Savannah is down for a nap so I thought I’d take advantage of the silence to update my blog! I know, I’ve been rather ignoring it as of late. I’m not sure what there is to say. I’ve been pretty busy, getting ready for Christmas. We put up a tree and decorated it, but I don’t think we will do any more decorating. Our house is in a chaotic state because we had to move everything around to make room for the tree, and I would have to clean up to decorate… and I don’t have the energy to do either.
I never thought there would be a day when I would be okay with not decorating for Christmas! To be honest, I think I’d even be okay if we didn’t have a tree! :-o I know what you’re thinking, who are you and what have you done to Ashley? I guess it’s true that having a baby changes you…
I was excited to decorate outside. I wanted to put up those lighted reindeer and something cool to line the driveway. But… we don’t have any outlets outside, and I’m not sure how to get power to the outside otherwise. I’m sure there’s a solution, I just don’t feel like figuring it out. Maybe next year.
I’ve been busy getting into a routine with Savannah. I’m trying to pay close attention to her cues, making sure that I’m putting her down when she’s sleepy and feeding her when she’s hungry. I’ve noticed she gets tired about 2 hours after we get up, so I’m trying to get up at 9 and then putting her down for her nap around 11. I haven’t figured out the afternoon nap yet, but we’re getting there.
I’ve also been trying to cook more. I have been shopping at Aldi’s, trying to be good about our weekly menu so we aren’t as tempted to eat out. So far it’s working. I am glad because we really need to cut back on our eating out budget. And, I need to not be so afraid of the kitchen. :-)
Oh… Savannah’s up. So I guess I’ll write more later.
