A Very Productive Day

We hit the ground running this morning! I've not had this much ambition since, well, I don't really remember. Ari Bean woke up at 7 this morning, earlier than usual so I hopped out of bed to let Matt sleep in and brought Ari downstairs. He cried and cried for the longest time, nothing I was doing was working so I grabbed the baby tylenol and his bottle to put him back to sleep but it was too late, Matt was coming down the stairs. I think Ari missed him or something because as soon as we were all there together he was totally fine. We played in his room for a while before he took a nap.

While he was napping Matt made us breakfast. I wasn't super hungry and actually took a little nap myself. Ari woke up while I was asleep and he and daddy played and played until Ari just fell right over in his play cage and needed another nap. During that nap Matt and I painted the last wall in the family room and hung the curtains on the other window. Ari woke up cranky again so we decided to head out for a haircut for Matt. The fresh air did us all some good I think.

Whew, long day so far huh. Once we came home I baked some cookies for us to eat while we decorated our tree! Ari was not in the mood to decorate today, he just wanted to be held so he sat on Matt's lap while I hung the ornaments. The tree came out gorgeous though, and we still got to light the fireplace and eat our cookies!










We're going to veg the rest of the evening, tomorrow we have some serious house cleaning to do before my brother gets here on Monday. Hope your Saturday was as satisfying as ours!! Happy weekend ;)
