Feelin Kinda Sunday

I love relaxing Sunday mornings in the fall!  There is cool, fresh air in the apartment so i'm snuggled up with hot coffee & a blanket while watching the NFL on t.v.  Vikings vs. 49ers at the moment, and the Vikings are, winning? Bennett is napping, I tried to nap with him but I felt too hungry to fall asleep.  This little hulk baby inside me is demanding!  I say hulk baby because I have been feeling pretty strong kicks from him or her already... which is almost 5 weeks earlier than I felt ANYTHING with Bennett!!!  

Speaking of Bennett, what's new with him... He has transitioned himself to taking only one nap a day now, which means he goes to bed earlier and gets up earlier (like getting me up before 7 a.m. this morning! ahh!!!).  It was really strange for me to get home from work the other night and not get to play with him because he was already in bed :(  I think that was the first day ever where I went an entire day without getting to interact with him... it was strange, and sad for me.

Erik was home this morning so we had some (rare) family time before he left on a 4-day trip.  I worked the last three days and Erik was home to watch Bennett on those days.  Erik took Bennett to his 15 month well-child check up on Thursday, he weighed in at 26 lbs 12 oz!  And everything checked out good, he's a healthy little toddler.

Bennett and I will be flying to Spokane on Wednesday to meet Erik there for the night.  I have an interview on Thursday for a part-time day shift Long Term Care R.N. position at the Providence St. Joseph's hospital in Chewelah, WA.  I had to go out an buy a maternity interview outfit... i'm getting so big already I don't fit into any of my regular clothes!

Here is a picture from this morning while Bennett was playing/exploring/climbing around in the apartment:

He loves kitchen tools so he's always walking around with something like a spatula or whisk in his hand.  And he is always getting up onto that table so we don't keep anything on there anymore because once he's up there, he throws everything off!  And when that includes a laptop, it's not good!!! lol.

Well I hope everyone is having an enjoyable Sunday, whatever you might be doing!  And tomorrow... GO PACK!!!!!
