We are almost to Week 35, and this post has been sitting in “draft mode” just waiting for me to finish it.
So, here is goes!
Some really awesome things are happening with Harrison. First, he is starting to really obsess (in a good way!) about cooking. The second we pull the Instant Pot, pan, ingredients, etc, out and onto the counter he is running into the kitchen going “I do it! I cook! I get my stool!”
It’s so much fun to see him grow in passions. Both Dave and I have a huge love of cooking, so I hope that we pass that along to both our kids.
I personally applied to be a pin rep for MerPinz (I’ll create a blog post on all my pins shortly. I am a tiny bit obsessed). Sarah Lou shared my picture on her Instagram feed and I felt like a celebrity! 🙂
Harrison wound up with a weird allergic reaction 3 days in a row! Thankfully some eyedrops and meds fixed him right up. We haven’t had an issue with it again… but on top of his need for an inhaler whenever he gets sick – as well as sometimes when he is not sick – I think we are going to talk to our Pediatrician about getting him allergy tested. I know Harrison will absolutely hate it, but I think it’ll be good as we navigate the school age years that are creeping up on us fast.
I also finished my first crochet project in about 15 years. Harrison loves the little guy (named him Big Dude) and now takes him everywhere. I did a pretty bad job sewing the appendages on, because flash forward a week and I’m already needed to take Big Dude to emergency surgery and sew everything on a LOT tighter and more secure.
Lastly my sweet (and destructive!) Hailey. Her amazing accomplishments this week are pulling herself up and purposefully saying “Dada” when Dave walks by. It’s such a treat to be able to watch all of her little milestones. Sometimes they happen so quickly I miss getting them in her baby book. Thank goodness for cell phones because often I find myself on the weekends using images and video to recall events as I try to keep both of their baby books alive.
