Jonah's been doing much better with his sleeping lately. He's only been waking up once to eat, eating four to six ounces in about thirty minutes, and then going right back to sleep. So the last few nights we've only had to be up with him about forty minutes total. So I would be getting some good sleep if I wasn't staying up to wash dishes, mix milk, fold laundry, blog and read blogs.
Today was a great day. Jonah had to get his second flu shot today, but the nurse called this morning to say that if we'd let him know when we were in the parking lot, he'd come out and do it at the car. They've been having many flu cases come in, and he didn't want Jonah to have to come in to all of that. I thought that was so nice. Anyway, we got there, and it took him a while to come out, so I put Jonah in his umbrella stroller and let him look around and watch the cars go by. He was so happy, and I LOVED the time outside. It was absolutely beautiful here today. Maybe a high of 80 with the greatest breeze. I wouldn't minded if it had taken him an hour to get out there. :) Jonah did get gaggy when I put him the car seat to leave the house, but never puked. He didn't gush all day!!! Woohoo!
After the doctor, we went to the grocery store to pick up our groceries. That's right... to pick them up. There is one (only one) Harris Teeter in Winston that will let you shop online and do pick up. They charge a 4.99 fee for doing your shopping for you, but then you just pull up, buzz them, and they bring your groceries right out to the car. Totally worth every dime. I plan my meals for two weeks and do a big grocery trip, so I was having to leave Jonah with Matt and spend two hours at the grocery store on a Saturday (when maybe I could have been napping???). Gross. And since it's so hard to get out with Jonah, it just makes more sense to do the pick-up service. I went and got them today because Matt's mom was with me, and Jonah was asleep, but typically I'll probably do the ordering over the weekend and have Matt pick them up when he gets off work on Monday. The grocery store that does it is really close to his work. Suh-weet.
After that we stopped by McDonald's and got hot fudge sundaes.
And if all that wasn't great, Jonah fell asleep in the car at 3:00, stayed asleep when I got him out of the car seat once we got home, let me put him in bed, and slept until 6:00. And he STILL went down at 9:00. Before today, I can't remember the last time he took a decent nap... maybe lasagna day.
Okay, it's 9:28... only 17 minutes to get ready, say my prayers, and get to sleep. I don't know that I can
Yikes! It's 9:31 now. I'm not proofreading this post, so please ignore any mistakes.
