Yes friends, it’s just me and Grace this weekend. Georgia is on a work trip and believe it or not, this is the first time that it’s been just me and the babe – like ever. I will admit that I was a bit nervous on Thursday knowing that my wife was leaving me to parent on my own. You see, as mamas to a near toddler, we’ve fallen into a pretty comfy routine with Grace. There are things that I typically do and other things that are G’s department. One thing that Georgia does every night is put Grace to bed. I give her kisses and lay with them in our room for a bit but she takes it from there. I actually tried putting Grace to bed last week because G was sick and it did not go well… She was climbing all over the bed while looking at the door crying for mommy. Georgia eventually had to step in. I think the bedtime routine is what made me the most nervous.
Thankfully, I had nothing to worry about! Last night around 8pm I warmed Gracie’s bottle before lying down with her and she was out in no time. She went on to sleep 11 hours straight. Thank you for taking it easy on me, baby girl!
Aside from that we’ve kept pretty busy…
Grace helped me with a little laundry and by “helped” I mean unfold everything I folded. ;)
The babe made a new discovery. She can now open the bins in the coffee table and has set her sights on climbing into them. I’m hoping she’ll forget she found our secret toy boxes because the last thing we need is for one of those heavy lids to fall on her head or smash a finger!
After Grace went to bed I got my craft on! There are just a few small projects left to finish before next weekend, one of which is Gracie’s party banners. I plan to post a DIY tutorial on her banners after the party but here’s a little preview of the one I completed yesterday. :)
I also had time to finish the birthday girl’s monthly picture collage. Thank goodness for early bedtimes and Dateline on Friday nights. If I could watch murder mysteries and craft every night, I would be one happy girl!
And that bring us to today. Gracie’s friend Sophia is having her first birthday party this afternoon so we need to get ready. Happy Saturday!
