Yesterday was a busy day...Alex's eye doctor appt, my one "up north" day for the week, and dinner with friends. We didn't get to see Grandma Schurman this time, and we're sad :( We hope you feel better soon, Grandma!
After the eye doctor, we stopped by Crown Point Christian to visit Uncle David and the office staff. We didn't stay long, but popped in to say hi.
Sabrina has a toy called Bounce & Spin Zebra, and Karen has mentioned that Sabrina just loves it. Target stores have it on clearance for $22, and it's a $40 toy. I had to visit 3 different Target stores to find it, and apparently not every Target has the same clearance prices. I payed $31, but I had a $5 off $25 coupon to bring it down to $26. I guess that's not too bad. Now it's put away until my little guy turns 1...and I just can't imagine that ever happening. He's going to be my baby forever! ;)
After all our Target stops, we went to Meijer to do a little grocery shopping. Got home, put away the groceries, got in a quick nap for Alex, Daddy came home, and we headed back out again for dinner at Jack & Angie's house. We had yummy chicken! I might want that recipe, Angie! Angie also made root beer floats. I haven't had one of those in ages. Yum! Thanks! ;)
Emma showed us how she rides her 2-wheeler and how she reads, both of which are impressive skills at 5 1/2! Emma & Jackson were proud to show us their rooms, toys, and their cool little 4-wheeler. They are so darn cute! :)
Since I'm writing this on Thursday morning, I can add...Alex is doing a totally new sleep thing this week. He's going to bed as usual at 10 PM, waking at 4 AM, and then sleeping until 8:30/8:45 AM instead of his usual 6:10 AM. So now we've got one less nap in the day, but a much longer night's sleep for him. While I don't appreciate the 4 AM wake-up, I'm glad he's getting better nighttime sleep. We'll see how long this lasts.
Today is a boring, stay-at-home day. Good! My house could use some cleaning. Maybe I'll actually manage to mop the kitchen floor...
