Haircuts and Princesses and GERD, Oh My!

I resisted taking a pregnancy test this morning, you guys. I am trying really hard to just chill out about it until Wednesday, when I am technically due. Luckily there have been lots of things to keep me busy the last few days:


Cutting Eli's hair WAY too short thanks to grabbing the wrong razor guard by mistake. He's still cute though, am I right?



Taking Addy to the Disney Symphony program. She was a little overwhelmed, in case the wide eyed expression doesn't spell that out for you, but she was completely mesmerized the whole time. I'm pretty sure she loved it, despite her firm pronouncement that the Mary Poppins song was "too loud in my ears!"





Addy and her cousin, before the show began. (I also cut Addy's hair Saturday night. I like it long, but she hates having her hair washed and brushed so much that it seems better for everyone to keep it relatively short. You could also read that: I am a lazy mom and don't like to fight with her about keeping her hair tidy every morning.)


We tried to get Addy to pose with Cinderella and Snow White before the show, but she was predictably hesitant about it. We settled for getting a shot NEAR the princesses.



Adelay on her new bicycle this morning. She was more excited about the little bag on the front than anything else!

So yeah, that was my weekend. We also played outside a lot. And to distract myself today, I have plans to make oatmeal walnut chocolate chip cookies. Maybe coffee cake too. I mean, sure, the cookies will inevitably be burnt, but I like eating the dough the best anyways. There's ANOTHER culinary vice you have to give up while pregnant...

Oh and p.s., one of my friends from our church stopped over this morning with her five week old baby, and MAN, that kid is not happy! He has GERD, and the poor baby is just so visibly uncomfortable all the time. It just breaks your heart (and brings up your stress levels!) I feel so bad for him AND his poor parents! Does anyone have advise for them about tricks that worked for you, if your baby had tummy/esophageal problems? Or maybe just a sympathetic comment and assurance that he will get better?

Oh I wish I would have known about this - Harper would have loved it! Although it probably would've been too long a drive. . . Looks like you had a great time.

Good job with the hair - I always threaten Harper with short hair when she's not cooperating with the brushing, etc.

Love the new haircuts! Amazing how much older Eli looks with shorter hair. Why is that???

Mommy Daisy said...

Sounds like a great weekend. I really like the new haircuts. They both look older now.

Man, nobody wants to talk about GERD but me? At that age I'd go with gripe water.

I'm not sure what age you can start giving them this stuff, but we give Charlie Slippery Elm Bark Powder every day. Even if the kids do have reflux, this helps keep them from hurting from it. The kid will literally puke all over something and just keep trucking. It's awesome!
