I love this photo, I feel like it is an accurate representation of how my life feels right now.. crazy! The apartment is slowly being taken over by baby toys, and he isn't even "doing" anything yet! I got the Skip Hop play mat for the floor in the living room to make a softer area to lie down with him and let him try to crawl or roll around. The dogs love it. :) We also got a doorway jumper since Smoosh is OBSESSED with standing up and "jumping". Only problem is that the only doorway in our apartment that is low enough (we have super high ceilings) is in the bathroom- the door to the laundry/boiler room. This is also where the dogs' pee pee pad is, so it is a little weird. Hmm. Oh well, it is still great. I think I will bring it with us to my parent's for Christmas. 3 weeks of happy jumping in lots of doorways there!
I am SO excited, tomorrow we hit the open highway (well, there will probably be quite a bit of traffic) for Thanksgiving in Tennessee. I am a little wary about the 12 hour drive and how I am going to feed him every 2 hours, but I have a plan. I am going to try to pump IN the car, and sit in the back seat and feed him the bottle. I hope he takes it because if we have to stop every 2 hours for 20 minutes we won't make in there by Thursday. Not to mention, we are bringing the dogs. Throw that into the mix and we have a very crazy road trip planned. Oh well, we will get there eventually. :)
Something else just dawned on me that I am not very happy about. I am eventually going to get my period again, and from what I have heard, it is going to be worse than ever. It has been 10 weeks and I think my days are numbered. Yesterday I noticed a pimple on my chin. THEN I proceeded to CLEAN the house like I haven't cleaned since my nesting-shoe-closet organization day. I actually scrubbed the stove, inside and out! I have never done that before. :| I have also been acting a little bit strange, thrashing around and being clumsy... :( Sigh.
