in his crib. This is new! He has never before tried to get into a sitting position from lying down. What a smart baby! He was happy that morning but decided he HAD to have a nap 15 minutes before we were supposed to go to the MFRC play group. So...we were over an hour late for play group but that's fine. Went grocery shopping in the afternoon and then he napped and I watched the dark clouds to the north while baking chocolate chip banana bread (I ate half and froze half for Daddy). Apparently there were tornado touchdowns and a huge downpour - but not in St. James! Phew. Don't need to deal with more water in the basement.
Saturday: Lazy day!!! We went to the mall in the morning but Keiran got cranky so we left. Then we both slept for 3 hours in the afternoon! Evening was uneventful.
Sunday: So far we've walked to Dollarama where I picked up a few things for the Canada Day BBQ and we sat in the backyard and I partly filled the new swimming pool. Keiran is currently napping in a poo filled diaper. There was no way I was changing that thing before he had the nap! I only know it's poo filled because I can smell it when I go into the room to check on him. Yuck.
And so that's the first week without Daddy. Only 10 days to go!
