|Cutest ever ever- I want two boys!|
Friday, May 17, 2013
We are so busy these days! I found the perfect family to nanny for at care.com. They have a 3 year old girl and a 19 month old boy. I'm getting paid to let Rivvy play with his new friends! It's so nice to finally have a little bit of money and to be able to do anything without stressing over the cost. We nanny 3 days a week for about 5 hours each day. It's been a big adjustment for Riv- he's already had a few extra runny noses and bumps and bruises, but I guess that comes with being around other kids. The nap situation at their place is really a struggle. I feel like this kid never sleeps. It's thrown us all into a big funk and it's hard to get anything done when you feel like a zombie all the time. I have definitely neglected some family, friends, and especially myself. We are working on getting into a good routine groove though. Anyway! This family is so sweet. The little girl just loves Rivers. He will just walk up and hug her, it's too adorable. And the little boy is so smart! His vocabulary is incredible. I feel like being around them is pushing Riv a little more to speak. It's definitely good for him developmentally to be around these kids. It's so funny to see them all play. Rivers has been a farmer, a mailman, a prince, a dad, a husband, a honey, a sweetie, a baby, a pony racer, and a train conductor. The games the little girl comes up with are too cute! So here is part one of where we've been/ my excuse for being a lazy blogger. We are sure keeping ourselves busy!

Rivers is an awful sleeper. Like terrible. I haven't slept more than 4 hours in his whole lifetime. You have to wrestle this kid to sleep. He pulls my hair, pinches me, kicks Seth, rolls around, does total 180's as he's laying down, it's completely nuts. He literally has ripped out handfuls of my hair :( it's terrible. Last night in desperation I yelled at Seth (sorry!) for a lovey from Riv's room. He instantly smiled and snuggled the crap out of it! It totally saved my poor hair!! I still need to get him into his own crib but for the meantime I will take any help I can get when it comes to sleep. We're slowly working it out! Plus look how cute he is as he snuggles his puppy :)

So the other day I hear Rivers laughing in my bedroom and walk in to see him sitting on the bed. He was so proud! Haha my little climber. Now all he wants to do is stand on the coffee table, sit on the couch, give me a heart attack.. He's nuts! I'm so proud of him though! He is a pro at getting off of the bed too! Yay for my little mountain climber!

I have so much fun dressing this boy! I've been so busy lately working as a nanny, waitress, kids clothing seller, and newly a consultant for a cloth diaper company! It's fun to keep busy And have a full schedule all the time. The clothes selling has been my favorite new hobby. I made enough in my first month to pay my car payment and actually have some play money! All of it goes Rivvy anyway lol. We love to go thrifting and any profit we can make of it is just awesome . It is so tiring being a mommy of a restless boy and still trying to keep a life for myself as well. Wouldn't change it for the world though! We have so much fun everyday!

I work on Thursday nights and got stuck there pretty late yesterday. We are currently working on putting Rivers on a better sleep schedule so Seth had to put him down my himself yesterday for the first time. He said it was a struggle but he did it!! Riv fell asleep without nursing for the first time! He is usually such an awful sleeper but he was really knocked out and only woke up once- which trust me is really good for this kid! Anyway this morning when he woke up I couldn't stop laughing. My baby has mittens as socks. Hahahahahhahahaha. Seriously I am cracking up! You rule, Sethy! Our baby looks like he has an extra toe to swing from trees :) haha ohhh, daaaaaddd.
