After such a sporadic sleep schedule last night I went back to bed with Carter during his morning nap and slept from 7:30-9:00. When we got up we chatted and ate breakfast. My grandparents walk 3-4 miles every morning and were ready to go. Ty walked with them and I ran 4 miles and then met up with them to walk the rest of the way back with them. It felt good to run without the stroller. I felt fast!
|Ready for their walk, grandma pushed the stroller on the way out and Ty pushed it on the way back.|
We played, rolling the ball across the floor with Carter sitting propped up with one of us. He loved it! Sometimes he would push or grab the ball, other times he would happen to kick his legs at the perfect time to send the ball back toward the person opposite him. I think it is his new favorite toy!
Carter enjoyed playing on the floor with everyone and reading a book with his great-grandma. He even got to show off his medal and stuffed animal from the summer reading program. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable day.
|They're both so cute!|
While we were at dinner my parents and grandparents got Carter ready for bed following his normal routine. He got a bath and my grandma gave him a bottle. It was only the 2nd time I've ever missed nursing him that last time before bed. I have acknowledged that I have a bit of separation anxiety and I'm working on it, one little step at a time. It's especially hard being a working mom because when I do get to be with him, I don't want to miss a thing.
