Weekly Reads 09.11.12

Another week done. We celebrated my birthday on Tuesday, didn’t do much but hubby did get me a pedicure that I can’t wait to use, he’s been after me for a while to do something for myself but I have a difficult time doing it! It will be nice. We’re having friends over on the weekend for cake and games. My kind of low-key fun.

I was finally successful in getting baby girl to take a bottle this week, huge accomplishment. As much as I love her, I can see baby-free nights in my future!

  1. That’s good news on your baby. Our nine month old finally started sleeping through the night a month or so ago. I am a little scared though about what our grocery bill will look like as he gets older, that boy eats everything!

  2. haha that’s funny! If you start budgeting now you should be fine 🙂

  3. I hope you enjoy the low-key fun! We just had a conversation in our church group last night about how my wife and I don’t fit in with most of the 20-somethings within our church. LOL. Good thing our small group is filled with the 35+ crowd. 🙂 They’re pretty low-key and our kind of fun!

  5. I’m not sure if I had said this already but Happy Birthday! No worries, from what I hear babies grow up fast. First it’s trying to get them to take the bottle then it’s trying to keep them satisfied with “back to school” clothing shopping. Times fly!

  9. Thanks for mentioning me. I don’t have kids yet, but I’d imagine that it’s really hard to get away (esp. when they’re little). Enjoy that pedicure! Maybe make a day of it with lunch and a movie!
